What Causes Age Spots Or Liver Spots?
Hair loss is referred to as “Alopecia” in medical terms and its most common manifestations are, Alopecia Areata, Androgenic Alopecia and Telogen Effluvium. Other less common forms of Alopecia are, Traction Alopecia, Cicatricial Alopecia and Alopecia Totalis or Universalis. A detailed description has been provided below to help gain a better understanding of the causes and the measures that can be taken to cure each form of baldness.
Usually caused as a combination of genetics and hormones, every hair follicle is genetically programmed to get affected by various hormone related imbalances in the body. The weaker follicles tend to get damaged when facing these hormones, causing the hair from that particular region to first shed and then gradually become thinner and finer with each regrowth until, the follicle itself succumbs and dies. The quantity of hair lost due to this varies from person to person and cannot be predicted. However, since the condition has a lot to do with genetics, the problem itself can be predicted fairly easily. Genetic hair loss is progressive which implies that once this form of hair loss has begun, it will continue at a quicker or slower pace. The three forms of that have proven to be effective against treatment for Androgenic Alopecia are not cures against it, they merely delay complete baldness.
Treatment For Androgenic Alopecia:
FinasterideIt is a drug that interrupts the production of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that damages genetically weaker hair, to stop it from contacting weak hair cells, thus slowing or stopping hair loss. This prescription medicine is effective only in men when eaten on a daily basis.
MinoxidilIt is applied topically and widens the blood vessels, allowing more blood, oxygen, and nutrients to reach the hair follicles. It is a topical medicine that must be applied daily to be effective and maintain any results.
Low-Level-Light-TherapyIt uses red light at a specific strength and frequency to stimulate the follicles, increasing their cellular efficiency and causing the hair to regrow. All three forms of treatment, require consistent use and some hair left in the follicle to be show positive outcomes.
Alopecia Totalis & Universalis are variations of Alopecia Areata in the sense that they both are autoimmune diseases that cause the hair loss. However, while Areata is limited to causing hair loss in small patches on the scalp, Totalis causes hair fall on the entirety of the scalp and Universalis causes hair loss across the body.
Cictricial Alopecia refers to hair loss due to hair follicles being damaged and converted into scar tissue, thus causing permanent hair loss. Since this takes place as a combination of many skin diseases, a doctor is required to use a combination of treatments that may not always arrest the spread of this condition.
