Understanding Hair Loss: Types and Treatments


What Causes Age Spots Or Liver Spots?

Encountering loss of hair is normal as one grows older, however there are certain instances wherein hair loss is caused due to reasons other than old age.
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.

Alopecia Areata

It is an autoimmune disorder which starts with one or more bald circles on the scalp that are usually of the size of a coin. These circles can move, multiply, grow anywhere on the skin. No single treatment has been exceptionally effective for preventing Alopecia Areata, however doctors tend to recommend steroid and cortisone injections, scalp irritants like Anthralin cream, or Topical Immunotherapy and Low-Level-Light Therapy to regrow lost hair.

Androgenic Alopecia

Also Known as patterned baldness is the most common type of hair loss and affects 70 percent of men and 40 percent of women. In men, this type of hair loss is usually characterized by either a receding hair line, a loss of hair in the crown region of the head or “bald spot” or a general thinning of hair coverage throughout the top of the head. In some cases, all three characteristics may become evident at different stages. Men generally begin to experience androgenic alopecia in their early 20s, although it can take years before becoming noticeable. Women do not experience such early or region specific hair loss but tend to experience gradual and overall thinning of hair on their scalp around their late-30s or early 40s.
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:



It 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.


It 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.


It 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.

Telogen Effluvium

It is a situation where more hair is in the dormant phase (telogen) than the growth phase (anagen). This type of hair loss can be very unpredictable but it is typically not permanent, and hair often grows back once causes like stress decrease or hormones regain a healthy balance.

Traction Alopecia

It is characterised by hair loss caused due to continuous pulling of the hair and the hair follicles. Though hair from such places can often grow back, continued pressure over extended periods of time can cause permanent hair loss.
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.
