Alopecia Areata, Causes, SIgns and Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment.
Women’s Hair Loss
Androgenetic alopecia is not as common in women as in men, as it affects 25% of women up to the age of 50. It is more common after menopause and the pattern is different from male pattern baldness, as the anterior frontal line is preserved and diffuse thinning and thinning of the hair is observed, which rarely leads to total baldness.
In women, hair loss is more often associated with hormonal factors, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary and adrenal dysfunction, taking contraceptives or corticosteroids, and C syndrome. It is also affected by hormone fluctuations during pregnancy, lactation and menopause.
Other Forms of Hair Loss for Men and Women
Diffuse hair loss (diffuse alopecia)
Diffuse hair loss is the second most common form of hair loss treated in dermatological clinics. Manifested by diffuse thinning and thinning of the hair, with the phenomenon being more pronounced at the top of the head compared to the sides or back. There is usually no receding of the frontal line and it never leads to all hair loss.
Often an environmental factor is responsible for causing a “shock” to the hair follicles that are in the growth phase, as a result of which they enter prematurely at a resting phase and intense hair loss follows. Usually, it takes 1-2 months from the moment of the “shock” until the phenomenon is observed.
What can cause diffuse alopecia? Diffuse alopecia can be caused by several causes. The more persistent the cause, the longer the duration of the presence of diffuse alopecia. Some of the most common causes are:
- Childbirth (postpartum alopecia)
- Strict diet
- Lack of iron, zinc, vitamins B6, B12 and D and other nutrients
- Thyroid disorders
- Serious injury (eg car accident)
- Taking certain medicines (eg antidepressants, chemotherapy)
- Chronic diseases
- Chronic stress
Gyroid alopecia is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles recognizing them as foreign bodies. Depending on the case, there is a greater or lesser thinning of the scalp. Some people lose only a few tufts, while others lose all their hair (total gyroid alopecia). Gyroid alopecia can affect the eyebrows and eyelashes, as well as hair growth throughout the body (universal gyroid alopecia).
Other forms of hair loss are:
- the follicular lichen,
- the discoid lupus erythematosus.
Hair Loss Treatment – Diagnosis
Hair loss has a very large psychological impact, as its consequences are located in the head, around which revolves the modern aesthetic perception that we have, in general, of our appearance.
The large number and the many types of causes of the disease, motivate us to diagnose and treat hair loss in the right way. To achieve this, however, we must properly stage and monitor the progression of the disease during treatment, so as to reach accurate and detailed conclusions. Dr. Tzermias and his team, who have 25 years of experience and specialization in valid diagnosis and effective treatment of hair loss, apply Trichoscopically Controlled Hair Loss Treatment, which is based on the examination of hair loss both in terms of diagnosis and evaluation of effectiveness.
Hair removal is always the initial stage in order to treat hair loss.
The hairs gradually thin, with the result that the thinning is not immediately apparent, to the extent that the sufferer himself does not notice it from the beginning. As a result, it is impossible to compare its course.
As a result, it is easy to see why scalp care should be taken before applying any treatment for hair loss.
The method of trichoscopy is ideal for diagnosing diseases observed on the scalp, as noted in the review International Journal of Trichology. With the help of a manual dermatoscope or video microscope with polarized light, the hairs are dermatologized and then the images are automatically analyzed through a modern software program (IQ software) that provides detailed information about the health status of the hair follicles. The condition of the hair follicles (number, quality, thickness of the hair) is fully recorded every 3 or 6 months, which helps us to compare the effectiveness of the treatment we propose, since in this way we are able to record every square centimeter on the surface of the head , both before and after the treatment method.
Each hair scan is a recording and measurement of the following data:
- The number of hair follicles that already exist
- The corresponding number of hairs
- Hair thickness
- The number of single hair follicles
The digital images that emerge along with the diagnosis are a point of reference. They are kept in the file of each interested party and help us to monitor the patient, but also to compare the results for the outcome of the incident.
It enables us to:
- Have a clear and scientifically proven diagnosis for the type of hair loss.
- It is an excellent criterion for the effectiveness of the medical treatment of the disease.
- The importance of hair removal is crucial in monitoring any treatment for hair loss over time.
- We can accurately calculate the available hair follicles in the donor area, which can be transferred in case of hair transplantation.
Each dermatoscopy of the patient is kept in an electronic file, in a detailed electronic file and is always at his disposal, so that his hair loss and treatment are monitored continuously and in the right way.
With hair removal, the basic stage in the treatment of hair loss takes place.
