Androgenetic alopecia is the most common form of hair loss and accounts for around 35-35% of the cases. As the name indicates it has a genetic component and involves the male hormone Testosterone, though indirectly. Testosterone is converted into Di-Hydro-Testosterone (DHT). Follicles in the hair loss prone areas are sensitive to DHT, but the sensitivity may vary greatly. Which is why some hair is lost early and other hairs may last much longer. There are certain differences between hair loss in men and hair loss in women.
Many patients may try various shampoos, oils, herbal medicines, tablets, ointments and miracle treatments to stop the hair loss. Although, there are many “treatments” available only very few of them have any documented effect. These include
FUE Hair Transplantation: FUE hair transplant is a permanent solution to hair loss as it does not require any maintenance.
Microneedling: Your body’s own healing and repairing processes are used to stimulate the hair follicles slowing down hair loss and regrowing hair.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): The healing, repair and growth properties of your own blood is used to stimulate the dormant hair follicles.
Finasteride & Dutasteride: Tradenames are Propecia and Avodart. Revivor Hair does not generally recommend these treatments as they may cause impotence and decreased sex-drive. However, in some selected patients these medications may be an option.
Generally, only to be used by men.
Minoxidil 5%: Also called Regaine, Rogaine and Hair Max Plus. Can be used by both men and women. May slow down hair loss and in few cases limited regrowth may be seen.
In some selected cases of non-androgenetic alopecia other treatment options may be considered such as DCPC, steroid injections, hormone therapy or supplements.
