Abstract :

Every day we lose from scalp an average of 100 hairs. This daily loss is normal and in most individuals, the new hairs will grow and replace the lost ones. Certain medical conditions like lupus, diabetes or thyroid problems can cause hair loss. Sometimes patient may lose hairs due to malnutrition like low protein diet, chronic iron loss or when under chemotherapy for cancer treatment. Still in medical conditions, syphilis, decalvant folliculitis, caused by bacteria, Tinea capiti, caused by fungi can affect the scalp cause hair loss A condition named areata alopecia affects child and adults and till today there is no conclusion about its cause. This form of alopecia may present as a sole small patch that cures spontaneously, as several patches and can affect the scalp totally or become universal, which mean loss of all hair of the body and sometimes may be permanent. This is considered to be an autoimmune condition. Some of these patients have history of vitiligo, thyroid dysfunction or atopy. To treat hair loss is necessary to know and understand its cause. In many cases, the treatment of the cause will solve the problem. The problem is when men and also women without a specific disease start losing hair as they grow older and there is no replacement. This is what we call androgenic alopecia. This is the most common form of hair loss and as the name says is a condition inherited. This condition may affect equally men and women, but in most women the gene expression is less visible. Current treatments (minoxidil and finasteride) for this type of alopecia do not bring the best results in most patients. We will present here how we treat this form of alopecia with impressive results using a combination of techniques.
