ANDROGENIC ALOPECIA

This type of alopecia is developed in the scalp and is also known as genetic hair loss.

Get to know more about androgenic alopecia treatments.

Know all About ANDROGENIC ALOPECIA

Hair loss caused by androgenic alopecia presents itself as a pattern. Hair loss starts from the front part of your hairline and then on the lower part of your head. Your hair will lose length, color and thickness. When the illness has developed, both areas will meet, generating a horseshoe design around your head.

The best way to identify whether you have androgenic alopecia is to get a clinical diagnosis, just go to a doctor and get him to look at the affected area. There are some special cases when the patient will need a hormonal study.
The androgenic alopecia treatment is used for the most common type of alopecia, which affects 40% of the men in the world, but it is estimated that also 20% of the women in the world are affected by it.

What are the treatments for androgenic alopecia?

There are many medical treatments for androgenic alopecia, but the definitive one is hair transplant.

There is no medical treatment that completely eradicates androgenic alopecia, but it is possible to solve through a surgical procedure: experts recommend hair transplant using the FUE technique.

The hair transplant treatment consists in using the patient own hair and transplanting it on to the affected area. Once the hair is transplanted, it will stay in place forever.

Who does androgenic alopecia affect?

Men with genetic predisposition for alopecia frequently start to lose their hair at 25 years old, but there are patients who start at earlier ages:
  • Young and adult women
  • Young and adult men
This means that if you have androgenic alopecia there is a higher possibility that your children and grandchildren suffer from it too in some stage of their lives.

What causes androgenic alopecia?

If you have a history of hair loss in your family, it is probable that you have already lost your hair or that you will in the future. Androgenic alopecia has a solution.

Apart from the aesthetic reasons, having hair reduces the impact of UV rays on your scalp, reducing the possibilities of skin cancer.

Etiology of alopecia, or the causes

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is produced when the 5-alpha reductase enzyme acts on testosterone. The levels of DHT and its receptors cause constant injuries to the hair follicle, leading to alopecia.

This way, the hair is constantly getting weaker and weaker, and when the natural change of hair occurs, this is produced thinner each time. In the end, these follicles stop working correctly and the hair that has fallen is not replaced. This is when the first areas with hair loss appear.

Nonetheless, according to research on androgenic alopecia, the weakening of the follicles does not depend on high levels of DHT, but of the genetic predisposition of the hair follicles.

BEARD AND EYEBROW
ALOPECIA

Beard and eyebrow hair transplant in Tijuana is suited for those who are losing hair in cheeks, chin, neck, sideburns, and eyebrows.

Beard hair transplant

One of the main problems of beard alopecia is the aesthetic one. The hair does not cover the entire area. In these cases, men start to lose their sideburns, the beard is not thick or the mustache does not entirely grow.

There are different causes for this type of alopecia. One of the main reasons is genetics, each face has a genetic pattern that dictates the amount of hair one has. Among other causes is alopecia areata, which is caused by a bacteria or fungus infection or chemotherapy.

Beard and eyebrow alopecia treatment varies from person to person, but most of the time we use the same treatments used for hair loss.

Eyebrow hair transplant

This type of alopecia is an aesthetic disorder characterized by the loss of hair in the area above the eyes -the eyebrows. Eyebrow alopecia is related to aging, but it’s not the only reason for it to appear.

Among the causes are:
  • Traumatisms caused by punches or blows.
  • Chemotherapy.
  • Traumatisms caused by burns.
  • Alopecia areata.
  • Badly-done depilation.
  • Psychological disorders.
  • Medicines.

SCAR REPAIR AND TRACTION ALOPECIA

Scar repair and traction alopecia causes hair loss and develops from injured follicles, with our traction alopecia treatment and hair transplant for scar repair in HMR Tijuana, you can forget all about hair loss.

Traction alopecia treatment

Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss that presents itself mostly in women who style their hair using tension frequently. This generates a continuous and permanent injury on the hair follicle causing the hair to weaken and eventually fall down.

It can also be triggered by the constant use of hair styling instruments such as straighteners and blow dryers. The use of extensions and dye can cause hair loss in some areas, too.

Traction alopecia can be identified by these symptoms:
  • Dandruff and thinning hair.
  • Considerable hair loss when brushing hair.
  • Itching or pain in the affected area.

In both traction alopecia and scarring alopecia, hair follicles are permanently injured, which is why the best recommended treatment is hair transplant.

Scarring alopecia treatment

Scarring alopecia —or cicatricial alopecia— is caused by an existing injury, be it a traumatic injury or a surgical one. This causes the hair follicle to get damaged permanently by the trauma or by the scarring process (fibrosis).

Scars develop from traumatisms such as blows or burns, but they can also arise from surgical procedures such as a craniotomy, the Follicular Unit Transplant technique, forehead surgery, rhytidectomy, and more.

Craniotomies are usually emergency procedures attending brain injuries or encephalic traumatisms, and they are done through incisions on the scalp.
  • Dandruff and thinning hair.
  • Considerable hair loss when brushing hair.
  • Itching or pain in the affected area.

ALOPECIA BY INFECTION

What causes Alopecia by infection?
