Hair loss is a big problem for both men and women. Even in childhood, many patients come to me with the problem of hair loss. As a dermatologist, my priority is always to find the cause of hair loss. Because hair is structures that can tell us some problems related to blood or our hormonal stability in the early period.
When do we accept it as a disease in a person who comes with hair loss?
If it started suddenly and outside of season transition periods.
If more than 75 strands of hair are falling every day
If the woman has menstrual irregularity, hair growth in the beard and mustache style and acne
If weight loss or weight gain, sweating a lot, weakness accompanies
If it has been going on for more than a month, a quick examination should be done.
After detecting these clinical findings in my patients, if necessary, I check the general blood count, thyroid tests, and vitamin and mineral levels according to my examination findings.
I often catch diseases that come with hair loss, anemia, and hormonal conditions, especially thyroid or diabetes.
Early diagnosis in the initial stage is very costly. Therefore, if you have the complaints I mentioned, it is imperative to go to the doctor without wasting time. At this stage, vegetable oils, and especially cosmetic shampoos or care lotions bought by paying a lot of money, do not serve anything other than a waste of time.
If there is no problem in the tests, herbal and soft shampoos recommended by the doctor, if necessary, care oils and sometimes herbal extract tablets can be used. It is therapeutic. However, the most valuable bet is to continue with patience for at least 3 months.
Since genetic predisposition is at the forefront in male pattern hair loss, the treatment given by the physician can be continued for many years. The treatment of this bet will be explained in a different topic.
As a dermatologist, my advice to people with hair loss is to rule out the disease first, and then to continue the treatment for at least 3 months. However, my approach would be to give vitamin mineral injections to the scalp for individuals who want a quicker response or who do not want to use rubbing drugs. This process is mesotherapy. In some cases, I also apply PRP with stem cells taken from the person’s own blood.
Wishing you healthy days…
