Hair loss happens to be a very common problem not only in Pakistan but all over the world. This issue is common among both men and women. There are many causes as to why people lose hair. One of the main causes is genetics. Whereby the hormone, testosterone is converted by the follicles into another hormone known as dihydrotestosterone which causes follicles to shrink in size leading to no growth in that area or very thin growth. Other common reasons are stress, hormonal imbalance (for women especially), harsh weather conditions and pollution. Hair treatment in Pakistan is based on the cause of shedding and our clinic in Lahore during initial consultation, we diagnose the reason and then offer hair loss solution. The causes are not limited and treatments are based on diagnosis and cause.
In most cases, hair loss for men and women is temporary or is a natural part of ageing and so it does not require any serious or major treatment, as they tend to grow back. However, if it really makes an individual feel conscious, the following treatments are available.
- Wigs: Traditionally before the advent of surgeries and effective medications, people wore wigs especially men for baldness. Although it looked unnatural then, today wigs look very natural and one reason for this is probably because they are made up of real hair. For women also, wigs are very common. Furthermore, hair extensions have also become a trend whereby the fullness of the hair is restored.
- Medication: medication is often given to both men and women to curtail and prevent baldness. There are two medicines that help. The first is Finasteride and the second, Minoxidil. They both work by halting the alteration of testosterone (a hormone) into dihydrotestosterone (this hormone causes the follicles to shrink in size). The follicles are thus not affected by this hormone and can enlarge back to normal. Finasteride is a tablet whereas Minoxidil is a lotion that needs to be rubbed on the scalp. Women are usually prescribed Minoxidil, which is a lotion that needs to be rubbed on the scalp every day. It slows hair fall and increases growth. The problem with medication is that it is not a permanent solution. In most cases, it will benefit the patient especially if the patient is a woman going through a hormonal imbalance due to which hair loss is suffered. Therefore, medicines will work for her. However, in case of a man who is suffering from androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) which cannot be corrected via the use of medicines, the only option left is a surgery. Various treatments are available in Pakistan like surgical as well as non surgical.
- Hair Transplant Surgery: if medicines do not end up working as they should, the last option left is a hair transplant surgery. A hair restoration surgery is a procedure carried out under local anesthesia by a surgeon to correct severe cases of alopecia usually resulting in baldness. The surgery usually involves transferring grafts from one place on the scalp to another to correct pattern baldness. Once transplanted, the hair grows out from the area like normal and therefore is a much better option than wigs or medicines as it takes hardly a few hours for the surgery to be completed and the results are quick. Furthermore, since it’s a minor surgery there are very little risks involved. The treatment is offered after careful evaluation whether transplanted hair will grow or not? Our clinic offers various hair treatments in Pakistan by a foreign qualified doctors.
