The Benefits of Hair Loss Treatment in Erlanger KY
Hair loss is a hard thing for anybody to grapple with, and women specifically. While it is typically thought to be a male problem, it is also something that affects women as well. It is a problem of several people. Hair loss is crucial to avoid, but a lot of people find that it’s difficult, this is a cure to assist.
Hair loss is a typical problem which is frequently experienced by both women and men and can be brought about by quite a few distinct things including poor diet plan and genetics. It is not cured with just a month or two into any treatment. It is not just a simple appearance problem. The loss of hair because of nutrient-deficient condition can be corrected with the correct diet including adequate heights of all important minerals and vitamins.
Hair Loss Treatment: the Ultimate Convenience!
Hair can start to fall out for a lot of reasons. It can be extremely frustrating and difficult, if you want to quit losing hair, to purchase plenty of different products which do not do the job. Beautiful and healthful hair enhances your personality.
The main cause of hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia. It is one of the most common problems experienced by men and women all over the world. It will probably halt the loss of hair in most of men, but the quantity of regrowth will be dependent on the person.
There are several types of hair loss and balding. While the mechanism of the phenomenon of hair loss and baldness is not fully understood, there is vast knowledge on the ability to treat the types of hair loss and baldness by medication or natural means.
We are dividing the alopecia types into treatable and non-treatable conditions and we shall hereby explain how one can evaluate the chances of successful treatment in the treatable conditions.
When evaluating the chances of improving the condition of the hair, the most important criteria is the condition of the hair follicles. As long as the hair follicles are alive, there is a chance to grow new hair. Otherwise, there is no basis for any treatment to succeed and the only options are cosmetic- wig, hair transplant etc.
Life period of the hair follicles may reach up to twenty-five years. The hair follicles grow hair in cycles of growth and fall. In the process of hair loss, each cycle of growth produces shorter, thinner hair and there is less pigment (color).
When the scalp has a bright plume, it indicates that the hair follicle is still alive but dormant. Given the appropriate specialist’s knowledge and therapy, the hair follicle can be stimulated to grow hair. However if the surface is completely smooth, it indicates that the hair follicle is no longer alive and there is zero chance to grow hair- except in some cases as explained below (Alopecia Areata, Totalis and Universalis).
The different types of hair loss and the chances of growth of new hair are hereby given.
Non Treatable conditions
The conditions of hair loss which have no chance of hair regrowth are: Alopecia from birth, Scarring Alopecia, Traction Alopecia and Lupus disease.
Alopecia from birth is a rare condition, where the infant is born without hair follicles.
In Scarring Alopecia the infected zone looks like a scar and the hair follicles are dead. The reasons of the phenomena are unknown. The chances of growing new hair are zero, but with proper treatment the expansion of the Scarring Alopecia can be stopped.
In Traction Alopecia the hair is pulled out of the scalp and the hair follicle becomes weak and dies.
In alopecia which is caused by Lupus disease, the skin is rough and pink and the chances of growth of hair is almost non existent.
The conditions of hair loss which has a chance to be treated successfully are: Male Pattern Alopecia, Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis.
Male Pattern Alopecia is common male baldness. It’s characteristics are loss of hair at the front and crown area first. In many cases, there is still at least hair plume, hair loss and baldness can be stopped by affecting the hair follicles.
In Alopecia Areata condition, typical round hair loss patches evolve rapidly. Sometimes the bald patches spread to full hair loss of the scalp (Alopecia Totalis) or even whole body areas (Alopecia Universalis). The phenomenon could harm men, women and small children. Conventional medicine assumes the Alopecia Areata condition is an autoimmune disease, though the exact mechanism of Alopecia Areata is not known nor fully understood.
In many cases Alopecia Areata is caused by psychological pressure: people who experienced trauma have sometimes lost entire hair within hours or days.
Evaluating Chances of Successful Treatment
As explained in the introduction, the condition of the hair follicles is the most important criteria for evaluating the chances of successful treatment. Existence of thin white hair is a visible sign for living hair follicles. The thin white hair can be noticed when examining the scalp from close distance, with good light conditions. Sometimes viewing the scalp from an angle against light source helps to see the thin white hair.
Naturally, when there is thin white hair on the alopecia area, it indicates that the hair follicles are weak but alive, so there is a basis to grow hair, given the proper treatment. But when the alopecia area is smooth, the evaluation depends on the alopecia type:
In male pattern alopecia condition, smooth scalp is a clear indication that the hair follicles are not alive and there is no chance to grow new hair. However in Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis the hair follicles sometimes remain alive even if the alopecia area is smooth and evaluating the condition of the hair follicles should take into consideration other important factors.
The factors which play important role in the condition of the hair follicles and hence the chances of success:
– Age of the patient: at younger age there are higher chances to recover
– Period with Alopeia Areata condition: if the condition is recent, the chances are higher. Among people who experienced Alopecia Areata for decades, the hair follicles are probably too weak.
– Alopecia Areata condition was due to a shock: In those cases, the chances of recovery are better.
– Use of violent and inappropriate treatment: Some treatments cause permanent damage to the hair follicles. In such cases, even if there is growth of hair, it is common that once the treatment is stopped the hair falls and the hair follicles remain weaker, which makes it harder to stimulate growth.
– Thin white hair: as previously explained, if there is thin white hair the chances of recovery increase.
– Use of wig: When a wig is applied, the scalp’s skin is not normally exposed to air and is not breathing (skin is not able to absorb oxygen). In cases of wig users, the chances of recovery are lower. If wig is attached by glue, chances are near zero.
It should be emphasized that these are general guidelines for treatment success chances, based on experience with a population of Alopecia Areata patients. A personal evaluation is required in order to accurately evaluate the success chances of a specific person.
Choosing the Right Treatment
There are natural or medication therapies which are intended to revive the hair roots. When considering medication treatment, it is advised to consult with a specialist dermatologist and inquire about possible side effects. The internet includes vast information about the side effects of conventional treatments. In case of natural treatments, it is advised to seek for a treatment which is certified by a recognized organization. The treatment should be certified for being safe for usage and without any side effects. In order to be certified for zero side effects, the treatment should contain only herbs and plants with the maximal safety degree – edible herbs- as defined by the U.S. CTFA list of plants.

That is the question that motivates Dr. Brett Bolton, a hair transplant surgeon in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Today’s ‘gold standard’ of hair transplantation is not high enough for Dr. Bolton who has specialized in hair restoration since 1997. In the late 90’s he was fortunate enough to enter the field of hair transplant surgery during a transitional time when technology was being shaped. Outdated techniques like the large chunky hair plugs, punch grafts and flap surgeries Erlanger Kentucky were on their way out and the defining new technique of follicular unit transplantation (FUT) was just cresting the horizon. Dr. Bolton’s vantage point at that time could not have been any better. He learned from the mistakes of other hair doctors as he repaired bad transplants, and he also gleaned valuable techniques from talented surgeons like the late Dr. Constantine Chambers who did wonders with old technology, especially in the crown area.
With FUT, doctors transplant small slit grafts which contain only one hair bundle. These grafts are harvested from a single strip of donor tissue and separated under a microscope. They contain a naturally occurring bundle of 1-4 hairs. The result is very natural-looking but Dr. Bolton would argue that there is not enough hair density to give patients a satisfying outcome with 1-4 hair grafts only.
In the early 2000’s, it became exceptionable for doctors to perform surgeries using anything other than FUT. However, Dr. Bolton had already developed a method of transplantation using a mixture of graft sizes that far outperformed the standard follicular unit transplantation. He was not willing to cast off a technique that was proving to be extremely successful in his practice despite pressure from peers. Instead, he refined and developed this approach and proudly applies Multi-Unit Hair Grafting , which he co-developed at PAI Medical Group in Nashville, Tennessee. By using a combination of micrografts (single hair grafts), follicular units and multiple follicular unit grafts, which is a slit graft containing 2 to 3 follicular units, Dr. Bolton gives patients 2-3 times the density compared to other doctors who use FUT only.
Some of Dr. Bolton’s peers suggest in error that multi-unit grafts are old style hair plugs. These new style slit grafts are slightly larger than standard follicular units. Separated under a microscope just like follicular units, these multi-unit grafts are not harvested with a punch biopsy instrument. This insures hardiness of the delicate hair follicles and surrounding tissue. They are never used in the frontal hairline and are strategically placed throughout the vertex and crown to make the most of density. This style of transplantation is so unique, Dr. Bolton cannot even charge by the graft because it simply doesn’t translate. Instead, he charges by hair volume. When compared to competitors, hair for hair, Dr. Bolton’s surgery is the best value in the industry.

Post Partum Hair Loss?
I Had My Daughter Almost 3 And A Half Months Ago.. And Lately My Hair Has Been Falling Out. I Dont Mean A Stand Here And There, I Mean Its Falling Out A Lot. What Is Going On? Is There Anything I Can Do To Help This? I Feel Like I'M Balding Lol!
anyway hair loss can be caused by many different reasons! Find out the actual cause of hair loss! There are many causes of loss of hair such as stress, poor nutrition ,medications, thyroid dysfunctions, illness, fungal infections ,hormonal problems, to mention a few. but anyway you can always try and get real results.
year ago I suffered from hair loss too and I started trying everything you can imagine to stop my hair loss.
the things that really worked for me was:
1) Vitamin A - an anti-oxidant which promotes healthy production of sebum in the scalp;
2) Vitamin E stimulates circulation. Good blood circulation in the scalp is important in keeping hair follicles productive. The 'B' vitamins contribute to melanin, which gives hair its healthy color and also stimulates blood circulation;
3) massage is also beneficial. Massage stimulates circulation. As already noted, good circulation in the scalp keeps hair follicles active. Experts suggest a few minutes of daily head massage by hand. Circulation through massage may be improved by using a few drops of lavender or bay essential oil in an almond or sesame oil base with massage;
4) Try rubbing your scalp with garlic juice, Onion Juice or Ginger Juice(you can either of one out of three, Do not mix any of two or three);
5) also you should use some herbal treatment.in that case Provillus is a good product that helps prevent hair loss and it is an FDA approved product. I think it is very important!
It worked and still works for me!
I do not know if any pharmacies carry Provillus but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.provillus.com/?aid=749165

Is Male Pattern Baldness Hereditary?
At Around 22 Yrs Old My Husband Began Losing His Hair. I Think I Am A Big Part Of This Stressing Him Lol, But Now At 25 It Doesn'T Seem To Get Better And I See Where Our Two Yr Olds Hair Is Thinning In The Front Is There A Way We Can Stop This? Please Help Me
Male pattern baldness is a trait that is inherited from both parents. Mostly from the father. It is caused by the production of dihydrotestosterone. This does not usually occur until after puberty. If your two yr. old (son, I assume) is actually experiencing hair loss in the front you should take him to the doctor for a checkup. There are other conditions that cause hair loss in children. See the website below for more info on that. The only present treatment for male pattern baldness is Rogaine (Minoxidil). It prevents continuing hair loss and in some cases promotes some regrowth. Once started you have to continue treatment or the hair loss progresses.
Hi I'M 17 And I Have Long Hair Down To My Butt But I Cant Cut It (Because Of My And My Parents Beliefs), But I Keep Loosing Lots And Lots Of Hair Everyday..And Im Afraid That If I Keep Loosing It, I Might Go Bald And Then I'D Have To Go Thru Hair Surgery To Get It Back Which Would Cost Like Thousands, So Does Anyone Know Of Anything I Can Do So That It Will Reduce My Hair Loss (Other Than Cutting It)? Thanks Heaps! Ox
There are many causes of hair loss: genetics, old age, medications, stress, and your health. I had a client once that always stressed out about losing her hair, I told her to stop stressing about it, it's making her lose more! Also her diet was awful! She ate rice and eggs mostly. Also a good fact to know is: you lose approx. 100 strands of hair every day! I hope this helps! Good luck!
How Effective Is Laser Therapy Or Treatment For Hair Regrowth?
Are There Any Doctors Here Or Someone With An Actual Experience Who Can Put Some Light On This Process.
The lighter your hair is, the less effective that laser treatments are. Red heads have an especially difficult time seeing results. At the very best, it takes longer. The best thing you can do is find one who is offering free consultations and a money back guarantee. That way, if your hair doesn't respond to the treatments, you haven't lost anything!! Good luck!

With Female Pattern Baldness Do You Eventually Lose All Your Hair? And Is There Anything To Do To Stop It And
Regrow Please Help Im Very Upset Thankyou?
Try antiandrogens - Cyproterone acetate is one of the strongest. But you'd have to be on it forever. When you stop therapy, it just all falls out. Also try thymuskin, aminexil, ducray anastim, phytotrixil - topicals. They're not like miracle drugs. But if you consistently use them (alternating between them), their combined action would improve your hair and grow some back (if you're on antiandrogens and did not have this problem for many years, you can regrow most of your hair). Take B-complex vitamins and biotine supplement, also supplements containing sulfur (MSM would do) and Omega acids.
Do not start using minoxidil! Helps very small percentage of people and stops working in couple of years after which hair falls out even worse.
Females usually don't lose all their hair from pattern baldness but it can get extremly thin. There is no currently cure. So you have to live with it like with a diabetes - a chronical condition that you have to treat on a daily basis.
Does Min New York Detox Cleansing Treatment And Min New York Agent Topical Hair Loss Treatment Actually Work?
I Am A 17 Year Old Boy And My Hair Is Starting To Thin Pretty Bad On The Top My Head. I Have Been Researching Many Different Products To Slow Hair-Loss And Possibly Regrow Hair And I Have Seen These Specific Ones Come Up Multiple Times. I'M Just Looking For Some Opinions On These Products. Do They Actually Work And How Long Do They Take?
Biotin Zinc Sulfate, Azelac Acid Saw Palmetto, Procapil, and Copper Peptide are the main ingredients of this product.
These are well known substances in hair loss treatment. You should always check the label.
I've been using the Detox cleansing treatment and shampoo for 3 months, and it seems to slow the hair loss by 50%. The cleansing treatment does not clean very well, but the shampoo works great.
Cornrows For Balding Hair?
Im A 19 Year Old Male And My Hair Is Balding A Little At The Front. When I Got My First Cornrows I Had It In For 15 Days And When I Took Them Off I Lost A Lot Of Hair Aspecially At The Front. I Notice That Now I Have Lesser Hair At The Front Than Before Getting The Braids. I Really Want To Cornrow My Hair Again. Do You Think It Will Cause More Baldness?
honestly, yes i think it will cause more baldness. Because cornrows are really tight braid style and pull the front of your hair back. so it's just gonna worsen the baldness at the front, since its applying too much pressure on it. if i were you, i would put castor oil (search it, if you dont know what it is), at the front of your hair. i heard that helps hair loss. Dont put any braid styles until the balding is gone.
