Losing hair is often a temporary situation and can the result of scalp condition, stress, vitamin deficiency, illness, chemotherapy and the side effects of certain medications. Male and female pattern baldness is a hereditary condition and is permanent. Often women have thinning hair as they age, particularly after the menopause.
Androgenic Alopecia is the permanent hair loss condition suffered by men – and, to an extent, women. In men it usually affects the hairline and temples, in women it can be a thinning at the hairline and top of the head. Alopecia universalis is the loss of all hair from the body while Alopecia areata is localised hair loss ie patches of baldness.
At Omniya Clinic, we offer Hair Restoration (or transplant) Surgery for both men and women as a full solution to hair loss. Additionally, microneedling is a minimally invasive solution which stimulates the hair follicles and encourage them to grow again. When used with platelet rich plasma (PRP) it can have impressive results. The plasma (the patient’s own blood) is injected into the scalp to improve the blood flow there. The microneedles create tiny ‘injuries’ which the newly-injected blood then flows to in order to repair them. It’s this that stimulates the regrowth of hair.
Other methods to deal with hair loss include nutritional therapy where missing vitamins from the diet are replaced and overall health improved.
