Hair Loss

Hair loss at any age can be distressing for both men and women. There are treatments available that can help reduce hair loss in many people. Women may notice hair thinning at their parting or crown at or after the menopause.
It is important to seek help early because treatments are aimed at maintaining the hair that you have.

Minoxidil is an OTC treatment that can be used in men and women.

Finasteride is a once a day prescription medication mainly used in male pattern baldness. It reduces the conversion of Testosterone to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). A third of patients maintain the hair that they have on this drug so starting in the early stages of hair loss is vital.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been shown to be very effective in maintaining and strengthening hair growth in both women and men. It is particularly effective in FEMALE PATTERN hair loss. It can also increase growth in eye brows and lashes.
PRP is frequently used before hair transplants in the donor area and is recommended post treatment to maintain a healthy head of hair.

MESOTHERAPY Used either alone or in combination with PRP can also be effective in promoting hair growth. It involves hundreds of tiny injections of combinations of vitamins and other enhancing products that promote hair growth.

Hair loss due to Alopecia Areata, Lichen Planus, Lupus and other skin conditions should be seen as soon as possible by a dermatologist who specialises in these conditions.
