Hair loss

is a problem that affects up to 60-80% of people at some point in their lives. In order to treat hair loss effectively, the cause of hair loss must first be diagnosed. For example scalp diseases and many systemic conditions, of which hair loss can be one of the first symptoms.

Recently, a very common cause of hair loss has been autoimmune diseases, mainly Hashimoto’s disease. The autoimmune disorder may in this case involve other organs and tissues, including the scalp. Often, hair loss is exacerbated during a period of rising levels of antithyroid antibodies. In many cases, normalization of thyroid hormones is a prerequisite for controlling hair loss, unfortunately often not sufficient. Patient experience shows that alopecia associated with Hashimoto’s disease responds well to mesotherapy treatment of the scalp (the most important factors here are the composition of the preparation, the appropriate treatment plan and technique, as well as diagnosis and compensation of coexisting deficiencies).

It is often the case that several overlapping factors are the cause of hair loss; regardless, the most important thing is appropriate and prompt treatment.

The most common types of alopecia are:

  • androgenetic alopecia

the most common type of hair loss in women and men. It is rarely associated with an excess of androgens and most often with hypersensitivity of the hair follicles to testosterone derivatives (usually passed on genetically). Note that in women it requires additional diagnosis to exclude diseases leading to androgen excess or other endocrine disorders. Untreated or poorly treated androgenetic alopecia leads to scarring of the hair follicles and becomes irreversible. The key factor for success is to start treatment as early as possible (as long as thinning hair growth is observed in the area, there is a good chance of stopping hair loss and stimulating hair growth).

  • alopecia areata

most frequently occurring at a young age, it usually starts with a sudden locally limited loss of hair. The main causes of alopecia are autoimmune processes, inflammatory processes and hypersensitivity of the hair follicles. Spontaneous remissions and relapses are common.

  • anagen alopecia

occurring suddenly in response to an agent that damages the hair follicles (chemotherapy, poisoning, irradiation). It disappears when the causative agent is withdrawn.

  • telogenetic alopecia

Generalised (diffuse) hair loss with a latency period occurring after the damaging factor (stress, surgery, childbirth, severe illness, COVID-19 infection). Quite often, unfortunately, hair regrowth occurs at an unsatisfactory rate – the inclusion of appropriate treatment and the supply of hair-building ingredients are of great importance.

  • drug-induced alopecia

may arise in the anagen, telogen or androgen mechanism. An appropriate medical history is crucial (hormonal drugs, retinoids, anticoagulants, some antihypertensive and cardiovascular drugs) and the inclusion of topical treatment when necessary.

  • scarring alopecia

– a rare, irreversible cause of alopecia, can be diagnosed by dermatoscopic examination.

  • alopecia associated with scalp diseases

(dandruff, seborrhoeic dermatitis) – often requires simultaneous treatment of the scalp and treatment of hair loss

Most types of alopecia are reversible and respond well to the latest formulations administered by mesotherapy. However, the key factor determining the success and cost of treatment is time – treatment initiated early can quickly control hair loss and prevent significant hair thinning and irreversible changes to the hair follicles.
