Hair loss

hairlossThe problem of hair loss (alopecia) affects everyone to at least some degree. It can be total, diffuse (drastic thinning of the hair) or localized (loss of hair in smaller, confined patches).

If the amount of hair loss you are experiencing noticeably increases and creates cause for concern, you should consult your doctor to determine the underlying issue.

Causes of hair loss:

  • Genetics
  • Ageing
  • Hormonal changes (birth, puberty, menopause, hormone treatments)
  • Physical, thermal, and chemical damage (tight hairstyles, chemical perms, drying, coloring)
  • Deficiency of vitamins or micronutrients
  • Seborrheic dermatitis or scalp dryness
  • Trauma or damage to the scalp
  • Autoimmune diseases, bacterial or fungal infections
  • Psychological, emotional, or physical stress
  • Diseases of the thyroid
  • Poor eating habits
  • Poor ecological environment
  • Antibiotics
  • Chemotherapy cancer treatment

Treatment of hair loss varies depending on its cause; the proper treatment course for you should be determined by your doctor.

It can incorporate long-term use of vitamins, sedatives (in cases of neurosis), and preparations that include iron, cobalt, copper, zinc, and calcium. Localized treatment includes head massages, methods to stimulate and tone the area, and machine methods:

  • Vacuum rolling massage
  • Mesotherapy
  • Endocrinological consultation
  • Homeomesotherapy
  • Laennec
