Could it be female pattern hair loss?

dermatologist in jankapuri, Hair Loss Treatment jankapuri

Female pattern hair loss(FPHL) is a progressive condition of hair loss. This means women tend to continue losing their hair. Women, however, do not lose all of their hair, as do some men. Instead, hair parting often gets wider. Hair near the temples may recede. Without treatment, some women may eventually develop widespread thinning.

Dermatologists can help women win the fight against hair loss?

For women, the first sign of hair loss that noticed is a widening of their hair part or ponytail becomes smaller. Dermatologists are the experts in diagnosing and treating hair loss. A dermatologist can confirm whether it’s FPHL or some other cause that is causing your hair loss. Treatment can prevent hair loss from worsening and also help some women regrow their hair.  Best results are obtained when treatment is started at the first sign of hair loss.

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata Treatment In West Delhi, Alopecia Areata Treatment In Janakpuri, Alopecia Areata Treatment Clinic In West Delhi

Alopecia areata(AA) is an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss in children, women, and men. Hair loss in AA occurs in small, round smooth patches that may go away on their own, or may last for many years. Some people with AA (about 5%) may lose all their scalp hair (alopecia totals) or all scalp and body hair (alopecia universalist). The self-immune system, for unknown reasons, attacks the hair root and causes hair loss.

Who gets Alopecia Areata?

AA occurs world-wide in both genders and in every ethnic group. Children and young adults are most frequently affected, but people of all ages are susceptible. One in five persons with AA has a positive family history.

What are the signs and symptoms of AA?

AA usually presents with one or more small, round, coin-size, bare patches. It most commonly involves the scalp, but can occur on any hair-bearing site including eyebrows, eyelashes, and beards. AA usually is asymptomatic, but some may notice minor discomfort or itching prior to developing a new patch.

What causes AA?

AA is not contagious. It is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s own immune system attacks the hair follicles. The exact cause is not known. A person’s particular genetic makeup combined with other factors may trigger AA.

What tests are done to confirm AA?

Your dermatologist may diagnose AA by clinical examination.

Is this a symptom of a serious disease?

AA is not a symptom of a serious disease and can occur in otherwise healthy individuals. People with AA may have a higher risk of asthma, atopic eczema, and nasal allergies, as well as other autoimmune diseases such as thyroid disease (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), and vitiligo.

Will the hair grow back?

The course of the disease varies from person to person. Some people lose a few patches of hair, the hairs regrow, and the condition never returns. Other people continue to lose and regrow hairs for many years. The potential for full recovery is always there, even in people who have lost all the hairs on their scalp and body (alopecia totals/universalis). Hairsmay regrow white or fine initially, but the original hair color and texture may return later.

What are the treatment options available?

There is no cure for AA. While available treatments promote hair growth, new patches of hair loss may continue to appear.

Corticosteroids- can be given as injection into the areas of hair loss, taken as pills, or rubbed into affected areas. Steroids that are rubbed into affected areas are less effective than injections. Oral Corticosteroids are not used routinely, but may be used in severe or non-responsive cases.

Topical minoxidil 5% solution— solution applied twice daily to the scalp, brow, and beard areas may promote hair growth in both adults and children with AA.

Combinationof treatments may add to the effectiveness.

Other Alternative approaches

Wigs, caps, hats, or scarves are important camouflage options. This may option for people with extensive scalp hair loss.

Does alopecia areata affect life?

Alopecia areata does not affect general health, and doesn’t interfere with your ability to achieve your life goals at school, in sports, in your career, and in raising a family.

The future

Immunomodulatory and other therapies are being explored and researchers continue to advance the treatment options for alopecia areata.

Botox Treatment

skin specialist in Dwarka

More and more people are turning to cosmetics to reflect the way they feel inside. BOTOX treatment is one such rejuvenation technique used to relax specific facial muscles that cause facial wrinkles.

How and why do wrinkles form?

Facial wrinkles form when we use our muscles to make facial expressions. The wrinkles formed during these facial movements are called dynamic wrinkles. For example, when we smile our eye wrinkles become prominent and when we frown, the vertical lines between our eyebrows become noticeable.

In youth, the skin springs back to its initial position after making a facial expression. As we age, dynamic wrinkles turn into static wrinkles, that are present even when the skin is at rest. This process occurs because natural substances in our skin such as collagen (natural protein in skin), elastin (protein that causes tissue to stretch) and Hyaluronic acid (gives skin volume) decrease as we age. Chronological ageing with environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking and stress all contribute in the creation of wrinkles and folds.

What is BOTOX treatment?

BOTOX is a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkles causing muscles, creating a rejuvenated appearance. The active ingredient in BOTOX is derived from a bacteria and is manufactured under sterile laboratory conditions.

How does BOTOX treatment work?

BOTOX relaxes specific facial muscles responsible for causing dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles formed during facial expression). Once the muscles are relaxed, you cannot contract them preventing undesirable facial expressions. Thus, the lines gradually smoothen out and new lines are prevented from forming.

Will I still be able to make facial expressions?

Although treatment results are noticeable, BOTOX does not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve had any work done.

What does BOTOX treatment involve?

BOTOX treatment is a non-surgical procedure whereby a small amount of BOTOX is administered into selected facial muscles by a trained dermatologist using a very fine needle. Generally, a BOTOX treatment takes around 10 minutes. Discomfort is typically minimal and brief, and an anesthetic is usually not required; the injection may sting for a few seconds. Normal activities can be resumed soon after the treatment.

The doses recommended for the treatment will vary depending on your individual indication and the severity of your lines. Your dermatologist knows the best dose for you and which muscles to inject to give you the best results.

How long does BOTOX treatment last?

The effects of treatment can last up to 4 months before lines slowly begin to return. After repeated treatments, the effect tends to last longer.

Does BOTOX treatment cause more wrinkles to form?

BOTOX relaxes the facial muscles that cause expression lines thus preventing the wrinkles from forming. If you choose not to repeat BOTOX treatments your muscles eventually return to their normal activity and your wrinkles will gradually revert to their pre-treatment levels.

How quickly can I see a difference?

Within 3 days of BOTOX treatment, you start noticing a softening in the appearance of your frown lines between your brows and it may take up to 7 days to see the full results. The treated area will continue to improve for up to a month.

Are there any side effects?

In the dosage used for improvement of facial lines, the side effects if any, are usually temporary and localized to the treatment area. Possible side effects include headache, pain, burning / stinging, swelling or redness at the injection site, localized muscle weakness including drooping eyelids / eyebrows, swollen eyelids, skin tightness, tingling sensations, itching / aching forehead, nausea and flu-like symptoms.
