What Is Hair Thinning?

Hair thinning, a prevalent yet often distressing predicament, occurs when an individual experiences a significant reduction in the overall density of his or her hair. This phenomenon can be attributed to various factors, including genetic predisposition, hormonal fluctuations, certain medical conditions, and age-related decline.

Contrary to popular belief, hair thinning is not exclusive to men; many women also grapple with this challenge, particularly following childbirth or during menopause. Detectable as a widening of the parting or a receding hairline, hair thinning might give rise to feelings of self-consciousness or insecurity. Consequently, a thorough understanding of the contributing factors and available treatments is essential in addressing this issue effectively and maintaining optimal hair health.

Man having microneedling on scalp for thinning hair

How does this work?

Microneedling for hair thinning treatment revolves around promoting hair growth via skin regeneration. 

The tiny needles puncture the scalp during microneedling, creating micro-injuries that trigger the body’s natural repair response. This response increases blood supply to the treated area and enhances the delivery of essential nutrients, oxygen, and growth factors. 

These growth factors–particularly vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), and epidermal growth factor (EGF)–are crucial players in hair follicle development and growth cycle. Consequently, microneedling stimulates the growth of new hair follicles and rejuvenates existing follicles, improving overall hair density and thickness.

Why choose skin NV

Professional skin care solutions from a qualified doctor.

Step-by-step procedure

1.

Prior To The Treatment

It is always advised to seek a specialist opinion as soon as you notice symptoms of hair fall, hair thinning or excess scalp exposure. The extent of the concern will be assessed during the consultation, by Dr Verma who will determine the causative factors and propose a home and in-clinic holistic approach to halt hair loss and encourage healthy hair growth.

2.

During The Treatment

During the procedure, we will commence by cleansing your scalp skin thoroughly, promoting a hygienic environment. To ensure your comfort throughout the process, a topical anaesthetic will be gently applied. Our specialised device will then be utilised to stimulate inactive hair follicles, effectively encouraging the growth of healthy hair. An additional benefit of this treatment involves the creation of micro-channels that extend to the depth of the hair follicles. These micro-channels facilitate the delivery of essential growth factors and nutrients, thereby optimizing the growth of strong and vibrant hair. Rest assured, our approach aims to provide you with a calming experience while promoting the desired outcome of improved hair health.

3.

What To Expect

Following the treatment, it is normal to experience mild redness and tenderness in the treated area. However, rest assured that these temporary effects typically subside within 24 hours, allowing you to resume your normal activities comfortably. While undergoing the treatment, you may begin to notice some initial hair growth. As these tiny hairs continue to develop, you will observe a more noticeable and enhanced hair density over time. To further optimise the outcome of the treatment, it is recommended to follow the personalised homecare regimen as advised by Dr Verma, ensuring long-term success and satisfaction with your results.

4.

Aftercare

To optimise the healing process and ensure the best possible outcome, it is strongly recommended that you refrain from touching the treated area for a period of 24 to 48 hours following the procedure. This precautionary measure minimises the risk of infection or disrupting the delicate healing process. Additionally, adopting a gentle hair care regime during this time is crucial. When washing your hair, gently massage the products onto your scalp using your fingertips. Should you have any concerns or questions regarding your aftercare routine, do not hesitate to reach out to our clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to prevent further hair thinning with a treatment?

Advancements in the hair care industry have led to the development of various treatments designed to combat hair thinning, and some of these innovative solutions are proving to be effective.

As each individual's hair type and situation differs, it is essential to consult a dermatologist or hair care expert for the best course of action. Identifying the underlying causes of hair thinning, ranging from hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiencies to genetics, is a critical first step.

Addressing these root issues significantly increases the chances of successfully preventing further hair loss. Regularly adopting proper hair care practices and the right treatment plans can help improve hair quality and, in many cases, slow down or prevent further thinning.

How early should one start treating a case of hair thinning or other forms of alopecia?

It is crucial to address hair thinning or other forms of alopecia as early as possible to ensure the most effective treatment and prevent further hair loss. Initiating treatment promptly can significantly impact the success of different solutions, ranging from topical medications to surgical procedures.

However, determining the ideal timeframe to commence treatment can be challenging, as hair loss progression varies for individuals. The key is to monitor changes in hair density and consult a doctor when noticing any significant thinning or balding patterns.

 

These qualified professionals can assess the severity and cause of hair loss, guiding individuals towards suitable treatment plans that cater to their unique needs. By taking proactive steps and seeking professional advice, individuals can enhance their chances of managing and mitigating the impacts of alopecia.

Is it possible to regrow lost hair due to thinning?

Thinning hair is a common issue that millions of people face daily, leaving many to wonder if it's possible to regrow lost hair. The good news is that, in many cases, hair loss due to thinning can be reversible. The first step is identifying the root cause, ranging from stress and hormonal imbalances to poor nutrition or an underlying medical condition.

Once the source of the problem is pinpointed, various treatments can be explored to promote hair regrowth. These options may include topical treatments or more advanced therapies, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, low-level laser therapy (LLLT), and hair restoration surgery.

Combining these treatments, a healthy lifestyle, and a balanced diet can often lead to significant improvements in hair thickness and growth, giving people confidence in their appearance again.
