Androgenic alopecia, or male pattern baldness is a condition that scars a lot of men around the world today. More than 50 percent of men above the age of 50 are affected by alopecia.
Male pattern of baldness is otherwise called as Androgenic Alopecia. The hair loss happens in a particular pattern. The hairline along the frontal region and temples recede back, the hair on the top of the head starts thinning, leading to, complete loss of the crown hair. But the hairs on the sides of the head and the back of the head are spared.The male hormone DHT (di-hydroxytestosterone) is important for the normal male sexual development. The hair follicles in the temples and the crown have receptors, for DHT. In some cases, these receptors become active and attract the hormones towards it.The DHT effect on the hair follicles results in their shrinkage. This shortens the lifespan of the follicles and prevents them from producing hair normally, thus causing a premature aging of the hair strands. Hence, the hair loss which results affects the temples and the crown areas more prominently.
The hairline gradually recedes and resembles the shape of an ‘M’. Slowly and steadily, the hair starts becoming thinner and finer, and then forms the shape of a ‘U’ around the sides of the head.
Alopecia is related to genes and male sex hormones. Baldness occurs when the hair follicles start shrinking, resulting in finer, shorter hair. Eventually, the follicles close and hair growth stops.
Homeopathic remedies are selected and customized for each patient. It effectively treats the primary cause of hairloss. At Amrita, we have several techniques to prevent hairfall, as well as grow new hair. These include the Grow Hair Technique, Hair Revival Therapy (exclusive to us), STM therapy, Stem Cell Therapy and PRP Treatment. Grow Hair and Hair Revival therapies are essentially the same where a high protein serum is applied onto the scalp every week, and within 10 weeks, the patient notices a significant improvement in the hair texture and volume. This is a very effective and fast method, where the patient can start seeing results within 2 and a half months. STM therapy is a technique where the blocked hair follicles are opened through a derma roller, and then the serum is applied and the same procedure is followed. Stem cell therapy uses plant stem cells, which is why the success rate is only 56%. It is generally not a preferred technique, unless the patient’s medical history calls for it. PRP is a technique where the blood of the patient is taken, and centrifuged in a machine. The platelets with growth factors are then taken and applied on the scalp, and a roller is used to let the serum enter into the scalp. We follow a non-injectable technique. The patient notices changes in 4-5 weeks. As a last resort, we have also tied up with other clinics to provide for hair transplantation.
The skin has become sensitive to the hormones and the sensitivity has to be reduced. This is only possible by making the skin healthier with internal medicines. Homeopathy is a safe method of treatment.
