Classification of Male Pattern Hair loss

Currently in the United states there are approximately 50 million men and women that are affected by some type of hair loss. the most common form of hair loss in both is Hereditary Androgenic Alopecia. Genetic hair loss in male and female is characterized by progressive loss of hair from scalp and there is a certain pattern that develops over time. There are many ways to measure the pattern of genetic hair loss, however most doctors who specialize in hair restoration follow a standard classification when describing hair loss.

In 1941, a classification scale of male pattern hair loss was introduced by James Hamilton. he classified typical patterns of hair loss into eight major types using a series of drawings. Dr. Norwood later on refined this system in 1975, offering four additional variations. the most common and standard classification of male pattern hair loss used today is based on Norwood /Hamilton scale for hair loss. Following is the description used to classify genetic hair loss using Norwood scale.

1. Type 1 Displaying the normal mature hairline with minimal temporal recession.

2. Type 2 Shows mild temporal recession with thinning along the anterior margin of the forelock.

3. Type 3 Depicts deep frontal recession with few or no remaining hairs, which is the minimal amount of hair loss required for the definition of balding. Vertex shows hair loss confined to the vertex with deep frontal recession.

4. Type 4 Displays both frontal and temporal recession and frontal thinning together with little hair in the vertex. The bridge between the frontal area and the vertex is still retained.

5. Type 5 Depicts bigger areas of fronto-temporal and vertex alopecia than Typ35 and only a narrow and sparse bridge separating both areas.

6. Type 6 Shows loss of the bridge separating the frontal and vertex areas with lateral and posterior progression of alopecia.

7. Type 7 Represents the severest form of balding whereby the remaining horseshoe shaped band of hair in the lower scalp is narrow. The preauricular hairs have receded both posterior and inferiorly. The remaining hair band is frequently of lower density with evidence of some miniaturization. The nape of the neck is sparse and in some cases the inferior occipital border is raised significantly.

During the initial consultation with the Dr. Meshkin, he spends a considerable amount of time to educate the patient utilizing computer hair analysis to evaluate the classification and extent of hair loss, hair loss progression, hair characteristics, and the donor availability. If hair transplant is an option, he will provide an estimate of the number of grafts needed, recommend and explain the best technique of harvesting the grafts that best fits the patient's concerns and goals and the method used for the recipient area. Dr. Meshkin will provide all the information necessary for the patient to make an educated decision for the any surgical or medical hair treatment options available.

Hair Loss in Women and Treatment Options

posted Apr 10, 2017, 8:49 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Apr 10, 2017, 8:54 AM ]

Hair Loss in Women and Treatment Options

Hair loss has been an issue for men, but in recent years there has been an increase in women experiencing hair loss problems. In men, the most likely cause of hair loss is Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as genetic male pattern hair loss. Although Androgenetic alopecia is frequent cause of hair loss in women, there are many other causes that can contribute to female hair loss. In general, some researchers believe that although male and female pattern hair loss both may have genetic causes, different genes may be involved and therefore female hair loss does not follow the patterns characteristic of genetic hair loss in men.

Hair loss patterns in women are typically different from those in men. hair loss in women tends to be more diffuse than hair loss in men. The more characteristic female pattern is diffuse thinning over a considerable area of the scalp, or diffuse thinning in a Christmas tree pattern over the central scalp.

An advanced form of diffuse thinning is called diffuse unpatterned alopecia. In diffuse female pattern hair loss, some women can benefit from hair transplantation. The procedure has a high success rate in women and the great majority of clients are very happy with the results. However, not all women are candidates for hair transplantation and other options should be discussed and considered.

Women who are not good candidates for hair transplantation may consider a series of oral and topical medications. These medications may include Minoxidil, Spironolactone, Cyproterone Acetate, Cimetidine, Retinoic Acid, and Flutamide. In recent years PRP and ACell injections in the areas of thinning have become very popular and in some cases very helpful. Once the cause of hair loss in women is established, the proper medical treatment should be discussed.

In order to make an accurate assessment of the causes of hair loss in women, extensive lab work should be done and completed. These tests are ordered by Dr. Meshkin before committing to any treatment plan. Female patients should be evaluated and satisfied that all the relevant questions have been addressed regarding any procedures, likely outcomes and the cost for each treatment. Both patient and Dr. Meshkin should be confident that all other causes of hair loss is ruled out before committing to a hair transplantation. A comprehensive treatment option is usually considered when treating female pattern hair loss.

During the initial consultation with the specialist, Dr. Meshkin spends a considerable amount of time to educate the patient utilizing computer hair analysis to evaluate the extent of hair loss, hair loss progression, hair characteristics, and the donor availability. If hair transplant is an option, he will provide an estimate of the number of grafts needed, recommend and explain the best technique of harvesting the grafts that best fits the patient's concerns and goals and the method used for the recipient area. Dr. Meshkin will provide all the information necessary for the patient to make an educated decision for the any surgical or medical hair treatment options available.

Dr. Meshkin is honored to be recognized as a designated long standing member of ISHRS by his peers and also be certified diplomat by ABHRS for his knowledge and skill as a specialized hair restoration surgeon.

Hair loss related to testosterone therapy and supplemets

posted Apr 3, 2017, 11:14 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Apr 3, 2017, 11:22 AM ]

Hair loss related to testosterone therapy and supplemets

Currently in the United States more than 50 million men and women are affected by some type of hair loss. One of the most distressing forms of hair loss is Male Pattern hair loss which is genetically predetermined. In a genetically prone man, the presence of hormone Dihydrotestosterone(DHT) is necessary for hereditary male pattern baldness to occur. With the surge of using testosterone supplements in recent years, there has been concerns about increased hair loss related to testosterone.

Testosterone therapy helps alleviate low testosterone and hypogonadism. Although Terstosterone levels naturally decline as men age, supplementing the loss alleviates the natural effect of the aging process. Even though testosterone may help aging, there seems to be evidence that there may be a link between testosterone use and increased Androgenic Alopecia or genetic related hair loss in men. Hair in different locations of the body react differently to Testosterone. It may improve facial hair but hair in the scalp starts to fall off.

For hair loss to happen in genetically prone individual naturally, testosterone is converted into DHT which binds to receptors in the scalp follicles and cause a shrinkage of the roots. Eventually over time, the hairs in the scalp become finer and thinner until the follicles become dormant and lead to hair loss. If your receptors are particularly sensitive due to genetic predisposition, they are more easily triggered by even small amounts of DHT, and hair loss occurs more easily as a result.

There are some medications such as Minoxidil and Steriod injection which can help with this type of hair loss. Finasteride is a medication that effects testosterone; it is designed to inhibit the conversion of Testosterone into DHT which may help with testosterone related hair loss. Another treatment option is PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is a concentration derived from clients' own blood, it has growth factors that stimulate hair growth when injected into the scalp. Once in the scalp, PRP growth factors begin to degrade quickly so any benefit to thinning hair will be short lived. All of these options should be discussed with a medical professional before usage.

Dr. Mike Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist based in Los Angeles and Orange County offers many advises to his clients to start hair loss prevention when they notice thinning at the initial stages. It is important to keep hair healthy by using the right medication and hair care products. Before starting on any Testosterone therapy supplements all the side effects are discussed and proper care is recommended.

Dr. Meshkin will use the latest techniques to find out the cause of your hair loss and give the best hair restoration recommendations customized to your needs and concerns.

Donor hair is transplanted as units of one to two hairs. Each graft is placed into an incision prepared for it by the doctor. Each incision is meticulously placed to match the orientation of the patient's own eyebrow hair. The use of single hair grafts permits meticulous adherence to the eyebrow contour for a natural appearance.As the transplanted hairs grow in their new position they may require occasional trimming as well as "training" of the growing hair with gel or wax.

Top Vitamins and Nutrients that are needed for healthy hair

posted Mar 3, 2017, 10:42 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Mar 3, 2017, 3:46 PM ]

Top Vitamins and Nutrients that are needed for healthy hair

There are many beauty products that claim to help hair loss. Products can be helpful to prevent hair breakage and split ends. They can also help with dry or oily scalps that also cause hair loss. However, it is also essential to help hair by feeding it the right nutrients from inside. It is important to have a healthy diet, but also it is essential to take the right vitamins and supplements to take care of your hair properly.

The vitamins that are essential for healthy hair include Vitamin C, B, A, D, Iron, Niacin, Biotin and Zinc. The following is a review of these vitamins and how they help with keeping your hair healthy.

Vitamin C : This vitamin helps body produce collagen which is important to keep the hair healthy. It is a dependable antioxidant that fights free radicals that are known to damage hair making them weak and break easily.

Iron : Iron deficiency can lead to hair loss by making the hair become thin, dry and dull. This is due to Iron helps with normal red blood cell formation and therefore transport of oxygen to the roots of the hair. If there is not enough blood flow the hair will not get proper oxygen and will begin to thin and eventually fall off.

Vitamin B : This Vitamin triggers energy and metabolism which would help the hair grow faster. In short Vitamin B helps to promote growth of every cell in our body. For hair, it accelerates hair growth.

Vitamin D : This vitamin is essential for hair looking healthy and lustrous. Any form of deficiency will make your hair look dull and thin.

Niacin and Biotin : Niacin nourishes the scalp while Biotin accelerates the rate of hair growth. Biotin is essential in production of fatty acids and amino acids. Low Biotin is likely caused by very low caloric diet that reduces the intake of many nutrients below recommended levels. Bad nutrition and low caloric diets can cause hair loss.

Vitamin A : This vitamin accelerates the production of sebum in the scalp. Sebum prevents your hair strands from drying out. Dry scalp can cause thinning of the hair shaft at the root and eventually lead to hair breakage and hair loss.

Vitamin Zinc : Zinc can be found in red meat and protein. Zinc deficiency is usually associated with low calorie diet which can lead to hair loss. Since zinc overdose can be associated with many adverse physical conditions, Zinc supplements should be taken under medical doctor supervision.

Your daily food intake should contain many of the vitamins that are mentioned above not only for healthy hair but for maintaining a healthy body.

Dr. Mike Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist based in Los Angeles and Orange County offers many advises to his clients to start hair loss prevention when they notice thinning at the initial stages. It is important to keep hair healthy by using the right hair care products. If hair loss is genetic, then hair transplant can be an option to restore the hair that is lost and medical treatment is used to prevent future hair loss and keep hair healthy.

Using Cooling Cap for hair loss prevention in cancer patients

posted Feb 24, 2017, 2:03 PM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Mar 3, 2017, 3:49 PM ]

Using Cooling Cap for hair loss prevention in cancer patients

Your hair needs as much attention as your body. There are many factors for maintaining a healthy scalp and hair. If you are in good general health, you will have healthy hair but if you are in poor physical and mental condition such as illness, stress, and malnutrition then your hair and scalp will show it. Treating the underlying medical condition makes the hair loss temporary, however in cases of cancer, chemotherapy medicines used for treatment can cause hair loss which could be very stressful.

The effect of chemo therapy can be devastating for many patients. the most damaging can be the effects of the drugs on hair follicles on the scalp. These medications could cause the hair to become weak and break, in addition it may also effect the hair follicles. In recent studies done in patient undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer, doctors found that clients using Cooling Cap lowers the chances of hair loss. These caps are used right after chemo is given and patients sits with the cap on the scalp for 15 minutes. These caps are tightly fitted strap on, helmet type hats filled with Gel coolant that is chilled before usage. These caps work by narrowing the blood vessels beneath the kin of the scalp, reducing the amount of chemotherapy medicine that reaches the hair follicles. With less chemotherapy medicine reaching the follicles, the hair may be less likely to fall out.

Dr. Mike Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist based in Los Angeles and Orange County offers many advises to his clients to start hair loss prevention when they notice thinning at the initial stages. It is important to keep hair healthy by using the right hair care products.

The effects of Seasonal temperatures on hair loss

posted Feb 6, 2017, 2:27 PM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Mar 3, 2017, 3:51 PM ]

The effects of Seasonal temperatures on hair loss

Throughout our life span, we lose hair everyday as follicles go through their normal cycle of growth. The average number of scalp hairs lost daily from the head due to normal catagen activity is up to 100 strands. When substantially more than 100 hairs are lost per day, one might be concerned as to the cause of the hair loss and if this is an indication of abnormal hair loss.

There are many causes of hair loss and the most common is genetic. However to make sure the abnormal hair loss is not genetic or temporary one must rule out all other causes. One of the concerns is unusual amount of hair loss in cold weather. Despite some myth that cold temperature may cause hair loss, a drop in temperatures does not mean an increase in hair loss. If anything studies show, cooler temperatures might increase the number of hairs a person has. A study from the University Hospital of Zurich backs up the fact that winter doesn’t lead to hair loss. Conducted over the course of six years, the study found that people tend to lose the least amount of hair during the chilly months of the year.

Usually, seasonal shedding is a temporary thing and the lost hair may return. The belief is that more hair than usual is being shed to make way for a somewhat thicker head of hair in the winter. Even if the hair doesn’t grow back thicker, losing up to a 100 hairs a day for a period of time is still well within the normal range for hair loss. If you think you are losing more than 100 strands of hair daily or start to see patches of baldness, it is best to get evaluated by a hair loss specialist to so more testing and get the proper treatment. During certain months of the year when the shedding occurs, some are under the impression that hats can prevent thehair loss. Unfortunately, if the shedding is seasonal hats will not have an effect to either cause the hair loss or prevent the hair loss from happening. To make sure that hats don't cause pulling of the hair and cause traction hair loss, make sure you choose a hat that is not too tight.

You may notice that cold temperature makes your hair dry and brittle. Keep your hair soft and strong in the winter by giving it a bit more conditioning, stay away from hot hair dryer and let it air dry or use a cooler setting. You may want to swap the shampoo you use in the winter for one that is more moisturizing and nourishing. If dandruff is an issue in cooler weather, look for a shampoo with a dandruff-fighting ingredient. You might want to cut back on the number of times you shampoo your hair in the winter, if you find that it’s becoming very dry.

Dr. Mike Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist based in Los Angeles and Orange County has been at the forefront of hair loss research on scalp conditions and their affect on hair follicles. He can made an evaluation using devises that help determine the cause of hair loss and predict the future progression. Once the cause of hair loss is established the proper treatment options are recommended to reverse or slow down future hair loss. He gives many advises to his clients to start hair loss prevention when they notice thinning at the initial stages. If hair loss is genetic, then hair transplant can be an option to restore the hair that is lost and medical treatment is used to prevent future hair loss and keep hair healthy.

Maintaining a healthy hair by using the proper hair care products

posted Jan 6, 2017, 11:19 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Mar 3, 2017, 3:53 PM ]

Maintaining a healthy hair by using the proper hair care products

Your hair needs as much attention as your body. there are many factors for maintaining a healthy scalp and hair. If you are in good general health, you will have healthy hair. However, if you are in poor physical and mental condition, then your hair and scalp will show it. Treating the underlying medical condition with proper relaxation, good nutrition and proper hair care products are the key factors for maintaining a healthy scalp and hair.

Hair's natural shine comes from sebum, and oil produced by the sebaceous glands. Sebum protects the hair shaft, but too much sebum production will make the hair oily and too little will make the hair dry. Using the right products that suits your hair type is a essential to maintain a healthy scalp and healthy hair.

It is important to use the proper hair product for washing and conditioning your hair. Using a high quality shampoo for cleaning that suits your help type is an important key factor. The right way of cleaning is to use warm water rather than hot and rob very gently with your fingers for 2-3 minutes and then rinse for 4-5 minutes. Using too much shampoo or too hot water will damage the hair shaft and cause the hair to break. Using a conditioner is also essential for healthy hair. The conditioner should remain on the scalp for 2-3 minutes and then washed off.

Post op Care After Hair Transplant Procedure

posted Dec 16, 2016, 8:34 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Mar 3, 2017, 3:55 PM ]

Post op Care After Hair Transplant Procedure

Once hair transplant procedure is completed there are some precautions that need to be taken by the patient to ensure that the results are optimal. Usually each clinic has a routine that makes the post op care easy for their clients. This routine needs to be followed to make sure that the grafts are healed properly.

After the hair transplant, the patient should be careful for the first week when cleaning the scalp as the grafts are still not set in and may come out. There are special shampoos that help with the healing process. The transplanted areas need to be shampooed gently for the first five to seven days. Once the grafts are more settled, patient can rub the areas. A follow up care with the hair transplant surgeon can ensure that the cleaning is done properly and it is healing well. Once the recipient area is healed then the growing process will begin. It is important to follow the instructions that are given to the patient to make sure that the healing process goes smoothly and also no problems arise. Usually after month from the procedure, once every thing is healed the patient can return to all normal activity and cleaning routine.

The process of hair growth of the transplanted hair varies from one person to another. But usually each hair goes through its intrinsic cycle of growth. Depending on where in the cycle of growth the hair is, then it will gradually start to grow in. Once the hair is transplanted, the follicles will remain under the scalp, however the hair shaft will usually detach from the hair follicle and shed with the scabs. Within one month after hair restoration surgery much of the hair is shed. In about three months, the hair begins to grow and continues to grow at a normal rate. In most cases it may take up to 18 months for all the transplanted hair to grow in. About six months after hair transplant session, the transplanted hairs begin to take on a normal appearance and will continue to grow for a lifetime. In rare cases, the hair may take up to two years to grow, but this delay is not common and is not well understand. The donor site from which the hair was taken shrinks to a small unnoticeable incision site that is usually almost not detectable. During this process, it is imperative that the hair transplant surgeon is available to answer any questions or concerns that may arise.

Dr. Mike Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist with offices in Los Angeles and Orange County, Beverly Hills, Irvine and San Diego offers many advises to his clients for hair restoration surgery using the best hair transplant techniques.
