Trichotillomania has a high overlap with post traumatic stress disorder. The treatment of the illness is to treat the cause of stress and the trauma. Usually it depends on the patient's age and the severity of the problem. In younger patients the problem is managed very conservatively. it is possible that in time and with some limited therapy the child would outgrow the condition. The family and the patient need to be aware of the condition and behavior modification programs can be helpful. In adult patients when trichotillomania is diagnosed, it is often associated with mental disorders and long term psychotherapy is considered. In many cases with therapy to heal the underlying stress causing problem, the prognosis is good. But if patient is introduced to stress induced environment the condition can return.

Correlation of advanced hair loss and heart disease

Correlation of advanced hair loss and heart disease

Recent studies show that there is a correlation between hair loss and heart diseases. In fact most of the studies show that a more advanced male pattern hair loss in the vertex and the crown area could be a visible sign of heart disease. The biological link between hair loss and heart disease could involve elevated levels of male hormone testosterone which coverts to DHT that effects the hair follicles. Elevated male hormone levels can be linked to an increase risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, abnormal cholesterol level, all of which raise the risk of heart disease.

The most distressing cause of hair loss in male and female are genetically inherited. The symptoms of this genetically predetermined disorder include physical changes in the hair which eventually makes the hair to become thin and begin to fall out. In genetically prone men, the presence of hormone dihydrotestosterone or DHT is necessary for this problem to occur. The scalp has a higher density of male hormone receptors and therefore thinning and hair loss occurs usually in the fontal to the crown areas. Studies also show that high levels of hormones such as testosterone are associated with risk of hardening of arteries and blood clotting which are contributing factors or increased risks of heart disease. Researchers found that the men with more severe hair loss developed more heart disease than men with only mild or moderate hair loss. They suggested a link between the degree of hair loss in more advance classification and heart problems. They also suggested that a receding hairline in men had little relationship. They did not include any women in their study, however they suggest that if the hair loss in women is caused by increased by the level of testosterone, then they may also be at risk of heart disease.

Normally we have about 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair on the scalp, and the average life span of hair is about 2-7 years. It is normal to lose about 80-100 strands of hair each day and still not experience hair loss because of its cycle. Usually we lose more hair during the summer than we do during the winter time which could be for natural protection of the body against cold weather. Hair is the thickest around age 20 and it continues to become thinner by the age of 65-70. Hair loss is genetically predisposed and can be inherited from either or both parents. Hair follicles that are sensitive to DHT male hormone begin to shrink as men age and eventually will not grow. Hair loss in men averages 15% between ages of 18-29 and increases to approximately 50% by the age of 50. By age 40 the rate of hair loss decreases to 10% for each decade.

When experiencing hair loss, the most common cause is genetic, however other factors such as mechanical hair loss or systemic diseases could also be a factor. The breaking strength of hair is 160g, and it can be stretched as much as 30% when the hair is wet before breaking. The Average growth rate for hair is about 0.38 mm per day or 0.5 inches per month. Growth rate is increased during adolescence and slows down during older age, pregnancy, illness and cold weather. Living in cooler weather has been associated with blonder hair due to less melanin, while those in warmer temperatures are said to have darker and thicker hair. To determine if the hair loss is normal or as a result of other functions one need to see a doctor and do a hair test study to evaluate and predict future hair loss.

Temporary hair loss can lead into permanent hair loss if the behavior pattern continues.

DONOR HAIR OPTIONS FOR HAIR TRANSPLANT

posted Oct 30, 2017, 9:34 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Oct 30, 2017, 9:45 AM ]

DONOR HAIR OPTIONS FOR HAIR TRANSPLANT

With popularity of hair transplants, many wonder if they have enough donor hair available to use for a natural looking hair transplant. When choosing donor hair for transplant, it’s best to choose scalp hair. A better coverage in general is achieved with scalp hair so this should be the first line of treatment for hair loss. However when in some cases the hair in the donor area of the scalp is not sufficient or dense enough or has very sparse thin characteristics, the hair from other parts of the body can be considered. When not using scalp hair, the next best option is the Beard. In most cases the beard hair provides consistent results, in terms of yield and characteristics.

If one is considering body hair for scalp hair transplant, donor hair from the body can be separated into two categories: beard hair and the rest of the body. Beard hair is rarely in the resting phase whereas other parts of the body are usually in the telogen phase. Beard hairs usually grow as single hair units, but on rare occasions a multiple hair groups may be noted. Only those with a thick beard will have multiple two hair groups. Beard hairs have a rapid rate of growth, and they last for a longer duration than other body hairs. In general beard hair transplants are far more consistent and will produce a yield typically between 60% and 100%.

Other forms of body hair are usually shorter in length and grow at a slower rate than scalp hair, typically not much longer than 3 to 6 cm in length. The hairs are often curly, but not nearly as curly as most beard hairs. Some forms of body hair grow even shorter such as the hair on your arms, the hair on the tops of the toes and eyebrows. These body hairs are often finer in appearance, though sometimes they are just as coarse as head hair. Even when the source of body hair is coarse, the hair will not grow as coarse on top of the head. The hair may produce a cosmetically insignificant result as compared to head hair and beard hair.

In general, 1 out of 4 individuals who undergo a non-beard body hair transplant get a cosmetically improved result. Failures include yields of zero %, very fine hair and sparse growth. Even though beard hair transplants produce good cosmetic coverage, some patients do not like the coarse, curly nature of the hair. This contrast in appearance can be quite striking when the scalp hair is fine and straight and beard hair is coarse and curly. In addition there are no studies to support growth of hair and its permanency in long term.

Ideal candidates for body hair transplants include those whose body hair most closely resembles the other hair in the recipient area, and lack of sufficient sources of hair on the scalp. If one has sufficient scalp resources, it is best to use them first. Some patients prefer to use body hair over scalp hair. In these circumstances, a trial of body hair might be performed to evaluate the growth and appearance of the grafts.
