Weather Changes and hair loss

Weather Changes and hair loss

There are many causes of hair loss and the most common is genetic. However there are other less common causes of hair loss one of which is weather changes. In general there are some hair loss related to cold or warm weather that is associated with seasonal changes. In addition to normal daily hair loss of 50 to 100 strands per day, it is natural and healthy to lose more hair in warm weather or to experience more hair growth during the winter. However, weather changes occasionally contribute to unusual excessive hair loss.

During fall and winter seasons with cold, dry weather hair loss could worsen due to dietary changes, stress, or other factors. Cold air combined with the drying effects of central heat can result in brittle ends and fragile strands that break easily. If your hair is already damaged, the drying effect will further cause it to fall off. In addition, the cold weather can affect the overall health of your scalp and make the hair more brittle. To make the hair less brittle, hair masks and natural hair treatments could help.

As oppose to cold weather hair loss, losing hair during warm weather is usually normal. In the same way that many animals shed, it is normal for the human body to regulate temperature with the loss of unneeded extra hair. For some people though, the heat and intense summer sun can cause additional dryness on the scalp just like in the winter time. In both cold and warm conditions, if the scalp or the hair shaft is dry, the hair becomes brittle and start to fall off.

How Long does coronavirus stay on the hair and should we be concerned?

How Long does coronavirus stay on the hair and should we be concerned?

There are many clients who wonder about their hair and Coronavirus. Although there is no particular studies done to find the length of time the corona virus stays on the hair or if it affects hair loss at all, many are asking if they should be concerned about transmission of the virus from the hair to the respiratory tract.

There are studies done that show the new coronavirus may stay on cloth and on stainless steel and plastic for up to four days. The question becomes with hair having different physical structure, does it stay on the hair long enough for us to be concerned about transmission.

At this point there are no specific studies that show any connection between COVID19 and the human hair or even beard hair. There is the possibility that the virus could remain alive on your hair for a few hours or even a few days and could be transmitted by touching. If that is the case, the question becomes if the hair should be washed more often to reduce the possibility of transmission. In general in a healthy environment, washing your hair too often is not recommended since you lose the natural oil of the scalp and may cause hair breakage and hair loss. However, since there are no particular studies done with this new virus a common sense approach can be more practical.

The recommended approach is to follow all the safety guidelines by the CDC and stay aware of the environment. If a person is in a crowded area and feels more exposed, it is safe to wash hair more often. If someone is exposed to sneezing, or coughing directly into their hair, and if one strokes their hair with his or her contaminated hands or be in direct contact with someone who may have the virus, it is a very good idea to wash your hair as well as other parts of the body. In general one should try to avoid touching their face and hair with their hands, they should follow the safety guidelines, maintain the safe distance from others and wash their hair as needed, to reduce the chances of transmission.

Computer use and hair loss

Computer use and hair loss

Although there is no scientific proof of a cause-and-effect relationship between computer use and hair loss, medical experts have noticed a higher percentage of hair loss amongst IT employees with long periods of time exposed to electromagnetic radiation in electric appliances, such as the computer. Some experts suggest that exposure to radiation from a computer can cause hair loss amongst other things.

We’re surrounded by radiation—sunlight, electric light, heat, radio waves, power lines, and other forms of energy–not just from our medical and dental X-rays. Radiation comes from natural radioactivity in the environment, from minerals and the earth. Most of us are exposed to two kinds of radiation: ionizing (creates free radicals that can damage tissue) and electromagnetic. The former, which removes electrons from atoms, is more dangerous.

In recent years due to increased in exposure to radiation from increased computer use, many scientists have linked exposure to increased hair loss, headache, insomnia, declining memory, irregular menstruation, miscarriage, low sperm viability, fetal anomalies, and some cancers. Although the most common cause of hair loss is genetic, Some scientists suggest exposure to radiation and stress may instigate or facilitate the process of hair loss. To reduce chances of symptoms, a simple change in everyday routines to reduce the exposure is helpful.

At this time of work from home environment, many clients have complained about increased hair loss. One could suggest that stress and long work days in front of the computer can contribute to their hair loss problem. The EPA states that if one is concerned about symptoms such as hair loss then changing habits to limit exposure, length of time, and distance from a screen can help with reducing symptoms. Although we cannot escape radiation completely, making A choice to change habits and reduce computer use or taking frequent breaks could reduce possible symptoms. Even though at this time there is no solid scientific evidence between computer use and hair loss, one can reduce any possibilities by simply changing daily routines and daily use of computers.

Female hair loss best treatments at initial stages

For the most part women are unaware that they are losing hair every day. If hair is healthy and heredity is on their side then the hairs that fall off will usually be replaced by new hair and hair loss will not be noticeable. Many women experience hair breakage that should be distinguished from hair loss. If it is hair breakage the hair thinning may be temporary and may grow back. It is important to note that temporary hair loss may be due to number of reasons. should it persist, and appear to be permanent, it is important to consult a hair restoration specialist.

The first warning signs of hair loss or baldness appear when extreme amounts of hair fall out when hair is brushed or under the shower. A more advanced sign of creeping hair loss is definite thinning in the mid scalp or frontal hair line. Androgenic Alopecia is a form of female pattern hair loss that is common among women with family history of hair loss. The most common cause of hair loss in women is genetic female pattern hair loss. Genetic hair loss is inherited from either side of the family and begins to develop after puberty.

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. Women who are not good candidates for hair transplantation may consider a series of oral vitamins, Minoxidil solution, PRP and ACell to treat their hair loss. However before deciding on any hair loss treatment, consultation with a hair loss specialist should be considered to plan out the best treatment options.

At what age and what stage of hair loss is hair transplant a viable option

posted May 27, 2020, 3:11 PM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated May 27, 2020, 3:41 PM ]

At what age and what stage of hair loss is hair transplant a viable option

Currently in the USA, approximately 50 million men and women are affected by some type of hair loss. One of the most distressing forms of hair loss is Hereditary Androgenic Alopecia, also known as male pattern hair loss (MPHL). The symptoms of this genetically predetermined disorder include physical changes in the hair, including loss of normal vigor and elasticity. Eventually, the hair can become thin and brittle and begin to fall out. In a genetically prone man, the presence of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is necessary for this problem to occur. As hair loss progress, hair transplant may become an viable option as treatment option. There are many factors that considered before jumping from medical hair treatment to hair transplantation.

Some of the less common causes of hair loss that are reversible with medical hair treatment, including: thyroid disease, iron deficiency, high fever, surgery or general anesthesia, “crash diets,” stress and certain medications. There are also certain dermatologic scalp disorders that can result in temporary or permanent hair loss, such as lupus, lichen planopilaris, and alopecia areata.

In general patients younger than 23 years old suffering from hair loss, hair transplantation is not an option. Most hair transplant specialist prefer to wait until a more definite diagnosis is established. Some doctors recommend doing miniturization studies to establish the cause of hair loss as MPHL, however these studies are not definite. Since in some cases hair loss is not permanent, one needs to be patient and not jump into conclusion. At this point, it is to patients' advantage to visit a hair restoration specialist to begin some sort of preventive medical regiment. Sometimes, as a result of using theses regiments you can decrease degree of future hair loss and patients may even get some hair back. In a few years, if hair loss is genetic and patient continues to lose hair and a more definite diagnosis is established, hair transplantation is a treatment option. There are some cases where the client is young but have genetically higher forehead. In these cases hair restoration using hair transplant to lower the hairline is a viable option even at a young age.

Best Hair restoration Treatments for Hair Loss Orange County

Some consider the hair to be the most aesthetic part of the face and as such hair loss can be psychologically very devastating. A primary reason for seeking hair restoration is to restore your appearance to the condition before hair loss. Before making a decision for hair restoration options, it is very important to get evaluated by a qualified hair restoration specialist to find the most comprehensive approach to address your hair loss concerns. If hair loss is in the beginning stage or in a more advanced stage, hair restoration specialist can recommend surgical or non surgical or a combination of treatment options.

During the initial consultation, the physician should spend a considerable amount of time to educate the patient utilizing computerized hair analysis to evaluate extent of hair loss, hair characteristics, hair density and the cause of hair loss. Once the cause of hair loss is determined, the doctor can give recommendations based on the patient's age, goal and expectation, patient's state of health, the degree of hair loss, donor size, donor density, and hair characteristics. If the client had previous surgery, it is imperative to examine the donor availability, and determine the progression of future hair loss to give a recommendation. Once the evaluation is done, the hair transplant specialist should give all the necessary information and educate the patient about both surgical and medical treatment options that may be beneficial to the client.

Since hair loss tends to be both gradual and progressive, it is often wise to combine a surgical and medical treatment regiment routine to get the most optimal result. Medical hair treatments such as finasteride and minoxidil are usually recommended to help preserve thinning hair. Hair transplants can be used to fill in the frontal hairline and thicken the mid scalp and the crown areas while medical treatments can be used to maintain the native hair and possibly enhance the long term results of hair restoration surgery. In most cases a combination of hair transplant surgery and non surgical hair restoration treatment is necessary. It is also important to note that genetic hair loss is progressive, if a patient chooses to not have any non surgical hair treatment and hair loss continues, multiple procedures may be necessary to maintain the desired density.

Hair transplant Cost Newport Beach

posted Feb 20, 2020, 1:27 PM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Feb 20, 2020, 2:32 PM ]

Hair transplant Cost Newport Beach

In the recent years hair restoration surgery has become very popular amongst both men and women. Although many desire to do the surgery, they are reluctant to do so due to the high cost of any cosmetic procedure. Many people even opt to travel to distant countries to get cheaper prices and endure the hassle of travelling and even be in unsafe areas. Some people even have the surgery performed by non medical doctors or even untrained medical assistants thinking they may save money. While the cost may be the driving factor in your decision, whatever you pay for a bad hair transplant is too much.

In order to find out the exact cost for your hair transplant surgery, the first step is to do a hair restoration consultation with a qualified hair restoration specialist. It is always a good idea to do research and find a few doctors that specialize in the hair restoration only and go in for a consultation. You may need to ask questions about their qualifications to see if they are licensed medical doctor. Once you see a few qualified doctors, you can get a feel of the hair loss options that are available to you and also determine which options best fits your needs and concerns.

The type of harvesting, the donor availability and the degree of hair loss help establish the surgery session size and the actual price range. The hair loss specialist should determine the degree of your hair loss and also examine your donor hair to find the amount of quality donor hair that can be safely harvested. There are two different harvesting method from the donor zone of the scalp area. There is the strip method or the FUT and the punch method or the FUE. The type of harvesting method should be customized to your needs and concerns and all the pros and cons for each method should be discussed during the consultation. Most hair restoration practices charge an average price per graft for the harvested donor hair per session. That average price per graft is impacted by the type of procedure you choose to have, whether it is FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) Strip, or FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). All these factors are combined to determine the actual cost of surgical hair restoration. Since hair loss is progressive you may need additional procedures in the future. The cost for the second procedure is independent from the prior surgery and is based on the number of grafts and the technique you choose to do.

Hair transplant post op care and maintenance

posted Feb 6, 2020, 2:17 PM by Michael Meshkin   [ updated Feb 6, 2020, 2:35 PM ]

Hair transplant post op care and maintenance

Hair transplant is a very safe and relatively minor surgical procedure. The surgical procedure is very easy and it is done in an office setting with local anesthesia. The actual procedure may take a few hours and the discomfort during and after the procedure is very minimal. Most patients are prescribed mild analgesic to help cope with discomfort for the first couple of days. Very light bandage is put on the grafted area for the first night which can be removed easily the next day. Dr. Meshkin always call his clients the first night to review the after care instructions and recommends that his patients rest for the first night after the procedure.

There is a post op regiment for shampooing which is reviewed and needs to be followed for the first week after the procedure. The next day the light bandage can be removed and a post op care regiment for shampooing and cleaning begins. Small crusts may form on each of the grafts, and these are usually camouflaged by wearing a hat or using any existing hair that can be combed over the recipient areas. These scabs will start to fall off by 5-10 days after the surgery. The transplanted hair growing from the scalp may initially start to grow, but will shed eventually. Usually within approximately one month, much of the transplanted hair is shed. However the roots remain and will be in dormant stage for a few weeks before new hair start to grow back in. In about three months, the hair begins to grow and continues to grow at a normal rate. About six months after a hair transplant session, the transplanted hairs begin to take on normal appearance and will continue to grow for a lifetime.

Patients are instructed to stay away from strenuous activity for the first week after the procedure and gradually start their normal activity. Usually the patient can return to work even as early as the next day. The patient is instructed to take some post op medications for the first few days and can start to ween off after a couple of days. Patient can return to swimming, normal exercise routine, and get a hair cut after three weeks. Dr. Meshkin will stay in contact and follows up with his clients closely for the first months to make sure all the necessary post op care is followed, monitor the hair growth and answer any questions that may arise.

1. Finasteride (Propecia™) is an oral medication available by prescription only, having been introduced to the market more than a decade ago. Finasteride is approved only for use by men. Through scientific studies, it has been shown to re-grow hair in some men and stop hair loss in an even higher percentage. Finasteride works by decreasing the formation of DHT, a hormone responsible in large part for male pattern hair loss, while not reducing testosterone, the overall male hormone responsible for masculinity. Therefore, any side effects that may involve male sexual function are mild and occur in less than 2% of all patients. Its use is suggested by hair restoration surgeons as an effective medication to slow down or reverse male pattern hair loss in many men. It is often used as a complimentary treatment for hair transplant patients.

2. Topical Minoxidil (Rogaine™) has been around for over 15 years and is helpful in slowing down hair loss, but less effective in helping new hair to grow. A higher concentration (5% solution) of minoxidil is now available for men and has been shown to be more effective than the 2% solution. 5% minoxidil solution is generally not recommended for use by women because it may stimulate the growth of facial hair, and also because at least one study suggests that it is not more effective than the 2% in females. There is a compound solution that is formulated by Dr. Meshkin that includes Minoxidil at higher concentration and other ingredients that helps and is effective for both men and women.

Both finasteride and minoxidil must be used on a continual basis in order to sustain results. If discontinued, the process of balding resumes. These medications may not work for everyone but they have a proven track record that shows some benefit to many people. In addition, combination treatment with minoxidil solution and finasteride may provide added benefit for men with androgenetic alopecia.

3. Other Topical Medications are available such as Tretinoin, Diazoxide, Cyotcol, Progesterone, and topical Estrogen. These medications have been used in the past for the treatment of hair loss.

4. There is also different shampoos, conditioner and vitamins such as Zinc, Biotin, B complex E, C and Iron that may help keep the overall condition of the hair healthy.

5. Low Level Laser Treatment (LLLT) is available for treating hair loss. To see any results, it must be used up to three times a week, each time for 20 minutes for about 6-12 months. These are more effective if used in conjunction with Minoxidil or Propecia™ and are considered to be safe. However, the long term effectiveness and its safety need to be further investigated before the use of the device is substantiated.

6. PRP therapy has gained popularity as a non surgical treatment option for men and women in the initial stages of hair loss. PRP is a concentration derived from clients' own blood, It has growth factors that stimulate hair growth when injected into the scalp.
