The effects of Seasonal temperatures on hair loss

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 the hair 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

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.

If you have oily hair or live in a polluted area, you should wash your hair daily. However if you have dry hair or live in a clean environment, you may wash your hair every other day with a gentle shampoo followed by conditioner. Over shampooing will remove the natural oils, and make the hair flat and difficult to manage. To Keep the natural and moisture on the scalp make sure to air dry the hair after washing and leave the towel on for a few minutes to absorb the moisture. using the right brush and comb for your hair type is also essential. Use a type of brush that is easy for you to handle and get through the hair easily.

Finding the right hair care products is only one factor of proper hair care. If one suffers from genetic hair loss, hair care products can be used to minimize damage to the hair shafts and scalp but do not have any effect on the follicles. A more comprehensive medical hair loss regiment should include treatment for both the scalp, hair shaft and hair follicle.

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.

Post op Care After Hair Transplant Procedure

posted Dec 16, 2016, 8:34 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Jan 31, 2017, 11:12 AM by Peyman Kalhor ]

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. Dr. Meshkin is a very hands on hair restoration surgeon and he is available for his clients for before, during and after hair restoration surgery.

Gray Hair, causes and treatment options

posted Dec 5, 2016, 8:34 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Jan 31, 2017, 11:14 AM by Peyman Kalhor ]

Gray Hair, causes and treatment options

At some point in people's lives their hair turns gray, which could be normal or cause feeling of anxiousness or frustration if it is experienced at a young age. Many people with gray hair frequently ask if gray hair is normal or it could be prevented.

Normally hair gets its color from pigment called melanin that is produced by specialized cells called melanocytes in the hair follicle. What melanins are produced, and in what quantity is determined by genes inherited from one's parents. At some point in a person's life, the melanocytes may begin to produce less melanin, or stop producing melanin altogether. when melanin production slows or stops, hair begins to lose its color and the result is decreased pigmentation in gray hair or total absence of pigmentation in white hair.

Many people with graying hair wonder if there is any treatment to prevent the hair from turning gray. The answer is that there is no specific treatment available to prevent this from happening. However, it is believed that biotin and folic acid which are B complex vitamins may help in keeping the hair from turning gray.

The gray has has the same genetic disposition as other hairs in a person's body, which means that if it is predisposed to genetic androgenic alopecia, it could eventually be lost. When a person with graying hair or gray hair begins to experience hair loss due to androgenic alopecia, a condition commonly called male pattern or female pattern hair loss, many people wonder if it can be transplanted. The gray hair can be transplanted as safely and successfully as hair of any color. A misconception about gray hair is that when hair turns gray it is no longer healthy hair. If this was true then gray hair would not be suitable for hair transplantation. The rational for transplantation is to remove healthy hair follicles to an area of hair loss where they take root and continue to produce healthy hair. Transplantation of gray hair is successful because gray hair has healthy hair follicles.

Dr. Mike Meshkin, a hair transplant specialist based in Los Angeles and Orange County with more that 25 years of experience has been in forefront of advancements in the field of hair restoration.

Does genetics play a role in hairloss ?

posted Nov 14, 2016, 8:54 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin

Does genetics play a role in hairloss?

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.

Some of the less common causes of hair loss that are reversible with treatment, include: 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.

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 eating the right food and proper vitamins for support. 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.

How do you know you are a candidate for hair transplant?

posted Oct 13, 2016, 9:17 AM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Nov 2, 2016, 3:53 PM ]

How do you know you are a candidate for hair transplant?

You have decided on hair restoration and now are looking for a qualified hair restoration surgeon with the most advanced modern technique for the best result. It is important to know the facts about your hair loss so that you can make the right decision. The first step is to do a consultation with a qualified hair restoration specialist to see if you are a good candidate for surgical or medical hair regiment option.

Making an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan requires an examination by hair transplant specialist and not a consultant. The elements that a doctor assesses to determine whether a patient is a good candidate for surgical hair restoration include: the cause of hair loss, the patient's age, goal, and expectations, general health, donor availability, the degree of hair loss, previous hair restoration surgeries, and future progression of hair loss. The doctor should give the patient realistic estimate of the number of grafts, the areas of coverage, the cost for the procedure and the expected result.

During the initial consultation with the specialist, the doctor should spend 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.The physician should 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. The hair restoration specialist should provide all the information necessary for the patient to make an educated decision for any surgical or medical hair treatment options available.

Nowadays only one to two procedures may be needed depending on the degree of balding, patient's donor supply, hair characteristics, and patient's special goals. Hair transplants are remarkably well tolerated and will continue to grow for most, if not all of one's life. However, before committing to a treatment plan, one should be satisfied that all the relevant questions have been addressed.

What normal and abnormal hair loss?

posted Sep 6, 2016, 8:30 AM by Peyman Kalhor   [ updated Nov 2, 2016, 3:54 PM by Dr Mike Meshkin ]

What normal and abnormal hair loss?

One of the most frequently asked questions asked is if the amount of hair loss is normal or abnormal. To answer that question we have to examine the clients degree of hair loss and hair count loss during a range of time period.

Throughout lifespan, we lose hair everyday as hair follicles go through their normal cyclic activity. The average normal number of scalp hair loss due to its natural cyclic process is between 80-100 strands. If the hair is healthy and heredity is not a factor, then these hair s will be replaced and the hair loss will not be noticeable. The first warning signs of extreme hair loss or baldness appear when excessive amounts of hair fall out when one is showering or brushing hair. A more advanced sign of creeping baldness is a definite recession of hair line or Androgenetic alopecia, This is a form of genetic thinning which account for the most common cause of hair loss.

In case of genetic hair loss, one is predisposed and can inherit the genes from either or both parents. The predisposed hair follicles begin to shrink with age and will eventually never grow back.Hair loss related to genetics averages 15% between ages of 18-29 and increases to 50% by the age of 50. By the age of 40 the rate of hair loss decreases to 10% for each decade.

Even if the hair are predetermined to eventually lose hair, there are several steps that can be taken to slow down the progress of hair loss. For starters once extreme shedding occurs, one need not wait for evidence of substantial permanent hair loss. It is best to seek the advise of hair loss specialist who will diagnosis the cause for the hair loss and recommend a medical treatment option to slow down or reverse hair loss at its earliest stage.

What is ARTAS and Neograft FUE hair transplant technique?

posted Aug 30, 2016, 3:05 PM by Dr Mike Meshkin   [ updated Nov 2, 2016, 3:53 PM ]

What is ARTAS and Neograft FUE hair transplant technique?

With the popularity of hair transplantation many questions arise as to the so called modern methods and the potential side effects of the procedure. With today's more advance harvesting techniques thousands of hairs can be transferred from one area to the other. The two harvesting techniques that are the most popular are the FUE and the FUT methods. Both of these techniques if done correctly on the right candidate can be very successful. There are different machines that are commonly used with FUE technique. We will review some of them in this blog.

With the FUE technique, round punches in different sizes are used to extract hair from the donor area in the back of the head. This can be done manually or using different types of machines such as ARTAS , Neograft and manual machines. This technique is being advertised as the most advanced technique for hair transplantation, however it has to be done on the right candidate with smaller sessions or else potential side effects may happen after the hair transplant.

There are different machines that are used for the extraction of the grafts from the donor area in FUE technique. One of the machines is the ARTAS. The ARTAS is a computer utilized machine that has an embedded technology to guide the device in extracting each grafts. Another machine for extraction is the Neograft. The Neograft machine is not computerized and is a devise that is used by a person to extract the grafts, like a manual machine. The manual machine is a machine that is also used by human to extract the grafts as well. In case of Neograft, usually there are technicians that are provided by the manufacturer and are send to the doctor to perform the extraction of the grafts. As for the ARTAS there is minimal involvement of the doctor and machine removes the grafts by itself. All of these devises have some advantages and disadvantages in regards to the utilization of the grafts and also the size of punches used for the extraction. These should be discussed with the doctor before choosing a method of extraction.

During the consultation, the hair transplant specialist should examine the donor hair and texture carefully to make sure that the client is a good candidate for FUE technique. If the client has curly hair or if they have a more advanced Male Patten Hair Loss, then FUE should not be recommended. Before deciding on a harvesting method, and the machine used for harvesting. it is a good idea to discuss all the pros and cons with your doctor. A hair restoration surgeon with experience should do an evaluation and give recommendation customized to each individual's needs and concerns. In the case of FUE technique, it can be successful and is a good procedure for smaller cases and in individuals with straight hair. . If you need greater than 1000 grafts or you have curly hair then it is to your advantage to consider the strip method. It is wise to keep in mind that harvesting is just one aspect of the procedure. To get the most aesthetic result the most important part is the design of the recipient area, the execution of the plan and the surgical skills of the hair transplant surgeon.

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. Dr. Meshkin is a very hands on hair restoration surgeon and with his many years of experience in hair restoration exclusively, he can offer the best hair transplant techniques as well as revisions on old hair transplants.

Beard Transplants: The Before and After In Los Angeles

posted Aug 1, 2016, 4:27 PM by David Khorram   [ updated Aug 1, 2016, 4:32 PM ]

Beard Transplants: The Before and After In Los Angeles

Some men look great with a bare, clean shaven face. They have the facial features that look best exposed and defined. However, there are some who would look great with a good beard because it emphasizes on their jawline and hides any flaws they might have.

To look good, the beard should be even and the hair should be properly spaced and thick enough to show clearly. Men who’re naturally blessed with great beard hair look great, but others? Not so much. At Meshkin Medical, we conduct beard transplant surgeries that would give you the results you need.

Before – Why Get the Procedure Done?

Facial hair immediately grabs attention if you allow it to grow. If it grows well, you don’t need to worry about how it looks because if the beard doesn’t suit your features, you can just shave it off. It’s completely customizable so you can style your beard to look like Tony Stark’s precise goatee or try the Gandalf look.

But to support a good beard, you need good facial hair that has healthy follicles. Unfortunately, not everyone has healthy hair follicles that produce thick hair. Some follicles are damaged by daily shaving while some produce thin, wispy hair that’s not attractive in a beard. You might not even have hair follicles in places where you need them to grow a good beard.

Beard transplant surgery can change that. If you have problems growing and maintaining decent amount of facial hair, you should get a consultation with us because we can help you.

After – How Do We Help?

The beard transplant surgery is similar to hair transplant surgery. We essentially harvest hair follicles from another part of your body, specifically the back of your head, and transplant it to your face. The follicles are placed carefully to ensure you don’t have hair in unwanted places.

The surgeon would make small incisions along your skin and plant the follicles in those places. Those incisions will heal in a matter of days and the follicles would fuse with the surrounding skin.

At first, the hair would fall out after two weeks but you shouldn’t be concerned because that’s just a part of the healing process. It’ll start growing back after three months and you’ll get the facial hair you always wanted.

At Meshkin Medical, we encourage patients to consider all their options and not let opinions sway their decision. Nevertheless, we understand that cost is an important factor in the decision and endeavor to provide the most accurate and honest information to our patients.

Estimated Costs

The cost of the procedure really depends on the kind of results you want. The more hair you need to transplant, the higher the cost will be. If you only want a clean goatee or moustache, you might need only 1,500 to 2,000 grafts. If you want a full beard, you’ll need more than 3,000 grafts. Small procedures where surgeons just need to fill in some gaps, will cost around $3,000. Big procedures to create a full beard would require more grafts and time so they can cost around $6,000 to $7,000.

These are just estimates and you need to get a consultation with a surgeon before you make your decision. The surgeon will explain the procedure and the costs to you. They’ll also explain the long-term benefits and surgery aftercare so you can make an informed choice.

Why Does It Cost So Much?

Beard transplant is a complicated, labor intensive procedure. Surgeons need to harvest individual follicles from your scalp and collect thousands of them to get the best effect. Each follicle then has to be planted into microscopic incisions made on the face. These follicles need to be transplanted without any damage so they require a careful handling. As you can guess, this is a very long and exhausting process for the surgeons and sessions can last for as long as eight hours.

With so much effort and time spent on the procedure, it’s bound to be expensive. You do get value for money though, because the beard will continue to grow naturally after the incisions have healed and the follicles have fused with the surrounding skin. After three months, you’ll have the facial hair you wanted with no added costs in the future because the transplant is permanent.
