Male Hair Loss – Good Progress Within 3 Months

Posted by Gary Heron, on June 17th, 2008, under HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED, MALE HAIR LOSS

This Patient came to us in January this year. He was suffering from Male Hair Loss (MPB).

(Before) JANUARY 2008 TO MARCH 2008 (After)

We prescribed the following treatments:

Minoxidil 5% plus Medroxy Progestrone: Is a vaodilator that dilates the blood capillaries responsible for the blood supply to the hair follicles.

Biostim 15%: This stimulant contains a very effective natural 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It reduces the amount of 5-alpha reductase in the scalp and thereby reduces the formation of DHT, stabilising hair loss and encouraging a healthy growth cycle.

Wigs

Posted by Gary Heron, on June 13th, 2008, under ALOPECIA AREATA, TRICHOTALK

Wigs are a common treatment choice in patients with alopecia areata. You can get some wigs on the NHS. However, this needs a referral to hospital as only a skin specialist can sanction the prescription of a wig on the NHS.

Other treatments
Various other treatments may be used or advised. These include the following:

Special light therapy or phototherapy (PUVA) has been used with some limited success. This treatment requires many light therapy sessions in a hospital out-patient department.

The immunosuppressant medicine called ciclosporin usually works well to cause hair re-growth in extensive alopecia areata. However, its use is limited by potential side-effects. Also, hair loss often recurs when the medication is stopped.

Dermatography (tattooing) can be used to simulate eyebrows that have fallen out.

Counselling is sometimes helpful for people who find it difficult to cope with hair loss.

Remember to use sun block or a hat to protect bald patches when out in the sun.
There is not enough evidence to say how effective complementary treatments are in treating alopecia areata. (For example, acupuncture, aromatherapy, etc.)

Mens Health:Trichologist Gary Heron – Splitting hairs: We sort fact from fiction when it comes to your hair. Can baldness be cured?

Posted by Gary Heron, on June 10th, 2008, under HAIR LOSS CLINIC REVIEWED, TRICHOLOGIST

Splitting Hairs

We sort fact from fiction when it comes to your hair

Can baldness be cured?

“Take the legs of a newt, the fingernails of an insurance salesman…” Amid the bogus pills, internet potions and improbable scalp-weaves there’s genuine hope for the six million Brits afflicted by male pattern baldness (MPB). “Among the estimated 300,000 hair loss treatments available, two have been clinically proven to slow MPB and help re-growth,” says Gary Heron, trichologist at The Hair Centre in London. They are finasteride (available as the one-a-day private prescription pill Propecia) and minoxidil, an externally applied solution sold as Regaine. Research in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology  found 80% of men using finasteride retained more hair than placebo-takers, and two thirds actually re-grew hair. Roughly half of men using minoxidil staved off further balding, and 15% recorded re-growth.

Does baldness come from my Mum’s side?

Tony Soprano could pin plenty on his ma, but like any thinning man he can’t let the maternal side of the family take the full rap for his forehead expansion. “Genetics do play a major part in male pattern baldness, but the gene can come from either parent,” says Heron. Just because your Dad’s as bald as Britney in breakdown, it doesn’t mean you will be, but your grandma’s wispy moustache doesn’t mean she’s in the clear: “MPB can often skip a generation,” adds Heron.
