Did you know there more than 40 types of hair loss patterns
There are more than 40 different types of hair loss. In certain types of hair loss, homeopathy can slow down the progression of bald patches by filling up scanty hair areas with new hair leading to complete recovery.
International studies have shown that natural ingredients found in homeopathic remedies are effective in treating hair loss. According to one such study, homeopathic medicines inhibit the activity of 5 alpha reductase - the key enzyme in formation of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone). DHT is the hormone that triggers hair loss. Thus, homeopathy is effective in treating pattern alopecia without side-effects
Advanced scientific technology for better treatment outcomeAdvanced technology at allows our doctors to quantify the level of progress achieved in the treatment. Our technology also helps to measure the treatment outcome, enhances the results and helps to save time and money.Our video microscopic test measures the treatment outcome for hair loss. It is a simple and painless test that magnifies one's hair and scalp 200 times. It gives our homeopathic doctors an idea of the type of hair loss and scalp condition. It can also be used to predict hair loss even before one experiences it
Male-pattern baldness is usually diagnosed based on the appearance and pattern of hair loss, along with a detailed medical history, including questions about the prevalence of hair loss in your family. At RAGHAVS HOMEOPATHY we examine the scalp under magnification in order to assess the degree of miniaturisation of hair follicles.
Our doctor conducts a painless video-microscopy test, which magnifies the hair follicle and scalp up to 200 times. This test will show the following:
Male Pattern Baldness - Symptoms
The most common symptoms of male-pattern baldness are as follows:
Excessive loss of hair;
Hairline receding from the front, that is, temples;
Overall thinning of hair;
Reduction in the density of hair;
Bald patch on top of the scalp;
partial baldness; and
Complete baldness at a later stage.
Male-pattern baldness, in its early stages, affects the frontal area and vertex (top or crown) of the head. When it spreads over time, the occipital (back of the head) and parietal areas (sides) remain more or less unaltered.
The hair-growth cycle in men with pattern baldness produces shorter and thinner hair with each advancing cycle. This happens under the influence of the hormone dihydrotestosterone.
In simple terms, every time a man’s hair falls out, the new hair that comes up is thinner than the earlier strand; it also does not grow as long and the colour also gets lighter.
In the end, what remains is very thin ‘peach-fuzz’, or fair hair.
Male-pattern baldness progresses through different stages, as shown in the following illustration.
This illustration shows the Norwood–Hamilton scale, which grades male-pattern baldness from stages 1 to 7.
