Baldness not only affects the appearance but also one’s overall confidence. If you looking for baldness treatment in Bangalore, one can visit Dr. Rajdeep Mysore, who offers advance treatment for baldness management at Charma Clinic.
Baldness, medically known as Alopecia, is the hair loss or lack of hair on body parts where it should be present. It is mostly noticed on the scalp but it can occur on any hairy site of the body. For some people, it is accepted as part of the natural aging process while for others it is a distress.
Baldness can be temporary or permanent. Permanent baldness or hair loss is when there are any abnormalities in hair growth or damage to hair follicles. Temporary baldness or hair loss is an outcome of transitory damage to hair follicles.
Baldness or hair loss can be a result of varieties of reasons, ranging from genetic to environmental. Some common causes include aging, hormonal changes, telogen effluvium, and family history. Permanent hair loss is dominated by androgenetic alopecia or pattern baldness. This is a type of hair loss that happens in a specific pattern and is caused due to genetic predisposition in both men and women. Other causes of hair loss include alopecia areata, toxic alopecia, trichotillomania (hair-pulling disorder), and scarring or cicatricial alopecia.
For some people, the reason behind hair loss may be related to an individual’s lifestyle or environment. The causative factors of hair loss may include certain medications including cancer treatment with chemotherapy, ailments or diseases such as anemia or thyroid disease, or lifestyle factors like stress, alcohol consumption, smoking, and UV or chemical exposure.
Still unsure what has caused hair loss for you? Consult Dr. Rajdeep Mysore, dermatologist in Bangalore, to determine your cause of hair loss.
Baldness is primarily of two types. The symptoms of baldness depend upon its type.
Dermatologist Dr. Rajdeep Mysore, will first carry out a fair assessment of the patient to verify the extent of his/her alopecia, the health or quality of the hair follicle on the donor site, and the scalp condition. After the assessment, the dermatologist will talk to the patient about all the baldness treatment options in Bangalore available and together decide on the best-suited treatment for the patient. Some forms of baldness that are temporary may resolve without treatment. Hair loss or alopecia treatments provided by a dermatologist may include:
1. Growth factor concentrate (GFC)
Growth factor concentrate or GFC is a minimally-invasive therapy for hair loss treatment in Bangalore. The treatment involves injecting of patient’s blood in the form of an injectable preparation. The injectable preparation contains the blood platelets-derived natural growth factors in a highly concentrated form. It is directly administered into the balding sections of the scalp to supply the hair roots with growth factors and allow hair regrowth.
The first step of the treatment is to extract the peripheral blood of the patient and then use a platelet activation solution to release the growth factors. After repeated centrifugation of blood, all growth factors are collected and prepared to be injected into the bald areas of the scalp.
To achieve and maintain the desired outcome of GFC hair treatment, the patient needs to undergo repeated sessions.
2. Scalp microneedling
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure, also known as collagen-inducing therapy, that can address different effects of aging. This technique involves the use of a skin roller or a handheld skin-needling device that has multiple tiny needles to create minor skin injuries. The body naturally responds to the controlled injury to the skin by increasing collagen production in the skin.
When microneedling is performed on bald areas of the scalp, it can help regenerate the health of hair follicles. It can cause new hair growth or may thicken thinning hair as recognized in pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia.

3. Hair transplant
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure performed by hair replacement/transplant surgeons to treat severe baldness or hair thinning. This treatment involves moving the healthy, D-HT hormone-resistant hair follicles from the donor area to the recipient area of the scalp. The donor area is usually the back or sides of the head while the recipient area is the balding or thinning regions of the scalp or areas affected by trauma. If there are no donor sites on the scalp, male patients can still treat baldness by taking hair from other hairy body parts like their chest and beard.
Hair transplantation can be done by two techniques: The traditional FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) method and Advanced FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method. This procedure can help patients get a head full of healthy, thick hair for a lifetime.

How can I prevent Baldness?
There is no way that you can prevent pattern baldness. However, you can try to slow down your hair loss or else conceal your hair loss issue. You can still regrow hair in areas of hair loss by undergoing some medical procedures designed to treat hair loss.
Can home remedies cure my Baldness?
Some natural remedies can help regrow hair in some types of hair loss. One of the best home remedies for hair loss is to switch to a healthy, nutritious diet rich in vitamins and minerals.
However, if baldness is genetic, home remedies won’t work out. In such cases, hair growth is successful with dermatologist-prescribed approaches like hair-growth stimulating medications, laser therapy, or hair transplantation. Whatever hair growth treatment your dermatologist prescribes; it is important to ensure following a healthy lifestyle alongside to avoid hair loss and its worsening. A healthy lifestyle means having a healthy diet, reducing stress, no smoking, and no alcohol consumption. If you have pattern baldness, don’t fall for miracle cures advertised on the websites, since they are rarely successful.
What is the most effective treatment for baldness?
Although baldness is an inherited condition in the majority of men and women, external factors can exacerbate it. These factors can be an unhealthy diet, stress, aggressive hair care products, and tight hairstyles. There are various options to treat hair loss including topical products, medications, non-surgical hair therapies like GFC, mesotherapy, and microneedling; and hair transplants. A dermatologist can help find the most appropriate solution as per the patient's case by diagnosing the problem. However, when excessive hair loss or alopecia is detected in an individual, the most effective solution or definitive cure for the problem is hair transplantation.
