You are suffering from androgenic alopecia which is also called as pattern baldness. The hairs start reducing in density at the crown (top) and also the hairline starts receeding from the front. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. It is usually accompanied by severe dandruff which we call seborrhoea. The FDA approved treatment for this condition is the best. No oil or cream will magically work because the hairs are getting miniaturised and eventually disappearing due to the hormonal effects of DHT on the hair roots. Please call me or contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment. Do not start treatment without consulting. I can give guidance and then you can continue treatment on your own.

Ionization Therapy - Hair Regrowth With Ozone Therapy!

Dermatologist, Delhi
Ionization Therapy - Hair Regrowth With Ozone Therapy!

The word ozone makes on think of the layers of the earth’s atmosphere and global warming but rarely does it make on think about hair. However, ozone therapy or ionization therapy can be very good for hair regrowth has come to become very popular in recent times. Ozone or O3 is a blue, odorous gas which is naturally present in air from where it can be extracted. Alternatively, ozone can be chemically synthesized in a laboratory. Apart from your luscious locks, ozone therapy can also be used to treat heart ailments, diabetes, problems with vision, Parkinson’s disease, dental cavities and slipped discs.

Unlike an oxygen molecule, ozone has three oxygen atoms. These have the ability to release free radicals when injected into any part of the body. When injected into the scalp, the ozone is oxidized and peptones are developed on the hair shafts. A further protective layer is then formed over each strand of hair by the peptones. This protects the hair from breakage and keeps it from falling.

The ozone molecule also strengthens and rejuvenates the hair follicles. This helps nourish the scalp and the hair. It also improves blood circulation and reduces microbial infection on the scalp. Along with this, ionization therapy helps add volume to hair and treats issues such as dandruff, frizziness and split ends. In the case of coloured hair, ionization therapy can help hair colour last longer by strengthening the bond between the dye and hair.

Both men and women can benefit from ionization therapy. Ionization therapy can be used to treat a number of issues related to the hair. It is most commonly used to address cases of hair fall, thinning of hair, alopecia, balding and seborrheic dermatitis. These conditions could be caused by genetic traits, pollution, aging, hormonal imbalances, poor diet, infections or poor hair care.

Ionization therapy can be provided by a doctor or in certain spas. It is preferable to undergo this procedure under the guidance of a certified dermatologist. Hair ionization is a painless procedure that does not require any hospitalization or anesthesia. The ozone rays are passed into the scalp through a comb-like device. This may be used 15-20 minutes a week.

Like any other procedure, there are certain risks associated with ionization therapy. If excessive ozone is injected into the scalp, it can be very toxic. Instead of strengthening the hair follicles, this could damage them further. It is also not advisable for pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers and people with chronic skin allergies. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hairfall is a condition, which is also known as Alopecia and is known to include the aspect of thinning of hair as well. Genetics and hormones play a vital role in hairfall in both women and men. Few other factors are also responsible for hairfall. The hair growth consists of 3 phases.

  1. The anagen phase-active phase in hair growth. This phase lasts for 2-7 yrs.
  2. The second phase - catagen phase. This phase immediately follows the anagen phase. It lasts for around 10- 14 days and the hair stops getting blood supply and this leads the hair to become dead.
  3. The last phase is telogen phase. It is a resting phase.

The entire cycle is repeated after the last stage and it continues. Every single hair undergoes this process.

Acne Caused Due To Dandruff - Saying Goodbye To Them!

Acne Caused Due To Dandruff - Saying Goodbye To Them!

Dandruff is a major cause for hairfall and hair weakening. It is estimated to affect as many as one in five individuals in india. Acne is a skin condition that happens when pores get clogged with dead skin cells and oil, giving rise to pimples. It can be caused by numerous reasons like hormonal changes, dandruff, improper diet, stress, consumption of specific drugs, excessive use of cosmetic products etc.

Dandruff has been associated with presence of yeast or fungi, it is also associated with abnormal skin ultrastructure. Dandruff makes the skin on your scalp flaky. These dry flakes of skin are often responsible for clogging the pores on your face, mostly affecting your forehead. In this way, dandruff triggers appearance of acne and can worsen the condition of your skin if you already have pimples.

Eradicating dandruff from your scalp is the best way to prevent acne breakouts on your skin due to dandruff.

Here are some simple ways to keep acne due to dandruff away from your skin:

  1. Brush your hair at least twice a day: Brushing your hair at least two times a day will ensure that the dead cells on your scalp are removed and don't get a chance to clog pores. This option is highly beneficial in getting rid of acne caused by dandruff.
  2. Use medicated anti-dandruff shampoo: Topical medicated solutions like a medicated shampoo should be used as a treatment. Short contact period of shampoo with scalp is important for more benefit. Good conditioner should also be used after head wash with shampoo.
  3. Ensure that your hair stays off your face: Keeping hair off your face will ensure that dandruff doesn't come in contact with your skin and clog pores, preventing pimples. For this, you can use hair bands or tie your hair in a ponytail or braid.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
