What is Hair Loss?

Hair loss, also known as alopecia or baldness, refers to the loss of hair from the scalp or the entire body. It occurs due to disruption in the hair growth cycle. It can be hereditary or may occur secondary to medical illness, hormonal changes or drugs. It may affect men, women and children. A normal individual sheds 50 to 100 hairs per day, but it is not noticeable as new hair growth occurs simultaneously. Hair loss that occurs with ageing is usually hereditary and is the commonest reason for baldness. In women, hair is considered to be an essential part of their identity, while in men, healthy hair is considered to be a sign of youth and vigor. Hair loss affects the appearance of an individual and hence cause psychological distress and inferiority complex. It can impair the quality of life of an individual.

Treatment for Male Pattern Baldness at Hair Tranplant Centre Malaysia

  1. Medications: The two FDA-approved medications that can be used to slow down or undo the hair loss in the early stages of pattern baldness are Minoxidil and Finasteride. Minoxidil (Rogaine) is applied directly to the scalp to stimulate the hair growth. Finasteride (Propecia) prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, and thus, is helpful in treating male pattern baldness. It is more effective in treating pattern hair loss at the vertex than that at the front of the head and temples.

  2. Hair Transplant: This is the most effective treatment for pattern baldness in men. In this procedure, the hair follicles are plucked out from areas least affected by male pattern baldness (usually the back of the scalp) and transplanted on the bald regions. We, At Hair Transplant Centre Malaysia provide hair transplant surgery using the FUE technique only! This is because the FUE method, unlike FUT, does not leave a permanent scar behind.

  3. Scalp Micropigmentation: In case you are not suitable for any hair restoration method, you can go for Scalp Micropigmentation. In this method, natural pigments are placed inside the epidermal of your scalp so as to give the look and feel of a shaved head.

We, at Hair Transplant Centre Malaysia take pride in being one of the best clinics to give effective treatment for hair loss in Malaysia.
