Androgenetic Alopecia

  1. A loss of hair from the hair bearing region of the scalp is known as Alopecia.
  2. Androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of progressive hair loss.
  3. The male pattern androgenetic alopecia usually manifests after puberty (20’s or early 30’s) with progressive loss of hair over the fronto temporal and vertex regions which is driven by adequate androgen stimulation.
  4. It is associated with an increased conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone due to an increased activity of the enzyme 5-ɑ reductase.


  1. It is caused by a combination of genetic and hormonal factors. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the main hormone responsible for androgenetic alopecia in genetically susceptible individuals.
  2. Excessive sun exposure, pollution, dirt.
  3. Protein deprivation in diet.

What does AGA look like :

  1. AGA looks different in males and females.
  2. Hair in affected areas are initially smaller in diameter seen as ‘whisker’ or ‘kinky’ hair as compared to the unaffected areas before they become absent.
  3. In males, the usual pattern of hair loss is receding hairline and loss of hair from top and front of the head.
  4. In women, hair loss or thinning typically occurs at the crown of the scalp with widening of partition.

Treatment :

  1. Topical and oral treatment: Minoxidil, when applied topically, may slow down the progression and restore hair in majority of cases. Finasteride acts by lowering dihydrotestosterone in scalp.
  2. Surgical treatment: Hair transplantation is advised for advanced cases using autografts from occipital area which gives good cosmetic results.

Our services include:


  1. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) hair fall treatment is the most widely used treatment for natural restoration of hair.
  2. How does PRP treatment work:

    PRP is an autologous concentrate of plasma with a higher count of platelets than whole blood. On activation, the platelets degranulate to release multiple growth factors which are useful for regeneration and restorations of human tissue.

  3. Procedure: 15-20 ml of blood is collected from the cubital vein of the patient from which the precious platelets are extracted after centrifugation of the sample. These platelets are further activated to release growth factors which are then injected into your scalp 1-2 cm apart, 0.1 ml at each site.
  4. Advantages of PRP:
    1. PRP therapy is a safe procedure since the patient’s own blood is used to stimulate development of new follicles.
    2. Minimal pain.
    3. Least chances of infection.
    4. Minimal downtime.
    5. Quick results.
