The commonest cause of hair loss in both women and men is genetics. In fact, 95 percent people experience baldness due to heredity while the remaining 5 percent baldness problems occur due to a number of things including stress, illness, dies and medications.
Our world class dermatologists at Institute of Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery offer effective solutions for hair loss problems. Our cosmetic surgeons are equipped with all modern equipments and specialize in cutting edge hair loss treatments.
Factors that may cause hair loss include:
• Medications, minerals, or vitamins: Drugs which are used for treating high blood pressure, depression, heart problems or gout can cause baldness. High levels of vitamin A or low levels of protein or iron, and birth control pills, for women, cause hair loss.
• Illness: Sever infections, thyroid, or flu; fungus infections such as ringworm of the scalp can cause baldness
For women, childbirth can cause temporary hair loss largely due to the changes that take place in the body. In some cases, children or adults may have a condition known as trichotillomania, in which there is a compulsion to pull out scalp hair, eyelashes, or eyebrow hair.
