Alopecia (hair loss) may occur after major surgery, after delivery, or due to other physical or psychological stress. It can also be attributed to underlying diseases that cause hormonal imbalance or to the use of certain drugs.
About hair loss
Some hair loss cases are part of the natural growth cycle – growth, rest, fall and regrowth. Hair loss can be temporary or permanent, depending on the cause.
Impact on daily life
People who lose their hair, both men and women, can experience depression, anxiety, social isolation, low self-esteem and poor self-image.
Hair loss treatments
Dermago can help you manage hair loss
With proper treatment and close follow-up, hair loss can be reduced!
In foam or lotion applied 1 to 2 times per day.
Depending on the cause, different tablets to be taken continuously.
According to your diagnosis, our team of experts will recommend a treatment adapted to your condition.
In all cases, these treatments must be taken over a very long period of time. In fact, the treatment works and stabilises hair loss while it is taken, but when it is stopped, there is a good chance that hair loss will resume in the case of androgenetic alopecia.
The causes of hair loss
Non-scarring alopecia is more common and includes mostly three conditions: androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata and telogen effluvium.
Androgenetic alopecia results in the appearance, on the top of the head, of thinner and often less pigmented hair, which becomes lighter. This baldness can affect the top of the head uniformly, or start by affecting the tip of the head or the temples.
Androgenetic alopecia results from two factors: a genetic predisposition and sensitivity to androgens.
Alopecia areata or "alopecia"
It is important to note that alopecia is not contagious, but rather an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss. This hair loss is usually localised. This type of alopecia can be isolated over time and resolve itself. However, the disease can also progress. It then becomes important to treat the problem.
Telogen effluvium consists of post-stress hair loss and is signaled by a thinning impression of the hair that is accompanied by a large quantity of hair found on clothes, on the floor, in the shower or on the hairbrush.
Telogen effluvium can have many causes. Hair loss occurs 2 to 3 months after a triggering factor such as a serious infection, a high fever, childbirth, an accident or even a psycho-affective shock. However, it is crucial to remember that this type of alopecia is generally temporary and reversible.
