Excess or lack of hormones in the patient's body can trigger a whole range of negative phenomena. So, an excess of male sex hormones can disrupt the functioning of the sweat glands and start the process of androgenic alopecia, in which the patient's hair begins to fall out intensively. The disease occurs in both sexes and is treatable if the main hormone factor is eliminated.
According to medical statistics, androgenic alopecia in men and women is caused by the same factor - excessive production of male sex hormones and excessive sensitivity to them from the hair follicles. In addition, the pathological process is influenced by:
the patient has bad habits;
diseases of the digestive system;
eating disorders, unbalanced diet;
a state of chronic stress;
taking medications of a hormonal group that affects the production of androgens;
disturbances in the work of the genitourinary system.
In addition, androgenic alopecia in women can be caused by the development of hormone-producing tumors, polycystic ovary disease, or hormonal disruptions during menopause.
The main objective of the treatment course is to suppress the excessive production of hormones, as well as to eliminate the factors that caused intense baldness. For women, this is the treatment of polycystic ovary disease or the removal of a tumor that produces excess androgens. In men, it is enough to suppress the production of hormones in order to restore the natural hairline. The basis of the drug course is the use of a local preparation containing minoxidil or its analogs, which have a stimulating effect on the hair follicles. It is allowed to use the specified agent for the treatment of androgenic alopecia in women during menopause.
Also, the treatment course includes:
electrical stimulation on the darsonval device;
ozone therapy, etc.
Accelerate and enhance the therapeutic effect of androgenetic alopecia allow taking biological supplements and vitamin complexes, special masks and hair sprays with vegetable oils of avocado, jojoba and black currant. If the process of hair loss is irreversible, surgery is possible to transplant skin with hair follicles from other parts of the head.
