MALE PATTERN BALDNESS IN FOCUS: HOW DHT AFFECTS HAIR LOSS!

The feeling is overwhelming while one faces hair loss problems and looking for reasons that could be of wide arrays such as bad diet, medication, changing hairstyles, chemical cosmetics, inherited genes and so on.

All might be true…!

But, primarily hair loss in men and women is caused by DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) that is a male steroid hormone, is the reason for male sexual characteristics and binds the receptors on the scalp. Imbalanced DHT may cause heavy and permanent hair loss.
The overall concept of DHT is complicated since its relation to hair loss is easily recognizable. In the blog, we would help you in understanding how DHT is produced in your body and effect of DHT in on hair follicles.

Defining DHT

– DHT abbreviated form of Dihydrotestosterone is a powerful male sex hormone that is a byproduct of testosterone. DHT is an androgen that is responsible for male sex characteristics and things like producing male genitalia during pregnancy.
– In simple words, DHT is one of the hormones that make a man. Also, It is different from other sex hormones like testosterone.
– As we know DHT is a byproduct of testosterone. 5α-reductase is an enzyme that is responsible for the metabolism of androgen, estrogen and bile acid. 5α-reductase enzymes convert a certain part of testosterone into DHT for skin, liver, prostate and hair follicles.

Relation of Hair Growth With DHT

– If your hair loss is genetic then at some age DHT can start the process called ‘Miniaturisation’ where your DHT binds the receptors and cause hair follicles to shrink, weaken and even die.
– DHT is a reason behind the development of Male/Female Pattern Baldness (Androgenic Alopecia). Although, is also the main factor to hair growth in areas like chest, beard, back and other areas.

DHT Affects Hair Growth Cycle

Hair growth is followed by a cycle that has 4 stages. Each hair passes through these stages. They are as follows-

  • Anagen phase (Gowing Phase) hair starts to grow initially- 2-7 years.
  • Catagen phase(Transition Phase)hair follicles get shrunk and hair move upwards to base- few days to a week.
  • Telogen phase( Resting Phase)Old hairs stay in rest and new hairs begin to enter growing phase- 2-4 months.
  • Exogen phase(Shedding Phase or New Hair Phase)Old hairs starts shedding and new hairs continues to grow
  • Anagen phase (Gowing Phase)hair starts to grow initially- 2-7 years.

Doctors consider 50-100 hair shedding every day as normal but more than it could be a sign of hair loss.

DHT affects the growth of hair as it increases the miniaturization process of hair follicles. In hair loss anagen phase reduces and telogen phase becomes stronger means growing phase is shorter and hair can not grow long as before.

Over time, anagen phase becomes shorter and hair stops coming out of the base or surface of the skin and telogen phase causing more than usual hairs to fall.

If not treated, with each hair cycle follicles become smaller and hair thinner. Hairs turns into vellus hairs (short, thin, light and unshiny) that might disappear response to imbalanced androgens.

So, DHT affects the hair growth and may cause temporary or permanent baldness. It has many treatments such as medications, PRP, hair transplant and more.

Cost Of Hair Transplant In India

In recent time the demand of the hair transplantation has increased, dramatically and India is the most preferred place in India for hair transplant treatment. So, what is the cost of hair transplant in Delhi or what factors affect the cost? This blog will give you a proper idea of it.

Probably, you know what hair transplant or may be not. Hair transplant is process of removing hairs from the part of head where hair fall does not occur and carefully planting them to balding areas. It’s a surgical method carried out under local anaesthesia which makes it completely painless and comfortable. Hair transplant provides permanent and natural looking results.

Although, the cost of hair transplant is affected by several factors, they are the cost determinants.

Let’s know what are these.

Number of grafts needed-

Number of hair grafts On lower side (Rs. 30/- per hair Graft) On higher side (Rs. 45/- per hair Graft) No. of Sittings Required
(1 Sitting = 4 to 6 hours )
1000 Hair Grafts Rs.30000/- Rs.45000/- 1
1500 Hair Grafts Rs.45000/- Rs.67000/- 1
2000 Hair Grafts Rs.60000/- Rs.90000/- 1-2

3500 Hair Grafts Lump Sum Price Quote Lump Sum Price Quote 2
4000 Hair Grafts Lump Sum Price Quote Lump Sum Price Quote 2-3

The cost of hair transplant is, usually, given in per graft. Therefore the overall cost of the procedure depends on the how much hair grafts are required to be planted on the scalp of the patient to cover the bald area. Generally, requirement of large number of hair grafts can lower the price of per graft.

Type of Treatment

There are two types of procedures available for hair restoration: FUT(Follicular Unit Transplantation) and FUE(Follicular Unit Extraction). These procedures have different costs. Generally, it’s been seen that the cost of FUE is more than FUT. However it depends on surgeon for which type of surgery he charges more.

Place of The Clinic/Doctor

As we can see in the picture the price of the hair transplant is varying in different countries. Just like on city level prices of hair transplant in India, could be different. Metro cities doctors charge more for hair transplant than the small cities.
Prices can shuffle due to high competition as more numbers of clinics are located in a single area or city.

Less Hair In Donor Area

Not having enough hair on the back side of the scalp can affect the price of hair transplantation. The doctor would first evaluate the donor area of the scalp and perform diagnosis. In such cases, doctors take hair from another part of body & harvest into scalp bald area that is called body hair transplant & it may increase the cost by 10 to 15 %.

Complexity of Surgery

Due to certain issues hair transplant can be complex like skin elasticity. Skin in the different part of the body comprises a different level of elasticity. like on knee skin can be pinched and pulled away, easier than the areas like chicks and palms.

In hair transplantation, it plays an important role because from the skin hairs follicles and tissues are extracted. Hard skin makes the process of extraction hard. Patients with such cases are treated with a higher cost than the normal.

Experience and Branding

The more experienced and proficient the surgeon would be the more he will charge for his services, resulting in desired results to patients. Often, surgeons with less experience do not provide the wanted results patients expect and their money can be wasted.

Also, doctors, holding multiple qualifications & awards in the field and membership of international medical organizations are more trustworthy for hiring their services. Yes, it can cost you more but results would be unbelievable.
