Androgenetic alopecia is a genetical disorder characterized by the gradual conversion of terminal hairs into indeterminate, and finally into vellus, hair. It is a common disease that affects men and women. The pattern of hair loss in women differs from male-pattern baldness.
Androgenic alopecia is hair loss that occurs due to an underlying susceptibility of hair follicles to androgenic miniaturization. Classic androgenic hair loss in males begins above the temples and vertex, or calvaria, of the scalp. As it progresses, a rim of hair at the sides and rear of the head remains. This has been referred to as a 'Hippocratic wreath', and rarely progresses to complete baldness. Androgenic alopecia is typically experienced as a "moderately stressful condition that diminishes body image satisfaction

Congenital Hypotrichosis is a condition of no hair growth. Unlike alopecia, which describes hair loss where formerly there was hair growth, hypotrichosis describes a situation where there wasn't any hair growth in the first place. Hypotrichoses are conditions that affect individuals right from birth and usually stay throughout their lives.
Hypotrichosis is a common feature of Hallermann–Streiff syndrome as well as others. It can also be used to describe the lack of hair growth due to chemotherapy. Congenital hypotrichosis and atrichia are among the most complex areas of hair growth disorders, with several apparently distinctive entities. Numerous individuals have so far been described with decreased numbers of hair follicles, smaller follicles and/or fragile abnormal hairs

Congenital alopecia is the loss of hair, complete and absolute. More commonly it consists of alopecia, with scanty, incompletely grown, or lanugo-like hair. It is commonly associated with other defects like dental aplasias. In a few instances it was found in association with anomalies in the sweat glands, impaired senses of taste and smell and epidermolysis bullosa.
Alopecia as an outcome of chemotherapy for a malignancy can be very distressing. The loss of hair usually is temporary and the hair will grow back after the course of treatment is completed. Male patients may feel more comfortable wearing a hat or cap when out in public. Female patients who wish to wear a wig are encouraged to obtain one that is lightweight and the same color as their hair.

Corticosteroids are man-made drugs that closely resemble cortisol, a hormone that adrenal glands produce naturally. Corticosteroids are different from the male hormone-related steroid compounds that some athletes abuse. It is class of chemicals that includes the steroid hormones produced in the adrenal cortex of vertebrates as well as the synthetic analogues.
Corticosteroids are a class of chemical substances that include steroid hormones that are produced in the adrenal cortex of vertebrates as well as the synthetic analogues of these hormones. Corticosteroids are involved in a wide range of physiological processes, including stress response, immune response, regulation of inflammation, carbohydrate metabolism, protein catabolism, blood electrolyte levels, and behavior. E.g: Corticosterone, Cortisone, Aldosterone.

Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) occurs in approximately 50% of women by the age of 50 years old. Although it starts with increased shedding, over time the hair loss is characterized primarily by a decrease in hair density over the top of the scalp. Affected women note a decrease in the size of their hair.
Female pattern baldness involves a typical pattern of hair loss in women, due to hormones, aging, and genes. FPHL has a strong genetic predisposition. The mode of inheritance is polygenic, indicating that there are many genes that contribute to FPHL, and these genes could be inherited from either parent, or both. Genetic testing to assess risk of balding is currently not recommended, as it is unreliable. The majority of women with FPHL have normal levels of androgens in their bloodstream.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is a method of “harvesting,” donor hair in a follicular unit hair transplant procedure. In FUE hair transplant surgery, an instrument is used to make a small, circular incision in the skin around a follicular unit, separating it from the surrounding tissue. The unit is then extracted directly from the scalp, leaving a small open hole.
In Follicular Unit Extraction harvesting, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the hair restoration patient's donor area, ideally one at a time. This differs from strip-harvesting because, in strip harvesting, a strip of skin is removed from the patient and then dissected into many individual follicular units. The follicular units obtained by either method are the basic building blocks of follicular unit transplantation

Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) is a primary lymphocytic cicatricial alopecia with a distinctive clinical pattern of hair loss characterized by progressive recession of the frontotemporal hairline. This particular form of alopecia currently is considered a variant of lichen planopilaris because it is often accompanied by the the presence of cutaneous and/or mucous membrane lichen planus in patients.
Frontal fibrosing alopecia usually affects post-menopausal women over the age of 50. It is characterised by usually symmetrical band of hair loss on the front and sides of the scalp, and loss of eyebrows. The edge may appear moth-eaten, and single "lonely" hairs may persist in the bald areas. The skin in the affected area usually looks normal but may be pale, shiny or mildly scarred without visible follicular openings. At the margins of the bald areas, close inspection shows redness and scaling around hair follicles.

Hair Follicle is a sac from which a hair grows and into which the sebaceous (oil) glands open. It is lined by cells derived from the epidermal (outside) layer of the skin. Each follicle normally goes through a five-year cycle of growth, averaging about six inches (15 cm) of growth per year.
A hair follicle is a part of the skin, which grows a hair by packing old cells together. Attached inside the top of the follicle are sebaceous glands, which are tiny sebum-producing glands in almost all skin except on the palms, lips and soles of the feet. The thicker the hair, the more the number of sebaceous glandsThe average growth rate of healthy hair follicles on the scalp is nearly 0.5 inches (13 mm) per month.

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure used to treat baldness or hair loss. Typically, tiny patches of scalp are removed from the back and sides of the head and implanted in the bald spots in the front and top of the head. It is a cosmetic procedure performed for significant hair loss, thinning hair, or bald spots.
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from a part of the body called the 'donor site' to bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding, like the back of the head, are transplanted to the bald scalp. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle

Hair loss, or alopecia, is a concern for men, women, and children. Treatments for hair loss include medications such as Propecia and Rogaine, hair replacements, and hair restoration. It may be patchy or diffusive in manner.
Some types of hair loss can be caused by alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder. The extreme forms of alopecia areata are alopecia totalis, which involves the loss of all head hair, and alopecia universalis, which involves the loss of all hair from the head and the body. Hair loss and hypotrichosis can have many causes, including fungal infection, traumatic damage, such as by compulsive pulling (trichotillomania), as a result of radiotherapy or chemotherapy, and as a result of nutritional deficiencies such as iron deficiency.

Lichen planopilaris (LPP) is an uncommon inflammatory scalp disorder which is clinically characterized by perifollicular erythema, follicular hyperkeratosis, and permanent hair loss. LPP is considered a follicular form of lichen planus based upon shared pathologic features and the frequent coexistence of clinical findings of these disorders.
Lichen planopilaris typically presents as smooth white patches of scalp hair loss. No hair follicle openings can be seen in the areas of hair loss. At the edges of these patches there may be scale and redness around each hair follicle. Hairs can be easily pulled out. It is multifocal and small patches may merge to form larger irregular areas. lichen planopilaris is rare, it is one of the common causes of scarring hair loss of the scalp.

Laser therapy is the non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique.
Laser therapy is a treatment that uses a strong beam of light to cut, burn, or destroy tissue. The term LASER stands for "Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation." Lasers are more precise than traditional surgical instruments. Cuts can be made shorter and shallower. This causes less damage to tissue. Laser therapies are medical treatments that use focused light. Unlike most light sources, it is tuned to very specific wavelengths. This allows it to be focused into powerful beams.

Telogen effluvium is a form of non-scarring alopecia characterized by diffuse hair shedding, often with an acute onset. A chronic form with a more insidious onset and a longer duration also exists. It is a reactive process caused by a metabolic or hormonal stress or by medications.
It is a scalp disorder characterized by the thinning or shedding of hair resulting from the early entry of hair in the telogen phase (the resting phase of the hair follicle).Emotional or physiological stress may result in an alteration of the normal hair cycle and cause the disorder, with potential etiologies including eating disorders, fever, childbirth, chronic illness, major surgery, anemia, severe emotional disorders, crash diets, hypothyroidism, and drugs.

Minoxidil is used to stimulate hair growth and to slow balding. It is most effective for people under 40 years of age. Minoxidil has no effect on receding hairlines. It does not cure baldness; generally new hair is lost within a few months if the drug is stopped.
Minoxidil is an antihypertensive vasodilator medication. It also slows or stops hair loss and promotes hair regrowth. Minoxidil is generally well tolerated, but common side effects include burning or irritation of the eye, itching, redness or irritation at the treated area, as well as unwanted hair growth elsewhere on the body. Side effects of oral minoxidil may include swelling of the face and extremities, rapid and irregular heartbeat.

Mycosis fungoides is the most common form of a type of cancer called cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas occur when certain immune cells, called T cells, become cancerous; these cancers affect the skin, causing different types of skin lesions.
The skin cells themselves are not cancerous. Mycosis fungoides usually occurs in adults over age 50, although affected children have been identified. Mycosis fungoides progresses slowly through several stageswith the condition progress through all stages. Most affected individuals initially develop skin lesions called patches, which are flat, scaly, pink or red areas on the skin that can be itchy. Cancerous T cells, which cause the formation of patches, are found in these lesions.

Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, promotes the reparative response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue using stem cells or their derivatives. Stem cells have the power to go to damaged areas and regenerate new cells and tissues by performing a repair and a renewal process, restoring functionality.
Stem cell therapy which involves replenishment of the lost stem cells. Stem Cell Therapy is a ground breaking treatment for hair re-growth. The stem cells encourage new hair growth within 3 to 4 months of therapy. Unlike other hair fall treatment. The follicle of hair include stem cells in the center of the follicle and these cells make sure a constant supply of cells for the fast development of hair cells. These stem cells are gradually lost which leads to baldness
