Hair Loss in Men: the Why’s and the How’s

You’re losing your hair and you don’t know how to save it. All the wrong people are trying to diagnose you and telling you what to do and what not do. Yes, there are ways to get your natural hair back. All hope is not lost yet. But first, you need to understand what type of hair fall, its’ causes you have and then go on to treat it.

All men experience hair fall, receding hairlines and balding and nobody is a fan. Before trying to treat your hair problem you have to understand the ‘root’ problem - like literally! Talk to a hair specialist to understand your hair and hair fall pattern. In-house hair specialists at Kaya do a step-by-step scalp diagnosis to understand the type and causes of your hair fall and then recommend the most effective solution and treatment for your hair problems.

Each strand of your hair goes through a three-phase cycle - Anagen which is the active growth stage, Catagen phase - your hair enters the transitional phase, and finally the Telogen Phase when the strand leaves the follicle and falls off. After which the follicle is inactive for three months and then the cycle repeats itself again. Stressed lifestyle, hereditary factors, hormonal imbalances, exposure to harmful chemicals and pollution are some reasons why you could be experiencing hair fall. There are three major types of hair fall and it's important to diagnose the type and cause of hair fall before getting into any treatment.

  1. Male Pattern Baldness - Androgenetic Alopecia
    Symptoms of male pattern baldness present itself with hair thinning on the crown area and receding hairlines. Sadly, this type of hair fall is in your DNA and it is something you have to face eventually. You will notice that your hairline slowly moves backward forming an ‘M shape’ in your crown and then the hair at the back of the head gets finer, shorter, and thinner eventually forming a U-shape. It forms a U shape because the hair in the sides of the head is not affected by the male hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone) that causes hair follicles to shrink, eventually becoming bald.

  2. Diffused Shedding - Telogen Effluvium 
    Diffused hair shedding occurs when hair follicles throughout the scalp enter the Telogen Phase early and hair continues to fall out for 3-6 months. The cause for this type of hair fall can be hormonal imbalances which is why it can be very unpredictable. 

  1. Spot Baldness or Bald Patches - Alopecia Areata 
    Alopecia Areata is considered an autoimmune condition because in this type of hair fall your immune system attacks your hair follicles which leads to hair loss. You may see round bald patches on your head when you have this condition. 

Treat your Hair Fall

Once you’ve understood the cause and type of hair fall you’re experiencing, it can be treated with either cream, laser treatments, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or hair regrowth by Hair Transplant Treatment. You can talk to the dermatologists at Kaya Clinic and understand more about the type of hair fall you’re experiencing and the causes behind it. The experts at Kaya will also recommend the best products and treatments for your condition to boost hair regrowth and get your hair back. Hair transplants are considered one of the most effective methods of hair regrowth because in this method hair follicles from another part of your scalp, generally the sides and back of your head, are harvested and transplanted on the balding area of your scalp. The transplanted hair then grows normally and would take a few months to grow back. Kaya’s dermatologists suggest a hair transplant method called Follicular Unit Extraction for Hair Transplant coupled with other hair regrowth solutions to give you a completely natural look.

Now you don’t have to live with har fall, receding hairline or balding anymore. You have a problem and Kaya has a solution. It’s important to get your hair fall problem correctly diagnosed with an expert. So head to your nearest Kaya clinic and reclaim your natural hair back!

Here’s What You Must Know Before You Get A Hair Transplant

Hair loss is a problem that affects us mentally more than it does physically. We love our hair and hate to see it go. There’s nothing wrong in being attached to our hair. While there are remedies to reverse hair loss and make it grow again, sometimes the loss is permanent. Fret not, for with advancement in science and technology, it is possible to regrow hair. Replant it and regrow it.

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure for treating hair loss and baldness, wherein hair follicles or a strip of hair is removed from one part of the head where there are hair growth and no baldness and is transplanted into the balding part of the head. Once the transplantation is done, hair growth from the newly transplanted hair follicles starts in a few months. This new hair has permanent roots and hence will never fall completely.

Kaya Hair Care is a well-known choice for safe and successful hair transplantation. A Kaya hair transplant review mentions how Kaya Clinic is a sought after destination for hair transplant not just in India but also in the Middle East.

There are two ways of carrying out a hair transplant. One is the Follicular Unit Extraction. In this hair transplant method, 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. This process is repeated until enough follicular units have been harvested for the planned hair restoration.

The second method is Follicular Unit Transplantation. In this method, hair is transplanted in the balding or hair thinning areas by removing a strip of hair from the back or the side of the head where there’s no balding and hair follicles are strong.

Follicular Unit Extraction for a hair transplant is better than the follicular unit transplantation method because the extraction method allows the production of high-quality grafts of follicle units with minimal pain and invasion. This is why Kaya offers the Follicular Unit Extraction method of hair transplantation for regrowth of hair.

Kaya Hair Transplant

Hair transplantation is a safe procedure and the incisions made for extraction and transplantation are very small. Hence, the wounds heal in over a week’s time. The benefits of a hair transplant are permanent. Hair regrowth by hair transplant is normal and constant. Once the procedure is done, the newly planted grafts will be saline washed for a few days. A mild diluted shampoo will be used to gently wash the hair. Initially, the grafts will fall out and will be followed by growth of hair from the new follicles.  The new growth of hair starts after a few months after the surgery. The hair grows fully and thickly. This growth is permanent and will not face permanent hair fall.

Hair grown via the hair transplant method looks natural and the same as your old hair. The entire procedure takes close to 8 hours to finish and may be done in multiple sessions as the harvesting takes time. Local anesthesia is administered and hence there is no pain felt during the procedure. After the procedure, you may experience mild swelling on the scalp which goes away in a day or two. You will be able to function normally and go about your daily tasks. After growing hair through transplantation, hair colouring and hair styling can be done according to your desire. There’s no restriction on this. There will no scars, cuts or marks on your scalp after the procedure so you don’t have to get worried about getting any scalp damage.

At Kaya, before getting hair transplantation, you will go through a series of consultations with the surgeon and hair doctor to understand your hair growth pattern, hair loss pattern, the number of sessions that will be required and other factors. Your age and the stage of hair loss will also be considered. Certain medications and nutritional supplements will be prescribed to you to ensure the best results for hair growth after the procedure. Please note that you may be advised to stop taking any other medication outside which may affect the results of hair transplantation. Also, consumption of alcohol and smoking is to be strictly avoided in the period before and after the procedure as it may harm the grafting outcomes.  Do not colour your hair or cut it before the surgery. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo and do not apply any other products(gel, serum) on it. Massaging the scalp with a nourishing oil may help with hair growth after the procedure.

Kaya hair transplant cost is a major deciding factor in choosing hair transplantation at this popular destination. It is extremely reasonable and amongst the lowest in the country, given the reputation and stellar services being offered. Kaya has ensured that its hair transplantation services can be availed by those who are really keen on reversing their hair loss situation.

For those of you who really want to grow back your hair, healthy and strong, wait no more. Kaya is the place for the best care for your hair. You can take a safe and informed decision for your hair with support from an expert team of surgeons, dermatologists, and doctors.

My Foot!

Your feet do a lot for you. They make you walk and run and carry your weight all day. But what do you do for your feet? While physical exercise is essential to be healthy and fit, taking care of the skin is just as important. The feet take a lot of pressure and impact all day throughout the year. They are also heavily exposed to the external environment. Hence they need that extra care and protection to feel comfortable. Come winter and the problem of dry skin extends to all parts of our body, from the head to our elbows, knees, and toes. Our feet too face this problem and need attention early on to check it.

Taking Care of Your Feet

The sight of dry skin on our feet and cracked heels is an unpleasant one and feels extremely uncomfortable too. We wish we could do something and make it all go away immediately. While there is no quick fix to get long-lasting health benefits, it’s never too late to start taking care of your feet. Here are some essential tips for your feet as part of your winter body care regime:
-          Wear comfortable footwear and socks. Ensure that the socks you wear don’t stay damp when you sweat. Choose a dry-fit material.

-          Invest in some good bath salts. Add these to the hot water you soak your feet in. It cleanses and rejuvenates the feet.
-          Scrub the skin around the heels to soften them and reduce the calluses. Exfoliate between the toes to cleanse them.
-          Smooth the skin with a pumice stone. Polishing with pumice stone is a well-known method for keeping feet soft, clean and healthy.
-          Do remember to moisturize your feet after a bath or soaking your feet in bath salts. Something as simple as applying petroleum jelly or coconut oil goes a long way in protecting your skin from the harsh winter. If possible, do invest in a good foot care cream and apply it regularly all around the heels and soles of your feet.

Adult acne can be especially more difficult for those people who haven’t experienced bad acne-breakouts as teenagers and are new to this acne-fighting game. Acne breakouts and leftover acne marks can be easily solved with treatments and a good skincare routine.

Kaya - Acne treatment

Adult Acne and how to take care of them

Embarrassing acne-breakouts during teenage years is not everything that life had in store for you. To make it worse life slaps you with adult-acne right on your face! And for those experiencing acne breakouts way into their adulthood after having a clear skin pretty much their entire life - welcome to adulthood! Yes, managing your acne is a part of adulting.

Adult Acne or as fancy people call it - Acne Vulgaris is a serious condition of acne and mostly pops up in those areas where your sebaceous glands are having a house party - i.e., a lot of them crowded in the same area. Hormonal imbalances can also be a reason for your acne’s sudden visit - stress, anxiety, periods, pregnancy, taking contraceptives or when stopping contraceptives, and menopause can all gift you with acne-breakouts. Other than this, you may have your ancestry to blame as adult-onset acne can also be written in your genes. Improper use or overuse of skin care products and heavy cosmetics can also be also lead to acne breakouts.

It's difficult to pinpoint what can be the real reason for your breakouts but talking to a dermatologist might set you in the right direction. At Kaya’s, you can get an in-depth analysis of your skin and find out who’s the culprit. Based on your skin analysis, dermatologists at Kaya Clinic will also advise you about the right products for your skin and suggest suitable dietary changes. Following a simple skin-care regimen regularly can take you far in your quest of achieving flawless, smooth skin. Kaya’s Advanced Acne Care Kit has all the products you need for the perfect skin-care routine. A simple skincare routine involves cleansing, toning, and moisturizing.

Cleanse: Use the Purifying Cleanser to clean away all the dirt and grime. Enriched with Salicylic Acid, it fights acne and keeps them away!

Tone: A toner helps your skin regain its pH balance. Kaya’s Purifying Toner is alcohol-free and enriched with Mandelic Acid. This toner soothes your skin and tightens your pores and cleans away any impurities that your cleanser may have left behind.

Like dealing with a bad acne-breakout wasn’t bad enough, acne scarring is a constant reminder of how bad your acne can get. Acne-scars and pimple marks dull your skin and take away your skin’s natural glow. These marks and scars are stubborn and don’t go away easily. One solution to this problem is here and that’s Chemical Peeling Treatment. Chemical peels use mild chemical solutions to remove the dead skin cells, giving way to the fresh, smooth skin that is hiding underneath. This method of acne treatment deeply exfoliates your skin and leaves you with younger looking skin after the treatment.

There are different chemical peels that are available. Talking to a dermatologist will help you understand which chemical peel will suit your skin best. Based on your skin analysis, Kaya’s in-house dermatologists will customize the best chemical peel treatment according to your skin’s requirements.

A Superficial peel gently exfoliates your skin using a mild acid - Alpha-hydroxyl. This acid helps in the breakdown of dead skin cells on the top layer of the skin. It treats rough skin, and discoloration and leaves you with a fresh and younger looking skin.

A Medium Peel reaches the outer layer as well as the middle layers of your skin to remove the damaged cells from within. The Glycolic Acid in this peel helps restore an even-toned skin complexion and reduce age spots, pimple scars, and any other skin discoloration.

A Deep Peel uses Trichloroacetic Acid to reach the middle layers of your skin and reduce deep acne and pimple scars. This treatment for acne scars is said to be very effective as it shows dramatic improvement in the appearance of your skin.

Depending on your skin type and severity of skin damage, a trained professional may advise any of these peels. Kaya’s Intense Clarity Peel treatment for acne scars developed by the in-house dermatologists is suitable for all skin types. With its depigmentation and natural skin lightening properties, this acne treatment gently exfoliates your skin and reduces dark spots and uneven skin tones. The Intense Clarity Peel removes the dull skin and gives way to a new radiant skin.

After a chemical peel treatment, it is important that you continue taking good care of your skin by practicing a healthy skin care routine every day. Dermatologists at Kaya’s will recommend the best products for your skin. Kaya’s Advanced Acne Care Kit is the to-go product for people with acne problems. The kit consists of Purifying Cleanser, Purifying Toner, Purifying Spot Corrector and Purifying Nourisher all of which together will help you keep acne far, far away from your skin!
