Medications That Can Cause Hair Loss

Medications That Can Cause Hair Loss

If you’ve ever seen a television ad for a new drug or game-changing medication, you know that about half the ad’s time is taken up by someone reading a seemingly endless list of potential side effects. That’s the way it is for almost any medication – all the good they do also comes with some bad. For many vital and life-sustaining drugs and treatments, one of those side effects can be hair loss.

Drug-induced hair loss can be just as troubling as pattern baldness or any other type of hair loss. The good news, however, is that most hair loss caused by medication is temporary, with hair growing back after you stop taking the drug.

What’s Behind Drug-Induced Hair Loss?

Medications can cause hair loss by interfering with hair’s normal growth cycle. Hair grows during the anagen phase, which usually lasts between two to seven years. Hair then rests during the telogen phase, which is about three months long. At the end of each telogen phase, hair falls out and is quickly replaced by new hair.

Medications can disrupt one or both of these cycles. Telogen effluvium,  the most common form of medication-related hair loss, usually appears two to four months after starting a drug. Telogen effluvium causes hair follicles to go into their resting phase and fall out earlier than they should. People with telogen effluvium usually shed between 30 percent to 70 percent more hairs than the typical 100 and 150 hairs per day.

Drug-induced hair loss that occurs during the anagen phase of the hair cycle is called anagen effluvium. This condition prevents the matrix cells, which produce new hairs, from dividing as they usually would. This type of hair loss usually occurs within a few days to weeks after taking a medication and is a common phenomenon for patients taking chemotherapy drugs for cancer treatment.

What Medications Are Associated With Hair Loss?

In addition to chemotherapy medications, plenty of other common prescription drugs list hair loss as a potential side effect, including:

  • Acne medications containing vitamin A (retinoids)
  • Antibiotics and antifungal medications
  • Steroids
  • Thyroid medications
  • Weight loss drugs
  • Birth control pills
  • Anticlotting drugs
  • Mood stabilizers
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Cholesterol-lowering drugs
  • Antidepressants
  • Drugs that suppress the immune system
  • Drugs that treat breast cancer and other cancers
  • Epilepsy drugs (anticonvulsants)
  • High blood pressure medications (anti-hypertensives), such as beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, and diuretics
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Parkinson’s disease drugs

As noted, medication-related hair loss is almost always reversible. Talk to your doctor about any concerns you have about your prescription, and never discontinue a medication because of hair loss without first discussing it with your physician.

Another Reason to Stop Smoking: Hair Loss

Another Reason to Stop Smoking: Hair Loss

You don’t need us to tell you how bad smoking is for your health. You already know that it causes lung cancer, heart disease, and a whole range of other serious ailments. But even if the risk of such chronic health problems isn’t enough to convince you to quit, perhaps the knowledge that smoking can contribute to hair loss will do the trick.

Research has established a significant connection between the harmful chemicals and other materials in cigarette smoke and hair loss in men and women. Here are some of the ways that smoking can kill your otherwise healthy head of hair.

Damaged Hair Follicles

Tobacco smoke contains a grabbag full of substances that are just awful for the human body, including nicotine, caffeine, acetone, aluminum, ammonia, arsenic, benzene, butane, cadmium, tellurium, carbon monoxide, goroside, and cyanide. Of these, nicotine is the biggest villain in terms of hair loss, as it damages hair follicles, making them weaker and more prone to falling out.

Reduced Blood Flow

Smoking limits the flow of blood in your body and reduces the amount of essential nutrients that make their way to your hair follicles. Without an adequate supply of those nutrients, your follicles will grow weak instead of just growing, and will ultimately fall out.  

Increased DHT Levels

DHT is an androgen that helps to give men male traits. Typically, due to genetics or other hormonal changes, hair follicles develop a sensitivity to DHT and begin to miniaturize. As a result, the hair growth cycle is shortened, and eventually, new hair stops growing. As such, individuals with higher DHT levels may be more prone to hair loss. Since cigarettes increase the production of DHT, smoking can make hair loss and a receding hairline more likely.

Increased Oil Secretion

The nicotine in tobacco can accelerate the body’s secretion of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that promotes the production of adrenaline. In turn, the increase in adrenaline can cause more oil to be secreted on the scalp. Too much oil can block hair follicles’ ability to get the nutrients they need and make them more prone to falling out.

Postpartum Hair Loss Is An Unwelcome, But Very Common, Phenomenon

Being a new mom isn’t easy. The dramatic changes in responsibilities and routines, chronic sleep deprivation, and other new challenges can be overwhelming. However, for many women, the weeks and months after giving birth also come with another unwanted and unexpected sight: hair loss. 

Recently, a former contestant on The Bachelor and Married At First Sight, Jamie Otis, shared her experiences and struggles with postpartum hair loss. Also called postpartum alopecia – the phenomenon affects up to 90 percent of new mothers who have some degree of hair loss three to five months after giving birth. For many women like Otis, the hair loss includes excessive shedding, even hair falling out in clumps, during that time. The good news for moms is that this hair loss is almost always temporary and hair growth returns to normal in plenty of time for the child’s first birthday party.

Hormonal Whiplash

Pregnancy causes wild fluctuations in hormones, as every mom knows. But these hormonal upheavals don’t end after delivery. The months that follow childbirth also see dramatic changes in hormone levels as the body works its way back to its normal state. This hormonal whiplash can take a toll on hair as well.  

Many women notice that their hair seems thicker and fuller during pregnancy than it did beforehand. This is because of elevated estrogen levels that increase the percentage of hairs in the growth cycle, while simultaneously freezing hair that is in the resting phase of hair growth. After pregnancy, estrogen levels fall dramatically, and all the hair that was growing so impressively starts to fall out. While we all shed hair regularly, at a rate of around 80 hairs per day, the extent of postpartum shedding can raise that number to closer to 400 hairs a day.

While you may not be able to stop postpartum shedding, changing up your hairstyle and keeping control of your stress levels can help you ride out this temporary condition.  Just as life slowly returns to a new normal as the months go by after having a baby, so too will your hair.

Psychological Impact Of Hair Loss On Men and Women

Psychological Impact Of Hair Loss On Men and Women

There are plenty of visual signs of hair loss: a receding hairline, hair left in a brush, in the drain, on your pillow, a growing bald spot on the crown of your head. But not all of the impact of hair loss can be seen in the mirror. Losing your hair can have devastating emotional and psychological side effects.

While a full head of hair may no longer be necessary for our physical health and survival as it was for our ancient ancestors, it retains a symbolic power in our society and in cultures around the world. Hair conveys strength and well-being, while the lack of it is often perceived, unfairly, as a sign of early aging and less desirable qualities.

People experiencing hair loss often internalize these inaccurate and unjust perceptions, with a corresponding reduction in self-esteem and heightened anxiety over their “declining” appearance. In more extreme cases, people who are losing their hair can develop body dysmorphic disorder, suffer from ongoing depression, and endure a diminished quality of life. Some folks may be so embarrassed by their hair loss that they isolate themselves and avoid social situations, further accelerating an unnecessary spiral of loneliness and shame.

Hair Loss Is Especially Hard On Women

The psychological costs of hair loss take a toll on men and women alike. Unquestionably, however, hair loss can be even more devastating for females. While a bald man or one with a receding hairline may not raise an eyebrow, the same can’t be said for women even though they account for about 40 percent of all hair loss cases. Society’s expectations about female appearance and attractiveness have made hair loss a particularly traumatic condition for women, leading to a host of emotional issues.

These issues manifest themselves in relationships, careers, and physical health. Hair loss can take its toll through: 

  • Increased stress, grief, or unease during routine activities
  • Avoidance of new romantic relationships or withdrawal in existing ones
  • Overwhelming feelings of humiliation and embarrassment or humiliation
  • Jealousy or envy about those who don’t experience hair loss
  • Career-related obstacles, particularly for individuals in broadcasting or other appearance-focused positions
  • Shutting off from friends or family and missing out on important life events for fear of highlighting hair loss symptoms

Given the foregoing, vanity is not the reason that so many people seek help with their hair loss issues. Rather, individuals with hair loss who pursue hair restoration treatments are making a bold and courageous step to improve their quality of life and care for their own emotional and mental health.

Hair Loss Treatments in 2020

No one likes to break promises. But every year, as the calendar turns from December to January, all of us make promises to ourselves – New Year’s resolutions – that we tend to break in a matter of weeks or months (or days!)

If you are and have been experiencing hair loss, you may have had one or more New Year’s Days where you woke up and said: “This is the year I’m going to do something about it!” If that’s you, and you still haven’t done anything about your hair loss, make 2020 different. By making one phone call to the Miami Hair & Skin Institute today, you can put yourself on track for a fuller, more youthful head of hair and increased self-confidence this year.

We offer several surgical and non-surgical treatment options for men and women living with every type and degree of hair loss issues. Our world-renowned hair restoration experts have the experience and insights to choose the treatment option best suited to your goals.

Here are just a few of the effective, safe, and proven 2020 hair restoration treatments we offer at the Miami Hair & Skin Institute:

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

A popular non-invasive hair loss treatment, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) involves the use of specialized caps and combs which direct pulses of energy into inactive hair follicles. These pulses stimulate the follicles back into a phase of regrowth by promoting increased circulation and cellular respiration.

Among the LLLT options we offer is the Capillus272 laser cap. This FDA-approved device contains 272 professional-strength lasers that make it the most powerful at-home tool for treating hair loss. The cap is indistinguishable from any other baseball cap, so you can go about your life while simultaneously strengthening your hair follicles and turning the tide against hair loss.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

An increasing body of research has shown the effectiveness (and safety) of an approach to hair restoration that utilizes the body’s own natural growth and healing factors to stimulate the regrowth of hair. Platelet-rich plasma therapy takes the body’s natural processes and turbocharges them. In this therapy, we take a blood sample from the patient and place it in a centrifuge where the platelets are separated from other elements of the blood. We then inject the PRP into the treatment area, stimulating the repair and healing that the body is already working on. 

At the 2019 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology, the author of a comprehensive study about the use of PRP wrote that “With consensus forming around treatment protocols, studies are indicating that PRP is a safe, effective hair loss treatment that has the potential to greatly improve the quality of life of millions of people.” We agree. 

Stem Cell Therapy

Full heads of hair are the result of hair follicles which are continually regenerating, due in part to the presence of stem cells. But when those stem cells shrink and deteriorate as we age, hair stops renewing and ultimately falls out. That’s why reintroducing an individual’s own stem cells back to the follicles has the potential to create a nourishing environment which may foster regrowth and fight the battle against hair loss

Using a liposuction tool, we take fat cells from the belly, flanks, or love handles and extract the stem cells that can foster hair growth. We then inject this concentrated stem cell sample onto the scalp. The procedure is fast and minimally invasive.

Hair Restoration Drugs

Hair loss medications such as Rogaine® (Minoxidil) and Propecia are popular and proven ways to treat pattern hair loss without surgery. Both drugs, for the right patients, can stop or slow down hair loss and stimulate new hair growth in many patioent.

Hair Transplant Surgery

Of course, the Miami Hair & Skin Institute is a world leader in advanced hair transplant surgery. Our surgeons have been instrumental in the development of the most effective and widely used techniques, and have used their skills, experience, and artistry to perform successful procedures on thousands of men.

Top 4 Reasons Teenagers Experience Hair Loss

Top 4 Reasons Teenagers Experience Hair Loss

Being a teenager isn’t easy, but it can be even more challenging for a teen struggling with hair loss issues. Feeling different, being teased, bullied, or picked on because of hair loss can be devastating and disruptive for a teenager.

It is estimated that around three percent of all pediatrician visits annually involve a hair loss problem. Teenagers, as well as young children, can experience the thinning, balding, or shedding which we usually associate with pattern baldness in adults.

There are many reasons a teenager could be losing hair, and parents should always consult with a physician if their teen is experiencing excessive shedding or other visible signs of hair loss to determine the underlying cause.

Four of the most common causes of hair loss in teens include:

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata is a specific type of baldness that occurs in concentrated, rounded areas on the scalp or elsewhere on the body. At times, Alopecia Areata may appear in several locations at once, such as on the crown of the head, the sides of the head, and on the arms. Between one to two percent of Americans experience Alopecia Areata, including teenagers.

Hairstyle and Product Issues

Teens can spend a lot of time – and use a ton of gel, mousse, hairspray, and other products – styling their hair. All of the chemicals contained in styling products can build up and damage hair follicles if a teen does a poor job washing their hair.

Similarly, many hairstyles popular among teens involve an unnatural and excessive amount of tension to their hair over an extended period. This can lead to a condition called traction alopecia. For example, wearing unnecessarily tight ponytails, pigtails, or braids for long stretches of time can damage follicles and cause hair to fall out.

Unconscious Hair Pulling and Plucking

Another behavioral cause of teenage hair loss, albeit one with a psychological component, is Trichotillomania. This disorder involves a teen pulling their hair until they uproot the follicles, often leaving large areas of thinning hair, damaged follicles, or total baldness. The best course of treatment for this condition is to consult a mental health professional or behavioral therapist.

Poor Diet or Eating Disorder

If a teen is undernourished or has an unhealthy diet, their body will have a difficult time getting the macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals needed to maintain healthy hair follicles. Sometimes, this can be a simple matter of eating healthier food, but teens struggling with eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia face more significant challenges to their health and well-being. While eating well may not be enough to reverse pattern baldness, eating foods for healthy hair can certainly help to improve the health and longevity of existing hair.

Latest Research in Stem Cell Treatments for Baldness

Latest Research in Stem Cell Treatments for Baldness

The word “breakthrough” is thrown around a lot when scientific or medical research makes a significant advancement. It implies a sudden and dramatic game-changer, a cure for an illness or other health problems. But the road from a “breakthrough” to an actual treatment is a long one, and it doesn’t always result in a safe and effective solution. That said, recent research is adding more support for the already promising use of stem cells to treat baldness and hair loss.

As reported in Healthline, the 2019 annual meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research included the presentation of research that appeared to grow life-like hair in mice that were hairless because of genetic problems. The researchers combined different skin and hair cells from mice and humans and used the same material as dissolvable stitches to create a “scaffold” to control the direction the hair grew into the skin. The result was hair growth in mice that were genetically programmed to be bald.

The human cells used in the research were human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), specifically dermal papilla cells, which are found inside hair follicles and control hair growth, thickness, and length.

This is just the latest development in an ongoing effort to leverage the power of stem cells to treat a range of conditions, including hair loss. Stem cells are the multi-talented repairmen of our bodies, maintaining and restoring healthy functioning everywhere, fixing the body by dividing and replacing damaged tissues.

Now new stem cell research, like the 2019 study, and more refined techniques are showing that reintroducing an individual’s own stem cell back into hair follicles can create a nourishing environment that may foster regrowth and fight the battle against hair loss.

Research has found that stem cell hair transplants may be an effective way of treating hair loss conditions such as:

  • male androgenetic alopecia
  • androgenetic alopecia
  • cicatricial alopecia

At the Miami Hair & Skin Institute, lead surgeons Drs. Rose and Nusbaum have developed a minimally invasive, safe, and comprehensive method of performing stem cell therapy for hair loss. Many patients are excited to learn our stem cell therapy treatments can be utilized in conjunction with hair transplant surgery, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, topical treatments (like Rogaine®), and laser hair therapy to maximize results. 

To consult with Dr. Bernard Nusbaum and Dr. Paul Rose about whether Miami stem cell hair therapies may be a good option for your hair loss issues, please call our office at 305-925-0222 or contact us online to book your evaluation and consultation.  

Hair Loss Breakthrough with 3D Printing Technology

Hair Loss Breakthrough with 3D Printing Technology

One of the limitations inherent in current hair transplant surgery is the need for sufficient donor hairs. Many individuals wanting to address their hair loss through a transplant simply don’t have the needed amount of healthy hair follicles available to be extracted and moved to thinning or bald areas of their scalp. But scientists at Columbia University may have found a solution to that problem.

As recently reported in the Daily Beast, 3-D printing technology may make it possible in the not-too-distant future to grow donor hair follicles in a dish that doctors can then transplant into a patient. As Dr. Angela Christiano, the lead researcher at Columbia, put it, “We can basically create a hair farm.”

Using a 3-D printer, Christiano’s team created a mold filled with extremely tiny wells and put neonatal skin cells into those wells. They then seeded hair follicles donated by volunteers into the microwells, along with growth factors to stimulate hair growth.

Three weeks later, the mold contained small yet robust hair follicles – grown entirely outside of human skin.

While no testing has been done on humans, and no hairs grown in a mold have been transplanted into a patient, the implications of this development are potentially huge. Using current transplant methods, a patient may need up to 2,000 follicles on the back of their head to have a sufficient amount for transplantation elsewhere. Using Christiano’s innovation, it may be possible to grow an adequate amount of new hair follicles in a 3-D printed mold using just a small amount of donor hair from the patient’s scalp.  

As Christiano notes, if further testing and refinement of the technology confirm the  safety and effectiveness of hair transplants using externally grown follicles, “Hair restoration surgery would no longer be limited by the number of donor hairs.”

The Miami Hair & Skin Institute: At the Forefront of Hair Restoration Advancements

At the moment, however, hair transplant surgery does require a patient to have enough hair for transplantation. At the Miami Hair & Skin Institute, we are leaders in the development and use of game-changing hair restoration methods and pride ourselves in steadfast commitment to ensuring that the procedures we perform and technology we use are safe, proven, and effective. We will continue to monitor hair restoration innovations like 3-D printing and report on any new advancements that may benefit our patients.

The Latest Research on Phytochemicals for Hair Growth

The Latest Research on Phytochemicals for Hair Growth

There is currently a lot of hype surrounding plant-based meat substitutes like the “Impossible Burger,” but plants and the chemicals they contain are also making news for their ability to help with hair growth.

A new report suggests that “phytochemicals” – naturally occurring compounds present in all plants – can play a significant role in the treatment of hair loss. Published earlier this year in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, the report compiled almost 30 years of research on topical and oral hair loss applications containing phytochemicals.

The data that the researchers analyzed led them to conclude that “all investigated phytochemicals have well-documented pharmacological activities and pathways, which hair researchers have also identified as potential regulators of hair growth…” While the data was not conclusive as to the extent of phytochemicals’ effect on hair growth, the researchers noted that “the range of phytochemicals proposed for treating hair loss is promising and growing.”

While the report looked at an expansive range of phytochemicals, they found that caffeine, along with phenolic compounds and phytosterols, was “the preferred choices for androgenic hair loss, as evidenced by the available literature.”

At the Miami Hair & Skin Institute, we stand at the forefront of new developments in the treatment of hair loss and are continually evaluating innovative approaches to hair restoration. For example, we now offer Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy and Stem Cell Hair Growth Therapy, two treatments that leverage the latest technological advancements to strengthen existing hair and promote the growth of new follicles. We will continue to monitor research regarding the use of phytochemicals in hair loss treatment and provide updates as to any additional developments.

Most Common Causes of Hair Loss & Hair Thinning

Most Common Causes of Hair Loss and Hair Thinning

You look in the mirror and see your hairline receding farther and farther back. You notice increasing numbers of hairs in your drain or stuck in your brush. You feel bare patches on your scalp or areas where hairs are few and far between. In your frustration and disappointment, you ask yourself, “Why is this happening to me??”

That is not a rhetorical question. Rather, understanding the “why” behind your hair loss is the first step in doing something about it. At the Miami Hair & Skin Institute, we take a holistic approach to hair restoration that begins with a thorough, personalized evaluation to determine the reasons behind your thinning hair. Once we do so, we can recommend the treatment option best suited to restoring your hair to its full, youthful appearance.

If you are experiencing hair loss or hair thinning, it is likely due to one of the following causes:

Your Genes

By an overwhelming margin, pattern baldness – androgenetic alopecia – is the most common cause of hair loss in men and women. Over 95 percent of hair loss cases involve androgenetic alopecia, a hereditary hair loss condition that affects over three million Americans each year. This condition causes hair miniaturization, a phenomenon in which follicles become thinner and finer each time they progress through the hair growth cycle. Eventually, the follicles will die and fall out.

Your Immune System

Alopecia areata is a hair loss condition that involves a direct assault on your hair follicles by your own immune system and white blood cells. This attack shrinks the follicles and subsequently slows down hair growth. In turn, this leads to sudden hair loss in quarter-sized patches that can progress across the scalp rapidly and unpredictably.

More extreme versions of the condition include alopecia totalis (Complete loss of hair on the scalp) and alopecia universalis (total loss of hair on the scalp and body). Hair follicles are not destroyed by alopecia areata and can typically regrow as soon as the inflammation dwindles.

Though not as common as androgenetic alopecia, which is the culprit in the vast majority of male pattern baldness cases, alopecia areata still affects two percent of Americans or roughly 6.8 million people.

Your Hairstyle

If you apply constant tension to your hair follicles, they will eventually experience damage, weaken, and ultimately die and fall out. This is called traction alopecia.

The five primary causes of traction alopecia are:

  1. Wearing unnecessarily tight pigtails, ponytails, or braids for extended periods.
  2. Trichotillomania, a psychological disorder characterized by constant (and often unconscious) hair twisting, plucking, or pulling.
  3. Hairstyles that require hair to be tightly wound for a prolonged period.
  4. Hairpieces and weaves that must be affixed/clipped to the hair.
  5. Helmets, particularly compression-helmets like those worn while playing football, snowboarding, skiing, horseback riding, etc.

Your Lifestyle

Stress, a traumatic event, or a lack of sufficient sleep cause changes to our body chemistry that can have a range of adverse health effects, including damage to our hair follicles that can lead to thinning or hair loss. Fortunately, shock loss is almost always a temporary phenomenon.

Your Hormones

Many cases of hair loss are the result of hormone imbalances. Several hormones can impact the growth, strength, and health of our hair. The most frequent problems with hormone imbalances that can contribute to hair shedding and loss include thyroid imbalances and hormonal changes accompanying menopause and pregnancy.

No Matter The Reason Behind Your Hair Loss, The Miami Hair & Skin Institute Can Help

At the Miami Hair & Skin Institute, our world-renowned hair restoration physicians diagnose and treat hair loss cases no matter what the underlying cause.
