For both men and women, hair loss may be a humiliating experience. You’re probably seeking solutions to hide your thinning hair on top of your head or patches of hair falling out. You may not, however, be required to. Instead, a Hair Doctor can precisely evaluate your hair loss and make treatment recommendations so you can regain your self-confidence.

If you’re seeking someone to help you with your hair loss, it’s critical to have all the data to obtain the most acceptable Hair Loss Treatment and Hair Transplant Treatment possible. Alopecia areata, various autoimmune illnesses, anaemia, thyroid problems, traction, and baldness are only a few ailments that can cause hair loss.

Who is a Hair Doctor?

When it comes to getting treatment for your hair loss, you may be unsure who to approach first and who specialises in hair loss issues and remedies. Your hairdresser is an initial place to start if you have a long-standing connection with them and they are acquainted with your hair and lifestyle. However they are not the right qualified specialists you should rely strongly on since they have limited cosmetic products to help sort your honest concerns and queries.

Aside from that, you should be aware that two more Hair Doctors could be the right people who may assist you with your hair loss queries and its related answers: a dermatologist and a trichologist. While both experts are educated to recognize hair and scalp issues, only a board-certified dermatologist or a trichologist can do a scalp biopsy, treat skin cancer, prescribe drugs, draw blood, and perform surgery. For surgical interventions you can further seek help from qualified plastic surgeons since a trichologist or a dermatologist does not have the same level of exposure as a plastic surgeon when it comes to aesthetics and hair.

Hair Specialist Doctors are classified into two types:


Dermatologists get intensive training to diagnose and treat more than 3,000 skin, hair, and nail problems, including acne, eczema, and skin cancer. Some dermatologists are board-certified, which means they completed a minimum three-year residency in dermatology following medical school and passed their relevant board test. They often offer Rogaine/minoxidil and topical medications for hair loss and scalp concerns. They are only equipped to try use of basic medications for your issues pertaining to hair.


A trichologist is a specialist in human hair, from making it look its best to treating hair and scalp disorders. A dermatologist is a physician who has the skills in skin, hair, and nails and possesses the knowledge and experience to do a thorough examination and any required tests to provide an accurate diagnosis.

Benefits of Seeing Specialist Doctors for Hair Loss

Visiting a doctor for hair loss may appear unnecessary today since over-the-counter hair loss treatments such as minoxidil are available. However, there are still many reasons to contact a hair loss specialist if you’re starting to see the very first signs of male pattern baldness. One of the first advantages of visiting a hair loss doctor is that they can help you figure out your hair loss.

As previously mentioned, hair loss may be caused by various factors. For example, if you work long hours in a stressful environment, you may be suffering telogen effluvium hair loss due to prolonged, severe stress. Many conditions can contribute to hair loss, and hair loss can be passed down through generations. People who have a family history of hair loss, for example, are more likely to develop male pattern baldness.

Hair loss doctors are specialists in determining the causes of hair loss, so they can tell you why you’re losing hair and what you can do to treat it properly. A hair loss specialist may also inform you about different treatments’ risks and side effects, such as medications and cosmetic surgery.

If you have hair loss, you should have diagnostic testing and follow up with your doctor if required. For both women and men, a few diagnostic tests may be used to determine the actual cause of hair loss. It usually occurs as a sign of another ailment in the body.

Hormone Analysis

You may be asked to go for certain tests for several hormones if you’re experiencing severe hair loss and nothing is working out. Prolactin, Testosterone, DHEA, Luteinizing Hormone, and Follicular Stimulating Hormone are the hormones involved that could be considered to be involved.

Thyroid Function Test

T3, T4, and TSH are three more crucial tests you might have to consider. These hormones’ levels should be checked.

Serum Ferritin, Serum Iron

These tests may assist you in determining the precise amounts of blood iron and serum ferritin. In addition, any of the abnormalities mentioned above may cause hair loss.

CBC (complete blood count) test

This test provides you with your body’s total blood count results.


If you are infected with Syphilis, you may have hair loss. In the event of a diagnosis, the VDL test may be crucial.

Hair Pulling

This is a physical examination that the doctor does on you. For example, hair fall is diagnosed when more than three hairs come out when the doctor pulls a tiny bit of hair.

Scalp biopsies

After removing a little portion of your scalp from your head, it is inspected under a microscope. Finding out why you’re losing hair is important.

Laser Treatment

Laser Treatment is supposed to lessen the inflammation in follicles that prevents them from regrowing. When treating male pattern hair loss, low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is safe and effective.


Hair specialists have authorised two drugs for treating male pattern baldness:


Rogaine is sold as a liquid or a foam over-the-counter (OTC). It is generally advised by hair specialists to apply it to the scalp twice a day to increase hair development and prevent hair loss.


Finasteride is a prescription drug used to treat hair (Propecia, Proscar). Finasteride is a daily tablet.

Hair transplants

Hair transplants are a standard procedure. Follicular unit transplantation and follicular unit extraction are the most common hair transplant methods.

Remember that both hair transplant treatments are considered surgeries, which may be costly and unpleasant.

Reasons you Need a Hair Specialist Doctor.

Hair loss may be caused by dietary deficiencies, genetics, hormone imbalances, and physiological or psychological stress. It’s impossible to cure hair loss until you know what’s causing it. Your hair and scalp will be evaluated for numerous factors. You will ask questions about your lifestyle, family, nutrition, and medical history when you see a Hair Doctor.

Various critical blood tests may be required to understand the hair and scalp. The Hair Doctor may choose to use different methodologies such as FCT, capillaroscopy, Trichogramma, densitometry, sebum analysis, hair pull test, and other procedures and technology to identify hair problems. These tests, coupled with the responses to the previous questions, aids a Hair Loss Doctor in fully comprehending your situation and guiding you towards the best remedies for your hair issues.

According to research, hair loss affects around 40% of women by 50. Some causes of transient hair loss will go away on their own or with minor lifestyle modifications, and others may react favourably to regrowth therapy. Before beginning any treatment, consult with your dermatologist to determine the best course of action.


Hair loss can be caused by a bad diet, stress, vitamin deficiency, thyroid disorders, pregnancy, chemotherapy, or getting older. These illnesses are not life-threatening and can be readily treated by taking medications, quitting specific drugs, and altering your lifestyle. Hair frequently regrows.

Your hair may not regrow normally if your hair loss is caused by genetics or medical issues. This might be upsetting because hair loss can spoil your entire look. However, you may choose a handful of hair loss treatments with your Hair Loss Doctor to ease your situation, depending on your general physical health, the pattern and degree of hair loss, and the Hair doctor’s recommendations.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
