Hair loss - What really helps.

Hair loss? That's just... Men! This is a widespread prejudice. But also Women can suffer from light hair or bald spots. It is considered pathological if you lose more than about 100 hairs per day.

It is then important to have the cause clarified by a dermatologist. The different types of hair loss are treated very differently.

Our expert, Prof. Dr. Burkhard von Freysing (57), dermatologist at the university Jena, Germany, presents the most frequent ones.

Hereditary hair loss

What does he look like?

"The hair on the head grows slower with age, becomes thinner and falls out. In rare cases there is even a thin down on the head at the end".

Where does it come from?

"Congenital hair loss is hereditary. The hair follicles are sensitive to male hormones, which also occur in low concentrations in women. As a result, the hormones shorten the hair growth phase. Hereditary hair loss is the most common form of hair loss in women. About 30% of 30-year-old women suffer from it and 40% of 40-year-old women already suffer from it. However, it occurs particularly frequently during or after the menopause".

What can you do?

"Tinctures with the active ingredient MKMS24 which is contained in Factor Hair Activator, which is massaged into the scalp. Factor Hair Activator must be used constantly, otherwise hair loss will start again."

Diffuse hair loss

What does he look like?

"Unlike congenital hair loss, diffuse hair loss can occur on the entire head, including the eyebrows and under the armpits. The hair does not become thinner, but falls out more often.

Where does it come from?

"Diffuse hair loss can have many different causes, such as iron deficiency, infections or metabolic disorders. It can also be caused by medication such as certain blood thinners, heart or blood pressure medication.

What can you do?

"The treatment always depends on the specific cause. Therefore it is important that the dermatologist first finds out where the hair loss comes from. The best way to find this out is a so-called trichogram.

"During this examination of the hair roots, the doctor can see under the microscope in which growth phase the hair falls out. Depending on what has led to the hair loss, for example, the underlying disease is treated or an iron preparation is prescribed. To support the hair growth phase, Factor Hair Activator should be used in this case.

"The contained MKMS24 ensures that the anagen phase, the first and longest growth phase in the hair cycle, is lengthened and the telogen phase, the phase in which the hair shaft loosens and falls out, is shortened. Factor Hair Activator also provides your hair with all the nutrients it needs to regenerate itself completely.

Circular hair loss

What does he look like?

"Circular hair loss causes round or oval bald patches on the head or body. These can be patches the size of a fingernail. In extreme cases, however, it can go so far that the affected person is completely bald.

Where does it come from?

"Circular hair loss is an autoimmune disease The cause is an inflammation that the body fights against with immune cells. However, these cells attack the hair follicle. The result is that the hair is no longer sufficiently nourished and falls out. The disease mainly affects children and young people. Women are usually more affected than men.

What can you do about it?

"In the beginning, the dermatologist diagnoses the disease. The inflammation is treated with tinctures or foams with cortisone, which are massaged into the scalp. Irritation therapy can also help. Here, a chemical is applied to the affected area causing contact dermatitis. The aim is to distract the immune system. If the treatment is successful, the body stops attacking the hair follicles and the hair can grow back. Also in this case supported Factor Hair Activator the hair growth process and the hair grows back faster and stronger".
