Covid-19 and Hair Loss

covid-19 and hair lossSince the COVID-19 pandemic reached the shores of the United States, more and more Americans are claiming to experience, where they have never before, a rapid increase in hair loss. The question has been raised in medical offices and institutions around the states, whether this could be a symptom of the virus or whether it is peripheral and unrelated? More likely than not, a spike in individuals experiencing hair loss is due to the stresses and strains of living through a pandemic, and NOT as a direct result or symptom of the virus. 

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention and other medical research facilities have not recognized hair loss as a symptom of COVID-19, yet more than 27% of 1,100 poll respondents in a coronavirus survivor online group reported hair loss. What explains the relationship between hair loss and Covid-19 then? Speaking to USA Today, Dr. Michele S. Green, a dermatologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, describes how “there’s been an influx of patients seeking treatment for hair loss during quarantine.” Simply put, it is the shock to the physical systems of the body related to high fever, imbalance of hormones and muscle fatigue that is likely causing the hair loss. 

Hair loss related to stresses put upon the body is called Telogen Effluvium, and is usually a self correcting condition, meaning it can resolve itself in 3-6 months. Once the triggers of stress, diet or hormonal imbalances are normalized, telogen effluvium can be cured.

Remedial Treatments

Still, preventative measures for managing and mitigating hair loss are always advised since hair loss is in everyone’s future. Zach from the Try Guys, a popular internet entertainment group, recently underwent a follicular unit extraction at the age of 30. His detailed expose on the transplant process and the reasons for undergoing the treatment are explained in a recent popular video here.

Although dashingly handsome and youthful by all accounts, Zach’s discomfort and unhappiness with an ever more wispy head of hair drove him to seek a strong and permanent aesthetic solution. At Modena Hair Institute in Orange County, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, we encounter patients with the same exact story every day. Whether it’s something more permanent and dramatic like an FUE hair transplant or topical hair treatment to slow balding, we examine the scalp and perform tests to determine which course of treatments will best destroy the nightmare of hair loss.

Progressive and Diffuse Hair Loss

It’s our mission here at Modena Hair Institute to provide our patients with only the highest standard of personalized care. Hair loss therapy is not a ‘one size fits all’ affair. There exist various different and distinct patterns of hair loss and an equally diverse number of potential underlying causes. Male pattern baldness and women’s hair loss manifest differently and accordingly call for different approaches to treatment. However, whatever the cause of your hair loss may be, our experienced specialists have got you covered with a wide range of surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
To better understand how different kinds of hair loss call for different kinds of treatment, let’s have a look at two of the most common varieties- progressive and diffuse balding- along with their common causes and some recommended methods of treatment.
Progressive and Diffuse Balding
It’s important to understand that hair loss may present itself in a variety of ways and, as there is no single balding pattern, there is also no single optimal treatment for all cases of hair loss. Thus, it is particularly vital that the individual nature of what you are experiencing is carefully and thoroughly evaluated by our expert diagnosticians. As the old architectural dictum goes, ‘form follows function’ so also the nature of your hair loss will often serve to indicate, to the well-trained eye, both the underlying cause of the hair loss as well as the best option for treatment.
Progressive hair loss, also known as androgenic alopecia, is caused by genetic factors. It is estimated that around 70 percent of men and 40 percent of women are afflicted by this condition. Progressive hair loss can manifest in men at any time starting from their early 20s and will often begin with thinning centered around the hairline and the crown of the head. Progressive hair loss in women can start in the 30s or 40s. However, unlike the distinctive horseshoe like pattern often observed in males, female hair loss tends to occur all over the scalp.
Thankfully, there are a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatment options available for progressive hair loss. Topically applied Rogaine or orally ingested Propecia are two non-surgical methods of hair loss treatment which may be able to help slow the rate of hair loss and to promote fuller hair growth. Various surgical treatments also exist for progressive hair loss; however, it is important to note that, due to the fundamentally different nature of the hair loss patterns among the sexes, surgical treatments tend to be a better option for our male patients.
Hair follicles follow a natural cycle of growth and dormancy. Diffuse hair loss, which results in thinning hair all over the scalp, is often referred to as telogen effluvium, that is, the condition of hair in it’s dormancy/resting phase rather than its growth phase. Progressive hair loss may be connected to genetic factors; however, excessive stress, hormonal imbalances, and other general health issues may also be an underlying or contributing cause. As the underlying causes of diffuse hair loss must be identified in order to provide a patient with the proper treatment, it is important that you discuss your medical history and the nature of your condition with one of our sympathetic specialists. This will help us provide you with the proper medications and/or lifestyle modifications to restore your hair back into a growth phase. Once the underlying causes of diffuse hair loss have been accounted for and the proper treatment provided, you can expect your hair to leave its dormancy phase and to swiftly resume it’s natural growth cycle.

Hairline Design: How Hair Restoration Specialists Acheive Amazing Results

We all agree that first impressions matter. Your hairline, in a very real way, makes your hair’s ‘first impression’ to the world and has a profound effect on your facial appearance. As such, the Modena Hair Institute’s team has extensive experience helping patients to conquer hair loss with the latest cutting-edge surgical treatments. As always, individual factors will play a role in determining the course of your treatment. Age, gender, facial shape, racial and/or ethnic background, and the extent of the hairloss are all factors which Dr. Amir Yazdan at Modena Hair Institute will take into careful consideration when planning your individualized course of treatment. With a little consideration anyone can achieve remarkable, natural-looking results through surgical restoration and recreation of their original hairline.
How Hair Restoration Specialists Acheive Amazing Results
There are many ways in which hair transplant surgeons may design and recreate a patient’s thinning hairline. Consulting past photos of patients before their balding is an invaluable reference point for achieving optimal results. These old photos will be studied to achieve a better idea of what your hairline was like. Consulting reference photos are a great help in producing natural results and in convincingly recreating your appearance.
Proper hair density also must be taken into account. As your hairline is your hair’s ‘first impression’, specialists may focus first on the density of your frontal hairline rather than on the crown of your head to achieve ideal results. The hair grafts must be staggered too, rather than distributed evenly, for natural and aesthetically pleasing results.
Finding your restored hairline’s ideal position is also important and there are many key decisions to be made. A hairline placed too high or too low on the forehead will lead to unappealing results. Individual hairlines are also seldom perfectly straight and our specialists have found that often angling the restored hairline up or down is necessary for achieving the most natural looking results.

Dr. Yazdan makes use of the latest digital imaging software which, in conjunction with a careful consultation of old photos, determines the ideal position of your restored hairline.

In designing the curve and overall shape of your hairline, specialists will also take into account the shape of your face. For example, people with wider faces tend to have better results with a wider arching hairline. Conversely those whose facial features are more narrow often find that ideal results are achieved by designing a narrower curve for the hairline. The most natural looking results occur when the hairline compliments the natural shape of a patient’s face and our specialists are here to help you find the ideal aesthetic proportions of your restored hairline.
The angle of the individual hair grafts can make all the difference when it comes to natural looking results. If the hair grafts are poorly placed, the hair may seem to sprout in all directions. Carefully considering the angle of the hair in a given part of the scalp can help improve the overall results of the restoration procedure and make the hairline look totally natural.
Along with designing the ideal shape of your restored hairline comes the proper placement of the individual grafts. Proper placement of hair grafts is one of the most important factors in achieving natural looking results. Poorly placed hair grafts will seem to grow in all directions. Consequently, at Modena Hair Institute in Southern California and Las Vegas, we take the angle of hair into careful consideration when working on your hairline to ensure that the results look completely natural, healthy and aesthetically pleasing.
Experience Matters
Hair restoration is a science and an art. With the many factors and considerations that come into play, it’s vital that you work with the best hair restoration specialists In pursuing the course of your treatment. Years of experience in the aesthetic process of hair restoration will help our team of specialists to design the best restored hairline for you. Their equally extensive experience in the particular and practical aspects of hair restoration surgery will then easily make that design, and your hair restoration dream, a reality.

Monthly Hair Growth Rate of Following Hair Transplantation

Hair transplants are one of the most effective options available for those pursuing surgical hair loss treatment. Here is some important information to consider should you embark upon this course of treatment. While many patients are well pleased by the excellent results yielded by hair transplants, it is still good to keep in mind that the treatment’s full results will take several months to become noticeable.
Knowledge is power and knowing what to expect, especially after a surgical procedure, can help remove any worries you may have. Patience pays off, and most doctors and patients agree- the results are well worth the wait. With this in mind, let’s have a look at the monthly growth of hair transplants after surgery.
This information pertains on a general level to the monthly growth cycle of both follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedures.
In the initial weeks you may experience some temporary hair loss of the newly transplanted hair following surgery, but don’t be alarmed! This is very typical, and no cause for concern and the hair follicles will begin a new growth phase in the coming months.
Generally speaking, patients should expect to notice new hair growth about three months after the procedure. Every case is unique, so some individual’s growth may occur sooner than three months following treatment while, for others, initial growth may occur slightly later.
The thinner density and lighter color of the new hair growth as compared to your donor sample is a natural part of the restoration process. This, quite simply, means that the new transplanted follicles are healthy. Color, thickness and quality of the hair will continue to increase in the coming months.
Around the six or seven month mark after surgery, you should notice a clear improvement in follicle strength and quality, as well as steady hair growth in the transplant area.
At around eight months after surgery some patients may even achieve their final results, others may require a few more months. However, all patients should expect a steady improvement in hair quality throughout the coming months.
Final results should be apparent about one year after surgery as transplanted hair should achieve it’s full and final density. This is the moment you have been waiting for! Telogen effluvium and density related issues and any other side effects should all be resolved by this point.
So in summary:
Stage 1: The Initial Phase of Telogen Effluvium – After the first two months upon a successful operation, patients will experience a temporary hair fall, a condition called Telogen Effluvium.
Stage 2: Steady hair growth (2 – 5 months) – Beginnings of new hair growth! These hairs are very soft and look like new baby hair. Patients should not weary as it is a natural process of growth, which will invariably become thick in subsequent months.
Stage 3: Consistent Hair Growth phase (6 – 7 months) – At this phase, there is a noticeable consistent hair growth with a better texture. It is not the final stage; however, patients will still experience an improvement in the growth and texture of their hair.
Stage 4: Phase of Remarkable Density (8 – 9 months) – After 8 months, patients will experience a drastic improvement in the growth and quality of their hair. Some can get the ultimate growth at this phase, even without the assistance of their physician.
Stage 5: Full follicle growth achievement (10 – 12 months)
Dr. Yazdan’s unparalleled skill and experience in hair restoration procedures has helped many of our patients achieve the full head of hair they desire.

Postpartum Hair Loss: Causes and Solutions

Postpartum Hair Loss
Everything seems to be going well with life as a new mother, when slowly you begin to notice increased hair loss. It could be extra strands of hair on your pillow or more loose strands during washing, which could progress to hair falling out in clumps. You may change your shampoo or try various hair tonics, but you start to panic about going bald.
As a new mother it’s important not to fall into distress – the above scenario is very common.
There are many possible causes of hair loss, generally known to dermatologists and hair restoration specialists as alopecia. In postpartum hair loss, we are dealing with a very specific type of alopecia known as telogen effluvium, and it is one of the most common conditions treated by dermatologists.
For the majority of individuals, 5 to 15 per cent of the hair on one’s scalp is in the telogen phase, meaning that these hairs are in their resting phase. Telogen effluvium is triggered when a physiologic or hormonal change causes a large number of hairs to enter telogen at one time. Shedding does not occur until the new anagen hairs begin to grow, which usually takes two to three months. The emerging hairs help to force the resting hairs out of the follicle, which is why most people notice a sudden increase in hair fall a few months after delivery, or after an acute illness. The good news is that the prognosis is excellent and in almost all cases, recovery occurs within six months. Often, no specific treatment is required.
Unlike some other animals that shed hair, human hair growth is asynchronous, which means that there are hairs in different stages of the growth cycle at any one time. Normal hair grows in cycles and goes through three stages:

  • Anagen: growing phase
  • Telogen: resting phase
  • Catagen: falling phase

Therefore, the effect of normal or physiological hair fall is usually not too obvious because about 80 to 90 per cent of our scalp hairs are in the growing anagen phase at any given moment. Thus, it is normal for a person to lose as many as 50 to 100 strands of hair daily, and these usually show up on a comb, brush or on the bathroom floor, especially after washing your hair.
As a first response to excessive hair fall in newly made mothers, supplements are occasionally prescribed and, in some cases, medical topical therapy as well, taking into account whether the mother is breastfeeding or not.
At Modena Hair Institute in Orange County, we generally advise patients to use a doctor-developed conditioning shampoo like groMD, as well as minimize activities that might result in excessive hair loss, such as rough combing and brushing of the hair, or tying it into very tight braids or buns. It’s uncommon for hair loss associated with pregnancy to persist unless there are other medical issues involved such as iron deficiency or thyroid disorders. If symptoms of excessive hair fall continue beyond six months, you should seek medical counsel.
In summary, there are a number of modalities which combat the specific form of telogen effluvium that is postpartum hair loss. Patients may try one modality at a time, beginning with the least involved and add or replace modalities as they see results. Each has positives and negatives and not all will be equally effective. Hair transplantation is the final and most definitive solution, however this should be delayed until you have reached a stable hair pattern. This is due to the fact that the transplanted hair is permanent and if you have not reached a stable pattern you can expect further losses and the need for more grafting to avoid the appearance of a double hairline (grafted hairline followed by losses and the receding natural hairline)
The crucial first step before considering various treatments is establishing the underlying cause. In most cases, as discussed previously, hormonal changes associated with pregnancy are a likely suspect. Given enough time, most of the hormonal effects caused by child birth are transient and will balance themselves out in six to eight months. If no response is noted, a medical workup is recommended. Once these issues have been properly addressed, the mother should consider the above listed modalities and decide where to get on board with the help of a hair restoration specialist.

Hair Cycle and Hair Loss

hair phases
At Modena Hair Institute we care scrupulously about the details and processes behind hair cycle and loss. Knowledge of hair cycles (or phases) are foundational to understanding the nature of hair loss, as hair thinning and problems with hair growth occur when your growth cycle is disrupted. This can be triggered by conditions such as metabolic disturbances, illness or improper nutrition.

The hair cycle is the all-important mechanism regulating hair growth in the body. Normally, each individual hair strand follows its own hair cycling schedule, completely independent of other hairs on the scalp.

In the following article we will dive into the nature and consequences of hair growth cycles.

The average adult human scalp begins with approximately 100,000 individual hair follicles, and each one of these follicles is constantly undergoing a regular cycle of growth, shedding, and re-growth. This means that the average, healthy person naturally sheds between 50 and 100 hairs from the head every day.

However, this loss goes largely unnoticed since, unlike other mammals, human hair growth and shedding is random, not seasonal, so the follicles are almost never in the same phase simultaneously. More likely, at any given time a random number of hairs will be in one of three distinct stages of hair growth and shedding: the anagen, the catagen, and the telogen phases.

Anagen Phase: Aggressive Growth
During this phase, the cells in the root of the hair are dividing rapidly, and the hair is growing about half an inch per month, or six inches per year. This new hair pushes through the dermis to the surface of the scalp, dislodging older hair along the way. Scalp hair can remain in an active growth phase for anywhere from two to six years, depending on an individual’s genetics, which is why some people find it easier to grow their hair longer than others. At any given time, about 75% of the hairs are in the anagen phase.

Catagen Phase: A Brief Transition
After the anagen phase comes the transitional catagen phase, a relatively short period, lasting about two to three weeks, when growth stops and the follicle effectively renews itself. During this phase the outer root sheath shrinks and attaches to the root of the hair, forming a stubby hair which is easily shed. This shrinking of the hair follicle is similar to what occurs during common genetic hair loss or androgenetic alopecia, but in the case of the catagen phase is only temporary.

Telogen Phase: Shedding
When the hair enters the telogen phase, it remains completely ‘at rest’ for roughly 100 days. During this time the follicle begins producing a new anagen hair shaft, which pushes out the fully formed club hair that is still resting on the surface. Pulling out a hair in this phase will reveal a solid, hard, dry, white material at the root. Only about ten percent of the hairs on the scalp are in the telogen phase at any one time, except in cases of telogen effluvium, a relatively uncommon form of hair loss that can be brought on by significant physiological stress.

Understanding the regular pattern of hair growth gives us important insights into the progression and underlying causes of hair loss, so it is something that the hair restoration experts at the Modena Hair Institute spend a great deal of time studying.

Stress and Hair Loss: How to Treat Telogen Effluvium

There is strong research linking stress and hair loss. Telogen effluvium, a form of temporary hair loss characterized by diffuse thinning of the hair often caused by stress, disrupts your three natural hair growth patterns – anagen, catagen, telogen.
There seems to be more and more stress on men and women these days, and these growing levels of anxiety are causing more people to seek treatment for their hair loss.
So how exactly does stress cause hair loss? Fortunately, if you are only experiencing low levels of stress, you are not going to lose your hair because of it. Hair loss caused by stress comes from a larger stressful experience or incident.
There is also not just one factor of why stress can cause hair loss, but is actually a combination or several factors. When you are under a great deal of stress, your body produces more adrenaline and any excess adrenaline that your body does not use is converted into cholesterol. When you have raised levels of cholesterol, it increases your level of testosterone. For people with a sensitivity to testosterone, it can negatively impact their hair follicles.
Your immune system can suffer if you are feeling stress or anxiety, and this makes you more susceptible to getting an illness or an infection. This can impact your hair’s growth cycle, since the average person has 90% of their hair in the growing cycle, which will usually last a few years before it goes into a resting stage and then falls out. On average, people lose 100 hairs each day, but if your hair’s growing cycle is disrupted, it can cause more hairs than usual to go into the resting phase, and can also cause a lot of hair to fall out all at once.
This will usually happen around two months after a stressful event or an illness. Many women experience mild hair loss following pregnancy. Most people who suffer from this type of hair loss only experience temporary hair loss and their hair will usually resume its normal growth cycle once they alleviate the cause of their stress. Once you have gotten rid of your stress, you should notice significant improvements in your overall health, in addition to your hair growth.
If you have already started to notice thinning hair or bald spots, if you continue to look at your hair in the mirror to check if it has gotten worse, you will only be adding to your stress. There are excellent hair loss treatments available at Modena Hair Institute that can restore your confidence, such as follicular unit extraction (FUE) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
PRP works by stimulating newly implanted or inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase. Modena Hair Institute in Orange County, Las Vegas and Beverly Hills offers a highly advanced version of PRP therapy that is enhanced with a one-of-a-kind propriety protein called Acell. This procedure can stop hair thinning and increase hair count, thickness, and growth speed.
With FUE transplant surgery, Dr. Amir Yazdan removes donor hair follicles from the sides and back of the scalp and relocates them on the top of the scalp where the hair loss has occurred. Dr. Yazdan uses micro-incisions to create sites to place each individual follicular unit, which will grow into a natural, undetectable pattern over the next year.

Stress and hair loss

Do you suffer from high stress levels?
If so, your stress could be causing your hair loss.
Stress has been linked to 3 main types of hair loss: telogen effluvium, trichotillomania, and alopecia areata.
In patients with telogen effluvium, hair follicles are converted back into the resting phase, which causes the follicles to stop producing and growing hair. Additionally, current hair growth can fall our during brushing and washing.
Trichotillomania is less common and has to do with a stress response wherein patients pull at their hair. Excessive pulling of hair shocks hair follicles and can cause them to stop producing new hair growth.
Alopecia areata is more common and can be caused by many things, not just stress. In a patient with this condition, the immune system identifies hair follicles as foreign bodies and attacks them. This of course, causes hair loss.
If you suffer from any of these 3 types of hair loss, your stress levels may be to blame. If you have just begun noticing hair loss, you may be able to reverse it with stress management and lifestyle changes.
Effective methods of stress management include talk or behavioral therapy, yoga, exercise, meditation, and dedicated relaxation time, just to name a few. Each method works differently for everyone, so don’t give up if one method doesn’t work for you. Keep trying until you find the best outlet for your stress.
Effective stress-minimizing lifestyle changes include a healthy work-life balance, setting boundaries with relatives, friends, and your employer, utilizing public transportation, and establishing a routine.
If you have been experiencing hair loss for some time, your hair follicles have likely died off. Once a hair follicle has died there is no way to bring it back to life. But, all hope isn’t lost. You may be a candidate for hair transplantation. Feel free to read up more on that here.

Do you have telogen effluvium hair loss?

Telogen effluvium is the second most common type of hair loss. This type of hair loss is characterized by diffuse thinning of the hair, mostly on the top of the scalp. Contrary to the popular receding hair line, telogen effluvium does not involve any receding, rather widespread thinning.
Telogen effluvium occurs when a large number of hair follicles stop producing hair and enter the resting phase. The result is a large number of hairs that are shed each day.
What causes telogen effluvium? It is widely agreed that high levels of stress and/or an unbalanced diet are the causes of this type of hair loss. The exact effect of these stressors can be short-lived or prolonged.
For example, a sudden stressor or environmental shock such as a physical trauma like a car accident or the start of a new medication can cause a sudden onset of telogen effluvium. As you recover from the trauma or adjust to the new medication, the hair loss should resolve and return to normal.
A more prolonged case of telogen effluvium would be caused by a persistent trigger. This could be due to a chronic illness, chronic stress, or a diet deficiency. This cause of hair loss is more difficult to treat, as the follicles have experienced more long-term damage.
Here are some things you can do to manage the root cause of your telogen effluvium:
Stress: If you have a particularly stressful job or life, it could be taking a toll on your hair. Try finding a stress management method that works for you. Many individuals have had success with yoga, meditation, running, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Diet: If you’re a vegetarian, or your diet is low in red meat, you may not be getting enough iron. Low iron can result in hair loss over time. A balanced diet is key to overall health. If you are unable to introduce more iron into your diet naturally, try a supplement.
While simply changing your diet or managing your stress is a great place to start if you have telogen effluvium, it may not be enough to solve all your hair loss problems. The follicles may need some help entering the growth stage once more. If that’s the case, PRP therapy and laser therapy have proved effective in jump-starting the growth process.
