Hair Restoration Treatments for COVID Hair Loss

With the country still fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, people are not only worried about losing their jobs or homes, many are  also worried about hair loss. Several patients who have recovered from the virus have taken to social media to reveal COVID hair loss as an effect of the disease. While in many instances their hair loss is directly related to having had COVID-19, sometimes stress may be to blame. Currently, two out of every five persons are suffering from stress-related hair loss, whether as a result of stress alone or as a result of a COVID-19 diagnosis. 

COVID Hair Loss an Telogen Effluvium 

According to Dr. Craig Ziering, you may be suffering from a type of stress-related hair loss called telogen effluvium  if you are losing more than 100 to 150 hairs a day. The physical and emotional stress that accompanies a case of COVID-19 or the pandemic itself is the most likely reason for this stress and it’s related symptoms. Telogen effluvium is common after an emotionally distressing event (like this pandemic), major surgery, or high fever. This forces your hair to the resting phase (telogen) of the hair growth cycle resulting in hair loss. While telogen effluvium is temporary and hair usually regrows after six to nine months, it may reveal genetic male or female pattern hair loss. In this case, it is best to consult with your doctor for the best treatment for you. 

Losing hair during the COVID-19 pandemic is as distressing as it gets. Hair loss can take a hit on your confidence and self-esteem and may start affecting other areas of your life when left untreated. The good news is Dr. Ziering and his team of hair restoration specialists are here to help you. They are excited to speak with you and begin your journey to restoring your hair confidence.

Surgical Hair Transplants: FUE and MDEE

Hair transplant procedures may be recommended especially if you have underlying male or female pattern genetic hair loss. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Microscopically Dissected

Elliptical Excision (MDEE), formerly known as FUT, are surgical hair loss solutions available at Ziering Medical. With the recent advances in hair transplant methods, the results of these procedures can look so natural that a barber or stylist can’t tell you’ve had anything done. Hair transplant surgery is the only permanent hair loss treatment option. But you’ll have to talk to Dr. Ziering and his team of doctors to tell if you’re a good candidate for a hair transplant.
