Chronic and acute telogen effluvium: How to treat it?

In addition to androgenic alopecia, there are several factors that can be the cause of a hair loss. To stop this hair loss it is essential to know its origin and, consequently, to put the best treatment in each case. Chronic and acute telogen effluvium it can be one of the causes that trigger hair loss.

What does it consist of and how can we treat it? We give you all the information in the blog de Hospital Capilar.

What is telogen effluvium?

When we speak of telogen effluvium we are referring to a sudden and diffuse hair loss caused by a dysregulation of the follicular cycle. It is a hair pathology that, according to our doctors, affects women to a greater extent, although men can also develop it.

There is no specific cause that initiates telogen effluvium, but it can occur for different reasons such as hormonal alteration, stress, a hair loss due to pregnancy or simply due to a lack of nutrients.

The usual thing is that heThe effects of telogen effluvium are reversible and depending on the duration of the same we can be before two different types: the chronic and acute telogen effluvium.

Chronic and Acute Telogen Effluvium: How Are They Different?

Telogen effluvium usually presents with a diffuse hair loss with loss of density, especially in the frontal area. The main difference between the two is the duration of the fall.

Chronic telogen effluvium

Chronic telogen effluvium is that longer lasting. Hair loss can last up to more than six months.

Acute telogen effluvium

On the other hand, the effects of acute telogen effluvium last less. It is a punctual fall, weeks and usually reversible.

How to treat telogen effluvium?

As with the androgenic alopecia, we can resort to hair treatments that help us stop the symptoms of chronic and acute telogen effluvium. In Hospital Capilar We have treatments with proven medical efficacy to keep hair in the best possible condition.

Capillary Regeneration Treatment or CRT 

El Capillary Regeneration Treatment, or CRT, is a treatment that helps hair regeneration. It consists of the extraction of a small amount of blood from the patient, which is subsequently centrifuged, thus extracting a series of factors rich in growth. These are injected directly into the scalp using virtually painless microinjections.

Thanks to this treatment, we are able to avoid miniaturization of the hair, as well as promote its strengthening.

Hair Redensification Treatment or HRT

El Hair Redensification Treatment, or HRT, helps to stop hair loss and prevents miniaturization of the same thanks to the pharmacotherapy adapted to each patient. By means of practically painless microinjections, vitamins and drugs are applied directly to the scalp, acting at the root of the problem.
