Excessive diffuse hair loss is a disorder that causes hair to fall out excessively. This condition will likely become more apparent with age. Diffuse hair loss often starts around puberty and becomes more common in men over 40. In many cases, the condition is not specific to any disease. However, certain conditions are associated with excessive diffuse hair loss including thyroid disease, testosterone deficiency, malnutrition, emotional stress, hormonal imbalances as well as postpartum hair loss in women.
Excessive diffuse hair loss can affect one or both of your scalp and body. In some cases, the condition becomes apparent before puberty. In other cases, the condition becomes apparent during the teenage years or later in life.

Causes of Hair Loss
If you are thinking about how to stop hair loss, you have to know about the latest treatment options:
Oral and Topical Medications: Oral and topical medications for hair loss are directed at stimulating or retarding hair follicle activity. The stimulants generally work by increasing the nutrient supply to the follicles, whereas the agents that retard hair growth act to prolong the anagen (the growing phase of the hair cycle). Oral medications generally affect only scalp hair; they do not affect hair on other body sites. Topical medications, on the other hand, are designed to affect both scalp and body hair.
IntraLesional/Meso Injections: Intralesional injections are effective in stimulating hair growth in men and women with diffuse thinning. This treatment involves the injection of anti-inflammatory or stimulatory agents into the affected area of the scalp to treat hair loss. Intralesional injections can be combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) for more effective stimulation. Some of the common benefits of IntraLesional or Meso Injections are as follows: treats hair loss in both men and women, stimulates hair growth on the scalp, safe with low risk of complications, produces visible hair growth after a few sessions, and is a convenient treatment option.
