Geriatric Trichology: Besides male and female pattern baldness, alopecia areata, senescent alopecia which are common geriatric trichology issues, there are several ailments that can lead to hair loss. They include scarring alopecias likes LPP, Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia, Folliculitis Decalvans etc. There is also hair loss that is caused due to tumor metastasis to the scalp, commonly seen among breast cancer patients. Menopause can also cause hair loss. Overall hair loss among the elderly is multifactorial and warrants close inspection. Specialized treatments in the form of hormonal therapies, topical treatments, SMP as well as non-surgical options of hair weaving and bonding, in addition to hair transplants will be offered to geriatric patients.
Endocrinal Trichology: Hair growth is regulated by hormonal changes in the body. Patients will be diagnosed through a series of thorough blood tests. Based on individual cases, nutritional counselling will be provided. Medications that specifically deal with endocrine related ailments will be prescribed. Additional therapies such as micro-grafting, SMP as well as hair transplants and micro-grafting options will be offered.

Non-medical reasons include new born hair loss, frictional hair loss as well as hair abuse. These require specialized attention, counselling as well as treatment therapies that will now be managed through the super specialties at Hairline International.
Gynaecological Trichology:There are several gynaecological reasons why hair may be affected. Take for example,during pregnancy, an increased number of hair go into resting phase which is a part of normal hair loss cycle. It may occur due to vitamin or mineral deficiency. Most common period of hair loss is 3 months post-delivery or post-partum. Up to 60% of hair that is in the growth phase may enter the resting phase leading to acute or chronic Telogen Effluvium. Hair loss is also triggered by the change in the estrogen levels which is characteristic of peri and post-menopausal stages in a woman's life.
Bariatric trichology: Patients suffering from obesity and obesity-related diseases usually follow vigorous crash diet routines with the intention of losing weight. This causes nutritional deficiencies which reflect on skin and hair. Obese patients also undergo surgeries to lose weight and this causes post-surgical stress on the body, which can lead to excess hair loss, baldness etc. For a holistic approach such patients can be treated medically, and aesthetically with patches, wigs, extensions under supervision of a bariatric surgeon, dermatologist as well as a nutritionist here at Hairline.
Psychiatric Trichology: Many psychiatric issues such as anxiety, depression, anorexia, bulimia, schizophrenia etc., can cause issues like Alopecia areata, Tellogen effluvium and Trichotillomania etc. These problems can be addressed by a psychiatrist, a nutritionist and a dermatologist at Hairline by providing aesthetic help to improve confidence, self-esteem and
Other causes include miscarriage, abortion and intake of OCP (oral contraceptive pills). Specialized management care will be done with blood tests, nutritional counselling as well as medication that is pregnancy safe. Also included will be counselling on hair care to improve the condition.
