Hair Loss

Hair loss can be very upsetting.  It can affect men and women alike.  It is normal to lose 50-100 hairs a day without even noticing it.  Hair loss may be a result of a medical condition such as illness, stress, cancer treatment,  weight loss and iron deficiency.  Some hair loss is permanent and runs in the family. 

*Male pattern hair loss

The typical pattern of male baldness begins at the hairline in the front of the head. The hairline gradually moves backward (recedes) and forms an "M" shape. A circular area on the back of the head (vertex) often thins and expands in size over time.

*Female pattern hair loss

Female-pattern hair loss (alopecia) is caused by hormones, aging and genetics. Unlike male-pattern baldness, female-pattern baldness is an over-all thinning which maintains the normal hairline.

*Androgenic alopecia

Androgenetic alopecia is a common form of hair loss in both men and women.  The inheritance pattern of androgenetic alopecia is unclear, because many genetic and environmental factors are likely to be involved. This condition tends to run in families. Androgenetic alopecia in women rarely leads to total baldness.  It is associated with an increased risk of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is characterized by a hormonal imbalance that can lead to irregular menstruation, acne, excess hair elsewhere on the body (hirsutism), and weight gain.

Treatment of hair loss consists of minoxidil, finasteride,  steroid creams,  steroid injections, wigs, LED light treatment, immunotherapy and hair transplant. Novel treatments include injections of platelets rich plasma - PRP  or fibryn iPRF into the scalp, microneedling radiofrequency using SylFirm X Ultimate and Fotona laser HaiRestart all of which stimulate rejuvenation of scalp and hair growth.
