Causes Symptoms Treatments
Hair loss, or alopecia, is one of the most frustrating conditions for both men and women. Male hair loss usually follows a pattern of a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples. On the other hand, female hair loss usually starts to gradually thin on the top of the head.
When considering the modern lifestyle, various factors can be causes of hair loss, preventing us from maintaining strong and healthy hair. From stress to water pollution and harmful chemicals in hair products along with excessive styling, there is a variety of external factors that will affect the normal function of the hair follicles. However, the most dramatic results of receding hair line are usually related to hormonal shifts in females and hereditary conditions in males.
Hair loss at EF MEDISPA can be dealt with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or else known as PRP Therapy. A less invasive hair loss treatment than the traditional hair transplant.*
There are some simple lifestyle tips you can use if you would like to maintain healthy hair. First of all make sure you are having sufficient intake of vitamins and valuable minerals such as vitamin c, folic acid, omega-3 and iron. In addition, make sure the hair products you are using do not contain harmful chemicals, reduce blow drying, straightening and excess styling that can also be causes of hair loss as they damage your hair follicles. Finally, an occasional scalp massage has been proved to improve micro-circulation and blood flow on your head enhancing the optimum function of the hair follicles.
If you have hair follicles that still produce hair you can definitely improve the condition and enhance hair growth. However, PRP Therapy only works on present hair, it is not a baldness cure. If you suffer from complete baldness, other treatments, such as hair transplant might be a more suitable solution.
