What Is Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a common condition characterized by reduced quantity, thickness, or quality of hair on the scalp or various body parts. It can occur in various forms, from thinning hair to receding hairlines and bald patches, and can impact individuals of all ages and genders. Hair plays a significant role in one's self-image and identity, making hair loss a personal concern for many people. The extent and pattern of hair loss can vary widely from person to person, and understanding the underlying causes is crucial in addressing and managing this condition effectively.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a common issue with numerous potential causes. Genetics, for instance, can play a prominent role, as hereditary factors predispose individuals to specific hair loss patterns, such as male or female baldness.

Autoimmune conditions, where the immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, can also result in hair loss. Acute and chronic stress can trigger a condition called telogen effluvium, leading to increased hair shedding. Certain hairstyles that pull the hair tightly, like braids or ponytails, can lead to traction alopecia, hair loss caused by prolonged tension on the hair shafts. Underlying medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), can contribute to hair loss, and some medications, like chemotherapy drugs, are known to cause hair loss as a side effect. Nutritional deficiencies, particularly of vitamins and minerals like iron and biotin, can also result in hair thinning. Additionally, aging naturally changes hair density and quality as hair follicles become less active with age.

Understanding the specific cause of hair loss is essential for developing an appropriate treatment plan.

At MD Skin Lab, we offer an effective, popular treatment to help our clients with hair loss.

PRP Hair Restoration

If you're experiencing hair loss due to stress, hormonal changes, family history, postpartum hair loss, medication use, or a post-hair transplant, you may want to consider platelet-rich plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration. This cosmetic procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive, and it aims to restore hair growth by injecting PRP into the scalp to stimulate hair follicles. After the extraction, the platelet-rich plasma contains the specific growth factors that work together to aid in regrowing and thickening the hair. Multiple sessions are necessary to achieve your hair goals, with maintenance sessions afterward.
