Understanding the Factors That Influence Hair Loss: Causes & Treatments

Hair loss is a common concern that affects people of all ages and genders. Understanding the underlying factors contributing to hair loss is crucial to finding effective treatments. In this article, we will explore the different types of hair loss, the common causes behind it, the diagnostic methods employed, and the main treatments available.

At Hair & Skin Science, we offer cutting-edge hair loss treatments that cater to individual needs, providing long-lasting and natural-looking results.

Types of Hair Loss

Hair loss can manifest in various forms, each with its unique characteristics. The most common types include androgenetic alopecia (male and female pattern baldness), alopecia areata (patchy hair loss), telogen effluvium (temporary hair shedding), and traction alopecia (hair loss due to excessive tension on the hair). Understanding the type of hair loss you are experiencing is the first step towards effective treatment.

Causes of Hair Loss

Several factors contribute to hair loss, ranging from genetics and hormonal imbalances to lifestyle choices and medical conditions. Hereditary factors play a significant role in androgenetic alopecia, while stress, illness, and nutritional deficiencies can lead to temporary hair shedding. Additionally, certain medications and excessive hairstyling practices can contribute to hair loss. Identifying the root cause of hair loss is essential for determining the most appropriate treatment.

Diagnosing Hair Loss

Accurate diagnosis is crucial for developing a personalised treatment plan. Our specialists at Hair & Skin Science employ a comprehensive approach to diagnose hair loss, including a thorough medical history review, scalp examination, and, if necessary, blood tests or scalp biopsies. With advanced diagnostic techniques, we can pinpoint the specific cause of hair loss and tailor a suitable treatment regimen.

Treatment of Hair Loss

At Hair & Skin Science, we offer a range of advanced hair loss treatments tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Our treatments include:

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): This technique involves transplanting hair follicles from the donor area to the recipient area, providing natural-looking and permanent results.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): FUE involves individually extracting hair follicles from the donor area and transplanting them to the desired region. It offers minimal scarring and a faster recovery time.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP therapy utilises the patient’s own blood plasma enriched with growth factors to stimulate hair growth and promote hair thickness.

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP): SMP is a non-surgical procedure that creates the appearance of fuller hair by applying pigments to the scalp.

Understanding the factors influencing hair loss is essential in choosing the most suitable treatment. At Hair & Skin Science, our team of experts offers advanced hair loss solutions, including FUT, FUE, PRP therapy, and SMP. With our personalised approach and commitment to delivering natural-looking results, we can help you regain your confidence and achieve a full head of hair.
