The hair loss industry is worth hundred of millions of dollars worldwide. With so many treatment options now available you can’t enter a pharmacy or cosmetics shop without seeing hair growth supplements, hair-thickening fibres or scalp treatments which claim to be able to help nourish hair follicles and a healthier environment for your hair.
Experts are now suggesting that more than one quarter of dermatology practice appear to be made up of patients suffering from hair loss or looking for hair restoration procedures. Some patients are coming in simply looking for preventative measures only.
Hair loss solutions
In order to get the correct advice regarding your hair loss, you need to work with your doctor or speak to a specialist hair loss clinic to determine the true cause of your hair loss before you can decide on the appropriate and most effective treatment options.
Many patients are simply dealing with hair loss as a result of genetics and inherited conditions. In this situation, it is sometimes recommended that patients seek injections of vitamin B complexes, topical solutions of Minoxidil and hair-growth laser treatments. In combination each of these therapies can be highly effective and by adding in plasma rich protein (PRP) injections, patients can further enhance their results.
Talk to an expert
Before beginning treatment, it is crucial that you pin point the cause of your hair loss and whether the condition truly is genetic in your case. Sometimes a doctor may suggest blood tests along with an extensive look into your medical history.
Other more rare, yet completely valid causes of hair loss include; vitamin deficiencies, new medicines, recent trauma or surgery, stress and change in weight or hormone levels.
Keep in mind though, that it is completely normal to lose up to one hundred strands of hair on a daily basis.
