CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS
Hair loss can be an emotionally difficult condition for both men and women. There are many causes of hair loss. Most commonly it can be genetic, age-related hair loss. Both men and women tend to lose hair thickness and amount of hair as they age. Inherited or “pattern baldness” affects many more men than women. By age 35, two thirds of American men will have some degree of appreciable hair loss and by age 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.
Other causes of hair loss are stress, illness, trauma, medication-related, and autoimmune. Alopecia areata is a very common autoimmune disorder causing patches of hair loss and, fortunately, is treatable at Le Reve Aesthetics.
MEDICATIONS FOR HAIR LOSS
With a correct diagnosis, many men and women with hair loss can be helped with the use of medicines. Ryan will examine your scalp, review your history, and pursue the appropriate workup to correctly diagnose the reason for your hair loss which may include topical medications such minoxidil, oral medications such as finasteride (Propecia), injections, topical steroids, and other medications. Because a correct diagnosis is critical to your hair loss treatment plan, we invite you to contact Le Reve Aesthetics to schedule an appointment and learn more about options for your hair loss.
NUTRAFOL NATURAL HAIR GROWTH FORMULA
Nutrafol is a new approach to hair growth and available from Le Reve Aesthetics. As a 100% drug-free alternative for stress and hormonally related hair loss and hair thinning, Nutrafol works by controlling inflammation, stimulating the hair growth cycle, and helping with proper nourishment that leads to hair growth.
HOW NUTRAFOL WORKS
The research behind the success of Nutrafol shows that inflammation, oxidative stress, and irregular signaling are the root cause of stress-related and hormonal hair loss. Triggers cause the release of free radicals and micro-inflammation which produces chemical molecules that alter the hair growth cycle forcing them to shed away. Nutrafol prevents this cycle by balancing essential hormones, repairing the follicles and reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and in turn allowing the hair to grow.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a new method to treat hair loss (androgenic alopecia). Some patients experience a reduction in hair loss after several PRP treatments, and also an improvement in the volume and coverage of hair on treated areas of the scalp. PRP is an injectable made from your blood! PRP speeds healing and has been used for years to help athletes recover from injuries and to repair tendons and joints.
A small amount of your blood is drawn and then with a centrifuge, the platelet-rich plasma is extracted. After the injections of the PRP into your scalp, you may experience some redness, a little swelling or even bruising for a few days. Ask us if PRP could be right for you.
