Is your hair thinning?
As we age, we often find our hair no longer looks or feels as full and healthy as it used to.
It’s not uncommon for the part to widen; your scalp to be more visible; and to find more broken hair in your hairbrush, on the bathroom floor and in your shower drain.
It can be devastating to notice that your once luscious locks are becoming a little lacklustre.
But the good news is that, most of the time, it is possible to encourage the return of thicker, stronger hair. The trick is beginning treatment as early as possible to get the best result.
When you’re ready to start taking action against your hair loss and book an appointment with me, we will begin by completing a scalp examination and a few blood tests. The results of these will help me to make the best recommendations for your specific needs.
Often, my treatment plans will use a combination of products and technology, which may include:
Specially-formulated hair loss supplements
Hair loss can be caused by poor nutrition or a lack of necessary vitamins and minerals. Supplements formulated specifically with healthy hair in mind, can aid in hair loss treatments.
Follicle stimulating shampoos and serums
We recommend a number of products that can be applied topically, in the form of shampoos or serums, to encourage growth, strengthen hair, and reduce breakage and shedding.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) which regenerate tissue and hair follicles
We have been using platelet rich plasma (PRP) for skin rejuvenation for some time and are now also using it for hair loss.
The treatment involves taking a small sample of blood that is then spun down to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood to create a serum.
Platelets have been scientifically shown to regenerate whatever tissue they come into contact with and rollering in a serum rich in your own platelets can help to regenerate healthy hair follicles that will produce thicker stronger hairs.
Three or more treatments 2 months apart are usually recommended for optimal outcome.
A red-light laser cap proven to increase hair growth.
Red light treatment has also been scientifically proven to increase hair growth if used regularly. It works be increasing blood flow to your scalp, which in turn accelerates hair growth.
Regular, long-term use of red light caps at home can have a significant positive impact on hair loss.
While it can be hard to admit that hair loss is happening to you, the best way to stop (or at the very least, slow) it in its tracks is to do something about it as early as possible.
