Hair Loss

Hair loss, also known as Alopecia, is the result of a disruption of the body’s hair cycle production. While this can occur anywhere on the body, it most commonly affects the scalp.

There are three phases of the hair growth cycle. Anagen, active growth, that can last for years. Catagen, stoppage of growth and separation from the follicle, lasting around 10 days. Telogen, resting state for the follicle, lasting for two to three months. As we age and/or disruption of the follicle can lead to a shortening of these phases. Leading to progressive hair loss that does not keep up with regeneration and can cause overall thinning or complete hair loss. 

There are several different causes of hair loss. The most common type is Androgenic Alopecia also known as male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness. This is often hereditary. In this disorder an excess of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) binds to androgen receptors of hair follicles, causing overactivation of the cells leading to follicular miniaturization. This will appear as smaller and thinner hair. Over time these cells will cease to even produce the smaller hairs and be permanently silenced. If treated early there is the potential to arrest or delay the process of miniaturization. 

Treatment Options

This can be done with medications like Minoxidil or Finasteride, by hair transplantation, or with Red Light Therapy (RLT), also known as Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). 

Here at SkinBeautiful, we approach this problem with Red Light Therapy (RLT) aka Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), and can combine this with either Exosomes or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). To learn more about these treatment options and which is best for you, schedule an appointment with us today.
