Why Do We Lose Our Hair?
There are many reasons why you may start to lose your hair. While it is different for everyone, it could be because of genetics, aging, stress, hormones, heavy metals, environmental toxins, or even certain medications.
Genetics. If hair loss runs in your family, you may be more likely to experience it yourself. This type of hair loss is known as androgenetic alopecia or “male pattern baldness.” Around 80% of men will suffer from this at some point in their lives.
Aging. As we age, our bodies produce less of the hormones that are responsible for hair growth. This is why many people notice their hair thinning as they get older.
Stress. Both physical and emotional stress can cause hair loss. Physical stress from surgery or illness can shock the system and cause hair to fall out. Emotional stress from bereavement or financial problems can also lead to hair loss. This type of hair loss is usually temporary, and the hair will grow back once the stress has passed.
Hormones. Hormonal changes, such as those experienced during menopause or pregnancy, can also cause hair loss. Hormones can also be responsible for conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Excessive androgenic hormones associated with PCOS can lead to hair loss and thinning.
Medications. Certain medications can cause hair loss as a side effect. These include drugs used to treat cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, and high blood pressure. If you think your medication is causing hair loss, then speak to your doctor about a possible alternative.
Treatments for Hair Loss
There are many different hair loss treatments available. The right one for you will depend on the cause of your hair loss, age, health, and lifestyle. Dr. Scott Maymon, ND, MPH, and Dr. Sarah Stone, ND, will create a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
PRP for Hair Loss
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a new and emerging treatment for hair loss. Many people lose hair as they age (androgenetic alopecia), but platelets can help to spur hair growth. The treatment involves taking a sample of your blood and separating out the platelets. These cells are injected into the scalp to reach the bottom of the follicle where the dermal papilla cells reside. These specific cells play an important role in helping hair to grow. PRP is effective for both men and women and can be used to treat all types of hair loss.
Because PRP is not a cure for conditions that lead to hair loss, multiple PRP treatments over time are necessary to maintain any hair growth results. If you’re a heavy smoker, taking blood thinners, have a low platelet count, or if you have any kind of medical condition, PRP therapy might not be right for you.
Red Light Therapy for Hair Loss
Red light therapy (low-level laser therapy) is a safe, non-invasive, effective treatment that uses low-level lasers or LED lights to stimulate hair growth and increase hair density. This treatment is beneficial for anyone suffering from male or female pattern baldness.
Red light therapy increases ATP production and blood circulation in the scalp. These red and near-infrared wavelengths of light function similarly to natural sunlight; it reduces oxidative stress and has a powerful stimulating effect on dermal papilla cells, which play an important role in regulating hair growth and cycling. Red light therapy is most effective in stimulating hair growth when combined with other hair loss treatments such as PRP, microneedling, peptides, and supplements.
Peptides Treatment for Hair Loss
Peptides are short-chain amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins. They are involved in many biological processes, including cell growth and regeneration. Within the body, they trigger an anti-inflammatory response and help with muscle repair.
Peptides have the ability to stimulate cells and, as a result, help hair grow. They also serve as cell-signaling molecules, assisting in protein synthesis, which is crucial for hair growth. They can also assist with reducing inflammation and irritation in the scalp, which is harmful to hair health.
