Hair is targeted from all sides by external elements that can permanently damage it: too vigorous brushing, too much washing, excessive drying heat, prolonged exposure to sunlight, pollution, etc.
Hair loss: what is it?
Although it is common to lose around 45 to 60 hairs a day, some well-known phenomena can cause excessive loss, but luckily they are usually only temporary.
Losing more than 100 hairs a day for a period of at least two months is considered pathological hair loss and the patient should consult a specialist.
What are the causes of your hair loss?
Temporary hair loss is distinct from chronic androgenetic alopecia, which is permanent.
Our hair is like a plant, it follows the seasons. Hair loss in autumn and winter is due to the effects of summer, in which the sun and the heat cause the human body to secrete hormones to promote hair growth and hair retention that would otherwise fall out. In winter, when there is less sunlight and the weather is colder, there is no activation of this hormone. As a consequence, your hair is falling like the autumn leaves.
Hormonal shifts for women
Hair is very susceptible to hormonal changes during pregnancy or after birth. During pregnancy, the hair is artificially held in the bulb of the hair, so there are more hairs in the telogen phase at birth, and then more of them fall out.
Hair loss can also be caused by dysfunction of the thyroid gland or by a slowdown in the functioning of the pituitary gland. In this case, a hormone test should be carried out and these imbalances resolved by the necessary medication prescribed by a physician.
An emotional shock
Abrupt emotional shocks can cause immediate, excessive hair loss up to 4 months after shock.
Chemotherapy or taking certain medicines
Certain chemotherapy treatments or medicines may cause temporary alopecia. Hair typically begins to grow back about one month after the completion of treatment.
Deficiencies in vitamins
Unbalanced diets can lead to vitamin deficiencies that ultimately cause hair loss.
Alopecia is an inflammatory disease that induces hair loss, which is often reversible. It is marked by one or more areas of hair loss of different sizes.
Hair loss: how to defeat it?
Hair loss can be treated in various ways depending on the cause.
PRP injections enhance the hair bulb stem cells while mesotherapy nourishes the scalp. Combine these two procedures for the best results.
LED treatment optimises the outcomes of these two methods thanks to a targeted lamp that amplifies the effects of the injected products (platelet-rich plasma or active ingredients).
