What Causes Hair Loss?

There are many different causes of hair loss. Below, we’ve gone into detail about some of the more common causes:

  • • Hereditary Conditions: This is perhaps the most common cause of hair loss, and it happens with aging. Many know this as male pattern baldness. Typically, it occurs gradually and in a predictable manner, such as bald spots.
  • • Poor Health: After hereditary conditions, the most common health-related causes of hair loss are thyroid abnormality or anemia. Iron deficiency can also cause hair loss.
  • • Poor Nutrition/Diet: Without sufficient proteins, glucose, and vitamins, the growing phase of a hair cycle can shorten, and dieting can cause hair loss due to the body’s metabolic changes.
  • • Medical Conditions: These conditions can include alopecia areata, causing patchy hair loss, scalp infections such as ringworm, and trichotillomania, a hair-pulling disorder.
  • • High Levels of Stress: If you experience a stressful event, you might see a general thinning of your hair for several months afterward.
  • • Hairstyles/Treatments: Certain hairstyles and treatments can cause hair loss. These include pigtails or cornrows, hot-oil hair treatments, and perms.

Hair Loss in Men

The most common type of hair loss in men is a type of alopecia known as male pattern baldness. This hereditary condition is responsible for the typical receding hairline and thinning “bald spot” that some men develop as they age. It usually begins well into adulthood but can sometimes affect boys in their teens.

Male pattern baldness is currently thought to involve the way a hormone interacts with receptors in human hair follicles. In people who are genetically predisposed, the follicles respond to the hormone by shrinking, causing the hair to struggle. Many non-surgical treatments target this issue by trying to change how the receptors respond.

Hair Loss in Women

Although androgenic alopecia is most common among men, it affects both men and women. Sometimes called female pattern baldness, it typically begins with a widening of the part as the hair volume thins. In older women, the hairline may also begin to recede.

Tight hairstyles are also a risk factor for traction alopecia, especially in women with long hair that gets tied up regularly. Depending on the severity of the damage, wearing the hair down can allow it to begin regrowing naturally.

Treatments for Hair Loss

Depending on the cause of the hair loss and how advanced it is, it may be treated surgically, non-surgically, or with a combination of both.

Non-Surgical Options

If the hair loss is relatively minor or caught at an early stage, it may first be treated with non-surgical options. These help encourage hair regrowth, slow progression, and prevent further loss.

Non-surgical methods used to treat hair loss include:

  • • Topical Products: Solutions applied directly to the scalp, such as Minoxidil (Rogaine).
  • • Medications: Prescription drugs like corticosteroids, anti-androgens (like Propecia), or birth control (for women).
  • • Low-Level Laser Therapy: Targeted light therapy to stimulate hair growth and scalp function.
  • • Scalp Micropigmentation: Tattooing of the scalp to define the hairline or create an appearance of fullness in thinning areas.

Surgical Options

When non-surgical options aren’t sufficient, surgical treatment can transplant donor hair follicles from other areas directly into the scalp. There are many ways this can be done, and different procedures may be better for different patients.

Examples of hair restoration surgery options include:

  • • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): Donor follicles are extracted one-by-one via circular incisions and transplanted into the scalp.
  • • Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT): A strip of donor follicles is removed, then individual units are transplanted into the scalp.
  • • The ARTAS® iX Robotic Hair Transplantation System: A cutting-edge AI-controlled procedure in which a robotic arm implants the hairs precisely and efficiently.
  • • Eyebrow Restoration: Adds volume to thin or lost eyebrows.

Frequently Asked Questions

The following answers to frequently asked questions may shed some light on the practical details of hair loss treatment. If you have other questions, please don’t hesitate to call us.

Is Treatment Painful?

Proper hair restoration is not painful. Some treatments for hair loss may create unusual or uncomfortable sensations on the scalp, but they should never hurt. Topical anesthetics and/or local anesthesia are used to prevent pain during surgical transplants and micropigmentation. Post-surgical pain is usually minimal and can be treated with painkillers.

How Much Does Hair Loss Treatment Cost?

The cost varies depending on the type of treatment, the severity of the hair loss, etc., so it’s difficult to estimate. To find out how much your treatment would cost, schedule a consultation with our surgeon to discuss your options. You can also take advantage of our various discounts, promotional prices, and no-interest financing to make treatment more affordable.

Will My Insurance Cover This?

Unfortunately, hair loss treatment is usually considered a non-covered cosmetic procedure. Even if the hair loss is caused by illness or injury, it’s not technically medically necessary. Although insurance may not help, we regularly offer discounts and provide financing options to help you get hair loss treatment in a way you can afford.
