Hair Loss

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss (alopecia) can affect your scalp, overall appearance as well as your physical and mental well-being. Many start to experience hair loss in their 40’s and it can be temporary or permanent. Both women and men will experience hair loss at some point in their lives. However, hair loss tends to be more noticeable and faster in men.

Reasons for hair loss could be:

  • A strong predisposing genetic factor in accelerated hair loss. 
  • Hormonal changes during puberty, after pregnancy and menopause, and even after taking oral contraceptives may also increase in hair loss.
  • Health conditions, including thyroid disease, iron deficiency anemia, general ill health, and overly strict dieting with protein deprivation can cause more hair loss.
  • Stress can also bring about hormonal changes
  • Physical stress after a serious illness or recovery from surgery
  • Over exercising and emotional stress
  • Systemic disease

It is important to speak to your physician about the cause of your hair loss and treatment options.

How Can Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Help With Hair Regrowth?

Platelets contain growth factors that act like signal callers that help your tissue to regenerate and multiply more cells. With such great benefit, PRP has been utilized for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.

Now more practices and practical experiments have approved new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With PRP for Hair, the growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and repair dormant hair back into the active stage to bring more new hair.

Treatment Options

PRP Hair Restoration

PRP Hair Restoration is a form of regenerative medicine that harnesses the natural growth factors from your own body and injects them into the scalp to promote hair growth. It is considered to be a more affordable, non-surgical alternative to hair transplant surgery. La Vitalité Med Spa is a leading provider of PRP Hair Restoration in Toronto.

During the procedure, blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is separated from the rest of the blood’s components. Once injected into your scalp, PRP increases blood flow to the hair follicles, promotes the growth of new follicles, and extends the anagen (active) phase of the hair cycle to stimulate new hair growth.

Research has shown PRP to be effective for both age-related hair loss and alopecia areata, a condition that causes hair to fall out in small patches. PRP hair restoration is suitable for both men and women.
