What causes hair loss?

It’s a common belief that hair loss is a men’s issue, but while it does occur more frequently in males, it also affects plenty of women.

Hair loss can vary from cause. Some patients suffer from hair loss due to genetics and hormones, while others may have alopecia which is due to an autoimmune disorder, or thinning of the hair following pregnancy.

The cause of female pattern baldness is still not understood but is largely believed to be due to genetics.

There are three types of hair loss: anagen effluvium, telogen effluvium and FPHL.

  • Anagen effluvium: This is caused by medications that poison a growing hair follicle (like chemotherapy).
  • Telogen effluvium: This is caused by an increased number of hair follicles reaching the telogen phase, which is the stage where hair falls out.
  • Androgenetic alopecia/female pattern alopecia/female pattern hair loss (FPHL)/baldness: This type is the most common. Hair most commonly thins over the top of the head and on the sides.


How to treat hair loss

We offer a wide variety of different hair restoration treatments for men and women, to fit your concerns. There are several treatments that are viable options to treat hair loss and continue to stimulate hair growth.

Mesotherapy for Hair – Mesotherapy is another injectable treatment. Active ingredients are injected directly into the mesoderm (middle layer) of the skin of the scalp. Mesotherapy is incredibly effective and nourishes the skin, boosts cell activity and stimulates hair growth.

At Health & Aesthetics, we use AQ Solutions Hair Complex + in our Mesotherapy treatments which is a pharmaceutical-grade serum that targets hair loss conditions. Using AQ’s patented Growth Factor formula, Advanced Hair Complex + works by conditioning the scalp and returning the stem cells that line each hair follicle to its former healthy state.

Viviscal Professional – Viviscal Professional is a scientifically formulated supplement that helps with hair loss and thinning hair. This is much stronger than over-the-counter tablets and treatments.
