WAYS TO COMBAT HAIR LOSS

The words “hair loss” are enough to make us give nightmares when we are awake. Our hair gives us confidence and plays a key role in our aesthetic. People also use their hair to express themselves. It can hardly be denied that hair has its own language. When hair loss takes place, we are overwhelmed. We don’t know what to do and how to save the hair that we have. Often we will find ourselves trying different remedies to hair loss. Before jumping to the treatment it is important to understand why hair loss is happening in the first place and whether it is permanent or temporary. There are various ways in which both hair loss’ can be combated. PRP, FUE Toronto, Scalp micro pigmentation and Vitamin therapy are just some ways to fight hair loss.

FUE

Follicular Unit Extraction, also known as FUE is a hair transplantation procedure that can help you to achieve a permanent and natural-looking hairline. During the treatment, the surgeon excises micro-grafts individually. These implants are then transplanted into the thinning region. Openings are created using a hand-held rotary punch tool which is so small. These openings close up within a few days. FUE is a minimally invasive treatment and the results blend in with the remaining hair. Once the transplant is done, you can wash, cut and style your hair as you want to. Recovery is short and easy.

PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy or PRP uses the blood platelets and the various growth factors contained in it to restore hair growth and decrease inflammation. In PRP, blood is taken from the patient. This blood is then spun at high speed in a centrifuge to separate the blood platelet from the plasma. The plasma is then injected back into the scalp which promotes hair growth. It improves nourishment, and you will see denser and thicker hair growth. PRP is often performed in 3 or 4 sessions. You will begin to see the results after the first few months. It is recommended to undergo the treatment once or twice a year to maintain the results.

Scalp Micropigmentation

SMP is also referred to as hair tattoos. Semi-permanent ink is used to make dots on the scalp, which carefully mimic hair growth. It gives the look of a closely shaved head. As the ink used is semi-permanent, one will need to get a touch-up. The results begin to fade away in about 5 years.

Vitamin Therapy

Hair health is dependent on various factors which include a balanced diet. A poor diet can cause malnutrition which can lead to hair loss. Iron anaemia, restrictive diets and deficiencies take a toll on the skin, nails and hair. To combat it you will need to consume protein, iron, zinc, folic acid and other crucial vitamins. Blood tests are run to understand the nutrition level of the body. Based on that, the physician will prescribe vitamins and herbal supplements. Following the course of treatment will boost your hair growth and improve its quality.
