What Is Hair Loss?

Hair loss is an extremely common occurrence among men and women. This can be due to various reasons, such as genetics, aging, stress, medical conditions, or environmental factors. Hair loss can either happen slowly as you age or rapidly, depending on your follicles, hair type, and lifestyle. Hair loss can occur anywhere on the body, but the main treatment area that patients are concerned with is the scalp.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Some causes of hair loss include but are not limited to:

  • Aging
  • Genetics
  • Medical conditions, such as alopecia
  • An imbalance in hormone levels
  • Environmental factors, such as heavy pollution or humidity

PRP For Hair Restoration (Platelet Rich Plasma)

The Skin Technique clinic offers PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy) to treat hair loss concerns in a minimally invasive, effective fashion. PRP is a hair restoration treatment that is growing in popularity. This non-surgical treatment uses the patient’s blood to promote hair growth. PRP therapy is an effective and safe treatment for hair loss. It is one of the many procedures performed at the Skin Technique clinic in Downtown Vancouver.

PRP for hair restoration uses innovative technology whereby a client’s blood is drawn to extract the PRP and then injected into the scalp where hair loss/thinning is present. Platelets are the components of our blood that contain multiple growth factors and nutrients. This procedure stimulates new growth of the hair.

How is Hair Loss different for Men vs. Women?

When you hear about hair loss treatments, you assume they are only for men. Although women experience hair loss less than men, it is still a prevalent concern and can result in severely affected self-esteem. A certain gene causes hair loss and circulates androgens, which must be present for male or female baldness to occur, but hair loss is often a symptom of male hormones being imbalanced, such as testosterone or DHT. 

While 55% of women are likely to experience hair loss, up to 85% of men will experience some form of hair loss in their lifetime. Thankfully, Skin Technique proudly treats everyone to ensure they can look and feel their best.
