THINNING HAIR TREATMENT
Best Thinning Hair Treatment
Our hairline naturally recedes with time. By the age of 40, about 40% of men notice balding and thinning areas, most commonly along the forehead. Hair loss may recede from the frontal region or involve the top of the head. In women, hair loss may either be diffuse, causing generalized alopecia with thinning hair everywhere on the head, or localized closer to the frontal region.
What is causing my hair loss?
Thinning hair treatment options
While androgenic alopecia causes most hair loss cases, it is also important to understand that thinning hair and hair loss may have many other causes. Various medications can cause hair loss, including treatments for gout, depression, hypertension, and hormonal imbalance.
Medical conditions can cause thinning hair and hair loss as well. These might include thyroid disease, anemia, protein deficiency, and vitamin deficiencies. Chemotherapy may cause a temporary or even permanent loss of hair.
Sometimes, though, hair loss and thinning results from typical aging effects. This more permanent hair loss or thinning can be addressed by new technology that creates a more natural result and drastically reduces the recovery time compared to traditional hair transplant therapies.
