Hair loss, or alopecia, is a condition affecting the scalp or the whole body. While many people think it’s an issue affecting males only, a great deal of women also suffer from hair loss. Children may also experience hair loss. Hair loss can be a symptom of a variety of issues such as thyroid malfunction, diabetes, or lupus. In addition, certain medications or medical treatments like chemotherapy may also result in hair loss. In some people, hair loss is hereditary, or results from high stress, a low-protein diet, or poor nutrition.
It’s normal to lose as much as 100 hairs from the scalp each day. However, these hairs grow back. If you notice your hair thinning in one area or bald patches, you may be suffering from hair loss that requires medical attention. In addition, if your hair is coming out in clumps or patches, it’s important to see your doctor right away.
Although hair loss can be a troubling condition, many causes of this problem can be addressed and treated. Meeting with a doctor such as Dr. T. Joseph Raoof who specializes in dermatology is vital to effectively diagnosing, treating, and preventing further hair loss.
There are a wide range of proven treatments for handling hair loss depending on the source of the problem. In many cases such as stress or poor nutrition, treating the underlying problem will drastically improve hair growth and retention. For other causes, corticosteroids may be administered by injecting bald patches, PRP treatment, applying topically, or by ingesting orally to stimulate hair growth.
What’s more, Dr. Raoof and his team of chemists have spent three years conducting clinical research to develop a revolutionary three-step hair loss system. The Thinning Hair Treatment system includes shampoo, conditioner, and serum specially formulated to prevent and stop hair loss and stimulate the growth of new hair.
