Cause Of Hair Loss

Losing between 50 to 100 strands per day is normal compare it to the estimated 90,000 to 150,000. If you notice visibly thinning hair or end up with big clumps of hair in your hands or drain after a shower, that is out of the ordinary and might be a reasonable cause for concern and inquiry. It can be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions, or a normal part of aging. Anyone can lose hair on their head, but it is more common in men. Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp. Hereditary hair loss with age is the most common cause of baldness.

Main Cause of Hair Loss

  • Hormonal – The most common cause of hair loss is hormonal. If there is a history in your family of male or female pattern baldness you can expect that it may happen to you, too. Hereditary baldness itself is primarily hormonal.
  • Post-Pregnancy – The body undergoes major hormonal changes during pregnancy, which at first seem great for your locks since they often become lush and shiny. But the hormonal fluctuations lead to hair loss after delivery.
  • Hereditary Auto-Immune Disorders – Sometimes, hair loss can be the sign of an auto-immune disorder called alopecia areata, which is often hereditary. In that instance, the body directly attacks the hair follicles and stops their hair growth, which leads to bald patches and loss of lashes and brow hairs.
  • Inflammation – People rarely realize that inflammation, especially because of skin conditions like seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis, can also lead to hair loss. The irritation can damage both the hair follicles and the root of the hair, causing it to shed. The hair loss will usually stop once the inflammation is under control, but in some cases, the hair may not grow back properly if the hair follicle becomes damaged or scarred.
  • Stress – Extreme or chronic stress often leads to sudden hair. During times of stress, the body produces higher amounts of cortisol, a hormone that can disrupt the growth phase of the hair, causing it to enter its resting phase prematurely.

What is to do?

Micro-Needling procedure has proven to increase your natural production of the protein. It leads to tiny insults in the dermis, or micro-injuries causing minor inflammation. This prompts the skin to stimulate collagen production in response. It also brings blood flow and nutrients to the scalp and induces new stem cells that support hair growth. Scientific studies have proven this to be true. In a randomized, blind study on Micro-Needling in alopecia patients in 2012, researchers found that 82 percent of patients reported more than 50 percent improvement within 12 weeks. Micro-Needling is a safe and a promising tool in hair stimulation and is useful to treat hair loss.

Treatment Frequency: Clinical studies show that Micro-Needling treatment requires a minimum of 5 sessions to stimulate hair growth. We recommend starting with an intensive course of treatments every 2 weeks for the first 2-3 months.
