Losing your hair can be very distressing, but there are treatments that can help to prevent further loss and which encourage your hair to grow back. The right hair loss treatment for you will depend on the reasons why your hair is thinning or falling out. It will usually take a combination of treatments and plenty of patience to achieve results, but it is often possible to restore lost hair.
Many people experience some form of hair loss, but the reasons for this loss can vary. Some people lose their hair in a recognisable pattern as part of the ageing process. Others may have an autoimmune problem or skin condition that is causing patchy hair loss. Identifying the cause of hair loss is the first step towards finding an effective hair loss treatment in London. Different kinds of hair loss require different approaches.
The most common form of hair loss is male pattern baldness, which affects half of all men by the age of 50. It generally begins during your 20s or 30s around the hairline and on the crown. It progresses gradually, but some people may end up losing most or all of their hair. Male pattern baldness often runs in families and it is caused by an imbalance in the male hormone testosterone. This kind of hair loss is therefore known as androgenic alopecia. Androgenic refers to a male hormone, while alopecia means hair loss. Since it is so common, and because many men are prepared for it because they already know that it runs in their family, male pattern baldness doesn't always get treated. However, if you are feeling self-conscious about your hair loss or if it is making you unhappy, help is at hand. Many kinds of hair loss treatments have been developed specifically to treat male pattern hair loss. Medications such as minoxidil and finasteride can often encourage hair to grow back, as can Viviscal nutritional supplements. Treatments such as microneedling and platelet rich plasma (PRP) have also proven very effective for this kind of hair loss, and it is even possible to have a hair transplant.
Female pattern baldness is less common than male pattern baldness, but it does affect many women. Losing your hair can actually be more distressing if you are a woman, because it can be so unexpected. Female pattern hair loss doesn't seem to be as hereditary as male pattern balding, but there is some evidence of a genetic component. Like male pattern baldness, it is caused by an imbalance in testosterone levels. Although testosterone is considered a male hormone, it is present in women too. Testosterone levels are usually higher after the menopause or if you have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Hence these factors can affect your chances of losing your hair. Women's hair loss tends to occur in a slightly different pattern to male hair loss. It usually appears as a gradual thinning on top of the scalp, while the front of the hairline remains unaffected. The same kind of hair loss treatment can help with female pattern balding as for hair loss in men. However, medications like minoxidil don't always work as well for women. Other treatments, such as microneedling, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and Viviscal supplements are just as effective for female pattern baldness.
Hair loss isn't always linked to testosterone and the ageing process. In some cases, patchy hair loss can appear anywhere on the body due to alopecia Areata. Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly starts to attack your hair. The resulting bald patches are most noticeable when they appear on the scalp, but they can affect other parts of your body too. You might even lose your eyebrows or eyelashes. The hair often grows back in a few months, but Alopecia Areata can last much longer. It can also spread over time, sometimes affect the whole body. The condition most often appears in people between the ages of about 15 and 30. It seems to run in some families, and it can be linked with other conditions such as thyroid problems, vitamin D deficiencies, or psoriasis. The most common hair loss treatment in London for Alopecia Areata is corticosteroid injections or lotions. Other alopecia treatments, such as minoxidil, microneedling, platelet rich plasma (PRP), and Viviscal supplements can also encourage hair to grow back.
Other conditions can also cause hair to thin or to fall out in patches. Scarring alopecia is particularly serious, as it causes the hair follicles to be permanently destroyed. It is often linked with other conditions such as lichen planus or discoid lupus. You may need additional treatment to address the underlying cause of male or female alopecia. Your doctor can advise you on the best approach for treatment of male or female alopecia.
Once the cause of your hair loss has been established, you will be able to begin the appropriate hair loss medication. At the Rejuvence Clinic, we usually recommend a combination of three different treatments for male and female hair loss or for Alopecia Areata. You may also want to consider additional treatments, such as medication, immunotherapy, or even a hair transplant. The hair loss treatment for men and women we offer in London can work well in combination with these other approaches.
Microneedling uses a special device called a dermaroller to stimulate the natural healing response of your skin. This technique can help with a wide range of problems, including hair loss. The dermaroller uses a set of very small, fine needles to make tiny micro-injuries in the affected area. The treatment takes about half an hour and an anaesthetic cream will be applied so that you don't feel any pain. Although the individual injuries are so small that they can't even be seen, your body will react by initiating the healing process. Your hair follicles will be rejuvenated along with the rest of your skin, so you should see improved hair growth in about three months if you complete the recommended series of treatments. Microneedling has proven to be a very effective as a hair loss treatment, particularly when combined with platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections.
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a concentrated dose of the platelets from your own blood. It is prepared by taking a blood sample and separating out the different cell types by spinning it in a centrifuge. The concentrated platelets will be returned by microinjecting them directly into the affected area. Platelets play an important role in the healing process. The platelet rich plasma (PRP) will trigger the release of certain chemicals, stimulate the fibroblasts, and encourage growth and repair. Each treatment session takes about 60 to 90 minutes, and you will usually need 4 to 6 sessions over at least three months to see results. If you complete all the sessions, PRP can be a very successful hair loss treatment, resulting in increased hair growth and thickness.
Viviscal supplements contain nutrients that can promote hair growth. The supplements include amino acids needed for hair growth, Biotin or vitamin B7 to help you absorb more amino acids from your food, and apple extract to help your hair grow thicker. The supplement needs to be taken twice a day for three to six months. You should see an improvement in hair growth and thickness, as well as a reduction in the amount of hair being shed. Viviscal supplements are particularly effective for male and female pattern baldness, and they can work well alongside other forms of hair loss treatment. They are very effective in combination with microneedling and PRP, but they can also help make hair transplants more successful.
Losing your hair can have a significant effect on your confidence and quality of life. If you are feeling self-conscious, distressed, or even depressed about your hair loss, you don\'t have to put up with it. Make an appointment to discuss hair loss treatments in London with a doctor at Rejuvence Clinic.
During your initial consultation, you will have a chance to discuss your concerns and to talk about the different hair loss treatment options that are available. The doctor will also conduct a careful examination of the affected areas to work out what is causing your hair loss. This may include the use of a 3D scanning camera as well as a dermascopic evaluation. Sometimes additional tests may be required to identify the type of hair loss.
Once we know what is wrong, we can provide personalised advice on hair loss or alopecia treatment at our hair loss treatment clinic in London. We usually recommend that you start taking Viviscal supplements, and we will often suggest trying microneedling and PRP too. We will create a bespoke hair loss medication plan so that you know how many sessions you will need, what the treatments will involve, and when you should expect to see results.
Hair loss treatment can be very effective, particularly when different treatments are used together. However, you do need to be patient. Treatments for hair loss typically take a few months to work and sometimes your hair won't respond at all to a particular treatment. A change of approach may help, but there are no guarantees. Even the most effective treatments don't work for everybody. However, our combination of microneedling, platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment and Viviscal nutritional supplements has helped many people.
