What It Is
Hair loss, also known as alopecia, refers to the loss of hair from the head or a certain part of the body. The severity of your hair loss can vary and this can be confined to a small area or a larger part of the body. Alopecia is one of the most upsetting conditions to suffer from for both men and women. It can be distressing, debilitating and have a significant impact on your happiness and confidence. There are various methods of combatting hair loss, and our professionals at La Fuente will assist you every step of the way.
Why It Happens
Hair loss is a completely natural process that happens to all of us to some extent or another – most of us lose between 50-100 hairs a day! It is completely normal to lose hair and it shouldn’t be something you worry yourself about. However, if you feel that your hair loss is starting to accelerate then it could be a sign of an underlying medical condition. Baldness tends to run in families and is the leading cause of hair loss. There are also various other triggers such as stressful periods of time, weight loss, hormonal shifts and a number of illnesses.
How it can be treated
There are countless hair loss remedies and products available on the market – yet, finding an effective solution is never easy as what works for someone else might not work for you. Undergoing a Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant is a safe and effective way to treat this problem. Minoxidil is a solution that can stimulate hair growth when it comes to male baldness and can also help women with thinning hair. Propecia is another effective treatment and comes in the form of a prescription tablet that should be taken once a day – this can prevent and even reverse some bouts of hair loss.
