Causes & Solutions for Thinning Hair

Causes & Solutions for Thinning Hair

Many people are surprised to learn that of the hundreds of patients I’ve met in consultation about hair loss, nearly half are women. In fact, women make up about 40% of the 60+ million people currently suffering from thinning hair. 

In addition, women are usually the first to notice when a man in their life is troubled by his receding hairline — often encouraging him to take action or requesting a consultation on his behalf. 

From noticing a bald spot in the mirror, to finding lost hair in the shower, losing hair is distressing. If this sounds like you or someone you love, you’re not alone. The good news is patients have more options today than ever to prevent further loss and restore their hair. Let’s look closer. 

Causes

While some daily shedding is normal, excessive hair loss can be related to a number of factors. 

  • Genetics: Androgenetic alopecia is the most common cause of thinning hair in men and women. 
  • Hormones: Pregnancy, menopause, and birth control can all cause hormonal fluctuations that contribute to hair loss. 
  • Health conditions: A number of medical conditions are known to cause hair loss, including thyroid disease and anemia. 
  • Medications: Hair loss is a side effect of some medications used to treat arthritis, cancer, high blood pressure and depression. 
  • Nutrition: Vitamin deficiencies and rapid weight loss can cause thinning hair. 
  • Stress: While trauma can cause hair loss, the effects are generally temporary. 

Treatments

Successfully treating hair loss starts with identifying the cause to determine an appropriate solution. Effective treatments for thinning hair include: 

  • Medical-grade supplements such as Viviscal and Nutrafol work by addressing the root causes to strengthen and regrow hair. 
  • Topical solutions containing minoxidil are now available in improved formulas in response to patient complaints that products were too itchy, smelly, or sticky. 
  • Injectable exosome therapy utilizes growth factors to stimulate hair growth, especially in early stages of loss. 

NeoGraft “MaxGraft” Hair Restoration

The ground-breaking minimally invasive procedure offered at my practice to restore hair permanently is called NeoGraft “MaxGraft.” Unlike surgical hair transplants of the past, NeoGraft requires no scalpel and no incision, leaving no tell-tale scar. The procedure can be performed in-office with local anesthesia, and patients are usually back to work in a day or two. 

NeoGraft is unique in three important ways. First, individual hair follicles are extracted from a donor site (usually on the back of your head where hair is fuller), and carefully repositioned for the most natural-looking result. 

Second, we are able to harvest and treat the maximum number of transplanted grafts with a 97% survival rate, ensuring long-lasting results. Third, individually removing follicles with no incisions gives you a naturally restored hairline with a significantly shorter, more comfortable recovery.

After seeing patients achieve amazing results from NeoGraft “MaxGraft,” I even decided to have the procedure myself. With so many options available today to treat hair loss and restore thinning hair, now is a perfect time to get your hair back, and your confidence, too!
