Causes of Hair Loss

man looking at hair in mirrorIt is commonly believed hair loss does not occur until you are older; however, 25% of men see the first signs before the age of 21 while women often experience it before the age of 40. There are several reasons it may occur, but the leading causes include:

Androgenetic Alopecia

Better known as male pattern baldness, it is the cause of 95% of hair loss in men, but it can occur in women as well.

Genetics

Hair loss in 30 million women and 50 million men is the result of genetics. Men are more likely to have the baldness gene than women.

Hair loss can be the result of other factors as well, such as:

  • Hormonal changes, like childbirth, menopause, or pregnancy.
  • Medical conditions, such as infections or thyroid problems.
  • Medications and supplements, like those used for cancer, depression, heart disease, or arthritis.
  • Radiation therapy to the head.
  • Stressful events, like physical or emotional shock.
  • Certain hairstyles and treatments, such as wearing it in a tight ponytail or hot oil treatments.
  • Poor diet, like an iron deficiency.

Treating Hair Loss

before and after hair restorationIn some cases, you can reverse hair loss using simple changes, like improving your diet, lowering your stress level, or changing medications. When home remedies fail to give you the results you want, you may be tempted to turn to medications. Although medications can be helpful, they are not right for everyone.

As an alternative to medication, you can try hair restoration with NeoGraft. This innovative procedure is effective for both men and women. The treatment works by removing donor hair from the back of your head where it is generally thicker. Follicular Unit Extraction extracts each graft to improve the take rate.

Your hair transplant surgeon then creates the recipient sites to transplant your hair to look natural, including the proper angle, direction, and orientation. Your graft is then placed on the transplant site. In as little as 12 weeks, your hair reaches a new growth cycle to produce new strands of your own hair.

NeoGraft is a revolutionary new treatment for men and women who are living with hair loss. Although it is effective, it is not right for all causes of thinning hair or baldness. After a careful evaluation process, we will determine if it is the right solution for you. Contact Precision Hair Restoration today to schedule your consultation for NeoGraft.
