Why are you losing your hair?
In the majority of cases hair loss is hereditary, whether it’s male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness. Other causes of hair loss include:
- Hormonal changes (pregnancy, menopause, thyroid issues)
- Some medical conditions (alopecia areata, scalp infections)
- A side effect of certain medications (cancer, arthritis, antidepressants, heart, gout, and hypertension medications)
- Radiation therapy
- Hair treatments causing inflammation
- Tight hairstyles
- Dramatic weight loss
Natural remedies for hair loss
One of the most basic and holistic measures that can help you maintain your hair is to supplement your diet with vitamins and minerals that promote healthy hair growth. A deficiency in these vitamins and minerals can lead to thinning hair or balding. The vitamins and minerals your body needs for healthy hair include:
- Essential fatty acids
- Folic Acid
- Vitamin A
- B complex
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
With vitamins and mineral supplements, more is not always better. If you take too much of these vitamins and minerals, it can produce the opposite effect and trigger even more hair loss. Your hair- growth supplements should only be taken in the quantity directed.
Injections for hair loss
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections can be an effective way to regrow hair and prevent future hair loss. Dr. Jacono recommends a series of three injection treatments performed over six months. It is recommended that you undergo a series of injections at least once a year. Patients who have undergone these non-surgical hair restoration treatments in NYC have seen hair regrowth and slowed hair loss.
Low-level laser therapy for hair growth
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), also called “cold laser therapy”, is a treatment for thinning hair rather than baldness, as it is not effective in balding areas. Low-energy lasers have been used for over thirty years to accelerate healing in wounds or burns.
Harnessing the healing powers of light: LLLT
LLLT for hair restoration involves the application of cool laser light energy to the scalp to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss. LLLT is a form of photo-biotherapy in which the light is absorbed by the cells to stimulate protein synthesis. The laser light applied to the hair follicles can reverse hair miniaturization (when the hair strands shrink over time, eventually becoming dormant) and hair loss. LLLT has been shown to result in the growth of thicker hair strands and a fuller look. LLLT is FDA-cleared to treat androgenetic (hormone-related) hair loss in men. Recent studies have shown that LLLT produces results similar to medications when used over the short term for both men and women. For our patients, we recommend the HairMax LaserComb, a home-use LLLT device that is FDA-cleared for both men and women.
