Thinning Hair Q & A

 

 

What is thinning hair?

Thinning hair is a common condition that simply means you’ve lost hair volume. Usually, thinning hair occurs as part of the natural aging process and doesn’t point to more serious issues. However, it can negatively impact your confidence and self-esteem. 

Fortunately, there’s plenty you can do to fight back. If you are experiencing the effects of thinning hair, visit Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers today.

 

What causes thinning hair?

Thinning hair is a normal part of getting older. Estimates say that everyone loses 50-100 hairs every day. When your hair falls out, it usually regrows from the same follicles. Over time, though, follicles become dormant and stop producing hair. Your hair also starts losing its color. 

  • Some of the most common causes of thinning hair include:
  • Male pattern baldness
  • Female pattern baldness
  • Alopecia areata (a condition that causes round, bald patches on the scalp)
  • Poor diet
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Stress

 

You might also experience thinning hair if you become pregnant. Usually, thinning hair caused by pregnancy grows back after giving birth.

 

When should I see a doctor about thinning hair?

If you’re experiencing thinning hair, and it negatively affects your self-esteem, don’t wait to meet with a doctor. You should also schedule an appointment with a doctor if your hair begins thinning suddenly. This is particularly true if you’ve recently changed your diet or started taking a new type of vitamin or nutritional supplement.

 

How is thinning hair diagnosed?

To diagnose thinning hair, your Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers provider examines your scalp, reviews your medical history, and asks about your symptoms. Your doctor might also ask questions about:

  • Your diet
  • Any preexisting medical conditions
  • Your family history

 

If necessary, your provider might also order laboratory testing or take a scalp biopsy. 

 

How is thinning hair treated?

Treatment for thinning hair depends on the source and severity of your condition. If you’re experiencing mild or moderate hair thinning, you might benefit from eating a healthier, more balanced diet or taking nutritional supplements.

If these measures don’t improve the health of your hair, you might benefit from a prescription medication like Minoxidil or Finasteride. 

Your provider might also recommend hair restoration treatment with the ARTAS iX™ robotic hair restoration system. The ARTAS iX uses state-of-the-art technology to restore your hair without stitches, scalpels, or sutures. It leaves no scars and provides stunning, natural-looking results.
