The Reason You’re Losing Your Hair and How To Get It Back

Hair loss in brush

Experiencing hair loss can be traumatic, especially when the loss begins almost out of nowhere and you are not prepared. Although men are most likely to lose their hair and are most commonly associated with hair loss, it is not specific to the — women can, and do, lose their hair as well.

And with recent advances in hair restoration technology – advances that make Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center & Cosmetic Center one of the only locations to provide such technology in the South Florida area, hair regrowth is much more feasible.

Rather than undergoing surgery for hair transplants, there is new innovative laser treatment available on the market that serves as a painless, no-surgery-needed alternative. The Sunetics hair regrowth laser uses low-level laser light to saturate the scalp and energize the hair follicles, which then stimulates the follicles and helps them grow back. It was cleared by the FDA in 2014, and it is now available at our Deerfield Beach dermatologist office, Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center!

Sunetics is an ideal alternative treatment for both men and women, as the laser penetrates the skin to actually heal the hair follicles and help them repair to grow new, strong, silky smooth hair. There is nothing drastic to worry about the way you may have to when taking pills for hair growth, such as Propecia. This particular treatment can cause unwanted side effects for men, such as impotence, and has an even worse effect on women (i.e, infertility, among other hormonal effects) making it a nearly impossible treatment option for them. Sunetics, on the other hand, is both completely safe and side-effect free for anyone.

With Sunetics now available in our office, Dr. Jason Green is able to help those who experience normal hair loss, which is something that happens quite often to more people than you may think.

Typically, a person will lose about 100 strands of hair per day. This is normal. It doesn’t result in a cause for concern as the hair loss is usually not noticeable since new hair is growing in at the same time. However, if you find yourself losing much more than this on a regular basis and are starting to notice bald spots, there may be something else causing the hair loss.

Hair loss is sometimes hereditary, but there are instances in which other underlying causes are the culprit.

Some of the non-hereditary reasons for hair loss include hormonal changes and medical conditions such as alopecia and scalp infections, different types of medications and supplements, radiation therapy to the head, and stressful situations and events that cause a physical or emotional shock. Even certain hairstyles and treatments can cause hair loss.

There are a number of things that can increase your chances of experiencing hair loss. Your family history is one of the most important factors, but your age and stress level also has a lot to do with it, as well as whether you have lost a significant amount of weight at a period in your life or have certain medical conditions.  

Hair loss comes in many different ways. It could appear as a gradual thinning of the hair on top of the head, or look like small bald spots. Hair might become loose, and you may find yourself pulling out handfuls when combing or washing your hair. You could experience hair loss all over the entire body, or in patches on the head.
