Hair loss is a normal everyday function that many of us don’t even notice, losing between 50 and 100 hairs a day as part of a healthy cycle that allows for new hair to grow through.
Losing some hair is not something that we should usually worry about, but it may be worth some medical investigation if the loss is quite significant.
Both males and females can be affected by ‘Pattern baldness’, a permanent type of hair loss that is most likely to run in the family. However, some excessive hair loss can be as a result from stress, hormonal changes (as with pregnancy, adolescence and menopause), weight loss, iron deficiency or an underlying medical condition.
The hair can come out in clumps or may even go unnoticed, leaving behind a noticeable bald patch.
Losing one’s hair can have a huge impact on the affected person’s well-being, as the hair can be a big part of our physical appearance and creating a personal image. Many people experiencing hair loss find ways to hide the condition, using hats or hairstyles to mask the condition so it goes unnoticed.
At Ambra Aesthetic Clinic PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy can be used to help with producing a healthy growth cycle of the hair. By using the body’s own proteins, the follicles can be stimulated, encouraging the growth of new hair in the affected areas.Book a Consultation
