Hair Loss Q&A

When should I be concerned about hair loss?

Hair loss can be upsetting, but some amount is normal. Everyone sheds hair regularly. But there are some symptoms that indicate you should be concerned about your hair loss.

Visit Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center if you notice any of the following:

  • Widening of the part in your hair
  • Increasing amount of visible scalp
  • Ponytail feels and looks thinner than before
  • Receding hairline
  • Increase in hair strands in the sink or drain

It’s important to recognize these trends early. Starting treatment now can stop further hair loss and may help you awaken your hair follicles to grow new hair. 

What is causing my hair loss?

Of the many possible reasons for hair loss, the most common include heredity, hormone fluctuations, nutritional deficiencies, stress, and childbirth. 

There are also some surprising, lesser-known causes of hair loss. For example, about 4 in 10 women experience excessive hair shedding due to brushes, combs, and other styling tools. 

The best way to get to the bottom of your hair loss is an evaluation with the hair loss experts at Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center. 

How is hair loss evaluated?

During a hair loss evaluation, your provider reviews your medical history, health issues, lifestyle, and other factors that could contribute to hair loss. 

You may also need lab tests, a microscopic scalp exam, a biopsy, and other assessments to detect the causes of your hair loss. 

What are the best treatments for hair loss?

There are many approaches for hair loss today; your best option depends on your type of hair loss. After your provider makes a diagnosis and determines the factors triggering your hair loss, they explain the treatment options best for your situation. Treatments include: 

  • Oral medications
  • Topical treatments (liquids and foams)
  • Microneedling
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections 
  • Laser therapy 

Most people who experience hair loss and use one or more of these approaches achieve some hair regrowth or at least stop further hair loss. In some cases, a procedure like a hair transplant is the best option. 

Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center is at the forefront of innovative restorative procedures like PRP for hair loss. Call the office or click the online appointment maker to learn more today.
