COMMON HAIR LOSS CAUSES

We can lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day, often without noticing. Hair loss isn’t usually anything to be worried about, but occasionally it can be a sign of a medical condition. Some types of hair loss are permanent, like male and female pattern baldness. This type of hair loss usually runs in the family. Other types of hair loss may be temporary.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE HAIR LOSS FOLLICLE RESTORATION THERAPY

To start with, we suggest microneedling your scalp once a week for the first month, then twice a week in the second month. After that, you can maintain your strong hair follicle results by having one treatment every month to maximise your hair growth potential.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CONSUTATION?

Your consultant will diagnose and discuss your hair loss concerns in your consultation. You will have a medical check to establish what caused the hair loss and how we can reverse it. If all is well and there is nothing preventing you having treatment, we will design for you a personalised hair growth treatment plan to achieve your hair growth goals.. You may be treated on the day or an appointment will be booked for you to return for treatment.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?

The scalp will be massaged to encourage blood circulation. The size of the needles can range from less than 1 millimetre to a few millimetres in length. Tiny micro channels are created with a hand held medical grade derma roller device. This is rolled along the treatment area, creating micro injuries. The micro injuries provoke the release of the growth factors that promote the hair to grow by directly stimulating hair growth as a result of the small micro injuries caused. Specialised medical grade serums are placed inside the micro channels to nourish the hair follicles creating the perfect growth grounds. A 640nm wavelength LED red light session will follow the treatment to trigger a growth boost to kick start the hair growth.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY TREATMENT?

WHAT AFTERCARE IS INVOLVED?

Avoid strenuous exercises that cause sweating as well as jacuzzi’s, saunas, swimming and steam baths for up to 3 days.

Avoid picking, scratching, rubbing or touching the area unnecessarily. If the area feels itchy this is a good sign of healing. You will be vulnerable to infection so sleep on a satin or silk pillow case and change the pillow case every day. 

Sleep on your back with the head of the bed elevated to minimize swelling.

HOW TO BOOST THE HAIR GROWTH DURING RECOVERY

You might benefit from applying minoxidil or finasteride (24 hours) following your treatment sessions or a natural hair growth-promoting oil such as castor or grapeseed oil to nourish the freshly punctured follicles. Your skin absorbs at least 80% of the oil’s nutrients compared to 7-10% in a standard application, without a derma roller.

SIDE EFFECTS

Oozing from the micro wounds, redness,swelling, tenderness, flaking of old scalp skin all will subside inn 7 days

THE RISKS

Is not suitable for pregnant patients, diabetics, heart patients, epileptics, anyone with a history of eczema or psoriasis, those taking blood thinners.

REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT MICRONEEDLING AT HOME

There are significant downsides to at-home derma roller treatments. These include:

-not knowing the right size needles to use

-not being able to see certain parts of your own scalp, such as the back of your head

-not being able to target the desired areas as well as a professional

-not knowing how to use the roller properly resulting in scarring

-not knowing when to stop

-not knowing how much pressure to use and how to properly roll the roller

COMMON TYPES OF HAIR LOSS

MALE PATTERN HAIR LOSS (MPHL)

Also known as androgenic alopecia and male pattern baldness, is hair loss that occurs due to an underlying susceptibility of hair follicles to shrinkage due to the influence of androgenic hormones.

The Norwood scale is the most common used scale for self diagnosis of hair loss/hair thinning ranging from stages 1-7. It is a good indication of baldness for consultations and treatments that may be required. Below is an overview showing the different stages of hair loss and hair thinning.

Whatever stage of hair loss/hair thinning you have suffered Schon aesthetic is here to help  non-surgically replace your hair.

THE NORWOOD SCALE

FEMALE PATTERN HAIR LOSS

Do women lose their hair
in a similar pattern to men?

The Hamilton-Norwood scale is a common measurement tool used to measure baldness in men for those suffering from Androgenetic Alopecia in the form of Male Pattern Baldness, but what about women? Do women lose their hair in a similar pattern to men?

Though it is true that some women lose hair in a similar manner as men, this is not true for all women.

The Ludwig and Savin Scale is intended as a measurement tool for women who suffer from Androgenetic alopecia in the form of female pattern baldness to determine their level of balding. It is a good indication of baldness for consultations and treatments that may be required.

Whatever stage of hair loss/hair thinning you have suffered Schon aesthetic is here to help. 

THE LUDWIG AND SAVIN SCALE

Alopecia affects males and females of all ages and can commence at any stage of one’s life. It can vary in appearance from tiny random bald patches to total baldness. Although the condition does not cause the sufferer any physical pain, it can be the source of deep emotional distress.

Here at Schon aesthetic we offer a free hair loss diagnosis to all clients.
Our Alopecia treatments are 100% safe and side effect free.

There are different forms of Alopecia. Listed below are the main types and their characteristics:

ALOPECIA AREATA (AA)

Alopecia Areata is an auto-immune condition which causes patchy hair loss. It can result in a single bald patch or extensive patches. This is a common condition, where normal hair growth is interrelated with totally bald, circular or oval patches. Generally AA can begin during childhood and reoccur throughout a person’s lifetime. In many cases, the condition is confined to one or two spots, but it can spread and become Alopecia totalis.

ALOPECIA TOTALIS (AT) & UNIVERSALIS (AU

Alopecia totalis is a more advanced form of Alopecia Areata which results in total loss of hair. In rare cases, Alopecia Totalis can become Alopecia Universalis, where the hair is lost completely on the head, face and body.

ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA (AGA)
Also known as male or female pattern baldness. It is a thinning of the hair to an almost transparent state, in both men or women. It is thought to be a hereditary form of hair loss and is the most common type of progressive hair loss.

IMG_256

TRACTION ALOPECIA
Traction Alopecia is usually due to excessive pulling or tension on hair shafts as a result of certain hair styles. Hair loss depends on the way the hair is being pulled.

THINNING HAIR 

Telogen effluvium (hair loss), Is the most common hair loss. This is where the hair shedding cycle becomes stuck at this stage for too long resulting in significant hair thinning all over the scalp. This is more noticeable when you wash your hair. You will not have patches of hair loss (bald patches) but rather a generalised thinning.

The causes of Telogen effluvium can be a major stressful event for example, childbirth or major surgery can keep your hair cycle stuck in the Telogen phase. At Schon aesthetic we simply trigger the growth factors when the hair is stuck in this phase to guide the follicles back into their correct growth cycle.

PREGNANCY HAIR LOSS

Telogen Effluvium is the excessive shedding of hair that occurs one to five months following pregnancy. This is not uncommon, as it affects somewhere between 40 to 50% of women.

Hair loss that is connected to pregnancy usually occurs after delivery. During pregnancy, an increased number of hair follicles go into the resting phase, which is part of the normal hair loss cycle.

The most common period of hair loss occurs approximately three months after delivery. The rise in hormones during pregnancy keeps you from losing your hair.

Hair loss may result from any one or more of the following:

Discontinuation of birth control pills or any other hormonal type of birth control method

-Miscarriage or stillbirth

-Hormonal imbalance

Along with a lot of other changes that occur as part of pregnancy, hormones can often cause hair to fall out. Hair loss during pregnancy differs greatly – what may be minimal in one woman, may be very noticeable in another. Hair loss really does vary from pregnancy to pregnancy, even in the same individual.
