Thinning hair or hair loss can happen to women and men at any stage of adulthood, and for some, it can even begin during their teenage years. Hair follicles produce new hair at an average rate of six inches per year, but that hair growth rate decreases as we age. As a result, you may notice the hair on your scalp thinning, a bald spot developing on the top of the head, and/or a receding hairline. For women specifically, it is common to experience overall hair thinning.
What Causes Thinning Hair?
This emotionally disheartening concern can be caused or sped up by a variety of factors, including:
- Changes in hormones
- Unhealthy hair habits
- Poor diet
- Certain medical conditions
Hair Restoration Treatment Options
At Nouveau MedSpas, we have a variety of hair restoration options, including personal growth factors (PGF), Biotin shots, and topical and oral medications. We often recommend combining two or more methodologies for the most effective results.
Personal growth factors are proteins in our blood that help signal the body to repair and build new tissue, making them highly effective at stimulating hair growth. We use the AQUAGOLD fine touch microinjection system to deliver a serum we create from your blood that has a high concentration of these growth factors (about five to 10 times more than are typically found in the blood) into your area of hair loss. We also offer Biotin intramuscular (IM) shots to help reverse hair loss, which delivers a high concentration of biotin (vitamin B7) to support healthy hair growth. Our medications include Bimatoprost, Spironolactone, Minoxidil and Propecia, which work in different ways to promote thicker, fuller hair.
Unwanted hair can be more than just a minor inconvenience; it can be a real concern that impacts your daily life. Traditional methods like shaving and waxing might offer a temporary fix, but the relief is short-lived and tough on your skin. Razor burns, redness and dreaded ingrown hairs are just some of the downsides, and before you know it, you’re back to square one, needing to shave or wax all over again. Whether it’s on your legs, underarms, bikini area, face, back or chest, that stubborn hair seems to come back almost as quickly as you remove it.
Hair Removal Treatment Options
If you’re seeking a more lasting solution to unwanted hair, we offer electrolysis and laser hair removal at Nouveau MedSpas. Electrolysis targets individual hair follicles to stop hair growth and is known for its ability to provide permanent results. This technique uses an electric current to destroy the hair root, making it a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is another option, offering permanent hair reduction in the treated area. The process uses intense heat to damage the hair follicles, inhibiting future hair growth.
