Are you experiencing excessive hair loss that’s leading to balding or causing a receding hairline? We know how challenging this must be, but rest assured you’re not alone, and you don’t have to struggle any longer. In the UK, hair loss is one of the most common conditions, affecting over 70% of men over the age of 70 and 50% of women over the age of 50. We understand how difficult it is to see large amounts of your hair falling out every day and experience thinning hair as growth diminishes.
But it’s time to get excited about your hair again because we have incredible hair loss treatments that are clinically proven to work by stimulating hair growth from deep within your hair follicles, resulting in hair that’s thicker, healthier, and stronger.
What is hair loss?
Did you know it’s normal to lose up to 100 strands of hair every day? This is part of the normal growth cycle, where the strands that you shed are replaced by new ones so you can maintain a full head of hair. However, if you’re losing hair with fewer or no strands growing back in its place, it’s a condition we refer to as alopecia or hair loss. Alopecia involves the partial or complete loss of hair on the scalp or other parts of the body, either temporarily or permanently. Adults and even children, irrespective of gender, can experience their hair falling out due to a variety of factors. However, it’s more common in men.
What causes hair loss?
Understanding why you might be experiencing hair loss is the first step in finding a solution. Several factors can play a role, such as your genes, certain medications, illnesses like thyroid disease, dietary choices, hormonal imbalances, stress, specific hairstyles, or it’s simply just a natural part of ageing. The most common culprit behind hair loss is Androgenetic Alopecia, which manifests as female and male pattern baldness. Essentially, it’s often passed down through your family genes, unfolding gradually and following specific patterns, like a receding hairline in men or thinning hair at the crown in women.
Other prevalent reasons for hair loss include Alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease triggering hair loss on the head and body; Telogen effluvium, brought on by sudden hormonal changes or stress, causing a rapid shedding of hair in a short period; and Anagen effluvium, a response to certain medications such as chemotherapy.
How to stop hair loss?
Cardiff Cosmetic Clinic specialises in two highly effective and innovative hair loss treatments, namely Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment and Polynucleotides (PNs). While these treatments can be administered separately, we strongly recommend combining them to maximise the benefits of complete hair regeneration. In the PRP process, we draw a small amount of blood from your arm, spin it in a centrifuge to isolate platelet-rich plasma, and then inject this concentrated plasma into your scalp. Rich in growth factors, PRP enhances blood supply, stimulates hair follicles, and triggers active hair growth.
Alongside PRP, our Polynucleotide treatment is derived from fish DNA and contains molecules that are rich in regenerative properties. When combined with PRP, it enhances the benefits even further for boosting hair growth, blood circulation, nourishment, hair follicle health, and tissue repair. So if you’ve been searching for how to stop hair loss or a baldness cure, you’ve found the best.
