Hair Loss / Alopecia

Hair Loss Management 

Our hair is our crown. It is a focal part of our overall look and aesthetic. When we feel like we do not look our best, we internalize that and don’t feel like ourselves. Hair loss and thinning can happen in both men and women genetically and with age. While some medications can offer hair growth for both genders, it is often a struggle to get the natural hair regrowth you’re looking for. We at Bella Wellness & Aesthetics recommend genetic testing and PRP or platelet-rich plasma injections for hair loss. This involves the injection of your plasma, which contains natural growth factors to stimulate hair growth. If you struggle with your hair falling out or thinning, contact us today to set up a consultation to see what methods work best for you.

What Is Alopecia?

There are a lot of things we can not control in life. Alopecia is a disease that develops when the body’s immune system attacks hair follicles, causing you to lose hair. This can be a hereditary trait or an outcome of stress. You can lose hair anywhere on your body, including your scalp, inside your nose, and in your ears. Some people may even lose their eyelashes or eyebrows. At Bella Wellness & Aesthetics, we offer treatments and solutions to help you get back to feeling and looking like yourself.

What Are Common Causes of Hair Loss?

There are many types of hair loss, and finding the cause can be challenging. Genetics plays the biggest role in the androgenetic loss of hair. Often, there is little we can do to prevent the process from starting, but it is essential to begin treatments early. This helps lessen hair loss and stimulates shrinking follicles. Stalling hair loss through ongoing treatment and care can make hair thinning a thing of the past. Non-scarring hair loss also happens when there is physical or chemical damage to the hair shaft, resulting in breakage. Occasionally, it may be necessary to biopsy the scalp to distinguish these conditions. Sometimes, a physician may pull a hair to examine the appearance of the hair shaft and the percentage of growing hairs. Our team is happy to become part of your journey to retain your mane if you’re interested in our help.

What Are the Signs of Hair Loss?

Typical signs of this issue include hairline changing, thinning hair, and a large amount of loss after showering or brushing. If these are some of the concerns you have questions about and want to address, our team at Bella Wellness & Aesthetics is happy to set up a consultation with you to discuss treatment options with you. 

What Is PRP Injection Therapy?

PRP injection therapy is a treatment that can have benefits both for skin renewal and hair growth. It is a simple three-step process that can produce remarkable results. We draw a small amount of your blood and use a centrifuge to separate the plasma that is rich in healing and growth factors. This is the part of the blood that clots to heal you when you are injured. We then perform microneedling on the scalp. This involves creating many micro-injuries in the scalp to “wake up” the follicles and get your hair growing again. Finally, we infuse a solution made from your plasma into the target area of the scalp.

Genetic Testing for Hair Loss

In males, baldness usually begins with progressive thinning at the hairline (receding hairline), followed by the appearance of a thinned or bald spot on the crown of your head. In the case of women with hereditary baldness, they rarely develop bald patches. Instead, they experience a general thinning of their hair, especially over the top of the head or crown, while maintaining a frontal hairline. There are plenty of supplements that attest to preventing baldness and regrowing hair which would be relatively safe to use. However, most are simply herbal remedies that will make the hair stronger and healthier but will in no way interfere with the genetic mechanisms of hair growth. At Bella Wellness & Aesthetics, we offer genetic testing to help you identify the reason for your hair loss and help you find a solution that best fits your desire.
