Understanding Hormonal Hair Loss

Hormonal imbalances can be the culprits behind many cases of hair thinning and loss, impacting both men and women. When hormones are out of balance, particularly in conditions like androgenetic alopecia or thyroid disorders, the effects can manifest in the health and vitality of your hair. At Charles Medical Group, we understand the distress that hormonal hair loss can cause and are dedicated to providing expert strategies and treatments to combat this issue.

Medical Interventions for Hormonal Hair Loss

Hormonal hair loss occurs when certain hormones in the body are either deficient or excess. In men, androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, is often driven by dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of testosterone. Women can also suffer from androgenetic alopecia, where the hair loss pattern may be more diffuse across the scalp. Thyroid disorders, both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, can also lead to hair thinning due to the pivotal role the thyroid gland plays in regulating the body’s metabolism, which includes hair growth cycles.

Non-Surgical Treatments

At Charles Medical Group, we offer an array of non-surgical treatments that can further aid in stabilizing hair loss and encouraging hair growth. LaserCap® therapy uses low-level laser light to energize the hair follicles, promoting improved circulation and hair density. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is another innovative treatment where growth factors from your own blood are concentrated and re-injected into the scalp, fostering a healthier environment for hair growth.

Lifestyle Adjustments to Support Hormonal Balance

Diet plays a crucial role in managing hormonal balance. Incorporating a variety of nutrients, including proteins, vitamins, and minerals, can help support hair health. Stress management is equally essential; practices such as regular exercise, meditation, or yoga can reduce the body’s stress response, which in turn can help regulate hormone levels.

Advanced Hair Restoration Procedures

For those seeking a more long-term solution to hormonally induced hair loss, Charles Medical Group offers state-of-the-art hair restoration procedures.
