Questions and answers

Alopecia and hair loss - what's the connection?

Alopeciais the medical term for hair loss. Many people mistake the word to be the same as alopecia areata, which is not true.

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease while alopecia literally means hair loss.

Does it help to take vitamins against hair loss?

As long as you are not deficient in any vitamin or mineral, taking hair vitamins for hair loss will not help.

However, if you suffer from iron deficiency, for example, hair vitamins can help strengthen your hair.

How much hair loss is normal?

Normally, we lose about 100 – 200 hairs a day. In some periods, hair loss can be more severe. But if you lose more than 200 hairs a day for a long period of time, it might be a good idea to check it out.

It may be a hormonal disorder or an underlying disease. A hair grows for about 6 years and then goes into a resting phase of 1 – 3 months before it falls off.

Can stress cause hair loss?

Yes. When the body is exposed to a lot of stress over a long period of time, the hair follicles may go into resting phase as a form of self-defence.

The hair follicles then die 3 – 6 months after the event that triggered the resting phase. This can make it difficult to trace stress as the contributing factor to hair loss. When the hair follicle dies, the hair falls off.

How can a PRP treatment help against hair loss?

With PRP, we extract the body’s own growth factors, called platelets, which we then inject into the scalp.

The growth factors enlarge the size of the hair follicle, which is often shrunken and has been for a long time (if the hair loss has been going on for a long time). As the size of the hair follicle increases, the hair follicle is able to start producing a hair again of better and stronger quality.

In this way, the treatment can effectively prevent hair loss.
