If there’s one thing that we know can make folks lose their self-confidence and feel ashamed, it’s hair loss. Prevalent in both women and men due to a variety of factors, the condition can lead to social isolation, depression, the development of unexpected phobias, and even anxiety. We know how sensitive of a subject this can be and, at the Ottawa Vein and Cosmetic Medical Clinic, our team has what it takes to at least minimize the effects of hair loss if not prevent them entirely.

Causes of Hair Loss
Hair loss isn’t limited to the scalp; eyebrows and eyelashes are also known to shed and not recover in select circumstances. The most common cause is genetics; merely knowing that you possess a gene that could cause hair loss can bring about stress and anxiety. A lack of nutrition and hydration to the scalp, such as wearing hats all the time, can lead to it as well. Stress is the other significant contributor, and it can also lead to early greying. Medical problems such as low thyroid hormone or anemia should be ruled out as a possible cause of hair loss. Of course, more obvious causes of hair loss include chemotherapy, burns, and scarring where new follicles can’t break through the dermis or obtain nutrients to grow. The loss rate may be gradual or rapid, and it’s more common in men.
Our Treatment Solutions
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the more effective ways to combat hair loss. It harnesses the natural plasma in your bloodstream to stimulate a stem cell response through a boost in nutrients, growth factors, and active proteins. Alternatively, you might consider products such as the Rapid Eye Lash growth serum or mesotherapy. The latter involves multiple shallow injections of plant extracts, essential vitamins, homeopathic remedies, and pharmaceutical medications to strengthen hair follicles and encourage regrowth.
