Common Causes of Hair Loss – and an Unexpected Solution
Nobody wants to experience hair loss. But it happens much too frequently, and until recently, there wasn’t much hope for anyone dealing with hair loss, regardless of the reason. Regenerative therapies, such as PRP Hair Treatment & Restoration in Cincinnati, exosomes, and stem cells, provide new hope to those who are struggling with hair loss due to a variety of factors. What are a few typical reasons for hair loss? And how are they to be handled?
Hair loss and hormones
Women may have hair loss and thinning due to hormonal changes during pregnancy, perimenopause, and menopause. Hair loss can also be brought on by excessive levels of the stress hormone cortisol, by abnormally high or low thyroid hormone levels, and by high levels of testosterone. In women, hormonal hair loss frequently begins as a gradual widening of the part line, whereas in men, it typically begins as a receding hairline.
Although minoxidil and other topical therapies are frequently advised to treat hormonal hair loss, they will be ineffective if the underlying hormonal imbalance is not addressed. Hormone levels and their metabolites can be detected using specialized laboratory procedures. The key to the issue is frequently found in the metabolite levels. Then, hormone levels can be changed to restore balance.
Once hormone levels are in check, a regeneration procedure can aid in bringing back the fullness of the hair. Although PRP can help certain early-stage instances, stem cell and exosome treatments are the most successful.
The medical term for this type of hair loss is androgenic alopecia, which also has a genetic component. (The belief that states you should gaze at your mother’s father may not be helpful because fathers can also transmit the gene along!) An yearly “booster treatment” may be required for patients whose genes make them prone to ongoing hair loss in order to replace lost hair and promote new growth.
Hair Loss Caused by Medications
A variety of drugs can cause hair thinning or loss as a side effect. That includes often prescribed drugs for high blood pressure, gout, arthritis, cancer, depression, and cancer.

Of course, stopping the drug and looking for a replacement are the initial steps in treating hair loss caused by pharmaceutical use. Following the discontinuation of the drug, treating the scalp with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or exosomes can help the follicles return to their pre-medication level of health and promote the growth of new hair.
Hair Loss and Psoriasis
Psoriasis is an autoimmune illness that affects the skin and, if it is severe enough, can harm the hair follicles, resulting in hair loss. The follicles are just gone and there is no way to generate hair if it has progressed to the point where it produces scar tissue.
The best way to cure psoriasis is internally. The most potent regenerative medicine, IV exosomes, can be used to treat it. If the damage is discovered in time, vitamins and minerals alone may be sufficient to repair hair growth. IV treatment options also include these.
Like psoriasis, alopecia aerata is an autoimmune condition meaning “patchy baldness.” Many people who develop the condition are otherwise healthy, but experience hair loss, often as a round or oval bald patch on the scalp. But they can lose hair anywhere on the body. Although the condition is not fully understood, there may be a genetic component to it. Sometimes, hair spontaneously regrows, but not always. Stem cell treatments may be helpful for alopecia aerate, but exosome treatment is the real powerhouse for this condition; PRP isn’t recommended.
Loss of Hair After Injury
Scar tissue and localised hair loss can occasionally result from cuts or bumps that are severe enough to damage the scalp. Scar tissue does not have hair follicles to grow since it is not normal tissue. The majority of folks have a lot of issues with this fibroid tissue.
Exosomes can be used to stimulate hair development in the vicinity of a scar to help it blend in even while the scar tissue itself cannot regenerate hair. Exosomes or PRP can be used to treat the scar itself, potentially shrinking it and promoting the regeneration of additional hair follicles.
