Loss of hair on our scalp can be devastating for both men and women. The first step in treating hair loss is a medical evaluation to rule out causes like stress, anemia and thyroid issues. Most scalp hair loss is a progressive and gradual thinning, the pattern of which varies between men and women.
Prescription medications can help and require medical supervision. In severe cases where the health of hair follicles has been completely comprimised, robotic hair transplants can be very successful. Hair transplants require a highly-skilled and dedicated hair transplant team, and aren’t currently available in British Columbia.
Non-invasive treatments to improve scalp health, including Keravive and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, can help with mild and early hair loss when there are still active hair follicles, and are available at MD Wellness.
