What is Hair Loss?

Hair loss, also called alopecia, occurs when a person experiences hair shedding that exceeds the normal rate. Humans typically lose around 50-100 hairs per day as part of the normal hair growth cycle. However, when hair loss is excessive or bald patches begin to form, it signifies an underlying cause requiring attention.

Hair loss can be triggered by many factors, ranging from genetics and hormonal imbalances to medical conditions, certain medications, or even stress. The appearance of hair loss varies from overall thinning to receding hairlines or distinct bald spots. Understanding the type of hair loss and its cause is the first step in determining the most suitable treatment options.

What Causes of Hair Loss?

The most common cause of hair loss is genetics, particularly male or female pattern baldness. Medical conditions also play a significant role.  Thyroid disorders, autoimmune diseases like alopecia areata, or scalp infections can disrupt hair growth. Lifestyle factors like severe stress, nutritional deficiencies, and tight hairstyles or harsh hair treatments further contribute to hair loss.

Certain medications, such as those used for chemotherapy, blood pressure, or blood thinners, can trigger hair loss as a side effect.  Additionally, natural processes like aging, childbirth, or significant weight loss can sometimes lead to temporary or permanent hair thinning. It’s crucial to consult specialist to identify the exact cause behind your dern to find the most effective treatment approach.

I had a great experience with therapist Dana, the massage part of the service was Heavily, but then it turned up a notch with the facial, I walked out of that room feeling great and looking 10 years younger!

I received a facial lifting treatment at the clinic (Inmode, sorry, I forgot the exact name). The clinic itself is very modern and new, with a great location that's conveniently close to the highway. The staff at the reception were super friendly and nice. The esthetician was very gentle during the treatment, and I almost fell asleep. Everything was very clean and well-managed. I'm definitely planning to go back there again.

Eve Therapy was recommended to me by a friend who attends Evergreen Rehab. I have been suffering from allergic dermatitis and breakouts for a few months and visited the clinic to get a consultation. The aesthetician recommended skin care treatments that would improve my skin during our brief consultation. I have received Acne Care, Aladdin Peeling, MTS, and IPL sessions which not only reduced my acne breakouts, but also helped fade my acne scars. I also purchased the famous SkinCeutical's vitamin C serum which also helped with my acne scars and brightening. I also received a couple of sessions of MiniFx which help to tone and slim my arms and outer thighs. Definitely recommend seeing Lily K for any skin concerns!!

I went to get a skin care consultation because i was planning for a wedding. I was only thinking about moisture management, but she gave me a consultation that was suitable for my skin condition, and they had a wedding package so i chose the wedding package with a happy heart. It's been a month since I took care of it, and I'm very satisfied and highly recommend it :)

I have a sensitive, oliy skin type and wanted to have decent cosmetics fit for my skin. And I found this spot care product and booked acne care therapy since they offered me a promo price. Recommend this place!
