Hair Loss Treatment Seattle
Our society places a high premium on hair. Countless products exist to increase its volume, to change its color, or to style it wildly. But what happens when you begin to experience hair loss? For many individuals, thinning hair can have a significant impact on your quality of life. It changes your appearance and can cause significant harm to your self-confidence.
At Seattle Hair Surgery, we understand the impact that hair loss can have on your life. With this in mind, we are committed to helping our patients regain their natural hair through cutting-edge treatments. Dr. Cole uses his years of experience to restore your hair and your confidence.
Am I Experiencing Hair Loss?
For many, the transition from a full head of hair to balding is incredibly gradual. It happens so slowly that you hardly notice it until its too late. By keeping an eye out for the signs of hair loss, you can treat it right away.
- Patchy bald spots
- Clumps of hair falling out
- Thinning hair on top of your head
- Patches of scaling
However, not all episodes of hair loss are permanent. Some patients regrow their hair naturally once the cause has been addressed. Still, for all too many patients, loss of hair is much more permanent.
The difference depends on the cause of hair loss. At Seattle Hair Surgery, we treat all manner of hair loss causes, working to ensure that you have the full head of hair you deserve.
My entire experience at Cole Aesthetic was wonderful, start to finish. The entire staff treated me with friendly respect and as a valued patient from the minute I walked in the door for the first time…
Causes of Hair Loss
Currently, there are no ways to change your genes. For many patients, hair loss is tied to their family history. If you had a parent or grandparent who experienced baldness, then there is a good chance you may as well. Though gradual and predictable once it starts, many patients are unaware that it can be treated through hair transplants or NeoGraft.
Life circumstances and conditions can cause changes in your natural balance of hormones. Whether from a medical condition or events like pregnancy, your hair can begin to thin. Fortunately, this cause usually is temporary.
There are certain drugs and medications that have the unfortunate side effect of hair loss. Some examples include medications for cancer, arthritis, depression, or heart conditions. In these instances, it is important to identify the cause. If the medicine is ceased, then your hair tends to grow back on its own.
Traumatic and stressful events can have an effect on your hair. Whether the trauma is physical or emotional, the even might cause you to lose hair. But, this condition is usually temporary.
Certain hairstyles or hair treatment products can significantly harm your hair. Tight hairstyles such as pigtails or cornrows are known to cause a type of loss called traction alopecia. Though usually temporary, it can be permanent if the damage is severe.
Additional Risk Factors
In addition to the above causes, several factors can increase your hair loss risk. These include:
- Significant Weight Changes
- Medical Conditions
- Lack of Proper Nutrition
- Chronic Stress
What Are My Hair Loss Treatment Options?
Treatment typically depends on the type and cause of your hair loss. After Dr. Cole has determined your diagnosis, he will develop a personalized treatment plan to restore your hair. Two of the most effective means of hair restoration are hair transplant surgery and laser therapy.
Hair Transplant Surgery
Using modern techniques, Dr. Cole is able to relocate functional hair follicles to target sites. Once transplanted, these follicles begin regrowing your own hair. The results are entirely natural-looking, avoiding the “plugged” look of traditional methods. The main qualification for this treatment is that patients have a sufficient amount of healthy hair follicles to transplant. Dr. Cole applies cutting-edge techniques while using the latest in hair restoration technology to deliver stunning results.
This is an effective treatment for hereditary loss. It is most-effective before a significant amount of loss has occurred. Rather than replacing lost hair, it encourages and improves hair density.
