Hair growth treatment options at Vanguard Medical Clinic in Calgary, AB
Hair loss is a common issue that can afflict both women and men, and it can result from several different causes. At Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic in Calgary, AB, our team of experts provides hair growth treatment options to regrow lost hair and restore your self-confidence.
Hair growth treatment options
There are several different types of hair loss, but the most common form is called “pattern baldness,” which is due to genetics. Men are more commonly affected by pattern baldness, but women can also experience it. Other types of hair loss include stress-induced hair loss, autoimmune disorders such as alopecia areata, hair loss due to excessive forces being repeatedly placed on the hair, and thinning hair due to natural aging processes.
While some forms of hair loss cannot be completely prevented or halted, effective balding solutions are available, such as:
- Topical medications
- Oral prescriptions
- Platelet rich plasma therapy to deliver growth factors directly to the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles
- Laser light therapy to promote circulation and hair growth in the scalp
- Natural remedies for hair growth, such as supplements and vitamins
Ways to prevent hair loss
In addition to treatment options that stimulate hair growth, we can provide you with information on medical or natural ways to slow down or stop hair loss, depending on the type of hair loss you are experiencing. For example, certain supplements and dietary changes can help support your hair health—in addition to your overall well-being—and making certain lifestyle and habit changes can also help protect your hair.
