A Patient's Guide to Understanding Hair Loss

Hair loss affects millions of men and women in the United States, and countless more around the world. Although thinning hair and baldness is a natural part of aging, you certainly don’t have to accept anything less than a full head of hair. In some cases, hair loss may be the result of genetic conditions, environmental factors, or even poor hair care. In any case, there are options for men and women suffering from hair loss. As you begin to research different hair loss solutions and hair restoration procedures in Los Angeles, it’s important that you gain an understanding of why you are losing hair in the first place. Here are some of the most common causes of hair loss that can be treated by the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration procedure.

Hereditary Hair Loss
The most common cause of hair loss is hereditary in nature. If anyone else in your family is bald or balding, a family history of hair loss is likely the cause of your hair problems. Pattern baldness is most common in men but can also affect women, and can begin as early as puberty.

Medical Conditions
There is a long list of medical conditions that can cause thinning hair and pattern baldness. Hormonal changes and imbalances are typically the most common medical cause of hair loss. Alopecia areata is another medical condition that can lead to hair loss. Scalp infections, skin disorders, and a rare hair-pulling disorder known as trichotillomania may also be to blame.

Hairstyles and Treatments
Not surprisingly, excessive hairstyling and harsh treatments can also lead to hair loss. Certain hairstyles that pull the hair tight, such as pigtails and cornrows, can cause a condition known as traction alopecia. Dyes and hot oil treatments can cause the hair follicles to become inflamed, which can lead to temporary or permanent hair loss.
