Thyroid disease – an imbalance such as an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism)
Diabetes – a condition of elevated glucose (sugar) levels in the blood
Vitiligo – a condition of white patches on the skin
Treatments for hair loss:
2. Mesotherapy is a cocktail of growth factors, peptides, amino, nucleic and hyaluronic acids and vitamins. These ingredients are microinjected into the mesoderm layer of the skin to stimulate hair growth.
3. Botulinum Toxin injected into the scalp every four months decreases the resistance to blood flow around the hair follicle, it results in an improved circulation to the hair follicle.
Treatment increases the blood flow and circulation to the scalp. The stimulation invigorates the hair follicle and results in healthier hair, preventing further hair loss. Therefore overall treatment includes supplementation, special hair care and a range of medical recommendations.
For advice and diagnosis consult a medical doctor or health care practitioner, there are many modern products that can aid in restoring hair growth.
