Alopecia Areata: Causes and Treatment

If you’ve recently noticed a substantial amount of hair falling out when you’re showering, in your hairbrush, or on your pillow, you’re probably worried about what’s going on. While a small amount of hair loss is normal, if the amount you’re noticing is out of the ordinary for you, you’ll want to speak with a dermatologist as soon as possible, as you may have an autoimmune disorder known as alopecia areata.

Alopecia, a term used to describe non-specific conditions associated with hair loss, has many causes and treatments. In general, autoimmune diseases attack your body. In the case of alopecia areata, it’s the hair follicles that are being attacked. This causes your hair to fall out, while how much varies from person to person. Some can lose a little hair in a few spots while others may lose a lot all over. In rare cases, a person can lose all the hair on their head (alopecia areata totalis) or the hair on their entire body (alopecia areata universalis).

The cause of alopecia areata is different for everyone, as is the treatment plan. While alopecia can’t be cured, the condition can be treated, and hair can grow back. At Hans Weimann, we have extensive experience with alopecia treatment in St. Louis. Contact us today at (888) 608-1233 to request additional information for treating your hair loss due to alopecia.

Keeping Hair Healthy After a Transplant

It’s natural to have questions and concerns regarding how to care for your hair after a hair transplant.  After any surgical procedure, you want to be sure you’re being cautious and following your doctor’s orders. After your recovery period, and your transplanted hair begins to grow in fuller and longer, you want to be sure you’re doing everything you can to promote a healthy scalp and hair growth.

Taking proper care of your transplanted hair after an ARTAS Robotic hair transplant is essential to achieve great, long-lasting results. While there are many general recommendations post-transplant, only your surgeon knows what is best for you. Failure to follow proper care instructions after a transplant can result in damage to hair and even further hair loss. So, initially, it’s best to follow all of your doctor’s directions.

Following the initial recovery period, everything from how often you wash your hair to what you eat can have an impact on how healthy your new hair is. Your hair needs tender, loving care. Too much heat and chemicals in shampoos can do serious damage to freshly transplanted hair. The state of your hair is also a reflection of what you eat. For stronger, healthier hair you’ll want to eat a well-rounded diet that includes fish, nuts, eggs, fruit, and spinach.

For nearly 60 years, people have been trusting Hans Wiemann to find the solution to their hair loss problems. Call us today to schedule a free hair and scalp analysis or to discuss your concerns about how to properly care for your hair post-transplant.

Advantages of ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant

When considering a hair transplant, there is no better option than an ARTAS® robotic hair transplant. This system has revolutionized the hair transplant procedure in amazing ways. An ARTAS robotic hair transplant provides mathematical accuracy and precision as well as consistent results all in a minimally invasive procedure.

Advantages of ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant

  • Minimally invasive, eliminating the need for scalp incisions.
  • Because there are no incisions, it does not create linear scars.
  • Fast recovery Generally, within three days you’ll have only a couple of small scabs that will fall off in a few days.
  • The results of the robotics transplants are permanent.

ARTAS robotic hair transplant technology creates a custom hair transplant. It uses high-resolution digital imaging to visualize the patient’s scalp surface and determine the density and distribution of each follicular unit. The ARTAS hair transplant system then uses mathematical algorithms to guide its harvesting of follicular units in a minimally invasive way.

To help make your decision a little easier, we’re currently offering special savings on all ARTAS treatments. Until September 30th you’ll save $750 off of an ARTAS robotic hair transplant. Call us today, and we’ll gladly answer any questions you may have, as well as schedule a free hair and scalp analysis.

Tips to Fight Hair Loss Naturally

Some people are just destined to deal with thinning hair. Your garden variety hair loss comes with advanced age while thinning and receding hair is often thanks to heredity. However, while you may be more susceptible to hair loss, there are a few things you can do to give the hair you have now a fighting chance at staying put.

Would you like to help slow the progression of hair loss and maintain healthy locks for as long as possible? Here’s how:

Nutrition: Unfortunately, many people don’t have the best diets. Protein is an essential element in the strength and growth of your hair. The best sources of protein are milk, egg whites, and fish.

Vitamins: You can get your Vitamin A boost, which is crucial to healthy hair, through diet or supplements. Foods rich in vitamin A include leafy greens, carrots, and eggs. B12 supports the creation of red blood cells while Vitamin E encourages healthy circulation, which provides oxygen for your body.

Avoid Stress: Many times stress is the cause of hair loss. Losing your hair can be stressful. And stress (physical and emotional) can sometimes increase hair loss. Try meditation or yoga to help reduce stress and calm your mind.

Style Tips: Avoid dyes and perms while minimizing the use of straighteners, curling irons, and blow drying. Be gentle overall – that means not too much brushing or washing.

Even with these tips and tricks, hair loss is unavoidable for lots of men and women. When your condition is past the early stages of thinning, and you need follicle intervention, Hans Wieman is the answer. Contact us today to learn more about PRP treatment for hair loss and all of our restorative hair treatment solutions.

Spotting Early Signs of Balding

Like most signs of aging, male pattern baldness doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, going bald is often a slow process. For some men, that might take several years, while for others it might take several decades.

Male pattern baldness, also called androgenic alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss in men. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), more than 50 percent of all men over the age of 50 will be affected by male pattern baldness to some extent. By the age of 30, many men begin loosing or have lost a significant amount of their hair.

Below are some of the prominent signs and stages of male pattern baldness to be aware of.

  1. Changes in Hairline – Baldness often begins at the hairline, with the flat or mildly receded hairline you previously had turned into a more obvious V-shaped hairline. For most people, this begins around the temples and often starts with thinning rather than total hair loss.
  2. Noticeable Thinning – Some men experience a type of hair loss that either affects the entire scalp or specific areas like the crown, resulting in baldness that starts from the back or top, rather than from the hairline.
  3. Excessive Hair Loss – It’s normal to lose hair when you shower, brush or comb. However, if you notice an excessive amount of hair falling out throughout the day, there’s a risk that it could be the result of male pattern baldness.

The key to controlling hair loss is noticing the signs of baldness and taking action as soon as possible. The earlier you take action to prevent hair loss, the more hair you’ll be able to save with PRP hair loss treatment.  Contact Hans Wiemann today to learn more about PRP hair loss treatment as well as our other hair loss solutions.

Protect and Restore Your Hair for Summer

Damaged hair happens to the best of us. Even if you’re religious about your hair care routine, daily irritants cause the keratins in your hair to break down, leaving it needing some extra TLC. With the official start of summer just days away, it’s time to make sure your hair looks and feels its absolute best.

But first, have you ever stopped to consider how the sun affects your hair? Just as it can damage your skin, the sun can also damage your scalp, especially when hair thinning and hair loss is an issue. Overexposure to harmful sun rays, sweat, sea salt, and chlorinated pool water, will cause damage to varying degrees. Protect your hair from the sun this summer with these helpful tips.

Stay Hydrated – Drinking plenty of water is important for all of your bodily functions, including your hair. A well-hydrated scalp boosts its ability to retain moisture and avoid dandruff. You can also massage your scalp with essential oils, like coconut oil, avocado oil, and rosemary oil, to lock in that much-need moisture protection.
Care for Color – Color-treated hair needs extra care during the summertime. Chemical treatments mixed with the burning summer sun can lead to color fading, maximum damage, and hair dryness.
Conditioning – If the damage is already done, you can help reverse it and restore moisture using a nourishing, quality conditioner.
Avoid the Heat – Your hair is already exposed to plenty of heat from the sun, so avoid tools like flat irons and blow dryers as much as you can during the summer.
Sun Protection – You can’t avoid the sun so the next best option is by wearing a hat or cap. If hats aren’t for you, you can use a leave-in conditioner with SPF.

Worst case scenario, sun damage can lead to hair loss and thinning hair. If this is an issue for you, PRP treatment for hair loss is worth looking into. In the meantime, you don’t have to live with limp, lifeless hair this summer. Heed our haircare advice tips in order to protect your locks from UV damage.

Study Finds Black Women More Prone to Hair Loss

As a woman of color, you already know that your hair can be a real issue. What you may not realize, however, is that your hair issues are actually genetic. Your hair has an innate fragility that is causing all of that breaking, thinning and hair loss.

Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia, or CCCA, is the number one cause of hair loss in black women. This disorder causes inflammation and destruction to the hair follicles that leads to scarring and even permanent hair loss.

This genetic disorder is only made worse by hair styles that ethnic woman prefer, including braids, buns, slicked-back ponytails, chemical relaxers, and wearing weaves. What this means is, while black women are predisposed to this condition, hair styles and chemical treatments are making matters worse.

A new study published earlier this year and presented at the American Academy of Dermatology’s 74th Annual meeting in Washington shows that not only are black women more prone to hair loss, but they are also less likely to seek professional help to rectify the problem.

As a result, instead of seeking treatment for CCCA or other causes, women are covering their hair loss or thinning hair with wigs, weaves, or braids. This can compound the problem and make already damaged hair worse and can even negatively affect the scalp to the point of irreversible hair loss.

It is possible to get back on track to healthy hair and scalp. Contact Hans Wiemann to learn more about PRP treatment for hair loss as well as additional ethnic hair loss solutions. In the meantime, avoid tight hair styles that put tension on the follicles, like braids and weaves, and limit the use of chemical relaxers in order to reduce the risk of hair loss.

Boost Your Confidence with Hair Restoration

Social norms dictate how we perceive ourselves physically as we age, with the preference in appearance being those men with a full head of hair versus men with thinning hair or bald patches. However, genetics and health determine the amount of hair we have as we age, even in women. Though most women don’t experience hair loss to the extent men sometimes do, they too experience thinning and receding hair.

With these changes often comes lowered self-esteem and self-worth. We spend so much time focusing on our physical appearance and how it’s changing that our self-confidence takes a major hit. This depression can negatively impact personal relationships, jobs, and health.

If you’re looking to restore the confidence you had before your follicle issues and start enjoying life again without embarrassment or shame, PRP treatment for hair loss is the solution.

Have you found yourself becoming more isolated from family and friends? Did you once enjoy an active social life but are now avoiding it because of the embarrassment you feel over your hair loss? It’s not uncommon for men and women to overeat, reduce physical exercise activities, and socially isolate themselves. These are all behaviors displayed by someone with lowered self-esteem.

PRP treatment for hair loss will help you achieve natural-looking results in as few as 90 days with a minimally invasive procedure. Everyone is a candidate for PRP, so contact us today at (888) 608-1233 to request additional information about the services we provide.
