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.

Combating Thinning Hair

It’s easy to say there are worse things in life than thinning hair, but if you’re the one experiencing premature hair thinning and hair loss, that reality can be devastating. We all dream of having thick, voluminous hair, but many just aren’t genetically gifted that way.

If you find yourself in the early stages of thinning hair and aren’t quite ready for hair loss restoration or a PRP hair loss treatment, but you want to do something to help boost your limp locks, there are over the counter shampoos that can help.

Beauty aisles are seemingly jam-packed with endless choices when it comes to hair loss shampoos. However, some of them may contain chemicals and additives that do more harm than good to your scalp and hair.

So, how do you choose the best hair loss treatment shampoo? Before you grab just any bottle off the shelf, here are our suggestions:

  • The best hair loss shampoos must be free from chemicals, like paragons and sulfates, which may harm your hair instead of helping.
  • Look for products that contain ingredients loaded with minerals, essential oils and vitamins good for the scalp, especially caffeine, saw palmetto, ketoconazole and biotic.
  • Choose a shampoo from brands proven to be successful. Make it a point to do your research first.
  • Use one shampoo that works and stick with it.

There’s no denying how incredibly frustrating hair thinning and hair loss can be. However, there is help – whether that’s through shampoos or hair restoration treatments. Finding a product that works for you will take some research, and even trial-and-error, but the results will be worth it in the end.

Restorative Treatment for Thinning or Receding Hair

Until it becomes an issue, we often take our hair for granted. While we know someday our hair will thin, recede or completely fall out, no one is ever truly prepared for it to happen to them. But, before your hair gets too thin, or recedes too drastically, there are steps you can take to help minimize loss and help rebuild and restore your own natural hair. Before hair replacement becomes your only option, you should consider the 3-Step Restorative Hair Treatment Program at Hans Weimann.

Our three step plan starts with scalp stimulation, which is a relaxing scalp massage that promotes effective blood circulation. Step two utilizes one of the most powerful cosmetic lasers, the Alpha Laser. This safe, low-level light helps heal the cells and hair shafts, allowing for thicker, healthier hair to grow. The final step in our treatment program is to stimulate hair growth with medical grade Minoxidil. Specifically designed for our clientele by our own board certified Dermatologist, Gen-Tecs hair and scalp products will give you visibly healthier hair and improve your scalp.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Hair Transplant?

Is your hair thinning, receding or falling out? Are you looking for hair loss remedies and solutions that could prevent any more hair loss and restore some of the hair that’s gone and won’t regrow? Luckily, there is a solution. Today, advances in medical science have made it possible for those experiencing hair loss, especially hereditary hair loss – like male and female pattern baldness – to undergo ARTAS hair transplant surgery to restore lost hair.

Naturally, when considering any form of hair restoration treatment, you’re probably asking yourself, “Am I even a candidate?”, and “Is a hair transplant right from me?” Those are good questions and should be addressed with the team of professionals at Hans Wiemann – a leader in hair restoration and transplantation.

Whether your hair loss is hereditary (such as androgenetic alopecia, aka pattern hair loss), due to a medical condition (chemotherapy, for example), because of medications you take, or is the result of environment – stress, alcohol consumption, and excess exposure to UV rays – you may be eligible for ARTAS hair transplant. There isn’t any one right candidate. Speak with a doctor specializing in hair transplants to answer your questions and discuss your options.

Take back your life and feel confident in your physical appearance after undergoing an ARTAS hair transplant. You could see a noticeable difference in as little as three months post-procedure. Stop dealing with hair loss on your own and come to our specialists to receive the solutions you deserve.
