Using nutraceuticals for hair thinning, loss, and overall care

Hair thinning and loss can become problematic for both men and women. At Khrom Dermatology MedSpa and Wellness Florida, our Coral Springs, Florida team can evaluate your hair concerns and offer suggestions.

But first, what can cause a lack of hair growth after thinning and loss?

There are several reasons why patients might notice they are unable to regrow hair in a specific area of the scalp after thinning and loss. Some of these reasons include the following:

Genetics. One of the most common causes of hair loss is genetic predisposition. If you have a family history of pattern baldness, you are likely to also experience thinning and difficulty regrowing hair in certain areas. Our team refers to this type of hair loss as androgenetic alopecia.
Hormonal changes. Hormonal imbalances, especially those related to androgens, can contribute to hair loss. Androgens are the hormones that play a role in male sexual development and characteristics, but they also exist in females. Changes in androgen levels can disrupt the hair growth cycle and lead to excessive shedding or difficulty regrowing hair.
Medical conditions. Certain medical conditions often cause hair loss as a symptom. Examples include thyroid disorders, autoimmune diseases, and scalp infections. Treating the underlying condition often helps with hair regrowth.
Medications. Some medications, including chemotherapy drugs or blood thinners, can cause temporary or permanent hair loss. This is because these medications interfere with the normal hair growth cycle.
Stress and trauma. Physical or emotional stress can also disrupt the hair growth cycle and cause thinning and loss. This type of hair thinning and loss is referred to as telogen effluvium and can often be reversed once the stressor is addressed.
Nutritional deficiencies. A lack of specific vitamins and minerals in your body, such as iron, biotin, and vitamin D, can contribute to hair loss and difficulty regrowing hair. Eating a balanced diet and taking supplements can help with regrowth.
Age. As we age, it is natural for our hair to thin and become more fragile. This is due to decreased production of certain hormones and a slower cell turnover rate in the scalp.

How can I address hair thinning and loss?

At Khrom Dermatology MedSpa and Wellness Florida, our team may suggest hair growth nutraceuticals. Nutraceuticals are often used to regrow and thicken hair as they contain the essential vitamins and minerals that nourish hair follicles. Additionally, procedures such as platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) can also stimulate hair growth by injecting concentrated growth factors into the scalp. They can be combined with nutraceuticals for hair care and noticeable results!
