        What causes hair loss?

        Various factors can contribute to hair loss, the most common causes being:

        • Genetics (a family history of balding on your father's or mother’s side).
        • Aging.
        • Significant weight loss.
        • Certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or lupus, and medical treatments, such as radiation or chemotherapy.
        • Stress.
        • Poor diet/nutrition. 
        • Overuse of harsh hair products, like gel or bleach.

          Hair loss or thinning can emotionally impact those who struggle with it, leading to lowered self-esteem and a lack of confidence in how one presents themselves. DLK on Avenue understands the frustration and shame that can come with hair loss, so we hold a strong commitment to helping you address your concerns so you can look and feel your best.

        What are the Types of Hair Loss?

        Androgenic Alopecia

        Androgenic alopecia, also known as male-pattern baldness, is the most common type of hair loss for men and women.

        Anagen Effluvium

        Anagen effluvium is a condition that makes hair loss occur due to damage of the follicles, often caused by chemotherapy or other toxic agents.

        Telogen effluvium

        Telogen effluvium is a scalp disorder characterized by the thinning or shedding of hair resulting from the early entry of hair in the telogen phase (the resting phase of the hair follicle).

         

        Tinea Capitis

        Tinea Capitis, also known as fungal infection of the scalp, leads to bald patches and scaling on the scalp, often accompanied by itchiness and tenderness.

        Cicatricial Alopecia

        Cicatricial alopecia, also known as Scarring Alopecia, is a rare type of hair loss disorder where the hair follicles are destroyed and replaced by scar tissue.

        Hair Shaft Abnormalities

        Hair shaft abnormalities refer to conditions that affect the visible part of hair above the skin. These abnormalities can be caused by genetic or acquired factors and may result in hair that is weak, brittle, or has an unusual appearance.

         

        Hypotrichosis

        Hypotrichosis is a condition where hair growth is either absent or reduced. Unlike alopecia, which is hair loss of previously healthy hair, hypotrichosis is hair loss due to unhealthy or underproductive hair follicles.

        Hair Loss Treatment

        Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

        Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy often referred to as PRP, is a cutting-edge solution for hair loss. The natural approach to this treatment involves using your body’s own resources to stimulate hair growth. After placing it in a centrifuge, PRP uses your blood to rejuvenate the hair follicles and promote regrowth. Learn More

         

        PRP Hair Loss Treatment in DLK on Avenue

        DLK’s Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment involves collecting a small sample of the patient's blood and using a centrifuge to separate out the plasma and platelet portions. The resulting PRP is then injected back into the skin to stimulate new collagen production and rejuvenate cells. The product used is 100% autologous, meaning it is derived from the patient's own blood, making it a safer alternative to other treatments.

        Your blood contains platelets and plasma, which contain growth factors and proteins. Plasma helps your blood to clot, while PRP is the substance that promotes healing. It also contains proteins that support cell growth. Injecting PRP into tissues stimulates your body to grow new, healthy cells. This minimally invasive treatment is safe and effective for hair loss and thinning.

         

        PRP Benefits Beyond Hair Regrowth

        Not only can PRP help hair regrowth, but it can also improve the texture and density of your hair, aiding overall scalp health. PRP can boost your confidence so you can face the world with improved self-esteem and a full head of hair. 


        DLK’s PRP Treatment occurs in a medically supervised clinic after a proper consultation. Your specific skin concerns and goals are addressed during the consultation, and a customized management plan is formulated. A medical practitioner draws a small amount of blood from your arm into a tube during the treatment. The tube is then placed into a centrifuge, which spins the blood rapidly, causing the platelets to separate.


        Once the separation is complete, the PRP can be injected into specific sites based on the patient's needs.

        FAQs on Hair Loss Treatment

        Q1. How long does a typical hair loss treatment program last?

        Your PRP treatment will take 45 minutes to one hour, and if you attend a maintenance appointment every six months, you can enjoy your results long-term.

         

        Q2. Are there any potential side effects or risks associated with hair loss treatments?

        While side effects after your PRP treatment are rare due to its autologous nature and the expertise of your DLK dermatologists, you may experience:
        • Slight dizziness and nausea.
        • Scalp pain.
        • Skin irritation.
        • Scar tissue at the injection site.
        • Injury to the blood vessels or nerves.

        Q3. Can I combine different hair loss treatments for better results?

        It is recommended to only pursue one hair loss treatment so you do not overwhelm the follicles or risk injury. However, you can discuss combining different treatments during your DLK on Avenue consultation. Combining your hair loss treatment with a rejuvenating skin treatment can have you looking years younger and more radiant.

         

        Q4. Will hair loss treatments interfere with my daily activities or require downtime?

        Proper aftercare is essential to ensure optimal results and avoid complications following any cosmetic treatment, including your PRP treatment. One of the most crucial post-treatment recommendations is to avoid sun exposure for at least 24 hours after your procedure. You should also avoid:

        • Applying pressure to the area for the first day.
        • Consuming nicotine, alcohol, and caffeine for the first few days.
        • Use gentle products once you begin to wash your hair again.

        You can return to work immediately following your procedure if you’d like, and all discomfort or swelling will subside after a few days. 

         

        Q5. How much does hair loss treatment cost?

        In Toronto, the cost of your PRP hair loss treatment will range from $1,500–$3,500 for your first three treatments, or one injection is often priced at around $500. These prices can vary based on the size of the treatment area and the severity of your concerns, so it is best to ask about the cost during your DLK on Avenue consultation.
