Women’s Hair Loss and Hair Replacement FAQ
What causes hair loss in women?
There are a number of things that can cause hair loss in women. Some women experience hair loss because it is an inherited family trait.

Male pattern baldness is one of the most common reasons men experience hair loss. Male pattern baldness is often hereditary so taking a good look at your family can help shed some light on where your hair loss may be coming from. If hair loss does not run in your family, men also experience thinning hair or hair loss due to medical conditions and diseases. It can also be caused by diet and stress. If you are experiencing hair loss for the first time, we recommend you speak with your Doctor to determine a cause before you pursue a hair loss solution.

Is a hair system a wig or toupee?
We hear this question a lot. Toupees tend to have a very negative stigma attached to them. While the concept of a toupee was great, let’s face it a lot of them just didn’t look that great and people feared wearing them as a result! Our hair systems are made with new technology based off the same concept. What makes our solution different and better than older methods is that the system is made from 100% human hair, so they look natural and each is customized to fit each client so it completely blends in with the client’s natural hair instead of standing out.
How PRP Naturally Works for Hair Growth
Once injected in the dermal layer, platelets are activated, they inflate and grow factors are released.
The most important growth factors for hair applications are:
Platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) Stimulates dermal mesenchyme-epidermal follicle interaction (promotes new cell connectivity tissue).
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEG) Creates neoangiogenesis, increases and improves hair growth and hair size.
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) stimulates mitosis of epithelial cells and fibroblast, and improves the rate of anagen, the active growth phase of hair follicles.
Insulin like growth factor (IGF) slows down apoptosis or simply cells death.
Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) Stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of keratinocytes and endothelial cells (the key protein for hair keratin production).
®Nerve growth factor (NGF) Strongly stimulates hair growth and slow down cell death. This makes hair last longer and stronger.
