About Hair Loss Treatments

Hair loss and thinning are extremely common, but sudden or accelerating hair loss can be a major concern for both men and women. Hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, stress, medications, or hormonal changes. Individuals seeking to slow or stop the progression of thinning hair, conceal the appearance of a receded hairline or sparsely covered crown, or who are hesitant to undergo surgical procedures may benefit from non-surgical hair loss treatments that result in hair growth rejuvenation.

Commonly asked questions about Hair Loss Treatments

Before undertaking any procedure, you will want to be confident in your knowledge. Find the details on Hair Loss Treatments here.

1. What are hair loss treatments?

Hair loss treatments are non-surgical, non-invasive techniques and technologies that produce thicker, more natural-looking hair without the need for hair transplant surgery. Treatments for hair restoration may include a combination of techniques such as low-level laser therapy, topical minoxidil and growth stimulators, as well as topical nutrient-based shampoo, among others. Hair loss treatments have been proven to be effective for patients with mild thinning hair.

2. Am I a good candidate for hair loss treatments?

For many individuals, non-surgical hair loss treatments are the best way to regain a full head of hair. Regardless of the cause or stage of your hair loss, whether mild or severe, a custom non-surgical hair replacement treatment may be a good option as it is non-invasive and has little downtime. Candidates for hair loss treatment may also include those who:

  • Have tried topical hair loss treatments with no success
  • Desire to conceal extensive baldness where hair transplant is not an option
  • Experience hair loss due to alopecia areata

3. What are the common treatments for hair loss?

  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) – Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a high concentration of platelets contained in a small volume of plasma derived from your own blood. The use of your own plasma helps to reverse the aging process by releasing various growth factors, stimulating tissue regeneration, and allowing for the formation of new blood vessels. This stimulates the activity of hair follicles, promoting the growth of stronger, healthier hair. PRP can also improve hair density, making individual hairs thicker.
  • Minoxidil/ Rogaine Solution – This topical solution treatment aids those suffering from male or female pattern hair loss, such as androgenetic alopecia or genetic hair loss. By causing blood vessels in the scalp to dilate, the Minoxidil/ Rogaine solution increases blood flow to the scalp, promoting hair growth. As a result, hair follicles that are in the dormant (telogen) phase are stimulated to enter the active (anagen) phase of growth.
  • Low-Level Laser Therapy – Low-level laser therapy has been shown to be an effective hair loss treatment and prevention method. This treatment uses the low-level lasers from the BIOLIGHT Medical Hair Therapy cap to energize hair follicles and stimulate new natural hair growth. These lasers have been clinically proven to slow the progression of hair loss and renew the hair follicle for thicker, healthier hair.

4. What is recovery like after hair loss treatment?

Since hair loss treatments are non-invasive, there is little to no downtime following each appointment. It is critical to follow the treatment plan and recommendations after each treatment discussed with your healthcare provider.

5. When will I see results?

Hair loss treatment outcomes will vary depending on the preferred treatment and the number of treatments required. Treatment durations are typically six months or longer, with ongoing maintenance treatments to maintain results. Patients will have denser, thicker hair once they have finished the number of treatments recommended by their preferred provider.

6. What are the risks of hair loss treatments?

There are few to no risks or side effects associated with hair loss treatments. Aside from the possibility of a rare allergic reaction and swelling and/or bruising following treatments, there is a low risk of any other medical problem.

7. How much do hair loss treatments cost in Canada?

The cost of hair loss treatment varies depending on the patient and the treatment chosen. In Canada, the cost of hair loss treatments ranges from $750 to $3,000.
