What causes hair loss?

Androgenic (too many androgens such as testosterone and DHT) hair loss is the most common type of hair loss. Many patients experience thinning hair due to aging, a family history of hair loss, poor nutrition, weight shifts, ongoing stress or trauma, hormone imbalance, and poor hair care practices.

If you struggle with hair loss, treatment at Revive Wellness restores your body’s natural hair growth and stops future hair loss.

What are the benefits of hair loss treatment?

Some of the benefits you can expect when choosing hair regrowth treatments at Revive Wellness include:

  • Fuller, thicker hair
  • Healthier-looking hair
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Long-lasting results

Is hair loss treatment right for me?

The specialists at Revive Wellness let you know if you’re a candidate for hair restoration after reviewing your medical history, desired outcome, and examining your hair and scalp. They also recommend a blood test to evaluate your nutritional status, hormone levels, and possible underlying causes of premature hair loss. 

What should I expect during my treatment?

Revive Wellness offers a variety of diagnostic services to help determine the cause of your hair loss and the best course of treatment. You may need to complete:

  • Questionnaires about patterns, genetics, and environmental risk factors
  • Hair microscopy - microscope to the scalp to assess scalp health
  • Hair mineral testing (to determine dietary, stress, and environmental factors related to hair loss)
  • TrichoTest

The team at Revive Wellness uses the TrichoTest, a mineral test that analyzes your hair to determine the risk factors for hair loss caused by alopecia. TrichoTest screens for 48 genetic variations and 13 genes related to alopecia. The test offers a guide for hair-regrowth treatment and prevention of future problems based on the patient’s unique genetics.

TrichoTest results lead to an immediate decision regarding which medications work best for patients, rather than a 90-day cycle to figure out the best hair-thickening solution.

The Revive Wellness specialists offer an array of treatments to give you fuller, thicker hair. They use an integrated program that takes into consideration your hair loss risk factors, TrichoTest results, and a patient questionnaire to guide treatment decisions. 

Your provider may recommend:

  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Customized nutrition plans
  • Dietary supplements
  • Shampoos/hair care
  • Medicated hair formula and solutions
  • Medications
  • Laser therapies
  • Microneedling (with and without PRP and exosome therapy)
  • Dietary/nutritional/gut health recommendations

Regenerative medicine (like PRP and exosome therapy) uses platelets from your blood as injections to stimulate new hair growth naturally. Or, you might take medications to treat the underlying cause of your hair loss. 

Over time, you can expect fuller, healthier hair and less future hair loss. Follow up with your Revive Wellness expert periodically to ensure the best outcome and long-term hair restoration. They can monitor your hormone balance, nutrition, and other contributing factors to hair loss.

How can I lessen my risk of hair loss?

Ways to reduce your risk of future hair loss include seeing your Revive Wellness specialist regularly, eating nutritious foods, getting regular exercise, and keeping stress levels low. 

Take dietary supplements if your specialist asks you to, avoid harsh hair care practices (excessive heat or dyes, pulling your hair tight, and brushing it vigorously), and schedule an appointment at the first sign of a hormone imbalance or another medical problem.
