Hair Loss: Causes, Symptoms & Treatments

at Omniya Clinic in London

What is hair loss?

Hair loss is a common issue with every person losing an average of 50-100 hairs in one day. This condition can be either temporary or permanent and is particularly common in men. 

Hair loss can also be the result of male or female pattern baldness, which is more frequently found in the elderly. While some people prefer to let their hair loss run its course untreated, it can cause insecurity in others.

At Omniya, we understand how hair loss can affect your everyday confidence. That’s why we offer a range of procedures which can help to minimise the symptoms of hair loss and help you begin to feel more confident within yourself. 

Upon meeting with one of our specialists, they will assess the severity of your hair loss and create a treatment plan which best suits your circumstances.

What are the causes of hair loss?

There are many causes of hair loss with stress, vitamin deficiencies, and illness being the most common. 

Another known cause of hair loss is hereditary factors, with baldness being the main symptom. Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from the scalp, which is a permanent form of the condition.

What are the symptoms of hair loss?

One of the earliest and most common symptoms of hair loss is the gradual thinning of hair on top of the head. Hair loss can also be seen through circular or patchy bald spots, sudden losses of hair, and patches of scaling spread over the scalp. 

Full body hair loss is another known symptom, this being common for individuals experiencing side effects from treatments such as chemotherapy. However, the hair will typically grow back after these types of medical treatments.

What treatments are available at Omniya?

At Omniya, we are proud to offer some of the best hair transplant services available to our patients. Using FUE hair transplants, we can use your hair follicles to renew bald patches and areas with no previous hair growth. FUE hair transplants offer a permanent solution to hair loss, the results appearing within 6-12 months after the surgery. 

With numerous successful hair transplants completed, our specialists can work closely with you to ensure that your procedure is completed quickly and successfully.

Hair loss FAQs

What can I expect to see from microneedling?

It’s common to notice an improvement in hair growth after a course of treatments, as directed by your practitioner.

How regularly can I have microneedling treatment?

You may be advised a rest of one month to six weeks between treatments to allow the scalp to repair fully, but this will be determined by your practitioner.

Does PRP work on long-term hair loss?

PRP Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is typically more successful on those who have experienced recent hair loss.

Is microneedling the same process that's done on the skin?

Yes, aside from collagen production in the skin, microneedling can also induce stem cells in the hair which assist in hair growth.
