What Are Hair Loss?

Hair loss due to medical conditions, chemical exposure, nutrients deficiency, hormonal changes, heredity, or any other causes affect millions of people each year. Although it’s more common in men, women are also affected. Depending on the underlying causes, the condition can be either temporally, e.g., stress-related hair loss or permanent, e.g., hereditary hair loss.

At Lumiskins, we help treat or improve the condition by providing advanced hair loss treatments in Toronto. Whether your hair loss is genetic or otherwise, we provide ways to combat it.

Types Of Hair Loss

Doctors/ cosmetologist divide hair loss into two categories, i.e.

Scarring Alopecia:

In this class of hair loss, the hair follicles are destroyed, minimizing any chances of hair regeneration. Skin diseases and physical trauma are the leading causes of scarring alopecia. 

Non-scarring Alopecia:

This is the most common type of hair loss, and it’s caused by aging, diet, diseases (e.g., alopecia areata), drugs, stress (telogen effluvium), and genetic predisposition. In non-scarring alopecia, hair loss is reversible.

Causes Of Hair Loss

item 1
Medications and Supplements

Certain medications, including allopurinol, warfarin, chemotherapy medication, and supplements such as excessive Vitamin A intake can lead to hair loss. Also, the lack of vitamin D has been linked to hair loss. Hair loss as a result of medication or supplements can be reversible.

item 2
Heredity (Androgenic Alopecia)

Predetermined hair loss through familial inheritance can be divided into two, i.e., male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness. In men, this type of hair loss occurs due to a hair follicle enzyme (5-alpha reductase) metabolizing testosterone. This usually occurs at the middle and frontal hairline of the scalp since the posterior hair follicles do not produce this enzyme. Female pattern baldness is post-menopausal, and it involves overall hair thinning except for the frontal hairline. Inheritance is the most common type of hair loss.

item 3

Diseases such as lupus, skin cancer, thyroid disease, alopecia areata, scalp infection, kidney and liver failure, iron deficiency anemia, and syphilis can lead to either temporally or permanent hair loss.

item 4
Hormonal Disturbance

Hormonal imbalance, which typically occurs during pregnancy, puberty, or due to certain conditions (thyroid problems) can lead to hair loss. This usually regrows after the hormones balance.

item 5

If you undergo a traumatic even and remain stressed/ traumatized for months, you may experience some hair thinning. This can be prevented or reversed by dealing with stress. It is advisable to seek help whenever you’re traumatized.

Methods Of Hair Loss Treatment

If you notice hair loss, contact your cosmetologist to get examined. This is important before trying out the “miracle hair growth formulas” (that are mostly scam), which can cause further damage. Also, note that not all hair loss requires treatment as some conditions reverse themselves.

At Lumiskins, a cosmetologist usually examines you and determines whether you require treatment. If your condition is reversible through treatment, a treatment method, or a combination of treatment methods, will be presented to you.

PRP Therapy

This refers to the use of platelet-rich plasma to treat hair loss. During this procedure, we extract a small amount of blood from the patient and prepare a concentrated platelet plasma. We then inject the PRP into the target area on the scalp. The concentrated platelet solution contains a high amount of proteins which stimulate dense and healthy hair growth.


Lack of enough nutrients in the scalp, including lack of proteins due to dieting or poor blood circulation, can lead to thinning or loss of hair. In such a situation, we inject a unique solution of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes into the scalp to restore hair growth. This is called Mesotherapy. It provides the necessary nutrients to stimulate and maintain dense, healthy hair growth. 

Laser Hair Therapy

A low-level laser therapy treatment (approved by the FDA in 2007) can also be used to treat hereditary hair loss in both women and men. Laser therapy utilizes

Corticosteroid Injection

A corticosteroid injection, such as Kenalog, can be used to treat alopecia areata. It’s usually injected into the affected parts. The corticosteroid stops white blood cells from attacking hair follicles. This restores healthy hair growth.

Not that a combination of two treatment methods such as laser therapy and PRP therapy can be used to ensure optimal results.

A similar cosmetic procedure is cosmetic Botox, where fillers are injected in desired areas to enhance that part.
