Causes of Hair Loss
Some hair loss is quick, falling out in a matter of days or weeks, while other types progress slowly. Some patients experience patchy hair loss while others have a diffuse thinning of the hair. Some types of hair loss are temporary and others are permanent.
There are many causes of hair loss. These include:
- Medical conditions including alopecia areata and scalp infections
- Some medications including chemotherapy, anti-depressants, and medications for high blood pressure can cause hair loss.
- Radiation therapy to the head also results in hair loss.
- Pulling hairstyles including tightly pulled ponytails, pigtails, and cornrows.
- Hormonal changes including pregnancy, thyroid disorders, and menopause
Some of these causes of hair loss can be effectively treated with our in-office treatments. Others may be more difficult to treat. A consultation with a hair loss specialist, like Dr. Jose Barrera, is the best way to explore options and find what treatments may be effective for your type of hair loss.

PRP, short for platelet-rich plasma, is a concentrated blend of plasma and growth factors, isolated from a patient’s own blood. We start by drawing blood, using a similar process to a blood draw for lab work. This blood is carefully processed using a patented system to isolate the plasma, which is then injected into precise locations in the scalp to stimulate hair growth.
- PRP is proven to reduce hair loss in approximately 70% of patients
- Uses your own body’s growth factors to stimulate hair growth
- Easily combines with other hair loss treatments like the Theradome Laser Helmet
