Hair loss, also known as alopecia, thinning of the hair, or baldness can affect men, women and even children of all ages. It has been suggested that between 40% of women and 80% of men suffer from some type of hair loss around the world (i.e. University of Pennsylvania 2012). In the U.S., over 35 million men and a further 21 million women are affected by hair loss (1). There are many factors that contribute to hair loss such as genetics, medication, hormones, stress, depression and even a poor diet. There are also many distinct types of hair loss; this is important to understand in order to find the correct options and strategies to help it.
The biologically active GKL-02 ingredient complex of peptides and proteins strengthens hair roots and infuses vital nutrients into the hair and hair follicle to reduce hair fall and improve hair condition.
HAIR LOSS SOLUTIONS
CAUSE OF HAIR LOSS
There are several reasons why hair loss occurs, and a correct diagnosis can greatly aid in the improvement thereof. Genetics, diet, hormones, stress, lifestyle and even medication can all tie into why patients experience hair loss. Thymuskin can be used alone or as part of a multi-modal treatment program to aid in the restoration of hair.
TYPES OF HAIR LOSS
The medical term for hair loss is alopecia and is divided into several categories, each with distinct patterns of hair loss. Alopecia androgentica often occurs as thinning around the hair path for women and as a receding hairline or crown bald patch in men. Alopedia diffusa is a general hair thinning across the entire scalp while alopecia areata appears as bald patches on one or more places on the skull. Alopecia medicamentosa is hair loss as a result of medication, such as chemotherapy, and can result in total baldness.
Thymuskin® has different strengths in their formulation depending on the scalp condition and severity of hair loss. The classic serum is for mild hair loss, the med serum for moderate to severe hair loss and the forte serum is ideal for severe medically induce hair loss. Thymuskin® also offers complimentary products such as the intensive conditioner which can be used as an overnight hair masque and the styling gel which does not weigh down fragile new hair growth.
