Once you’ve identified why your hair may be falling out, Illume Cosmetic Surgery and MedSpa can help you get it back. We work to get the most natural results as possible and have you feeling like yourself again. Before we jump into the different treatments we offer, you’ll want to understand what could be contributing to your hair loss.
Why am I Losing My Hair?
Losing your hair can be caused by many different things, but the most common are:
- Medical Conditions or Medications
Some medical conditions, like thyroid problems or anemia, can cause you to lose your hair. Hair loss can also be a side effect of different medications, so make sure you understand the effects of any prescriptions you are taking.
Losing hair doesn’t always mean that something is wrong! If you have a family history of male pattern baldness, there is a chance it could be passed on to you. If you are struggling with hair loss, it may benefit you to take a look at your family tree and see if anyone else has experienced it.
If you recently noticed hair loss after starting a new job or any other big life change, there is a chance that stress could be the culprit.
There can be many different reasons that you are losing your hair, but it is best to talk with your doctor if you believe you have a serious complication. It’s always better to be safe, so make sure that your hair loss isn’t caused by a serious complication.
Types of Hair Loss Treatments in Milwaukee
Once you’re ready, our Milwaukee and Waukesha offices are happy to help you recover what you’ve lost. Below are a few different treatments we offer for hair loss but talking with one of our professionals is the best way to decide which option is right for your situation.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
FUE hair transplants are one of our most popular choices for hair restoration. In this small surgical procedure, hair is extracted from the back of the scalp and then re-implanted at the hair loss site. Using the FUE procedure doesn’t require any scalpel and doesn’t leave a scar. Only fuller, natural looking results.
FUT Doner Strip
FUT hair transplant, also known as a strip hair plant, is when we carefully remove a strip of the skin on the scalp, which is then sutured shut. With the strip of skin, the follicular grafts are removed and then transplanted to the hair loss treatment area. This procedure does create a visible scare where the strip of skin was removed, so you will need to keep that in mind before making your final decision.
Exosomes for Hair Loss
Exosomes and regenerative medicine can be used for many things, including hair loss. Exosome therapy has been proven safe and effective when treating hair loss. Exosome therapy doesn’t have as quick of results as other options but is non-surgical and provides no downtime after receiving treatment.
All these techniques take skilled hands to perform. Illume physicians and hair restoration specialists have had years of experience performing these different procedures and will be happy to help you in your journey to regain your hair. If you’re someone that wants to revitalize your look and get that natural hair feel from before, contact us today and we can help you decide on the procedure that is right for you.
