Every year, new techniques for hair restoration are introduced to hair professionals. When evaluating whether or not these new technologies should be applied to alleviate clients’ hair loss concerns, three primary considerations should be addressed. Here are the criteria considered by New Image Hair Clinic.

1. Is the new technology safe to use?
2. Has the new technology been proven effective?
3. Are results from the new technology guaranteed?

Prospective clients should seek the answers to these questions when they decide to pursue hair restoration procedures. Hair professionals should also consider criteria like these when determining whether to offer a new technology or service. Furthermore, in order to provide the best, safest care for their clients, hair restoration professionals should attend multiple training sessions to learn new skills whenever such a technology is adopted.

New Image Hair Clinic, with locations in Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, strives to help clients dealing with thinning hair and hair loss. The services offered by New Image Hair Clinic include laser therapy, hair transplants, and non-surgical solutions. 

Although hair loss may be more common in men, many women experience hair loss, as well. Women experiencing hair loss or thinning hair may suffer from low self-esteem and struggle to understand why the problem is occurring. Telogen effluvium is sometimes the answer they are trying to find, and women experience the condition for a variety of reasons. It commonly occurs after pregnancy, for example. Other causes include extreme stress and certain types of medications. The hair loss associated with telogen effluvium typically occurs between six weeks and three months after a triggering event.

Telogen effluvium occurs when a higher than normal number of hair follicles enter the dormant stage of growth at the same time. Many doctors recommend waiting out the hair loss, which should eventually slow unless the trigger, such as stress, remains constant. If you believe medication is the reason for your hair loss, discuss the issue with your doctor. It is not the only cause of hair loss in women, but telogen effluvium is particularly common.
New Image Hair Clinic is affiliated medically with MTHC and offers a full range of noninvasive and nonmedical solutions for women who experience hair loss. Unlike men, women do not face the prospect of a receding hairline and they rarely go bald. Rather, women’s hair loss begins with thinning throughout the scalp and particularly in the crown region. The tendency of many women to have longer hair than men also makes it difficult to identify hair loss at the beginning stages, because hair frequently comes out during brushing. 

Because the problem often is subtle and hard to identify, women should be aware of increased amounts of hair appearing on the brush as a sign that early-stage hair loss may be occurring. With options increasingly limited as hair loss progresses, it makes sense to seek hair replacement advice from an experienced professional as soon as early-stage hair loss is suspected. New Image Hair Clinic offers a variety of advanced solutions customized to the particular needs of women, including the Folistrand treatment that uses strands of the client’s own hair in restoring the hairline.

Located in Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, New Image Hair Clinic offers 
professional specialists with a wide range of experience in proven, reliable
hair loss treatments for men and women. Our initial consultations start with a
free comprehensive scalp analysis, in which we define hair loss patterns and
search out the primary cause of hair thinning or balding. Hair loss may stem
from many contributing factors, including medical issues, nutritional
deficiencies, and stress. Learning about lifestyle and medical factors gives
insight into possible reasons for hair loss, but does not present conclusive
evidence. A professional hair and scalp analysis presents important evidence
that can define the scope of hair loss and point to possible treatment

Our scalp analysis is completely safe and non-invasive, and
only trained hair loss treatment professionals conduct the procedure.
Microscopic analysis of just a few strands of hair from the scalp reveals
patterns of structural damage and the rate of hair loss and can reveal the
presence of fungus, lice, or genetic issues. Mineral analysis offers another
important set of data points. Levels of magnesium, calcium, zinc, copper,
chromium, mercury, lead, and aluminum give an indication of nutritional
deficiencies and medical conditions that may contribute to hair loss. A mineral
analysis will be performed by an outside source if deemed necessary.

Once New Image Hair Clinic staff have thoroughly analyzed the causes behind a
client’s hair loss, priority shifts to helping the client achieve the most
natural hairline possible through advanced hair restoration technologies. One
treatment solution we offer clients is hair transplantation utilizing
microscopic dissection techniques. This procedure allows us to generate
substantial new hair growth. Taking hairs from the scalp and side of the head
that are genetically predetermined not to fall out, we transplant individual
strands to the part of the head losing hair. New Image has a medical affiliation
by H.R.M.G.  The newly transplanted hair will continue to grow naturally for the
rest of the client’s life. For more information about New Image Hair Clinic

The hair restoration professionals at New Image Hair Clinic understand that the experience of losing one's hair can inspire a range of reactions from resignation to bewilderment, depending on the circumstances. Many people do not realize just how many different things can cause hair loss, either temporary or persistent. Fortunately, they can be broken down into a few general categories.

The most widespread and common type of hair loss is known as pattern baldness. Contrary to popular opinion, pattern baldness can affect both women and men, though it is seen more commonly in men. The causes of pattern baldness are both genetic and hormonal: people who are genetically vulnerable can suffer a reaction to certain sex hormones that causes their hair to thin or stop growing. Hormonal changes can also cause temporary hair loss in people who are not susceptible to pattern baldness. Common causes include childbirth and menopause.

There are a number of specific medical conditions that cause hair loss. Some of the better-known culprits include alopecia areata, an immune system disorder, scalp infections, including ringworm, and various skin disorders that can cause scarring, which prevents hair from growing. Various medications for serious conditions such as cancer and heart disease may have a side effect of causing hair loss.

Temporary hair loss can follow a severe emotional shock, such as the death of a loved one. This type of hair loss usually occurs some months after the shock. Other temporary causes of hair loss include mental disorders that compel the sufferer to pull his or her hair out, there are even certain types of hair styles that can pull the hair tight and cause pulling, or “traction” loss.

By being aware of the many root causes and types of hair loss, it is easier to understand the options available for combating it.
