Temporary hair loss can be caused by a number of things. Sometimes temporary hair loss can last for months and even years. If you are experiencing any type of hair loss, we recommend that you seek an assessment with Dr. Torgerson at the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic. We will be able to determine what may be causing your hair loss as well as provide you with a hair restoration treatment plan that directly relates to your specific type of hair loss.
Two of the main causes of temporary hair loss and of a poor hair transplant result are iron or thyroid issues. The development of hypothyroidism can cause diffuse hair loss throughout the entire scalp. By treating the underlying thyroid hormone deficiency, a patient will be able to return the hair follicles to their normal growth cycle and therefore restore the areas of hair loss.
