We have an average of 100,000 to 150,000 hairs on our head, and we typically lose up to 100 of these strands on a regular basis without any issues. At any given time, 90% of these strands of hair are undergoing active growth from the follicles to replenish the lost hundred hairs or so. However, there are hair loss conditions such as involutional alopecia, androgenic alopecia, and telogen effluvium that affect the growth and hair follicle life cycle, leading to an imbalance of strands lost versus strands grown. These conditions are commonly experienced by men, women, and even children. They can significantly affect an individual’s appearance, confidence, and self-esteem in a negative manner.
Currently, there is a variety of hair loss treatments and options available for regaining the luscious hair that was lost, including prescription medications like Propecia and Rogaine, wigs, hair weaving, and hair transplants such as follicular unit extraction (FUE). At the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic, Dr. Torgerson and our team of qualified professionals offer the most recent and advanced techniques as solutions for hair loss restoration to help our clients manage their hair loss and reach their goals.
