What are the Causes and Symptoms of Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a common concern affecting millions of people worldwide. Studies show that approximately 35 million men and 21 million women in the United States alone suffer from hair loss. Globally, it's estimated that around 60% of men and 50% of women will experience hair loss by age 50.

Causes of Hair Loss

  • Genetic factors
  • Hormonal imbalances, particularly those related to thyroid issues, pregnancy, menopause, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Certain medical conditions, such as alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder, can cause patchy hair loss
  • Scalp infections and skin disorders like psoriasis can also contribute to hair shedding
  • Medication side effects including those used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, and high blood pressure
  • Medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy
  • A lack of essential nutrients, particularly iron, vitamin D, protein, and other vitamins and minerals
  • Significant physical or emotional stress can trigger a type of hair loss called telogen effluvium, where hair prematurely enters the resting phase and falls out in large amounts

Symptoms of Hair Loss

  • Gradual Thinning on Top of the Head: This is the most common type of hair loss, affecting both men and women as they age. In men, hair often begins to recede at the hairline on the forehead, while women typically experience a broadening of the part in their hair.
  • Patchy Bald Spots: Some people experience smooth, coin-sized bald spots, usually on the scalp. Sometimes, the skin may become itchy or painful before the hair falls out.
  • Sudden Loosening of Hair A physical or emotional shock can cause hair to loosen. Handfuls of hair may come out when combing, washing, or even after gentle tugging. This type of hair loss usually causes overall hair thinning but is temporary.
  • Full-Body Hair Loss: Some conditions and medical treatments, such as chemotherapy for cancer, can result in hair loss all over the body. The hair usually grows back.
  • Scaling Patches that Spread Over the Scalp: This is a sign of ringworm. They are accompanied by broken hair, redness, swelling, and, at times, oozing.

What You Need to Know About Hair Loss in Men

Most of Dr. Scarpidis’ hair restoration patients are men seeking solutions to address their unique hair loss concerns. Let’s look at some of the common causes and symptoms men face:

  • Genetics: Men's most prevalent cause of hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, commonly known as male pattern baldness. This hereditary condition leads to a predictable pattern of hair thinning and loss, often starting with a receding hairline and thinning at the crown.
  • Hormonal Changes: Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of testosterone, plays a significant role in male pattern baldness. High levels of DHT can shrink hair follicles, resulting in shorter and finer hair until hair growth ceases altogether.
  • Receding Hairline: One of the first signs of male pattern baldness is a receding hairline, typically forming an "M" shape as hair thins around the temples.
  • Thinning at the Crown: Another common symptom is thinning at the crown of the head, which may eventually lead to bald spots.
  • Overall Hair Thinning: Men may notice a general hair thinning on the top of the head, resulting in a more diffuse hair loss pattern.
  • Patchy Bald Spots: Men can sometimes experience small, circular bald spots due to conditions like alopecia areata. This type of hair loss can also occur in beards or eyebrows.

Transforming Lives and Hair Lines with Hair Restoration

Hair restoration refers to several options to address hair loss and thinning, offering patients a chance to regain their confidence and youthful appearance with minimal downtime. These treatments and procedures are tailored to meet each patient's unique needs, effectively addressing various causes of hair loss, from genetic factors to hormonal imbalances and medical conditions.

Here are the hair restoration methods we proudly offer at Scarpidis Aesthetics:

Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure where hair follicles from one part of the body, known as the donor site, are moved to a bald or balding part, the recipient site. There are two techniques primarily used to treat male pattern baldness:

  • Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): This involves removing a strip of skin with hair follicles from the donor area, which is then divided into individual grafts.
  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): In this procedure, individual hair follicles are removed directly from the scalp and implanted in the balding areas.

Exosomes Hair Therapy

Exosome hair therapy is an advanced non-surgical treatment for hair loss that uses exosomes—microscopic vesicles derived from stem cells—to stimulate hair follicles. These vesicles act as cell-to-cell communicators, promoting hair growth by delivering specific growth factors and proteins to hair follicle cells. During the procedure, the exosomes are applied topically directly onto the scalp, where thinning occurs.

PRP Hair Treatment

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) hair restoration is another procedure that harnesses the body's natural healing abilities to stimulate hair growth. A small amount of the patient's blood is drawn and processed to isolate the platelet-rich plasma containing growth factors and proteins that promote tissue regeneration. This concentrated PRP is then applied topically onto the scalp in areas experiencing hair thinning or loss to stimulate the hair follicles, improve blood circulation to the scalp, and encourage the production of new hair cells.

Scalp Microneedling

Scalp microneedling, sometimes called collagen induction therapy, involves using tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the scalp. This triggers the body's wound-healing processes, enhancing blood circulation and increasing the availability of nutrients to hair follicles, potentially resulting in improved hair density.


Nutrafol addresses hair health from within with natural ingredients and clinically researched botanicals, vitamins, and minerals that target the root causes of hair thinning and promote thicker, healthier hair growth. These supplements nourish hair follicles, reduce inflammation, balance hormones, and support overall hair health.

Am I a Good Candidate for Hair Restoration?

Hair Transplantation

  • Candidates should have a stable pattern of hair loss, meaning their hair loss has slowed or stopped
  • Sufficient healthy hair follicles in donor areas, typically the back or sides of the scalp
  • Good general health without chronic conditions that could affect healing
  • Preferably a non-smoker, as smoking can impair healing and affect results

Exosomes Hair Therapy

  • Best suited for those in the early to moderate stages of hair loss
  • A generally healthy scalp without significant scarring or damage
  • Willingness to attend multiple sessions and follow-up appointments as required

PRP Hair Treatment

  • Suitable for those experiencing thinning hair rather than complete baldness
  • Adequate platelet levels to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment
  • Free from platelet or bleeding disorders and other conditions that could interfere with treatment
  • Preferably a non-smoker to promote better healing
  • Understanding that results vary and multiple treatments may be needed for optimal outcomes

Scalp Microneedling

  • Effective for those with early to moderate thinning or hair loss
  • A scalp that is free from active infections, acne, or other conditions that might be aggravated by microneedling
  • No underlying health issues that could affect healing or response to treatment
  • Comfortable with minor discomfort during the procedure
  • Willingness to undergo several sessions for the best results.
