Hair Loss Toronto
Fight hair loss with Sovereign Male
Experiencing Hair Loss?
Have you joined the growing number of men trying to fight hair loss in Toronto? You may have seen hair transplant results that look flawless. Maybe others appear obvious, unsuccessful, or have that “can’t quite put my finger on it” telltale look that you’d like to avoid.
Perhaps you’re ready to try platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) or the powerful Theradome laser light therapy (LLT) to combat male pattern baldness.
The Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic and Sovereign Male cater to busy, professional men seeking natural-looking, long-lasting hair loss treatments that restore confidence.
Our doctors specialize in advanced, personalized hair growth treatments, from LLT (low-level laser therapy) and PRP (platelet-rich plasma therapy) to the latest hair transplant surgery transformations.
Hair Loss Toronto: Where Should You Begin?
Some men start their search for a hair loss cure as soon as the first signs of thinning appear. Others struggle with camouflage techniques for years before they make a commitment to finding a solution.
We find that proactive Sovereign Male patients do plenty of their own research online. You may find an abundance of data, promising before and after photos, and some conflicting or confusing information.
Our medical professionals suggest that you speak with a hair transplant specialist in person to help gain clarity and a professional assessment of your scalp and hair.
Beginning with close analysis, detailed conversation, and a discussion of your goals, practical guidance and multiple next steps may be recommended for you.
What Causes Hair Loss?
DHT—If you’re a man or woman combatting hair loss in Toronto, trying to understand the cause might leave you frustrated enough to pull out what hair you have left.
You’ll come across these 3 letters sooner or later, so let’s take a closer look at their meaning.
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is typically implicated in male hair loss. It’s a hormone derived from testosterone that is implicated in pattern baldness (progressive hairline recession and a classic bald spot, which affect up to 2/3 of men).
Even women are affected by hair loss. Nearly half of women report notable hair thinning by mid-life.
Testosterone and DHT are androgen hormones that are responsible for the development of male characteristics, yet they are present in both sexes. Androgenic alopecia refers to the pattern hair loss caused by DHT.
Up to 10% of your testosterone is converted to DHT every day by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase.
DHT helps develop:
- Body hair
- Growth of male genitalia
- Increased muscle mass
- A lower voice
But what does DHT do to hair?
While dihydrotestosterone (DHT) does have benefits, an excess of this hormone can lead to early hair loss by linking to hair follicle receptors and shrinking them so they are unable to support healthy hair. DHT can also shorten the hair growth cycle. That means that your thinner, weaker hairs don’t replace themselves as often over time.
You’ll be able to narrow down a list of possible causes for your hair loss when you visit the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic for your private consultation.
Contributing factors may also include:
- Medical conditions such as alopecia areata or thyroid dysfunction
- Hormonal changes
- Medication side effects
- Stress or trauma
The most common reason why most men suffer from androgenetic alopecia is the variation in their androgen receptor gene that makes hair follicles susceptible to binding with DHT.
This condition tends to “run in the family,” but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re stuck with it. Our doctors have seen countless stunning hair restorations, and they’ll be pleased to begin planning yours.
Toronto Hair Loss Solutions at Sovereign Male and the THTC
DHT blockers or inhibitors have an excellent record of success. While inhibitors lower your DHT production, blockers can prevent DHT from attaching to hair follicles. Options include:
- Finasteride (Propecia), a prescription DHT blocker
- Dutasteride (Avodart), which inhibits DHT production
Minoxidil (Rogaine) is a medication that was originally used to treat blood pressure. However, research has shown that it can accelerate the hair growth cycle when it is applied to the scalp.
PRP for Hair Loss
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) holds growth factors that promote cell growth. Derived from your blood, this naturally powerful extract can be injected to stimulate healthy hair growth.
Today’s modern hair transplant surgeries are outpatient procedures performed with local anaesthetic in the office. The process transfers growing hair from follicle-rich donor areas to regions where hair is thinning or absent.
*FUT (follicular unit transplant) removes a thin strip of scalp tissue from the back of the head. It is dissected under a microscope into follicular units, and then the small follicle sections are implanted where desired.
*FUE (follicular unit extraction) uses a tiny precision punch device to extract follicles, then reimplants the follicles with a microsurgical needle.
Often, our Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic patients see new growth within a few months and enjoy high “take rates” with the majority of implanted hairs flourishing in their new location. Hair that grows at the back of your head tends to be more naturally resistant to DHT, and it carries that longevity with it to your new hairline.
The Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic and Sovereign Male
Whether you choose surgical, non-surgical, or a combination of hair loss treatments, our downtown Toronto, level 3 OHP (out-of-hospital premises) surgical centre welcomes you. Our contemporary facility is equipped with the latest in hair growth technology and surpasses the highest safety standards.
Our Sovereign hair restoration team will treat you with empathy, discretion, and full attention.
When planning a hairline restoration, our surgeons spend significant time carefully designing the pattern, shape, age-appropriateness, and other factors that matter to you. Our goal is always a natural-looking and long-lasting result that looks indistinguishable from your natural locks.
Hair loss treatments are done using a local anaesthetic to ensure that your scalp is numb and comfortable, but you’ll be awake during the procedure, so you can listen to music, use your phone, or nap.
We’ll provide aftercare instructions to protect the treatment area for 7 to 10 days, and you’ll begin to see new growth within roughly 3 to 4 months. Final hair thickness can be seen between 12 and 18 months.
If you require maintenance treatments over time, we’ll be here to follow up and plan with you so that gradual, realistic improvements are continually made.
