Let’s Talk Hair Loss

Let’s talk about hair loss 💁‍♂️💁‍♀️

Experiencing hair loss is extremely common among men and women and there are many factors that can cause it. 







1.  Family  History

The most common cause of hair loss happens with aging. This condition, androgenic alopecia, is hereditary. It usually occurs gradually and in predictable patterns.








2. Hormonal Changes & Medical Conditions

A variety of conditions can cause permanent or temporary hair loss. Hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and thyroid problems. Medical conditions include scalp infections, alopecia areata, which is immune system related, and a hair-pulling disorder called trichotillomania.






3. Medication

Hair loss can be a side effect of certain drugs, such as those used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, gout and high blood pressure.








4. Stress

Many people experience a general thinning of hair several months after a physical or emotional shock. This type of hair loss is temporary.








5. Hairstyles & Treatments

Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles that pull your hair tight, such as pigtails or cornrows, can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia. Hot-oil hair treatments and perms can also cause hair to fall out. If scarring occurs, hair loss could be permanent.








On average, a person will lose 50-100 hairs per DAY. However, if hair is falling out in clumps, you’re noticing circular patches of thinning, or simply concerned, it’s time to visit a dermatologist.

It’s Glow Time

Back to the office, back to school, or ready for a refresh? Here’s your guide to glowing skin.

Tip #1 – HydraFacial

HydraFacial uses patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate. The treatment includes gentle exfoliation, painless extractions, and saturation of antioxidants and peptides. In just 3 steps, the HydraFacial creates an instant glow.




Tip #2 – Chemical Peel

Chemical peels can be used to address many skin concerns, but they are especially popular to improve uneven skin tone and dull complexion. The treatment allows new skin to resurface, leaving a brighter and healthier complexion.




Tip #3 – Glycolic Acid

Using products with glycolic acid is key to maintaining a healthy glow. We love SkinCeutical’s glycolic line, Glycolic Renewal Cleanser and Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight. The daily exfoliating cleanser targets dullness and skin texture, while the night cream promotes cell turnover over and sees a 36% average improvement in glowing skin.



Tip #3 – Camellia Glow Oil

Blended with camellia oil, pink tourmaline gemstones and marula oil, the Camellia Glow Oil by Eminence Organics is highly moisturizing. Use in the morning, underneath sunscreen, to reveal an instant and long-lasting glowing skin.
