The Doctors welcome back dermatologist and Vitalize Spokesperson Dr. Wendy Roberts to discuss how hair loss can affect every aspect of a man and/or woman’s life.
"In the United States alone, approximately 85 percent of men have significant hair thinning before the age of 50 years old and up to 40 percent of women are experiencing hair loss," Dr. Roberts says. "This is devastating to the sufferer’s self-image, confidence, and emotional well-being."
Dr. Andrew Ordon explains hair loss is usually a symptom that something has gone wrong in the body, like a major disease, hormonal imbalance or a short-term medical event like pregnancy or a medication side effect. He also notes that one of the most common causes of hair loss is stress.
In some cases, how someone styles their hair can lead to hair loss. "Traction alopecia is extremely common. This type of hair loss results from mechanical damage to the hair follicle from repeated tension or pulling from [tight] hairstyles," Dr. Roberts says.
In many cases, the hair loss is only temporary and can be treated with the help of a medical doctor. Dr. Roberts says that she treats her patients with the Vitalize Hair Care System and has seen favorable results. According to Dr. Roberts, clinical studies conducted by Vitalize have shown that the Vitalize Hair Care System targets the hair follicle stem cells and resets hair’s natural cycle of growth and is safe for men and women of all ethnicities.
As always, consult your doctor if you have concerns about hair loss.
