Do Treatments for Thinning Hair Work?
Thinning hair can be distressing and a source of insecurity for men and women alike. Both men and women can experience hair loss as they age but individuals can also experience hair thinning at any life stage as a result of genetics, a nutrient deficiency, hormone imbalance, or illnesses and conditions.
Hair can start thinning quite some time before bald patches may appear, or it may never lead to baldness. However, early intervention treatment for thinning hair can be extremely beneficial in avoiding further hair loss and potential bald patches in the future.

Causes Of Hair Thinning
Unfortunately, many factors can cause an individual’s hair to thin and fall out. Significant weight loss, if you have recently had a baby, numerous vitamin deficiencies, and conditions and illness can all cause hair thinning. Genetics is often a major factor in hair thinning. Our genes influence how our hair grows and regularly play a role in receding hairlines, baldness, and hair thinning.
Many elements of our lifestyles can cause us to lose hair and contribute to overall thinning. Habits such as regularly bleaching or coloring your hair, using harsh products and heat, wearing tight hairstyles, and excessive styling can lead to thinning hair.
Similarly, chronic stress can be disastrous for our hair. The presence of excess stress hormones in our body, such as cortisol, can trigger conditions that are related to hair loss. Some conditions cause the hair follicles to enter a resting phase whereby hair can fall out and new hair will not grow.
Changes in the balance of hormones in our bodies, which often occurs as we age, can result in hair loss in women and men. Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy and menopause can also cause hair thinning and loss.
In men, testosterone plays a significant role in hair growth. Men’s testosterone levels naturally decline as they get older, but in some men, this can lead to receding hairlines, thinning hair, shedding hair, significant hair loss, and even complete baldness.
A wide variety of vitamins and minerals support our body’s overall function and help maintain hair growth and healthy hair. A deficiency can hinder our body’s ability to grow and maintain hair and result in thinning. Deficiencies in folic acid, iron, zinc, vitamin D, and other essential minerals and nutrients can contribute to hair thinning.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder whereby an individual’s immune system attacks their hair follicles, which results in hair thinning and sudden hair loss. Alopecia areata can affect all individuals differently. Some may experience mild thinning hair and slow hair loss, whereas others may experience hair falling out quickly and substantial patchy hair loss. Alopecia areata can also affect other types of hair, such as body hair and facial hair
Androgenic alopecia, often known as male and female pattern baldness, differs from alopecia areata as it is caused by the heightened sensitivity of scalp follicles to hormones that act on hair follicles. However, both illnesses can impact hair health and cause devastating hair loss for sufferers.
Methods To Stop Thinning Hair
Individuals suffering from thinning hair have a range of potential treatments and remedies available to them. However, how effective most remedies are can vary substantially between individuals and will depend upon the underlying cause of their thinning hair. Options that could help to minimize hair thinning include:
- Taking multivitamins and supplements (such as folic acid, biotin, omega-3).
- Anti-thinning shampoo or caffeine shampoo.
- Over-the-counter and prescription medications.
- Scalp massages.
- Lifestyle changes, including quitting smoking, reducing stress, and implementing a new hair care regime.
- Surgical hair transplants.
- At-home laser therapy.
- Hair restoration treatments.
Alma TED Hair Restoration
Alma TED hair restoration treatment is a cutting-edge procedure designed to work by combining low-level laser energy with an additional boost of medications and nutrients that support healthy hair to stimulate new hair growth and help sufferers of hair loss and thinning, regardless of the underlying cause.
The Alma TED low-level laser therapy stimulates hair growth at the root and allows targeted treatment of thinning or bald areas. In addition, the treatment also includes trans-epidermal drug delivery (TED) that utilizes revolutionary technology to treat hair loss. The treatment expands the lipid layer in the treatment area, which allows for medications and treatments to absorb effectively and penetrate deep into the scalp. A unique formula is then applied to the treatment area that improves scalp health, promotes a healthy environment for healthy hair, and further stimulates growth.
What Can I Expect From Hair Restoration At Xanadu Med Spa?
The Alma TED hair loss treatment at Xanadu Med Spa is completely pain-free, does not use needles, and is a quick and easy process with no painful recovery time. Each treatment you undergo will last approximately 20 -30 minutes, and with no pain during the treatment, you are free to continue your day as normal after your appointment.
Before you go ahead with your treatment, an experienced technician from Xanadu Med Spa will discuss the specific condition of your hair and your goals for hair restoration. Together we will develop a tailored treatment plan to help you achieve maximum results. When you arrive at Xanadu, our friendly, professional staff will go above and beyond to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed before the procedure starts. Although Alma TED treatments are only short sessions, it is always our priority to ensure our patients have the best experience possible while they are with us.
Who Can Benefit From Alma TED?
The treatment is an effective option for men and women alike looking to treat thinning hair and boost hair growth. Regardless of the cause, Alma TED can yield impressive results for anyone experiencing thinning hair or temporary hair loss, or anyone with a receding hairline or male or female pattern hair loss.
How Does Alma TED Compare To A Hair Transplant?
The Alma TED treatment differs from a surgical hair transplant in many ways. Alma TED is a non-invasive method of stimulating your body’s natural hair growth while providing specially formulated medication to improve the overall health of your scalp and hair follicles to promote future hair growth and potentially minimize future hair loss.
Whereas a hair transplant is a process of surgically inserting an individual hair follicle into the treatment area over and over again to re-populate a thinning or balding area. Alma TED procedures take a more holistic approach to hair restoration by promoting our body’s natural processes as opposed to physically replacing follicles. What this means for Alma TED patients is that there is no use of needles, incisions, or any invasive procedures. This also means that the treatment is much faster and completely pain-free.
Preparing For Your Hair Restoration Treatment
Preparing for your Alma TED treatment at Xanadu Med Spa is relatively simple. Before your appointment, an experienced member of our team will talk through how to prepare and what you can expect on the day. The main preparation required of patients is to attend their session with clean hair without any products or treatments. This is important to ensure the medication is absorbed sufficiently, as certain products can interfere with this process.
What Happens After An Alma TED Procedure?
After your Alma TED treatment, you will need to avoid using hair products or washing your hair for 24 hours after your appointment. Following this, you can go about your business and hair care routine as normal, until your next treatment. On average, most patients require 3 treatment sessions for the best results, but we can discuss our exact recommendations for you and your hair at your free consultation with Xanadu Med Spa.
Unlike alternative, more invasive treatments, patients do not need to take it easy, rest, or even avoid exercise after their appointment. You can go straight back to normal and wait to start seeing your results shortly.
Patients can expect fast results and changes to their hair which will significantly improve their confidence soon after their treatment. Most individuals begin to see the results of the Alma TED hair restoration procedure in approximately 2 weeks.
At first, patients will notice less hair shedding, and typically around 1 month after treatment, patients can see early signs of new hair growth. After two months, the hair will show visible signs of less thinning and increased thickness and volume, and after three months, patients will notice that less of their scalp is visible.
Side Effects Of Alma TED Treatments
Many hair loss treatments come with risks of side effects. Prescription medications cannot control where they promote hair growth, and many medications can result in excess body hair and unwanted hair growth in other areas, amongst other side effects. Other treatments, such as surgical hair transplants, can be painful and have extended recovery periods that can affect a patient’s ability to work and go about their daily life. With at-home remedies, such as scalp massages, shampoos, and vitamins, there is always the concern that the treatments will not be effective or that you are not treating the right underlying cause to see results.
None of these concerns are relevant to the Alma TED hair restoration treatment. The procedure is non-invasive and, as such, carries very low risks of side effects, which are minor in nature.
Your Pain-free Solution For Thinning Hair
Thinning hair and temporary or permanent hair loss can be devastating. Whether the underlying cause is stress, using harsh products, or an illness, hair thinning is more commonplace than people first think. In fact, Alopecia areata is the most common autoimmune disease in the world.
With many options coming with extended recovery periods and pain, or the risk of minimal to no results, it can be hard to know where to turn to fix your thinning hair.
Alma TED offers a simple, pain-free, highly effective, science-based alternative to help patients regain healthy hair and the freedom and confidence that comes with it. Technological advances mean that individuals suffering from hair loss have effective, virtually risk-free options available to them.
