Tier 1 Hair Loss

Hair loss is measured in different “tiers.” Tier 1 is the early stages of hair loss, a common problem for both men and women. Hair loss can begin early in life, with some people noticing the initial stages as early as late adolescence or the early 20s. The thickness and quality of hair is most often determined by genetics, and in some cases, can be a side effect of medication – but modern hair restoration techniques make it possible to limit the amount of hair you lose, and to restore healthy growth through various techniques.

What is Tier 1 Hair Loss?

The symptoms of tier 1 hair loss include the following:

  • Hair strands are thinner and weaker
  • Hair texture changes
  • Increased hair shedding

If you see that the quality and strength of your hair is changing, or you are shedding a large amount of hair every day, early intervention is important. Treating this level of hair loss may involve the use of FDA-approved medications, or the use of PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections. PRP is a product extracted from your own blood that is rich with growth factors that trigger healthier hair growth. Several approved topical medications are known to be effective in halting further hair loss. Only a full evaluation of your current condition will reveal the most effective treatment for your case.
