Discover the essential facts about Hair Loss Prevention and Treatment, and ask any questions you may have!

Hair loss is a normal daily occurrence; the average person loses up to 112 hairs a day. However, if you experience more than usual shedding, it’s wise to take notice.

If you’re experiencing excessive hair loss or thinning after combing or washing, it’s a good idea to make an appointment with a dermatologist.

But, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Read on to learn more about the top doubts concerning hair loss.

Dr. Szerman explains the hair loss treatment in this video:

When Is Hair Loss Considered Normal?

During the colder months of fall and winter, hair loss is normal, but should be minimal. That is, colder days cause more hair loss than summer days; however, this is typically normal.

With limited sunshine, people tend to take extended, hot showers, which may contribute to hair loss. If excessive shedding is experienced, a hair loss specialist should be consulted.

Hair loss is also common during summer due to exposure to chlorine, salt water, and sun, which can irritate the scalp.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss is often due to aging and genetics, and may be inherited (If a parent is experiencing hair loss, there is a strong likelihood that their child will also experience it). But that doesn’t mean you should dismiss the issue.

There are several available treatment options for those affected by hereditary alopecia or age-related hair loss.

 In addition to the two main causes of hair loss, there are many others that affect both men and women alike. Some of the common causes of hair loss are outlined below.


Stress can cause or worsen existing hair loss, whether physical or mental. Seeking solutions that foster a quieter lifestyle can help mitigate hair loss.


Pregnancy can cause hormonal changes that lead to hair loss in some women, though this is uncommon. Post-partum hair shedding is much more common.

Hair loss is often caused by hormone imbalances, which can weaken strands. It is best to consult with a dermatologist when attempting to treat this condition.


The thyroid gland is essential for hormone production, enabling proper functioning of vital organs. An inadequate production of hormones from this gland affects hair growth and health, resulting in hair loss.

Taking medications

Treatment for hair loss may be necessary when taking medications such as antidepressants or blood pressure regulators, as hair loss can be a side effect. Before taking any medication, make sure to read the package insert.

Anticoagulants and ibuprofen may contribute to hair loss, and contraceptives can worsen or cause hair loss.

Hormonal changes

During and following pregnancy, hormones can impact hair health; similarly, shifts in hormones due to other causes can also affect hair. If you experience severe hair loss, it is important to consult a dermatologist, as they are experts in treating hair loss.


Smoking poses numerous health risks, including potential hair damage. Men who smoke are particularly vulnerable to developing hair rarefaction.

Cigarettes contain toxic substances that can damage your hair. These substances cause vessels that carry nutrients to the hair root to narrow, preventing those essential nutrients from getting to the hair and leading to hair loss and weak hair.

Oncology treatment and hair loss

Certain cancer treatments can inhibit the division of hair-producing cells.

Approximately 1-3 weeks after beginning treatment, patients may experience thinning and breakage of their hair, which can reach a loss of up to 90%. Once treatment concludes, hair will usually regrow, although treatments to stimilate this can sometimes be necessary.

Anemia (low iron levels) in the blood

Poor iron absorption can contribute to hair loss, as some people struggle to absorb adequate amounts of iron.

Women with excessive menstrual bleeding may become deficient in iron.

Blood tests can detect low levels of iron, which can be corrected with medications or tablets. Consult a dermatologist to discuss available treatments for hair loss.

Major surgery and chronic diseases

Major surgery and can cause hair loss 1-3 months post-operation. This is a common side effect among these patients. This condition typically resolves itself after a few months, unlike chronic diseases.


Types of Hair Loss

Hair loss comes in many forms, but basically, there are three types of hair loss:

Androgenetic alopecia

Androgenetic hair loss is the most common type of hair loss in both men (50%) and women (25%). This form of hair loss typically affects the top and front of the scalp, and is often the main reason why people seek treatment.

Androgenetic alopecia is a physiological condition often caused by genetics, which can lead to permanent hair loss if left untreated. Prompt treatment is advised to help prevent the condition from worsening.

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata, a type of hair loss caused by stress or other emotional factors, typically involves sudden, patchy baldness in areas such as the beard, eyelashes, eyebrows, and scalp.

Traction alopecia

Traction alopecia is common in women due to tight braids or hairstyles, particularly around the sides of the scalp, bangs, nape, and behind the ears. This hair loss condition is a frequent cause of seeking hair loss treatment.

Hair Loss Prevention

Hair loss is a common problem for both men and women caused mainly by genetic conditions. In males, hair loss can also be linked to the hormone androgen.

To maintain healthy hair and prevent hair loss, daily care is essential. This may include:

  • To maintain healthy hair, it is essential to practice good hair hygiene. Not washing the hair regularly will cause dirt, oil and pollutants to build up and clog the follicles, preventing the hair from receiving the necessary nourishment to grow.
  • Avoid using combs, brushes, and vigorous drying with towels on wet hair, as it is more fragile.
  • Begin brushing your hair near the roots and gently work your way to the ends of the hair. This will help spread the oil from the follicles evenly throughout the strands. Use soft combs and brushes for best results.
  • To protect your hair from damage, try not to wear tight ponytails or braids. When possible, let your hair down – these hairstyles can lead to hair loss.

Regularly care for your hair to avoid premature hair loss!

Myths and Truths About Hair Loss


What Are the Best Treatments for Hair Loss?

The hair industry is continually evolving, leading to the introduction of many treatments for various types of hair loss. Of the most popular and well-known treatments available are MMP Scalp Microinfusion and Laser Hair Therapy.

What Is MMP Treatment for Hair Loss?

Scalp Microinfusion (MMP) is a non-surgical treatment for hair loss that involves infusing drugs into the dermis using micro-needling. It is known to be effective.

This minimally invasive procedure inserts drugs into the treated area to stimulate hair growth in a simple, safe, and effective manner.

How Does the MMP Hair Treatment Work?

MMP is a widely used treatment for hair loss. It involves injecting small amounts of drugs into the scalp’s surface layers, stimulating metabolism, and improving oxygenation which in turn strengthens hair growth.

The type of drugs used for treatment is determined by a specialist and can vary depending on the individual. Common treatments involve vitamins, enzyme blockers, and growth factors.


MMP is an effective treatment for hair thinning and complete hair loss, especially in cases of baldness. Additionally, it is also useful for use either before or after a hair transplant.

Both men and women of any age can receive treatment, though it is essential to seek medical diagnosis first. Those with blood clotting disorders should not undergo this procedure.

What Is the Duration of MMP?

For optimal results, MMP scalp treatment should be done monthly for three months, followed by maintenance treatments spaced three or six months apart, depending on individual needs.

Are There Contraindications for MMP Treatment?

MMP treatment carries the same contraindications as other injectable medications; if unsure, consult a doctor for further information.



Is It Possible to Combine MMP Treatment for Hair Loss With Another Procedure?

The MMP technique can be combined with other hair treatments to optimize outcomes.

What Is Laser Therapy for Hair Loss?

Laser hair loss treatment uses low-intensity to increase blood circulation in the scalp, reactivating hair growth in balding areas. It has been used as an effective solution for hair loss and is increasingly becoming a popular treatment option.

At Clinica de Pele, we offer Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to stimulate hair growth.

How Does Laser Hair Loss Treatment Work?

The laser hair therapy is done with a helmet that has 69 focused laser beams.

These laser beams boost blood circulation and deliver vital nutrients to the scalp, resulting in stronger hair and stimulation of hair growth in the treated areas.

Laser hair therapy can also help prevent existing, healthy hair from shedding.

It is a painless process with noticeable results in 2–3 months. To achieve the desired outcome, 6–12 sessions should be completed, each 15 days apart.

Indication and Benefits of Laser Hair Therapy

Laser hair loss treatment may provide multiple benefits, including reduced hair shedding, improved thickness of existing hair, and potential regrowth of hair. Clinical studies support the indication of laser therapy for non-invasive treatment of genetic hair loss in both men and women.

It is highly recommended for those suffering from hair loss. This is because laser treatment prevents hair loss without affecting the existing hair’s structure.

This treatment is effective for rapid healing and is often used post-operatively for those who have undergone hair transplantation.

Laser hair treatments are also beneficial in treating seborrheic dermatitis.

Precautions During Laser Treatment

Laser treatment requires careful attention from the patient for optimal results. Be sure to follow all medical instructions given.

Patients undergoing laser hair treatment can carry on with their usual activities but limit sun exposure.

The laser treatment is safe and free of side effects, but it must be performed by a dermatologist if used to treat hair loss.

How Much Does an MMP Session Cost?

The cost of an MMP session in Rio de Janeiro can range from R$800 to R$1000. This cost may vary depending on extent of hair loss, necessary medications, and the number of sessions needed. To get the most accurate cost, make an assessment with a specialist in hair loss treatment.

How Many MMP Sessions Are Needed?

The number of treatment sessions for hair loss varies based on the size and type of the issue being treated. In most cases, a 3-month intensive phase of monthly sessions is recommended, followed by maintenance sessions every 3 or 6 months.

Sessions last approximately 45 minutes and should be spaced at least 20-30 days apart.

What Is the Recovery Process Like After MMP Treatment?

Understanding the MMP procedure is important, but it’s also essential to learn how recovery goes after the procedure.

Although MMP is a secure, low-risk procedure, after the procedure, it is important for the patient to take precautionary measures, such as:

  • Do not wash your hair before your session; for ongoing sessions, use your usual shampoo after the first day. 
  • Avoid direct sunlight for 2–3 days after the session.

Post treatment, some redness in the treated area is normal. This reaction is temporary and should fade in a short period of time. If any other reactions appear, seek medical advice right away.

How Long Until MMP Treatment Results Are Visible?

Evidence suggests MMP is effective, however, results can vary greatly between organisms and the time it takes to become visible. Starting treatment sooner is beneficial, as it will achieve better results in a shorter time frame.
