Hair treatment in Barcelona

Alopecia, baldness... what actually are they?

Usually, 85% of our hair is in the growth phase and only 10% in the loss phase. We can therefore lose 50 to 100 hairs a day without it being a cause for concern. The problem is when hair loss accelerates. This is known as alopecia (loss of hair on the body), or baldness when hair loss is localised on the forehead, above the temples and at the top of the head.

Two thirds of men are affected by baldness at some stage in their lives and one third will become bald. It is a very common problem, partly linked to androgenic hormones and consequently most present in men. Other causes of baldness include stress, illness, thyroid or blood disorders, nutrient deficiencies or skin conditions.

Women can also be affected by baldness, but this is more likely to be a distributed loss of hair that very rarely leads to complete baldness.

Baldness in itself is not serious, but it can have important psychological consequences, especially for young men and women, for whom hair holds important social and personal meaning.

How do you know which treatment is best for you?

If you do not know which treatment is best suited to your situation, we invite you to make an appointment for a video consultation or a first face-to-face consultation with our hair specialist.

    What are the treatments for balding?

    How does a hair transplant or PRP treatment at Turó Park Medical Center work?

    During your first consultation, the doctor will carry out a series of tests to identify the causes of the alopecia. These can be varied: unbalanced diet, illness, accidents, medication, heredity, etc.

    Once the diagnosis has been made, they will be able to suggest solutions according to your needs: taking a dietary supplement, PRP treatment to slow down hair loss and stimulate hair growth, hair transplants, etc.

    Whatever treatment plan you choose, you will be accompanied at every stage by an experienced English-speaking team.

    Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about hair treatments

    What dietary supplements should be taken in addition to a hair treatment?

    A dietary supplement based on spirulina can be very beneficial in combating hair loss, especially if it is related to a lack of nutrients. Spirulina fulfils the body's need for nutrients, prevents hair loss and stimulates hair growth.

    Which vitamin should I take to combat hair loss?

    In addition to your treatment, you can take B vitamins. Many dietary supplements are designed to strengthen hair contain, for example, vitamin B8, or biotin, and vitamin B5, or pantothenic acid.

    Which shampoo should I choose to strengthen my hair?

    Look for a shampoo containing ingredients such as vitamins E and B5, iron, copper and zinc. These promote the production of keratin. Keratin is the structural protein of hair and by providing your hair with these nutrients, you will help it grow thick, healthy and strong.
