Hair Loss in Men and Women

Hair loss is a prevalent condition that impacts both men and women, caused by various factors such as family history, medical conditions, medications, and hormonal changes. Female pattern hair loss is the most typical type of hair loss in women, which is distinguished by hair shedding and thinning or balding on the top of the head. 

Minoxidil (Rogaine) is an FDA-approved medication that can help increase hair regrowth and is effective for both men and women. It operates by enhancing blood circulation to the hair follicles and can be topically administered to the scalp. To determine the underlying cause of hair loss, a blood test may be conducted to check for any deficiencies or imbalances. 

Alopecia Areata

Another type of hair loss is alopecia areata, which is caused by an autoimmune disorder and can lead to patchy hair loss on the scalp and other parts of the body. Meanwhile, androgenetic alopecia, also referred to as male or female pattern baldness, is another prevalent form of hair loss. 

This condition is typically indicated by a receding hairline and thinning of hair on the top of the scalp. Consulting with a healthcare professional is advised to determine the most effective treatment for hair loss, as they can evaluate the specific type and severity of the condition.

When you realize you are losing hair, in most cases, panic will set in first and then you likely want to see a hair loss clinic for a consultation to start a hair loss treatment immediately to restore your hair.

This is all well and good. While fast action is excellent for preventing additional hair loss, it’s always important from a professional standpoint to first measure how fast you lose hair before starting treatment.

AAPE Hair Loss Therapy

At Hair Loss Clinic, We use AAPE Hair Loss Therapy to stop hair loss and provide strategies and options for faster hair growth in Greater Toronto

AAPE is a mixture of refined growth factors extracted from human adipose-derived cells conditioned media and induces the proliferation of dermal papilla cells of human hair follicles to make hair regrow twice faster.

PRP Hair Loss Therapy

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) hair loss therapy is a non-surgical treatment that involves injecting a patient’s own plasma into the scalp area to stimulate hair growth. The procedure involves drawing blood from the patient, which is then processed to separate the platelet-rich plasma. The patient’s scalp is then injected with the plasma at the level of the hair follicles. This therapy can improve hair growth and thickness, and is believed to work by promoting the healing and regeneration of damaged hair follicles. PRP hair loss therapy is an increasingly popular treatment option for individuals experiencing hair loss.

During our in-off consultation with clients, perhaps one of the biggest questions we get asked is: Why Do I Need To Measure My Hair Loss, especially if you are already losing hair? 

This is a great question, well, one reason to measure hair loss is that it can be deceiving, and we all lose a certain amount of hair daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.

Men tend to lose 50 to 100 hair each day, so it could be completely natural if you notice your hair falling out in the shower.

Hamilton-Norwood Scale

Fortunately, several classification systems can help you measure the extent of baldness or hair loss if you live in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. In Canada, the Hamilton-Norwood Scale is among the more popular scales used by hair loss clinics and patients to measure alopecia or male pattern baldness syndrome.

With this, the Norwood Scale is straightforward to use because it is based on a series of reference images that help easy identification of the various stages or levels of baldness in men.

Based on the extent and patterns of your hair loss, the Norwood scale provides seven stages of classification, referenced against an image showing a specific level and way of baldness.

Depending upon which picture matches the patient’s hair loss level and pattern, the hair loss technician can measure the extent of male pattern baldness and the severity of baldness and suggest the appropriate hair loss treatment for the patient.

Measuring your hair loss is crucial because it will help you determine what treatment works best in Toronto and Greater Toronto Area. 


If you are a man living in Toronto or the Greater Toronto Area and believe you are suffering from male hair loss, then using the Norwood Scale is suitable to measure your hair loss level.

The Norwood Scale has seven stages, ranging from minor hair loss and no hair loss to complete baldness.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) and AAPE (Adipose-derived Stem Cell Protein Extract) are both treatments that have gained popularity for hair loss. PRP therapy involves injecting platelet-rich plasma into the scalp to stimulate hair growth, while AAPE involves using a mixture of stem cell proteins derived from human fat tissue to promote hair growth.

While both treatments have shown promise in clinical studies, there is currently no definitive answer as to which is the better treatment for hair loss. Some studies suggest that PRP may be more effective for certain types of hair loss, such as androgenetic alopecia, while AAPE may be more effective for alopecia areata.
