Did You Know?
Keratin is what hair is made of, which is produced in hair follicles. Follicles produce new hair cells and push the old ones out at a rate of about 6 inches per year. What you know as hair is actually dead keratin cells. There are about 100,000 – 150,000 hairs on a head and you can lose up to 100 of them each day. Hair loss in your brush, shower, or sink is common.
Each individual follicle has its own life cycle.
This cycle can be disrupted by disease, age, and other factors.
The life cycle of the hair follicle has 3 phases:
- Anagen Phase – Hair growth activity with a duration of 2 – 6 years
- Catagen Phase— Hair growth that lasts 2 – 3 weeks
- Telogen Phase– This is the resting phase of the hair that lasts about 2 – 3 months. The shedding hair will then be replaced by new hair and the growing cycle starts over.
Ageing also slows the rate of new hair growth and causes hair loss.
There are many types of hair loss, which is also known as alopecia areata, and alopecia totalis.
As a leader in the hair loss industry for the last 40 years Fabi Of Rome provides affordable hair loss treatment programs. Our state of the art Pro-Scope system is able to have a microscopic view of the scalp. It will take a photo, measure hair thickness, provide clues of hair miniaturization, and air density count per square centimeter. This information will be recorded and used to provide future data in regards to any treatments progression. This is an important tool that’s beneficial to our clients so that they may be able to make an educated decision on how to move forward in choosing their hair care options. This report could be beneficial if presented to your dermatologist or transplant surgeons should a client decide to use a clinical or surgical treatment.
