Hair loses volume and thickness as we age, as hair shafts become finer and some follicles stop producing hair. But for some people, these changes arrive sooner in life and are more pronounced than others.
The good news is that these changes can often be slowed and even reversed with proper treatment targeting the root cause, both for men and women. Nutrafol products and formulas target those underlying factors in ways that can improve hair growth, strengthen hair follicles, and reduce shedding.
Marina Plastic Surgery offers Nutrafol products for hair growth in the Marina Del Rey and Los Angeles area. Nutrafol can be taken on its own or combined with other therapies like PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma), low-level laser light therapy (LLLT), and hair transplants.
Underlying factors that affect your health can profoundly impact your hair, and the causes can be different for everyone. Hormones, stress, the environment, immune or medical conditions, or poor nutrition can cause hair loss. Whatever the reason, it can be hard on our mental health and self-esteem. Your first step in treating the problem is to identify the causes.
Nutrafol's patented formulas target hair loss caused by the following:
Short-term or chronic physical or emotional stress like surgery or a demanding job can cause hair loss.
Your surroundings, the products you use, and the foods you eat can contribute to oxidative damage.
Inflammation, high glycemic diet, and thyroid issues can all influence the immune response and, in turn, cause hair loss and thinning.
Nutrient deficiencies can result from a compromised gut microbiome caused by diet, lifestyle factors, or antibiotics.
DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is an androgen hormone that causes hair follicles to shrink and changes the hair growth cycle to a shorter growth phase.
Available at Marina Plastic Surgery in Marina Del Rey, Nutrafol is a line of nutraceuticals made with medical-grade botanical extracts standardized to clinically effective dosages for consistent potency and with bio-optimized ingredients for the best absorption and results.
Nutrafol's complete hair growth formulas are clinically tested, 100% natural, and drug-free.
Nutrafol products available at Marina Plastic Surgery include hair growth supplements designed to meet the unique needs of men and women and the root causes of hair loss.
An estimated 66 percent of American men experience hair thinning by age 35, while 85% have significantly thinning hair by age 50. It starts before the age of 21 in 25 percent of men who have genetic-related hair loss, according to the American Hair Loss Association (AHLA).
The Nutrafol Men's Hair Growth Pack improves hair growth and strength with visibly thicker hair and scalp coverage. It includes Saw Palmetto, which combats thinning hair by helping prevent testosterone conversion to DHT.
This supplement also contains Tocotrienol Complex, which improves hair density by lowering oxidative stress from the environment, and Sensoril® Ashwagandha, which stress hormones to support the hair growth cycle.
Women typically experience hair loss on the crown, with a noticeable widening part as the hair thins. While it is normal to shed about 50 to 100 hairs per day, losing more than this without new hair growth to replace it results in volume loss.
A major root cause of poor hair growth in women is stress. Hormones can also play a significant role as they fluctuate throughout life, especially during and after childbirth when estrogen and progesterone decline, and cortisol increases by over 200%. Follicles can also be damaged by metabolic changes, nutritional deficits, and environmental exposure, including over-styling, chemicals, and heat.
Nutrafol has formulas designed just for women to improve hair growth, strength, volume, and thickness. These products include:
The Women's Hair Growth Pack has Sensoril® Ashwagandha to support the hair growth cycle, Tocotrienol Complex for hair density, and Marine Collagen to provide amino acids as building blocks of hair-strengthening keratin. This formula is generally best for women between the ages of 18 and 44.
The Postpartum Hair Growth Pack targets the root causes of thinning hair in the first year postpartum, like nutrient depletion and physical and emotional stress. This supplement contains a nourishing blend of breastfeeding-friendly botanicals your hair and body need most to support your whole-body recovery.
The Nutrafol Women's Balance Hair Growth Pack improves hair growth, strength, and thickness through menopause, noticeably reducing shedding. This supplement offers additional hormone-supportive ingredients like Maca, Astaxanthin, and extra Saw Palmetto that are helpful through menopause or for those over 45.
The Stress Adaptogen Booster works by balancing stress hormones with adaptogens like Reishi Mushroom, Schizandra, and Rhodiola extracts.
The Hairbiotic Booster targets gut health as a root cause of thinning hair with seven probiotic strains that support nutrient absorption.
Nutrofol’s Hair Growth Serum is a lightweight topical serum with natural ingredients for visibly thicker, stronger-feeling hair.
Nutrafol is formulated to promote hair growth for all types of hair. While the characteristics of hair strands may vary by ethnicity, the underlying root causes that affect hair follicles can affect all people equally.
The ingredients in Nutrafol products do not have any known interactions with FDA-approved medications for hair loss.
No. The ingredients in Nutrafol are not found to alter testosterone levels. Saw Palmetto inhibits 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT, without affecting testosterone itself.
No. Facial and body hair are triggered by different factors than the hair on our head. Saw Palmetto helps combat DHT, which may actually prevent facial hair growth.
