Hair Loss From Atorvastatin

Hair Loss From Atorvastatin

Statins are drugs that manage high cholesterol. While cholesterol is vital to help your body build new cells, insulate nerves, and make hormones, excessive cholesterol build-up in arteries can block blood flow in arteries, called atherosclerosis. Chest pain can result from this. If something completely cuts off a portion of your blood flow, it can lead to a heart attack. Statins help prevent the build-up of cholesterol in the bloodstream.

Although rare, all statin drugs, including atorvastatin, may cause hair loss. Statins block a specific liver enzyme, hindering cholesterol production. Only about one percent of all statin users experience hair loss due to these drugs. The exact mechanism for this is unknown, but cholesterol is an essential building block for steroid hormones contributing to hair growth.

Studies show that stopping atorvastatin reverses hair loss, but it returns if the drug is resumed. Some patients experience hair loss from statins, as evidence shows. People who need these drugs can’t simply stop taking statins. They have to keep taking them despite the loss of hair.

There is something they can do, however. Hairline Ink has a solution for this type of hair loss due to statins: scalp pigmentation. Our skilled practitioners use computer-controlled machines to pigment your scalp, creating a natural look. We can give your scalp a three-dimensional appearance that resembles natural hair. And the solution is permanent.

If you have unsightly scars on your scalp, we can make them vanish with scar camouflage. We offer Scalp Micropigmentation in over 50 US cities. Call or text us today at 833-HAIR-INK (833-424-7465) to schedule an appointment, learn about our pricing, or get a free quote!
