Maybe it is the environment, or possibly because women are living longer, or maybe it’s all the coloring and chemicals women are using on their hair, or even the effects from the decades of being on birth control. Maybe it is a combination of all of the above or none of the above. Somewhere along the way I am seeing more women in a month than I used to see in a year. Female hair loss is becoming more and more of a major issue. That being said the science and technology of today’s hair medications and restoration have given this new segment of the hair loss generation new hope.
There is new hope for women with Hair Loss
Women need to understand that there is a major difference that marketing experts are constantly trying to disguise. There is thickening your hair and growing more hair, and the difference between these two procedures is like putting a bandage on a cut or putting sutures or stiches on a cut. Many patients we see have purchased expensive shampoos or supplements off the web or from hair stylists claiming to thicken hair, and some of them actually do what they claim to do—add body or thickness to the patient’s hair. The problem is that the lady is really looking to have more hair not necessarily thicken the thinning strands that she has left.
There are many options that may help, but only one real solution
Today women have many options that may help them awaken their follicles and generate some regrowth. These options include Minoxidol, which comes in many products but is best known by the product name Rogaine. Another option is low level laser which includes one that is approved by the FDA call Hair Max, another option medically approved is a chemical taken orally called Finasteride, but better known as a pharmaceutical product called Propecia which is only recommended for post-menopausal women and a relatively new option is PRP treatments which may stimulate dormant follicles. The key word in the headline is all these treatments may slow down or stop hair loss or thinning, but rarely are any of these techniques successful at growing hair with the density most woman are looking for to style and grow to suit their expectations.
