Hair Loss for Women
Hair loss is a common problem for many women. In fact, 50% of all women will suffer from hair loss at some point in their lives.
For women, hair loss usually occurs gradually with the onset of menopause. Hair loss can also occur with age, pregnancy, illness, or as a side effect of medications.
Losing your hair can significantly impact how you look and feel. And it can be just as devastating as it sounds—and just as embarrassing.
Every person is different, and your experience with hair loss will be unique to you. While there is no cure for hair loss, various therapies are accessible to assist women regrowing their hair.
Common Causes of Hair Loss in Women
Women can lose their hair for a variety of reasons. Some of them are more obvious than others—hair loss can be related to medicine, surgery, or even changes in hormones. However, it is also possible to lose your hair for no reason at all.
The most common types of female hair loss include:
This diagnosis is given when a thinning of hair is diffused over the scalp. Events such as stress can prematurely put the roots into a state of rest.
This type of hair loss happens when chemotherapy destroys hair in the growth (or “anagen”) phase. Consequently, the hair falls out before it has a chance to grow. This type of hair loss is generally temporary.
This is a mental health disorder where people have an irresistible urge to pull out their hair. This condition is categorized as an impulse control disorder. Trichotillomania is often confused with alopecia, but the two are different.
The most common cause of hair loss in women is an autoimmune condition called alopecia areata. In fact, this is one of the most common forms of hair loss in people worldwide—both men and women.
Alopecia areata is a condition that results in the sudden, painless loss of hair on the scalp and elsewhere on the body. Though it begins as a small round patch, alopecia areata can result in hair thinning over the entire scalp.
It can be a sudden event where someone wakes up one day with noticeable bald patches but it’s also known to be a progressive condition where hair loss accumulates over time.
Stress, genetics, medications (including birth control), and shampoos can also be causes of hair loss in women.
Hair Loss Treatments for Women
While there is currently no cure for hair loss, many therapies are available to assist women in regrowing their hair.
You may use a topical treatment like Formula 82M, which can help promote new growth, fight against breakage, and give your locks the volume they need. There are other treatments like PRP and Neograft that can help with your hair loss.
Let’s explore these various options and find the best treatment that can benefit your hair.
Formula 82M is a topical treatment that stimulates growth and can help people with thinning hair caused by one or multiple factors listed above.
It is a medical-grade product that is used on both men and women who have thinning hair. It’s suitable for everyone—from teenagers to adults with alopecia areata.
It works by making it easier for your hair to absorb minerals like magnesium and calcium, vital for healthy follicles. This helps stimulate growth so your hair can regrow where it once was.
It can also strengthen your hair, so it’s less prone to breaking during brushing, washing, and styling.
This treatment is also known for improving your hair’s shine and manageability while conditioning the scalp—leaving you with thicker, healthier locks that are full of volume.
PRP Hair Loss Treatment
PRP is one of the best options out there for promoting hair growth. PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, and it’s derived from your own blood.
A specialist uses a simple procedure to take blood that’s then spun in a centrifuge to separate the blood plasma into its different components.
The process includes commercial kits that can optimize PRP for hair growth by creating specific ratios of platelets, white blood cells, and red blood cells.
Once separated, your specialist injects the plasma directly into your scalp. This is where it works best—stimulating your hair follicles to regrow thicker, healthier hair. This is an excellent option for both men and women.
Neograft Hair Restoration System
If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution that can help grow your hair back, then Neograft may be the best option.
Neograft is a minimally invasive hair restoration system that requires no surgery. In fact, it’s considered to be one of the most comfortable and least stressful hair restoration treatments available.
Not only does it use state-of-the-art technology, but Neograft is also a safe and gentle procedure that’s suitable for both men and women who have a normal donor area—so you won’t have to worry about how much hair you have left.
The unique aspect of Neograft is that it only takes the hair you already have and then harvests them into tiny grafts. It’s made up of a unique keratome device and a robot-assisted delivery system, which helps with precision and accuracy.
This ensures your specialist can remove the grafts from your donor area without leaving any unnecessary—and potentially harmful—scars.
Neograft is also a permanent solution, which means you won’t need to go through the procedure again—though regular touch-ups may be necessary after a few years.
