Hair Loss is a very common problem for women, affecting nearly 50% of women at some point in their lives. However, as it is such an emotional topic, many women suffer in silence. They are too embarrassed to talk about it, which only prolongs their misunderstanding. The good news is that there is help.
Since opening in 2015, we at Medi Tresse have heard from thousands of women who are searching for solutions for their hair loss. Taking that first step and calling us often takes a great deal of courage. We provide a very supportive experience for our patients, and truly understand all aspects of treatment. The good news is that there are some great new therapies available for women experiencing hair loss, including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, Low Lever Laser Therapy (LLLT), and specially formulated minoxidil compounds.
The most important part of treatment is a proper diagnosis and early treatment. Once the scalp is visible through the hair, almost 50% of the density in that area is already lost. That is why it is so important to seek treatment as soon as you notice any excessive shedding or thinning. It is essential that you meet with a hair loss specialist who is experienced in treating women so that a proper diagnosis can be made and an appropriate treatment plan is developed. There are many potential causes of hair loss, and the treatment plan can vary depending on the cause.
3 Female Hair Loss Tips
• Start treatment early. The best treatment is prevention. It is easier to prevent further loss than it is to restore what has already been lost. Get a proper evaluation as soon as you start to notice any changes.
• See a female hair loss specialist. The first step in treatment is a proper diagnosis. An experienced hair loss specialist can provide a correct diagnosis and develop a proper treatment.
• Know you are not alone. Many women are experiencing hair loss and there are great treatment options available for you.
