Hair Loss in Women
Why Do Women Lose Hair?
The leading cause of hair loss in females has been attributed to advancing age, relative increased testosterone, menopausal hormone changes, or vitamin deficiencies. These causes can lead to hair follicles becoming dormant, interrupting the normal hair growth cycle. As the hair growth cycle is interrupted, hair strands often shed prematurely, leading to finer, thinner hair and, in some cases, generalized hair loss all over the scalp.
Only through professional treatment can hair follicles be rejuvenated to produce normal hairs again. Growth-factor therapy, derived from Stem Cells with Platelet+Plasma Therapy (PRP), combined with Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT), will stimulate hair follicles and increase blood flow in order to restore natural hair growth.
Female Pattern Hair Loss
Approximately one-third of women in the United States are susceptible to female pattern hair loss, or androgenetic alopecia (AGA). Though similar to male pattern hair loss, the key difference in hair loss between men and women is the pattern of hair loss. In females, hair loss is more evenly distributed over the entire scalp as opposed to the receding hairline that men experience. Female pattern hair loss can have a negative effect on a woman’s self-confidence and sense of self-image, but it doesn’t have to be thanks to effective treatments with long-term results.
Dr. Melamed offers the most effective treatment for women seeking non-surgical hair restoration, Low-Level Laser Therapy. This popular treatment among women has been proven to be effective in stopping hair loss and helping with natural hair regrowth.
FDA-approved, Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is an important part of treating hairloss and thinning hair. LLLT has been proven to effectively treat and control hair loss for men and women by using simple healing principles to stimulate proteins synthesis in cells, creating a healthier, thicker head of hair.
