Treatment For Female Hair Loss

Treatment For Female Hair Loss

Both women and men should be wary of treatments offering “miraculous‟, “sensational‟ or “guaranteed‟ results. Hair loss is a medical condition and requires medical treatment. As in any medical treatment, the results will vary from person to person and cannot be guaranteed.

FDA approved hair treatments that are suitable for woman are minoxidil (Rogaine®) and the HairMax LaserComb® can be effective treatments; with treatment regimes they require consistent and constant use to maintain any positive result that is achieved. To ascertain how much of a benefit they can be they ideally should be used for a minimum period of 12 months.

Cosmetic, non-medical treatments are available, products to thicken the hair and camouflage areas of low density and thinning. Hair replacement units or wigs can be used and can give a variety of styles for the person to choose from, these are especially preferred if the area of thinning is large and hard to hide.

A hair transplant can be a viable option for woman but can hold wider complications than with men. Whether a woman is suitable for a hair transplant will largely be determined by the pattern of hair loss she suffers from. If the hair loss or thinning enters the donor area or the hair in the area shows signs of miniaturisation or low density it can mean a hair transplant would not be advisable.
