Does a Hair Loss Cure for Women Really Exist?

Author: Renato Saltz. MD FACS

It is easy to think that finding a hair loss cure is an issue that only men face. The reality is that there are millions of women who also suffer from hair loss and are desperately searching for a cure.

The good news is that there are ways to treat women’s hair loss, and it is now possible for those women who struggle through life with thinning hair to search for solutions in the same ways that men do.

Let’s look at some of the key details behind female hair loss.

Understanding the Basics About Female Hair Loss and Solutions

  • Why it happens. First of all, the reasons for women’s hair loss aren’t always the same as with men. Therefore, it is important to be sure that hair loss isn’t a sign of an underlying illness. Female hair loss can be a symptom of a number of different medical conditions, or for many women it can be something that is completely natural and genetic.
  • Hormonal issues. In cases where there is a bald patch that resembles the male type of baldness, it could be a sign of hormonal issues. Otherwise, what is seen is more likely to be a general thinning of the hair.
  • Medical treatments. If the reason for thinning hair is genetic, then Minoxidil is the only topical medical treatment that is currently authorized by the FDA. This works by forcing the body into a longer period of hair growth.
  • Follicular Unit Extraction. As with men who are suffering from hair loss, the option of getting FUE treatment has become very popular for women too. This is a way of boosting hair quickly that has proven to be highly successful for both men and women. Since NeoGraft launched one of the first automated FUE systems into the American hair restoration market, Dr. Saltz and other top physicians have selected this device for their practices
