Dr. David Perez-Meza states that women’s lair loss is very different than male hair loss. The psychological impact alone and options for women are different. Women, when they begin losing their hair, experience thinning of the hair. They either notice a wider part or when pulled back, a thinner ponytail.
Typically hair loss for women comes from genetics but there can be underlying medical conditions or major lifestyle changes that can be the cause as well. Dr. Ryan Welter states that women wait far too long before seeking help and treatments then, become limited.
The medical female pattern baldness treatments available for hereditary hair loss are mostly to stop or slow down the loss of hair, not to re-grow a full head of hair, says Dr. Matt Leavitt.
If you begin to experience thinning of your hair, seek advice from a dermatologist or a hair restoration physician. They will be able to help determine the cause of your hair loss and propose a female baldness treatment plan.
