Hair loss in women is not uncommon. In fact, in the last ten years, International Hair Studio has seen a definite increase in enquiries about hair loss in women. Today’s lifestyle is perhaps placing different pressures and anxieties on our bodies and minds. These stressors are not always the cause of hair loss but factors that can act as a catalyst to speed up hair loss conditions
Losing your hair as a woman can be extremely difficult. It is less socially expected for a woman to lose her hair compared to a man, and this can lead to women feeling very conscious of their thin hair or visible scalp.
Hair loss is medically known as Alopecia. There are many different types; caused by many different reasons. It is estimated that over 50% of women at some point in their lives will suffer from some thinning hair or hair loss.
If your hair loss is in the early stages of thinning, then this is the best time to seek professional help to have the problem diagnosed. Just like a visit to the dentist, responding to small problems or warning signs often have an easier solution then leaving it until the damage has been done.
Sometimes people aren’t sure if they are actually losing their hair. You may be currently assessing your hair, taking photos, asking friends & family, your hair dresser, or your doctor about your hair and if they have noticed a change.
Hair does fall out naturally as part of its growing cycle, and is also seasonally affected, so hair loss will happen more at certain times of the year. It is so much easier just to come and see an expert. At IHS we can look at your hair and advise you if your hair needs any help. IHS will also provide you with unbiased advice and if you do not need any treatment we can help you keep an eye on it.
There are many types and causes of hair loss in women. Some of the most commonly occurring types are associated with the hormones and the inherited genes. Androgenic Alopecia or Female Pattern Baldness can typically begin causing the hair to fall or thin anytime from the teenage years. These types of hair loss tend to be concentrated more toward the top of the head and can become more evident and increasing in times of hormonal change. Hair loss can be escalated, or sped up, by all forms of internal and external stresses on the mind and the body.
Other types of hair loss include Alopecia Aereata, Alopecia Totalis, Trichotillomania, Traction Alopecia, Lupus, Frontal Fibrosing Syndrome and unfortunately many more. Hair loss can be greatly infuenced by the hormones, stress, the diet, medications or anything at all that effects the bodies environment and balance.
If there is hair that has been lost, whether this has been over time or quite acutely, then the earlier problems are addressed the better. There are many types of hair loss and not all are permanent, and some respond very well to fast action with minor medicinal or therapeutic treatments
Treatments used may include: Topical Medications, properly administered medical grade Laser Therapy, Nutritional Supplementation, Mesotherapy Injection and Intralesional Corticosteriod Injestions.
Instant results or gradual thickening can also be achieved by the powerful “Step by Step” Non-Surgical hair grafting and replacement systems. These can provide thickening and density to even the most advanced hair loss; and the methods are designed to be permanent, safe and importantly enjoyable solution to provide a wonderful healthy head of hair.
Follicular Unit Injection (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) are surgical methods which can also be called upon where necessary and when applicable.
The decision of which treatment would be best for you, should be left to a professional – even in today’s age of self-diagnosis using the internet. Different treatments work better for different people, and an experienced and unbiased professional should be consulted before commencing any type of treatment.
