Causes and Solutions for Hair Loss in Women

  • Post category:Blog

Have you started noticing more hair on your hairbrush? Did you just wash your hair and come away with a handful after wringing it out? These things can be alarming, especially to women who pride themselves on their long, luxurious hair. If you are concerned about losing your hair, you need to take a look at these solutions.

What causes hair loss in women?

Hair loss can be caused by a number of factors, some of which can be controlled and some of which cannot. The most common causes of hair loss in women are:

  • Genetics
  • Chronic pulling from repeated hair styles such as tight ponytails or braids.
  • Extreme physical or emotional stress or shock
  • Chemo, radiation therapy, and many medications

Your hair loss could also be caused by a condition called alopecia. This is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks the hair follicles. This means that your hair will go through its growth cycle much faster, and you will lose hair more quickly.

What are the best solutions?

There are many different solutions for hair loss in both men and women. Many people try special shampoos and other hair products trying to find that miracle product that will restore their beautiful hair. Unfortunately, most of these are worthless, and some can actually be harmful.

So what solutions can you trust? We offer three different treatments for hair loss that are completely safe and very effective. 

  • IV ozone therapy: Ozone therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation and autoimmune responses, making it a great treatment for patients with alopecia.
  • LED light therapy also boosts the immune system, but has the added benefits of acting as a treatment for a host of disorders and diseases.
  • Microneedling for hair loss

Microneedling is our preferred treatment for hair loss in both men and women. It is highly effective and completely safe. Other than mild irritation, redness, and mild swelling, you aren’t likely to have any negative effects from this treatment. These mild symptoms usually resolve within 24 to 72 hours.

In microneedling, we apply a pen with many tiny needles that puncture the surface of the skin. This stimulates the body’s own natural healing responses. So when applied to your scalp, it stimulates those hair follicles to repair themselves. 

The human body is truly amazing, and the way it heals itself is often taken for granted. But microneedling harnesses this natural ability and promotes it to reduce or completely stop hair loss in its tracks.
