BEVERLY HILLS TREATMENTS

FOR HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN!

At the Beverly Hills DRx Concierge, we take hair loss matters seriously. We have helped countless women throughout Beverly Hills treat their signs of hair loss successfully. In skilled hands, it has been demonstrated that women with female pattern hair loss due to menopausal, hormonal changes and other causes, saw 90% of hair regrowth in 75% of the individuals treated.

The emotionally debilitating effects of hair loss may have finally come to an end, due to the development of a new treatment. Hair loss affects millions worldwide. The most common form of alopecia is androgenetic alopecia (AGA, pattern hair loss).

Around the middle age, 40% of women start to show hair loss signs. By age 70, approximately 60% of Caucasian women are affected by some degree of hair loss. PRP  and Nanofat Injection Therapy creates a solution to the problem, providing patients with a genetic predisposition to hair loss with new found hope. This non-surgical treatment takes only an hour with a low amount of down time that is almost negligible. No daily maintenance is required, making this a simple and effective solution to average hair loss troubles in women.

SOME THINGS THAT CAN CAUSE HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN:

  • Too much styling
  • Thyroid imbalance
  • Hormone changes
  • Medication
  • Low iron and low vitamin D
  • Braiding and extension hair pieces
  • Trauma
  • Significant weight loss and crash dieting
  • Menopause

Hair loss in men and women although may seems equal, it is in fact very different.  At Beverly Hills DRx, we can dedicate the time and attention needed to fully diagnose the specific causes of each patient’s hair loss in order to tailor a customized medical treatment plan that can satisfy each individual’s hair restoration needs.

For years, to talk about women’s hair loss was considered taboo. In spite of it obviously occurring, hair loss in women was rarely discussed and women were largely expected to suffer in silence. Recent research suggests that as many as one out of every four women can expect to experience some degree of hair loss over the course of their lives, and as more women have come forward to receive treatment, we have been able tremendous progress towards understanding the salient features that make hair loss unique in women.

Traditionally it has been commonlymisconstrued that the gene for baldness is carried but not expressed maternally or by the mother. However, careful study has now demonstrated that this is not completely accurate.In reality, the genes for alopecia or hair loss are transmitted equally from both parents to female or male offspring. The expression or physical manifestation of these genes depends on gene regulators directed by a complex and convoluted series of variables contingent on hormone levels, metabolites, and a number of other relevant factors. Although many women do carry the genes for baldness and can develop thinning hair, the hair loss that these women experience is frequently unlike that typically experienced by men. Although, women very rarely progress to total baldness or complete alopecia,up to 90% experience a more generalized thinning in the midline and central part of the scalp rather than on the crown, seen more in men.

Invariably women are affected by androgenetic alopecia, or what is commonly referred to as pattern hair loss; yet, women’s hair loss is also highly likely to be resultant from any number of different factors, ranging from hormonal changes caused by thyroid abnormalities, menopause, hormone replacement therapy, birth control pills, toemotional, physical stress, post-surgical, traumatic or mechanical stress, medical illnesses, rapid weight loss, nutritional deficiencies,  or to the side effects of common medications. Women can even experience hair loss after giving birth or post-partum hair loss, when hair is triggered into the telogen phase of hair growth cycle, and body excessively sheds the extra hair it accumulates during pregnancy. Clearly, the complexities of women’s hair loss require thorough, individualized, and specialized approaches to both diagnosis and treatment.

At Beverly Hills DRx, we specialize in addressing women’s hair loss, using medical and non-surgical hair restoration treatments. Correcting underlying medical problems, reducing stress, and identifyingother treatable causations are important steps to take before your hair replacement procedure begins.
