Effective treatments for women experiencing thinning hair and hair loss exist, but the more than 30 million US women affected are often not aware of treatment options.

Hair loss creates an impact on 40% of women, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Many notice the issue as they reach menopause.

“Female hair loss is extremely common and extremely misunderstood,” Alan J. Bauman, MD, a board-certified hair restoration physician, says in a media release from Bauman Medical Group. “While women experience high rates of hair loss just like men do, the public awareness is far below that of what is for men.”

“Women with thinning hair tend to suffer a far greater psychological and social burden than men,” Bauman adds. “It’s important for women to understand that there is a whole range of effective options available for them that can prevent, control, and reverse the hair loss process.”

Factors Believed to Influence Female Hair Loss

  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Diet
  • Health
  • Medication
  • Stress

Bauman, who regularly tests new products and therapies, recommends topical and oral treatments (Rogaine for Women, Formula 82M and Latisse/Bimatoprost); scalp makeovers; low-level laser therapy; vitamins and supplements (Viviscal Pro and “SuperBiotin”); Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy; minimally invasive surgery; hair-replacement systems; genetic testing and the HairCheck hair loss-measurement tool.

He also suggests working with an experienced hair restoration physician to determine the most efficient regimen.
