Female Hair Loss Treatment

Female Hair Loss treatment

Studies show that over 40% of the women in Dubai – both natives and expatriates – are affected by hair loss. The degree of hair loss in women is less severe than in men. However, its effects can be more devastating for females than their male counterparts. It can be a serious blow to a woman’s self-esteem. However, even though hair loss is quite prevalent in women, our society still hasn’t normalized it for them. They face extreme opposition from other members of society. Women are rarely accepted with bald patches on the head no matter what the cause.

When an individual starts losing hair, they do not exactly know where to go for help and whom to consult. Moreover, since hair loss does not threaten a person’s life, even most of the doctors do not take it seriously. They do not realize how traumatizing and devastating it can be for the sufferer, especially women, for whom hair symbolize beauty.

Is Hair Loss Treatable?

People are often misguided by hearing that hair loss does not have any cure. Once it has started, it will stop at its own after you have lost the due quota of your hair. But this is not true. Every dermatologist is not trained in diagnosing and treating the causes of hair loss. In most cases, they can only treat your scalp if the hair loss is due to a scalp infection. However, if a dermatologist cannot cure your hair loss does not mean it is incurable. The fact is that hair loss is mostly curable and reversible. All that you need to do is, figure out the underlying cause. For properly diagnosing the cause of hair loss and deciding a suitable treatment, you need to consult an experienced dermatologist. Make sure you choose a doctor who has specialized in this area so he can guide you properly.

Hair Loss Causes and Treatments:

A proper female hair loss treatment in Dubai means thoroughly investigating the cause of hair loss and treating it accordingly. Female hair loss is not a widespread problem yet. However, there are doctors available who specialize in hair loss and its treatment. Once you have found the right doctor they will help you in finding the underlying cause of hair loss. While female hair loss may be caused due to several reasons but some reasons are quite common. 

The three most common causes of hair loss in women and their solutions are discussed below.

1. Alopecia Areata – Bald Patches

Alopecia Areata is also known as spot baldness or bald patches. It is a hair condition where hair loss starts happening on some or all areas of the body. The most commonly affected area is the scalp.

Symptoms: The most obvious symptoms include bald patches anywhere on the scalp. They vary in size from a 10-Fil coin to a completely bald head. In some cases, hair loss can be permanent. Moreover, it can happen at any age but it is more common in younger women. 

Causes: The major cause of Alopecia Areata is an auto-immune condition. In this condition, the body’s defence cells attack the hair follicles, eventually destroying them. It may occur after an infection (like flu), vaccination, or due to psychological stress.

Treatment: A steroid injection into the scalp can alleviate the inflammation and trigger regrowth. However, it needs repeated treatment after every 4-6 weeks. Immunotherapy is another option, where a chemical is applied to the skin every week.

2. Diffuse Hair Loss

Diffuse hair loss is a general thinning of hair which can either be temporary or chronic.

Symptoms: The most common symptoms of diffuse hair loss include quick and sudden shedding of normal hair. However, this occurs only after 2-3 months of a triggering event such as a surgery or a high fever etc. Apart from that, a receding hairline can be an obvious symptom.

Causes: It is usually triggered by a medical condition. For example, diabetes (type 1 and 2) or deficiency of nutrition (like iron) can trigger this type of hair loss. Additionally, many different drugs are linked to this problem. Stress and psychological trauma are also associated with diffuse hair loss.

Treatment: In most cases, diffuse hair loss recovers with time. Minoxidil is often prescribed to counter the thinning of hair in women.

3. Androgenic Alopecia – Female Pattern Baldness

Female pattern baldness is the equivalent of male pattern baldness.

Symptoms: In this condition, hair is lost behind the hairline. Usually, there is an oval-shaped area of thinning hair on the top of the head.

Causes: Hormones are a major cause of female pattern baldness. However, some females are genetically more prone to pattern baldness. Moreover, it is quite common after the menopause when estrogen levels drop significantly.

Treatment: Medicines, like Minoxidil, may help but only for as long as you keep using them. Hair transplant surgeries are also an option for women with pattern hair loss. But they are recommended only in case of notable bald patches and healthy donor hair.
