Female Hair Loss

While thinning hair and baldness is expected and more accepted in men, it is devastating for most women. The women’s hair loss specialists at Medi Tresse are committed to giving hope to women by educating them on the cause of their hair loss and developing a treatment plan individualized for their specific needs. We only recommends those products and treatments that have been properly studied and proven to help female hair loss.

Causes of Hair Loss In Women

While over 95% of hair loss in men is caused by male pattern hair loss (genetics), hair loss in women is often more complex. While genetics is still the largest cause of hair loss in women, many women experience hair loss due to diets, hormones, or even styling.

It is essential that women see a female hair loss specialists as soon as they notice excessive hair shedding or thinning so that a diagnosis for the cause of hair loss can be determined. By the time the scalp is visible through the hair, almost 50% of the density in that area has been lost.  

Most causes of hair loss, especially androgenic alopecia, continue to cause further loss unless treatment is continued. Presently there is no “cure”, but hair restoration treatment can stop further loss and help regrow hair. 

What Should I Expect At My Consultation?

Your first appointment at Medi Tresse is actually a medical consultation.

It is important to bring any other information about your hair loss that would be helpful to us. That would include copies of any blood work, biopsies or other evaluations you may have had. Please bring a list of all of your medications, including supplements. A thorough hair loss history will be taken, as well as a complete medical history.
