Female Hair Loss in Charlotte, NC

Physicians Hair Restoration offers hair restoration for female hair loss to the women of Charlotte, Concord, and the surrounding communities in North Carolina and South Carolina.

Thinning hair and baldness are most often associated with men. More and more women, however, are seeking treatment for hair loss. Almost half of the women in the United States suffer some level of hair loss by 40 years of age. Female hair loss causes extreme emotional distress in women because society is much more accepting of hair loss in men. If you are a woman who is experiencing hair loss, Physicians Hair Restoration can help.

Causes of Female Hair Loss

Ironically, women and men lose their hair due to the same chemical changes in their bodies. Testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which kills hair follicles. While women have only small levels of testosterone in their bodies, the chemical change often creates high enough levels of DHT to trigger women hair loss even though you may have “normal” levels of testosterone in your blood. Other conditions that cause hair loss in women include thyroid conditions, pregnancy, and certain medications.

Diagnosing Women Hair Loss

Because female hair loss is typically caused by hormonal imbalances, your physician may recommend tests to determine the reason for your hair loss. Tests may include blood tests, such as labs for thyroid, iron, hormone levels, and a blood count. Additionally, your physician may conduct tests on your hair and scalp. To develop an effective treatment plan, your physician measures the amount of hair loss and thinning that you have experienced. Two such tests are the Savin Scale and Ludwig Scale.

Female Hair Loss Treatment

In addition to treating your hair loss, your physician works with you to find a treatment that will maintain the proper hormonal balances needed for women. Many prescription medications have been designed to treat men and may cause unwanted side effects in women. Other treatment options are available and will be considered by your physician, such as laser hair therapy, a painless laser procedure that works by stimulating and repairing the cells in your scalp that produce hair. If you would like more information about hair restoration for women, call our office to schedule a consultation appointment.
