Common Reasons Women Lose Their Hair
When most people think of hair loss, they assume it is a condition that mostly happens in men. However there are several factors which can cause women can also experience this kind of loss as well.
The three trimesters of a pregnancy are full of a wide range of hormones that can affect women in many different ways. The hormonal fluctuation combined with severe stress on the body means that pregnancy could be a trigger for hair loss. Most women who see hair loss notice it after the baby is born. If you feel like you have less hair now than before you gave birth, you might want to talk to the experts at El Con Health and Wellness Center.
Sometimes there is no escaping hair loss, especially if there is a history of it with the women in your family. Female-pattern hair loss is the feminine equivalent of male pattern baldness. If you know that women in your family have suffered from thinning hair, you might want to talk to the experts before it happens to find a way to prevent it.
Your emotions affect your body more directly than you might realize. Severe emotional stresses can often lead to hair loss. If you notice that you are still losing your hair after you feel less stressed, it might be time to make an appointment at the med spa for a consultation that can help you find a solution.
If your iron levels are too low, it could be a reason that you are losing so much hair. Talk to your doctor about testing your blood to check on your iron levels. If you are deficient, you can start taking a supplement that should help reduce the side effects of anemia.
What Can be Done to Reverse Hair Loss in Women?
If you have experienced hair loss, and have already corrected physical causes of hair loss such as hormonal imbalance, lack of vitamins, or severe stress, and are looking for ways to regrow your hair, El Con health and Wellness Center can help guide you through several treatment options. There are several topical treatments such as serums and shampoos that can be used to help thicken existing hair, and stimulate new growth. In conjunction with oral supplements, these treatments can help either short or long term hair loss, and help maintain new growth once it appears.
A more dramatic option is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments. During such a treatment, a clinician will draw your blood, and then spin it to separate out your blood’s serum. This serum contains growth factors which, when stabilized and re-injected into your scalp, can stimulate old follicles into growth. It is generally recommended that this treatment be repeated several times for optimal results, and is an excellent option for those who have a sudden change in the amount of hair they can grow.
