Women's Hair Loss Treatments from Hair Replacement Center of Cedar Rapids, Iowa

For women, the process of hair loss is challenging to measure accurately. Women’s hair typically tends to thin throughout the scalp (Female Pattern Hair Loss, a.k.a. Androgenic Alopecia). This is the most common form of hair loss and can become very advanced before the problem is even noticeable, or treatment achieved. With today’s technology, we can now accurately measure and monitor your hair to detect thinning as soon as it starts. All women can benefit from this form of scalp analysis because it pinpoints thinning and breakage – the most common damage for women — much earlier than other methods. Early detection can make the difference between noticeable hair loss and a successful hair retention/trichology plan. At Hair Replacement Center of Cedar Rapids, IA., there’s no reason for trial and error. We can help you solve your hair loss concerns and create a treatment roadmap for your hair and scalp health.

What causes hair loss in women?

Women's Hair ReplacementLudwig Female Hair Loss ScaleWomen lose hair differently than men. In general, women suffer from what is referred to as diffused hair loss, as compared to the characteristic frontal and crown pattern hair loss that typically presents in men.

Other medical causes of female hair loss are a thyroid hormone imbalance, anemia, low vitamin D levels, post-partum hormone changes, and menopause. Another known cause of hair loss in women is called Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS. Medications such as contraceptives, antihypertensives, steroids, and antidepressants are also possible contributing factors in women’s hair loss.

Physical, psychological, and emotional stress can result in hair loss.  By middle age, approximately 40% of women show signs of pattern hair loss (androgenic alopecia).

Before any treatments can begin, we must first evaluate the underlying causes of your hair loss or thinning hair.  Only then can we begin to address the causes, and recommend a roadmap to begin correcting the issues. One of the steps we can take is, using hair products that have been clinically proven to strengthen your hair, prevent further shedding and nourish the scalp.  These are essential to restoring a healthy amount of hair.

For women with bald areas, or thinning that has exceeded 40-50%, then we look at alternative treatments to restoration, and focus more on hair add-ons andor non-surgical hair replacement solutions.  This is used to restore a youthful hairline, fill in patches of hair loss, or bring back a fuller look throughout. This treatment approach restores not only the hairline but self-confidence and self-esteem!
