Are you a man or a woman whose hair is thinning? Thinning hair can be very discouraging, particularly when it happens to you as a young person. Although a number of treatments are available for thinning hair, it is hard to beat a hair restoration treatment at our office for results that appear natural and permanent.
Thinning Hair in Women
One of the main causes of thinning hair among women is hormonal fluctuations that can occur around the time of menopause. Other factors include scalp conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, as well as nutritional deficiencies.
Male Thinning Hair
In men, the main cause of thinning hair tends to be an increasing sensitivity to a sex hormone called DHT. DHT is converted from testosterone and can really take a toll on your hair follicles. This can lead to a gradual miniaturization of hair follicles. Each subsequent hair cycle produces a smaller and smaller hair until the follicle grows completely dormant and no longer produces hair. When this happens enough times, you have a bare area on your scalp.
Hair Restoration Treatments
Rogaine, medically known as minoxidil, is perhaps the most popular type of topical hair restoration treatment. It has been available for a few decades now as a liquid that is applied twice daily to the scalp in affected areas. Although many men notice positive results from Rogaine, many also experience very little regrowth. Men are typically able to keep their hair or only slow down their present rate of hair loss.
Propecia, also known as finasteride, is an oral medication that is prescribed in cases of hair loss. The product is typically taken once per day. Although this medication can slow hair loss, or partially regrow hair in certain cases, it may also lead to a loss of libido, or even gynecomastia.
