Women are more concerned about their appearance than men and hair symbolizes female beauty in most cultures. That’s why women often notice their hair loss earlier as compared to men. No doubt men also take hair loss seriously, but women take it as a devastating situation that needs immediate fix at any cost. Unlike men, women do not have this option to shave the entire head to hide any bald patches. Luckily, severe hair loss and baldness is less common in females as compared to their male counterparts, but this fact does not make it a less severe issue.
Studies have shown that over 40% women in the world experience some degree of unusual hair loss at some stage in their lives. If you are one of those 40% women struggling with hair shedding, know these 3 amazing treatments to cure female hair loss in Dubai, UAE and Abu Dhabi.
First thing first: Investigating the Cause
Investigating the underlying cause is more important in the case of women as compared to men. The reason of hair loss in men is obvious—genetics. Men are prone to hair loss, and a trichologist can easily distinguish pattern hair loss from any other hair loss type. In contrast, in women even androgenic alopecia does not exhibit pattern and is characterized by generalized hair thinning over the entire scalp. This is why it is quite common to confuse Female Pattern Baldness with hormonal hair loss.
Consult a trichologist to figure out the exact cause of hair loss. Besides physically examining your scalp, the doctor may also recommend a few tests to be sure about the underlying cause of hair loss. Some of the commonly used tests to detect hair loss type and cause include:
- Antinuclear Antibody (ANA): used to check the presence of autoimmune diseases.
- Iron Deficiency: Females are particularly prone to iron deficiency. This test is used to check if you are suffering from anemic hair loss or not.
- Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH): This test is used to check the status of ovarian output.
- Luteinizing Hormone (LH): Like FSH, LH also indicates the status of ovarian output.
- Free and Total Testosterone: These tests show the woman’s ability to convert testosterone into estrogen – a common cause of pattern baldness in females.
- Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (THS): This test is used to check the status of thyroid hormone.
Finding and treating the underlying cause will have a significant impact on hair loss. In most cases, it will stop further hair loss. It will also reverse hair thinning to some extent. But for that you will definitely need a hair loss treatment.
Here are 3 amazing treatments to cure female hair loss in Dubai:
1- Mesotherapy Treatment:
It is an injection therapy in which a nutrient rich cocktail is injected into the entire scalp, paying special attention to the problem areas. The cocktail injected is a mixture of pharmaceutical medicines, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and herbal supplements. It helps boost blood circulation in the scalp and strengthen hair follicles, thus allowing for healthy, robust hair growth.
2- PRP Hair Loss Therapy:
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a yellowish fluid obtained from the patient’s own blood. Rich in growth factors, PRP works by activating adult stem cells, which not only enhances scalp circulation but also contributes to strengthening the DHT- affected hair follicles.
3- ACell/PRP Therapy:
ACell’s extracellular matrix is a naturally occurring protein which has long been used by surgeons to speed up recovery after major surgeries. When combined with PRP and injected into the scalp, this protein helps fight androgenic hair loss. It works by strengthening the miniaturized hair follicles against ill effects of Dihydrotestosterone. ACell/PRP Therapy in Dubai offers an ideal treatment for mild to moderate hair loss in both men and women. However, it may not be very effective in case where patient has already developed prominent hairless patches.
4- Hair Transplant
In case you have notable hairless patches, a hair transplant surgery may be an ideal procedure for you. Many women are good candidates for hair transplant in Dubai. If a woman has healthy donor hairs, they can be used for transplantation in the affected areas. However, if a woman has generalized thinning of hair all over the head, she may not be an ideal candidate for hair transplantation.
Regardless of the condition and nature of your hair loss, you have the options to treat as well as conceal your hair loss. Choice is always your; the most important thing is the belief that you can win the battle against your hair loss.
