Treatment for hair loss in women. Thinning hair can be very upsetting, especially for women. Many women will experience some degree of hair loss throughout their lives, and, unfortunately, it’s often part of the aging process.
Hair loss can affect just your scalp or your entire body. It can be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or medications. Anyone can experience hair loss, even women.
Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp. Hereditary hair loss with age is the most common cause of baldness. Some people prefer to let their hair loss run its course untreated and unhidden. Others may cover it up with hairstyles, makeup, hats or scarves. And still, others choose one of the treatments available to prevent further hair loss and to restore growth.
Female Pattern Baldness
Female pattern baldness is a type of hair loss that affects women. The medical name for the condition is androgenetic alopecia.
Although both men and women may experience hair loss, it is not as widespread in women as in men and appears differently.
Men who have hair loss tend to develop a receding hairline and bald spots. Women with female pattern baldness usually experience general hair thinning, which affects the volume of their hair.
In women, the first signs of female pattern baldness may be a widening part or a feeling that the hair does not feel as thick as usual. Although the scalp may be visible, the hairline usually does not recede.
Hair loss is less frequent in women than in men, but it still occurs often. Female pattern baldness increases with age, and fewer than 50 percent of women have a full head of hair for their entire life.
Female Pattern Baldness and Genetic Link
Genetics appears to be a significant factor in developing female pattern baldness, which means it runs in families. Women can inherit the gene for pattern baldness from either parent.
Female pattern baldness tends to be more common as a woman ages and reaches midlife, although it can begin earlier.
It often develops after menopause, so hormonal changes may also be a contributing factor.
Treatment for female pattern baldness can help prevent future hair loss and may result in regrowth of some hair. In most cases, long-term treatment is needed to prevent hair loss from recurring.
