How to Stop Female Baldness

Monday, 01 Nov 2010 03:22 PM

Do you get up in the morning and notice that your hair has fallen out during the night? Have you ever brushed your hair only to find that the number of hairs in your brush has increased phenomenally? If so, you may be suffering from female baldness.
Female balding is a highly prevalent condition. Over 25 million American women suffer from this condition due to various factors including stress, hormonal fluctuations, and genetics. Women who are balding usually suffer from both physical and emotional stress.
A number of treatments are available for female hair loss. However, thinning of the hair that results from chemotherapy or radiotherapy must grow back naturally.

For hair loss that occurs due to various conditions, a number of treatment methods are available. A few are listed below.
1.Medications: As mentioned above, hair loss due to chemotherapy or radiation is not treatable by medication. However, it can be reversed through the use of some medications. Using Rogaine®, which is Topical Mioxidil, is the only option available to such female patients. Rogaine is the only FDA approved drug that is considered a safe and healthy treatment option for hair loss.
2.Laser therapy: To both regenerate strands of hair and to treat thin and fine hair that is highly susceptible to loss, laser hair rejuvenation is a good option. This treatment utilizes a laser, with a low energy level, to ensure that light energy helps regenerate hair follicles in the scalp. This is especially beneficial for those who have female baldness due to medical reasons.
3.Transplant: There are a number of modern, sophisticated transplantation methods like follicular unit hair transplantation and ultra refined follicular unit hair transplantation that are available to treat female hair loss. When there is no other solution, this is the most viable option for female baldness.
4.Noninvasive, Nonsurgical Treatment: Women who do not want either surgical or laser treatments to cure their baldness can opt for this new technique, which treats the whole hair replacement system. This is done by adding new hair to the scalp by replacing individual hairs on bald patches. This treatment also increases the scalp hair density while reducing the bald patches, which are characteristic of female alopecia or female baldness.
