YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Hair loss can be a major cause of appearance anxiety women. In fact, it’s more common than you think. Over 50% of women will experience at least some hair loss, and as with men, this is especially true after 50. The most common cause is female-pattern hair loss (FPHL). In extreme cases, complete baldness can occur. At Delaware Hair Restoration, we take the entire client into consideration. Depending on the specific factors of your hair loss, you could be a candidate for injectable treatments or you might be a better candidate for a treatment such as a neograft Hair Transplant. No matter, which option is best for you, Delaware Hair Restoration will help you along the path of your hair restoration journey.

INJECTABLE SOLUTIONS

For women with more recent hair loss, injectable solutions are a good option. These treatments reignite dormant or damaged hair follicles. The treatments are safe and effective and have been used for many years to treat other medical issues such as musculoskeletal conditions.

During the treatment, your provider will take your blood, run it through a medical decvice called a centrifuge and then inject the solution deep into the scalp to reach the bottom of the hair follicle. These injections stimulate specialized cells that play a critical role in hair growth. This treatment is usually a three treatment series spaced 4 weeks apart. Clients at Delaware Hair Restoration see great success with this treatment in combination with other treatments or as a stand alone procedure.

TOPICAL TREATMENTS

The medical treatments that are available to men, such as medications like Propecia (Finasteride) or topical treatments such as Rogaine (Minoxidil), are not safe for women as they can adversely affect hormone levels. There is one topical prescription treatment that is safe for both men and women, Formula 82M, which we offer here at Delaware Hair Restoration. Prescription Formula 82M contains minoxidil, anti-inflammatory agents, tretinoin and various other ingredients to regrow lost hair and stop hair loss in its tracks. It works wonders for some women and men and is often considered the "first line of defense" to stop hair loss in its tracks.

NUTRAFOL SUPPLEMENTS

Delaware Hair Restoration offers a full menu of options for men and women experiencing hair loss or hair thinning. While we are proud to offer the latest in minimally-invasive hair transplant surgery, we also pursue the most unrivaled supplements and vitamins to optimize hair growth. Dr. Tony Cucazzella recommends Nutrafol hair growth vitamins, a one-of-a-kind nutraceutical that is specifically designed for the hair. As a 100% drug-free supplement made of powerful plant-based nutrition, Nutrafol has been proven effective for supporting healthy hair growth as well as balancing the body as a whole.

NEOGRAFT HAIR TRANSPLANT

A neograft hair transplant procedure involves removing individual hair follicles from the back of the head where the hair is thickest and transplanting them one-by-one to the areas where hair has been lost. While it might sound like individually transplanting thousands of hairs would take forever, in the hands of Delaware Hair Restoration, you’ll be amazed at how quickly the procedure can be completed. After the follicles are extracted, they are carefully separated by size. Each follicle can have one to three hairs growing from it and organizing these by size is important to creating a natural looking result. Each individual hair follicle is then transplanted into each of the recipient sites in order to receive the desired outcome. Dr. Tony and the team at Delaware Hair Restoration will work with you to ensure the most natural looking hairline.

Causes of Female Hair Loss

Often female hair loss is genetic, but not always. It’s difficult to determine if one or more factors are contributing to the condition. Female hair loss can occur at any time after the age of 18 years due to various factors. Below are some of the most common causes that can be the culprit for your hair loss.


1. AGE We all know that with age, both men and women start to lose hair as a natural process of aging. 50% of women over 70 years experience loss of at least some hair.

2. GENETICS As suggested earlier, hair loss is often a genetically inherited condition and evident within family members. In severe cases where there is a strong genetic predisposition, hair loss can be seen even at the age of 12 to 14 years.

3. THYROID PROBLEMS/HORMONAL IMBALANCE Hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, or any form of hormonal imbalance in the body can impact the natural hair growth in women. In some cases hair loss can be greatly reduced or even stopped with proper medication.

4. MENOPAUSE This is also a typical issue that can cause hair loss in women. Women of 50 to 60 years may suffer from thinning hair after menopause.

5. HAIR STYLING METHODS Hair tied in tight ponytails may pull hair and cause the hair to become weak at the root. Apart from that, if you constantly style your hair in a manner that causes stretching the hair strands then there are chances of hair loss from it.

6. DIET Our diet affects us in so many ways, one of them is consuming unhealthy food. As the hair requires nutrients for growth and maintenance, it is crucial to focus on what you consume or modify your diet accordingly with the guidance of a nutritionist. This point can’t be emphasized strongly enough. Poor diet is the root cause of the majority of chronic conditions in our society, and while male hair loss if often unavoidable no matter how healthy the diet, women are much more susceptible to hair loss due to poor diet.

7. UNDERLYING DISEASE An undiagnosed disease can affect your hair growth or cause it to fall off unexpectedly. If you are experiencing sudden, rapid hair loss consult your doctor immediately.

8. STRESS AND LIFESTYLE Research shows that women who lead a stressful life often are the common sufferers of female pattern hair loss. Minimizing stressful activities and practicing meditation can help to overcome the concern. It is also encouraged to make fundamental changes in your lifestyle – being sure to get enough sleep and not using toxic chemicals on your hair.

9. IRON DEFICIENCY OR LACK OF VITAMIN B12 Lack of iron and vitamins can be a factor that contributes to hair loss. You can take supplements regularly to ensure that your hair gets the proper nutrition for growth.

10. MEDICATIONS LBirth control pills, blood thinners, antidepressants, specific antibiotics, retinoids, and many other medications can obstruct the natural growth of your hair. In such cases, you must consult with your doctor to take further steps.

11. RADIATION THERAPYPatients who are treated for cancer undergo radiation therapy that can cause extreme hair loss to the point of balding. Hair loss is one of the usual side effects of the treatment so there’s not much that you can do about it. In most cases, your hair will grow back after treatment.
