Hereditary-pattern hair loss is the most common cause of hair loss. It is a natural condition caused by a combination of genetics, hormone levels, and the aging process. Although commonly thought of as a problem for men, it is prevalent in women. In fact, more than 1 in 4 women will experience hereditary hair thinning.
There are surgical and non-surgical steps you can take to restore thicker, more beautiful hair. Not everyone will respond to a single type of treatment, therefore a combination approach to thinning hair is often recommended. Since hereditary-pattern hair loss is an ongoing process, maintenance of therapy is required to sustain results.
Minoxidil (Rogaine) has been clinically proven to reinvigorate thinning hair follicles. When used daily, this over-the-counter topical product can help prevent miniaturization of the hair follicles, resulting in fuller, thicker hair.
Hair Growth Supplements Although once thought to deliver questionable results, today’s most advanced hair supplements have clinically tested ingredients to combat the underlying causes of thinning hair. Taken daily, less hair shedding is typically seen after 2-3 months. However, not all hair supplements are the same and some contain fish-derived proteins so be sure to discuss recommendations and allergies with your dermatologist.
