A Silent Issue: Women and Hair Loss
By Katie Snyder

Fact: Hair loss is no longer just a men’s issue, it affects women too.

And if you’ve ever glanced down at your hairbrush and found a sizable clump of freshly-pulled hair, or looked at your hair and realized it appeared way thinner than it used to be, you know how frightening it can be.

“Today, more than 21 million women suffer from hair loss across the United States,” said William Gaunitz WTS, founder of Evolution Hair Centers. “While most common in older women, it can affect even women who are in their 20’s and 30’s.”

Every year, the taboo topic leaves women of all ages suffering in silence as they search for reasons why and solutions to fix their often embarrassing condition.
The good news? There are answers.

Is my hair loss normal?

Not all hair loss is bad hair loss. As women age, their hair will naturally fall out and replace itself with a fresh hair in the follicle. But there are other factors that may determine if the hair loss is more permanent—like genetics.

“If you have hair loss and the androgenetic alopecia gene, which is the hereditary female pattern hair loss gene, and it runs in either side of the family tree, you are more likely to have female pattern thinning and hair loss,” said Gaunitz.

This isn’t always the case. There may also be other factors including health conditions, family history and lifestyle factors that lead to the two other most common hair loss conditions among women: telogen effluvium, the shedding of hair brought on by stressful events or illness, and alopecia areata, a recurrent disease that results in a typical pattern of diffuse hair thinning over the middle scalp.

According to William Gaunitz, other factors might include:

Hormonal Imbalance

This can be caused by unbalanced levels of androgens, namely dihydrotestosterone(DHT) and estrogen. Other hormonal imbalances such as thyroid problems and genetic hormonal responses to autoimmune conditions can also cause thinning of the hair.

Stress

Remember that saying “you’re going to make my hair fall out?” Well it’s true. When women experience stress, the adrenal glands become overworked it increases the levels of cortisol in the body. In return, a woman can produce an excess of hormones that can sometimes cause the hair to fall out.

Pregnancy

After a pregnancy a woman’s hormones can be in disarray. It is perfectly common for post-partum mothers to experience thinning of the hair and even bald patches. In most cases, once the hormone levels have balanced back out, the hair should grow back.

Birth Control

Perhaps the most common is birth control. When women start and stop birth control it changes the levels or hormones in their body which can temporarily cause hair loss.

Prevention and Treatment Options

“While you cannot fight your genes, you can fight the effects of aging and hormonal imbalance,” said Gaunitz. “While losing hair can be embarrassing, chances are it’s something that’s easily treatable.”

Being able to analyze full medical history, as well as details relating to lifestyle, family, diet and any medication you may be taking is essential to getting the right diagnosis and treatment.

Other helpful hair loss prevention tips:

•    Use organic and anti-inflammatory shampoos and other products that are cleansing to the scalp to help flush out hormonal build up inside the hair follicles.
•    Maintain a healthy diet full of fiber and vitamin rich foods.
•    Try out over the counter products such as Minoxidil (Rogaine).
•    Make sure to use the right nutritional supplements.

“Hormones can be easily manipulated in women with nutritional supplements,” said Gaunitz. “The combination of the right nutritional supplements, healthy diet and organic shampoo and conditioner will usually stop a female’s hair loss.”

For more extreme cases, low level laser therapy is also available for women who want to increase the quantity and quality of hair in the hair shaft that is already being produced.

Women Hair Loss – Why Does it happen? and What can you do about it?

Posted by William Gaunitz on Fri, Feb 22, 2013 @ 07:33 PM
What used to be a “men’s condition” is now quickly becoming a female epidemic. It is scary to think that you could randomly wake up one day and begin to see more hair on the pillow case and less on your head.

For women losing their hair, it is a serious blow to femininity and the ideal vision of themselves. We are constantly cutting and coloring to make sure our hair looks the best it can. But what if one day the un-thinkable happens… and it falls out and doesn’t grow back?

Female Hair Loss on the Rise

In a recent study by the Dermatology Online Journal, it states that at least 10 percent of pre-menopausal women will experience hair loss and that a staggering 50 percent to 75 percent of women will lose hair after 64 years of age. In a recent report on NBC Online it states these numbers are low and that female hair loss is seriously on the rise.

But why are women losing hair now more than ever? And what can be done about it? After contacting numerous hair loss professionals in the valley, one seemed to have his finger on the pulse of the problem, and this is what he said:

Question: What causes women’s hair loss?

Answer: Female hair loss can be caused by multiple factors, but the most common cause is an underlying genetic pre-disposition to hair loss known as androgenetic alopecia or female pattern hair loss.  Unlike the popular myth that you inherit hair loss from your mother’s father, women can inherit hair loss from either side of the family. This means that women can inherit hair loss from men and vice versa. It is much more common than people know.

There are other factors that can cause hair loss or increase hair loss due to family history. They include stress, lifestyle, diet, thyroid dis-function, fungal infections, scalp parasites, and medications (most common hormone replacement and birth control pills).

Question: How you do know what is causing your hair loss?

Answer: A simple patient history is the easiest way. Many women have blood tests for hormonal issues, thyroid dysfunction, iron levels, and vitamin D deficiency.  Unfortunately this rarely produces any other cause other than normal pattern hair loss.

At our clinics we use a video microscope to analyze the condition of the scalp at 50x magnification. At this level we can tell if the client has loss due to stress, diet, infection of the hair follicle, or simple hormonally related hair loss.

Question: Is there hope for women with thinning hair? How do you control it?

Answer: There certainly is. There are so many tools that can be used to control female hair loss and reverse it in many cases. Once you have established the reason for the hair loss and it can be treated with a variety of methods. Unfortunately, most general physicians simply don’t have the time or the knowledge to get a full understanding of why a woman is losing her hair. The female patient is then left combing the internet for solutions that rarely leads to any real answer.

Questions: What do your clinics use to help women with thinning hair?

Answer: Depending on the reason for the loss, the treatment protocol will vary. Usually though for common female pattern hair loss the protocol is relatively similar. We a have a 9 month program that includes twice weekly office visits for cool light laser treatments for the scalp. This stimulates cell regeneration and is already approved to promote thicker hair.

Our program also includes topical pharmaceuticals, hormone therapy balancing cream, nutritional supplementation, holistic hair care products, and topical scalp serums. This is most aggressive treatment that we offer, but it works. When you use everything together the way that our program does, you are bound to get results.

Question: What advice would you give a woman who is dealing with this problem?

Find the source of the problem as quickly as possible and treat that problem. Don’t try to treat it yourself because you are wasting time that could be spent growing hair back. I obviously would recommend to call us and then come to the clinic for a consultation. Worst case scenario, you can stop the progression of the loss. Best case, we can dramatically reverse your hair loss and regrow hair.

We have had numerous cases where a woman was wearing a wig or extensions when they started the treatment. Then 9 months later they were able to remove their wig permanently or stop getting extensions because their hair had gained so much volume and density.

Question: Is there maintenance required?

Answer: 99% yes. I usually tell people it’s like brushing your teeth. If you don’t brush them and go to the dentist, your teeth will rot and fall out. The same goes for your hair.  If you have a genetic hair loss problem, you have two options; one- you can treat the problem long term, or two- let your hair fall out and go bald. Clearly our clients choose hair.

Phoenix Hair Restoration – things you should know.

Posted by William Gaunitz on Sat, Feb 16, 2013 @ 01:39 AM

Surgical Hair Restoration or hair transplantation is an irreversible surgical procedure. In Phoenix Arizona there are many physicians to choose from. Hair restoration surgery has risks and rewards that you should be aware of before you spend thousands of dollars and may not happy with the appearance post treatment. You must choose your physician or treatment wisely and do your research. Learn about Hair Restoration Surgery Alternatives.

Who should NOT get Surgical Hair Restoration?

Women
Women are usually not good candidates for surgical hair transplantation due to how women lose hair. Women lose hair in a diffuse pattern which makes the transplanted hair susceptible to loss after transplantation. Only women over the age of 45 years of age and with isolated small areas of baldness should get a hair transplant. Female Hair Loss Treatment

Young men under the age of 25
Men under the age 25 are also usually not a good candidates for hair transplantation because it’s unclear how bald he may become later in life. The younger a man is when he begins to lose hair, usually the greater the area of loss down the road. This could be problematic when a young man gets a hair transplant because the area that is covered by a transplant or multiple hair restoration surgeries will most likely continue to bald. If this happens, it will result in an unnatural appearance that looks “puggy” or future additional balding areas will not be able to covered by additional hair transplants because the donor area has already been used up.


Who should get Hair Transplantation?

Men over the age of 30 that have no possibility of hair regrowth in a given area of the scalp are good candidates for hair restoration. Additionally the best candidates are:

  • Men who have a receding hair line
  • Men who are unwilling to use products daily to maintain their hair
  • Men who lost hair over a long period of time
  • Men who have lighter hair

Men over the age of 30 who meet the above criteria could be a good candidate for hair restoration. It is wise to research your alternatives. Now with new hair loss treatments, you can actually regrow hair using a multi therapy hair loss treatment program. Do your research before making any surgical decision that is irreversible.


Phoenix Hair Restoration Alternatives 

For those people who do not want surgery or who are not a candidate for hair restoration surgery in Phoenix AZ have a powerful treatment option that could stop your hair loss and reverse thinning hair. This is ideal for the people listed above that do have hair transplant surgery as an option.
