Hair loss in women

You’ve heard of male pattern baldness, but did you know that 50% of all women experience significant hair loss by the time they reach 50? According to one study, major hair loss increased to 75% for women over age 65. Vitastim and Biostim used together are proven treatments for female-pattern baldness. Most users see improvements, including a halt to the balding or slowing down of it, as well as thicker hair.

You’ve heard of male pattern baldness, but did you know that 50% of all women experience significant hair loss by the time they reach 50? According to one study, major hair loss increased to 75% for women over age 65.

While harsh chemical treatments like bleaching and perms can contribute to hair loss in women, factors such as stress, poor nutrition, heredity, medical conditions, and chemotherapy are more common factors that cause the hair to fall out, and in some cases, permanently.

So if you’ve noticed more hair in the drain after  shampooing, or some extra strands of hair in your brush, don’t panic. Not all hair loss is permanent. However, female pattern baldness is permanent, and is more prevalent in women as they age.

Here’s what you need to know about female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia), which is the most common type of hair loss from the scalp:
Nearly all cases of head-only hair loss in women is androgenetic alopecia, which is when hair follicles become sensitive to the hormone androgen.
Androgenetic alopecia tends to be heredity and can come from either side of the family. However, approximately 12% of women who get it have no trace of androgenetic alopecia in their genetic history.
Alopecia means baldness, although women do not usually go bald to the extent that men with male pattern baldness do. Women typically experience a gradual thinning of their hair instead, either on top or all over their head.
Hair loss from androgenetic alopecia is permanent, and the thinning continues with the aging process.

ANTI-HAIR LOSS TREATMENT IS SUITABLE FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN: EXCLUSIVE TO THE HAIR CENTRE [ LONDON TRICHOLOGISTS ]

VITASTIM

Considerable empirical evidence has supported the oestrogen like activity of hop extract and recent scientific research has confirmed that hop extract shows a potent acceleration on hair growth in cases of androgenic alopecia.

BIOSTIM

Clinical trials of the natural ingredients have established anti-androgen activity and the ability to suppress di-hydroxy testosterone (DHT) formation, beneficial in cases of androgenic alopecia.  The increased dermal papilla activity increases hair cell production and proliferation, increases the number of hairs in the anagen phase and increases the A/T (anagen/telogen ration).

Vitastim and Biostim used together are proven treatments for female-pattern baldness. Most users see improvements, including a halt to the balding or slowing down of it, as well as thicker hair.

In order to treat hair loss effectively we would recommend that you have a diagnosis made as soon as possible by one of our experienced Westminster Trichologists. Stress can be an aggravator in almost all cases of hair loss and an accurate diagnosis will always, at the very least, take some of the stress away from you.

Gary Heron says: “You’ll have access to the most effective treatments available through The Hair Centre and at a fraction of the cost of going to other Private Commercial Clinics and Centres.”

When it’s time to see the Trichologist: If you begin losing hair rapidly, and or are cosmetically concerned about baldness, consult your Trichologist about treatment options. You can receive a free hair loss consultation with a Westminster Trichologist at our Hair Centre.

The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.
