As a woman when you enter menopause and start to notice a widening part or see hair thinning around your temples, you can be sure that it is female pattern hair loss– a prominent symptom of menopause. A woman enters menopause about a year after her last menstruation. Menopausal transition or perimenopause pertains to the years preceding when women may experience changes in their period cycles, excessive sweating, and hair loss. This transition usually starts between ages 45 and 55. Estrogen helps keep hair thick and strong in younger women, but around menopause, this hormone falls drastically.
Most doctors and physicians will recommend Minoxidil and/or hormonal treatment. But as most hair care specialists will inform you, there isn’t just one great solution to menopausal hair loss, or any hair loss for that matter. In fact, hair fall best responds to a combination of two or more treatments taken alongside medication. Some of the most effective hair treatments are Hair PRP, Scalp HydraFacial, and Hair threads.
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a treatment that treats hair loss and also promotes the regrowth of hair follicles. This therapy is a three-step process that includes drawing a person’s blood, processing it, and injecting it back into the body. Our blood contains plasma and red blood cells. The plasma carries components like white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors and can help boost the regrowth of hair follicles. This procedure helps control hair loss and even promotes hair growth. Another essential aspect that makes this procedure highly useful is its ability to thicken the hair follicles. Since the procedure involves injecting plasma into the scalp, it is minimally invasive but can draw out visible results. The therapy works in multiple sessions, typically three sessions, 4 to 6 weeks apart.
Mesotherapy is one of the best hair loss treatments where minerals, vitamins, and amino acid cocktails, necessary for hair growth, are injected into the scalp. This nourishes the hair follicles thus thickening thin hair and strengthening it. This treatment forces the immune system to kickstart healing by triggering new cell production to replace old and dead cells. Thus substantially improving hair growth and thickness. It’s perfect for those who want to avoid the risks and side effects associated with more traditional hair loss treatments. It can be used to treat a variety of issues, including bald patches, receding hairlines, and thinning hair.
Keravive is the scalp version of its ultra-popular facial counterpart, the HydraFacial. It might not yet be as popular, but the benefits are astounding. One of its biggest claims is that it leads to fuller-looking thicker hair, by helping cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate, and nourish the scalp and hair roots in that order. The scalp is given a deep cleansing with a vacuum wand that sucks out dirt and sebum to unclog your pores. Beta hydroxyl and salicylic acid are used to exfoliate. Finally, hyaluronic acid is massaged into the scalp to hydrate it Appointments are to be spaced 3 weeks apart. And three sessions are needed to maintain treatment.
Hair loss is a common issue, but it doesn’t have to be a permanent one. Scalp Threads can help you regain your hair’s health, shine, and bounce. This advanced treatment uses PDO threads to stimulate hair regrowth and improve scalp health. These threads are made up of dissolvable proteins thinner than hair. Once activated, these threads will keep dissolving over a period of about two months, all the while slowly releasing nutrients into the scalp to be absorbed by the hair roots. One of the most natural ways of reducing hair fall, which usually is a result of a nutrient deficit diet, PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, enhancing the blood flow to the area, and boosting the production of new hair on the scalp. Scalp threading for men and women is the best hair loss treatment that can promote the health of existing hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth.
