I am 45 yr old female and suffering from hair loss since 3 months, what is the best solution for it?


To answer this question we need to understand what is the cause of the hair loss you are experiencing, and according to the cause actually, I can tell you the best treatment for that cause. as I don’t have your complete clinical history so may be suffering from hair loss due to any of the 42 reasons behind that right from androgenetic to nutritional.

But looking at your age I think the following can be your reasons behind hair loss you are experiencing.

  1. menopausal cause.
  2. nutritional causes.
  3. due to the underlying disease.

I will explain in short why I think these are the causes of hair loss in your case.

  1. Menopausal – at the age of around 45 years and plus minus 5 years every woman on the earth experience a phenomenon called menopause i.e. stoppage of the reproductive cycle which occurs due to inactivation of ovaries. as ovaries stop working the hormone is important for normal hair growth ( estrogen) shows diminished levels in blood so causes hair loss. as menopause is also a stressful condition it may also cause hair loss. treatment –    actually this is a completely natural phenomenon but you can try out things like a) maintaining a normal level of the hormone by hormonal replacement therapy. b)  reduce the stress level c) drink lots of water d) take nutritious food. you can try out other treatments after the consultation with the dermatologists, treatments like a) PRP b) MESO therapy c) Microneedling d) medications like minoxidil and finasteride.
  2. Nutritional- lack of nutrition may cause hair loss, lack of iron, b12, d3 may cause hair loss. treatment the obvious treatment for this is vitamin supplements along with the other treatments like a) PRP b) Mesotherapy c) micro needling.
  3. Due to underlying disease – there are many underlying diseases which cause hair loss but at this age usually, the disease is hypothyroidism is the reason. Treatment- treating an underlying disease is the only way out of this.

Mainstream treatments for hair loss

  1. Medications – minoxidil and finasteride are the only FDA approved over the counter medicines available to treat hair loss.
  2. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy–  this is also an FDA-approved treatment available in which growth factors and platelets from patients own blood are injected in the scalp which promotes hair growth.
  3. Mesotherapy – in this treatment some drugs and vitamins are injected in your scalp with the help of small multiple injections.
  4. Low-level laser therapy– this is a noninvasive type of therapy. in which scalp is exposed to the laser light which induces hair growth.

I would suggest you book a consultation with any of our dermatologist and then we can suggest the best treatment after knowing the root cause of your hair loss.

Female Hair Loss: hair loss in women, causes and treatment.

Now a days, hair loss and thinning in women is common. Some time due to genetics or certain medical reasons like thyroid etc. Hair loss in women is observed. The question of what can cause hair loss in women attributes to many factors ranging from simple nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes or stress due to work or mental situation etc. The following section helps you to understand phenomenon of loss of hair in women and ways to prevent hair loss.

The causes of hair loss in females:

Some of the causes are briefed here.

  1. Hair loss due to Certain Nutritional or Vitamin deficiencies: The subclinical nutritional deficiencies of Vit D3 , Vit B12 , iron are chiefly responsible for hair loss due to nutritional deficiencies in females. This can be prevented by following some good hair loss diet plan.
  2. Hormonal hair loss in women: Variation in hormonal levels in the female body has been found to be important reason for hair loss in women. Various hormones that contribute to hormonal hair loss in women are thyroid hormones, oestrogen, progesterone, FHS, LH etc. Also, life changing events like pregnancy or menopause can also contribute to hormonal imbalance in women which may contribute to temporary hair loss.
  3. Stress and hair loss in women: Both mental and physiological stress are increasingly becoming main contributors to hair loss in working women.

We at, HairMD- hair loss clinic in Pune, take care of hairs of our patients by providing them with the best hair loss treatment- customised cocktail therapy for hair loss which is based on proven medical research. Currently, finasteride and Minoxidil are mainstay treatment for hair loss in women and men- mainly to stop the progression of male pattern hair loss or baldness in females and males. Finasteride is a tablet which blocks the hormones- 5-alpha-reductase in the body which is responsible for hair loss. Minoxidil increases the vascularity i.e. blood flow of the scalp and promotes hair growth. Along with Finasteride and Minoxidil, various procedures like platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), mesotherapy, micro needling, and low level laser light therapy (LLLT therapy for hair loss) are done to treat hair loss.

In PRP hair loss treatment, concentrated growth factors extracted from our own blood are delivered to hair follicles on the scalp. In microneedling for hair loss, thousands of micro punctures are created in our scalp with the help of micro needling derma roller devices. These micro punctures results in released of intrinsic growth factors at that site stimulate hair growth.

In low level laser light therapy (LLLT), light from a red cold laser is delivered to the hair, this laser light stimulates the hair follicles for faster growth. LLLT treatment is US FDA approved for hair loss problem. In mesotherapy, growth peptides, plane stem cell extract and various other growth factors are delivered locally to our hair.

All these hair loss treatment & procedures along with medication are responsible for the great results. We have been lucky to treatment more than 119023 & counting hair loss & related patients at HairMD and ClearSkin- Laser and hair clinic and could deliver successful results over the period of 28 years under the umbrella of Dr Dhananjay Chavan, MBBS, DDV- one of best dermatologist in Pune, Karad, Kolhapur.
