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 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.

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.
