Hair loss in women can often be more distressing than in men. Options for women can also be more restrictive. At Rejuvence Clinic we have a wealth of experience in treating female pattern hair loss. We understand the psychological distress associated with this and can offer very real treatment options that can help to restore confidence. We can offer hair supplements in the form of Viviscal Professional tablets as well as the new Viviscal Hair Growth Programme comprising a combination of medicated shampoos, conditioner and hair elixir. At Rejuvence we are at the forefront of cutting edge platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments for hair loss and can provide bespoke PRP and vitamin cocktail mesotherapy options. If you're losing your hair, don't lose hope.
The occurrence of androgenic alopecia in females is much less then in males. Women suffering with female pattern hair loss will often notice gradual thinning of hair, increased hair shedding and often develop hair loss in the characteristic Christmas tree distribution over the top of the scalp. Women normally avoid losing hair at the front of the hairline in contrast to men. The cause of hair loss is also due to the effects of testosterone. In women suffering from conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, there are often higher levels of circulating testosterone and hence are prone to androgenic alopecia. However, women do not respond as well to treatments such as minoxidil and finasteride as in men. The Ludwig system is used for classification of female pattern hair loss.
