women's hair loss causes
women's hair loss causes
While men’s hair loss is typically caused by genetic factors, the causes of women’s hair loss are far more numerous, and more difficult to pin down. While hereditary female hair loss is certainly real, hormonal disorders—including PCOS or thyroid problems—can also lead to thinning hair. Trauma and stress can, in rare cases, lead to hair loss, while medical conditions, surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, and trichotillomania can also be factors. Scalp conditions and skin allergies may also contribute to hair loss—and that’s just the beginning. Ultimately, though, the cause doesn’t matter as much as the solution—and there is always a solution for women’s hair loss. Even if your friends, family, or co-workers tell you “you’re not losing your hair,” by the time most women notice, they have already lost 50% of their hair.
women's hair loss treatments
Different women have different needs and different expectations. As such, we always begin with an evaluation, where we can talk with our clients about the best options available to them. At the time most women come to us they have purchased multiple over the counter hair loss solutions, and visited different doctors with little to no results. At Mane Image we understand what a painful issue this is. We guarantee you will leave here with a definite plan of action to get the head of hair you deserve. Preventative trichological treatments or PRP injection therapy are great for strengthening the hair you have and stimulating growth. Non-Surgical permanent hair restorations, such as the CNC custom 3D printed prosthesis, can create a full, vibrant head of hair, using virgin human hair. Extensions and removable toppers can bring fullness and vibrancy to hair that’s started to thin. Surgical hair restoration—including transplantations—provides additional density and a natural-looking hairline to women faced with either minor or major hair loss. Custom wigs are also available from some of the most skilled wig makers in the country.
Women's Hair Restoration Systems
While women’s hair loss is always a stressful thing, it doesn’t have to be permanent. There are plenty of solutions available through the Mane Image team, including several non-invasive, non-surgical options. CNC Hair Prosthesis, by Cesare Ragazzi, provides a seamless solution that uses real virgin human hair—never before colored or chemically treated in any way—that can be inserted into a membrane that has antibacterial and antifungal properties. The result is a comfortable, natural-looking solution that requires little maintenance and can be made to perfectly match your growing hair. CNC is unlike any other hair system in that the hair reacts just like your hair...natural curl-we can match it, long hair-no problem, fine hair-you got it! Micro Point is another solution, which allows us to affix lightweight, fibrous hair to the shaft of your current, growing hair, making for a seamless and natural-looking hairline and a fuller, thicker head of hair. Micro Point is the only extension for the top of the head that you can’t see. No glue and no sew-ins!
Surgical Hair Restoration for Women
While some women prefer non-surgical solutions, others are prepared to take an even bigger step with a hair transplant. Hair transplant procedures have come a long way in the past few years, and our in-house surgeon can ensure that they are both effective and painless. We offer a range of transplant procedures, as well as plasma rich platelet injections, which use the human growth factor from your own blood to stimulate further hair growth. To learn more about whether surgery is the right option for you, we encourage you to come talk with us in our studio.
Wigs for Women
For centuries, wigs have provided an elegant and simple solution for women faced with thinning hair; today’s wigs are incredible in their lifelike detail, their style, their comfort, and their ease of maintenance. We provide custom wig fittings for clients who are coming to terms with sudden hair loss, such as hair loss from chemotherapy or radiation treatments, and provide only the most beautiful, customized wigs from the world’s finest wig makers. We recommend having your fitting as soon as possible, to start preparing for hair loss before it truly begins.
Extensions & Toppers
For women whose hair has thinned and who are looking to regain length, thickness, or volume, extensions and toppers can both make for good, seamless, non-invasive options. At Mane Image, we are proud to provide extensions and toppers only from the best, most trusted brands—brands we would not hesitate to use ourselves. Extensions and toppers can be made to perfectly match the look and color of your existing hair, or to provide you with a whole new look or style. To learn more about any of these hair restoration solutions, we encourage you to contact us at Mane Image Hair Restoration Clinic today.
hair loss prevention & regrowth
Hair loss does not have to be inevitable. Though the causes can vary, hair loss is often preventable. At the very least, its progress can be stalled and minimized. At Mane Image Hair Restoration Clinic, we provide a number of means by which our clients can keep their hair from thinning, and even to regrow some of what’s been lost. Those who come to us in the earliest stages of hair loss may find that these solutions are all they require; even those who come to us for other hair replacement procedures may embrace these options for safeguarding their hair and keeping any potential, future hair loss at bay.
Laser Hair Growth Therapy
By using low-level lasers, the hair follicle can be stimulated, and in many instances new growth can be generated. Laser methodologies are not only safe and effective, but FDA-approved. At Mane Image Hair Restoration Clinic, men and women alike will find options that fit their lifestyle and help them meet their goals. Take-home laser devices, such as the laser cap, can be used to stimulate hair growth while you read, watch TV, or surf the Web—completely on your own time.
Trichology refers to the study of healthy hair & scalp—a branch of dermatology devoted to keeping the skin on the head clean, healthy, and able to grow hair according to natural, normal rhythms. Surprisingly, conditions of the scalp often prevent men and women from growing hair properly, and often these men and women don’t even realize they have a scalp condition. Mane Image’s stylists can not only evaluate scalp health and identify problems, but also provide a range of topical solutions to keep the scalp healthy and hair growth normal.
Topical Thickening / Regrowth Products
For many clients, topical thickening and regrowth products can provide an easy and effective way to promote ongoing hair growth. These topical products can be especially useful when used in tandem with laser hair regrowth or with other procedures offered at Mane Image. We provide a range of tested, proven, safe, and effective topical solutions for our clients, including prescription Finasteride, prescription M-82, Micro Scalp Pigmentation, Viviscal Pro Oral supplements, Havogen 5 Patches transdermal supplements, Minoxidil topical Vasodialator, Topical Camouflage Derm match, and Viviscal Fibers. To find out which topical solution is right for you, we invite you to visit for an evaluation at Mane Image.
