Hair Loss Awarness 2 - Not Capitalized

August has arrived! Because August is National Hair Loss Awareness Month, we wanted to take the time to address the growing concern of hair loss in women.

Up to 50% of women will suffer from hair loss by the time they reach the age of 50! At Medi Tresse, we are even seeing more and more women in their 20’s and 30’s noticing signs as well. With this vastly growing population of women struggling with hair thinning and loss, it’s important to spread awareness that women experiencing this are not alone, and that there are treatments to help!

One thing we hear from many of our patients is that they often feel like they are suffering from hair loss by themselves.  While many women feel this way, the truth is that hair loss in women is much more common than most people realize. Often thought of as only affecting men, women actually make up 40% of those affected by hair loss in the United States.

While we realize these facts may not give you comfort with your own hair loss, it is important to know that there are many other women out there going through a similar situation as you.  It is also important to know that there are great treatments that have been clinically proven to help. At Medi Tresse, we offer all of the best treatment options currently available; from Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, to Low Level Laser Therapy, to Formula 82M.   While not all treatments are right for every type of hair loss, there are different options to at least slow down or stop the loss for each type of hair loss.

The first step with treatment is always identifying the type of hair loss.  While Female Pattern Hair Loss is the most common type, and is genetic, many women also suffer from other forms of hair loss, including Traction Alopecia, Telogen Effluvium, Alopecia Areata, and Scarring Alopecia.  Some hair loss in women can even be caused from hormone imbalances or thyroid issues.  In honor of National Hair Loss Awareness Month take the first step to learn more about your hair loss and find out what treatment options are available to you.
