Research carried out by top trichologist Philip Kingsley suggests that around 8 million women in the UK experience hair loss with 1 in 8 under 35s affected.
Female hair loss is a complex issue with a number of potential underlying causes, making treatment all the more challenging. Common causes include stress, diet/fasting, iron deficiency (anaemia), thyroid problems and cancer treatment.
Hair loss in women is also often linked to hormonal issues such as pregnancy, perimenopause, menopause or PCOS.
Sometimes the issue is genetic. TV celebrity Nadia Sawalha bravely shared this summer that she has the ‘balding gene’. She explained how the loss of her ‘crowning glory’ made her feel.
Treatments for Female Hair Loss
In treating female hair loss, one of the first steps is to understand the cause and aim to treat that first and foremost.
Nutritional deficiencies are not always easy to diagnose, but Clinicbe based in London offer OligoScan advanced cellular testing, a system which measures detailed data on the patient’s body and health, including mineral and trace element deficiencies (due to diet and food choices), accumulation of heavy metals in the body, antioxidant/acidity levels and pure assimilation. Understanding the underlying issues means that they can be addressed through supplements, or even lifestyle changes.
PRP for Hair Loss
PRP – platelet rich plasma therapy – is a treatment option designed to stimulate scalp health. By using a sample of the patient’s own blood, a concentrated plasma solution is created, rich in platelet growth factors. Applied to the scalp, these can stimulate the skin’s own repair mechanism for optimum hair retention
Triple Synergy Hair System
Registered physician, Dr Barbara Kubicka based in Belgravia, Knightsbridge, has developed her own unique and exclusive hair treatment system and has seen good results on treatment with women.
The Triple Synergy Hair System combines 3 separate elements:
- Vitamin supplements: carefully selected vitamins are injected directly intramuscular, where they can be most readily absorbed and serve the most immediate benefit in promoting stronger hair and reducing hair loss
- Mesotherapy: special solutions are injected directly into the skin on the scalp using micro-needles, in order to deliver vital nutrients and minerals to stimulate hair growth and health
- PRP: platelet rich plasma therapy for scalp health
