Women’s hair loss is fundamentally different than men’s hair loss and there have always been different treatment options. For men, a potent medication to use against hair loss is finasteride, but that same drug cannot be used for women. Minoxidil is another medication that has been used for both men and women to increase blood flow to the hair. As of recently, a topical formulation was developed of minoxidil mixed with other ingredients that have been shown to assist with female type hair loss. It is a powerful new tool in the fight against hair loss.
One recommendation that has not changed for both male and female pattern loss is combining treatments. Attacking hair loss from multiple different angles is the best way to get the best results. For female pattern loss, a very common recommendation is combining a topical treatment, like the formulated topical minoxidil, with a fertilizing treatment like platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections. Both of these treatments combat hair loss in different ways, and when you combine treatments that act in different ways, the result tends to be more dramatic. Hair tends to return thicker and healthier than when just one treatment is used.
