Understanding Female Hair Loss

Alopecia Areata

With my extensive experience as an Aesthetic Director, spanning over a decade, I have witnessed the profound distress that hair loss can cause among women. Alopecia areata is one of the most common causes I encounter. It’s an autoimmune condition where the body mistakenly attacks hair follicles, leading to patchy hair loss on the scalp and other areas.

Although there’s no cure, I reassure my clients that we have effective treatments to help manage symptoms and encourage regrowth. Depending on the extent of hair loss, I may recommend corticosteroid injections into the scalp, topical medications, or novel therapies to suppress the immune reaction. With the right individualized treatment plan and support, most of my clients are able to achieve cosmetically acceptable regrowth and improved self-confidence. The key is not to lose hope and to seek help early.

While the exact triggers aren’t fully understood, I find that genetics and environmental factors often play a role. Alopecia areata usually starts with one or more coin-sized bald patches that may merge into larger areas. The hair loss is unpredictable – sometimes the hair regrows on its own, other times it may fall out again. In severe cases, it can progress to complete scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis) or loss of all body hair (alopecia universalis).

Severe illness, surgery, or other life-changing events can cause telogen effluvium, a type of hair loss that results in large amounts of hair fallout.

Telogen Effluvium

Telogen effluvium is a form of temporary hair loss I frequently see in my practice. It occurs when a significant proportion of hair follicles prematurely enter the resting phase and start shedding. This is usually triggered by physical or emotional stressors like surgery, childbirth, crash dieting, or a severe illness.

Patients with telogen effluvium often come to me distressed by the amount of hair they’re losing. They may notice handfuls of hair coming out when brushing or showering. The shedding is diffuse, affecting the entire scalp rather than distinct patches. A thorough history and examination can help diagnose telogen effluvium and rule out other causes of hair loss.

The good news is that telogen effluvium is self-limiting. Once the triggering event has passed, the hair follicles gradually return to their growing phase and the shedding slows down. Within 6-9 months, most people see their hair return to its normal fullness. In the meantime, I advise my patients to be gentle with their hair, avoid harsh treatments, and ensure a balanced diet rich in protein, iron, and other nutrients vital for healthy hair.

Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as male or female pattern baldness, is the most common type of hair loss that affects both men and women

Androgenetic Alopecia

As someone who likes to keep things straightforward and easy to understand, let me give you the lowdown on androgenetic alopecia, which is a fancy term for the most common type of hair loss in women, often called female-pattern baldness.

What’s Behind It?

Androgenetic alopecia is like a bad inheritance – it’s mostly about your genes. But it’s not just about what you get from your family tree; hormones play a big part too. The main culprit is a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). When your hair follicles get too cozy with DHT, they start to shrink, and your hair gets thinner and shorter. It’s like the hair’s life cycle gets a speed ticket, going too fast through the growth phase and taking too long of a break before starting to grow again.

What Does It Look Like?

For us ladies, it’s less about getting a bald spot and more about an overall thinning on top of our heads. It’s like your hair is throwing in the towel, especially around the middle part of your scalp. You won’t see a receding hairline like the guys do, but you might notice that your part is getting wider than a river

Good news! Minoxidil is not limited to a specific gender. Both men and women can use it to boost hair growth and address thinning hair concerns.

Top Treatments for Female Hair Loss in Singapore

An understanding of the root cause of hair loss allows for targeted treatment. Singapore offers a variety of world-class therapies for female hair loss, ranging from medical treatments to innovative aesthetic solutions.

Exploring Medicinal Treatments for Hair Loss: Minoxidil and Finasteride

With more than a decade of experience in the aesthetics industry, I have witnessed the profound effect that hair loss can have on an individual’s self-assurance and self-worth. At Wellaholic, we frequently get inquiries from customers about the most effective medicinal treatments for combating hair loss. Based on my experience and research, the two most commonly prescribed medications are minoxidil and finasteride.

Minoxidil, available over-the-counter in topical solutions like Rogaine, works by widening blood vessels and stimulating hair follicles. This results in increased hair growth and thicker hair strands. I always advise customers that regular application is key, and noticeable results may take several months. Finasteride, on the other hand, is a prescription oral medication that inhibits the conversion of testosterone to DHT, a hormone that contributes significantly to hair loss. By reducing DHT levels, finasteride helps slow down hair loss and promote regrowth. However, I caution that it should not be used by pregnant women.

While both minoxidil and finasteride have demonstrated effectiveness, individual results may vary. I recommend customers consult with their doctor to determine the most suitable treatment based on their specific condition and medical history.

a study in 2013 showed that LLLT help provided a 39 percent increase in hair growth over a period of 16 weeks for the 41 males ages 18 to 48 in the study

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Having worked as the Aesthetic Director at Wellaholic, I have personally witnessed the remarkable benefits of Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) in assisting clients who are experiencing hair loss. Over the years, I’ve guided countless individuals through this innovative treatment, witnessing its transformative effects.

LLLT is a non-invasive approach that uses low-level light energy to stimulate hair follicles. During a session, specific wavelengths of light are applied to the scalp. This light is absorbed by the follicles, triggering cellular changes that enhance metabolism and improve blood circulation. The result? An optimal environment for hair growth.

One of the biggest advantages of LLLT is its safety and convenience. It doesn’t involve surgery or medications, making it an attractive option for many clients, especially women seeking to address thinning hair. However, it’s important to understand that results can vary, and patience is key as improvements may take time to become visible. That’s why I always recommend consulting with our experts to determine if LLLT is the right fit based on your specific needs.

The tiny needles used in Scalp RF Microneedling create microchannels in your scalp. These channels kickstart the natural regeneration process of your hair follicles, encouraging them to grow stronger and healthier strands of hair.

Scalp RF Microneedling

Having seen many of our customers with good results (from hair regrowth), I’m excited to introduce Scalp RF Microneedling as an innovative treatment for hair growth at Wellaholic. In my interactions with customers, hair loss is a common concern for both men and women. While topical products can help to an extent, many are looking for more effective non-surgical solutions to restore hair thickness.

That’s where Scalp RF Microneedling comes in. By combining the collagen-boosting effects of microneedling with the deep tissue stimulation of radio frequency energy, this treatment provides a two-pronged approach to revitalizing hair follicles. The microneedles create tiny channels in the scalp to enhance absorption of active ingredients, while the RF energy heats the dermis to tighten skin and increase blood flow to the follicles.

In my experience, Scalp RF Microneedling works well for mild to moderate hair loss and thinning. Most of my patients see noticeable improvement in hair density and thickness after a series of monthly sessions. The procedure is comfortable with numbing cream and has little to no downtime. For optimal results, I recommend pairing the treatment with our hair growth serums and supplements. If you’re struggling with hair loss, I encourage you to visit Wellaholic for a consultation to see if Scalp RF Microneedling is right for you.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that utilizes the natural healing properties of platelets to stimulate hair growth and promote scalp rejuvenation.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

PRP harnesses the natural healing properties of platelets, which are concentrated from a patient’s own blood and re-injected into the scalp. This triggers a potent regenerative response, activating dormant hair follicles and extending the growth phase.

In my interactions with customers, I’ve witnessed the confidence boost they experience as PRP helps restore thicker, healthier hair. The non-surgical nature and low risk of side effects make it an appealing option for many. While results vary, I’ve seen PRP produce visible improvements in hair density and scalp vitality in a majority of cases, especially when combined with a consistent treatment plan.

The key to success with PRP is having realistic expectations and committing to the process. During consultations, I assess each individual’s hair loss condition, explain the anticipated outcomes, and develop a personalized treatment schedule. With the right approach, PRP can be a game-changer for those struggling with thinning hair or hair loss.

Hereditary hair loss is the most common cause of hair loss, and it can start as early as your 20s or 30s.

Selecting the Best Hair Loss Treatment for You

As an Aesthetic Director with over a decade of experience, I’ve worked with countless women struggling with hair loss. Selecting the right treatment is crucial, but it can be overwhelming. The key is taking an individualized approach that considers the severity of hair loss, underlying causes, and the patient’s overall health and preferences.

In my experience, mild cases often respond well to non-invasive options like topical treatments, while more severe hair loss may require advanced procedures. I always start by identifying the root cause, whether it’s hormonal, nutritional, or a medical condition. This allows me to guide patients towards treatments that target their specific triggers.

Ultimately, I believe in empowering women to make informed choices that align with their comfort level and goals. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution. My role is to educate patients on the range of options, from medications to hair transplantation, and support them in selecting a personalized treatment plan for optimal results. With the right approach, it’s absolutely possible to slow hair loss and even regrow hair.
