Woman With Hair Loss

We often think of hair loss as a man’s concern as he ages. While male pattern baldness is certainly the most popular type of hair loss, this is a condition that also plagues women. Hair loss in women can be triggered by several different factors. Unfortunately, losing clumps of hair as a woman can be quite devastating, especially since thinning hair in females is not an attractive trait and one that is much less socially accepted compared to men.

What’s Normal and What’s Not

Are you seeing hair in the shower drain or on your hairbrush? This is not only common but normal for women. In fact, the average female sheds 50-100 strands per day, according to Smart Beauty Guide. The shedding of hair is part of a healthy hair growth cycle. However, if you notice that your hair is thinning or coming out in significant amounts, this can be unsettling.

While it is much less talked about, females do suffer from hair loss. The American Hair Loss Association reports that 40% of hair loss sufferers are females! Don’t suffer in silence. There are hair loss treatments available to both men and women to restore healthy hair growth. The first step is to let your dermatologists determine the cause of your hair loss.

Reasons for Hair Loss in Women

Most types of female hair loss and thinning hair is a result of a disruption of the hair growth cycle. There are a number of factors that can cause, including the following:

  • Hormonal changes and pregnancy
  • Metabolic imbalances
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Illness
  • Improper nutrition or vitamin deficiencies
  • Stress

It is important to remember that not all hair loss is permanent or chronic. For example, you may shed an extra amount of hair after delivering a baby as your hormones balance out. This is only temporary. However, if your hair loss seems to be persistent or worsening, it may be time to seek hair restoration from a board certified dermatologist.

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Eve L.

Love this place! Everyone is so caring, and very helpful in each way possible. Highly recommend this place for skin care and even skin cancer!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.

Lisa W.

PA Brown is very attentive to my son's needs. I have not had any difficulty getting appointments when needed. I think this practice provides excellent service. I definitely recommend Kayal Dermatology for all of your skin needs.
