GP’s Notice Increase In Women Treating Hair Loss

hair loss women healthy hair A recent survey has found that the majority of GP’s in the UK have noticed an increase in the number of women seeking to treat their hair loss, with a significant number reporting an increase in the past year alone. Of course, an increase in women wanting to treat their condition doesn’t necessarily mean that more women are experiencing hair loss: it’s more likely that the increase is in the number of women that want to do something about it.

This finding, then, is really encouraging, because it indicates that more women are becoming aware of that fact that there are medically proven hair loss treatment programmes available to them. At Belgravia, we aim to provide an online resource that gives women the facts about hair loss and what they can do to treat it.

Increased Awareness

Hopefully as time goes by, more women and health care professionals are learning that hair loss is not a male-only problem and that many women are affected, too. It is also important that women become aware of the fact that unless it contains the only proven hair loss medication for women, minoxidil, a hair loss treatment can only claim to improve the condition of existing hair.

Minoxidil, which has been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, can halt hair loss for women and also regrow thinning areas. The Belgravia pharmacies produce minoxidil in a variety of strengths, meaning that a dedicated hair loss specialist can establish the ideal combined daily dose for your condition.

Female pattern hair loss is one of the most common causes of hair loss in women, and can occur at any age after puberty, though it mostly begins after the menopause. If the hair on your scalp is growing thinner, that’s probably the reason behind your hair loss. This type of loss occurs when androgen DHT attacks follicles atop the scalp, causing them to shrink and produce thinner, weaker hair.

Highway To Hair Health

Because women cannot take the male hair loss medication Propecia which blocks DHT, we can add several ingredients into our minoxidil solutions and creams which appear to perform a similar function when applied locally. This means that our liquids or high strength minoxidil creams achieve consistently strong results for our many female patients.

Our hair loss specialists do a lot more than determine the optimum medication for your hair loss. As well as providing support seven days a week in person at our Central London clinics, they can be reached over the phone or online to answer any queries you may have. In terms of our treatments, medications are combined with an array of hair growth boosters, which ensure that the hair and scalp are kept in optimum condition to allow the new hair to grow through and remain healthy. Unique treatments and comprehensive care combine to create a truly bespoke service.
