Question: Up to what age do you recommend treatment for female pattern baldness?
Answer: There is no official cut-off age for treating hair loss in women. We take a full medical history of every client we see and, providing the woman is suitable and able to apply the medication, then she may continue treatment as long as required. Generally the natural cut-off point in this respect is 70 years of age for women.
We prescribe Minoxidil to female clients. This is the only hair loss treatment for women which is proven to work. It is licensed by the MHRA and ‘FDA-approved’ for treatment of female pattern hair loss in the UK and USA respectively, which means it has undergone extensive clinical testing to prove its safety and effectiveness.
Hair growth boosters such as the HairMax LaserComb may also be suitable for helping to regrow the thinning hair associated with female hair loss and a specialist will be able to advise as to the most appropriate choices for each individual.
