How Is Female Hair Loss Treated?

How is female hair loss treated?

Minoxidil (Rogaine) 5% is the only topical medication approved by the FDA for female-pattern hair loss. The once daily use foam treatment regrows hair in 81% of the women who try it.

Minoxidil works by prolonging the growth phase of hair — providing more time for hair to grow out to its full density.

If the hair loss is caused by vitamins deficiency, some supplements may help.

While if it is due to hormonal abnormality, prescription medications such as spironolactone or oral contraceptives may help.

Another treatment option is hair transplantation, in which tiny hair follicles taken from one area of the scalp are transplanted into the affected areas.
