Menopause, one of the natural and expected events in the life of a woman.
During this phase a woman passes from her productive to her non productive period. This means her ovarian follicles are depleted and no more hormones are secreted (Estrogens-Progesterone), which are responsible for the menstrual cycle.
For 95% of women menopause commences from 39 to 51 years of age approximately.
According to each case this period may last for several months or even years and presents various organic and emotional symptoms among which are sleep disorders, hot flashes, perspiration, lack of energy, stress, depression, emotions of sorrow and loss but we also observe changes in hair growth not only concerning the scalp but other parts of the body as well.
13% of women develop hair thinning prior to menopause. After menopause percentages rise to 37%. Hair loss is located on the upper and parietal areas of the head (androgenic type of alopecia) as well as the pubic area.
Due to hormonal changes the hair lost is more than the body regenerates, while other parts which bore no hair start developing gross hair growth (such as the upper lip and the chin).
Hair growth is a great and important chapter for a woman and has a negative influence on her psychology, resulting in the aggravation of the problem.
The sooner she takes interest in it, the better.
Hair treatments should commence rapidly, as they aim at halting hair loss. Time plays a very important role.
Unfortunately most women refer to their dermatologist quite belated, when thinning is visible on the mirror. This means that hair loss has exceeded 20%.
Hair becomes gradually thinner and fuzzy up to a point when some areas are covered by a layer of very thin and weak hair.
What characterizes female hair loss is that the front line of the hair is maintained and thinning is located mainly on the top and parietal areas of the head.
When we refer to hair treatments we do not mean cosmetic treatments which one can obtain from a super market or their neighborhood hair dressing parlor but to medical treatments (mesotherapies, Laser, plasma therapies PRP, etc) affecting the roots of hair offering all the necessary substances which hormonal disorders gradually deprive.
They are not magic potions or a medication prescribed for a viral infection.
Initially, treatments help in halting hair loss and improving the state of hair so as for it to regain lost volume and appear rich and healthy again.
In areas there loss is irreversible and thinning has appeared, solution is offered through hair implant.
Concerning hair implant, the developed technique FUE offers women with hair loss the possibility to thicken or to fill up in a hair-by-hair fashion the empty areas of their scalp. So they regain new healthy hair!
