What is the best treatment for female hair loss?

What is the best treatment for female hair loss?

For many women, hair is a vital part of our personal and social identity. It is an expression of who we are and while there is no cure for hair loss, there are safe, effective, non-surgical female hair loss treatments available at CRLAB Australia. Scientifically formulated to promote healthy hair growth, our trichology range of treatments may help combat chronic scalp anomalies and hair thinning.

The process always begins with an in-depth personalised consultation where we determine the cause and extent of your hair loss. Identifying the cause of your hair loss is the first step to determining which is the best treatment for your hair loss. Ruling out any underlying conditions with a visit to your general practitioner or specialist if required is recommended before jumping into any medications or harsh products that may not be suitable for you. The most common form of female hair loss is androgenic alopecia. This is where gradual thinning is occurring over many years. The best treatments for female pattern hair loss is a multi-factorial approach – nutrition therapy combined with a topical treatment which can address any common scalp anomalies such as high sebum levels or psoriasis / dandruff.

Finding the right solution that works for you is essential. At CRLAB Australia we provide a complete a holistic approach to hair loss. We have 52 years of scientific research behind us and with 125 centres globally, spread over 25 countries, we are confident we have a solution for you.

Non-Surgical Female Hair Loss Treatments

Trichology treatments for hair loss in women – Scientifically formulated to promote healthy hair growth, our range of trichology treatments can help women combat chronic scalp conditions and hair thinning. If you are experiencing any level of hair loss, we can help you by first starting your hair loss revival journey with a trichotest. This test is a microscopic analysis of both your scalp and hair to help identify common issues which could be impeding your hair growth, such as styling product build up, dirt, bacteria, fungus and overall poor hair nutrition. After the test, we recommend hair loss products and services specifically designed to target your needs. All our products are made from natural ingredients including plant stem cells and essential oils to promote healthy hair growth.

CNC Hair Prosthesis System – If you are looking for an immediate solution, the revolutionary CNC system delivers instant and natural looking results for women living with full or partial hair loss. The process begins with a personalised confidential consultation at our clinic in Port Melbourne, where we will determine the cause and extent of your hair loss. After your consultation, we design a custom hair and scalp prosthesis just for you.

Using 3D printing technology, state of the art dermatologically tested materials and the highest quality human hair in the world, the CNC delivers safe, pain-free and proven results. The CNC system can also be styled, cut and coloured with the same convenience as your natural hair and is water, wind, sweat, sun and sleep proof, allowing you to go about a normal, active lifestyle.

Other good treatments for female hair loss are those which can stimulate blood flow to the follicle, such as laser light therapy (Low level light therapy). Low level light therapy (LLLT) is a fast-growing technology used to treat a multitude of conditions that require stimulation, accelerated healing, relief from pain and inflammation and the restoration of functions.

The red light improves the microcirculation for a better supply of nutrients and removes catabolites from the follicle.

Infrared light can penetrate deep into the dermis and stimulate cellular metabolism. The heat produced by them promotes blood flow in the treated area and deep penetration of active ingredients.

The blue light can penetrate bacterial barriers and destroy their DNA. It mainly has an antibacterial effect on the scalp skin, playing a key role in the treatment of common issues such as dandruff and seborrhoea. These are often associated with an excessive presence of micro-organisms and bacteria which cause redness and discomfort.

Benefits of Low-Level Light therapy include:

  • Lymphatic activity increase
  • Better circulation
  • Collagen production
  • Reduced Inflammation
  • Detoxify cells
  • Anti-bacterial and clears free radicals

CRLAB trichology products are formulated with antioxidants to fight free radicals and improve the look and feel of virtually all hair types and scalp conditions. We stock a range of CRLAB products that work to improve any scalp anomalies which in turn promotes healthy hair growth.

Our exclusive ranges assist with sebum control, dryness, flakiness and revitalise.

Vitamin A, C and E are antioxidants that enhance skin cell turnover and collagen synthesis. When applied topically, the antioxidant properties of these vitamins may assist in reducing oxidative stress and free radicals that cause the cells in a hair follicle in the scalp to break down.

Nutritional therapy info:

Clients who are experiencing hair loss may seek information from their GP or they may seek answers online. While there is some useful information online, we advise to be wary when reading information on the internet. Nutritional deficiency can affect both hair growth and hair structure. Studies have shown associations between nutritional deficiency and androgenetic alopecia, female pattern hair loss and alopecia areata.

Due to this, many clients seeking treatment for hair loss enquire about dietary recommendations.

So, if nutritional deficiency affects hair loss, what are the best foods to have healthy hair and growth? Maintaining a diet rich in essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals and getting enough water is paramount in maintaining a healthy scalp and healthy hair growth.

Supplements we recommend:

At CRLAB Australia we stock a highly recommended supplement called Hair Fact which is a comprehensive, holistic approach to strengthening the hair roots promoting follicular growth. As discussed earlier, a common cause of hair loss is nutritional deficiencies however many doctors and hair loss experts prescribe controversial and expensive medications like Minoxidil. Medications such as Minoxidil may treat the symptoms but not the actual root of the cause. Administering too many nutrients together in the wrong combination can lead to reduced absorption and reduced efficiency from inter nutrient interactions.

Hair Fact utilises vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants and herbal combinations to strengthen the hair roots and promote hair growth. The Hair Fact supplement program provides 6 different oral supplements in a cyclical method, where each is taken twice per week.

Scalp anomalies:

Anti-Dandruff products (purple) – Seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff) / psoriasis of the scalp – The CRLAB moisturising products work to gently remove persistent dandruff. They contain alpha hydroxy acids to assist in removing dead skin cells on the scalp to revel a healthy, fresh and revitalised scalp. The aim of these products is to restore the connective layer of the scalp and provide a moisturising action to ensure the formulation of dandruff is reduced.

Sebum regulating products (yellow) – The CRLAB sebum regulating products work to remove excess build up of oil or dandruff to assist with purification of the skin and to refresh the whole scalp. Excess sebum may be caused by hormones, stress, nutrition etc. These factors may contribute to the overall health of the scalp and cause a negative effect on the hair quality making it weak or frail. These products have an astringent effect which gently removes excess oil from the scalp. Jojoba oil and avocado are perceived by the body as being similar to sebum. When applying products with these ingredients included, the result is sebum regulation and a levelling of oils being produced by the body.

Hair loss prevention products (green) – CRLAB also offer a hair loss prevention range of products which work as a preventative method which potently fights thinning and shedding issues, providing volume, energy and vitality to thinning hair. These products work to purify the scalp, reducing the bacterial load and reducing free radicals that may cause damage to the hair. An important element of these products is the activation of micro blood circulation which creates nourishment within the hair bulb.

All CRLAB trichology products contain essential oils which have an antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect, and act as a natural preservative. They are powerful weapons that work to counteract different scalp anomalies.

At CRLAB Australia, we have clients who have reported great success by using both the CRLAB trichology products and taking Hair fact. We therefore believe these are among some of the best treatments for hair loss. If you are still wondering what the best treatment is for you, book in for a consultation with us today!
