Hair Loss Treatment for Women
For women, hair is a vital part of our personal and social identity. The way our hair weaves, curls, shines, and flows is an expression of who we are, that’s why most women take great pride in how their hair looks.
Women who experience hair loss can feel many negative emotions – emptiness or loss of self-worth as well difficulty enjoying activities that were previously enjoyable including sexual life.
While hair loss and baldness are predominately experienced by men, excessive hair loss and thinning also affects many women. Almost 60% of women will experience minor hair loss as they age, and 20% will experience moderate to severe hair loss.
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 range of trichology treatments can help combat chronic scalp conditions and hair thinning. The revolutionary CNC hair prosthesis system delivers instant and natural results for people living with full or partial hair loss. Of course, 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.

All of our products are made from natural ingredients including plant stem cells and essential oils to promote healthy hair growth.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Androgenetic Alopecia – Female pattern hair loss (FPHL)
Female hair loss is much more common than you might think. Androgenetic alopecia, also known as female pattern hair loss (FPHL), is the most widespread type of female hair loss. It affects over 55 per cent of women in Australia. In many cases, the hair loss is only subtle but up to 20 per cent of women will experience moderate to severe hair loss which begins with gradual thinning at the part line, followed by increasing diffuse hair loss radiating from the top of the head.
2. Health & medical conditions
Nutrient deficiencies, thyroid disorders, and some chronic diseases can result in hair loss as a symptom. Physical and/or emotional stress can also result in hair loss.
Cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation, are well-known causes of hair loss. Chemotherapy drugs are powerful medications that rapidly attack growing cancer cells. Unfortunately, these drugs also attack other cells, including those in your hair roots and cause your hair to shed and fall out. While your hair often grows back after undergoing chemotherapy treatment, your hair may temporarily be a different shade or texture.
3. Hormonal issues
Thinning hair often becomes more prominent in women when their hormones fluctuate. Post-pregnancy, changes in prescribed contraception and going through menopause can all cause hair loss and change the consistency of your hair. Menopause is a particularly common cause of female hair loss. During menopause, a woman’s body produces lower levels of estrogen and progesterone. When theses hormones drop, hair grows more slowly and becomes much thinner. A decrease in these hormones also triggers an increase in androgens – a group of male hormones. These hormones are also responsible for shrinking hair follicles which can accelerate the issue.
- Surgical Hair Transplants – FUE and FUT involves removing hair follicles from one area of the scalp and implanting them to another area. These expensive and invasive procedures can be risky and, in some instances, just don’t work due to donor hair availability.
