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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes female hair loss?

Women can start thinning or shedding hair for a wide array of reasons as outlined below.

  • Hormonal issues – life stages such as menopause and pregnancy can cause hair loss.
  • Health & medical conditions – nutrient deficiencies, thyroid disorders, and some chronic diseases can result in hair loss as a symptom. Cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation, are well-known causes of hair loss. Physical and/or emotional stress can also result in hair loss.
  • Alopecia Totalis – an advanced form of alopecia areata that has been linked with women’s hair loss. Alopecia totalis is thought to be an autoimmune disorder—one that can trigger total hair loss, not just on the head but also on the body.
  • Female Pattern Baldness – in women, androgenetic alopecia begins with gradual thinning at the part line, followed by increasing diffuse hair loss radiating from the top of the head. Hair follicles change, shrinking and producing a shorter, thinner hair shaft — a process called “follicular miniaturization.” As a result, thicker, pigmented, longer-lived “terminal” hairs are replaced by shorter, thinner, non-pigmented hairs called “vellus.”
What treatments are available?

Here are female hair loss treatments that may help.

  • Scalp Massage – designed to stimulate and promote hair growth.
  • Hair Lotions and Tonics – such as Minoxidil (Rogaine) are available over the counter at pharmacies or from a dermatologist
  • Hair Loss Tablets – are available by prescription from a dermatologist, and include Finasteride, Sprionolactone, Vuproterone acetate. These can have side-affects and can take years to begin to see the desired results.
  • 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.
  • Wigs and Hairpieces – a cheaper, temporary solution, that can be uncomfortable and inconvenient to wear and may not look and feel natural.
  • The CNC System – a non-surgical medical grade scalp and hair prosthetic developed by Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories Italy, that is made using the latest 3D printing and high-quality unprocessed human hair. The CNC gives you complete freedom to live an active life – sweat, sun and waterproof
  • CRLab trichology treatments – to nourish and improve the look and feel of virtually all hair types or scalp conditions.
