Harper’s Bazaar, one of the premier beauty publications, recently tackled a cosmetic concern we hear quite frequently here at The Savin Center – that of female hair loss. While some may believe this is an uncommon problem, we know otherwise. “Female balding is an extremely common concern,” says board-certified dermatologist and hair loss treatment pioneer, Dr. Ronald Savin.
Female hair loss is so common that, “half of all women will experience it at some point in their lives. While it’s normal to shed between 50 and 150 hairs a day, anything more can be cause for concern,” the article stated. “We like to blame it on hormones, stress and poor nutrition, but in reality it’s hereditary hair loss (most often spotted on the crown and along the center part) that accounts for 95 percent of thinning. The first thing to do is find products proven to stimulate growth.”
Harper’s Bazaar’s recommendation? None other than the ingredient pioneered right here at The Savin Center – minoxidil. “It’s the only FDA-approved topical hair growth treatment for the scalp,” the article stated. “Be patient and give it 4 months to see results.”
CT board-certified dermatologist Dr. Ronald Savin takes a deeper look into hair loss and balding and thoroughly examines the hair and scalp. Depending on the findings, our team customizes a medical, non-surgical treatment plan. Through prescription medication, topical products and more, we can slow and prevent further hair loss as well as help to regrow hair.
