There are several different types of hair loss that can occur as we age, and the treatments that work best depend on which type of hair loss you are experiencing.
Androgenetic alopecia, also called AGA, is the most frequent form of hair loss that both women and men suffer from. It is what causes male-pattern baldness in men, which starts at the temples and then a receding hairline and thinning on top of the head, and in women, it can cause an overall thinning of hair. AGA worsens over time, so it is important to start an Alopecia treatment in Bend as early as possible if you are noticing signs of the condition.
- The topical treatment minoxidil is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this kind of hair loss in both men and women, our compounded formula contains 7%.
- Women can also benefit from other topical compounded preparations, which are used to block the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a chemical in your body that has been shown to lead to hair loss.
- Men can also benefit from other compounded topical treatment preparations, which also prevents the conversion of testosterone to DHT.
- Recent studies have shown promise in the use of topical XoGlo with microneedling in reducing hair loss.
