Treatment Solutions for Balding

When it comes to hair loss treatments for women, there are many options. Women must first obtain a medical physical from a dermatologist, a general practitioner or a doctor with knowledge in dermatology of the head. Most physicians aren't thrilled with the idea of using a systemic treatment (a medication/pill that will affect your entire body system). Thus, topical scalp treatments are most commonly prescribed.

Minoxidil is one of the most common hair restoration treatments. It was once used to treat high blood pressure. However, patients using it noticed increased hair growth. It was tested and discovered when applied topically to the scalp it helped restore hair growth. Most women begin treating their hair loss with Minoxidil. While it works for many, it doesn't work for everyone.
