Medical Treatment for Women

Medical Treatment for WomenSome medications have been used to combat hair loss in women and these would include: Minoxidil lotion, Finasteride (which is Propecia or Proscar), Spironolactone, and Cyproterone. Most women who have androgenetic alopecia (common hair loss) do not have elevated levels of androgens i.e. male hormones. Their hair is just more sensitive to the effects of normal androgen levels. To date, for most women, only Minoxidil has proven benefits, but unfortunately the benefits are usually not dramatic. Finasteride, Spironolactone and Cyproterone (by itself or in Diane-35) are anti-androgens and may be helpful in women with elevated androgen levels but have not proven beneficial for the general female public. Symptoms that could indicate high androgen levels include: excessive acne, facial hair, a rash called Seborrheic Dermatitis, cysts on your ovaries, and irregular menstrual cycles. These other methods could be discussed with a dermatologist of your choice. Medications can be used to slow hair loss but they are only beneficial as long as you continue to use them. They will not improve your hair the way hair transplantation will but can be used in conjunction with hair transplantation.
