“I have 20% hair loss due to hereditary. I am 65 years old and in good health. I have heard about laser treatment, Can you tell me the success rate or, would you recommend a different treatment?” ~Brenda M.
Thank you for your question, Brenda! Hereditary hair loss is one of the major causes of hair loss in healthy women. Much like you, many women are looking for a solution for their hair thinning or hair loss. The first thing to keep in mind is that there is no “magic pill.” No matter what the product, service or specialist tells you the only way to grow hair back is if there is a healthy hair follicle beneath the scalp. Once the follicle is gone, it is unfortunately not coming back.
I often ask my guest this question, ” If you looked in the mirror three months from now what will your hair loss look like then?” If you are noticing more than the normal shedding of 80-100 hairs per day then in three months there is a great likelihood that your hair loss will progress even further. The goal now is to make sure your scalp is in a healthy condition in order for hair to grow stronger, faster, thicker and be less inclined to fall. So when you look at yourself in the mirror three months from now your hair loss has not worsened, and your hair is thicker helping to give the appearance of even less hair loss.
