Frequently Asked Questions About Hair Loss Treatments For Women
Here are some of the most common questions we receive on female hair loss.
What causes sudden hair loss in women?
Sudden hair loss in women is typically caused by telogen effluvium. Telogen effluvium (also referred to as stress-related hair loss) can be triggered by things like emotional stress, illness, having a baby (post-partum state) and menopause, certain medications, as well as changes in diet and weight (Asghar et al., 2020). These triggers can affect the hair growth cycle.
In some cases, telogen effluvium can unmask a genetic tendency to female pattern hair loss. While telogen effluvium is usually a temporary issue, female pattern hair loss will continue to worsen over time if left untreated.
How do I stop female hair loss?
Unfortunately, female hair loss cannot be completely cured. However, the good news is that effective treatments do exist that can help stop the progression of hair loss and help regrow hair. Medications like finasteride, minoxidil and spironolactone can help manage hair loss in women. Your doctor may recommend taking more than one treatment at a time (combination therapy) to maximize benefits.
What is the best hair loss treatment for women?
When it comes to choosing the best hair loss treatment for women, it's important to keep in mind that female hair loss is complex and has many different causes. Therefore, the most effective treatment plans try to target these different causes.
How long will it take to see results with my hair loss treatment?
When it comes to treating hair loss, patience is key. Depending on the medication, it could take 6-12 months or slightly longer for women to notice visible improvement in hair loss.
What are the side effects of hair loss treatments for women?
The side effects of hair loss treatments for women depend on the medication and medication format (e.g. oral vs topical). It's important to work with a doctor to determine the safest option for you.
Finasteride and dutasteride (5-alpha reductase inhibitors) may cause sexual dysfunction (e.g. decreased libido), breast swelling and/or tenderness, menstrual irregularities and increased body hair.
Oral minoxidil may cause palpitations, faster or irregular heartbeat, blood pressure changes, swelling of the lower limbs, increased body hair, dizziness or headaches. Both oral and topical minoxidil may also cause skin irritation or rashes.
Spironolactone has been associated with side effects such as breast tenderness, dizziness, fainting and menstrual irregularities.
This is not an exhaustive list of possible adverse reactions to hair loss treatments. You can learn more about these treatment-specific risks by visiting the XYON Medical Library and speaking to your doctor.
