An Answer for the Most Common Cause of Hair Loss in Women

Hair Loss in WomenBy Grattan Woodson, MD, FACP

Atlanta women with androgenic alopecia (AGA), the most common cause of
chronic hair loss, now have access to an effective new therapy. This comes about
as a consequence of advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology of this disease. There is no cure for AGA, given its genetic cause, but when these advanced treatments are administered appropriately and the newly restored hair is conserved with Minca Scalp Spray, the resulting hair regrowth is almost as good as a cure.

A Common Conundrum

Androgenic alopecia is common and affects about 50% of Caucasian women. Hair loss due to AGA in women begins in the late 30s and accelerates during the 40s as women approach menopause. AGA advances significantly after menopause and can lead to loss of scalp cover. The rate of hair loss slows in the majority of patients once they are in their 70s and 80s. However, for 1 in 5 people with AGA, it can become more severe and result in hair loss from the entire head and leave large swaths of scalp uncovered. There are always some wisps of hair remaining, even in the most advanced cases.

A Simple Solution

Before there is loss of scalp cover, AGA is effectively treated with Minca Scalp Spray, which was designed in our laboratory exclusively for women. The Minca Scalp Spray contains pharmaceuticals, hormones, and antihormones that protect the hair follicle from the predatory effects of testosterone, increase its access to vital resources including protein, minerals, and fats, and augment the blood supply to the base of the follicle.

For more advanced cases of AGA, we add treatment with platelet-rich plasma in tandem with microneedling. Research and our patient experience show this approach to be a very effective form of management. We reserve it for women with scalp exposure to induce hair recovery within the affected and surrounding areas of the scalp. Treatment is repeated every month until sufficient organic hair regrowth has been achieved. Once hair cover has been reestablished it is conserved and maintained solely by twice daily use of Minca Scalp Spray.

Our goal is for patients to grow their own hair naturally and to be able to go anywhere and do anything with their hair. In most women, these therapies yield positive results that are visible within 3 months.

It is important to remember that a treatment is not a cure. A woman who has successfully regrown her hair using our therapies still has AGA, the underlying disease that caused her hair loss. If she stops use of the Minca Scalp Spray, she will lose the benefits she has worked so hard to gain.
