With so many causes of hair loss out there today, women are experiencing it more often than ever before. By age 40, forty percent of women suffer from visible hair loss. It’s no longer just a man problem, and in the age of the empowered woman, ladies you do not have to remain victims of hair loss.
Recently a client was told by her doctor to “deal with your hair loss, you’re just getting old.” The same clients’ dermatologist also claimed she couldn’t be helped. I hear these statements often, and I have the same reply every-time, something can ALWAYS be done. I encourage patients to see a doctor to determine possible medical causes of hair loss and believe your next step is a hair replacement studio. At Genesis II we provide a free, no obligation hair loss and scalp evaluation with a hair loss specialist. You do not have to figure this out on your own.
Hair loss occurs when the natural growth cycle becomes disrupted, which can stem from many different factors. Below are some of the most common causes of female hair loss:
Androgenetic Alopecia – most commonly referred to as Female Pattern Hair Loss
Heredity, Emotional Stress – a divorce, after the death of a loved one, Physical Stress – any kind of physical trauma, surgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, even the flu can cause temporary hair loss. Pregnancy – post-partum hair loss, Lack of Protein, Female Hormones – switching or going off birth-control pills, Anemia – almost one in 10 women aged 20 through 49 suffers from anemia due to an iron deficiency, which is an easily fixable cause of hair loss, Hypothyroidism, Dramatic Weight Loss/Bariatric Surgery, Chemotherapy, and much more.
The pattern and severity of female hair loss is what helps us determine the appropriate course of treatment. We offer every proven solution for hair loss. Surgical, Non-Surgical, Hair Extensions, Medical Wigs, Hair Loss Control Products (All Natural or Minoxidil) Low Level Light Therapy and PRP Treatments.
Hair Transplantation is a Surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the ‘donor site’, to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site. This is a minimally invasive procedure. Most people will see 60% of new hair growth after 6 to 9 months.
Non-Surgical Hair involves blending your existing hair with real hair that is attached to a custom-made system. This system, made of ultra-fine, soft mesh and shaped for you. It is cleverly and discreetly secured to your head. Then your hair is cut and styled to create any look you desire. The possibilities are endless.
Hair Extensions are hand crafted from 100% human hair, so your hair will make you feel more self-confident, sexy and secure than ever before. Achieve increased hair volume and have long, thick, healthy, beautiful looking hair.
Medical wigs are recommended for women being treated for cancer and undergoing chemotherapy who are experiencing temporary hair loss. We offer the highest quality medical wigs available which are specifically designed for a woman with little or no hair. Our customized medical wigs offer greater comfort and are lighter and cooler than wigs found off-the-shelf in retail fashion outlets.
Hair Loss Control Products by Genesis II is an advanced anti thinning, multi-therapeutic hair loss program designed specifically to stop hair loss and promote healthier, thicker hair. Utilizing a combination of tested, proven growth activators and hair nutritionals, they include special hair supplements and sodium laurel ether sulfate free shampoo and other topical treatments that have proven especially effective when used in combination with a monitored course of laser hair therapy.
Low Level Light Therapy, also known as a cold light-based laser, is administered with a comb or a cap that stimulates re-growth. It’s a combination of red laser and LED light diodes that stimulate and energize cellular activity. Laser can even be done in the privacy of your home, is FDA approved and has no side effects.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or PRP Therapy is an excellent non-surgical option for hair restoration. PRP Therapy has been proven to repair damaged hair follicles and make them healthy enough to produce thick strands of hair, while reversing hair loss. PRP Therapy is a very simple non-surgical procedure that involves minimal discomfort, no sedation, zero recovery time and is 100% safe when done properly. We never use growth factors. We only use your own platelet rich plasma, nothing else.
