Hair loss in women is far more common than most people think. In fact, the American Hair Loss Council has found that as many as one out of every four women can expect to experience some degree of hair loss over the course of their lives. Unfortunately, until fairly recently the subject of women’s hair loss was seldom seriously discussed. This is why board-certified dermatologists Dr. Edmond Griffin and Dr. Ashley Curtis formed The Griffin Center for Women’s Hair Loss, the first center in Georgia devoted exclusively to addressing the unique issues associated with women’s hair restoration. Most people are familiar with the ways that hair loss can affect men, but the various forms of women’s hair loss often require distinctly different diagnostic methods and treatments. This specialized center gives us an opportunity to bring our extensive experience to bear on this widespread problem.
Dr. Griffin and Dr. Curtis also strongly believe that providing the most up-to-date information is one of the best ways to serve our patients, and so they both regularly film educational hair restoration videos that answer a variety of hair care questions. In this installment, watch as Dr. Curtis discusses the specific ways that women’s hair loss differs from traditional men’s hair loss and how those differences are addressed at The Griffin Center.
Diagnosing and treating any case of hair loss can be complicated, but in female patients this can be particularly true. At The Griffin Center for Women’s Hair Loss we can take the time to thoroughly evaluate every one of our hair loss patients so that we can be sure that all of the underlying causes of hair loss are addressed. Although we consistently achieve excellent result for both male and female patients using the most advanced techniques in hair transplantation surgery, we also often find it beneficial to approach the issues of women’s hair loss holistically, incorporating less invasive, more preventative measures like Red Light Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma, prescription topical medications and shampoos, and even nutritional supplements as necessary. Every woman is unique and so requires her own individualized hair restoration plan.
