Finally, a Hair Loss Treatment for Women
By Grattan Woodson, M.D. and April Secen, L.M.A.
The jury is in and the news is great. The hard work of many hair scientists has hit pay dirt and resulted in a breakthrough in our understanding of women’s hair loss. The causes of the two most common reasons for women’s hair loss have been revealed. With that insight came effective treatment, which is now available in Atlanta. Effective therapy that restores growth of your natural hair is available for these common causes of hair loss affecting Atlanta women. These two causes are androgenic alopecia (AGA) and chronic telogen effluvium (CTE).
The new treatments available are Minca Scalp Spray and platelet rich plasma (PRP) combined with scalp microneedling. Research has shown the ingredients we include in Minca are efficacious in both AGA and CTE situations, while platelet rich plasma administered with microneedling and Minca is an excellent solution for women with AGA. These new approaches are designed to cause the regrowth of hair organically and to protect the existing and newly regrown hair follicle from future loss and damage.
The new treatments available are Minca Scalp Spray and platelet rich plasma (PRP) combined with scalp microneedling.
The Minca Scalp Spray developed in our laboratory, expressly for use in women, enhances the follicle’s immediate environmental health by increasing the delivery of resources from the blood stream to support its growth and development. The spray ingredients protect the follicle from predatory hormones and immune cells and reduce the stress placed upon the hair follicle. Use of Minca Scalp Spray in our patients results in growth of substantial new hair after three months of therapy.
Platelet rich plasma combined with microneedling is a powerful new tool used to awaken dormant hair follicles put to bed by testosterone in women with androgenic alopecia. This is the most common cause of hair loss in women. It is inherited and progressive. PRP with microneedling is very effective for AGA. We obtain PRP from your own blood, concentrate it in our lab, and work it into the affected areas of your scalp after treatment by microneedling. Again, it takes about three months to see results. Minca Scalp Spray is used with PRP to protect the newly grown and existing hair from testosterone attack. Women with early AGA can be treated with Minca Scalp Spray alone but once they have lost scalp cover, PRP with microneedling is recommended for best results.
Women with CTE are successfully treated with Minca Scalp Spray alone. The components in Minca address the disordered hair cycling that is at the heart of this cause of chronic hair loss in women.
