Women's Hair Loss Treatment, Philadelphia, PA

Are you noticing thinning hair on the top of your head or a widening part? Hiding it with a hat or rearranging your hair to make it less obvious? You are certainly not alone, and hair loss is more common in women than you may think. According to the Cleveland Clinic, this condition impacts 30 million women in the United States, impacting 40% of women by age 40.

We’re here to tell you it is possible to regain fuller, thicker, and healthy hair. At Lumen, we offer a breakthrough, innovative combination treatment that draws on the power of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, prescription medication, and scalp micropigmentation (SMP). This trifecta addresses hair loss in women in a holistic and integrated way, providing both immediate and long-term results.

Causes of Hair Loss in Women

It’s important to understand the causes of hair loss in women. Female pattern alopecia, also known as androgenic alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss in women. Medical conditions, such as thyroid disease and vitamin deficiencies, can also cause hair loss. Hair loss typically occurs during or after menopause when a woman is in her 50s, but it can also happen much earlier. Women with hormonal changes related to pregnancy or perimenopause may also struggle with thinning hair. While there may be many changes due to aging and hormones, hair loss doesn’t have to be one of them.

What Is Female Pattern Hair Loss?

Female pattern baldness is caused by an inherited sensitivity to the effects of androgens (male hormones) on scalp hair follicles. While male pattern baldness typically follows a predictable pattern, female pattern alopecia presents in various ways. Often, thinning hair in women happens all over the scalp, but with more noticeable thinning in certain areas. It tends to occur toward the top of the scalp, with parts growing wider. 

Another characteristic of androgenetic alopecia is miniaturization. This condition occurs when thinning hair does not uniformly grow smaller in diameter. Women with hair loss tend to have miniaturizing hairs with various diameters in the affected areas of the scalp.

A Unique Approach to Hair Loss in Women

Hair loss in women is often challenging to treat because many women are not good candidates for hair transplants and are contraindicated for certain medications. However, our innovative approach at Lumen combines the best in hair loss treatments for women to bring back healthier, fuller hair. We start the process with SMP to provide an immediate aesthetic boost. Then we follow with a combined treatment that also includes long-term therapies to address the root cause of hair loss.

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma, a revolutionary, clinically backed treatment, is a concentration of platelets in your own blood that contains regenerative growth factors. When used for hair loss, PRP releases these growth factors into the scalp to stimulate natural hair growth and increase tissue repair to weak or damaged hair follicles. Numerous studies have shown that PRP treatment reduces hair loss, thickens hair, and increases hair density.

The way your PRP is processed also makes a difference. At Lumen, we are one of the only offices in Philadelphia to offer the Magellan TruPRPTM system. This innovative and advanced technology allows us to distill the purest and most concentrated PRP to maximize your results.


PRP Treatment for Hair Loss in Women

Scalp Micropigmentation for Immediate Results

For those seeking an immediate solution to thinning hair, scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is an innovative, non-surgical technique that offers remarkable results. Using micro-needles to deposit pigment into the scalp, SMP creates the illusion of fuller, denser hair. It’s an excellent short-term solution that instantly enhances the perception of hair density, helping restore your confidence while other treatments take effect.

Minoxidil Prescription Medication

Minoxidil is another potent component of our strategy to combat hair loss in women. Recent studies suggest that oral Minoxidil can also effectively treat various hair disorders, including patterned hair loss. This oral medication improves circulation to stimulate hair follicles, promote hair growth, and slow the thinning of hair.

Together, these three treatments form a comprehensive approach to managing hair loss. SMP provides immediate results, boosting your confidence and dramatically improving the appearance of your hair. Simultaneously, PRP therapy and Minoxidil work together to promote long-term hair growth and health.

Other Hair Loss Solutions

While our innovative combination of SMP, PRP therapy, and oral Minoxidil works wonders for many patients, we acknowledge that hair restoration is not a one-size-fits-all process.

Every individual’s hair loss is unique, and we thoroughly assess each patient’s specific needs and circumstances before recommending a treatment plan. In addition to our combination treatment, we offer Nutrafol supplements and nanofat therapy to aid in hair restoration. We also have the expertise to perform hair transplant procedures when they are the best option for the patient. Other hair loss solutions for women may include:

Nutrafol Supplements

Nutrafol is made up of powerful ingredients that are both medical-grade and natural. We frequently recommend this oral supplement for all hair restoration patients since it helps target the key culprits of hair thinning, such as hormones, stress, and poor nutrition. Nutrafol is clinically tested and shown to improve hair wellness (growth, thickness, shine, texture, and strength).

Nanofat for Hair Rejuvenation

Nanofat for hair regrowth (also called Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection or ALMI) is a revolutionary new procedure that uses your body’s regenerative growth factors in fat tissue to revive hair follicles. During the nanofat procedure, a small amount of fat is harvested from the love handles and then processed to separate fluids and produce a highly potent concentration of adipose-derived stem cells. Once the treatment area is numbed, the nanofat is precisely injected into the scalp. Nanofat not only strengthens weakened hair follicles but is also proven to assist with hair regrowth. This procedure produces long-lasting results with maintenance treatments every 2-3 years. Interval PRP treatments help maximize natural growth and stimulate new hair production.

NeoGraft® System: A High-Tech Hair Transplant Solution for Women

Hair Plugs for Women: A Thing of the Past

Fortunately, hair transplants for women have come a long way since hair plugs! Hair plugs (a single hair graft consisting of 8-20 hairs) were incredibly noticeable and unnatural-looking. Today, innovative hair loss treatments such as the NeoGraft System produce undetectable results that mimic your natural hairline.
