Beverly Hills, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/26/2013 -- In the past, hair loss was a problem that primarily affected men. However, My Hair Lady, an article that was recently published in New You Magazine has shown that 35 percent of the people who received hair loss treatments in 2010 were women—a figure 7 percent points higher than 2006’s 28 percent count for the same gender. The good news is that there are a number of treatments available to meet this growing demand.
Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director at Epione Beverly Hills, stated: “the number of women seeking hair loss treatment at our office may be higher than the International Society of Hair Restorations’ 35% average.” The doctor added that genetics is one of the main causes of hair loss in women. He further explained that other factors such as hormonal changes, chemical treatments, a poor diet and stress can also cause hair loss.
The doctor has attested that he is seeing much younger women come in for hair loss treatment. “In the past,” the Los Angeles-based doctor added, “the options that women had for treating hair loss were limited to only Rogaine or a surgical hair transplant. Today, there are various topical products and safe medications available to treat this condition.” Epione, for instance, has recently begun offering a product called Revivogen. This newest addition to Epione’s product offerings is reported by the manufacturer to stop the root cause of hair loss.
As researchers are continuously conducting studies that will help prevent hair loss by dealing with what actually causes it, it is foreseen that a number of other treatments would be available for the public in the near future. For instance, Allergan, the company that created Botox, is currently developing a hair loss-addressing product that is similar to their well-known eyelash growth product Latisse.
