About Hair Loss in Women
Straight, curly, frizzy, weaved, colored, or permed, hair is a constant source of joy and also pain. Each hair style is a personal hair journey - one of love, heartbreak, insecurity, prejudice, vulnerability - all too often covering scalp damage and hair loss.
While humans lose an average of 100 hairs per day, premature hair loss is fast becoming an epidemic for women whose hair has been traumatized over the years with chemicals, weaves, extensions, and damaging hairstyles.
In addition, health concerns such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, lifestyle habits, aesthetic choices, and cultural customs often contribute to the onset and severity of the hair loss disease.
For many women, hair loss is a serious life-altering condition that causes anxiety, stress, and affects their self esteem,
The most common signs of hair loss in women include overall thinning of the hair, bald spots on the scalp, handfuls of hair when combing or rapid full hair loss. At Tridod Hair Restoration, we are here to help with all your female hair restoration needs. Contact us today for a free consultation.

The New Science of Re-growing Hair
Many women lose their hair because of an inherited tendency toward alopecia, however, unlike men, women usually see diffused hair loss that thins over the whole top and frontal sections of the head. Although ladies can more easily hide hair loss for a longer period with creative hairstyles, it becomes increasingly obvious over time and without intervention may continue throughout one’s lifetime.
Early intervention can slow or even stop hair loss. Ladies usually notice thinning hair at the onset. This consciousness is an advantage because early intervention can slow or even stop the hair loss before it advances to a more severe stage.
TRIDOC Hair Restoration utilizes a proven combination of three medical-grade techniques to slow hair loss, stimulate dormant hair follicles to grow again, or move growing hair to the place on your scalp where you need it the most. The three procedures can be performed at our TRIDOC Hair Restoration Location. We will examine and analyze your hair loss pattern; then, design a personalized regimen to get the best results for you.
Three new therapies have proven to regrow hair
Laser Light Therapy wakes up dormant hair follicles and stimulates growth for a fuller, thicker head of hair. Laser Light Therapy works exceptionally well in the early stages of hair loss and can slow or even stop hair loss. Learn more about Laser Light Therapy.
Injection Therapy invigorates hair follicles by fueling the root with growth factors that are harvested from your own blood. The whole procedure takes about 30 minutes and there’s no down time. Learn more about injection therapy.
FUE (Follicle Unit Extraction)…No scalpel, incisions or staples! Minimal downtime. Your hair continues to grow normally. The transplanted hair looks and feels like your own natural hair – because it is. Learn more about NeoGraft Follicle Unit Extraction.

Frequently Asked Questions
Most people shed about 50-100 strands every day. Don’t worry if you find a few in your hairbrush or on your clothes. But if it starts to fall out in clumps or if you notice it getting thinner over time, check with your doctor.
If you find your hair is breaking in the middle of the strand or a few inches away from the scalp, that is a sign of weakened keratin and breakage due to severe damage to the hair protein — not traditional hair loss. In this case, give your hair a rest and swear off heat, bleach, and dye until you see some grow-out on the broken pieces and an overall improvement in hair texture.
Some of the specific treatments our specialist may discuss with you may include the following:
-Prescription-strength topical medications that work to prolong the growth cycle of hair.
-Oral contraceptives with low levels of androgens that regulate hormone production.
-Anti-androgens such as aldactone/spironolactone, tagamet/cimetidine, cyproterone acetate, ketoconazole (nizoral), and finasteride, designed to reduce androgens (male hormones.)
-Estrogen and Progesterone taken to regulate hormones.
-NeoLTS Infra-Red Light Therapy sessions that slow hair loss, regulate the follicular hair growth cycle, and stimulate dormant hair follicles to start growing.
-Injection Therapy to help your body build new and stronger hair shafts and follicles to grow more hair.
-NeoGraft FUE Hair transplants for a permanent natural solution to target specific areas where you need more hair.
Most over-the-counter (OTC) medications just aren’t strong enough to get to the root of the problem. These products rarely work and actually may damage your remaining hair. Since it’s really the hair follicles below the scalp that cause most of the problems, these treatments can’t do much. There are some prescription-strength topical medications available at TRIDOC Hair Restoration that would be more beneficial.
Eyebrows can be enhanced. If your eyebrows are thin, misshapen or you want thicker, fuller eyebrows to frame your face TRIDOC Hair Restoration has the answer. There are several ways to make the eyebrows fuller and darker. Follicle transplants work well on scarred facial tissue.
