Everyone loses strands of hair naturally. It is a common misconception that only men are afflicted – hair loss happens to women as well at close to the same rate. Because all of us lose 50 to 100 hair strands each day, women don’t always recognize hair loss until the condition has advanced.
Female hair loss almost always stems from one of the following factors:
In particular, thinning hair is a common sign of low estrogen in women for many reasons.
Regardless of the cause, it is important to know that there are solutions available. At Foyé MD and Spa, we use a variety of treatments to stimulate hair growth, including PRP treatment and hormone replacement therapy. We offer various treatment sessions as packages to obtain optimal results.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical therapy used to stimulate hair growth in both male and female patients. The growth factors that can be found in PRP is proven to be safe, natural, and a very effective solution for hair restoration. When injected into targeted areas of the scalp, the treatment helps encourage tissue regeneration and collagen growth, which promotes new hair growth.
PRP hair growth treatments at Foyé MD and Spa are simple treatments that last about 30 minutes. We will draw a small amount of blood to isolate the plasma, and infuse the PRP in the areas that are in need of hair restoration. There is typically no downtime after the procedure, so you can resume normal activities immediately. You can resume washing and styling your hair normally within 24 hours of treatment, but our PRP provider will provide additional instructions to ensure you maintain optimal results.
For the best results, we may recommend returning in 4-week intervals for 4 PRP hair growth treatments. We may also recommend a maintenance treatment every 4-6 months.
Estrogen plays a big role in hair growth and hair loss. For instance, many pregnant women experience faster hair growth and thicker locks when estrogen levels are soaring. When estrogen levels drop, hair may become thinner or fall out. Hormone replacement therapy can flip the switch to get the follicles growing hair again.
Hormonal imbalance is commonly overlooked when treating female hair loss. Hormone levels shift with age. These changes are often natural, but sometimes they are not. Unnatural hormone disruptions can cause a plethora of health issues. Hormone replacement therapy can be a life-changing experience for women facing hair loss.
Menopausal women with low or declining estrogen levels can benefit from hormone replacement therapy in Houston. However, it is most often prescribed in cream or pill form to treat androgenic alopecia in women, also known as pattern baldness.
At Foyé MD and Spa, our clinicians can discuss hormonal replacement therapy options to aid in your hair restoration process.
