When you were younger, did you have thick, dense, and lush hair? Do you look back at old pictures and wonder what happened to that gorgeous mane? You don’t have to sit quietly and yearn for the old days when you had a full head of gorgeous hair, and you don’t have to undergo expensive and potentially ineffective hair replacement surgery, either. In fact, your problem may be that you’re suffering from hair loss due to an underactive thyroid gland or another hormone imbalance. In that case, we have the perfect solution for you right here at Juvia Med Spa with hormone therapy for hair loss.
Your Thyroid Gland and Your Hair
You may already know that your thyroid gland governs your body’s metabolism. By producing T3 and T4 hormones, your thyroid allows your body to process the calories it takes in properly to fuel your body and give you the energy you need to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. If your thyroid gland is underactive, you will likely experience a number of symptoms, including weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, and depression.
Most patients who suffer from hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid) report feeling more energetic, happier, and more vibrant almost immediately after starting hormone replacement therapy. And patients who have experienced thinning hair or hair loss almost always report that their hair grows back fuller, thicker, and more beautiful after they begin treatment.
Menopause and Hair Loss
Your hormone imbalance may not be a problem with your thyroid, however. Many women experience hair loss during perimenopause or after menopause because their bodies stop producing estrogen and progesterone at the same rate that they once did. If your body does not have enough of these female sex hormones, you may experience female pattern baldness. This is not an uncommon situation, but it is fortunately a very easy one to treat for most women.
Essentially, if you are not genetically predisposed toward female pattern baldness, but you are experiencing hair loss due to lack of thyroid hormones, estrogen, or progesterone, we can help you by prescribing bioidentical hormone therapy.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are exactly the same as the hormones that your body produces naturally. When you take bioidentical hormones, your body will be able to use them more easily and efficiently, and so you’ll notice better results faster, whether you’re taking supplemental thyroid hormones, estrogen, and/or progesterone.
