Dr. Bauman Featured on WPBF

When it comes to hair loss, we hardly ever think of women - but did you know women are almost just as at risk as men?

  • More than half of all women over 40 experience hair loss
  • Women can inherit a ‘hair loss gene,’ just like men
  • Hair loss occurs differently in women than in men - i.e., “thinning”
  • It can be caused by hormonal changes, due to menopause and pregnancy along with age, medications, dieting, bad health, etc.
  • There are special treatments for women: Rogaine For Women, vitamin supplements, micro-surgical hair transplants and even Latisse (the Brooke Shields eyelash drug)
  • A new genetic test can predict a woman’s risk of hair loss
