Balding Solution for Women is for the treatment of patterned hair thinning, or inherited balding (androgenetic alopecia). This condition happens gradually, but will often experience an apparent acceleration in the perimenopausal time of life.
Both men AND women experience programmed hair thinning over time in a manner specific to their own genetic wiring. Thinning hair happens when the mature (thick) hair is turned into a miniature ("peach fuzz") type hair on the temples and crown of the scalp. This process is influenced by the male hormones in all humans, male or female. While both men and women undergo balding of varying degrees in these areas, women do not experience the same severity of balding as men.
How It Works: SkinHappy's Balding Solution for Women packs a triple punch for growing hair! Specially formulated by Dr. Kenner, our extremely popular SkinHappy Balding Solution for Women is specifically designed to reverse this natural balding process. There are 3 key ingredients in this solution, which work synergistically together: Minoxidil to increase the size of hair follicles and promote the growth of thicker, stronger hair; Progesterone to counter the male hormone effects and keeping the hair in the follicle longer; and topical Tretinoin, to encourage the follicles to help maintain and regrow hair on the scalp.
One dropper full of this product is to be massaged on the temples and crown (in areas of balding) of the scalp at night.
Generally loved by our SkinHappy patients, results take approximately 3-6 months to become noticeable, and (as with all of biology), show variable degrees of effectiveness person to person.
As with all products containing tretinoin, you may need to use the solution just a few days a week, in the beginning, to develop tolerance, and prevent a retinoid reaction. Dr. Kenner usually advises her patients to gradually increase use as tolerance builds. The goal is to use the product nightly.
For added benefit, the Balding Solution for Women may be used with SkinHappy’s Rapid Growth Serum (these can be mixed together and applied at once), as well as the SkinHappy Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner for those with more need.
Warning: these products are only to be used on the crown/temples of the scalp, and not on the face. If you see a sudden increase in unwanted hair on the face, discontinue use.
