About 1/3 of women experience hair loss(alopecia) at some point in their lives. As women enter into peri-menopause and go through menopause, around 2/3 suffer some hair thinning and or hair loss.
Hair loss can be devastating and embarrassing. It can have a huge impact on a woman’s emotional well-being and quality of life.
Generally, we all shed hair daily but when the cycle becomes interrupted for various reasons, we notice hair thinning and or loss.
Our hair goes through 3 main cycles:
- The anagen phase or the growing phase typically lasts from 2 to 8 years. This phase generally refers to almost 90% of the hair on your head.
- The catagen phase (transition phase) is the time that your hair follicles shrink and can take about 2-3 weeks.
- The telogen phase (resting phase) can take about 2-4 months. When this phase ends, the hair falls out.
Most women eventually develop some degree of female pattern hair loss. It can start at any time and in our stressful world, and more younger women are noticing hair thinning and hair loss.
It’s often asked, what is the reason for this hair loss? There are many potential causes of hair loss in women including:
- Nutrient Deficiencies
- Particularly Iron
- Hormone Imbalances
- Genetic Influences
- Undiagnosed Medical Conditions

To determine a client’s treatment, Dr. Roy and his staff will review your entire medical history. You may want to request copies of your medical files to share with him.
Your medical files and treatments are held in the strictest of confidence; all correspondence is handled through our secure patient portal.
We believe in education in bringing about improved wellness and teaching others about the importance of diet, exercise, hormones and stress relief.
We do not accept any form of medical insurance or Medicare. We do encourage you to use your insurance for lab work, however some tests may not be covered. You may also use pre-tax dollars from a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Care Credit to pay for your consultations and supplements used for specific health problems.
To provide you with the most affordable care possible AustinMD has made special arrangements with all of our lab vendors to provide our patients with direct lab pricing. This ensures that you’ll get the lowest price possible and all lab testing that you receive. Some tests with some insurance companies will cover a large portion of the test. On average, you should budget $500-$1500.
A Health Savings Account (HSA) enables you to pay for medical expenses on a tax-free or pre-taxed basis. For more information and to see if you qualify, you will need to speak with your medical insurance provider.
