Promoting Hair Growth During Menopause

Exosomes for Hair Loss Hair loss and menopause is a common concern for women. The psychological and aesthetic impact of age-related hair changes in women is substantial, affecting their perceived age and overall well-being. Female pattern hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most commonly diagnosed form of alopecia among women over the age of 60. While the exact causes are still being studied, it is now recognized as a complex condition influenced by various factors, including hormonal changes associated with aging, environmental factors, lifestyle, as well as menopause.

Hormonal Changes: Menopause and Hair Loss

Menopause brings about significant hormonal changes, including a rapid decline in ovarian estrogens and a relative increase in androgens. These hormonal shifts can negatively impact hair health. Women undergoing menopause may experience a decrease in the hair growth rate, the percentage of hairs in the active growth phase (anagen), hair diameter, and increasing hair shedding.

Limited Treatment Options for Hair Loss During Menopause

Despite the prevalence of hair thinning in menopausal women, there is a lack of controlled studies evaluating effective interventions. Currently, treatment options are limited, and most have been developed to target specific aspects of hair loss. For example, androgen-inhibiting therapies like finasteride and spironolactone have been used off-label for post-menopausal women but have shown inconsistent results in clinical studies.
