Anti-androgens, such as spironolactone, may be prescribed along with minoxidil. This is particularly true if you have certain medical conditions that cause excess androgens in your body (PCOS, polycystic ovary syndrome for example).
A combination of minoxidil and spironolactone is quite promising. According to a pilot study in 2018, a combination of 25 mg spironolactone and low dose 0.25 mg minoxidil may effectively improve hair density and reduce shedding in women with pattern hair loss .
Hair transplantation for androgenic alopecia has been used since 1950s. This procedure removes a strip of scalp with healthy hair follicles (typically on the back of the head). So you need a stable donor site of your scalp.
Once removed, the narrow strip of your scalp is divided into hundreds of very small grafts. Then your specialist fills these grafts in a thinning or bald area.
Hair transplantation probably is the most effective way to treat receding hairline, though it’s costly. The results will last longer than other treatments. Even it may provide permanent results if the strip of healthy scalp is taken from very stable donor site. It often works successfully in men.
But the same doesn’t go for most women with pattern hair loss. Because many times, it’s difficult to find stable donor site!
How about low laser therapy? So far it’s difficult to find conclusive evidence to support the effectiveness of this treatment in female pattern hair loss. Even though there is already one device approved by the FDA for marketing, it seems further studies are required !
