Experiencing hair loss and thinning all over for the past 5-6 yrs. 38 yr old Indian female. Any suggestions?

I am currently taking Spironolactone, Iron, Vitamin D, Tirosint, Avodart and Viviscal Professional and Hairmax with minimal visual results. Hair generally sheds from the roots and just doesn't seem to stop. How long before I can see any improvements? Also, any recommendation for the best hair specialist/dermatologist in NYC/DE/PA area. Please help!

You should not be taking Avodart if you are a woman. You need to go back to your doctor and review the treatment options.

Thank you for your question

Loss of hair is a natural process when it is between the limits that the body can restore them. When the capacity of the body to restore the hair loss is beaten by the excessive hair loss then we can name this situation something that should be treated. Women started to experience balding even more in the last 2 decades. It is getting more and more common also in women population. However it is also good to know that this problem is also treatable when it is present in women.

To obtain alive hair follicles implanted in higher rates, the latest technique being used is not the only manner, it is also affected by compliance of implantation area that we found a better way to improve as a result of our researches, The Organic Hair Transplantation. By this new and unique Organic Hair Transplantation Technique, before the extraction and implantation processes; we regenerate the implantation area with injection of stem cell enriched fat tissue. Regeneration of cells in target area before FUE transplantation with the support of stromal stem cells results in higher rate of alive thicker hair follicles.
