    Default Hair loss

    Hello, My name is Nancy. I have a question for the forum but first a quick summary of my situation. A number of years ago, in my 50's I noticed a slowly progressive thinning in the temporal areas. I started using Minoxidil and continued for about 8 years. In October of '14 I started LLLT six month program. Treatment twice weekly 45 minute sessions. Lost lots of hair during treatment but stayed with the program as I was told this was normal. Since treatments, now almost 1 1/2 years later, I continue to lose and have since lost about 70 percent of my hair. I am healthy and postmenapausal. I use hormone replacement and recently started Spironolactone. Recent blood work all normal, scalp biopsy indicates non
    scarring type. No one has an answer. Anyone here have any thoughts, and has any treatments worked to help restore follicle activity? Thank you.

    Hello Nancy and welcome to this great forum.

    First of all, can you please take a couple of photos of your hairline and then post it here
    Of course, you do not have to show your face at all.

    It would be good to notice specifically just how your hairline looks.

    Have a good day Nancy!!
    (im in my 50s too!)

    Hello Artista! Thank you for your message. My loss is predominently on sides with top front thinning. Overall thinness now with widening part. I'm still able to disguise loss with extra hair on top. Recently went to a specialized hair salon where they looked at my sides with a magnifyinhg scope. The result was not good, apparently few follicles left. Looks like I may need hair piece down the road. I suspect the rapid and excessive loss with minimal regrow the is due to over exposure toLLLT. But no one can confirm that. I hope I'm wrong, but no other explanation. Family history of thinning, but not to the extent I've experienced.
