Hair Transplant to Females - Laser Way

Hair Transplant to Females

Hair transplantation is an effective treatment method that creates a positive impact on people suffering from hair loss; influencing every aspect of their life. Although the majority of hair transplant patients are still male, a high percentage of women have also started seeking hair transplants to cope with hair loss.

Causes of hair loss in women

Female-type hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most common cause of hair loss in women.

Other possible causes for hair loss in women include:

  • There is a genetic predisposition to hair loss
  •  Autoimmune diseases
  • Change in hormone levels
  • Treatment
  • Menopause
  • regnancy
  •  Excessive stress
  •  Accelerated diet / rapid weight loss
  • Iron deficiency

We can begin our analysis by looking at the most common medical condition of hair loss; Androgenetic alopecia.

Androgenetic alopecia.

The follicular changes causing androgenetic alopecia are similar between male and female hair loss.

Hair loss in men is generally characterized by a receding hairline (frontal area), affecting the temples (temporal area) and the crown region (vertical area). Women, on the other hand, generally lose their hair more extensively on the crown of the head. It is very rare for women to experience complete hair loss.

Hair loss in women is mainly characterized by general thinning that occurs all over the scalp or localized; affecting only specific areas of the head.

Androgenetic alopecia in women can manifest itself in 3 different patterns of hair loss:

• Diffuse (progressive)
• Localized (stable)
• Schematic (male model)

  1. Diffuse (progressive):  this condition of hair loss is characterized by a diffuse thinning in the area of the hair that can extend throughout the scalp, preserving the front hairline.
  2. Localized (permanent): This type of hair loss is characterized by a bitemporal recession of the middle part in the center of the scalp without widespread thinning.
  3. Schematic (Male Pattern): Schematic hair loss is characterized by bitemporal recession of the temples, causing the frontal hairline to move back (recede)(Hamilton).

Ways to prevent hair loss in women

Preventing hair loss may be possible through medical treatments and self-care, as well as maintaining a healthy diet.
