What causes Hair Loss in women?
Women may experience hair loss as a result of many different causes, including androgenic alopecia, or female pattern baldness, which is a hereditary condition. There are also non-hereditary conditions that may affect some women, such as compulsive hair plucking, or scarring on the scalp resulting from injury, illness or surgery. Emotional reactions and medical conditions can also trigger temporary hair loss, as can certain types of medications, such as oral contraceptives with high doses of progestin, chemotherapy, and thyroid medications, among others. Non-hereditary hair loss is typically temporary and reversible once the underlying condition causing hair loss has been adequately treated.
Can Hair Loss in Women be treated?
Yes! Female pattern hair loss, as well as hair loss caused by non-hereditary conditions, can now be successfully treated with NeoGraft™ follicular unit extraction (FUE) treatment, the most advanced procedure for hair transplant available today. Typically, the procedure is performed by removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from a discreet area of the scalp that can easily be camouflaged. The strip is then split into hundreds of smaller grafts of “follicular units.” Some of these tiny grafts may contain up to four or five hairs, but most contain only one or two hairs. These individual, minute, follicular units are then inserted into tiny incisions in the target areas where hair growth has ceased. This precise and laborious technique allows Dr. Austin to precisely craft each individual hair transplant procedure, reproducing natural hair growth patterns in each patient.
What can I expect from Hair Loss treatments?
While hair transplant procedures provide long-lasting results, they cannot completely stop and prevent future hair loss. Individuals with hereditary male or female pattern baldness may continue to lose hair but can maintain a youthful look with regular follow-up treatments. Dr. Austin will describe your options in full detail during your initial consultation.
