WE RECOGNIZE WOMENS HAIR LOSS IS DIFFERENT
There are so many things out there now to treat hair loss. From caps you wear on your head with lights to special creams and potions. None of these work! We recognize womens hair loss patients are suffering, and require a different approach than men when considering hair restoration.
Compared to men, women suffering from hair loss manifests in different patterns, generally is more diffuse, and can occur at any age. Women’s hair loss and hair thinning nine times out of ten, is due to underlying conditions. (Men’s hair loss typically has a strong genetic pattern.)
WOMENS HAIR LOSS CAN BE DEVASTATING, NOW THERE IS SMARTGRAFT
Hair loss in women is a devastating disorder that can be treated. Women typically notice hair loss during the menopausal period. It usually show up as reduced hair thickness, and is usually in the middle of the scalp and thins out laterally. In addition to the hair getting thinner, it is also often miniaturized because of a longer resting telogen phase. Although possible, rarely hair loss in women happens along the frontal hairline.
The great news for women is female patterned hair loss can be treated successfully with Smartgraft.
FEMALE HAIR LOSS CAN BE TREATED WITH SMARTGRAFT
In male pattern baldness the sides and back are still covered with hair. Men who have this balding pattern usually have successful hair transplant surgery. The donor hair from the back of the scalp survives the procedure and continues to grow on the area it is transplanted on the scalp.
In men, we use hair transplant sites like the hair follicles on the sides and back of the head. When it comes to women’s hair loss, they typically don’t have these stable sites where balding-resistant hair follicles can be found. Unlike men, women can go bald not just on the top of their head but also on the sides, back and front. Therefore, women with a diffuse, or wide-spread, patterns of hair loss may not be a great candidate for any type of hair transplant.
All areas of a woman’s head are affected by DHT. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), is a derivative of the male hormone testosterone, and is most definitely the enemy of hair follicles on your head.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR SMARTGRAFT WOMENS HAIR LOSS TREATMENT?
- Some women with thinning scalp hair
- A person who has lost some but not all hair as a result of burns or other scalp injuries.
- Women who want to restructure their hairline.
- Women who have suffered hair loss due to mechanical or traction alopecia (non-hormonal).
- Women who have a distinct pattern of baldness, similar to that of male pattern baldness-hairline recession, vertex thinning (on the crown or top of the scalp), and a donor area that is not affected by Androgenetic Alopecia.
- Women who have had previous cosmetic or plastic surgery and are concerned about hair loss around the incision sites.
- Women diagnosed with traction alopecia or alopecia marginalis.
- Women who experienced hair loss after face lifts or other cosmetic procedures.
WHO IS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR SMARTGRAFT?
- Women with a diffuse, or wide-spread, pattern of hair loss.
- Those who do not have sufficient “donor” sites (hair-bearing portions of the head from which hair-bearing skin is taken)
- Women who form keloid scars or thick fibrous skin tissue that can result from trauma, burns, or radiation injury.
WOMENS HAIR LOSS HAPPENS THREE WAYS
Sometimes it’s localized hair loss
Local hair loss occurs from scarring and non-scarring diagnoses. Scarring hair loss is seen in Lupus, Alopecia Areata (a genetic condition), Lichen Planus, or local radiation.
Baldness occurring from injuries, local medical problems that have been cured etc. are probably fixable with Smartgraft. A consultation is required.
Other times it’s patterned hair loss
Some women have a hair loss pattern similar to men. Women with male pattern loss typically have thinning in the frontal hairline and the top of the scalp, while the sides of the scalp remain relatively spared. Women with this hair loss pattern typically are excellent candidates for Smartgraft.
And last we have the thinning or diffuse hair loss
Diffuse thinning of the scalp is the most common form of female hair loss. Diffuse thinning involves a reduction in the diameter and thickness of the hair shaft. The medical term for this type of thinning is “Diffuse Un-patterned Alopecia”.
These women are thinning all over. Unfortunately there is not a clear donor area. Women experiencing this hair loss are generally not a good candidate for Smartgraft. PRP Hair Restoration would help you though!
