Hair Loss in Women

How can we treat Hair Loss in women?

Hair Transplants treat hair loss for women

Although it’s common to lose between 50-100 hairs per day, most women are understandably shocked and frustrated when their hair loss begins to accelerate, leading to noticeable thinning or balding.

While we tend to hear more about hair transplants for men because hereditary hair loss, known as androgenic alopecia, is more prevalent among males, baldness and hair loss affects many women in Miami. In fact, approximately 40% of our clients are women who’ve experienced some degree of hair thinning by the time they reach mid-life. One of the reasons that we so seldom hear about women undergoing hair implant procedures is that women are less likely to disclose that they’ve had hair restoration surgery. So crucial in beauty and fashion is a woman’s hair that few feel comfortable openly discussing their devastating loss. Luckily, modern hair transplant technology is now incredibly sophisticated that it delivers beautiful, seamless and natural looking results. Female hair transplant patients never need to divulge their secret if they don’t choose to.

In our society, shiny, healthy hair is often seen as synonymous with beauty and youth. However, while many women are comfortable discussing a variety of facial beauty enhancements, there is not as much acceptance for hair restoration procedures. As a result, many women suffer in silence, rather than pursuing treatment although studies indicate that hair loss amongst causes women in Miami to feel anxious or depressed, which often has a detrimental impact on their daily life and self-esteem. Thanks to advancements in technology and improved awareness, more women are now expressing an interest in the industry’s leading hair transplant technology which safely and effectively delivers the same natural-looking results for women as it does for men.

Hair Growth Cycle

There are three phases of the growth cycle for human hair. The anagen or growth phase is the longest phase as it can last for up to 8 years and is responsible for 90% of the hair that is visible on the scalp. During the catagen phase, which typically lasts for 2-3 weeks, the hair follicle shrinks.

Finally, during the telogen phase, the hair follicle rests for several months. Each day approximately 90% of our hair is growing while the remaining 10% is shrinking or dormant. In addition to some hair breakage which may take place each day when brushing or pulling the hair, mild hair fallout is to be expected, but not in increasing numbers.

Women who are experiencing hair loss in Miami may begin to notice that a higher amount of hairs are present in their hairbrush or on their pillowcase each morning. While men affected by androgenic alopecia typically see a receding hairline, progressing into a horseshoe pattern, women with thinning hair tend to observe more scalp showing through at the crown, part, temples, and hairline. There are a variety of female hair loss causes, some of which are temporary while others are permanent. Androgenic alopecia is a continuous and progressive hereditary condition which affects approximately 30 million American women or an estimated 50% of women aged 50 and older.

Family History

Family History & Hair Loss

Androgenic alopecia is characterized by hair that falls out and is initially replaced with fine, thinner hairs. However, as it progresses, the follicles will shrink so much that they no longer regenerate new hair. As a result, hair which was once strong and healthy becomes wispy and sparse.

If the hair follicles vary in size when examined under a microscope, that indicates a genetic predisposition to thinning hair. On the other hand, if when examined up close, the strands and follicles appear to be the same size, your thinning hair is likely temporary and caused by factors such as stress, health issues, or medication usage. Temporary fallout or, ‘shock loss’ is also known as telogen effluvium.

Hormones & Hair Loss

Women are often more susceptible to hormonal changes and stress-related factors which cause telogen effluvium.

Women affected by hair loss in Miami are encouraged to speak openly with a hair restoration specialist to determine the cause of their thinning hair. Both emotional and mental stress can cause sudden hair fall several months after an incident or trauma. Additionally, surgery may also cause temporary hair loss.

Health & Hair Loss

Before considering a hair restoration procedure, your plastic surgeon will ask you about your overall health to help determine the reason for the changes you are experiencing. Some medical conditions such as a dysfunctional thyroid can cause thinning or balding. Rapid weight loss or deprivation diets may also result in hair loss. Other factors include high vitamin A consumption, anemia or an iron deficiency. Hormonal changes such as those that take place during pregnancy and menopause can also cause rapid and visible hair fall.

Luckily, these contributing factors are typically temporary which means the hair loss is also temporary. Topical hair growth solutions and adherence to a balanced diet can effectively restore the health of your scalp, promoting hair growth. However, hereditary female pattern baldness requires surgery for women looking to stop their hair loss in Miami. The most advanced treatment option is FUE, a permanent hair restoration procedure.

Treatment Facts:

  • Following the treatment, patients may experience some swelling and sensitivity in the scalp; however, these symptoms are temporary and can be alleviated using an over the counter pain medication or cold compress.
  • You will need to follow your plastic surgeon’s aftercare instructions carefully as it is necessary to avoid activities such as swimming and entering hot tubs to reduce the risk of infection.
  • Most patients can resume their typical day to day activities such as washing their hair within a few days of the transplant.
  • The FUE method achieves a 90% “take” rate, which means that most patients only require one session to gain permanent, natural-looking results. Following your micro-surgery, we’ll provide detailed instructions about caring for your scalp, including which products are recommended to nourish the scalp and hair.
  • Besides the revolutionary FUE approach, we offer platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) which utilizes your body’s growth factors to promote healing and regeneration, improve scalp health and accelerate hair growth. After you hair has passed the shedding stage which typically takes place a few months postoperatively, the final results will be visible within one full year of your procedure. You’ll continue to see strong growth of your new, full hair for many years to come.

At the Miami Hair Transplant clinic, we welcome all patients to relax in our beautiful surroundings and see how their lives can be transformed for the better with personalized, natural and confidential hair restoration.
