HAIR RESTORATION FOR WOMEN
Hair loss also occurs in women and it is often devastating to a woman’s self-image. In fact, women account for up to 40% of hair loss sufferers in the United States. At The Maryland Hair Center, we understand the unique needs that women have when it comes to hair replacement.
Women suffer from hair loss due to a variety of factors. You may find that your hair is thinning because of one or a combination of the following:
- Hormonal Changes
- Iron Deficiency
- Thyroid Disease
- Weight Loss
Dr Cappuccino may recommend a medical evaluation with your primary care doctor or a dermatologist to see if there is an underlying medical condition leading to your hair loss.
Female pattern hair loss causes many women to seek our help. Female pattern hair loss is different from male pattern hair loss. Female pattern hair loss is typically a thinning or progression of hair loss starting from the middle of the scalp outwards. Unlike men, the frontal hairline is often spared. Unlike men who tend to have a permanent supply of thick donor hair at the back and sides of their scalp, women tend to thin all over the scalp including the fringe areas. This thinning often makes women poor candidates for hair transplantation, although this is best determined on an individual basis. Often non-surgical treatments such as PRP or Low-Level Laser Therapy are better options for women with thinning hair. After a, thorough consultation and examination, Dr. Cappuccino can recommend the best hair transplant or hair restoration treatment for you.
