Hair loss affects a large percentage of the adult population. When most people think about balding or thinning hair, they think about men. However, a sad truth is that a lot of women deal with hair loss.
Fortunately, hair restoration for women is entirely possible, but obtaining and maintaining the desired result is dependent on choosing the proper treatment regimen. Everything from NeoGraft® and PRP therapy to red light therapy and strip grafting can help restore a full head of hair.
Causes of Hair Loss
Alopecia is the medical term used to define abnormal hair loss. Regardless of the amount of hair loss or hair thinning, the cause has to do with something else going wrong with the body. The hair follicles will produce healthy hair strands so long as a medical condition such as disease, hormonal imbalance or other problem is not affecting overall health.
Hair loss or thinning hair in women can be the result of stress, pregnancy, menopause and even the taking of certain medications. Most often, however, women’s hair loss is the result of a hormonal imbalance. Hormones do their job best when they are in fine balance, and upsetting this balance often results in diffused thinning in one or more areas of the scalp. Chemical imbalances can affect a follicle’s metabolic activity.
One of the most popular options when it comes to hair restoration for women is NeoGraft®. This minimally-invasive treatment involves the extraction and insertion of one to four hairs. PRP therapy involves the use of platelet rich plasma in order to stimulate natural hair growth. Another popular way to encourage the production of natural hair is through red light therapy.
Sometimes, hair restoration for women may require surgical interventions. Strip grafting involves the transplantation of hair follicles into the area of hair loss. This is typically the best option for women with severe hair loss. However, it all depends on the unique situation.
