Modern day hair restoration solutions have attained entirely new levels of precision and sophistication in the past decade. When combined with superb surgical skills, women can now have their beautiful locks back. There are three treatment options available for treating women hair loss:
Hair transplantation can help women restore the lost luster and thickness of their hair. There are certain treatments to facilitate hair transplantation and regrowth in women.
FUT method (Follicular Unit Transfer)
FUT or Follicular unit transfer is the more widely performed procedure for hair transplant for women. It includes removing a narrow strip of hair from the back of the scalp. The grafts from this strip are separated and implanted into areas where balding is noticed.
The recipient area is then sewn up and the stitches are removed eventually. It may result in the presence of a slight scar. The healing time for a FUT procedure can take anywhere between a week and a month.
FUE method (Follicular Unit Extraction)
FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is a sophisticated and highly effective method of hair transplant for women that is minimally invasive. It involves the extraction of hair follicles from a designated area known as the donor area. Each hair follicle is extracted separately. This area generally has continuous growth of hair and is typically at the back of one’s head. Follicles are prepared into follicular unit grafts and transplanted into the recipient area that is a deficit of hair. There is no scarring when it comes to the FUE procedure and the recovery period is not long. This procedure is pricier than the FUE as it is more labor intensive.
PRP for Hair (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a therapy by means of an injection and is meant to aid the regeneration and healing of injuries. Platelets help in the clotting of wounds but also play a role in the healing process. This treatment is now being widely used to treat hair loss. The patient’s plasma is extracted from their own blood and this is injected into various parts of the scalp. With the extraction of plasma certain healing factors are also extracted and these promote the regrowth of hair where previously there was no hair.
All procedures have slight risks associated with them. Before undergoing any invasive procedure, it is important to get properly diagnosed by a medical professional so as to avoid complications in the future. Female hair transplants must be performed by certified professionals in a sterile environment. Post-surgery care is also very important to avoid the risk of infections and to decrease the need to perform the procedure again.
Hair loss in women is not as apparent and common compared to men but has far-reaching effects on their self-esteem and confidence. Contrary to the general perception, hair loss is quite widespread than is actually realized. Owing to social and cultural expectations, hair loss often takes a toll on a woman’s state of mind and emotional wellbeing since beautiful hair is regarded as an integral part of a woman’s attractiveness and femininity.
Women suffering from hair loss – regardless of short or long term, thinning or with bald patches – should never feel isolated or shunned out as we have treatments exclusively for hair loss.

Causes of Hair Loss In Women
Research shows that female pattern hair loss is entirely of a different nature compared to hail loss seen in men since it has a complex and uneven inheritance, and so, it becomes tough to predict the degree of hair loss among women in a family. There are some known trigger factors that cause hair loss in women.
Events such as menopause, child birth, trauma, any major surgical procedure, illness and hormonal changes.
Another common reason for hair loss are tightly worn hair styles. This exerts a constant pulling tension on the hair – a condition known as traction alopecia. Hair that is compulsively plucked or pulled on also leads to bald patches known as Trichotillomania. This sub conscious behavior may lead to permanent hair loss.
Bald patches can also be due to scarring from wounds and burns or from intense therapies such as chemotherapy or radio therapy. Chronic protein deficiency and oral contraceptives lead to decreased thyroid function that eventually causes hair loss.
Hair loss and hair fall can be a devastating condition if it is severe. However, this can easily be treated either surgically by minimally invasive methods or medically. Hair transplants can deliver permanent and long-lasting results to resolve any aesthetic issues that women may have.
