Female Pattern Hair Loss

Female Pattern Hair Loss

If you suffer from female pattern hair loss, you’ll notice the hair usually only thins on top of the head. It’s not yet totally clear if female pattern hair loss is hereditary and the causes are less well understood than that of male pattern hair loss. It tends to be more noticeable in women who have been through the menopause, perhaps because they have fewer female hormones.

           “Thoroughly professional; caring and re-assuring.  Second visit to the practice, which perhaps tells its own story.  Staff are very supportive and make the procedure all the better.”

“Staff very friendly, excellent service; was comfortable just hoping to see good results soon and will be back for a second procedure – not too much pain either.”

“Well organised and experienced staff – put you completely at ease…pain free experience too!  Many thanks to all…”

“Conscientious and responsible staff and procedures.  All explanations clear and thorough… Glad I found you” ….

“Very nice people; very friendly and take good care of you.”

female pattern hair lossFemale Pattern Hair Loss – Symptoms

Female hair thinning is different from that of male pattern hair loss. In female pattern hair loss hair starts thinning on the top of the scalp or the crown, the front hairline usually remains unaffected apart from that of normal hair recession, which will happen to all females as time passes. Unlike in that of male, hair loss rarely progresses to near or total baldness in female hair loss, symptoms such as itching or skin sores on the scalp are generally not seen.

Skin disorders can be a cause which is why a skin biopsy or blood tests may be used to diagnose that cause of hair loss. Looking at the hair much closer such as under a microscope may be done to check for problems with the structure of the hair shaft itself.

A proper diagnosis by our trained trichologist will determine which form of hair loss you are suffering from, enabling us to offer you guidance regarding which hair transplant treatment to have done.

Female pattern hair loss is permanent, if not treated. In most cases, hair loss is mild to moderate. There are many forms of medication that can be taken, in most women this may slow or stop hair loss, which normally means continuing with the medication for a very long time.

Hair Transplant is another option, you will likely need many transplants, which can be expensive. However, the results are often excellent and permanent.

Other solutions can be a simple change of hairstyle, hair weaving or hair pieces. These are often the least expensive and safest way to deal with female pattern baldness. Whatever the treatment, the first thing that you will need to do is arrange a FREE consultation with our trichologist, this can be done by simply calling us. “Very nice atmosphere; pleasant staff.  Everyone very helpful and everything explained well.”
