When it comes to hair loss, people often forget that women can suffer too. Women can suffer from genetic or hormonal hair loss, called androgenic alopecia or female pattern baldness; this differs from men in that woman are less prone to bald spots but often suffer from thinning hair throughout the head. In most cases, the hairline will stay the same. Unlike men, women rarely go completely bald, but any sort of hair loss can be detrimental to one’s self-image and confidence. At Hair Restoration Philadelphia, we are dedicated to helping you control and manage your hair loss and bring back your confidence.
Some factors that can contribute to hair loss for women:
- Hormone imbalance
- Changing or stopping oral contraception
- Changes in hormones post menopause
- Alopecia from tight hairstyles
Dr. Goldfarb will work with you on an individualized treatment plan that will be most effective for your given situation with our minimally-invasive procedures. The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method is a surgical technique that extracts individual hairs one at a time from the donor’s posterior scalp region. This method is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using small circular punches of only 1.0 mm to remove the individual follicular units from the back of the scalp, and then reimplanting the harvested follicular units back into the scalp in the bald spots. There are no stitches, no linear scarring, no cutting, and little no recovery time. Dr. Goldfarb will target each single hair follicle to create natural looking hair.
