According to the American Academy of Dermatology, approximately 40% of women experience hair loss by the age of 40. Hair loss can be both devastating and emotional, deeply affecting self image and confidence. Like men, women can suffer from genetic, hormone related hair loss known as androgenic alopecia: female pattern baldness.
The pattern of hair loss in women differs from male pattern baldness. In women, the hair becomes thinner all over the head, and the hairline does not recede. Androgenic alopecia in women rarely leads to total baldness.
Women share some of the same causes for hair loss as their male counterparts, but may also suffer hair loss due to certain gender specific causes:
- Hormonal imbalances, which can begin as early as puberty
- Changing or stopping oral contraceptives
- Changes in hormones post menopause
- Severe hairstyles such as tight braids
Dr. Goldfarb can successfully treat female patients with the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, which incorporates the latest minimally invasive technology and advanced grafting techniques.
