Female Hair Loss Specialist Los Angeles
Our Female Hair Loss Treatment Options: Hair Transplant & Restoration
We provide non-invasive treatments and hair transplants for women suffering from hair loss and female pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) in Burbank, California, and the Los Angeles area.
Significant hair loss cases may require going the surgical route. Hair transplants are the gold-standard treatment for hair loss, as they offer a more permanent and effective solution. The two main hair transplant techniques are: Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) and Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
FUT is done by removing a strip of the scalp, which will leave linear scarring. The surgeon then separates the hair follicles from the sample and transplants them onto the recipient site. The wound is sutured or stapled closed after.
The FUE hair transplant method involves extracting and relocating the individual hair follicles onto the recipient site. This procedure can be done manually or by automation. At Burbank Hair Transplant, we offer the Neograft Hair Restoration System to perform automated FUE.
How Female Hair Transplant Differs from Male Hair Transplant
The procedure for women is more demanding because female patients have more healthy hair in the balding or thinning areas than men, requiring your doctor to be more careful in transplanting the follicles to avoid damaging the existing hair. Compared to men who suffer from receding frontal hairlines, females struggle with losing hair in the center of their scalps instead. As such, female hair transplants also focus more on restoring volume.
Additionally, hair follicles generally cannot be harvested from the back of a woman’s head as this area tends to be predisposed to thinning hair.
More About Treating Hair Loss for Women
For most women, female pattern baldness can start in their midlife (40s, 50s, or 60s), although it can begin earlier for some.
In stimulating hair growth via hormones, a female patient may be recommended either estrogen therapy or combination therapy, the latter containing both estrogen and progesterone.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to hair restoration. We highly recommend speaking to a qualified female hair loss doctor about the best treatment for your situation.
