Hair loss in Female

women hair loss treatment
  • Hair loss is often thought of as a male problem, but it affects many women too. Most women will experience some thinning as they grow older and the symptoms can be severe in some cases.

Causes of Female Hair Loss

  • The most common cause of hair loss in women is female pattern baldness, which happens as hormone levels change with age, especially around the menopause.
  • Other conditions such as the autoimmune condition alopecia, areata and scalp infections can affect women. Some of these possible causes of hair loss are actually more common in women than in men.
  • Women are more likely to experience traction hair loss, which happens when the hair is consistently placed under tension by a particular hairstyle, and the thyroid disorders that can cause thinning of the eyebrows.

Hair Loss Symptoms in Women

  • The symptoms of hair loss in women can be less noticeable than in men, especially if you have longer hair that can conceal thinning or bald patches.
  • However, you are more likely to notice if you are losing long hair when washing or brushing it, or simply because it is easier to spot when it falls out in bed or around the house. Other signs of hair loss in women include:
  • Female pattern baldness typically happens on either side of the hair parting, so you may notice that it is becoming wider.
  • Thinning across the scalp can also happen as women get older or it can be a sign of a condition like telogen effluvium. You may notice that your hair feels less full or that you seem to be losing more of it.
  • Bald spots can appear on the scalp if you have certain skin disorders or alopecia areata, but they may be harder to spot under long hair.

When to Seek Help

  • Although some thinning is normal after the menopause, you should always consult a doctor if you are concerned about hair loss. Losing your hair can have a big impact on your self-esteem, particularly as visible hair loss is less common in women than in men.
  • However, you shouldn’t wait for the hair loss to get worse before you seek help. It is particularly important to see a doctor quickly if you have any other symptoms such as scabbing or itchiness as you may need treatment for a skin disorder as well as help restoring your hair.

Hair Loss Treatment For Women

  • The treatment options for hair loss in women are similar to those available for men. Various options are available that can address different kinds of hair loss:

  • PRP therapy can stimulate the natural growth and regeneration processes in the scalp
  • Scalp micropigmentation may help to conceal diffuse thinning in women
  • Hair transplants can restore follicles to bald areas or make the hair thicker

  • review rating 5  I had my hair transplant at Beyond Med Centre on 20th February 2019, it was an incredible experiences. Not only was i put at ease and felt comfortable but during the procedure i was offered excellent entertainment, food and refreshments! I am so pleased with the results and the aftercare provided, something most people don’t think about, but to have the support has been a great comfort. I would highly recommend Beyond Med Centre for any procedure, the staff are professional and friendly whilst the centre it self is state of the art, luxurious and relaxing.

  • review rating 5  Fantastic clinic with state of the art facilities in high St Kensington. Consultation was really good as I got to meet surgeon on the day also. I even spoke to patients who have had their surgery with BMC and that was very assuring. The price I was given was extremely competitive. I’m so glad I found BMC and have avoided travelling abroad for surgery as that can be a hit and miss. Can’t wait for my surgery!!! Thank you BMC and all their staff esp Mo the patient coordinator.

    thumb Alan Kennedy
  • review rating 5  Lovely doctor called Dr Ha who is so friendly and caring. Everything was explained in detail and with honesty. The price offered was very competitive and no need to travel abroad anymore as I got the price I wanted in the UK. Medical surgery fees are so overcharged in the UK and this ultimately leaves patients with no option but to travel abroad and have surgery however this always comes with a risk. Looking forward to the surgery now !! 100% recommend BMC esp those who are considering surgery abroad.
