Is Hair Restoration The Same For Men and Women?

What makes women’s hair restoration different from men? What works best for men experiencing hair loss IS NOT necessarily what works best for women. For example, for nearly 90 percent of balding men in the United States, hair restoration surgery is a good option. However, very few women have the type of hair loss that makes them good candidates.

The trained professionals at Dermatex Hair Replacement in San Diego and Orange County specialize in hair restoration for women. Most women have an overall thinning in all areas of the head. This diffused hair loss makes hair transplantation more difficult and is a good example of why hair restoration for men and women can differ.

How is Women’s Hair Restoration Different From Men

Because men affected by male pattern baldness or androgenetic  alopecia, typically do not lose hair on the sides of their head, they maintain donor sites that are stable for a transplant. However, female pattern baldness causes donor sites to be deemed unstable, meaning the hair and follicles are affected by the dihydrotesterone (DHT) that causes follicles to shrink. If unstable donor sites are used for transplantation, the results will most likely be very disappointing, because it will simply fall out. Another consideration that makes women’s hair restoration different from men is that the frontal hairline is differennt between male and female pattern baldness. Women typically do not need to worry about framing their face with a natural frontal hairline because that is not where they tend to experience hair loss.

Options for Female Hair Restoration

Depending on your specific hair loss condition and concerns the treatments can vary. Some options may include:

  • Non-Surgical Hair Replacement: a totally undetectable, proven, non-surgical hair replacement solution. Reallusions is cutting edge technology that can provide increased hair density in women.
  • Medications, vitamins, and minerals may be a simple solution to begin restoring your hair. Some forms of hair loss are temporary and hair can be restored though proper diet, stress reduction, and/or medications.
  • Laser hair loss treatment and prevention therapy is a breakthrough technology that puts your body’s own ability to grow hair into overdrive. Basically, Low Level Lasers “energize” the tissue since light is a form of energy creating a hyper-stimulation. This treatment can be safe, effective and painless.
