At Dezire Clinic, we recognize women suffering with hair loss require a customized and different treatment plan than men when considering hair and eyebrow restoration. Compared to men, hair loss in women manifests in different patterns, generally is more diffuse, and can occur at any age. In men, there is a strong genetic pattern, whereas in women other underlying conditions play major role in thinning of the hair.
Hair loss in women is a devastating disorder that can be treated medically or non surgical technique . For women, a thorough disease specific medical evaluation is necessary in treating hair disorders by a specialist doctor. Women typically notice hair loss during the menopausal period with reduced hair density usually in the middle of the scalp that thins laterally. The hair is often miniaturized because of a longer resting telogen phase. Rarely hair loss occurs in the frontal hairline.
Every patient evaluated in our clinic undergoes clinical examination of the scalp and medical evaluation for their current hair loss. The work up and evaluation of female hair loss is quite different than men. We take your hair loss seriously by performing a underlying disease specific medical evaluation. A compete history and physical examination is the first step in evaluating women with hair loss and this is done at your initial consultation with our expert hair restoration specialist
Diffuse hair loss is caused by a variety of conditions other than “hereditary balding.” A disease specific work up is important because it establishes whether hair loss treatment is managed by medical, surgical, or a combination of both treatment options. The final decision to have hair transplant procedure is generally dependent upon whether your hair loss appears to have stopped, your loss is mainly at the hairline, and balding is concentrated in one or two areas.
When should I consider hair transplantation?
In male pattern baldness the sides and back are still covered with hair. Men who have this balding pattern usually have successful hair transplant surgery. The donor hair from the back of the scalp survives the procedure and continues to grow on the area it is transplanted on the scalp.
DHT is what’s responsible for the balding pattern. DHT, however, does not have any adverse effect on the hair follicle on the sides and back of the head. Typically, these areas of the head have healthy hair follicles, and the hair in these areas is excellent for use in hair transplant surgery. Referred to as stable sites, the hair follicles in these areas don’t shrink or affected by DHT.

There are basically two types of surgical procedures available for women who want desire thicker hair or fuller eyebrows. For those women who are eligible to have surgery, the procedures available are the Strip method, and a simpler and less invasive surgical method called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
