Hair Loss > Female Baldness

Female Baldness

Hair Loss is not a phenomenon that happens only to men. Many women lose hair. It is relatively common and a part of natural aging. It is estimated that nowadays 25% of the white race population, suffers of Female Androgenetic Alopecia (FAGA) between 35-45 years of age and a 40% around 50 years of age.

Women affected by hair loss can often lose their self-confidence. No doubt, it has a tremendous impact in their life quality.

In women, normally hair loss happens all through the head, and it is more diffused than in men. Nevertheless, the pattern in female baldness seems to be related with the same factors that cause male hair loss, for example, genes, hormones and age. The scale and range of the emale baldness is ilustrated in Ludwig's Scale:

Fortunately, nowadays, hair transplant offers women and men the same opportunities. Many women were informed in earlier years that nothing could be done. Nowadays, it is possible to:

  • Refill hair thin areas without damaging the existent hair follicles.
  • Insert a larger amount of microimplants to achieve a higher density.
  • Reduce to the minumum the amount of scars in the donor and receptive zones.
  • Completely natural recreation of the first hair line.

Menopause

After Menopause, 20% of the women suffer significant hair loss, as there is a decrease in female hormones. On one hand the existing Testosterone manifests itself, even at normal levels, and on the other hand, the genetic predisposition shows up. This generates an impact that is often associated with low self-esteem and depression in women, but that has to be treated.

In some cases, there may be an alteration in the production of proteins transporting sexual hormones, increasing the quantity of free testosterone with an increase in the conversion process of this hormone into DHT that produces androgenetic alopecia. Examples of this symptomatology are:

  • Thyroid disorder: Wether an excessive increase of thyroid hormone levels (hyperthyroidism) as well as a reduction of thyroid hormone levels (hypothyroidism) may cause alopecia. Hair loss associated to a thyroid disease may be reverted with an appropriate treatment.
  • Idiopathic Alteration: Without apparent cause, with normal hormonal levels but with genetic predisposition.

Both have to be treated, and successful therapy depends on directing a treatment at the underlying causes of hair loss and at the same time getting the appropriate medical treatment prescribed by specialists.
