A lot of patients come to the Avenues clinic for Hair Loss Treatment in Ahmedabad and most of the patients are males but it does not mean women are not victims of hair loss. In fact, a female may face pattern hair loss and in the case of a female patient, the disease is called female pattern baldness. Women rarely go completely bald but they face severe hair loss and hair thinning due to the same reasons.
Some reasons for hair loss in women are different from the reasons for hair loss in men. For example, a female patient might face hair loss due to pregnancy, menopause, extreme physical or mental stress, anemia, and hairstyles.
The pattern of hair loss in women:
Before we talk about the treatment of hair loss in women, we have to have a look at the pattern of hair loss in women.
The pattern of women is quite different from the pattern of hair loss in men. In males, the baldness affects the hairline, crown area, and temple to form a horseshoe shape at the end of the progression of baldness.
In does not happen in the case of females and females face severe hair thinning and hair loss but bald patches are rare in females. Widening of the mid-part is possible in females.
This pattern of hair loss is not helpful in the treatment of baldness in females because in males, a thin layer is left on the sides and back and the same hairs are used as the donor hairs for the surgery. In females, there is not a donor zone.
However, the qualified surgeons try to provide proper treatment to female patients by using three approaches. The three approaches are explained below.
In this approach, the doctor tries to prevent or reduce the effects of baldness with the help of medicines like Minoxidil that is an FDA approved medicine. The patients have to apply for this medicine on the scalp and it is supposed to stop further hair loss. Sometimes, hair growth is also observed but the patient has to use it regularly to keep the results stable.
Non –surgical treatments:
There are some non-surgical treatments like PRP hair loss treatment, laser therapy, mesotherapy, etc. These treatments are used in the case of mild hair loss or the start of female pattern baldness.
Females are not ideal candidates for surgical treatment but in some cases, hair transplant is possible for female patients.
The surgeon may decide to perform a hair transplant in the following conditions:
∙ For the patients of traction alopecia
∙ For victims of burn accidents
∙ For hair loss around the incision sites after a cosmetic procedure
∙ In a hair loss pattern that is similar to the male pattern baldness
