Bosley Hair Restoration for Women – Before and After Photo Galleries
Though many associate hair restoration with men, statistics show that permanent hair restoration procedures for women have risen.
Hair is important for social communication, sexual attraction and acts as a marker for identity. 15% of women experience some degree of noticeable hair loss by the age of 30. This is approximately 40 million women in the United States, most of whom do not feel it is normal or acceptable.
The primary cause of male-pattern hair loss is the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT causes hair to thin slowly over time, eventually to the point of falling out and causing male-pattern hair loss. The degrees of male-pattern hair loss are illustrated by the Norwood Scale.
Hair loss in women is typically characterized by a general thinning throughout the scalp, which usually begins at menopause. Before menopause, DHT is counteracted by estrogen but when these levels drop it’s possible that the follicles can be affected by DHT causing hair to thin over time.
Female-pattern hair loss is illustrated by the Ludwig Scale with Classes 1-3.
Bosley permanent hair restoration surgery is available to men and women. The procedure is relatively simple and is done on an outpatient basis at a regionally located surgical center. The typical procedure will take anywhere from 3/4 to one full day to complete. Given local anesthesia is used, Bosley patients will often read, eat, watch movies and even sleep during the procedure.
