Hair Restoration for Women, What are the available solutions?


Female hair loss is very common, more than most people realize.

Female-pattern hair loss is typically characterized by a general thinning throughout the scalp.  Thinning hair for women typically begins at menopause when estrogen levels begin to drop and are unable to counteract the effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

The progression of female-pattern hair loss is illustrated by the Ludwig Scale classes 1-3.  Class 1 is the least severe where thinning is on top of the head.  A class 3 patient will require additional donor hair to obtain full coverage.

DHT is also the primary cause of male-pattern hair loss, which is characterized by hair thinning around the temples and crown of the head.  DHT causes hair to thin over time to the point of eventually falling out and resulting in hair loss.  The progression of male-pattern hair loss is illustrated by the Ludwig Scale.

Hair loss treatments for women include: hair transplant surgery, the Bosley Laser Comb and Bosley Professional Strength for Women.

Bosley Professional Strength for Women

Hair transplant surgery is a relatively simple outpatient procedure that typically takes 3/4 to one full day to complete.  To learn more about permanent hair restoration for women, schedule a free, private consultation with a Bosley Senior Counselor.  There is no obligation.

The Bosley LaserComb, which is FDA cleared for men and women uses the process of  photo-biostimulation. This process delivers laser energy to hair follicles, which may increase blood flow and improve circulation in the scalp.  The increase of blood flow in the scalp helps deliver vital nutrients as well as effectively remove waste products.
