Hair Transplant for Women
The majority of clients of hair transplant clinics are men. Women are less likely to resort to hair transplants. This is due to the fact that alopecia affects about 80% of men worldwide and only about 30-40% of women. However, hair loss is much more difficult for women. Baldness causes them constant moral distress, strong psycho-emotional discomfort and makes them carefully hide and mask shortcomings. Hair transplant for women will help to permanently solve the problem when oils, nourishing hair masks, as well as taking vitamins have no effect.
Causes of hair loss in women
The causes of hair loss in women and men are generally similar. For example, alopecia in men in the vast majority of cases is caused by an increased level of androgens, which, as a rule, is due to a genetic predisposition. These same hormones can also cause hair loss in women. But in this case, we are talking about diseases of the endocrine system, an imbalance in the hormonal background or taking hormonal drugs. This type of hair loss in women is called androgenic alopecia.
Also among the common causes of hair loss in women are:
- Damage to the scalp due to burns and injuries;
- Mechanical or chemical damage to the hair, for example, due to wearing dreadlocks / braids, unsuccessful coloring, etc.
Androgenic alopecia in women
With androgenic alopecia in women, hair loss occurs from the frontal part of the head to the crown of the head. The cause is hormonal imbalance that stops the hair growth function. The severity of alopecia in women is assessed using the Ludwig scale. There are 3 degrees in total. Transplantation is most often indicated for 2 and 3 degrees of alopecia.
There are three main types of hair loss in women:
This species is characterized by uniform and severe hair loss from the front of the head to the crown.
It manifests itself as one or more baldness zones in the parietal and frontal areas of the head.

Hair falls out gradually from the forehead to the back of the head. In this case, the hairline shifts higher and changes shape (V or M-shape)
Ways to Treat Hair Loss in Women
Treatment for hair loss in women depends on the characteristics and form of the disease. In order to start treatment, the patient first needs to be examined at the clinic. The doctor will conduct a comprehensive diagnosis, identify the cause and suggest a course of treatment aimed at eliminating the immediate cause of the disease.
One of the most radical, yet effective ways to treat baldness is hair transplant. This type of comfortable helps restore hair in many cases. The comfortable involves the transfer of hair follicles from the donor area of the patient to the baldness area. The procedure is comfortable, effective and does not require long rehabilitation.
Medication treatment of baldness. As a rule, for the treatment of alopecia, drugs based on minoxidil are used primarily for external use. The funds are available in the form of a solution, spray, foam, ampoules, etc. The therapy will be lifelong and stopping the procedure guarantees a relapse. Most often, this method of treatment is used in the early stages of hair loss.

Healthy nutrition. This method can be considered as additional and applicable to any other way of treating alopecia. Patients are advised follow to a healthy diet; include in it a sufficient amount of protein, iron, Omega-3, zinc and vitamins of groups A, B, C and H.
Hair transplant for women

Its essence lies in the fact that healthy follicles from the donor area (most often the occiput and temples) are transferred to the baldness area. Hair survival rate is about 95-98%, and this is the highest result to date. The comfortable is minimally invasive, does not leave scars and does not require long rehabilitation. Micro instruments are used for transplantation, the diameter of which is less than 1 mm. During the procedure, the doctor transfers the follicles, maintaining the natural angle of inclination of each hair, so the end result always looks natural.
Hair transplant for women by the FUE method
Like any comfortable, hair transplant takes place in several stages:
- The doctor prepares the donor area by shaving off a small area so that it can be easily hidden after the procedure. With a special instrument (punch), the doctor extracts the required number of grafts (a bundle of hair follicles together with the skin).
- The extracted grafts are moved to a special container, treated and sorted.
- Further, all grafts are implanted one by one into the baldness zone one by one into the prepared micro-incisions. When transplanting, the doctor observes the natural angle and direction of hair growth.
- After the transplant, the doctor’s assistants treat the area with antiseptics and carry out the first bandaging
