When it comes to hair loss, women are different than men.

Women don’t get “male pattern baldness.” Women, it turns out, can lose hair just as much (though not as often) as men but for other reasons. Unlike men, women’s’ hair is more likely to be lost throughout the entire scalp in a diffuse manner. Women are also more likely to lose their hair in one spot, leaving a bald patch. This is often due to androgenic alopecia (which can also happen in men).

Women also don’t seek hair loss restoration treatment as often as men. One reason is that many don’t know that there are treatments available, including hair restoration by a qualified hair restoration surgeon.

For many women, hair loss can be temporary due to a stress event such as major surgery, pregnancy, medicines, divorce or a death in the family. Your hair restoration surgeon can help you determine what type of stress might be causing the hair loss.

There are non-surgical treatments for hair loss restoration in women. They include Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) which can be performed in the comfort of your own home with the FDA approved Laser Cap. Minoxodil is a non-prescription medication that can be used by both men and women.
