A female hair transplant is medically possible. But is it a good idea?
Your hair is your #1 fashion accessory, and it's not supposed to thin or go bald. That's supposed to be a man's problem. At least this is the perception.
However, this is not true.
About 30 percent of women will experience hair loss sometime within their lifetime. It's more common than most people think. There are several reasons that hair loss is generally thought of as just a man's problem. And why few ever hear of women having hair translpants.
Who in their right mind is going to ask you, even if your hair loss is obvious - "Hey, are you losing your hair?" You might talk to your hair stylist about your hair loss (and how to hide it), but few others.
However, being able to hide female hair loss better doesn't mean you feel any better about it. It still robs you of your self-confidence. You will always wonder if it is noticeable to others, and since nobody is going to point it out or ask you about it, you'll tend to become self-conscious or nervous.
Hair transplantation is done by taking little bits of skin containing hair follicles, and moving them over to a thinning area where the hairs are needed. The place where these patches of skin are taken from is called the "donor area."
Since female hair loss tends to be more generalized, there is often not enough donor area to make a hair transplant possible for women. You will need to consult with a doctor to determine if the procedure would be worth it.
Men's hair loss is usually more central and not spread around the head, so it is easier for them to find a good donor area. With female hair transplants, this is not often the case. Women often don't have a good donor area that can provide enough hairs to cover up the hair loss elsewhere on the head.
Also, female hair transplants may not hold for long. This is true for men, too. The transplant is done, but the hair loss progresses. This means that more follicles stop producing hairs, and even the transplanted areas can fade as well. This can result in a very patchy head with odd patterns of obvious thinning areas.
Another transplant may be done, but this process can continue. Some people have had three hair transplants, but with the hair loss progressing it becomes a losing battle and results in a very odd looking head of hair.
For those women who are a candidate for a hair transplant, and who choose to have it done, there is good news. You can increase your chance of success by using the laser after the transplant.
The laser will have the effect of thickening the hair in general, and makes the transplant take hold better. You end up with fuller, thicker hair, and the chances of the transplant locations succeeding are increased.
Lasers actually help for both male hair transplants and female hair transplants. You give the newly located hairs the best chance of thriving in their new home.
You don't have to live with female hair loss. Not being able to have a hair transplant is not the end of the world. We offer women hair growth with our 90 laser dome.
Because of the all-over nature of female hair loss, the best hair laser to give women real results is a dome configuration. This gives you the all-over coverage that you need.
While our two-panel systems will suffice for most men, for women the laser needs to reach all over the head. What you need is a device that covers the head more completely. Male pattern baldness is focused on the top of the head and the hairline. Yours is not, it's all over. Our 90 laser dome drenches your head with 90 well-placed, effective lasers.
You'll notice that it looks like a salon hair dryer. But instead of drying your hair, this has the purpose of restoring thicker, fuller hair.
Emotionally, you have everything to gain by restoring your self-confidence. For women great hair is a tremendous confidence booster. You will feel self-assured when you see thicker, fuller hair. When you see it for yourself you'll be able to relax, to enjoy life again and not worry about people looking at your hair.
"I'm glad you wrote as I've been wanting to talk to you. I've sold enough of these things for you I'm beginning to think I should join your sales staff...
"I would be happy to send you a photo if you need one. I don't have great before and after photos but I can tell you that I no longer feel badly about my hair so I know that your product has worked for me.
"Others can see it too, especially my family members who have all purchased one too. I have used the light 3 times per week religiously except when on vacation for just over a year. I can still feel the stubble feeling now when I run my hand through my hair so I know it's still doing it's job. I decided to use Rogaine with it too just to have extra help but the Rogaine alone never really worked for me. My hair is healthier now as well.
"I have tried many things to prevent hairloss and thicken my hair and this is the only thing that has worked for me other than pregnancy. That was how I knew it was possible to have more hair on my head because I had it when I was pregnant. It fell out about 4 months post partum and I was very sad to see it go.
"Good luck!Susan Disclaimer: individual results may vary
