WOMEN’S HAIR RESTORATION
Understanding Female Hair Loss and the NeoGraft® Procedure
Did you know women make up 40 percent of the total population suffering from hair loss? Fortunately, there are minimally invasive women’s hair restoration procedures available. Whether you have a family history of female hair loss or you are the first person in your family to suffer from the condition, a NeoGraft® hair transplant can help.
How a Hair Transplant Works
Most people lose anywhere between 50 to 100 hairs each day. If you seem to be losing more hair than average, you may be one of the millions of women who suffer from hereditary hair loss. At Dermatology Specialists, we offer a safe and highly effective women’s hair transplant process. We use the NeoGraft® hair transplant procedure to help you regrow your own natural hair with minimal discomfort or downtime. The procedure works like this:
- Hair follicles are extracted from the “donor area” on the back of your head. The grafts are chosen to ensure consistency in hair length and diameter. Because the follicles on the back of the head are immune to hair loss, new hair quickly grows into the donor area once the site has healed.
- The follicular units collected from the donor area are separated into units of up to four hairs each. Separation is typically done by size to ensure the most natural appearance.
- Recipient sites for the hair follicle grafts are created in the thinning area. Care is taken to ensure the new hairs are inserted at the proper angle and orientation.
- After transplantation, the donor hairs remain in place for up to three weeks before shedding. Once they have shed, new growth usually begins within four months.
There are many factors that can lead to female hair loss, including genetics, excess stress and medical conditions. Regardless of the cause, a women’s hair transplant can help restore your appearance and self-confidence.
