About Hereditary Hair Loss in Women

If you are a woman suffering from hereditary hair loss, you are not alone. While less common among women, hereditary hair loss affects about 30 million American women. That accounts for almost 40% of total hair loss sufferers.

Also known as androgenetic alopecia or female pattern baldness, hereditary hair loss in women is caused by the same problem as in men: hair follicles that are genetically susceptible to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Less attention has been paid to treating female pattern baldness, making effective treatment options less accessible to women.

SmartGraft® offers women an alternative to traditional hair transplant options. Naples-Fort Myers area board-certified plastic surgeon Kent V. Hasen, M.D. understands the physical and emotional factors involved with hair restoration for women. He performs SmartGraft for women who want to regrow their own hair with lasting results and no scarring.

Benefits of SmartGraft Hair Restoration for Women

The major benefits of SmartGraft are the same for women as for men. The procedure is quicker than treatments performed with similar devices, such as NeoGraft®, and is more comfortable and more affordable than older approaches. It also doesn’t leave a scar.

The procedure does not require much time away from work — most patients can return to work the following day. You also don’t have to wear something on your head to cover the inconspicuous treatment areas.

The transplanted hairs blend in with the rest of your hair for natural-looking results. Over time, your new hair will fill in the thinning areas for a fuller head of hair, boosting your self-image and confidence.

SmartGraft for Revision Facial Surgery

Dr. Hasen also uses SmartGraft hair restoration in cases where a woman has had facial cosmetic surgery. Poor technique can alter the hairline, leaving it looking unnatural. To cover this, the patient may even change how she wears her hair. With SmartGraft, Dr. Hasen can transfer hairs to restore the natural hairline.

Nonsurgical Options

Often, women achieve better results with nonsurgical options like PRP therapy, LaserCap®, and Rogaine® rather than hair transplants because they typically have smaller heads with fewer hair follicles. These treatments can also be combined with SmartGraft for optimal effectiveness.

  • LaserCap® is an at-home device that uses low-level laser light therapy to stimulate the hair follicles. It is non-invasive and requires no downtime. Typically, the discreet cap is worn every other day for 30 minutes, with results starting to appear in about 12 weeks.
  • PRP Therapy utilizes platelets from a patient’s own blood and stem cells to replenish hair follicles, promote regrowth, and prevent further thinning.

Other Causes of Hair Loss in Women

Causes of hair loss in women are not as straightforward as those for men. Besides the DHT issue, hair loss can result from factors including hair products, tightly pulled hairstyles, poor nutrition, stress, medications, pregnancy or other hormone-related issues, and illness. If your hair loss seems sudden or you think it may be related to one of these issues, consult your primary care physician or dermatologist.
