Hair Loss Treatment for Women
Female hair loss is much more common than often thought, affecting over 8 million women in the UK alone. Our hair is our crowning glory, being associated with femininity, youth and health, so it’s no surprise that when women lose their hair, it can cause a substantial psychological effect; creating low self esteem and sometimes being the cause of depression.
There are a number of causes for female hair loss, including alopecia, hormones, stress and some medical conditions such as hypothyroidism, due to this, it’s always a good idea to visit your GP if you think you may be suffering from hair loss.
What is Hair Transplant?
A majority of the women face hair loss and hair thinning during some point of their life due to various factors like diet, medication, stress, genes, hormones deficiency etc. While hair loss is not the end of the world, hair is part of the beauty regime making up for her personality and charm. Hair loss and hair thinning can sometimes create lack of confidence and difficulty while living in a social community.
For these reasons, Hair transplant is a life-saver, a surgical technique for hair loss treatment where individual hair follicles from a hairy area or donor site is transplanted onto a bald or barren area on any part of the body. Hair transplants are permanent and prevent future hair loss; hair grows 4-6 months after the transplantation but normally varies from individual to individual.
Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatments :
• PRP therapy for women
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a non surgical treatment for female hair loss that involves stem cell injection. The PRP injection involves the use of an FDA approved wound healing powder which when injected into the scalp activates the stem cells of the hair follicles. When concentrated platelets of the human blood (containing proteins and other particles) injected at the injury site, it triggers the body’s ability to produce new bone cells or soft tissues. It also has application in orthopedics and sports to accelerate and assist recovery from injury. This therapy is applicable for men as well. However, the present cost of PRP treatment can be considerable as multiple sessions might be required to achieve the desired result(s). Presently, there is no clinical proof yet to support that it works but the results are very promising. For more details : Click Here
• Mesotherapy for women
Mesotherapy is an alternative treatment for baldness that helps women restore hair growth. Studies suggest that the naturally occurring DHT or dehydrotestosterone hormone is the key factors that cause hair loss. In this form of treatment, the scalp is basically given a vitamin boost which helps to improve the blood circulation of that area which allows the hair follicles to be better nourished. Here, the treatment is done via an injection gun as compared to injecting by the hand. This enables the treatment to be potentially less painful and faster. As many as 5 sections of mesotherapy might be required for a period of 4 to 6 months for visible results. Very soon mesotherapy will potentially eliminate the need for hair transplant surgery.

Surgical Hair Loss Treatments :
• Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) :
Follicular Unit Extraction is a type of hair transplant where individual hair follicle from the nape of the neck is transplanted onto a bald or barren area. The technique is relatively new and performed only by a few expert surgeons at the Nu Hair Clinic in UK. The whole process is quite labour intensive and time consuming as it depends on the density of the hair and the treatment area.
The surgery will take place in different sessions over a span of days, the surgeon and his team carefully and painstakingly do the transplantation under local anaesthesia. The main instrument used for the FUE is an 8mm – 1mm punch, which is used to take the hair follicles from the donor site. After the follicular extraction, the hair follicles are implanted onto the desired area at specific angles ensuring better chance of success after 6-12 months of treatment.

• Follicular Unit Strip Hair :
Another popular and in-demand hair transplantation procedure is Follicular Unit Strip, where strips of hair are removed from the back or sides of the head and then transplanted onto the desired area in the body. 1-3 units of hair follicles are removed by surgeons and then implanted into the area of thinning and baldness.
The surgeons at Nu Hair Clinic are experts in the field and are careful while making incisions as tiny as a pin prick. The whole treatment is performed under local anaesthesia and takes 4 – 7 hours depending on the treatment area and looks very natural and is not noticeable by anyone else.

Recovery Process :
Soon after the hair transplantation, your scalp may be a little sore for which you will be required to take antibiotics and other medications to reduce any inflammation or infection. You may resume work soon after the surgery and it is normal for the transplanted hair to fall out after two or three weeks making way for new hair growth in a span of 9-12 months. Rogaine or Propecia is prescribed by doctors to improve hair re-growth and stop future hair loss.
After the transplant, hair has to be taken care of to maintain its beauty and lustre. Any strenuous activity must be avoided for two weeks soon after the procedure, and all the instructions advised by the doctors must be strictly followed to have beautiful hair for a longer time. Hair can be gently washed soon after the treatment with the given medication as per doctor’s instructions.
