    Default Hair Loss Treatment

    Hi everyone. I am a 34 year old woman and have been experiencing severe hair loss from the age of 17. I was thinking of getting a hair transplant. Will I get a head full of hair after undergoing this treatment? Also how long does it take for a transplant to grow? Can anyone recommend a good hair transplant centre in Dallas.

    Thank You...

    If you have female pattern baldness, which is actually a diffuse type of hair loss, you probably art not a good candidate for hair transplant surgery. If you have a stable pattern, more like a man then it can work well. You won’t see the end result of a transplant for at least a year. The best place to start looking for a hair transplant surgeon is www.iahrs.org

    When it comes to diagnosing hair loss in women, a dermatologist or hair loss specialist is the person for the job. Dermoscopy is the best technique for evaluating hair loss. Scalp dermoscopy is key for differentiating between the different types of hair loss. Women who suffer from hair loss often have Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL), which is diffuse hair loss. As mentioned above, women with diffuse hair loss patterns are often not good candidates for hair transplant because they do not have a sufficient donor supply. If you have not tried any treatments for your hair loss yet, you should try Rogaine and maybe even low level laser therapy (LLLT). Recent studies have shown LLLT to be an effective treatment, and it is the only FDA approved medical device for hair loss on the market. The capillus cap is great because of its versatility. Other treatments that may work for you include ketoconazole 2% shampoo or topical steroid creams. Have you been tested for any underlying medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)? Women with PCOS usually benefit from taking Spironolactone. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing androgen antagonist. Due to its anti-androgen properties, it can aid in treating hair loss for women who are sensitive to androgens. Some doctors even prescribe Finasteride to women with FPHL. Finasteride is not FDA approved for the use in women and not every women will be a candidate. Every woman is different, therefore, the treatment for one woman with FPHL may not work for another. Additionally, many FPHL sufferers benefit from a multi-pharmacological approach. Having an initial scalp analysis will be key to your treatment strategy.

    Good question, it is always best to gather maximum information on this topic before jumping on to decision. Hair transplant surgery can be a life changing cosmetic procedure, if done on the right hair and scalp characteristics. However, not every hair loss sufferer gets the expected results. The key to determining good candidates for hair restoration surgery is estimating what the patient's hair loss pattern might be. In general, women with stable donor hair who exhibit more of a male pattern, than a female diffuse un-patterned hair loss are considered better candidate for hair transplantation. Make sure you get the chance to understand the positive and negative (especially the negative) things you have going for you or against you when it comes to transplants.
    BTW, have you thought or tried any drug treatment like minox before?
