About Women Hair Transplantation

Women and Hair Transplantations

Hair loss, hair thinning, and female pattern baldness may not be widely discussed topics but are still common conditions experienced by women worldwide. There can be various reasons for women to seek hair restoration. Common reasons for women to experience hair loss or thinning can include iron deficiency, excessive stress, menopause, pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune disease, and underlying conditions such as Androgenetic Alopecia.

 

Fortunately, there are several hair transplant treatment options available to women who wish to regrow lost hair. At American Mane Hair Restoration Center, we are proud to offer FUE, Sapphire FUE hair, and DHI transplantation for women seeking a solution to hair loss that is minimally invasive and produces natural-looking results.

What Causes Hair Loss and Baldness in Women?

As is the case with men, the most common cause of hair loss in women is Androgenetic Alopecia, or female pattern baldness (the feminine equivalent of male pattern baldness)

There are also many other causes of hair loss in women, including:
  • Iron deficiency
  • Rapid weight loss or crash dieting
  • Excessive stress
  • Pregnancy
  • Menopause
  • Medication
  • Hormone level changes
  • Autoimmune diseases

Hair Transplants for Women

There are different options available when it comes to female hair transplants, including the following:
  • FUE Hair Transplants
  • DHI Hair Transplants
  • Sapphire FUE Hair Transplants
If you are unfamiliar with the above terms and what they entail, don’t worry, as that’s what we are going to explain below.

FUE method

FUE hair transplantation is one of the most common treatment options for hair restorations. This method harvests grafts more efficiently, safely, and quickly compared to other methods.

 

Using state-of-the-art technology, follicles are automatically separated, harvested, and then stored in environmentally sound containers that are temperature controlled in a solution. This process increases the chance of graft survival for implantation and improves their ability to regrow successfully. Once extraction is completed, microchannels are created in the scalp to assist in hair implantation. The micro-grafts are then implanted along the designed hairline and targeted treatment area for a natural, full appearance.

Sapphire FUE method

Deprived of the FUE method, the Sapphire FUE hair transplantation process is the same as FUE except for how the microchannels are made. In the traditional FUE method, microchannels are made from a steel blade whereas in Sapphire FUE the channels are made from special sapphire blades. These blades are designed to minimize scab formation, speed up the recovery process, and allow for dense packing making thicker, fuller results more achievable in a single session.

DHI method

Direct hair implantation, or DHI, is a new innovative treatment option that is considered a modified version of FUE treatment and provides natural results with no visible scarring.

 

The main difference between FUE and DHI treatment is in the method of implantation. During the procedure, the hair follicles are extracted similarly to the FUE treatment, but instead of being placed in a solution until ready, the hair follicles are directly implanted into the recipient area. Using a pen-shaped tool, known as an implanter or Choi pen, the hair follicles can be directly implanted after harvesting without needing to manually make microchannels.
