Localized (regional)

Pattern (male type)
 

  1. Diffuse (widespread): It is characterized by diffuse thinning of the entire scalp while preserving the frontal hairline.

  2. Localized (regional): It is a form of hair loss in which the hair dividing line in the frontal mid-area widens without diffuse hair loss.

  3. Pattern (male type): Bilateral (bitemporal) hair retraction from the forehead line to the sides

Ways to prevent hair loss in women

In this sense, hair loss can be prevented through medical treatments, but also through personal care and a healthy diet. Before deciding on the treatment of hair loss in women, it is necessary to look at the type and cause of the hair loss.

This is only possible with an accurate diagnosis by a specialist doctor. However, determining whether the hair loss is temporary or permanent and the course of the hair loss will also help determine a course of treatment.

 

Among the main methods of treatment recommended for women;

 

Hair Transplantation: Hair transplantation, which provides a permanent solution to hair loss, is the process of extracting hair follicles that are resistant to hair loss from the donor area (neck) and transplanting them to the areas that are needed.

This procedure, performed with minimally invasive methods, gives successful results in women with permanent hair loss if the donor area is sufficient for transplantation. Hair transplant is the most preferred method, especially for women with pattern or regional hair loss.

 

Minoxidil: Minoxidil topical solution is the only androgen independent treatment method approved by the FDA. Minoxidil, applied topically to the scalp, shows effects that can slow and stop hair loss. The use of the 2% form is recommended for women.

 

PRP: PRP therapy is a non-surgical option that provides protective and restorative support to existing hair care procedures. It is based on the principle of taking some blood from the person's body, separating the plasma from the blood by centrifugation and returning it to the body by injection.

 

Hair Mesotherapy: Mesotherapy is the process of administering pharmacological drugs in mixtures regionally in small doses into the skin using special needles and special techniques. It is a preferred method to slow down hair loss and revitalize hair.

Healthy Diet: Along with the consumption of protein rich foods such as meat, fish, eggs, whole grains, the intake of biotin, magnesium, zinc, selenium and vitamins A, E, C, B6 contained in spinach, bananas, green leafy vegetables will help maintain the hair strengthen and protect by nourishing the scalp.

 

One in four women faces the problem of hair loss. This number can be as high as two in four women in menopause.

 

About 40% of women with hair loss problems have female pattern hair loss, caused by genetic factors.

 

While there are about 30 different factors that can cause hair loss in women, it is only some of these factors that affect the majority of women.

 

Hair thinning occurs in 10% of premenopausal women and more than 50% of women over 65 years of age.

 

While 84% of women with hair loss problems suffer from low self-esteem and 34% suffer from depression, 94% find their hair loss problem less socially acceptable than men.

 

Approximately 14.7% of hair transplant recipients worldwide are women.
