Hair implants for women: how to solve female alopecia

Hair loss medical treatment

One of the most important aesthetic features for many women is their hair. When there is more hair loss than normal many women opt for implants to bring their hair back to life.

At Nordetia, we are going to explain everything that you need to know about hair implants for women.

Reasons behind female hair loss

Firstly, let’s take a look at the causes of female hair loss:

Androgenetic alopecia

This refers to genetic hair loss. It is caused by ageing but does not result in hair loss around the scalp, like with men, instead it appears to make the hair thinner.

Hormonal factors

It is common for certain hormonal changes to result in hair loss. For example, it can occur after pregnancy.

Illness and medication

Certain conditions, such as an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism), can cause there to be more hair loss than usual. There are also some medications which can cause hair loss, for example, some contraceptives or certain antidepressants, among others.

Poor diet

Having a poor diet which lacks in certain nutrients can also cause hair loss. It occurs when there is a lack of iron which causes anaemia.

Stress

It is common to notice irregular hair loss after going through stressful situations.

Hairstyles

Excessive tight hairstyles which pull on the hair, such as ponytails, can cause hair loss. Nevertheless, this is only usually the case when the hairstyle is used on a highly regular basis, and normally occurs when there are also other contributing factors to the hair loss.

Hair treatments

Hair treatments such as perms can result in more hair loss, due to the aggressive chemical ingredients involved with these treatments.

FUE hair transplant

The most advanced treatment around today for hair transplants is the FUE technique (Follicular Unit Extraction). It consists of extracting the hair follicle by follicle from the patient’s donor area, following an anaesthetic, then making a series of incisions in the transplant area. Finally, the transplant is made, follicle by follicle.

It is a minimally invasive outpatient treatment which uses local anaesthetic. Patients enjoy a quick and painless recovery, meaning they can get back to their normal routines almost straight away.

Hair mesotherapy

Hair mesotherapy is a cutaneous transdermal therapy, which stimulates the stem cells of the bulb and activates growth. It results in more hair and stronger hair being grown.

It is done using asepsis and local anaesthetic, making small injections into the scalp with a small needle, administering capillary vitamins, growth elements, and medication such as Dutasteride, etc.

Capiled Photolaser Technology

Capiled Photolaser Technology causes capillary photostimulation, revitalising weaker hair follicles and stimulating blood flow in the area. 

This treatment involves using LED light which penetrates the skin, producing a biochemical reaction causing the body’s cells to reactivate, including the hair follicles.

Four Tips to consider following treatment

In the case of the Capiled Photolaser Technology treatment and the Hair Mesotherapy treatment, there are no specific recommendations that need to be followed after treatment. Patients can get back to their regular lives straight away.

However, the FUE treatment does require certain steps to be followed after treatment,  these usually include:

  1. Avoid the beach, pool, and saunas.
  2. Do not wear helmets or hats.
  3. No sun exposure.
  4. No chemicals.

These steps need to be followed for at least one month after treatment.
