Female Alopecia

Up to 50 percent of all women over the age of 50, but even younger women have at least minimal to do with it. In women with androgenetic alopecia, hair root processes are less clear.

In some cases, however, women with clearing of hair at the apex may actually have underlying hormonal disease (androgenic alopecia). This usually goes hand in hand with so-called "masculinisation marks": Reinforced hair on the upper lip, chin, nipples, belly button, pubic area and on the thighs, as well as acne. Of course, this must be carefully medically clarified.

Characteristic of androgenetic alopecia is the reduction (so-called miniaturization) of the hair follicles, which subsequently form very small, fine and thin hairs. The growth phase (anagen phase) of the follicles is increasingly shortened. This reduction is caused by an increased activity of the androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is formed in the follicle by the 5α-reductase from testosterone.

In addition, the reduced activity of aromatase seems to be important in women. This enzyme converts androgens to estrogens. If their activity is too small, androgen excess occurs. This increase is peripheral, and only a minority of those affected have elevated levels of serum androgen and symptoms of masculinization.

The hair transplantation may be in women with pronounced androgenetic alopecia, but enough donor hair in question. In advance, a detailed consultation on possible complications, costs and achievable success should take place.

More About Female Alopecia

Female alopecia is a medical term for excessive hair loss in women. This disorder is very common around the world, and without due care leads to complete baldness.

Female hair loss can be split into a few types:

  • Scarring alopecia is a condition when the hair follicles are damaged and replaced with connective tissue, so scars appear where hair grew.
  • Androgenic alopeciais caused by high levels of male hormones in the blood.
  • Seborrheic alopecia.Hair loss in women happens due to increased secretion of sebum bysebaceous glands.
  • Diffuse alopecia, with which hair loss occurs evenly all over the head.
  • Focal alopecia, characterized by round foci of alopecia; over time their number increases and they merge together.

Sudden hair loss in women is caused by the following factors:

  • Stress
  • Improper diet
  • Therapywith active chemical agents (chemotherapy)
  • Impaired secretory function or taking drugs containing male hormones (e.g., testosterone propionate)
  • Weakened immunity after exhausting diseases
  • Giving a birth
  • Hereditary tendency to hair loss
  • Tying hair too tight (tight braids, ponytail, etc.)
  • Frequent hair dyeing

What is the cure for female alopecia?

Treatment of baldness in women in many respects depends on the causes. First, to strengthen the hair, it is recommended to improve and diversify diet and add some vitamin and mineral supplements. Then, a complete examination is conducted in order to find out the main cause of the hair loss. If it is associated with hormonal disorder, hormonal therapy can be an option. If baldness has occurred from too tight hairstyles or choosing wrong hair care products, it can be treated withproper care. In cases when therapy does not help, the only cure is hair transplantation.
