Hair is an especially important aspect of a woman’s appearance, being considered a symbol of femininity and beauty in a great number of cultures. Unfortunately, women can also present certain forms of alopecia, commonly known as hair loss or balding. The highly trained medical experts of Renew Skin & Health Clinic now provide a number of hair loss treatments for women designed to correct the particular effects of female alopecia, including non-surgical hair transplant, follicular unit transplantation surgery and follicular unit extraction surgery.
Follicular unit transplantation surgery, or FUT hair surgery, and follicular unit extraction surgery, or FUE hair surgery, are innovative hair transplant techniques that have allowed a great number of people to enjoy natural hair regrowth. These procedures involve removing naturally occurring follicular units from a stable donor area, either individually of by strip-harvesting, and transplanting them to the recipient area, or the area of the scalp that has been affected by alopecia. It is very important to note that, because surgical hair transplant is based on the principle of donor domination, referring to the fact that the follicular unit will continue to behave on the recipient area as it did while still on the donor area, applying this technique to women can become rather complicated. This is mainly due to the fact that many women present a particular type of alopecia which implies diffused hair loss rather than concentrated hair loss, as in the case of male pattern baldness. This is not necessarily true of all female patients, surgical hair transplant can be especially useful for women who have lost hair due to scarring, chemical burns or to a fire, women who have lost part of their hair due to mechanical or traction alopecia and women who present a specific pattern of hair loss, similar to male pattern baldness. In any case, a thorough consultation is recommended prior to making any final decisions in order to ensure that you possess all of the relevant information and make the right choice.
