Hair Restoration Isn't Just for Men

Can you recall the last time you saw a hair loss treatment marketed towards women? Plenty of ladies see dramatic hair thinning and recession as they age, but mainstream beauty media never talks about it.

Ladies, if you are uncomfortable with thinning hair, know that you are not alone. And, you have options just like men do (aside from tattooing, probably). Just take a look at these women who all opted for hair transplants:

The most important thing women should know about hair transplants is that candidacy depends on what caused the hair loss. So, if hair loss is due to a thyroid problem or an auto-immune condition like lupus, a transplant may not be the best choice.  

But on the other hand, if it's the result of inherited hair loss,"the results can be excellent," says Dr. Jack Fisher. "About 15% of my patients are women who have genetic hair loss. The reason it works for these patients is that they have good donor hair."

This is a great read! Women do not have many options for hair thinning and loss. Hair replacement works well and with new technology the scars associated with transplantation is eliminated. Neograft is the best choice for women as they require few grafts, there is no scar and the donor site is well concealed. They can be out in public in a few days! Low level laser treatments can replace grafting when thinning is treated early. Research Neograft and Sunetics G laser to find competent centers offering these treatment options.

I suffered injuries and disfigurement that caused me depression, emotional and physical pain and humiliating appearance. Those injuries are caused because of the surgeon’s reckless conduct. Paul Weiss, my surgeon was required to tell the patient, me, everything that would substantially affect the patient so that I can make informed decisions whether to go ahead with surgery. What constitutes informed consent varies from state to state - Hair Transplant in Pakistan
