Hair Loss Restoration for Women in Houston, TX

It’s normal for women to lose 50-100 hairs per day. But if you’re losing more hair than usual or you notice thinning in some areas, something else might be going on.

Stress, hormonal changes, and illness can all cause hair loss in women, but the most common cause is female pattern hair loss (alopecia). Unlike hair loss in men, women do not usually become totally bald. Instead, they tend to lose hair in certain areas. Female hair loss can occur in a variety of patterns, including:

  • ● Hair loss all over the scalp
  • ● Decreased hair density, coverage, and volume
  • ● Widening of the central hairline
  • ● Receding hairline

Hair loss can be particularly devastating for women because it’s not expected or socially acceptable. Thinning hair and bald spots can severely impact a woman’s self-esteem, well-being, and quality of life. If you’re struggling with hair loss, you have options.

What Causes Hair Loss in Women?

The main cause of hair loss is the same for women and men: androgenetic alopecia, also called male or female pattern baldness. For men, hair loss usually starts above the temples and recedes into a characteristic “M” shape. Women tend to have gradual thinning that starts at the part line and expands outward. But unlike in men, a woman’s hairline rarely recedes, and it’s rare for women to become totally bald.

Most women will experience some degree of female pattern hair loss during their lives. It usually starts around menopause due to hormonal changes. But it can start earlier, especially during pregnancy, or well into a woman’s senior years.

Hereditary pattern baldness isn’t the only reason women experience hair loss. Other causes include:

  • ● Stress
  • ● Vitamin or mineral deficiencies
  • ● Hormonal changes after pregnancy or menopause
  • ● Anemia
  • ● Thyroid conditions
  • ● Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • ● Skin conditions
  • ● Discontinuation of hormonal birth control

These conditions can cause temporary hair “shedding,” and your hair may eventually grow back. But regardless of the cause, if you notice you’re losing more hair than usual or that your hair is thinning in some areas, you should see a female hair restoration doctor in Houston.

Treatments for Female Hair Loss

Women have several surgical and nonsurgical options for hair loss restoration. Which treatment is best for you will depend on the cause and severity of your hair loss. Aesthetic Surgery Institute offers several options for women’s hair restoration in Houston, including:

  • ● Surgical hair restoration: Advanced hair restoration techniques like follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE) involve transplanting hair from thicker areas in the back of the head to thinner areas in the front or top of the head. A strip of hair or individual follicles are harvested and placed precisely where they are needed.
  • ● PRP therapy: For women with thinning hair, injections of platelet-rich plasma into the scalp may help stimulate hair growth. PRP keeps hair follicles in the active growing phase, which can create thicker looking hair and better coverage.
  • ● Low-level laser therapy: Also called red light therapy or cold laser therapy, this procedure uses low-dose laser treatments to invigorate the scalp and stimulate hair growth. Laser therapy is safe, noninvasive, and painless, but it doesn’t work for everyone. Dr. Do will let you know whether this may be a good option for you.
  • ● Topical minoxidil: More commonly known as ROGAINE®, minoxidil is a topical hair restoration treatment that can treat hair loss in women. It can produce some new growth of fine hair, but it won’t restore the full density of lost hair. Minoxidil produces results slowly (6-12 months) and requires ongoing treatments. For these reasons, Dr. Do generally doesn’t recommend this option for patients with more severe hair loss.

If you are a woman considering hair restoration, make sure the doctor you choose is board certified and has the right skills and experience—especially if you are considering surgical hair restoration in Houston.  

How Much Does Women’s Hair Restoration in Houston Cost?

The cost of hair restoration can vary significantly depending on whether you need a surgical procedure or a nonsurgical option. We base the cost of surgical hair restoration on how many hair grafts you need.

During your consultation, Dr. Do will be better able to determine the cost of any procedures you need and will create a personalized plan just for you.

We believe hair restoration treatment should be available to every woman who wants it. We offer financing options to make hair restoration more accessible.
