Hair loss is one of the most detrimental aesthetic problems faced by men and women because it deeply affects self-esteem and personal comfort in various situations. Over the years, new techniques have been developed to remedy thinning hair and balding in men, and now women can also achieve relief from this condition. At Connecticut Surgical Arts we offer the most advanced treatments for hair loss, such as micrograft hair transplant procedures and PRP therapy.
What Causes Hair Loss in Men and Women?
Men and women share some common reasons for hair loss, such as:
- Side effects of medications
- Hormonal changes
- Damage due to hair treatments, such as color processing
- Secondary effects of certain medical conditions
In many cases, these types of hair loss resolve by treating the underlying cause, such as changing medications, modifying lifestyle and rebalancing hormones. Hair loss that is linked to one’s family history and genetics presents a unique challenge, as men and women have little control over these factors.
What Type of Hair Loss Can Be Treated with Hair Restoration?
Our hair loss treatments are effective for thinning and balding that is caused by androgenic alopecia, meaning hair loss that is caused by changes to certain hormones in the body. These hormones regulate the hair growth cycle and viability of hair shafts. Although androgenic alopecia affects both men and women, it is often referred to as “male pattern baldness.”
How Does Androgenic Alopecia Cause Hair Loss in Men and Women?
Men and women have distinct patterns in which they lose hair that is caused by androgenic alopecia. In men, hair loss starts at the temples or with a receding hairline. The crown of the scalp may lose hair next. The result is a hair loss pattern that looks like the letter “M.” Women who are affected by androgenic alopecia typically notice a general thinning of the hair that is most noticeable at the point where she parts her hair. Over time, women can lose the most significant amount of hair in the crown area.
What are My Options for Hair Restoration?
We offer two proven solutions for hair loss in men and women. Our micrograft hair transplant is an innovative alternative to traditional strip grafting, a technique that relies on larger swaths of scalp being removed to extract the hair grafts. The micrograft hair transplant uses robotics and a sophisticated system to carefully and precisely extract smaller grafts and implant them into the treatment area to match the natural growth pattern. This technique minimizes downtime and produces far superior natural-looking results.
The micrograft hair transplant procedure can be combined with PRP therapy, a treatment that introduces growth factors from your own blood to enhance hair growth and improve the viability of the grafts.
