Questions and Answers Specific to Women

1. What are the causes of hair loss in women?

Hair loss is caused by factors such as heredity, hormones and age.

Genetic information determines whether hair follicles are sensitive to the hormone DHT (dihydrotestosterone) and other hormones which cause them to “shrink”. This “shrinkage” results in a general and gradual weakening of the hair.

In addition, the aging process can weaken the follicles and consequently the hair itself. This causes thinning of hair and stripping of skin surfaces from it – permanent hair loss.

2. Can women have hair transplants in order to cover signs of various cosmetic interventions?

Yes. Hair transplants can be very effective in covering the visible scars caused by various procedures, including cosmetic interventions and major scalp surgeries.

Modern transplant techniques make it possible for the doctor to place grafts before, after, and even over the tissue of the scar itself.

3. Is eyebrow transplant performed at the “Laser Way” clinic?

Yes. Very fine hair selected from the scalp are transplanted to the eyebrow area to correct cosmetic defects, previous facial damage, or other conditions which may have damaged the eyebrows.

Transplanted hair will grow faster than normal eyebrows.

4. Do I need to consult a doctor before asking for a hair transplant?

It is recommended that you consult your doctor for a complete diagnosis before seeking a hair transplant, because hair loss in women is caused by several factors other than androgenetic alopecia, factors that can damage the newly transplanted hair.

To prepare an appropriate treatment plan, it is important to seek out a dermatologist or a transplant specialist who is trained in the field.
