Common Reasons For Hair Loss In Females

What causes female hair loss? There are a variety of causes of hair loss in women that can trigger temporary or permanent hair loss, including hormonal changes due to puberty, pregnancy, childbirth, perimenopause and menopause. To best treat hair loss in women, it is recommended the cause of the hair loss is diagnosed before treatment begins. Here are several things that influence women hair loss.

  • Hormone levels: for example, pregnancy and menopause are often associated with hair loss
  • Genetics: studies indicate hereditary connection to pattern baldness
  • High stress: significant physical/emotional stress has been linked to hair loss
  • Diet: deficiencies in nutrients can affect scalp and hair health
  • Vitamin deficiency: low levels of certain vitamins can influence hair loss
  • Medications: hair loss can be a rare medication side effect, however a variety of drugs may contribute, including oral birth control
  • Aging: women over 40 tend to experience increased hair loss
  • Hairstyle: for example, chemical hair treatments and hairstyles may contribute to hair loss (e.g., temple hair loss female) and hair trauma

Whether you are experiencing female pattern hair loss, alopecia, or progressive hair thinning, Este Medical in Turkey can help you with a hair and scalp assessment to determine the cause of your hair loss, as well as the most beneficial and effective hair treatment to restore hair volume and replenish damaged hair.

What Is Female Pattern Hair Loss?

There are several types of hair loss females can experience, the most common one is female pattern hair loss, or androgenetic alopecia. This type of female hair loss starts around the top of the head with progressive hair thinning. It usually starts along the center hair part with visible thinning, and over time the scalp becomes more visible, as there is less hair volume.

Androgenetic alopecia is a hereditary condition that is influenced by aging and hormone changes. Onset tends to be linked to hormonal changes in menopause, so women in their midlife, in their 40s and 50s, are most impacted by this type of hair loss. For instance, as women age their hormone levels play a role in hair loss during menopause as estrogen and progesterone levels drop; hair becomes finer and thinner as follicles shrink, hair grows more slowly and falls out more frequently. Eventually the follicles do not grow new hair.

Can Women Go Bald? Signs and Symptoms of Hair Loss in Females

How do you know if you have female pattern baldness? We recommend you book an Este Medical hair loss assessment, as leaving it untreated may result in further hair loss. Signs and symptoms of hair loss may include:
  • Excessive hair loss, clumps of hair falling out
  • Scalp becoming more visible
  • Thinning hair on top of head
  • Patches of hair missing
  • Thinning hair that spreads from the center hair part
  • Lots of broken hairs in bunches

It is helpful to remember that a small amount of hair loss is normal, but if you are concerned, or seeing significant hair loss, then you should book a hair loss consultation (re: hair loss women treatment) to determine the type of hair loss you are experiencing and what procedure is most suitable for you. Contact us to discuss normal hair loss per day female results if you are unsure about your rate of hair loss.

Can A Hair Loss Treatment For Women Help Me?

Yes, hair loss treatments are highly effective at improving scalp health and stimulating healthy hair growth. When women experience visible hair loss it can be traumatic and stressful, with a negative effect on wellbeing and self-esteem. For women it can be harder to explain hair loss and even embarrassing to seek clinical treatment.

A professional hair loss treatment in Turkey will most definitely help you, as advances in hair loss therapy, technology, and delicate transplant surgery make it possible to retain the hair you have, regrow it, and replace hair follicles to restore hair growth in problem areas like along the center part or temples.  

Este Medical has several successful hair loss Turkey treatments available for females. Here are popular and proven hair and scalp treatments for you to consider.

This regrowth treatment is best for treating thinning hair and female pattern hair loss. Laser therapy stimulates hair follicles and their natural growth cycle. This treatment has a 95% success rate, and you can see results in about four months. This is an excellent treatment to replenish the scalp with new hair growth.

This microinjection treatment targets the mesoderm, below the scalp's surface, to stop hair loss and stimulate healthy hair regrowth. It is especially effective when combined with a PRP scalp treatment (i.e., platelet-rich plasma therapy). Mesotherapy combined with PRP is very effective at slowing hair loss and treating alopecia.

The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant is Este Medical Group’s most popular hair loss treatment. In just five months clients experience visible hair growth (i.e., on average 50% hair growth). And within a year most transplant recipients will experience up to 100% hair growth. A FUE hair loss treatment restores hair by replacing old follicles with new follicles that are still able to grow hair. It is an amazingly successful treatment for extreme hair loss.

A major drawback for women considering a hair transplant procedure is cutting or shaving their hair. Many women would like to keep their hair treatments private. In that case Este Medical in Turkey has hair loss procedures that don’t require head shaving or hair cutting. If you are interested in finding out more about these procedures take a look at the following hair loss treatments popular with women.

For the most successful results we recommend you have a hair loss specialist consultation to discuss your treatment expectations, as well as your hairstyle and beauty goals.

Severe stress (telogen effluvium)

Related stress hair loss female outcomes can result from extreme physical strain or emotional shock, this is known as telogen effluvium. Stress-related hair loss usually starts about 3 months after a traumatic experience. Signs to look for include: increased hair shedding, thinning hair, and patches of missing hair. Risk factors may include: dramatic weight loss, surgery, illness, childbirth, as well as mental illness, and intense psychological stress (e.g., death of a loved one).

Diffuse hair loss (chronic telogen effluvium)

Chronic telogen effluvium is a more persistent and prolonged type of hair loss which tends to fluctuate over several years (it generally affects the entire scalp). Severe stress, anemia, thyroid problems, and medication side effects are all examples of health-related conditions which may trigger, as well as perpetuate, this type of hair loss. The causes are often hard to identify, but it is a treatable condition.

Alopecia areata

Alopecia areata is immune system related, it causes patchy hair loss and circular bald patches. This condition causes cells in your immune system to surround and attack your hair follicles. It is not considered a serious medical condition, but it most likely will result in anxiety and mental stress about personal appearance and health. Este Medical hair growth treatments are available to help with this type of hair loss.

Traction Alopecia

This type of hair loss is often caused by repeated trauma and damage to hair follicles, and from pulling hair back into tight hairstyles that put undue tension on the hair roots. When hair is pulled from the roots to make a hairstyle it may cause long-term damage (e.g., hair glue, extensions, tight ponytails and braids…). Hair loss can occur around the hairline and temples. This type of hair loss is treatable.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS is a common hormone disorder that can cause hair thinning and hair loss (also known as female pattern hair loss). Females experiencing PCOS produce higher levels of androgens (e.g., dihydrotestosterone); this hormone imbalance affects hair follicles by shrinking and shortening the hair, which makes it easier to fall out, as well as hard to regrow. The good news with female pattern baldness is that the hair follicle stays alive, so there's an opportunity to stimulate hair growth with certain hair loss treatments.
