What Is Female Hair Loss?
Many people think of balding or thinning hair as a "male" problem, but you might be surprised to learn that 40% of individuals suffering from hair loss are female. Like men, women inherit androgenetic alopecia, also known as female pattern hair loss. Genetic alopecia in females is brought on by a similar response to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which causes male baldness. Women harbor low levels of the testosterone receptor DHT, and when these hormones become out of balance, the hair follicles may not function optimally, resulting in thinning hair. In other cases, women who experience a life-changing event (such as pregnancy or menopause) can be subjected to substantial quantities of hair falling out due to stress and hormonal changes. Dr. Jonathan Cannella offers many options to revive thinning hair based on each person's needs. If you want to learn more about the causes of hair loss and your options for treatment, we welcome you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cannella at DuBois Hair Restoration in DuBois, PA.
What Are the Treatment Options for Female Hair Loss?
After reviewing your medical details (including daily habits and family history) and examining your hair and scalp, Dr. Cannella will go over your treatment options. If you have thinning hair or are in the early stages of baldness, a nonsurgical treatment, like PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or low-level laser therapy, may be recommended. While oral medications are commonly suggested for men, they tend to cause more complications in women and are therefore usually not recommended for female patients.
If you are experiencing widespread hair loss or thinning, you might consider minimally invasive hair restoration surgery using FUE (follicular unit extraction) or FUT (follicular unit transplantation) to achieve a more natural look. In your consultation, Dr. Cannella will create your treatment plan and tell you what you can expect throughout the process.

Dr. labrasca takes the time to explain and really cares about what the patient wants. He is doing my breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. He and his staff makes me feel like they care. I would not go to another plastic surgeon.
