Androgenetic alopecia is a medical term for hair loss or female pattern baldness, which affects a large number of women. Female pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss in women, being characterised as hair loss and thinning that begins from the scalp and extends outwards. It can develop at any age and, while it usually progresses slowly, it can also come in bursts.
Elucell has an effective alopecia treatment for women in the form of our platelet rich plasma hair treatment. By drawing blood from the patient, isolating and then injecting the plasma into affected areas of the scalp, we can effectively promote hair growth and strengthen affected follicles.
What is the prognosis/outlook for women with alopecia?
Alopecia can be a distressing experience for women, affecting their self-esteem. However, while there is no cure, there are many treatment options available that can prevent additional hair loss as well as potentially regrow any lost hair. The effectiveness of treatment depends on various factors such as how early the alopecia is diagnosed, the treatment being used and the amount of hair loss that is being treated.
What causes alopecia in women?
Alopecia is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the hair follicles. There are many factors that exacerbate alopecia, from genetic factors such as hereditary conditions or hormone imbalances to stress to pre-existing medical conditions to current medications to diet.
What are the signs of alopecia in women?
There are many different signs of alopecia present in women, the most obvious of which being loss of hair atop the head. Other signs include round or oval patches of hair loss atop the scalp, band-shaped hair loss on the sides and lower back of the scalp, loss of eyelashes, widespread hair loss all over the body, etc.
Can your hair grow back from alopecia?
Alopecia can be demoralising, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be permanent. Many people experience different levels of hair loss when they have alopecia, but there is always a possibility that the missing hair can be regrown. As previously mentioned, alopecia is easier to treat the earlier it is diagnosed, and there are a wealth of treatment options available.
Can women reverse alopecia?
Alopecia is not a curable condition. However, with the right form of treatment, you can prevent further hair loss, regrow hairs in affected areas, and even strengthen the regrowing hair. That’s why we suggest that you organise a free consultation with our qualified medical professionals at the first signs of hair loss. The earlier you visit us, the sooner we can determine whether or not our alopecia treatment for women is the right treatment for you.
What is the best treatment for alopecia?
Strictly speaking, it would be irresponsible to claim that any singular alopecia treatment is the best. This is because different treatments work for different people, and it is important for medical professionals to accurately diagnose their patients so that the correct treatment can be administered.
Nonetheless, at Elucell we want our PRP treatment to be as exemplary as it possibly can be. When it comes to our PRP hair treatment procedure, there is no surgery involved, and the recovery process is minimal. Our PRP alopecia treatment for women is demonstrably effective, and our qualified medical professionals take every measure to ensure the experience is as comfortable and painless as possible.
Does alopecia treatment for women work for hair loss?
Patients who experience hair loss are shown to achieve noticeable results with Elucell’s alopecia treatment. You will notice an increase in hair thickness and a decrease in hair loss after your first PRP alopecia treatment for women session.
These weeks turn into months, and the follicle count per area grows. As a result, the hair that grows is of higher quality. Trichoscan, a sophisticated piece of technology specifically designed to monitor hair loss, is used to monitor your scalp so we know if your treatment is working.
Does alopecia treatment for women thicken hair?
The treatment of alopecia for women offers significantly more than just regrowth of hair. Injections of platelet rich plasma actually strengthen your hair roots and repair damaged hair follicles by stimulating the dermal papilla cells. In addition to thickening and enhancing the look of your hair, the hair is stronger and less prone to breakage.
