What causes hair loss?
Female hair loss can be instigated by a number of factors. The front runner on the lost is known as Androgenic Alopecia. It is a genetic problem which affects both men and women. Statistics point out that 8 out of 10 people will come face to face with this problem sooner or later in life.
There are number of medications that can provoke hair loss. A recent life changing event such as a surgery or pregnancy too can cause hair to shed in a hurry. Stress and trauma have also been found of risk factors for female hair loss. Other issues such as hypothyroidism and lack of essential nutrients in diet cannot be ruled out either.
How to Fix?
Getting a hair transplant is the only long term solution that works. For women in Dubai, there are a number of hair transplant options that are available.
Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)
It is more commonly known as the strip method due to the nature of the procedure. Hair Follicles for transplant are collected from the back of the head by cutting a horizontal strip of scalp. These follicles are then dissected into individual follicular units under a stereo microscope. They are then grafted at the recipient site by the surgeon.
The procedure does leave a scar at the donor site which is easily covered by the hair. Certain precautions need to be taken after the surgery. New hairs grow completely in about 12 months’ time.
The latest hair transplant technique, FUE resorts to punching hair follicles out with a pneumatic punch. It is a faster and more effective procedure due to the improved follicle extraction process. The rest of the procedure is same as FUT. There are no linear scars once the procedure is done. The downtime and precautions after surgery are far less than the strip method.
