What Causes Hair Loss in Women?
It is not just men who face hair loss. In women, hair loss can be caused by many factors, including genetic, hormonal, and medical conditions. One of the most common hair loss in women causes is female pattern baldness, a hereditary condition very similar to male pattern baldness, although hair loss occurs in a different pattern. Female pattern hair loss usually occurs along the top of the head, especially at the part, and gets worse during menopause.
During menopause and afterward, hair becomes thinner as hair follicles shrink. This makes hair grow more slowly and fall out very easily.
Other possible causes of female hair loss can include:
- Stress or shock. Having a child, a serious illness, surgery, or significant weight loss can cause telogen effluvium, a type of temporary hair loss.
- Hair style. If your hair is frequently pulled in a tight hair style like braids or corn rows, it can cause permanent damage to the hair follicles and hair loss in a condition called traction alopecia.
- Radiation, chemotherapy, and some medications can cause anagen effluvium, a type of hair loss that may be permanent when hair follicles are damaged.
- Alopecia areata, an autoimmune skin disorder that usually isn’t permanent.

What Is LaserCap™?
LaserCap™ is a safe and non-invasive form of laser hair therapy that helps treat mild to moderate hair loss and thinning. This treatment uses low level light therapy (LLLT) to stimulate hair follicles and produce stronger growth to restore hair thickness to the crown and top of the head.
What Is Viviscal™?
Viviscal™ is a hair regrowth supplement that has been used by women for decades to promote fuller and thicker hair growth. Viviscal™ uses clinically studied active ingredients and a two-part system to encourage healthier hair growth by prolonging the hair’s growth stage instead of the other stages.
Viviscal™ would not produce short-term results, but it can help regrow and improve the quality of hair over a period of months. Most women see results from Viviscal after six months. Viviscal™ hair supplements can be combined with other hair loss treatments for even better results.
What Is the NeoGraft® FUE Hair Transplant Procedure?
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplantation involves removing hair follicles either individually or in very small groups. By harvesting and transplanting hair follicles in small numbers, we are able to reduce the discomfort, recovery period and the various risks associated with hair transplantation.
The FUE approach to hair transplantation is incredibly meticulous and requires extensive training. Dr. Bawa has specialized in this technique in order to provide patients with optimal results through hair transplantation. However, as with many hair restoration techniques, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve your desired results. We use the NeoGraft® system during hair transplantation surgery to restore full and permanent hair growth to bald and thinning areas of the scalp with dramatic results.
What Is PRFM for Hair Loss?
PRFM is a breakthrough treatment option for hair loss that uses growth factors in your own blood. PRFM (platelet-rich fibrin matrix) uses the same technology of PRP therapy but goes a step further. After platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is isolated from your blood, it’s transformed into PRFM, which has a scaffold that allows it to remain in the treatment area for longer and more effective results. By concentrating growth factors in areas of hair loss, PRFM can prompt the body to repair damaged hair follicles and make new, healthy tissue to support stronger hair growth.
Hair loss can be harder on women than men, as it isn’t as socially acceptable and many people are unaware how common hair loss can be among women. If you are bothered by thinning hair or hair loss, Bawa Medical can help with tailored treatment options designed to restore thick, natural hair.
