Female hair loss is less common as compared to male hair loss. However, when it happens, it severely affects appearance and psychological well-being of women, especially if it is frontal temporal recession that can be spotted even from a safe distance. Fortunately, female hair loss treatment is possible. However, early treatment can be a key to stop further hair loss and save valuable hair. Let us discuss how to treat frontal temporal recession in female.
Causes of Temporal Recession in Females
The proper way to treat hair loss in females is to investigate the underlying cause and treat it accordingly. It is very helpful to separate genetic hair loss from the other causes of hair loss in females as the course of treatment heavily depends upon the underlying cause. Here is a list of some of the most common causes of hair loss in females.
- Thyroid disease
- Excessive weight loss due to eating disorders or severe dieting
- Use of certain medication (mostly oral contraceptives, beta-blockers, thyroid drugs, and over dosage of vitamin A)
- Different autoimmune diseases (lupus, Alopecia areata)
A doctor should administer the appropriate blood tests to know the underlying cause and then based on the results of the tests he distinguishes between different types of hair loss.
There are certain medicines available to treat certain types of hair loss in women. However, the results vary from woman to woman. These medicines can help to slow down the hair loss while the underlying cause of hair loss is being treated. However, using medicines alone to treat hair loss sometimes proves to be futile as the hair loss returns back as soon as a person discontinues the treatment and stops taking medicines.
Hair Transplant To Treat Frontal Temporal Recession In Female:
The trend of female hair transplant is increasing rapidly. It is considered that not all women are good candidates of a hair transplant. Here, it is important to understand the concept of hair transplant. A hair transplant extracts hair follicles from the donor area and implants them in the balding area. To qualify as a donor area, the area must have healthy and balding resistant hair. In men, sides and back of the head serve as the donor area. They contain healthy, DHT-resistant hair follicles. However, in women androgenic alopecia usually causes an overall thinning of hair all across their heads. This phenomenon makes them unsuitable for a hair transplant. If weak hairs are extracted and planted at the balding site, they fall very soon. This makes the whole procedure of a transplant useless.
Women can be equally good candidates for a hair transplant given that they have enough donor hair on their heads. In many cases, females experience male-like pattern baldness characterized by thinning hairline and crown, and healthy sides and back of the head. Sometimes the frontal temporal hair loss is due to an injury, a skin disease, a surgery, or continuous traction (Traction Alopecia). In all these cases, they have adequate healthy hair for a transplant to be feasible.
Consulting a qualified and diligent medical doctor or a Trichologist (a doctor who specializes in hair care) is the key to controlling hair loss and regaining the lost hair.
