At Excellence Clinic we understand that hair loss in women needs to be treated with different approach than hair loss in men and it requires a different approach when considering hair and eyebrow restoration in women. The patterns of manifestation of hair loss in women are different than in men. The hair loss in women is more diffuse and it can occur at any age. In men genetics plays a major role whereas in women underlying conditions are more influential in thinning of hair.
It can be a devastating experience in women to suffer from hair loss but the good news is, cure can be achieved with both medical and surgical approach. This is a confirmed fact by International society of Hair Restoration surgery.
In women a thorough disease specific workup and evaluation of underlying condition is necessary when treating hair loss.

Women usually notice hair loss during menopause that results in reduced density of hair usually in the middle of the scalp that thins laterally. The hair is many times miniaturized due to longer resting telogen phase. Hair Loss is seldom seen in frontal hairline.

Hair Transplant used to involve a painful, tedious surgery with a long recovery period, however modern technology offers an extremely safe and effective solution with the FUE hair transplant system. This incredible FUE hair transplant method restores a client’s self-esteem and natural hair growth, with minimal discomfort at the same time.
