Female Pattern Hair Loss
Losing your hair as a woman, especially if you’re young or at a vulnerable time in your life, can badly affect your confidence.
There are different pattern types of hair loss. It can take the form of “thinning” or involve a total loss of hair. It can be gradual or sudden; it can affect the old and the young.
Most commonly it affects women after the age of 40 but some younger women also get this type of hair loss. It is usually progressive if not treated in the earlier stages.
Whatever stage of hair loss you are in, we here at NOVUS are dedicated to helping you regain your confidence and self-esteem with our state of the art treatments
Reasons For Hair Loss In Women
There are many reasons why women lose hair. The most common reason is genetics. Other factors include stress, pregnancy, severe dieting, lack of vitamins and essential nutrients due to poor intake, hormonal, thyroid and other autoimmune conditions.
Treatments For FPHL
There are various medications available to treat FPHL. Minoxidil is an approved non –prescription medication which is used at either 2% or 5% dosages. The benefit is only temporary, however, and hair loss resumes after you have stopped taking the drug. This drug should be avoided during pregnancy.
This is the only permanent treatment option available. The outcome depends on the pattern and severity of hair loss and donor area density. It is best to see the hair transplant surgeon for a full analysis of what can be achieved.
The laser therapy may be helpful but it’s not permanent. The laser therapy stimulates hair growth.
The platelet rich plasma therapy can stimulate hair growth and the response to treatment varies for each patient.

“I had been researching the FUE procedure for some time & finally decided to take the plunge & book a consultation, I don’t know why I waited so long, Dr Kunnure & his team were excellent & really took time to ensure I got the best out of the operation, the day was long but dare I say fun! With little pain & plenty of comfort breaks, if I needed them, I would recommend the team at Novus to anybody considering a hair transplant.”
