One of the leading reasons people go for hair restoration treatment is hair loss. For most women thinning hair can be an absolute nightmare as most consider it an integral part of feminine beauty. Around half the female population around the globe suffer from hair loss due to a variety of physiological and psychological reasons.

The good news is hair restoration for women is the fastest and most efficient way to replace your lost hair if you don’t have the time and patience to opt for other remedies.

Hair Restoration for Women: What Is It?

Hair restoration, or hair transplant treatment, is a process of hair restoration that uses hair from a person’s own scalp or other parts of the body as a replacement to the missing hair on the scalp. Typically, this hair is taken from the back of the head but can be taken from other parts of the body as well such as the arm. There are two types of hair transplants that are offered commercially all over the globe:

  •         Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT): In this technique, a strip of the scalp is removed from the back of your skull and divided into micro-units called grafts which are then transplanted to the part of the skull where hair has thinned out.
  •         Follicular Unit extraction (FUE): In this technique, hair is first shaved from a particular section at the back of your skull. Then, individual follicles are removed and transplanted into the parts of your skull where hair has thinned. This is the less painful process of the two.

The procedure can take anywhere between a few hours to a few days based on how extensive the work is. Recovery can also take anywhere between a couple of days to a few weeks.

Does Hair Restoration for Women Actually Work?

Hair transplants have a higher success rate than any other cosmetic or non-cosmetic hair restoration treatment. After the procedure, you’ll see visible results within two to three months. Hair transplantation treatments can ensure up to 80 percent hair regrowth which is more than what any other form of hair restoration treatment on the market offers.

The success rates of hair transplant treatments can be further improved if used in conjunction with other treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy with FUE transplants, which can speed up the hair regrowth rate by up to 75 percent in six months. Explore all the options with a hair treatment specialist before making your decision.

Hair transplant treatments aren’t permanent, and often need follow-up transplants over a considerable period of time to achieve the desired natural. But at the very least, you can count on the procedure to last three to four years. The length and timing of the follow-up transplants can vary from person to person, so make sure to consult with your doctor.
