Tackle Female Hair Loss at Virginia Surgical Center
Everyone wants a lush head of hair. Unfortunately, premature hair loss is a reality for many people in McLean, VA, and beyond. When most of us think about “going bald,” we assume this refers to men. However, women can experience hair loss as well. Female hair loss can result in a loss of confidence, and many women look to medical professionals to restore their head of hair. At Virginia Surgical Center, we provide an array of surgical and non-surgical treatments for women and men alike. Female hair loss may, at times, be inevitable, but it doesn’t have to affect your appearance permanently. Learn more about how we can help you get your hair back.
Explore Hair Transplant Procedures for Women
Hair transplants can be effective for individuals of any gender. Our team is proud to provide several options for you. With the help of our professional medical team, you’ll choose the procedure that best fits your goals and needs. Here’s a brief overview of each surgical and non-surgical hair loss treatment we perform:
- Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT): This hair transplant procedure begins with removing a strip of skin from an unnoticeable spot on the head. We then use hair grafting to remove follicular units and finish with placing the grafts into incisions on the head. We generally use local anesthesia for FUT, which makes the procedure mostly painless.
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): The FUE procedure utilizes specialized equipment to extract each follicular unit one at a time. We then transplant a follicular unit graft where you’d like your hair to be thicker. This operation tends to be longer than other options, and patients must first undergo a test to ensure it will be effective.
- Trichophytic Donor Closure Technique: Sometimes, FUT procedures can leave behind scarring. Fortunately, we utilize this advanced operation for covering up donor scars. This surgery is typically used for patients who prefer short hair that may not cover scars by itself.
- Laser Tek 12000: Female hair loss in your 40s can be combatted with laser hair therapy. This non-surgical procedure provides energy to the cells, increasing circulation, and your ability to absorb nutrients. Clients typically start to see improvement in their hair loss between three and six weeks after the procedure.
- Alternative Hair Loss Therapies: Surgery isn’t right for everyone. If you’re not a candidate for a surgical procedure or you don’t feel comfortable with the operation, consider an alternative hair loss therapy. Our team can walk you through your options and recommend the best therapy for your circumstances.
