About 40 percent of women can experience hair loss and thinning by the time they’re 50. In Women, the thinning usually starts at the part line, and they may develop sparse areas at the temple. PRP injections and microneedling can be an effective natural solution for women experiencing hair loss and thinning.

Women experience androgenetic alopecia, which can be considered the same condition that causes male pattern baldness. It’s a genetic trait that is passed on through generations. Hormones can play a role in thinning hair. Because of this, many women may experience hair loss after menopause.
The main culprit of female hair thinning and loss can be due to the growing phase decelerating. As the hair falls out, it can take longer for new strands to grow. Most women lose up to 100 hairs a day. However, women with female pattern balding can lose more than that. If the follicles can’t keep up, new hairs may not be able to fill in the empty spots as quickly.
Plus, this condition can cause the hair follicles to shrink. The strands that do grow back are usually thinner and lighter than normal.
Hormones aren’t always to blame for hair loss and thinning women. Other factors that may affect female hair loss include:
Female pattern baldness looks different than thinning hair in men. In males, the hair typically recedes from the front, creating bald patches that extend backward from the temples. A bald spot can also develop at the top of the head, extending into a larger bare patch.
In women, the thinning starts at the part line. Women usually don’t get receding hairlines, although they may develop sparse areas at the temples. Females can get bare patches on the tops of their heads, but they seldom go completely bald.
What to Do About Female Hair Loss and Thinning
If you notice that your hair is getting thinner or you can see your scalp in areas that used to be covered, you may consider contacting a dermatologist or hair loss clinic.
PRP therapy, which involves PRP injections and microneedling is a non-surgical option that can help stimulate and regrow hair follicles.
The hair regrowth treatments for female pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) are generally the same for men and women. With pattern baldness, female hair loss and thinning are due to hair follicle shrinking. The objective of hair loss treatments should be to improve blood flow to the hair follicles for optimal hair regrowth results.
Our hair loss clinic offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair loss treatments that include a hair health check and plasma injection into the scalp to reverse hair loss in women. Our hair loss specialist draws blood during PRP therapy and separates the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells using a centrifuge.
Then, we inject the plasma into the scalp’s affected areas, using a technique called micro-needling. The platelets in the plasma improve blood flow to the follicles, stimulate hair growth, and prolong the hair strains’ growth cycle.
PRP therapy uses the body’s own platelets, and it is a natural and non-invasive alternative to hair transplantation surgery. When it comes to reversing thinning hair, women’s hair loss, and female hair regrowth, PRP is a safe treatment, and you can expect to see results within a few weeks.
