Alopecia in women is a problem that is more common than many people think. It consists of excessive hair loss, giving rise to several bald spots in different visible areas of the scalp.
This problem not only affects the physical health of the patient, but also their self-esteem, especially in the case of women. However, today there are successful procedures focused on reducing the impact of this problem and improving appearance.
What is female alopecia?
Alopecia inn women is a pathology that causes hair loss in the most visible areas of the scalp. These areas can be the top or front of the head.
Female pattern baldness is becoming more common. However, the good news is that it rarely progresses to total baldness. It begins with the widening of the front hairline and the thinning of the upper center line. This can also extend to the sides and the crown.
Likewise, it is important to mention that there are also more severe cases where the entire body is affected.
How do I know if I have alopecia?
Female alopecia can appear gradually or suddenly and can affect only the scalp or the entire body.
- Hair loss on the top of the head, ie the line begins to widen.
- Appearance of circular and irregular baldness on the scalp or eyebrows.
- Hair loss only due to a life changing event, such as the sudden loss of a loved one.
- Hair loss all over the body due to some disorder and/or medical treatment.
- Appearance of flaking areas that extend throughout the scalp.

What treatments exist?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
One of the most recommended procedures is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). This is a low cost and successful treatment because it enhances hair growth and stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin.
In other words, PRP consists of extracting the patient’s blood and separating the red and white blood cells, plasma and platelets. Once this is done, plasma and platelets are injected into the scalp to promote hair growth.
Hair transplant is also a great procedure to treat female alopecia. It consists of taking the hair follicles from a more resistant area of the head, and transplanting them to the balding area of the scalp.
This treatment usually requires just one appointment and results are normally excellent.
