Scalp Micropigmentation. An effective solution enhancing Female Hair Density

Many people think that hair loss, known medically as alopecia, is a male issue. Unfortunately, it is not. It is a common female problem and prevalence increase with advancing age. The fact is that it is a subtler process in women than it is in men but causes similar psychological distress badly affecting confidence and social functioning.

Less than 45% of women go through life with a full head of hair.* Female hair loss is not spoken about as male hair loss. It is a much more common problem for women so that people realise.

During life, the female body goes through many hormonal changes, and it needs to adjust to those by going through several physical changes. One good example is the menopause causing hormonal imbalances by lowering the production of estrogen and progesterone. A decrease in these two hormones increases the production of a group of male hormones called androgens. The first noticeable physical difference in hair is widening parting, which is caused by shrinking follicles. That makes hair grow thinner and easily breakable. The hairline does not tend to recede, but the scalp is becoming more visible.

There are many other different reasons than hormonal imbalances for female hair thinning that affect the hair volume. From genetic predispositions, through extreme stress situations, deficiency in a diet, changes to the body (i.e.childbirth) to the side effects of medical treatments (i.e. chemotherapy). Female hair loss usually takes the form o gradual thinning throughout the hair. Women are less likely to go bald. Very helpful is addressing the physical aspects of hair loss and finding suitable solutions. A proven and permanent cosmetic treatment to enhance Female Hair Density is Scalp Micropigmentation.
