Women & Hair Loss

Losing your hair can be discouraging, but there are many treatments at Goodman Dermatology that can help you slow and even reverse hair loss. We offer these services to the residents of Roswell, Marietta / East Cobb, Woodstock and Dawsonville, GA.

What is Hair Loss in Women?

Hair loss in women is most often a case of female pattern baldness, which is characterized by the permanent hair loss from the scalp. For women, this often develops along the hair part, starting with a thinning of the hair. Of course, there can still be other forms of hair loss in women, which may not follow the typical female pattern baldness symptoms.

What Causes Hair Loss in Women?

If you are experiencing female pattern baldness, the cause of your hair loss is most likely genetics. However, there are other causes of hair loss in women that include pregnancy, disease, and various skin conditions. If you are affected by one of these conditions, your hair loss may fluctuate or stop completely after the condition is treated. Female pattern baldness, on the other hand, cannot be cured, and instead requires regular treatment. No matter what form of hair loss you are experiencing, Goodman Dermatology can help find the best hair loss treatment for female patients.

How Much Does Female Hair Loss Treatment Cost?

The cost of female hair loss treatment will vary depending on the techniques used. At Goodman Dermatology, we understand that each patient is entirely unique. With different skin types, cosmetic features and treatment needs, each patient deserves a personalized treatment that is designed with them in mind. For these reasons, we are not able to provide an exact cost for treatment until we have the opportunity to assess your treatment goals and develop a personalized treatment plan.

During your consultation, we will discuss your needs and treatment goals in order to determine this treatment plan and inform you of your female hair loss treatment cost. To make our treatments more affordable for our patients, we are proud to offer financing options through CareCredit®.

How is Female Hair Loss Treated?

Since there are several reasons for hair loss in women, treatment will vary depending on the symptoms and conditions you are experiencing. Our recommended hair loss treatment for women is PRP for hair loss, which uses the growth factors found in your own blood to stimulate natural hair growth in the scalp.

If you are suffering from a skin condition that causes hair loss, we may instead recommend a treatment to address the condition that is causing your hair loss. Patients often find that this alleviates their condition and stops hair loss from occurring. 

Are There Any Side Effects from Female Hair Loss Treatment?

The side effects from your female hair loss treatment will vary depending on the treatment method used. However, most side effects are temporary and mild in nature.

Is There Any Downtime Required After Female Hair Loss Treatment?

Our female hair loss treatments generally require no downtime or recovery period. During your consultation, we will inform you of any post-treatment precautions that will ensure optimal results.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Female Hair Loss Treatment?

The results you achieve from female hair loss treatment will vary depending on the treatment method used. In any case, our goal is to restore natural hair growth to slow the effects of hair loss and help you achieve a fuller head of hair. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment options to determine the treatment plan that will deliver the best results. At this time, we will let you know what kind of results you can expect.
