Hair TRansplants & loss
There are many ways to treat female hair loss. This can include use of topical creams and shampoos such a minoxidil, hormonal treatment, light therapy, vitamins and mineral replacement, changing diet and possibly a hair transplant. But finding the underlying issue is crucial.
There can be a number of reasons behind female hair loss;
- lack of adequate nutrition and vitamins
- traction alopecia
- hormonal imbalances (menstrual, peri menopause and menopause)
- overuse of hair dryers and hot irons
It is important to meet with the correct experts of hair restoration for women before you decide to go ahead with treatment.
Our expert team of trichologists, hair transplant surgeons and hair loss experts are there to help you understand your own individual case and find the best way forward for you.

What to Expect
In order to explain the benefits of our treatment and what it involves, it helps to give you an idea of what is involved in the more invasive Strip technique. The Strip technique involves removing a long band of skin from the back of the head with a scalpel, then dissecting the follicles under a microscope before placing them onto the bald or thinning area. This technique always leaves a scar, no matter how skilled the surgeon is, and can cause nerve damage and numbness of the scalp. With FUE, a special punch less than 1 mm in diameter is used to remove the hair follicles directly from the scalp. There is no need for a scalpel, hence no stitching or scarring. We can safely extract up to 7000 hairs in one day whereas with previous generations of FUE it was only possible to safely extract 2500 hairs a day. Another advantage of FUE is that none of the follicular units are damaged during the extraction, whereas with the Strip method up to 30% of the donor follicles may be damaged by the use of a scalpel.
The treatment is simple and painless and the graft heals within 2-4 days. Compare this to the Strip technique where healing time takes up to 30 days and requires very strict post-operative care, and you can see why so many people are choosing FUE over the Strip method.
The length of the treatment depends on the number of hairs needed. Usually between 6 and 8 hours.
As there can be various reasons and factors affecting hair loss for females, we recommend a consultation and in depth lifestyle analysis with one of our highly experienced Trichologists. The cost for a trichologist consultation with Jane Mayhead in London Harley Street is £147. The cost for a trichologist consulation with Denise Knight in Leeds is £127. A consultation with one of our renowned Hair Transplant Surgeons starts from £100.
You will notice a difference immediately. The newly implanted hairs will start to grow, and shed. Hair growth usually starts around 4 weeks, with the final results settling in at about 8-9 months.
