The best in hair restoration procedures for women

Symptoms of female pattern baldness
With female pattern baldness, the most common symptom is hair thinning at the center of the scalp that progresses over time, often resulting in the top of the scalp becoming entirely bald.

Hair miniaturization in women: androgenetic alopecia
The most common cause of thinning hair in women is called “androgenetic alopecia”, which affects about 50 percent of women, most often during the 50s and 60s. This condition occurs when the hair follicle, rather than producing a new hair of the same thickness after normal shedding, produces a thinner, weaker hair strand. The hair follicles shrink and will eventually become dormant, unable to produce hair strands. The hair breaks easily, not growing as long while also being more delicate and less dense in some parts. Treating this condition often requires transplanting healthy hair follicles to the thinning area, along with hair growth supplements, light therapy, or other non-surgical support.
How does hair restoration for women work?
In a single procedure, from a few hundred to as many as 2000 hair grafts can be transplanted. Because the hairs are kept in their natural state (just as they grow in the scalp), once transplanted into the thinning areas they create a very aesthetic result, undetectable as a transplant. The direction each follicle is placed, the number of hairs it produces (from one to four), and other considerations are all evaluated at every step of the procedure when under the care of Dr. Jacono at his private NYC clinic. The new hairs will continue to produce healthy strands of hair throughout your lifetime.
