Hair Extraction Women

Although women are less likely than men to experience hair loss, those who do have several permanent hair replacement options to consider. The Giannotto Clinic is pleased to offer many hair replacement options for women in the privacy of our Washington DC-area office. Discover how Dr. Giannotto and his staff of expert professionals can help you or your loved one restore a youthful appearance with the hair implants for women that Washington DC recognizes for natural, permanent results.

The Causes of Hair Loss in Women

Unlike men, who always retain hair growth on the sides and rear of the head, women often lose hair volume all over the scalp. And while men typically lose hair because of Male-Pattern Baldness, recent studies indicate that women usually lose hair because of hormone deficiencies. Although the evidence is still unclear, when women produce less estrogen, the overall hormonal balance suffers. When this occurs, hair loss sometimes results.

Although the causes of hair loss differ between men and women, the treatment options are generally the same. Each option removes hair follicles from the sides and rear of the scalp, which are then implanted into the thinned or bald areas. In this way, the client benefits from the production of natural hair.

Hair Extraction for Women


Dr. Giannotto uses two treatments when performing hair restoration therapy. The first, called Follicular Unit Transplantation, moves up to 3,000 grafts in one procedure. Dr. Giannotto removes a strip of follicles from one hair-producing part of the head and transplants it to a thinned or bald spot. The results are natural and permanent and can typically be seen in three to four months following the procedure. Recovery times vary based on client, but typically occur in two to three days.

Follicular Unit Extraction, also called FUE Neograft, requires no incisions and is performed almost entirely by robot technology. Instead of removing and transplanting a strip of skin, the robot removes the follicle, leaving only a small puncture. The robot implants the follicle into a thinning area, again with no incision.

FUE Neograft is considerably more labor intensive than FUT and can move 2,000 grafts at one time; however, because FUE Neograft requires no incision the downtime is shorter. Many clients who undergo FUE procedures heal in less than one day.
