FEMALE ALOPECIA
It is possible to restore your image and treat your hair.

Alopecia

Alopecia in women develops at the frontal and upper level of the head, in spite of this, it develops in a more diffuse way than male baldness and it keeps the integrity of the first line, which means that there are no hair entries. Its evolution occurs more slowly than in men as it rarely reaches such advanced stages.
Many researchers have tried to classify androgenetic alopecia in women to establish the degree of baldness and to be able to unify therapeutic, medical and / or surgical criteria. But it was not until 1977 when Dr. Ludwig presented a scale with 3 degrees of evolution. Currently this scale is the one that is universally accepted.
Women also suffer from hair loss, and we know from our experience that it can be really discouraging. Female hair loss not only occurs in post-menopausal women, but it can also be due to events such as pregnancy, or some disease that has consequently hair loss.
For both women and men, the most common cause of hair loss is androgenic alopecia. However, it develops and evolves differently than men. That is why in fact another metric is used to identify the state of alopecia: The Ludwig scale.

What is the Ludwig scale?

Type I
In this phase there is only a small loss of hair or it becomes thinner. It is important to visit our DHI experts at this stage to be able to treat the affected areas.
Type II
Noticeably decrease of hair volume. In the middle line there is a receding of hair, leaving an important area without hair. If you are in this phase, a hair implant would be a good option.
Type III
There is significant hair loss on the top of the head. If you are in this phase, it is highly recommended to visit our DHI specialists for a professional hair treatment.
