Hair Restoration – Hair Loss in Women
Hair loss is a condition that society still largely associates with men, but more than 20 million American women suffer from female pattern hair loss. Female pattern hair loss is a progressive condition that nearly 66% of women will experience in their lifetime. Unlike male pattern hair loss, female pattern hair loss is often hard to diagnose because the underlying cause of the condition is not certain, but genetics, hormones, menopause, and a multitude of health problems have been linked to the condition. Female pattern hair loss is also difficult to treat, because unlike men, women tend to lose hair in any area of the scalp as opposed to the temples and crown like men.
Because the hair restoration industry tends to cater less to women, many of the hair restoration medications and procedures available today don’t perform with the same efficacy for women as they do for men. Thankfully, advances in regenerative medicine have uncovered innovative techniques that can successfully treat female pattern hair loss.
At ReGenMed, we use PRP Therapy to help women restore fullness and volume to their hair. Our founder, Dr. Manohar Jethani, is board-certified in emergency medicine, and specializes in regenerative medicine, specifically platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy, to heal at the cellular level.

PRP Therapy is a groundbreaking treatment for female pattern hair loss because it’s safe, natural, and proven effective. PRP Therapy is a versatile treatment that’s been used across a variety of medical specialties to heal damaged soft tissues and cells with impressive results. A 2015 study conducted at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology found that a single PRP injection noticeably improved hair density and thickness in female pattern hair loss patients .
In comparison to topical treatments or hair transplant surgery, PRP Therapy is a quick and noninvasive procedure that involves a simple blood draw and centrifugation process to prepare the PRP concentrate used for injection. The centrifugation process separates and concentrates platelets, the active ingredient in PRP, from plasma, white blood cells, and other components of the blood. The PRP concentrate is then injected into the affected areas of the scalp to stop hair loss and promote new hair growth.
After the PRP concentrate is injected, it releases growth factors that draw reparative stem cells to the affected area. These stem cells not only stop hair loss, but they also activate dormant hair follicles, repairing them to stimulate new hair growth.
