While both male and Female Pattern Hair Loss are caused by a combination of genetics, hormones and the aging process, the pattern in women differs from that seen in men. Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) typically involves a more diffused thinning of the hair on top of the head rather than the more defined frontal and vertex loss seen in Male Pattern Hair Loss (MPHL).

Other forms of hair loss also exist which may be symptoms of stress, pregnancy, medication side-effects, or autoimmune disorders. Cases of hair loss from these causes typically follow a different pattern and progress differently than FPHL or MPHL.

Understanding Your Female Pattern Hair Loss Patients

Initial hair loss consultations may be a difficult office visit. Understand that a patient who is experiencing Female Pattern Hair Loss may be emotional as this condition is very hard to accept. Women may be reluctant to initiate the conversation. The psychological consequences of hair loss can be very damaging, with some studies reporting that 63% of female patients* actually feel depressed or despondent.1 You, as a trusted expert, can play a key role in helping patients re-gain confidence through an approach of empathy, honesty, and encouragement.
