Women's Pattern Baldness

The most common cause of hair loss in women is the same as in men, Androgenetic Alopecia. This inherited sensitivity to the effects of male hormones (androgens) on the scalp and hair follicles causes thinning of the hair in the same way that it does with men but women rarely develop a receding hairline. Women do not develop the same Pattern Baldness or complete baldness that men do.

Androgenetic Alopecia affects one-third of susceptible women. It is most commonly seen in women after the menopause but can occur in younger women and has even been known to begin in puberty.

Women & Chemotherapy

Taking care of a woman’s emotional health is an important part of every cancer treatment plan. And that means offering easy, respectful and private access to the products that you need to feel and look your best.

With recent advances in hair replacement technology, women have a variety of choices to help make themselves look and feel better during treatment. Images human hair prosthesis is now made to allow a woman’s scalp to show through to give the impression that hair is growing from the scalp.

Although it’s not essential, you should consider visiting Images before you begin losing your hair so that we may become familiar with your present hairstyle and color. Images specializes in hair loss from chemotherapy and pattern baldness and we are able to offer you specific advice.

Images will provide you with advice about how to take care of your new hair. This advice includes what type of shampoos, conditioners, and brushes to use on the prosthesis. Most prosthesis require shampoo and conditioning every one to two weeks. This is something that you may do yourself, or we will be happy to do it for you. We are using 100% human hair, so your new hair can be curled, or treated with hairspray or mousse.

If you are currently or about to go through chemotherapy treatment, please give Images of Princeton a call for a no obligation consultation.

"Just a short note to let you know that I love my new hair. It’s interesting how many people don’t notice – but comment that something’s different about me and that I’m looking great. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job.!”

"Thank you so much for such a wonderful job on my hair. It’s nice to have such a great group of people to get to know during an otherwise unpleasant time. Now I can go out in public with more confidence.!”

"The best compliment received so far though is from the individuals I work with. These gentlemen have no mercy and their collective sense of humor is... at best, well brutal. However, since I've had the process done their comments have all been positive; once the amazement wears off, that is. Not one negative response!”
