The most experienced female hair restoration center in Tampa Bay
Hair loss is undeniably common in both men and women. While hair loss is often thought of to be more prominent in men, many fail to realize how common it actually is among the female population. Roughly forty percent of women in the United States suffer from thinning hair or balding areas by the age of 40 years old.
Here at Tampa Bay Hair Restoration, we recognize how severe losing the thickness of your hair can seem and how much it can take a toll on your emotional well-being. We are here to inform you that your hair loss doesn’t have to be a permanent thing. There are multiple solutions to restore your hair once again, whether you’re looking to take a more natural or surgical route.
Androgenetic alopecia is a hereditary form of hair loss and the most common reason for thinning hair among men and women. When this genetic hair loss disorder occurs in women, it is commonly referred to as female pattern baldness. Female pattern baldness not only affects the hair found on the top and crown of the head, but can even have an affect on the eyebrows. Hair loss can also occur due to other medical conditions, traumatic experiences like an accident, certain medications, menopause, and physical or emotional stress.
Thinning hair in women can occur at almost any age and for a variety of different reasons. This is why a private and personalized consultation is strongly recommended for anyone noticing their hair beginning to thin or fall out in larger quantities. As hair loss can occur differently among each individual, an in-person consultation will allow the physician to get the best understanding of each patient’s hair restoration needs as well as possible treatments.
While men most commonly begin to show signs of a receding hairline, the effect of androgenetic alopecia is a little different for women. Female pattern baldness gradually thins hair located on top of the crown. This causes the part to slowly widen over time rather than losing hair in the frontal hairline like men.
You may be pulling out handfuls of hair when you wash it or run a comb through it. While this can be a symptom of female pattern baldness, stress also plays a large part in increased hair loss. It can be frightening losing a clump of hair, but always remember – the calmer you are about it, the better it is for your your health and your hair. If you become worried or think you may have androgenetic alopecia, contact a certified hair restoration doctor to thoroughly understand all of your possible options. Most doctors will provide a free consultation just to provide you with all of the information you need to make the right decision for you.
You may notice that your hair doesn’t feel as thick as it once was. While it isn’t as common in women, androgenetic alopecia can still cause patchy and balding areas in females. If sudden or drastic hair loss occurs, we recommend consulting with a doctor. Drastic hair loss is usually a sign of a genetic hair loss condition. When treated in the earlier stages of hair loss, patients are able to regrow more hair in comparison to those treated at a later stage.
Don’t let your thinning hair take a toll on your life or your emotions. It’s important to come in for a consultation as soon as hair loss is noticeable, as more treatments are an option during the earlier stages of the hair loss cycle.

Follicular unit transplant (FUT) is a popular female hair transplant surgery that uses the linear strip harvesting method and naturally occurring follicular hair units to restore hair loss in women. With the use of Dr. Markou’s LaserEdge Closure Technique, we’re able to accelerate the healing process and promote cell regrowth. FUT is ideal for women who do not want to shave or trim any area of their head, or those within the more advanced stages of hair loss.
Growth factors are a minimally invasive, non-surgical hair loss treatment that promotes healing and new hair growth for women. Platelets are taken from the patient’s own blood and are derived of the most important healing influencers (growth factors). Once injected into the scalp, the growth factors will stimulate tissue repair and regeneration, causing hair to grow fuller and thicker. The procedure is ideal for candidates with a busy schedule, as minimal to no downtime is required after the treatment. Dr. Markou uses growth factors with other hair loss treatments to provide the most optimal results for his patients. The treatment is highly recommended for women.
Stem cell therapy is a non-surgical hair loss treatment that restores and revitalizes damaged hair follicles. Stem cells are a type of regenerative cell that help repair and strengthen damaged tissues. Patients are able to resume their normal schedule shortly after the treatment, as minimal downtime is required post-procedure. This type of hair loss treatment has shown incredible results in women looking to restore the length and thickness of their hair. The stem cells will prevent further hair loss from occurring, stimulate damaged follicles, reduce inflammation in certain medical conditions, increase blood flow in the scalp, and even improve the overall quality of hair.
Low-level laser therapy is a non-surgical hair loss treatment that promotes new hair growth in very short sessions. The laser uses specific wavelengths to stimulate tissue repair and regeneration. Patients are able to return to their normal schedule immediately after each session. The low level laser has shown incredible results for women by rejuvenating damaged follicles, increasing the density of each follicle, and stopping further hair loss from occurring.
Minoxidil (brand name = Rogaine) is an over the counter topical solution that is used for the treatment of androgenic alopecia. It is the first and only medication that has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of female pattern baldness. The medication works by widening hair follicles – which allows more oxygen, blood, and nutrients to flow into the follicle. The medication not only stops hair loss in its tracks, but has the potential to even stimulate dormant follicles back into the growth phase. In turn, longer and thicker strands are produced.
The Regen-Med hair growth products offer a non-surgical, alternative solution to treat hair loss. The hair supplement products are derived of Emu Oil, which is well-known for its potent healing properties. The Regen-Med products were created specifically for Tampa Bay Hair Restoration and offer many great benefits to those suffering from hair loss. They work by stimulating dead follicles, revitalizing and hydrating dormant hair, and promoting cell regeneration. According to the Boston School of Medicine Research, these products were proven to provide patients with a 20% increase in hair growth.
