Are growth factors effective for women with androgenetic hair loss? It sounds promising for men. Is there any reason it would not work for women?
Yes growth factors would be as effective for women as men with genetic hair loss. However, it is still unproven and the verdict is still out as to whether or not growth factors are going to have a significant place in the field of hair restoration surgery. Already, growth factors are showing signs of improving wound healing, minimizing shock loss of existing hair and creating stronger hair growth of the original hair. Beyond that, at this point, we do not know what other benefits growth factors will have in hair restoration. However, I do feel that there will be equal advantages for both females and males.
