Program Description

The live online webinar will occur on the date and time as noted. The live program will be recorded and available for viewing on demand until Dec. 31, 2023. This 2-hour CME activity is a live webinar which will be recorded with the intention to be re-watched or viewed as on-demand education.

The program is intended for physicians who perform hair transplantation surgery utilizing either strip or FUE graft harvest methods. This webinar is being conducted to provide physicians knowledge on Female Hair Loss, from diagnosis all the way to medical, surgical and ancillary treatments. As a result of this activity, learners will be able to gain more knowledge to provide optimal results for patients. The online live component will include presentations, panel discussion, and audience participation via verbal questions and discussion and typed chat Q&A.

Professional Practice Gap

Female Hair Loss is more complex to diagnose and treat than men’s. There are pathologies specific to female patients, expectations and treatment risks specific for them. More frequently we are seeing female patients in our consultation and we should be prepared to address them correctly.

Educational Need

More than one third of women have clinically significant hair loss during their lifetime, and its effect on patients’ emotions is often greatly underestimated. Besides, due to the fast growing characteristic the hair follicle has, many metabolic derangements can be manifested with alopecia, and hair loss may be the first clinical sign of systemic disease. Diagnosis depends greatly on clinical examination, medical history, trichoscopy and confirmation by trichogram and biopsy if necessary. Treatment will vary greatly depending on diagnosis; from systemic medical treatment to surgical treatments, should be directed accordingly and expectations managed and explained.

A hair transplant surgeon needs to know the differences between pathologies and its medical and/or surgical treatment correlations, including ancillary treatments like mesotherapy, platelet rich plasma or scalp micropigmentation.
