Female Pattern Baldness in DFW
Female Pattern Baldness (sometimes termed Androgenetic alopecia) is the diagnosis of Female Pattern Hair loss.

Hair loss can occur in women for reasons other than female pattern baldness, including the following:

Female pattern baldness is of obvious cosmetic importance but does not indicate a medical disorder, it can affect self-esteem or cause anxiety. The hair loss is usually permanent.
