What causes hair loss for men and women?
The primary cause of hair loss in men (androgenetic alopecia) is the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT causes hair to thin over time eventually falling out and causing male-pattern baldness. Male-pattern baldness is where the hair thins around the temples and crown of the head. Classes of hair loss in men are illustrated by the Norwood Scale.
Hair loss in women is typically characterized by a general thinning throughout the scalp and usually begins at menopause. Before menopause, DHT is counteracted by estrogen but when these levels drop it’s possible that the follicles can be affected by DHT. Hair loss classes in women are illustrated by the Ludwig Scale.
Hair Loss Solutions
Hair transplant surgery is the only permanent solution to hair loss. This relatively simple procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and typically takes 3/4 to one full day to complete. Given local anesthesia is used, Bosley patients often read, watch movies, listen to music and even sleep during the procedure.
