Male Hair Loss Stages

The reason most men lose their hair is commonly found to be androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness. While there can be other causes, including disease, medical treatments, and trauma, male pattern baldness is usually attributable to genetics (95%).

Hair loss is caused by the conversion of the male hormone testosterone to DHT. 5 Alpha reductase causes testosterone to break down in the body to DHT. This DHT or dihydrotestoterone causes hair follicles to shrink and progressively disappear. Male pattern androgenetic alopecia is characterized by a receding hairline and thinning at the crown. Hair in these areas appears to be the most sensitive to DHT. As your hair loss increases, the entire top of the scalp may go bald, leaving only a “horseshoe” of hair. For some men, even this remaining rim of hair will ultimately be lost.

Now is the time to act. Hair loss is progressive; the longer it is left untreated, the worse it will get. Dr. Mollura can help to reverse this process with DHT blocking topical treatments, DHT-blocking medications, Laser Hair Therapies, Non-Surgical Hair Systems, and even hair transplant surgery.

Women’s Hair Loss Stages

Contrary to popular belief, female hair loss is relatively common. Approximately 30% of women will experience at least some degree of thinning. The differences between female hair loss and male pattern baldness are vast, beginning with the visual variance. While men tend to get bald spots, often beginning with a receding hairline, women rarely have either. Instead, they tend to experience thinning throughout, all over the head.

Women can also experience the partial or total loss of their eyebrows and eyelashes. Although women generally conceal hair loss with styling techniques & cosmetic enhancements, they often suffer more than their male counterparts from the psychological impact of the condition and the societal belief that thinning hair is normal for men but unheard of for women.
