Male Pattern Baldness Is A Common Problem For Up To 80% Of Men
Many people are aware that male pattern baldness is a common problem for up to 80% of men. New Jersey hair transplants are a popular choice for men between the ages of 30-60, however, they are a growing trend for women too. In men, characteristic signs of genetic hair loss, also known as androgenic alopecia, will often begin with classic hairline recession at the temples and balding at the crown of the head. Women will often experience hair loss along with hormonal shifts, and thinning is diffuse over the whole head or primarily at the crown.
As the name suggests, androgenic alopecia is related to hormones called androgens, that are present and important in both genders. Hair loss can be related to a number of factors, not all of which are permanent. As well, it’s important to see a medical professional for assessment if experiencing sudden hair loss because an underlying endocrine condition or tumors may elevate hormone levels. Women typically experience hormone shifts during pregnancy, with the introduction of certain medications and with the onset of menopause.
Shortened Hair Follicles Growth
For many women, the growth phase of hair follicles will be shortened with age and androgenic factors causing the normal hair growth cycle to speed up and hair to fall more quickly than the standard 100-200 hairs per day.
A change in our appearance that we have no control over can be devastating and especially for women, loss of one’s hair can have severe negative effects on one’s self esteem and confidence.
