3 Hair Loss Types

Most New York Hair Transplant Patients Experienced Hair Loss Types

Reliable And Effective Cures

There are a lot of reasons that a person may lose their hair and only a few safe, reliable and effective cures exist.

One such permanent and effective hair restoration solution is a surgical hair transplant. In New York, hair transplants for men and woman are more popular than ever, yet not every kind of hair loss qualifies for this procedure.

It’s important for people considering a hair transplant to seek medical attention for sudden unexplained hair loss or bald patches. Medications, nutritional deficiencies, certain diseases or trauma may all cause hair loss and they require care and attention to treat the cause. The following three types of hair loss usually qualify for a hair transplant procedure.

Androgenetic Alopecia

Androgenic alopecia is also known as genetic hair loss, or male pattern hair loss. Men and women with this progressive hair loss condition are born with hair follicles sensitive to a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which is a hormone that causes hair follicles to shrink, produce finer hairs and then cease to produce them. When a person sees their parents or grandparents have this patterned hair loss, they can assume they will likely have it too. Men with androgenic alopecia typically see the hairline at the temples recede first and they lose hair at the top of the head, or crown. Women with androgenetic alopecia will usually see diffuse hair thinning with their part becoming wider, though their hairline will remain intact in most cases.

Involutional Alopecia

Involutional alopecia describes the fairly normal, gradual hair loss that progresses as we age. A higher percentage of the hairs on your head will shift into the resting phase as you age, and the remaining hairs may become finer and grow more slowly. Aging is the second leading cause of hair loss, though the progress is not typically sudden or dramatic.

Are you a Candidate?

Have you considered options for a hair transplant, but you aren’t sure what the procedure involves or if it is the right choice for you? Answer a few simple questions to see if you are a good candidate for FUE Hair Transplant.

Damaged Follicles

Traction Alopecia

Traction alopecia is most commonly seen in women, especially those in cultural groups that routinely wear tight hairstyles such as braids, weaves and dreadlocks. The hair follicles become damaged over time because of constant tension pulling them from the scalp. Unfortunately, pulling on hair does not make the hair follicles stronger and though some hair which is pulled out will initially grow back, eventually the effects are permanent and bald patches remain. This condition is usually apparent at the temples and hairline so in women, this is the likely cause for a receding hairline. People with this type of hair loss are often great candidates for New York hair transplant methods. Today’s hair transplant techniques, whether FUE or FUT, can permanently restore a patient’s real, growing, healthy hair.
