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.
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 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.
