Hair Loss Is A Problem For Both Men And Women

Sep 3, 2008
Hair loss is a natural part of the body's process of renewal. The causes are many and varied but one thing is for sure and that is untold millions of people of all sexes and ages are affected by it worldwide. If you loss your hair, the correct medical term for this occurrence is Alopecia. Androgenic Alopecia may not be a term you have heard but it accounts for nearly ninety five out of one hundred cases of hair loss in men; it is usually referred to as Androgenic Alopecia, and it's hereditary.

However, it may be that your diet needs attending to if your hair loss is only moderate. Exposure to chemicals or cosmetics, hormonal imbalance, stress, anxiety and mental tension are some of the other causes. Please note that if your hair follicles are undamaged then there is a good chance that your condition may only be temporary; it is only when the follicles are damaged that the problem can become permanent. Surprisingly, women account for nearly 4 in every 10 sufferers in America today; so it is not, as commonly thought, a male problem.

In fact, hair loss is also common among women as they age although with women a thyroid condition is one of the more common causes. By the time they reach sixty, forty percent of women around the world will have experienced loss of some form or another. Another period where women may suffer some hair loss that is not age related is during and after pregnancy. Approximately 30 million women in the United States experience female pattern, hereditary baldness.

A relatively new treatment is to surgically restore hair for sufferers of permanent hair loss. It involves the process of transplanting hair follicles from one area of the scalp to another. Hair transplants have become the most popular form of hair restoration treatment for men with the entire procedure done under local anaesthetic and on an out-patient basis. It is now possible for women to enjoy this hair restoration treatment that men have been using but it is becoming popular for women who also wish to hide some scarring caused by previous face lifts.

It is important to try and keep your appearance as close as possible to your original when having hair transplant therapy and not try to look like someone else. For a person planning on having hair transplant surgery, all current health issues must be cleared up before any treatment can commence. Even though hair restoration is a cosmetic procedure, aspects involved are different from other forms of cosmetic surgeries. New hair restoration techniques are being discovered all the time but if you have not found success then perhaps hair transplant therapy might be your only course of action for your hair loss.
