BALDNESS / Androgenetic Alopecia
(Male & Female pattern hairloss)

Androgenetic Alopecia is a genetic condition that can be passed down from either side of the family tree. It is caused by a bi-product of testosterone named Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

DHT attaches to the hair follicles and causes them to shrink over time, which causes the hair to become thinner and thinner until some men become totally bald on the top of the head.
 


BALDNESS / Androgenetic Alopecia (Male & Female pattern hairloss)

Although there are a number of hair loss conditions that can affect men & women, the most common is Androgenetic Alopecia or genetic hair loss.

Genetics
If parents have hair loss, there are more chances of hair loss in children. The hair loss genes can pass on to children from either parent. Only if the gene gets activated, then the person will go through hair loss. At what age the hair loss gene gets activated, it cannot be predicted, but it can be predicted. If hair loss gene gets activated at younger age, the hair loss is faster due to higher levels of DHT at younger age.

DHT
The DHT level in the body is very high in twenties and thirties. The DHT level gradually gets reduced in forties and fifties and the level is extremely low in sixties.
Higher DHT level leads to faster hair loss in individuals with genetic predisposition for hair loss. Higher or lower DHT does not damage the hair, if there is no genetic predisposition for hair loss.

 
Androgenetic alopecia in females

Androgenetic alopecia in females is the most common condition that we see and treat in women.


Women with female pattern hair loss generally experience diffused thinning, generally throughout the top of the head or crown.

Usually begins at around the age of 30 and even as early as in the 20s. The thinning hair usually becomes noticeable around age 40, and may be even more noticeable after menopause.
