Androgenetic alopecia

Androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss in men and women worldwide.

It is also called “androgenetic alopecia” and “male pattern baldness”.

Although this form is called “male pattern baldness”, androgenic alopecia can also affect women and is the most common form (50% of cases).

Thanks to modern research on the genetics and chemistry of male hormones, we know that the pathological basis of androgenetic alopecia is the result of male hormones – testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – on genetically predisposed individuals.  Androgenetic alopecia involves the existence of an abnormal gene passed on at birth. This abnormal gene has not yet been identified despite extensive scientific research.

Androgenetic hair loss is “chronic” and “progressive:” It is well documented that men who are subject to hair loss will continue to lose more hair if the condition is not treated and stabilized.  It is characterized by a progressive decrease in the quantity and quality of hair that very often begins in adolescence.  

  • A miniaturization of the follicle occurs: the hair becomes sparse, thin and only slightly longer.
  • The root begins to shrink and the hair growth cycle is reduced.
  • A thinning process of the hair that gradually becomes down.
  • Eventually, the hair root dies and at this point it is too late to intervene.

It is generally faster and more serious if it starts earlier (16-18 years). 

Don’t worry, I have solutions for you.  Although it is impossible to completely stop hair loss, it is possible to control its progression and slow it down.  So, instead of waiting to see what life has in store for us, let’s act early and intervene before the quality of your hair degenerates.
