ABOUT HAIR LOSS RESTORATION

There are many possible causes of hair loss. Hair loss can come from stress, nutritional deficiencies, trauma, illness, and more. However, the vast majority of hair loss comes from genetics. Genetic hair loss affects an estimated 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States.

Hair loss often starts at the top of the head and can make you appear older than you feel! Many patients seek hair loss restoration at Charlotte Hair MD to help regain their self-confidence and restore the natural, youthful-looking head of hair they once had.

Charlotte Hair MD is here to help you understand what might be the reason for your hair loss and to help you meet your hair restoration goals in NC. The advancements in hair restoration have drastically improved all aspects of the hair restoration process. With both male and female pattern baldness, the right treatment will depend on your individual hair restoration goals. Dr. Marko will help you decide the right treatment for you.

WHAT IS MALE HAIR LOSS?

Studies have shown that pattern loss is increasingly evident and advance as people age. In male-pattern baldness, the hairs on the top of the scalp have a genetic sensitivity to the male hormone testosterone (DHT). The hairs on the sides and back of the scalp do not possess this genetic trait and therefore are not affected. For this reason, hairs removed from the sides and the back (donor hair) will maintain their genetic predisposition when transplanted and continue to grow when moved to the top of the scalp where hair loss has occurred.

WHAT IS FEMALE HAIR LOSS?

There are both differences and similarities between male pattern baldness and female pattern hair loss. Luckily, there are many forms of hair loss solutions for both men and women offered at Charlotte Hair MD. Hair loss in women derives from DHT, the same hormone that occurs in male-pattern baldness. As DHT continues to bind on hair follicles, more hair is lost in the process. However, hair loss for women looks different than it does for men. Rather than a receding hairline or circular baldness on the scalp, thinning hair occurs in the hair part for women. As hair progressively thins at the part, the scalp becomes more visible.

WHAT IS PATTERN HAIR LOSS?

Androgenetic alopecia is the scientific name for the genetic predisposition in both men and women for pattern baldness. Pattern hair loss in men is often referred to as Male Pattern Baldness (MPB). Androgenetic alopecia is the cause of over 95% of all pattern hair loss, including baldness in men and thinning hair in women. Pattern hair loss occurs in somewhat predictable stages and is relentlessly progressive. Usually, the earlier in life pattern hair loss begins the more advanced the pattern will ultimately become.

WHAT IS NORMAL HAIR LOSS?

We all lose hair every day. Hair grows for an elongated time, usually 2 to 6 years, and then the follicles shed the hair and go into a resting stage for approximately 3 months; a new hair growth cycle then begins. It is normal to lose between 50 to 150 hairs per day from normal shedding.

WHAT IS PATCHY HAIR LOSS?

Alopecia areata is an immune system disorder, which causes hair follicles to stop producing hairs. Sudden loss of hair from small patches on the head is a common symptom. Advanced forms of the disorder include alopecia totalis, where all hair on the head is lost, as well as alopecia universalis, which results in the absence of all body hair.

DOES HAIR PULLING AFFECT HAIR LOSS?

Traction alopecia is the loss of hair from constant pulling, often the result of tightly braided hairstyles and hair weaves.

WHAT IS SUDDEN HAIR LOSS?

Anagen effluvium is the sudden loss of growing hairs as a result of chemicals or radiation. Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy halt the growth phase of hair follicles and result in the sudden shedding of hair. Some medications including diuretics, blood thinners, acne medications, and birth control pills can also cause hair loss as a side effect.

OTHER HAIR LOSS CAUSES

Certain chronic Illnesses can result in hair loss. Hormone-related irregularities can include hair loss among other symptoms. Skin infections can result in hair loss. Trauma, such as burns and injury to hair follicles, can cause permanent hair loss.*

WHAT IS HAIR LOSS FROM STRESS?

Telogen effluvium is a slowing of new hair growth resulting from sudden severe stress, followed by a delayed shedding of hair. The stress induces a high proportion of follicles to enter the resting stage, and, a few months after a stressful event, all of the resting follicles begin to shed hairs at about the same time.

DO NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES
AFFECT HAIR LOSS?

Nutritional deficiencies are rarely a cause of hair loss. In rare cases, certain nutritional deficiencies can cause weak hair shafts that tend to break off.

DO BROKEN HAIRS AFFECT HAIR LOSS?

Hair shaft breakage is when part of a hair breaks off, but the growing end remains in the follicle and continues to grow. Hair shaft breakage results in thinner hair and can be caused by excessive styling, chemicals, sun, and chlorine in swimming pools.
