‘Going bald’ / Hair Loss / Androgenetic Alopecia occurs in different stages, usually in a typical pattern.
Hair loss starts at the temples and / or crown of the head. Temples become larger as the hair line recedes, while the thinning spot on the crown increases in size and decreases in density, until these two areas eventually meet, creating a bald appearance.
Depending on where the patient falls in this hair loss spectrum will help to determine how many hair follicles will have to be transplanted and general suitability to the treatment.
Hair loss can continue even in areas where hair has been transplanted, this will be the residual non-transplanted hair in that area that continue to miniaturize in the absence taking finasteride.
Non-surgical treatments are usually recommended for hair loss patients in early stages, which can include hair loss supplements, oral medication, topical treatments, and mesotherapy treatments such as Low Level Light Therapy and Dermaroller treatment.
These treatments can slow down the progression of hair loss, or even stop it completely.
Older patients usually present with more advanced stages of hair loss.
