30% of men up to 30 years of age and 50% of men up to 50 years of age have hair loss or baldness among the population. The medical name of hair loss seen in both men and women is “Androgenetic Alopecia”. In addition, males are also referred to as male based baldness. The hairline goes back in time and dilutions begin. Usually, the upper line of the hair called the front line is poured. In women, shedding and dilution occur at the same time from each region.
*Male Type Hair Loss
The most common hair loss in males is the loss of the anterior line starting from the top of the head. This area becomes bald through dilution. This process continues for a long time and only a small amount of hair remains on the neck. In recent years, male hair loss has fallen to the age of 18 years. The most important reason for this type of hair loss is the change of testosterone, an androgen hormone. Testosterone is converted to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) with an enzyme known as 5-Alpha Reductase. This hormone sends signals to the hair and causes the hair to become weak and infrequent. Early detection slows or stops all of these causes. The hair loss rate in men has increased to 80 percent.
*Female Hair Loss
Today, many women suffer from hair loss. In particular, stress, improper nutrition, hormonal changes, pregnancy, menopause, misuse of cosmetic products, hair dyeing and seasonal transitions cause hair loss. There are 3 types of hair loss in women:
1- Spills starting from 1-2 cm behind the front of the hair in the hill area
2- Shedding in the top area
3- Spills on the entire head area
In advanced cases, hair transplantation is performed. Such practices should be done by specialists in the hospital environment. Hair transplantation is performed with local anesthesia and does not compromise the comfort of the patient. Seasonally, it can be done in every period.
