Hereditary-Patterned Baldness Explained By Dr. Gaurav
Dr. Gaurav has covered many topics on Hair Loss before, from reasons for Hair Loss to the relationship between Hair Loss & Stress. In this article, Dr. Gaurav will elaborate on THE MOST common reason for Hair Loss in the world, and that is Hereditary-Patterned Baldness!
About Hereditary-Patterned Baldness
Hereditary-Patterned Baldness is not a disease but a natural condition that occurs as we age due to many factors like genetics, the natural aging process, and the hormone levels and hormonal changes that one experiences over the course of their life.
Hair Loss is something that almost all men and women experience as they age, while approximately 40% of men and women experience Hair Loss that comes in a lot more obvious form. In this day and age, it’s common for Hair Loss to begin in the 20s and 30s for men while for women it is experienced at a much later stage.
How Hereditary-Patterned Baldness Develops
Hereditary-Patterned Baldness begins with thinning of hair that eventually progresses to complete hair loss that can result in the patient becoming fully bald. It begins typically from the temples and crown and then eventually only a rim of hair is left along the sides and the back of the scalp.
How Can Hereditary-Patterned Baldness Be Diagnosed?
Hereditary-Patterned Baldness Can Be Diagnosed easily by an experienced Hair Fall or Hair Transplant specialist with the help of a simple in-person examination.
How Can Hereditary-Patterned Baldness Be Prevented?
Getting in touch with a specialist when the Hair Loss stages have just begun is the only tactic that can help you in the early stages, as Hair Loss due to Hereditary-Patterned Baldness is permanent if most of your hair has already fallen then the only viable solution that can work is a Hair Transplant.
However, in case professional help is sought after at the early stages then many Hair Fall treatments (some of which we’ve covered in the other article on our blog this week) can greatly help.
When Do I Get Medical Help?
In case you can spot patchy hair loss or are noticing hair fall wherein the hair falls out suddenly or in large clumps then the sooner you get in touch with a Professional the better! In case a preventive treatment is not begun in time then the hair loss can become pronounced over time.
How Can Hereditary-Patterned Baldness Be Treated?
In this day and age, there are many treatment options like PRP Therapy and GFC Therapy. Dr. Gaurav has also elaborated on all the Hair Fall treatments in one of our recent videos so be sure to check out that video after going through this article.
In case the Hair Loss has progressed to a stage where the treatments wouldn’t be of any benefit then a Hair Transplant might be recommended. Hair transplant when done at the right clinic by the right doctor is one of the safest methods to regain your lost hair permanently and effectively!
