Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT CAUSES HAIR LOSS IN GENERAL?
The term “common baldness” usually means male-pattern hair loss. Male-pattern hair loss is the most common cause of hair loss in men. Men who have this type of hair loss usually have inherited the trait (hair follicles receptive to DHT bonding). Men who start losing their hair at an early age tend to develop more extensive baldness. In male-pattern baldness, hair loss typically results in a receding hair line and baldness on the top of the head.
WHAT IS COMMON BALDNESS?
In typical male pattern hair loss, hair follicles that carry genetic coding bond with DHT (dihydrotestosterone – a hormone that slowly kills the hair follicle), weaken hair and slowly cause it to fall out. The hair follicles on the back and lower sides of the head do not attract DHT. Hair on the front, above the temples, top of scalp and crown can all be DHT receptive, depending on your genetic coding. Hair grafts are taken from donor areas on the back and sides, where follicles are not affected by DHT. When these grafts are transplanted to the front, crown, and top of scalp, they retain their resistance to DHT hair loss and last a lifetime.
Some medicines, hormonal changes, disease (such as lupus or diabetes) and major stress to the body (surgery, accident) can cause hair loss.
DHT hair loss affects two in three men. While many other “solutions” and miracle shampoos promise their product blocks DHT, only two were approved by the FDA, finasteride and minoxidil. Although a great product, it still doesn’t promise fast, natural, permanent and cost effectiveness that hair grafts promise.
