Are you seeing less hair in the mirror after you wash or comb through your hair? You’re not alone! Over 80% of men and 50% of women have substantial hair loss at some point in their lives. Hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors.

The disruption of the hair’s normal development cycle causes all patterns of hair loss. The phases of this cycle are as follows:

In Kuala Lumpur (Petaling Jaya), at Hair Transplant Centre Malaysia, board-certified physician Dr. Inder and her staff will assess the cause of your hair loss and work with you to develop a treatment plan for hair restoration that is tailored to your personal situation.

What does each of the two most frequent types of hair loss mean? Find out here.

Androgenetic alopecia

Androgenetic alopecia, often known as male and female pattern baldness, is the most frequent kind of hair loss. Scientists believe that androgenetic alopecia accounts for up to 95% of male pattern baldness.

This form of baldness runs in families, so if either of your parents had it, you have a greater chance of developing it yourself. Hair follicles respond negatively to a testosterone byproduct, leading to male and female pattern baldness.

Hair follicles gradually atrophy and die as a result of chemical exposure. Androgenetic alopecia is a progressive hair loss condition in which follicles gradually cease growing new hair.

Receding hairline, thinning crown hair, and pattern baldness are all symptoms of androgenetic alopecia, which primarily affects men. Women’s hair thinning is often diffuse throughout the scalp or radial from the part. Baldness is uncommon.

Androgenetic alopecia: What does it say about your health

There are measures you may do to prevent further hair loss or even stimulate hair growth if you have already begun the thinning process. Whether or not a treatment is effective for your hair loss relies on the severity of your disease and the health of your scalp.

Medication to reduce hair loss or nonsurgical treatments like low-level laser therapy or platelet-rich plasma are frequently the first lines of defence. Your doctor may potentially recommend a hair transplant as a permanent solution to balding.

Involutional alopecia

Similar to male and female pattern baldness, this kind of hair loss is quite widespread. When your hair grows at a slower rate due to the normal ageing process, its growing phase becomes shorter.

As a result, more of your hair will be shed at once when your hair follicles enter the shedding phase of their life cycles. In most cases, this results in a gradual and somewhat uniform hair loss over the scalp. Hair is also reduced in length as a result of the shorter growth period.

Involutional alopecia: What does it say about your health

Before doing anything else, it’s important to see a doctor to rule out any preexisting problems that might be causing your hair loss. Involutional alopecia is a medical condition that Dr. Inder, as a medical practitioner, can properly diagnose and treat.

Hair follicle-stimulating treatments, such as platelet-rich plasma and low-level laser therapy, have been effective for patients with early- to mid-stage involutional alopecia. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a type of hair transplant that may be recommended for those with severe hair loss.
