The word “baldness” or alopecia – the medical term for hair loss. Hair loss is not associated with any particular disease – any form of hair loss is alopecia. The word “alopecia” is of Latin origin, which in turn comes from the Greek alopekia, derivative alopek (fox). Literally translated, the word alopecia (alopekia) implies scabies or itch available in foxes.
Unlike alopecia, which implies loss of hair where their presence is normal and is determined by physiology, “hypotrichosis” – the term describing the decrease in the growth of hair and their numbers in those areas where they should have been.
Hair loss can be caused by a number of states, reflected in the name of the disease. Some names include the term “alopecia” in their names, such as alopecia areata or cicatricial alopecia and some, such as loss on a phase telogen effluvium, does not contain it.
Hair loss can be caused by many factors – beginning with genetic predisposition and to the use of medicines. Although androgenic alopecia (AGA in short), observed in both men and women, is the most common form of baldness, dermatology describes a number of other forms of alopecia. Several hundred diseases include hair loss as a major symptom.
Probably, the most common types of non-androgenic alopecia, which can be detected by a dermatologist, are sections on telogen loss phase, alopecia areata, ringworm, scarring alopecia, and hair loss due to excessive resorting to cosmetic means. Other, less common forms of hair loss can complicate diagnosis, and some patients may wait months or even years for a correct diagnosis and undergo consultation with numerous dermatologists until one of them finally determine the correct diagnosis. In addition, rare diseases are rarely the cause of serious research and treatment of these forms of alopecia are not developed. Often, even when the correct diagnosis, a dermatologist can offer no treatments for the disease.
In androgenic male pattern baldness (also occurs in females) for over 95% of cases of hair loss. By the age of 35 years, two-thirds of men have some degree of appreciable hair loss and by age 50, about 85% of men have significantly thinning hair. In about 25% of men suffering from male pattern baldness, a painful process began even before the age of 21 years old.
Contrary to popular belief in the community, the majority of men suffering from male pattern baldness, it is extremely unhappy with their situation and will do anything to change it. Baldness affects all aspects of their lives, affects interpersonal relationships as well as their professional life. It is not uncommon when a man has to change his career because of the hair loss.
We are firmly against to the search for answers and ready methods through private messages (such as the Yellow Pages), or e-commerce Web sites. Hundreds of products and services that promise a healing or prevention of hair loss, are successfully sold and provided, but currently there are only two products approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), whose efficacy in delaying or preventing hair loss has been clinically proven. In addition, there are a few methods of surgical hair restoration to compensate for a cosmetic flaw.
Androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness (AMT) is responsible for the vast majority of hair loss for men. Although there are many other possible causes of hair loss, including serious diseases, reaction to certain medicines, and, in rare cases, the result of extreme stress, and in most cases a heredity is still responsible for the hair loss.
Hereditary factor expressed by genetically determined susceptibility of hair follicles to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Hair follicles that are sensitive to DHT, decrease in size (miniaturization), reduces their life expectancy. Eventually, these affected follicles stop producing mature, normal hair.
Male pattern baldness, first and foremost characterized by progressive balding, retreating hairline on both sides of the upper part of the forehead and thinning them in the parietal region. Hair in these areas, including temples and the middle front of the scalp are the most sensitive to DHT.
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a derivative or by-product of testosterone metabolism. Testosterone is converted to DHT by the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. Although the whole genesis of AMT is not well understood, scientists proved that DHT reduces the number and suppresses the normal functioning of hair follicles, and that under suppression of the action of DHT hair follicles recover and continue to thrive.
Hair follicles, which were sensitive to DHT, for occurrence of irreversible changes and completion of the process of miniaturization should be hormone-exposed for extended periods of time. Nowadays, with proper intervention, the process can be slowed or even stopped, in case if it is early enough.
Typical male pattern baldness is usually diagnosed basing on symptoms and the nature of hair loss, together with a detailed medical history, including the results of a survey on the prevalence of premature hair loss in your family.
It is required to conduct a study of scalp condition by experienced dermatologist for assessment of the degree of miniaturization of the hair follicles. This assessment is very important to determine the most appropriate course of treatment.
Remember, that successful treatment of alopecia depends on early intervention. It is important to begin treatment with an effective means as soon as you notice the beginning of hair loss.
