Alopecia, commonly referred to as hair loss or balding, is a condition that will affect 70% of males and 40% of women, in varying degrees, at some point in their lives. There can be a multitude of underlying causes of alopecia, ranging from an autoimmune disorder to a hormonal imbalance or simply improper diet. Despite the great number of people that are affected by this condition, medical science has done very little in the way of implementing an effective and reliable non-surgical hair loss treatment.
In general, alopecia can be defined as an umbrella-term which describes a set of disorders that cause rapid hair falling coupled with a reduction in hair regrowth which leads to gradual hair thinning and the eventual complete loss of hair in certain areas of the scalp. Androgenic alopecia, or simply male pattern baldness, is a very common form of hair loss, caused by the gradual androgenic miniaturization of hair follicles which eventually leads to permanent hair loss. Men will often display a hairline recession at the temples and the vortex that will often result in areas of total hair loss while women usually experience a more diffused hair loss that rarely produces any complete bald spots. Despite the unreliability of pharmaceutical hair loss treatments, there is a number of surgical hair restoration techniques that can stimulate the natural hair regrowth and completely stop hair loss. Follicular unit transplantation surgery (FUT hair surgery) and follicular unit extraction surgery (FUE hair surgery) are innovative means of hair restoration that limit the risks of the procedure and enhance the quality of the aesthetic result. Surgical hair transplant implies transferring follicular units, which are naturally occurring groups of 1-4 strands of hair, from a stable donor area to the recipient area. Because the follicular units are extracted from a donor area that is genetically resistant to alopecia, they will not be prone to falling off permanently. The experienced medical staff of Renew Skin & Health Clinic can help you stimulate natural hair regrowth that will stop hair loss while also drastically reducing any potential risks.
