The first to notice is that our hair turns weaker and thinner than normal. Later we realize that it is losing volume and density. These characteristics should be considered as alarming so we must consult a specialist to stop the progressive baldness.
Most of the people who consult a specialist with those symptoms are diagnosed with androgenetic alopecia; it is inherited baldness that affects eight out of ten men and four out of ten women and can appear at any time of their lives.
Different studies confirm that androgenetic alopecia increases with age and its principal cause is hormonal imbalances. The intensity of the fall increases in men after reaching the forty and in women after menopause.
If it is not treated, doctors affirm that hair loss will progress until affecting the whole scalp, with men it starts with losing hair in the entries and crown, and with women in the decrease of the scalp’s hair density.
Notably, if androgenetic alopecia is treated on time, it is reversible. However, if the diagnosis is too late, the only solution left is a capillary transplant. So if we suspect suffering from this kind of baldness, it is recommended to visit a specialist as soon as possible before things get worse.
When androgenetic alopecia diagnosis is made in its initial phase, doctors normally prescribe certain medications such as minoxidil (topical use) or finasteride (oral use), two components that both the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the EMA (European Medicines Agency) have certified to be used against hair loss.
We can buy the first one in ampoules with a dozer to pour the product on our scalp, every night for at least three months, to increase the blood supply so the nutrients can penetrate and strengthen our capillary follicles.
The second one, a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor, can be found in pills that help the hair strengthens and thickness, and also stop its fall.
If none of them works and the androgenetic alopecia progresses, or we were diagnosed too late, the only solution left is a hair transplant. Lately, this technique has been improved a lot, and as we remember, Capiclinic offers guaranteed results for the patients. Whatever your case is, you should know that you can end baldness, either by using any of the mentioned treatments or having a hair implant.
