Why am I losing hair?

Male Hair Loss: Age, testosterone and heredity. Like many things in life, our age and family history offer a good prediction of what we will see in ourselves. Male hair can be sensitive to and harmed by a break down product of testosterone …. DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE.
Thus, the basis of medical treatment for hair loss is targeted at preventing dihydrotestosterone’s harmful effects on hair. Both topical minoxidil and oral medicines (finasteride, avodart) work by decreasing the effects of dihydrotestosterone on GENETICALLY predisposed hair follicles.

Female Hair Loss: Although occasionally an identifiable cause for female hair loss such as low thyroid, iron deficiency, and auto immune disease can be treated, the most common cause of hair loss in women is HEREDITY.

Surgical hair replacement offers wonderful improvement by optimizing the location and use of remaining hair follicles. Women’s hair replacement is often coupled with other treatments including oral finasteride and topical minoxidil to help prevent further loss of hair.

Technique: Follicular Unit Grafts

Your natural hair grows in a combination of single hairs (follicles) intermixed with multiple (2-3) follicle units. Therefore, what better way to restore your hair? Follicular unit transplants involve moving healthy hair from the back of your scalp to areas of thinning. The transfer of the intact follicular units is just the way nature intended. This technique creates a natural look that is permanent! It is permanent because the hair that is transferred is not genetically sensitive to the negative effects of dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
