“The most common cause of hair loss in both men and women is androgenetic alopecia, which is genetic pattern hair loss,” explains Dr. Michael Wolfeld, a board-certified plastic surgeon and an assistant clinical professor of plastic surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. The root cause of this type of hair loss is dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a byproduct of testosterone that shrinks certain hair follicles until they eventually stop producing hair.

I agree everyone should at least try Finasteride to see if they experience side effects, personally I tried it and it gave me side effects even taking 1/4th of a pill, I also tried avodart and wow that REALLY gave me side effects, it gave me retrograde ejaculation, some ppl are just sensitive to androgen suppressors, if you are then your best bet is to stay away from anything that suppresses your androgens, your hair loss may suffer from this though. Currently I’m on lipogaine and Nizoral, I throw in Emu Oil too, I’m going to give the dermaroller a chance. You can still fight hairloss without Finasteride, give it a chance if you experience sides come off of it immediately, weigh the pros and cons, obviously my sex life is more important than hair so I chose to come off of it, but not everyone will experience side effects like I did.

A healthy scalp has around 80 percent of its hair follicles in the growing stage while the other 20 percent is in the resting stage. Hair thinning and loss occur when that vital growing state either slows down considerably or stops.
Hannah, I enjoyed your round-up on hair loss treatments and procedures. However, I think you may have glossed over an important fact in your discussion of modern hair transplant procedures. As with any procedure, some professionals are focused on patient comfort and others less so. The same is true with hair transplantation. In your article you make a blanket statement that hair transplants are painful and expensive, when in fact this is doctor-dependent and technique dependent. Just like producing artistic results and performing minimally-invasive FUE style of hair transplants take years and years and hundreds of cases to completely master, providing a comfortable experience to patients is the same. Hair transplant newbies or part-time surgeons are less likely to understand the nuances of patient selection, hair loss management and artistic hairline design, so too will they be more likely to perform hair transplants (and even PRP) without adequate attention to patient comfort. (I’ve heard reports that some PRP docs do scalp injections without ANY anesthesia… ouch!) In our training programs, we teach our “Ouchless Protocol” for PRP and minimally-invasive FUE Hair Transplants in addition to the other detailed nuances that most newbie surgeons forget. As more and more inexperienced surgeons enter the field of hair transplants and offer PRP to meet patient demand, we are seeing a resurgence of MAJOR errors, unfortunately, and the need for corrective hair transplantation by ABHRS-certified hair transplant surgeons. Bottom line, a hair transplant does NOT need to be painful… in fact, most of our patients fly in for the procedure because they have heard correctly that our procedures are comfortable (even “Ouchless!” as well as being well-executed and delivering high-quality, natural results. For patients, we instruct them to do their due diligence and homework, read reviews, look for certifications, experience, expertise, watch videos and get long-distance consultations before choosing an FUE hair transplant doctor.

Telogen Effluvium: This type of hair loss is the second-most common experienced by both men and women. It is characterized by hair shedding in several areas that does not follow a specific pattern.

Minoxidil was the first drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of male pattern baldness. For many years, minoxidil, in pill form (brand name Loniten), was widely used to treat high blood pressure. Just like finasteride, researchers discovered a very interesting side effect of the drug. People taking the medication were growing hair in unexpected places, such as on their cheeks and the back of their hands. Some people grew hair on their foreheads.
Are you going to use it directly on you face and chest? It will help, but a cheaper alternative would be regular minoxidil. You don’t need DHT blocking properties in minoxidil to grow facial and chest hair.
FUE takes place in a single long session or multiple small sessions. The FUE procedure is more time consuming than strip surgery. An FUE surgery time varies according to the surgeons experience, speed in harvesting and patient characteristics. The procedue can take anywhere from a couple hours to extract 200 grafts for a scar correction to a surgery over two consecutive days for a megasession of 2,500 to 3,000 grafts. With the FUE Hair Transplant procedure there are restrictions on patient candidacy. Clients are selected for FUE based on a fox test, though there is some debate about the usefulness of this in screening clients for FUE.
