Causes

Hair loss is a problem that affects a great number of people of all ages. On average, a person loses between 50 and 100 hairs per day — a small amount compared to the approx. 100,000 hairs on our heads. However, when you suddenly notice a substantial amount of hair left in your comb or on your pillow, it could be the first indication of hair loss.

  • Two-thirds of men suffer from hair loss
  • Over the age of 50, 85% have noticeably thinner hair
  • In 95% of cases, this is “androgenic alopecia”

Androgenic alopecia is the term for both male and female balding. The hormone responsible for hair falling out is dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

This triggers a hypersensitivity in the scalp, which develops in the areas of the forehead and crown.  It leads to the famous “receding hairline”, which, in time, turns into a bald patch. In such cases, the hair becomes thinner, and its condition increasingly deteriorates over time until the hair finally completely falls out.

Pills and drug therapy can slow down hair loss but not stop it. That is why our expert team is there to help you find the most suitable long-term treatment for your hair.

Hair loss is not caused only by genetic predisposition. There are many factors and causes that can lead to increased hair loss. These include:

 

  • Physical or emotional stress
  • Illnesses
  • Medication
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Skin infections
  • Hormones
  • Malnutrition
  • Crash diets

The early stages of hair loss and the change in appearance connected with this can trigger emotional stress. Uncalled-for-comments from acquaintances or work colleagues can have a strong influence on one’s social activities. The psychological stress becomes more significant with time and those affected sometimes withdraw into themselves.

People often suffer from shame and fear for years. But technology does not stand still, and today you have more than one treatment possibility available to you.

Have you noticed that you are losing more hair than normal? Or that your hairline has already receded?

 

Those suffering from hair loss perhaps ask themselves these questions …

 

  • “How much further will it go?”
  • “When will it stop?”
  • “How will I look in the coming years?”
  • “Do I want to look like that?”

Most people start looking for a doctor only when clear signs of hair loss are already visible. However, treatment is already available even as the first signs appear. We are happy to advise you and to help you find a suitable method to stop your hair loss.

 

Hair loss is a continuous process. The Norwood Scale gives you an overview of how it develops with time.

Nordwood-Scale

 Stage I: No visible hair loss

 

Stage II: Hair loss begins on the front of the forehead and at the temples

 

Stage III: Light hair loss at the temple, forehead and crown of the head.

 

Stage IV: Clearly worsening loss of hair on the crown, above the temples and the forehead.

 

Stage V: Hair loss from the forehead to the crown and the upper areas on the back of the head is clearly highly-developed

 

Stage VI: Highly advanced hair loss all the way to the hair on the back of the head. Even at this stage, the transplantation of hair from the area on the back of the head can still be used for your own hair implants.
