“Alopecia” is a medical term which simply means “hair
loss.” Alopecia does not refer to one
specific hair loss disease.
Androgenetic Alopecia, however, is the #1 cause of
hair loss. Androgenetic alopecia can cause
an experience in hair loss as early teenage years.
this type of baldness is typically characterized by hair loss that begins at
the temples and crown. The end result may be partial or complete baldness.
with androgenetic alopecia usually
have hair loss limited to thinning at the front, sides or crown. Complete
baldness rarely occurs in women
majority of women with androgenic alopecia have diffuse thinning on all areas
of the scalp. Men on the other hand, rarely have diffuse thinning but instead
have more distinct patterns of baldness. Some women may have a combination of
two pattern types. Androgenic alopecia in women is due to the action of
androgens, male hormones that are typically present in only small amounts.
