Hair Loss Patterns

“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.



For men, 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.



Women with androgenetic alopecia usually have hair loss limited to thinning at the front, sides or crown. Complete baldness rarely occurs in women

The 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.
