Androgenetic Alopecia And You

San Francisco CA Hair Replacement Services

The month of March is all about roaring its brave head in rebellion against the cold winter. Are you ready to announce your presence this spring, or is your hair loss making you shy away from anything that requires you take off your hat and expose your head? Androgenetic alopecia may be the cause of your hair dissatisfaction.

Androgenetic alopecia is known as MPHL (male-pattern hair loss) in men and (FPHL) female-pattern hair loss in women.

Male-pattern hair loss may affect

  • The top and front of the scalp
  • A Hippocratic wreath is usually created
  • The rim of the hair at the sides and rear of the head typically remain
  • The loss and thinning of the hair is usually gradual and is often the result of DHT that shrink hair follicles.

Female-pattern hair loss may affect

  • The gradual thinning of the hair mostly around the crown
  • The frontal hairline is usually not affected
  • Temporal recession may occur, but is not as common
  • Hormones are usually linked to hair loss in women (pregnancy, menopause, DHT, heredity, birth control pills and ovarian cysts)

If you have FPHL or MPHL, there are many options for you to reclaim what once was with regard to your hair loss. One such option offered at San Francisco Union Square Hair is a Platelet Rich Plasma (RPR) hair transplant. This process promotes your hair growth through a natural process. The plasma derived from your blood makes this process safe and effective. It will ensure the healthy continuation of a large number of natural processes in your body.

If you suffer from androgenetic alopecia, PRP may be the right solution for you. Contact Dr. Ransom for a consultation to discuss this and other treatment options available to you at our Union Square Hair office.
