Androgenetic Alopecia (Male & Female Pattern Baldness)

androgenetic alopecia example of hair loss

What is Androgenetic Alopecia?

This is the most common cause of hair fall in men. Androgenetic alopecia is passed on within generations. Thus one needs to look at their relatives and find out if there have been cases of hair loss that run in the family. Androgenetic Alopecia is characterized by progressive thinning of the scalp hairline.

Androgenetic alopecia is a common form of hair loss in both men and women. Androgenic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss in men. More than 50 percent of men over the age of 50 will be affected by male pattern baldness to some extent.Hair is lost in a well-defined pattern, beginning above the temples. Over time, the hairline recedes to form a characteristic “M” shape. Hair also thins at the crown, may progress to partial or complete baldness. Commonly known as male-pattern baldness.In female pattern baldness, hair becomes thinner all over the head, and the hairline does not recede. Androgenetic alopecia in women rarely leads to total baldness.

The first sign of AGA is seen as the recession of temporal hair or loss of side hair. Further, as the condition progresses hair loss moves and the hair loss covers the entire crown. Hormonal changes that are shown in men to be from Androgens are the major cause of hair loss. This can be easily reversed with medications and some other procedures which don’t require surgery. FUE and FUT Hair Transplant can easily reverse this condition.

Androgenic alopecia in Female

In contrast to male-pattern baldness, women lose their hair in a different pattern. While the hairline does not recede, women’s hair thins down all over their heads. Women with androgenetic alopecia rarely develop complete baldness.

Androgenic alopecia in Male

Men’s androgenetic alopecia has been linked to a number of different illnesses, such as coronary heart disease and prostate enlargement. Androgenetic alopecia has also been linked to prostate cancer, insulin resistance conditions (such diabetes and obesity), and high blood pressure (hypertension). This type of hair loss in women is linked to a higher incidence of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). A hormonal imbalance that can result in irregular menstruation, acne, extra body hair (hirsutism), and weight gain is what PCOS is known for.

When the Androgenic Alopecia starts in Men & Women?

Androgenetic alopecia is a frequent cause of hair loss in both men and women. This form of hair loss affects an estimated 50 million men and 30 million women in the United States. Androgenetic alopecia can start as early as a person’s teens and risk increases with age; more than 50 percent of men over age 50 have some degree of hair loss. In women, hair loss is most likely after menopause.

Reasons behind the Alopecia

According to research, androgen hormones, notably dihydrotestosterone, are responsible for this particular type of hair loss. Androgens play a crucial role in male sexual development during puberty and before delivery. Additionally, androgens play crucial roles in the regulation of hair growth and sex drive in both men and women.

Follicles, which are found beneath the epidermis, are where hair development starts. Each hair strand typically develops for two to six years before entering a resting period for a few months and then falling out. When the follicle starts to develop a new hair, the cycle repeats. Increased androgen levels in hair follicles can shorten the hair growth cycle and cause the development of shorter and thinner strands of hair. In addition, the creation of new hair to replace strands that fall out is delayed.

Despite the fact that multiple genes may be involved in androgenetic alopecia, only one gene variant, AR, has been proven in research. The androgen receptor protein is made according to instructions from the AR gene. The body may react correctly to androgens like dihydrotestosterone and other androgens thanks to androgen receptors. According to studies, androgen receptor activity in hair follicles is raised as a result of polymorphisms in the AR gene. However, how these genetic alterations enhance the incidence of hair loss in both men and women with androgenetic alopecia is yet unknown.
