Frequently Asked Questions
Both men and women experience male and female pattern baldness, also known as Androgenetic Alopecia. Assuming you are not suffering from any underlying diseases or experiencing extreme stress, hair loss is due to one’s sensitivity to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of testosterone. Testosterone is present in both men and women, though men produce higher levels. As men experience higher levels of DHT, their hairlines may begin receding, resulting in male pattern baldness. For most women, this tends to occur more often after menopause as the production of female hormones, which balance the presence of testosterone, decreases, leading to female pattern baldness. However, any long term and significant fluctuation in hormones can cause this.
