Our hair is integral to our overall appearance, as evidenced by the countless millions of dollars spent on hair maintenance and hair care products by Americans today. Numerous studies have shown that men with a full, lush head of hair are assumed to be younger, more virile, and more successful, while the details of a woman’s hair style are the first thing noticed and commented on by men and women alike. So it should come as no surprise that the first sign of unexpected changes to our hair, such as graying, thinning, or losing it entirely, can have a devastating impact on our psyche and self-confidence.
More than 75% of men will suffer from some form of hair loss in their lifetime, typically after the age of 50. Male pattern baldness is usually genetic, and manifests itself with hair thinning at the temples and vertex of the scalp. For some men, thinning hair may prove to be the extent of the problem, but for others, the hair loss moves progressively up the head until all that remains is a rim of hair at the sides and rear of the scalp.Contact Us Today!
Thinning hair and pattern baldness is often thought of a male problem; however, more than one in three American women will suffer hair-related aesthetic problems at some point in her lifetime. For women, these changes are often caused by genetics, poor nutrition, physical and emotional stress, thyroid abnormalities, or hormonal changes. Female hair loss generally manifests as thinning hair without a defined receding hairline.
