Alopecia is the medical term for excessive or abnormal hair loss. Hair loss occurs when, for some reason, your hair’s natural growth cycle is disrupted or impaired. At Exeter Trichology, we determine the underlying causes, and provide practical recommendations or treatment to address the condition.
Here’s some information about hair loss in women and men.
Hair loss in women
Hair loss in females usually presents itself in the following ways:
• Increased shedding
• Bi-temporal hair thinning
• Reduction in the volume of their hair (ponytail)
• Diffuse central hair thinning
• Patchy or total hair loss
This hair loss can be caused by a number of different things; a medical condition, genetics, pregnancy, medication, stress or even diet. There are recognised therapies and treatments available, which can prevent or limit the problem, and which are likely to improve the overall appearance of your hair.
Hair Loss in Men
Male hair loss usually presents itself in the following ways:
• Receding hairline
• Increased shedding
• Patchy loss (sudden or gradual)
• Total loss
For men, hair loss is more commonly associated with the ageing process, termed male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia).
Not all male hair loss is genetic, however. Sometimes, the issue can be an underlying health problem or lifestyle factor, which is why it’s important to get an early diagnosis.
However, that doesn’t mean you have to accept the loss of your hair – and at Exeter Trichology, we offer a range of medical and non-medical solutions that can slow the rate of hair loss, or help camouflage it.
Treatments for Hair Loss
During the initial consultation, we’ll discuss your current diet and lifestyle, plus examine your hair and take a sample if required. It may be necessary to perform further tests, and in some cases, we might refer you to your GP. Whatever treatment you require, we’re here to support and guide you throughout the process; and to ensure that your hair loss is treated with both specialist knowledge and sensitivity.
Not all men's hair loss has a genetic cause and this is why it is important to secure an early diagnosis.
