There are a myriad of highly successful treatments for hair replacement in Houston at the Puig Hair Restoration Center. One common problem that responds well to treatment is male pattern baldness, also known as alopecia. It’s a common problem with men that continues to increase with age. In fact, eight out of every 10 men experience this condition. Unfortunately, there’s no known way to reverse the condition.
Male pattern baldness is genetically related, so if it runs in your family, there’s a chance of inheriting the tendency, although it doesn’t affect every generation. Some men start seeing signs of male pattern baldness in their early 20s with an “M” shaped hair loss that starts around the hairline.
Each hair strand, located in its own scalp follicle, tends to shrink with age resulting in finer and shorter hair. That might not be so bad, but although the hair follicles are alive, they don’t grow new hair. Since the follicles are still alive, it seems likely that there might be some way to prompt new hair growth, but right now that’s not possible.
Almost as Many Women as Men are Looking for Hair Replacement in Houston
Hair loss also affects women, although it’s not a topic that’s openly discussed. When a woman starts to lose her crowning glory, it’s embarrassing. Out of every four women, one suffers from hair loss. With an accurate diagnosis, women find great success with hair restoration treatments.
It’s important to understand hair growth cycles and hair loss. The growth cycle consists of three phases starting with the “anagen phase, This phase usually involves 85 percent of your hair at the same time” and takes between two to six years. It’s followed by the “catagen,” and ends with the “telogen phase.”
The catagen transitional phase, which lasts between one to two weeks, shows that the hair follicle will shrink to 1/6 of its original length with the lower portion destroyed. The portion that nourishes the hair follicle breaks away.
The telogen resting phase lasts between five to six weeks with the attached resting follicle. This involves about 10 to 15 percent of your hair. Once this phase ends, the anagen phase begins again.
