Androgenetic Alopecia The most common type of hair loss By Sowmya Varada, Dana Alessa MD, Peter Schalock Androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss that affects both men and women. This type of hair loss is gradual, irreversible, and occurs in a characteristic pattern, involving the temples and crown of the head in men, and the top of the head in women. Cause As the name suggests, androgenetic alopecia depends on two things: androgens and genetics. Androgens are a class of hormones including testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). These hormones cause hair follicles to have a progressively shorter than normal growth phase, producing hair shafts that are shorter, thinner, and that eventually disappear. Excessive Hair Fall Alopecia Androgenetica Fue Hair Hair Transplantation Hair Regrowth The exact role of genetics in this disorder is not well understood, but may determine how a person’s hair follicles respond to androgens. Men and women who have a family history of androgenetic alopecia are more likely to be affected themselves. Because men generally have higher levels of androgens than women, they tend to be affected by baldness more extensively than women. In women, the disorder can sometimes be brought on by other diseases that cause abnormally high levels of androgens in the blood. Symptoms Androgenetic alopecia does not produce physical symptoms. However, in some people it can cause a significant psychosocial impact including feelings of low self-esteem. Hair loss can be especially difficult to cope with for women and men affected at a young age. Androgenetic alopecia in men (“male pattern baldness”) Appearance In men, hair loss starts at the temples or the crown of the head and spreads to other parts of the scalp. The occipital scalp (the back of the head above the neck) is usually spared. Hairs will gradually become smaller and thinner, eventually disappearing and leaving behind a smooth and shiny scalp. Unlike with some other types of hair loss, inflammation or scarring is not seen. Diagnosis Diagnosis in men is by clinical examination and does not require any specific diagnostic tests. A biopsy of the scalp may be needed if the diagnosis is uncertain. Androgenetic alopecia in women (“female pattern hair loss”) Appearance In women, hair loss starts on top of the head and may be most obvious when the hair is parted at the midline. The front of the hairline is usually intact. Hair thinning occurs with the affected scalp slowly becoming sparsely covered with hair. Full baldness is rarely occurs. Inflammation or scarring is not seen. Diagnosis Diagnosis in women is primarily by clinical examination, however, several blood tests to rule out hormonal abnormalities may be required. A biopsy of the scalp may be needed only if the diagnosis is uncertain. Treatments Minoxidil (Rogaine®) is a topical liquid or foam that is applied to the scalp. It works by lengthening the follicle growth phase, allowing hairs to grow longer and thicker. Available over the counter. Can be used by both men and women. Twice daily use for a minimum of six months is necessary to completely evaluate its effectiveness. Treatment is indefinite, as minoxidil only treats the hair loss and does not cure it. Finasteride (Propecia®) is an oral pill that works by decreasing the production of DHT, one of the androgens responsible for decreased hair growth. Only available by prescription. Should only be used by men. It is unsafe in pregnancy and has not been shown to be effective in most women. Spironolactone is an oral pill that works by blocking the action of androgens at the hair follicles. Should only be used by women but is unsafe in pregnancy. Surgical treatments for androgenetic alopecia include hair transplantation and scalp reduction. In a hair transplantation procedure, healthy hair follicles from other parts of the scalp are transplanted to areas affected by hair loss. In a scalp reduction procedure, scalp affected by hair loss is removed and healthy scalp is stitched together.
