Hair Loss Facts about Hair loss in men is different to hair loss in women…
Male Pattern Hair Loss (MPHL) is a common condition, with up to 50% of males being affected.
MPHL involves progressive thinning (miniaturisation) of scalp hair and usually affects the frontal, mid scalp and crown regions (and occasionally the temples).
Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) is a common condition affecting up to approximately 50% of women over 50 years of age.
It involves gradual thinning or miniaturisation of hair – mainly in the frontal region, mid scalp and crown region of the scalp. Typically the frontal hairline remains unaffected.
Female Pattern Hair Loss is also referred to as Androgenic or Androgenetic Alopecia.
Alocopecia Araeta is a form of patchy baldness that is typically caused by autoimmune dysfunction and has been shown to respond to PRP Hair Restoration Therapy.
PRP Stem Cell Hair Restoation works on Alopecia Areata by implanting your own body’s Stem Cells and Growth Factors in the area of baldnes to stimulate hair regrowth.

Other Causes of Hair Loss
There are also multiple possible causes of hair loss (in men and women) that are not the result of MPHL or FPHL.
Some of these include:
- Scarring (traumatic) – surgical; burns etc
- Iron Deficiency
- Thyroid Disease
- PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) in women
- Nutritional Deficiency
- Autoimmune Disease
Many of the above causes of hair loss can be improved by medical and/or surgical treatment (Hair Transplant Surgery), and revision by a qualified medical expert is essential prior to commencement of any treatment.
