As we get older, both men and women experience some hair loss. It is a normal part of the aging process. Androgenetic Alopecia (or genetics) accounts for 95% of all hair loss. It often runs in families and affects some people more than others. With today’s environment, our diets and lifestyle, we are seeing more and more young men and women experiencing thinning hair.
For many years, the hair loss industry thought that Androgenetic Alopecia was caused by the predominance of male sex hormones: testosterone ( which women also have in trace amounts ) While testosterone is at the core of the balding process, DHT is thought to be the main culprit.
Testosterone converts to DHT with the aid of the enzyme Type II 5-alpha reductase, which is held in a hair follicle’s oil glands. Scientists now believe that it’s not the amount of circulating testosterone that is the problem, but the level of DHT binding to receptors in scalp follicles. DHT shrinks hair follicles, making it impossible for healthy hair to survive.
It is important to counteract the damage that the DHT is causing to the future hair follicles early. With our micro camera a.k.a.
