Androgenetic Alopecia (Genetic Hair Loss)

Most men and women will experience some level of hair loss at some point in their lives, often as a normal part of the aging process. Commonly referred to as Male/Female Pattern Baldness, Androgenetic Alopecia accounts for 95% of all hair loss. Androgenetic Alopecia is primarily a hereditary condition; however, diet and lifestyle can contribute to thinning hair in both men and women who are genetically predisposed to hair loss.

    About Androgenetic Alopecia

    For many years, the hair loss industry thought that Androgenetic Alopecia was caused by the predominance of the sex hormone testosterone, which all bodies have in varying 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 difficult for healthy hair to survive.

    Solutions to Androgenetic Alopecia

    Genetic hair loss is often progressive; therefore, it is important to catch this form of hair loss early in order to counteract the damage that the DHT is causing to future hair follicles.

    While there is no cure for Androgenetic Alopecia, proper hair and scalp care can help slow down the process. Our Certified Trichologist (hair & scalp specialist) will analyse your hair and scalp profile with a micro-camera and skin diagnostic equipment, measuring hydration, oil and PH levels of the scalp in order to assess your level of genetic hair loss at our Mississauga clinic and provide a personalized treatment plan.

    At Truly You we offer the very best Trichological solutions for genetic hair loss at our Mississauga clinic. We use clinically tested products in conjunction with sophisticated, cutting-edge technology to create holistic treatment plans that get to the root of your hair loss. Your genetic hair loss treatment plan may include consistent topical treatments both in-clinic & at-home, vitamin supplementation to address deficiencies that are damaging to hair (such as iron), as well as in-clinic procedures such a LED laser therapy and scalp stimulators to increase blood flow and microcirculation of the scalp. Your treatment program will be determined at your consultation with our Certified Trichologist at our hair loss Toronto clinic. Whatever your treatment plan, when it comes to treating Androgentic Alopecia, consistency is key. It’s important to dedicate yourself to a treatment routine in order to see the best results.
