Hair Thinning/Balding For Women

Common Baldness / Patterned Alopecia / Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA)

Although a very common and extremely benign condition, balding can have a major psycho-social impact. AGA involves both genetic and hormonal factors Genetics determines both the density and the location of androgen sensitive hair follicles on site-specific areas of the scalp. Post puberty, a series of events triggered by androgens (mainly DHT) within these genetically programmed hair follicles transform terminal (thick) hair to minaturised follicles (vellus hair) FEMALE PATTERNED HAIR LOSS (FPHL) The pattern of balding is usually differ in females than that in males.

This is due to a lot of reasons
  • Women have 3.0-3.5 times less 5a-reductase (I and II) respectively than frontal hair follicle in men
  • Lower levels of circulating androgen, as estrogens play a protective role by lowering free androgen levels by increasing SHBG levels
  • The total androgen receptor concentration is 400/0 less in women than male frontal hair follicle
  • Aromatase is 6 times more higher in the frontal follicles and 4 times more higher in the occipital follicles of women than in those of men

The FPHL is graded using the widely used LUDWIG SCALE which helps determine the future treatment course
