This is a common problem among men as they get older. According the American Hair Loss Association, by 35, two-thirds of men experience some degree of hair loss. By the age of 50 in men this percentage increases to 85%.
Almost half of men experience this sometime in their life usually thinning at the crown of the head or frontal scalp. This type of hair loss is often referred to as "male-pattern baldness." The cause is biological and hereditary, and is usually fueled by testosterone. Female's can also experience pattern baldness, usually at the top of the scalp. Female's usually experience female-pattern baldness after menopause caused by the shrinkage of hair follicles. There are also a number of disorders that can cause one to lose their hair including alopecia which we treat at WellMedica.
Hair Loss Treatment
Here at WellMedica we treat hair loss and alopecia through Low Level Laser Therapy. This is a safe form of light/heat treatment generally used for hair loss in both men and women. Low Level Laser Therapy has also called red light therapy, cold laser, soft laser, biostimulation and photobiomodulation. In recent years this type of therapy has grown throughout the country, and many medical practices have implemented it. Under the care of a Board Certified Laser Surgeon like Doctor Dima Ali, these lasers are safe and effective. It is also a non-invasive, pain free, no downtime treatment; performed usually in a matter of minutes. Generally there are no side effects or reported adverse events.
