Female pattern thinning as it is known or Androgenic Alopecia – can affect women of all ages from puberty and of varying degrees of severity. It is inherited genetically and presents as hair becoming increasingly finer on the top region of the head, causing the scalp to become more visible.
This condition is connected to the hormone DHT but circulating in the area rather than an increased amount in the blood. Contrary to the belief of many medical peers- at Sussex Trichology we can both arrest the thinning and achieve an impressive and noticeable degree of regrowth also. I feel it most important that you fully understand this condition and the treatment offered here, as with all conditions treated- you will receive on-going monitoring and support.
This can really impact on the quality of women’s lives, I have patients who won’t go swimming or spend hours trying to cover the “transparency” on the top of their head. It’s truly rewarding to see the improvement of the hair following treatment and the confidence that this brings.
