Patterned alopecia, especially in males, first starts with the recession of the hairline and then thinning over the front and sides of the scalp. This could be hereditary or due to the increase in activity of the androgens. Androgens are hormones that play a role in male traits but can also be found in women.
Treatment for this type of genetic alopecia aims to retain the remaining hair and stop the progress of the disease before hair restoration procedures can be started. However, hair transplantation is the only permanent solution for this, especially on a fully bald patch or scalp. Hence, early intervention is advised with home care or in-clinic mesotherapy procedures like Platelet Rich Plasma ( PRP) or Stem cells therapy.
