Curious about why you are going bald? In this hair loss blog, we'll explore the bald facts behind balding and, most importantly, share proven solutions for treating this type of hair loss

The Bald Facts! 

Balding can be extremely upsetting because it is an advanced form of hair loss that affects both men and sometimes women. 

The loss of hair, especially in noticeable patterns or patches, can be traumatic, leading to feelings of self-consciousness and diminished self-esteem. The emotional impact of balding can be profound, as hair is often closely tied to one's identity and appearance. 

However, there is hope. There are both non-surgical and surgical hair loss treatments that successfully address balding, offering effective solutions to restore hair and confidence.

Top 3 Reasons People Go Bald

  • Genetics: Male and female pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most common cause of hair loss. It is inherited and results from a combination of genetic predisposition and hormone levels.
  • Hormonal Changes: Hormonal imbalances, such as those experienced during puberty, pregnancy, childbirth, or menopause, can contribute to hair loss. Conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and thyroid disorders can also affect hormone levels and lead to hair thinning or baldness.
  • Medical Conditions & Treatments: Certain medical conditions, such as alopecia areata, scalp infections, and autoimmune diseases, can cause hair loss. Additionally, treatments like chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and certain medications may result in temporary or permanent baldness.

Am I Balding? 

What men and women should look for: signs of going bald that are easy to spot. 

Besides this checklist, a professional scalp and hair follicle analysis is key to determining if balding is indeed in your future.

Men (and women) can use the following hair loss checklist to determine if they are going bald:

  • Receding Hairline: Noticeable thinning or retreating of the hairline, especially around the temples, also called front hair balding. 
  • Thinning Crown: Hair loss on top, thinning at crown, or bald spots developing on the top of your head.
  • Excessive Hair Shedding: Finding more hair than usual on your pillow, in the shower, or in your hairbrush.
  • Wider Part: A noticeably wider part line when styling hair.
  • Scalp Visibility: Increased visibility of the scalp through the hair, particularly in areas that used to be thicker.
  • Family History: A family history of male pattern baldness or significant hair loss.
  • Slow Hair Growth: Hair growing more slowly or not at all in certain areas. (for women see androgenetic alopecia
  • Changes in Hair Texture: Hair becoming finer and weaker over time. (see Menopause hair)

If you check off any of these signs, it is time to consult a hair loss specialist to explore your options. Fortunately, Este Medical Group offers free hair loss consultations, book one today! 

The sooner you address your hair loss, the sooner you can restore your hair growth and enjoy thick, strong, healthy hair for years to come.

Non-Surgical Bald Hair Loss Treatments 

If you are experiencing early male pattern baldness, or have had hair loss indicating a balding head is in your future, then these are proven and effective treatments you can start now! 

Natural PRP & PRF Hair Injections + Mesotherapy 

  • PRP Hair Therapy
  • PRF Hair Therapy 
  • Mesotherapy for Hair Loss 

Mesotherapy combined with PRF or PRP treatments for balding is hugely popular because platelet-rich hair injections are natural and proven to address many hair loss conditions, including baldness and alopecia. When organic platelet-rich plasma is injected into the scalp, it naturally stimulates and reactivates hair follicles, increasing hair growth in the treatment area (e.g., your bald spot). PRP and PRF hair injections enhance blood circulation to the scalp, triggering cellular repair and promoting hair regrowth. 

Stop Going Bald, Try Stem Cell Therapy For Hair Loss

Another natural and no surgery route to treat baldness is stem cell hair therapy. It is the latest in advanced hair regrowth treatments using stem cell injections for hair loss.

Stem cell therapy, like PRP and PRF hair loss treatments utilising blood plasma, taps into the body's own stem cells, making it one of the latest natural methods for addressing baldness. By leveraging the body’s innate healing and repair mechanisms, stem cell therapy offers a promising approach to treating female and male hair loss.

Surgical Solution to Gone Bald! 

For extensive baldness, a Turkey hair transplant procedure is often the most effective and permanent solution. Ideal for male pattern baldness, procedures like FUE transplants are also suitable for women experiencing dramatic hair loss. Whether addressing male baldness or female pattern hair loss , a hair transplant provides the most effective and lasting restoration for large areas of balding and bald spots.

Here are several Este Medical Group hair transplant options for baldness: 

  • FUE Hair Transplant for Men
  • FUE Hair Transplant for Women
  • DHI Hair Transplant
  • Unshaven Hair Transplant
  • Long Hair Transplant 
  • Afro Hair Transplant

Based on our hair grafting experience, a professional hair transplant is the most effective method for regrowing hair on a bald area. During the procedure, old hair follicles are replaced with new ones capable of producing hair, resulting in successful outcomes for severe hair loss.
