Information About the Field of Hair Transplantation for Receding Hairline

What Is Receding Hairline?

The colloquial term "receding hairline" refers to the condition where the hair around the temples becomes thinner or falls out ultimately, resulting in a centrally protruding hairline. It occurs mainly in men with increasing age.

Cause: How do Receding Hairlines Develop?

The development of receding hairlines has several causes. They often appear because of the normal aging process but also as part of genetic hair loss. Usually, several factors play a role at the same time.

In genetic hair loss, the loss occurs because of the hypersensitivity of hair follicles to male sex hormones, the androgens. Hair follicles surround the hair roots and are essentially responsible for anchoring the hair on the scalp. As a result of the hypersensitivity of these structures, the hair is disturbed in its growth and falls out more frequently.

With this genetic predisposition, hair loss occurs mainly around the temples and the back of the head.

Are Receding Hairlines Also Found in Women?

Since the development of a receding hairline is usually based on the hypersensitivity of the hair follicles to male sex hormones and the female organism also produces male sex hormones to a certain extent, women can also be affected by a receding hairline. Here, genetic predisposition and normal aging processes are jointly responsible for the appearance of the light spots.

In women, however, hair loss appears a little differently than in men.

While men can be affected as early as puberty, hair loss in women usually occurs after menopause. This is due to hormonal changes in the female organism during this period.

In addition, hair loss in women is usually milder than in men and is often less visible, for example, when long hair is worn.

Nevertheless, hair loss can affect men and women equally and reduce the quality of life due to psychological suffering.

What Can Be Done About This Hair Loss?

Since the cause of this form of hair loss is usually a combination of genetic factors and normal aging processes, the development can hardly be prevented. With a corresponding predisposition, the hair follicles already react with an overreaction at average concentrations of male sex hormones.

If hair loss occurs more frequently and causes psychological stress for those affected, a hair specialist should be consulted. This specialist can determine the exact causes of hair loss during a professional medical hair analysis and initiate a suitable treatment in consultation with the patient.

Which Medical Therapy & Treatment Options Are Available?

So far, there is no causal therapy for this form of hair loss. Unfortunately, this means that it is not yet possible to cure the hypersensitivity of the hair follicles. However, some therapeutic approaches can help to reduce the suffering of those affected.

A possible treatment should always be planned to consider the individual circumstances.

One possible therapeutic approach is based on certain medications that aim to keep the concentration of male sex hormones as low as possible. These are usually taken in tablet form. In addition, for affected women, there is also the option of taking female sex hormones. Overall, however, the therapy for this hair loss form is challenging.

Other treatment options aim less at preventing hair loss than treating existing hair loss, so it is hardly visible. Here, for example, is the possibility of a hair transplant. Various methods are used, in which healthy hair is removed as donor hair, processed, and then transplanted into the area of hair loss. PRP treatment for hair loss also shows promising results in many forms.

When is a Hair Transplant for Receding Hairline Advisable?

It should be discussed in detailed consultation with a hair specialist in which cases hair transplantation is an advisable treatment option. Treatment of hair loss is always indicated when those affected suffer. In most cases, the changed external appearance is perceived as a psychological burden, especially when concealing hair loss with appropriate hairstyles is no longer possible.

A hair transplant can then provide relief in many cases. However, for this, certain factors must be considered. Among others, the presumed further development of hair loss plays a significant role, so the timing of a hair transplant should be chosen carefully. An early analysis of the individual hair situation is helpful in any case.

Furthermore, specific criteria must be met for a hair transplant to be considered. This also applies to a hair transplant without shaving, where, among others, the structure and density of the donor's hair and the direction of hair growth are considered.
