Genetics, one of the main causes of hair loss

but women can get to suffer, in 99% of cases, hair loss is mainly hereditary and hormonal factors.
Gaston de la Garza Martinez, member of the Association of Plastic Surgeons, Aesthetic and Reconstructive of Baja California (Ccperbc), said other secondary causes include certain diseases, trauma, radiation and drugs.
The baldness is the most common type of androgenetic, which is an aggregate of male hormones and heredity; in this sense, necessarily sufferers have a history, ie, a carrier of alopecia gene by either parent.
Then comes the hormonal factor by male hormones called androgens, testosterone being the main of them.
Alone will not produce testosterone hair loss, but to become through an enzymatic metabolism in another hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is causing regular cycles of hair.
De la Garza Martinez stressed that the manifestation of alopecia occurs after you start to produce androgens after puberty.
Therefore, a 15-year-old begins to develop his hard hormonal pattern baldness develop at that age, but if your genetic regulation is of androgenetic type gradually see some entries visible on the front.
The normal day is falling 50 to about 100 hairs, not when hair loss is excessive on the front, behind the crown and top of the head, he said.
He recalled how the treatments for these diseases have evolved, moving from plants, positions and lotions more specific processes, whereas in genetic matter nothing can be done but in the hormonal factor.
He noted that there are drugs that decrease levels of DHT and other like minoxidil that help keep the hair in place.
But it is not permanent and that if you have baldness gene expression will fall sooner or later, so it is important both as implanted hair preserve and care which still has.
Similarly, he noted, for transplants today there are technological tools that facilitate the process.
He cited the fact that a robot does microincisions via laser beam around the follicle, allowing the physician manually removing hair later reposition it in bald areas where it will grow.
