Hair Loss in Men and Women

Do you think you are alone who is facing the issue of thinning hair? No, my dear!

In fact, there’s a whole community of men and women out there with thinning hair. Millions of people around the globe experience hair loss.

Hair Loss is a very common problem. You would be amazed to know that about half of the men and around 20% of the women under the age of 50, get affected by hair thinning or hair loss. Now you might ask why hair loss is so pervasive? The most common condition that affects most people at some point in their lives is hair loss without scarring of the scalp.

Since there are many types of hair loss, finding the main cause can be challenging. But in modern days, the top three variables are stress, inflammation and hormones.

Common balding in both men and women is due to the effect of testosterone metabolites in genetically susceptible hair follicles.

Alopecia areata is a form of hair loss produced by the autoimmune destruction of hair follicles in local areas of the skin. Telogen Effluvium is another common type of hair loss which occurs after any form of physical and mental stress, commonly like postpartum, after exams etc.

Lets first discuss Male Pattern Baldness and its Symptoms

It is a type of hair loss in men that begins with hair thinning from the scalp.

● Also known as androgenetic alopecia, it occurs with age due to changes in hormone levels.

● Genetics also play a major role in this.

● Balding can begin in men as early as in teenage years.


  • In this, the hair at the temples or the top of the head begin to shed.
  • The hairline often recedes in an “M” shape.
  • In some cases, people may also have coin-sized bald patches.
  • It may occur after a physical or emotional shock.
  • A handful of hair may come out while combing or washing hair.

Now let us know about Hair Loss in Women

Similar to men, there are several factors that are known to cause hair loss in women. Few of them are genetics, childbirth, diet, over-processing and styling, and menopause.


  • It is more scattered and less noticeable as compared to men
  • Hair thins generally on the top and crown of the scalp
  • It begins with widening through the center hair part
  • The front hairline remains unaffected
  • Though the hair loss progresses gradually, in rarest of the rare cases it does progress to total baldness as is seen in men.

Treatments available for Hair Loss

Though there are many options and cosmetic treatments available for hair loss.

But here at Skin Decor, you get a customized treatment protocol for hair loss depending on the type and severity. We provide a combination of hair serums addressing the concerns to deal with the deficiencies. These serums and multivitamins are rich in biotin.

Growth Factor Therapy: This is the latest therapy done with state of the art technology in our clinic wherein the growth of ‘baby collagen’ in the scalp is encouraged using a small tool that creates micro-channels in the scalp creating tiny injuries. Use of serum helps to clear the pores and detox, which further allows healthier hair growth.

Mesotherapy: Under this treatment, at Skin Decor, hair nutrients like vitamins and amino acids are infused into the scalp. They act on the epidermis, dermal connective tissue and circulation thus stimulating the mesoderm layer and encouraging hair growth and promoting new hair production.

Hair transplant: In cases of irreversible hair loss, there is the option of surgical hair transplant which can give you a whole new look.
