Hair loss in men
A problem that affects many men, but especially men, is hair loss. 80% of men suffer from genetic hair loss. When receding hairlines appear, attempts are first made to stimulate hair growth with various tinctures, suitable shampoos and dietary supplements. However, these remedies do not reduce hair loss and the beard, which is important to many men, loses its attractiveness. This also has disadvantages in professional life, because a man without hair looks older. Having to do without a feature that one has been used to all his life leads to lowered self-confidence. Because of the feeling of insufficiency, there is a retreat in personal success and in social life. If you think that a toupee is the solution for you, you are mistaken. During sports activities, a toupee would prevent them.
What would be an effective solution? A permanent remedy can only be provided by a professional hair transplant. A professional natural hair transplant is necessary to permanently eliminate the problem.
Different forms of hair loss
Hereditary hair loss – androgenetic alopecia
2/3 of men and 50 % of women suffer from hereditary hair loss. The roots of the scalp hair, which are hypersensitive to androgens, shrink and healthy, strong hair can no longer grow. At first, the hair thins out in the area of the temples. The hairline recedes more and more until finally there is complete baldness. The sooner genetic hair loss begins in men, the faster and more severe the process.
the more rapid and severe the process.
Circular hair loss – Alopecia areata
The immune system reacts incorrectly and attacks the body’s own tissue. In some cases, the entire body hair can be affected. Areas affected by circular hair loss can heal spontaneously and the hair will grow back.
This type of hair loss occurs when the immune system reacts incorrectly and attacks the body’s own tissue. In some cases, the situation affects the entire body hair. With this type of hair loss, the affected areas can heal and the hair grows again.
Diffuse hair loss

hair thins and loses its density.
Focal hair loss with scarring
Scars form due to injuries or inflammations. The hair roots are permanently damaged in this area and no new hair grows back.
In this case, inflammation or injury leads to scars.Since the hair roots in this area are permanently damaged, new hair does not grow back.
The course of hair loss in men
The Hamilton scale shows the progression of hair loss in men. Hair loss whose cause is genetic begins in the twenties. At first, receding hairline areas form at the temples (stage 1). In the following years, hair loss occurs on the upper part of the back of the head, resulting in tonsure (stage 2). Finally, the hair-free zones merge, resulting in baldness (stage 3). Residual hair remains only in a horseshoe shape as a ring of hair at the back of the head. The remaining hair is horseshoe-shaped and remains as a ring of hair at the back of the head.
Therapy for hair loss in men
Since the concentration of the male sex hormone testosterone cannot be changed without side effects, attempts are made to stimulate the hair roots with autologous blood injections and to increase their vitality. No scientific evidence has been obtained on the success of this therapy. When hair tinctures, caffeine or medicinal herbs are used, there is a low probability of achieving the desired success.Proven efficacy Minoxidil, a drug used for the treatment of hypertension, has proven efficacy. The active ingredient contained in solutions and foam is applied directly to the scalp and massaged in. By applying the active ingredient minoxidil locally twice a day, the hair fuzz begins to thicken. If the rubs are started early, diffuse hair loss slows down. There are no side effects, such as increased formation of unwanted hair on other parts of the body. Blood pressure is insignificantly affected by local application.
The active ingredient finasteride is an alternative for the active ingredient finasteride. A growth of 17 additional hairs per square centimetre could be confirmed with permanent use. Finasteride inhibits the conversion of testosterone, the hair roots are not damaged as much. Dihydrotestosterone does not damage the hair roots as much, because finasteride only inhibits the conversion of testosterone. To reduce the possible side effects, treatments with medication should be carried out under medical supervision. Diffuse, hereditary hair loss can also be treated with a diode laser. The blood flow to the hair roots is stimulated by irradiation with infrared laser light and the supply of nutrients and energy is improved.
The irradiation, which is carried out twice a week at the beginning, activates the growth of stronger and healthier hair and is later carried out every 2 weeks and generally over 12 months. A fractional laser can be used for circular hair loss. The hair roots are stimulated to produce new hair by micro-injuries in the depth of the scalp. This increases the hair density and an improved hair fullness is achieved.
A holistic concept for the treatment of hair loss exists. Important aspects for the treatment of hair loss depend on a restoration of the acid-alkaline balance and an improved supply of minerals and trace elements to the body via micronutrients. The body is cleansed of unwanted substances and the self-healing powers are thus mobilised. Alkaline Natural Shampoo helps to break down acids on the scalp. It also supplies the scalp with vital substances. The effect of this alternative method has not been scientifically proven.
Final solution for hair loss in men
Reliable results for the regrowth of natural hair can only be achieved with natural hair transplantation. Hair follicles from a donor area in the back of the head are harvested using various methods. With the FUT method, ellipse-shaped strips of skin containing several hairs are harvested. With the FUE technique, individual grafts with 2 – 4 hairs are detached from the skin between the ears. The grafts, prepared in a nutrient solution, are placed in the recipient area, which has been prepared with micro-incisions. One year later after the procedure, there is permanent full hair.
Hair loss in women
Unwanted hair loss is not only a problem for men. Women also suffer from this problem. Although no pronounced receding hairline develops as in men, the hair in the area of the head becomes thinner and the hairline slips back. A high hairline is usually present from birth. This beauty problem in women often causes feelings of inferiority. It can cause them to withdraw from their circle of friends and depression can develop as a result. A hair transplant at Bank of Hair can eliminate this problem.
Hair transplant for women
Women are less often affected by hormonal, constitutional hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, than men. The dihydrotestosterone hormone plays only a subordinate role in women. Reduced aromatase activity leads to low levels of oestrogens. This causes the loss of hair to spread slowly from the middle parting towards the forehead and the hairline. Complete baldness rarely occurs.
Diffuse hair loss is associated with the formation of a high forehead. Circular hair loss is most often caused by autoimmune or metabolic diseases, such as diabetes or thyroid dysfunction, and stress. The immune system’s defence cells prevent new hair follicles from growing. Circular bald patches become visible all over the head. Scarring and injuries can also be the cause of hair loss…. There may also be other causes such as: Deficiency symptoms due to an unbalanced diet, metabolic diseases, hormonal fluctuations, intolerance of medication, stress.
When can a hair transplant be performed on women?
If there is hair loss of 50% and the hair is getting less and less, you are suitable for a hair transplant. Self-confidence is severely affected by this. As long as there is enough hair on other parts of the head for a hair transplant in women, the procedure can be performed. Before the operation, the concomitant disease and medications taken must be forwarded to the doctor.
What should be considered after a hair transplant for women?
If the Fue (Follicular Unit Extraction) method is used during hair transplantation, the patient can return to his or her daily life after 2 days. Thanks to this method, there is no extensive bleeding or swelling. The punctiform scars heal quickly and are no longer visible after a short time. After a few days, you can start doing sports again. You will need to keep your hair moisturised with a nutrient solution spray for the first few weeks. After three weeks, it is possible to wash the transplanted hair with a special shampoo. After 12 months, the final result will be achieved: you will achieve your desired natural looking and thick hair. The hair transplanted by Bank of Hair will remain permanently. Your hair loss problem is solved for good.
