Does Age Matter for Hair Restoration?
For surgical hair restoration, your age is a factor. Hair restoration treatments can be performed on a person as early as age 21, although the most common age range for hair restoration is between 30 and 60. By the age of 30, men see the effects of male pattern baldness starting to appear, with thinner hair at the crown and a receding hairline. The bottom line is that if you are unhappy to be living with hair loss, Dr. Heil can help – no matter what your age.
At what age do people typically start losing hair?
The age that people typically start losing hair varies between men and women and from person to person. There are cases where people noticed their hair loss start at the age of 15, and some who never seem to suffer from hair loss – a rare, lucky person. In general, men who are genetically predisposed to experience hair loss start noticing their hair loss in their mid to late twenties.
The hair loss becomes more and more apparent over time, with the most noticeable changes appearing as they reach their 40s and 50s. Women are more likely to start noticing hair loss in their thirties, although this appears as an overall thinning, rather than balding areas. Excessive shedding can begin, with hair becoming thinner and finer, with the scalp becoming visible at the part.
What causes hair loss?
Hair loss can be due to several factors, including the following:
- Hormonal changes
- Environmental factors
- A side effect of certain medications
These can all take effect at any time during your life. Excessive hair loss is often a great source of insecurity.
