We helped Lucie with a severe case of Androgenetic alopecia

Lucie came to see us for an initial consultation back in March 2014 and was diagnosed with severe androgenetic alopecia, also known as female-pattern hair loss and with severe telogen effluvium.

Androgenetic alopecia (female pattern baldness) in women is often linked to hormonal changes with hair loss following events such as menopause, childbirth or as a result of stopping or starting oral contraceptive pills.

How the problem manifests

Hair loss is generally more uniform over the scalp than in the male counterpart, but it also results from a complex chemical reaction when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts the testosterone in the system into DHT or dihydrotestosterone. The hair follicles are genetically predisposed to be oversensitive to DHT and become smaller and smaller with time, leading to eventual hair loss.

Lucie’s hair before and after treatment

Telogen effluvium occurs when the hair’s growing phase is interrupted prematurely, causing the hair follicles to enter the telogen (resting) phase of the hair cycle earlier than normal.

Following the normal cyclic pattern, diffuse shedding of the hair begins two to four months later. When this happens, there is not enough hair left in the anagen phase or growing phase, resulting in diffuse thinning of the hair. Telogen effluvium can be triggered by anaemia.
