As board certified dermatologists at The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration and Research, Dr. Edmond Griffin and I try to take every opportunity to educate patients about hair loss prevention and hair restoration treatments. To provide an added resource for those interested in learning more about hair loss, we regularly discuss various hair loss topics on our YouTube channel. Recently, I shared my thoughts on the important differences between male pattern and female pattern hair loss.
In this video, I discuss the most common form of hair loss, androgenetic alopecia, or inherited pattern baldness. I address how male pattern hair loss and female pattern hair loss differ in presentation, explaining how both forms of hair loss progress and highlighting the distinct differences between the two patterns. I then discuss the underlying causes that lead to pattern baldness, mentioning both the genetic and hormonal components and how they seem to point to intrinsic differences between the male and female forms of the condition.
Watch this video to learn more about this common form of hair loss and the individual hair restoration options that are available.
