The Norwood Scale
The 7 stages of Androgenetic Alopecia in Men
There are different types of alopecia. The most common, hereditary androgenetic alopecia, causes a decrease in hair volume and progressive, permanent hair loss. Other types of alopecia can be caused by medical treatments, such as chemotherapy, or by skin problems, and are localised in certain areas. Baldness is caused by many factors and even when stress, tobacco use or nutritional deficiencies are involved, heredity is an overriding factor. Today, more than 50% of men over the age of 50 are affected, many of whom find this change traumatic. DHI has perfected permanent solutions to help these men, solutions that go beyond medication
The Ludwig Scale
The 3 Stages of Androgenetic Baldness in Women
In general, female pattern baldness almost never leads to a loss of all hair. Often related to a hormonal imbalance, hair loss affects 1 in every 5 women over the age of 50. In contrast to baldness in men, it never involves the whole head and tends to cause thinning rather that generalised hair loss. This is diffuse alopecia: hair density decreases and its mass thins out, causing very real distress to every woman affected.
Among the different types of alopecia, the androgenetic type is most common and is usually due to stress, medical treatments, or vitamin deficiencies. “Traction” alopecia is caused by repeated handling and by wearing braids or hair extensions too often. DHI offers a variety of solutions, tailored to each patient’s needs, for women who feel that their femininity is being undermined by thinning hair and hair loss. This hair replacement method is done by injecting hairs into the affected areas and is described in detail in the section: DHI Method.
Why did we develop the UDSA diagnostic system?
OF PEOPLE OPT FOR TREATMENT
No Treatment Without Cause
The research advisory board of the DHI Global Medical Group found that 67.3% of men and women who seek hair restoration treatments do so without a proper medical diagnosis. This means that nearly 3 out of every 4 people may be paying for treatment they don’t need.
DHI Philippines believes in the principle of ‘No Treatment without Cause’. We make sure that each of our patients are fully aware of their medical status as regards hair loss and alopecia –and we do this using the Unique Diagnostic System for Alopecia (UDSA) developed by DHI Global.
UDSA: Diagnosing with Precision
The Unique Diagnostic System for Alopecia (UDSA) is the first step of the DHI Total Care System™. It is a comprehensive, top-down approach to diagnosis that builds a treatment plan around the patient’s psychology, the mathematics behind a potential procedure, key medical factors, and finally the artistry that would go into the treatment.
THE TREATMENT PLAN:
DHI Philippines’ in-house specialists are fully aware of the role that hair plays in shaping their patients’ self-image. In line with this, patient psychology and self-esteem factor into the development of each unique treatment plan.
Precision is key to a successful treatment, especially where the density and volume of hair are concerned. Mathematical models and projections are used to determine ideal donor sites and to prepare long-term treatment plans.
Each patient’s medical background factors into their treatment. Exhaustive measures are taken to ensure that every step of the process aligns with each patient’s medical needs.
Every DHI specialist is trained to employ sharp aesthetic sensibilities when designing treatments to restore their patients’ hairlines –as such, the final “look” of each successful treatment is planned as early as the diagnosis.
