HAIR LOSS IN MEN

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 skin problems or medical treatments like chemotherapy, and these are often localized 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 Norwood Scale

1. The first stage of male pattern baldness is a receding of the hairline, beginning at the temples.

The Norwood Scale

2. The second stage is known as type II baldness. During this stage, the hairline continues to recede and may be accompanied by thinning of the frontal area.

3. This pattern becomes more pronounced in the third stage: the hairline at the temples recedes further, and the frontal hairline may also recede.

6. At stage six, the band of hair at the back of the head becomes narrower as more hair is lost from the crown.

The Norwood Scale

7. The final stage of alopecia in men is “Hippocratic” baldness, where only a low wreath of hair around the sides and back of the head remains.

HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN

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.

The Ludwig Scale

1-1 - 1-3. It begins with diffuse alopecia, a mild thinning of the hair, initially around the parting area, but the frontal hairline is unaffected

The Ludwig Scale

1-4 - 2-2. Thinning of the hair around the parting area worsens, hair loss is most obvious at the crown, but an unaffected band of hair that extends at least 3 cm behind the frontal hairline remains.

The Ludwig Scale

3. At the final stage, almost no hair remains along the parting, the alopecia extends over most of the crown, and although the frontal hairline remains, the band has narrowed to a depth of less than 3 cm.

WHY WE DEVELOPED THE UDSA DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM

67.3%

Opt for Treatment Without Diagnosis

75%

Pay for Treatment They Do Not Need

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.

USDA: 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

Psychological Factor

Psychological

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.

Medical Factor

Medical

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.

Mathematical Factor

Mathematical

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.

Artistic Factor

Artistic

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.
