Hair Loss in Men and WomenScandinavian Hair Institute

A Closer Look at Vein Complications: Rupture and Bleeding

Welcome to Scandinavian Hair Institute, a premier Norwegian clinic providing medical travel to patients in the United States. We specialize in effective hair loss treatments, including advanced hair transplantation and medical therapies. Our team comprises experienced hair doctors and a dedicated dermatologist with expertise in skin and hair diseases.

What is the Most Common Cause of Hair Loss?

Hair loss in men is primarily attributed to genetic factors and aging. Scientifically known as androgenic alopecia, this form of hair loss affects a vast majority of men at some point during their lives. Androgenic alopecia is caused by the male sex hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which gradually shrinks hair follicles over time.

In women, hair loss is typically associated with aging, especially after menopause. Additionally, hair loss can be triggered by childbirth and breastfeeding, resulting in noticeable hair shedding. Some may experience hair thinning, specifically on the top of the head, while others may notice overall thinning. Unlike male hair loss, female hair thinning rarely leads to baldness.

Hair loss in both women and men can also be caused by:

  • Mental stress
  • Prolonged stress
  • Diseases like alopecia areata
  • Eating disorders or malnutrition
  • Chemical treatments
  • Scalp skin diseases

Understanding Hair Loss Onset

The timing and progression of hair loss can vary among individuals. While some may experience early hair thinning, others may retain thick hair well into their 40s. Hair loss often begins with more prominent folds and thinning of hair on the top of the head, eventually leading to complete baldness for many men.

Hereditary Hair Loss - A Complex Inheritance

Many people wonder which parent is "to blame" for hereditary hair loss. In the past, researchers believed that male hair loss originated from the mother's side of the family. However, recent studies have shown that hereditary hair loss is a complex trait that can originate from both the mother's and father's side. Thus, predicting hair loss solely based on maternal family history is not accurate.

Hair Loss – Not Just a Superficial Problem

While some may dismiss hair loss as "just hair," for many individuals, it can be a significant mental strain. Thick, healthy hair has long been associated with youthfulness, and losing hair can impact one's sense of identity. Hair loss, especially at a young age, may lead to feelings of looking older than one is and feeling different from peers.

Many people resort to hair weaves and headgear to conceal thinning hair, reflecting the emotional toll hair loss can take.

How Does Hair Loss Affect Us?

Hair loss is a common problem affecting both men and women, significantly impacting self-esteem, self-image, and overall well-being. The aesthetics of a full and healthy head of hair are often associated with vitality and youthfulness. Experiencing hair loss may make individuals feel less attractive and affect their self-esteem in personal and professional settings.

Coping with hair loss is an emotional journey, and it's essential to understand that such feelings are natural and valid.

Can Hair Loss be Treated?

Yes, hair loss can be treated effectively with a range of options, including both preventive measures and permanent treatments.

Hair Transplantation – A Permanent Solution

The Scandinavian Hair Institute offers cutting-edge medical and permanent treatments for hair loss, including advanced hair transplantation techniques like Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).

Facts about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)

In most cases, we recommend Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) for its precision and natural results. FUE involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor area (typically the back of the head) and transplanting them to areas with thinning hair. With FUE, there is no strip removed instead each follicle is removed separately and so there are no stitches and thus no linear scar.

Hair Transplantation in Comfortable Surroundings

Our experienced hair doctors have been performing hair transplantation since 1995 and are dedicated to achieving natural, beautiful results for each patient. We provide a comfortable and relaxing environment at our clinic in Oslo, Norway with convenient parking spaces right outside.
