Does hair loss run in families?

Hereditary-pattern baldness is one of the most common causes of hair loss. Hereditary-pattern baldness is a natural condition caused by some combination of genetics, hormone levels and the aging process. Almost all men and women will notice some hair as they grow older. However, almost 40% of men and women will develop a more obvious condition. Hair loss usually begins during the 20s or 30s but in women sometimes it may become more severe after menopause. 

Testosterone is the main hormone which affects the hair. When hormonal changes take place, the normal cycle of hair growth changes, resulting in shorter, thinner hair. Eventually, hair growth in certain parts of the scalp stops entirely, which causes the typical pattern of hair loss. There is a common misconception that hair loss is inherited from the mother’s side of the family. However, studies show that both parents’ genes contribute to a hair loss condition. 

Hereditary-pattern baldness is diagnosed by both its pattern and the history of a similar type of hair loss affecting family members. Regardless of the cause of hair loss, losing your hair can be distressing and hard to deal with. 

A lot of research has gone into understanding hair loss as well as hair loss prevention and treatment options. As a result, there are many different options both for prevention and restoration. Even though some shampoos and medicine options have proven to temporarily slow down hair loss, the most effective method to combat hair loss once and for all is a hair transplantation. Our SLC Fendi Technique is a minimally invasive procedure that guarantees you about the full re-growth of your hair – far more than can be achieved with any other method.

We offer free consultation and we can provide significant information to us concerning your hair loss problem. The assessment is of course free of charge and does not in any way oblige you to book a hair transplantation session at the Swiss Luxury Clinic. We want you to be the best version of yourself. We are here to help. Let us be part of it!
