What Is Alopecia?

Androgenic alopecia (also known as androgenetic alopecia, or AGA) is the hereditary type of alopecia (hair loss). The word androgenic refers to the androgen hormones that regulate hair growth in men and women. Although both men and women experience hereditary hair loss, they experience in different ways.

Alopecia in Men

  • In men, androgenic alopecia is synonymous with male pattern baldness: hair loss begins at the temples and extends back from the hairline in a distinctive “M” shape. The hair may also thin at the crown. The condition can lead to total baldness in men.

Alopecia in Women

  • In women, androgenic alopecia rarely causes complete baldness. The entire head of hair becomes thinner, especially at the hairline.

Alopecia Treatment

Drugs, such as ROGAINE® (minoxidil) and PROPECIA® (finasteride) and surgical methods, such as hair plug are commonly used to treat alopecia. However, most hair loss experts agree that it is easier to prevent hair loss than it is to regrow hair in follicles that are already dead or dormant.

So the first step in fighting alopecia is to recognize that you are at risk, either because of genetics or because of health factors, and then to take proactive steps to prevent further hair loss.
