THE DEGREE OF HAIR LOSS

Mar 23, 2021

The NORWOOD SCALE indicates the degree of hair loss in men. The greater the hair loss, the higher the value, the number.

Hair loss in men in most cases begins with the withdrawal of the hairline in combination with balding on the crown (the vertex) on top of the head. In most cases hair loss in men starts with the retraction of the hairline in combination with the balding on the crown (the vertex) on top of the head. This type of hair loss is Alopecia Androgenetica and occurs in about 70% of men. In my practice men come where this started at the age of 23, for example.

The SAVIN SCALE indicates the degree of hair loss in women. Also on this scale are values ​​where a low value indicates the least hair loss and a high value the most. It can also be seen that hair loss in women has a different development than in men.

In the woman, the hair loss begins at the parting, which widens and then affects the entire upper part of the head. The hairline remains intact in the woman in all cases. Only not with other forms of hair loss. The hair disorder pictured here concerns Alopecia Androgenetics but other forms such as Alopecia Areata or Universalis develop in a different way. In my other blog I tell you more about this.
