Hair loss due to androgen, which is known as the male hormone, starts in the vertex region and moves forward.
WHAT IS VERTEX?
Vertex is a latin word which means ‘summit, peak’. As the health term it is used as ‘the peak of the head’. In general, the opening in the anterior and / or peak area of the scalp is called ‘male pattern hair loss’. Hair loss due to androgen, which is known as the male hormone, starts in the vertex region and moves forward.
Although it is seen in mainly males, women can also suffer from this malaise.
How is male type hair loss prevented?
Generally, at genetic characteristics and male pattern hair loss in the vertex region the blood circulation is less and accordingly less hair follicles are fed. The beginning of hair loss in this region can be observed in adolescence. 30% of men in their 30s of this type of shedding is seen and with the age of 50 this rate rises up to 50%. Since the reasons for occurrence cannot be eliminated, natural hair loss can be partially slowed down but not completely prevented.
How is male type hair loss treatment done?
The most ideal and aesthetic appearance of the person is possible with hair transplantation. The angle of the hair in the vertex region has its own dynamics and has different angles. Because of the hair turns; hair transplantation should be performed by adhering to existing directions. 1500 – 2000 graft hair transplantation is generally sufficient in different angles and successive directions and can be planned with one transplantation session. Hair reaches its most natural form at the end of 12 -14 months. As the scalp is harder and thicker, it is more difficult to feed the hair follicles, so the hair follicles’ length of time increases. The one-time application is long-lasting. But if the receding begins again; a second operation can be planned by saving time with micropigmentation.
