Alopecia

Alopecia in women develops at the frontal and superior level of the head, in spite of that, it develops in a more diffuse form than male baldness and the integrity of the first line is usually maintained, which means that, in general, there is no tickets. Its evolution occurs more slowly than in men because it rarely reaches such advanced stages.
Many researchers have tried to classify androgenetic alopecia in women to establish the degree of affectation and to be able to unify therapeutic, medical and / or surgical criteria. But it was not until 1977 when Dr. Ludwig presented a scale with 3 degrees of evolution. Currently, this scale is the one that is universally accepted.
Women also suffer from hair loss, and we know from the experience we have had can be really daunting. Female hair loss not only occurs in post-menopausal women, it can also be due to events such as pregnancy, or some disease that has as sequence hair loss.
In women, just like men, the most likely cause of hair loss is androgenic alopecia. However, it develops and evolves differently than men. That is why in fact another metric is used to identify the state of alopecia; the Ludwig scale.

What is the Ludwig scale?

Type I
In this phase there is only a small hair loss or it becomes thinner. It is important to go to the DHI experts in this phase to be able to revoke the effects produced so far.
Type II
Significantly decreases the volume of hair. In the midline there is a receding of the hair, leaving an important extension without hair. If you are in this phase, the hair transplant would be a good option.
Type III
There is a significant loss of hair on the top of the head and a considerable extension without hair on the line of separation average. If you are in this phase, it would be good to go urgently to the DHI specialists for a professional hair treatment with scientific methods.
