Dealing with hair loss is not easy and not something anyone wants to go through, no matter the age. However insignificant hair loss may seem to those who have not experienced it, hair loss can be an overwhelming disease that chews away at a person’s self-esteem, and leads to considering hair restoration in Los Angeles – or any city. Approximately 40% of men will suffer from hair loss, and many of those who suffer from it feel alone and isolated, it is still considered a minor problem, even though many consider a hair transplant. Mainstream media often portrays balding men as either physically faint, or grossly overweight, and indeed many of the images that we are bombarded with on a daily basis do nothing but reinforce the notion that a healthy head of hair is considered desirable and sexy.
Gratefully, female hair loss is not a subject to ridicule and torment in the fashion arena compared to male hair loss, for the most part, can be particularly disturbing for a woman as well. Many females who visit our Los Angeles hair restoration clinic are very emotional and vulnerable about their hair loss. It may be harder for a woman to come to terms with hair loss, as the issue isn’t as easily and openly discussed as male hair loss. People suffering from hair loss as a result of disease or medical treatment can often find themselves having to explain their situation to work colleagues and acquaintances as a result of the hair loss – when they would have preferred to keep their condition quiet from all but their immediate circle. On the other hand, a male will begin to see the onset of male pattern baldness from his early twenties and on. Most males at this age may still be seeking their mates so this development can be a catastrophic blow, often leading to mild psychiatric problems as a result – socializing less, avoiding exercise and sports when contact with other people is likely, wearing hats constantly, overcompensating with facial hair, growing hair long on one side to brush over the balding area, etc. While these activities may seem trivial, they are nonetheless triggered by the emotional state of the person and their objectiveness to their hair loss situation.
