What Are Genetic Baldness and Their Solution

The genetic baldness is scientifically called as the Androgenic alopecia. The male pattern baldness or the female pattern baldness occurs due to the effect of the genes and hormone that causes the occurrence of the severe hair loss condition. The genetic baldness affects around 60% of the total world population as both men and women get affected by the same. It has been scientifically found out that the issue of balding mainly occurs due to the effect of DHT (Di-hydro Testosterone) that are sensitive to all over the body and thus hair follicles get affected by the hormone DHT and a case of baldness occurs predominantly.

The hair transplant cost in India basically depends on the number of usable grafts that allows a person to receive the procedure at a very normal charge adheres to the best facilities and services confirm the great aesthetic effect of the procedure. The procedural success is wholly and solely depends on the number of grafts used in the procedure as it is a main concern in the surgery to offer the best results.

How Genetic Baldness Occurs?

The genetic baldness occurs due to the effect of the genes and hormone, DHT. Now, it is an important concern that how DHT formed and which factor is responsible for the formation of the same and thus, the researchers unravelled many things associated with the causative factor and found that an enzyme, named, 5-alpha-reductase is responsible for the same. The catalytic effect of 5-alpha-reductase causes the formation of DHT, which is sensitive towards hair follicles/roots and thus hair loss occurs with the symptoms of the miniaturization as well as the pattern baldness.
