Is baldness genetic?

Calvície é genética?

Did you know that baldness is genetic?

Because it is a dominant autosomal genetic transmission, baldness only needs a gene coming from one of the parents to manifest in the child. If the father has a degree of baldness the child of this couple has a 50% chance of manifesting this condition, if both parents have baldness (the positive maternal side may be the presence of baldness in the maternal grandfather) the chances of Children have baldness rises to 75%.

Sexual hormones play an important role in AAG (androgenetic alopecia). Testosterone interacts with an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase type II, present in the follicles, transforming into dihydrotestosterone, or DHT.

It is known that men have 40% more receptors for 5 alpha reductase in the frontal region and that they have 3.5 times more 5 alpha reductase than women. This explains why most of the time male pattern baldness starts from the frontal region.
DHT is 5 times more potent than testosterone, and it acts on the hair follicle leading to miniaturization of the hair. Because of the increase in testosterone at the onset of puberty, it is common for many of the AAG frames to begin at this time. In both bald and non-bald patients the amount of testosterone is the same, the highest in the bald is DHT.

Testosterone remains unchanged in balding patients. What occurs is a greater uptake of DHT by the cellular receptors in the hair roots in certain regions of the scalp of patients with genetic inheritance for baldness.

Normally, in the lateral and posterior regions of the scalp it does not have androgenic receptors in the capillary cells and therefore it does not have DHT uptake and consequently does not have hair loss

Baldness or androgenetic alopecia, affects men as well as women, can create psychological problems, embarrassment and social difficulties.
Hair transplantation is the only efficient and natural resource for hair regrowth in areas of baldness. Performed by F.U.E. (Follicular Unit Extraction) that can be Robotic or Manual. Put a link pointing to the techniques. These techniques are the most advanced and efficient because they have no cuts, linear scars, intense pain and points to be removed

Through these techniques, we achieve a better aesthetics and rejuvenation. In addition, to regain self-esteem and satisfaction of having the hair back. The robotic hair implant technique has revolutionized hair surgery. It is a new concept that allows to implant up to 3000 or more UF (Follicular Units) that is equivalent to 6000 or 8.000 threads, depending on the donor area of ​​the individual. Follicular Units (FU) are capillary groups that have 2,3,4 or more twin strands mixed in the hair mass of the scalp. Depending on the prevalence of the type of UF in the scalp, we will have a greater or lesser amount of transplanted wires and the aesthetic result of the surgery.

The procedure of deploying hair consists of the removal of wires from a region less prone to baldness, called the donor area, which are implanted in the bald part, called the receiving area.
After about three months a new hair is born that will grow naturally, being able to be cut, smoothed and colored as in the other regions.

These wires, because they do not present genetics, do not evolve again into baldness.
