Hair loss in women is just that - when a woman has a sudden and heavy loss of hair. In general, humans lose between 50 and 100 hairs per day. Hair loss is part of a natural balance - some hair falls out while others grow in. When the balance is disrupted - when hair falls out and less hair grows - hair loss occurs. Hair loss is different from hair loss. The medical term for alopecia areata is "alopecia".
Hair grows on most surfaces of your skin, not on your palms, soles, lips, or eyelids. Short, thin and light hair is called vellus hair. Terminal/androgen hair is thicker, darker and longer.
At Dr Shreeshail's Aesthetic Laser and Hair Clinic, we perform a variety of treatments for hair loss in our patients.
