Hair loss, or balding, is a common human trait to be found across the world. Globally, 70% of men will experience hair loss during their lifetime. On the other hand, in women the figure is around 40%. The yawning gap between these figures across genders, for many, may seen unfathomable. However, once we are aware of the fact that men are more prone to androgenic alopecia, then the figures are understandable.
What is Androgenetic Alopecia?
Androgenetic alopecia is genetic and predetermined at birth. The condition manifests itself as a result of and over production of androgens. Androgens, quite simply, are the sex hormones that bring about the onset of puberty whilst also affecting growth development and reproductive health.
Both men and women produce androgens, but the production in men far exceeds that of women. Commonly associated with the male gender is the androgen testosterone, males produce far more of this hormone than women. Whereas the female produces more estrogen than the male.
Androgenic alopecia is more commonly known as pattern baldness, this is because the balding tends to follow defined patterns. Typically, balding begins above the temple area and progresses upward to where the hairline starts to recede. This pattern is typically characteristic of male balding.
Female sufferers of androgenetic alopecia experience a very different pattern of hair loss. In women the condition usually takes the form of the hair thinning all across the head. It is very rare that the condition in women will lead to total baldness.
What Causes Hair loss?
However, hair loss in both men and women is not exclusively caused by androgenic alopecia, there are many other factors that can cause both men and women to lose their hair. Other underlying medical conditions can cause hair loss, as can medication being taken as a result of a medical issue.
Our environment and lifestyle can also play a part in hair loss. Certain forms of atmospheric pollution can cause hair loss. A poor diet and inadequate nutrition are also likely to result in a person losing their hair, as is living under high levels of stress. Fashion and vanity can also have a negative effect on a person’s head of hair. Many people use a variety of chemical concoctions on their hair in the pursuit of beautification with prolonged use leading to hair loss.
Hair loss is most certainly not a straight forward issue. Severity and causes vary considerably. The majority of hair loss cases are still predetermined by genetics, however, hair loss due to other factors, such as environment and lifestyle, are on the increase. Medical professionals specializing in hair loss continue to develop new treatments that keep pace with the ever-changing root causes of the condition.
People across the world have, in recent years, become far more self-aware and self-conscious of their image and appearance. As a part of this consciousness hair loss has become an issue for greater and greater numbers of the world’s population.

Assessment and Treatment
Every client undergoes a personal assessment of their condition and of their general health. From the initial assessment a tailored program of therapy and treatment can then be devised for the optimum benefit of the individual.
Each client will then have the procedures fully explained to them by one of the center’s professional practitioners. Following this the client will be advised to have a blood test to expose any underlying medical condition which may be causing or exasperating the existing state of hair loss.
Hormone tests are also advised to determine the existing hormone levels of the client. Should there be an issue with the levels of hormones the doctor can recommend the correct treatment method to adjust and restore the correct hormone balance. Having the correct levels of hormones creates the ideal platform for hair restoration.
The treatment process begins with scalp cleansing. This is done with the Bioscor Scalp Jet Wash Machine. This process is designed to clean deep into the scalp pores. The doctor will then apply the specially developed serum to the scalp. The mesoporation machine then maximizes the absorption of the serum into the scalp whilst also stimulating blood flow.
Using the Bioscor scalp laser the hair roots are stimulated. The laser operates at a wavelength of 1550 nanometers. The root stimulation improves the condition of existing hair roots by 20% whilst also promoting new root growth to be stronger and healthier. This process can be undertaken along with other hair loss treatment at the center.
Bioscor LED Light Therapy
Further root stimulation and regrowth strength is obtained via light therapy. The Bioscor LED Light Therapy is made up of red and yellow light. The light emitter is positioned above the head and is of no discomfort to the client. The red light, operating at 660 nanometers, increases blood circulation and metabolism rate in the illuminated area.
The yellow light, operating at 590 nanometers, promotes collogen production. The promoted production of collagen increases the firmness of the scalp. This, in turn, improves the nervous system within each of the scalp’s cells. Each of the treatments lasts around 20 minutes and is entirely painless.
Each step of the process is integral in creating the perfect platform for strong healthy hair regrowth. The Bioscor International hair regrowth treatment process is proven to stimulate new hair growth in both men and women and has become the world’s leader in the field. The partnership of Bioscor and Samitivej Hospital has led to the Hair Restoration Medical Center in Bangkok to become Thailand’s most celebrated center for hair regrowth.
