Ask Juvida – Norwood-Hamilton Scale

Dear Juvida,

I’ve noticed in the past year that the sides, middle, and front hair have become thinner than my back. I’ve always had thick hair. There is no balding in my family. I am 25 year old male. I suffer from dermatitis on my scalp and face but it is controlled pretty well. I just want to know what I can do to get my hair back.  Patient A


Juvida’s reply:

Men generally tend to lose hair in a pattern starting at the temples and crown with hair starting to thin and become less dense over the whole upper part of the head in some cases. It is advised to start treatment as soon as you notice the onset of hair loss. Hair transplant surgeons commonly use the Norwood Hamilton Scale to measure the progression or extent of hair loss.

After Norwood level V treatment with medication (Finasteride and Minoxidil) is very unlikely to work. The most common and best method to resolve any case of hair loss is with a combination of Hair transplant treatment and medication.

It is quite common to experience hair thinning in your mid 20s even though there is no history of balding in your family. We will be happy to meet you to discuss getting your hair back so please call 01756 456 016 to book your free consultation and begin your hair restoration process.
