Is Hair Loss More Common Than Ever Before?

Have you ever noticed that it seems like more people than ever are bald or balding? Some shave their heads because they like the look, but many do so to cover up a receding hairline. Regardless, you may have thought to yourself that it seems like hair loss is more prevalent today than it ever has been in the past.

One study conducted by a UK hair loss clinic discovered an exponential rise in hair loss sufferers between the ages of 21 and 30. Hair loss can be caused by a number of things, including medication, health conditions, environmental factors and even hormone imbalance. Because of this it's hard to know exactly what is causing this surge in hair loss at a younger age.

Experts believe that stress is one of the biggest factors of when genetic male pattern baldness begins to show. Normally, the hair loss would show itself in the 40s on average, but now boys as young as 16 are noticing receding hair lines and thinning of hair all over the scalp.

When you consider stress as a trigger for early hair loss, it just makes sense that more men and women are noticing hair thinning and loss at earlier ages. According to a study released last year by the American Psychological Association, Americans are more stressed than they have been in over 10 years.

Thankfully, hair restoration has come a long way over the years. Dr. Foster specializes in performing FUE hair restoration, which removes individual hair follicles from the back of the scalp and transfers them to the balding areas. This method produces the most natural-looking results, and our patients are consistently amazed by the results.
