Hair loss can effect anyone, anytime, regardless of socio-economic status, race, religious or sexual preference or gender. If you start noticing hair loss, or male-pattern balding (women experience this phenomenon too), when is the right time to get help?

Teens and 20’s- Most often, when a person in their younger years notices hair loss, they will opt for one or more of a few responses:

  1. Ignoring the problem. This is easiest by wearing hats, hairpieces or using creative styling techniques.
  2. Over the counter or prescription aides. The most common options would be topical creams, oils, medications, doctor office treatments or even shampoos.
  3. Hair restoration procedure. Most transplant specialists will try to dissuade younger patients from having a procedure at this time in a patients’ life. In order to fully assess the viability and effectiveness of a hair restoration procedure, the consultant must estimate the patient’s future hair loss pattern. This can be difficult to assess because hair loss is progressive, and full balding has not yet typically occurred. The consultant will also need to take into consideration the long-term stability of the donor hair area. Again, this is difficult to do when consulting a youthful patient. Though procedures can be, and are, done in the younger years; most consultants will discourage this method unless severe hair loss has occurred and other criteria is met. As a long-term solution, the transplanted areas will continue to grow after a procedure, but the non-transplanted areas may experience future thinning or balding, which could lead to an unnatural appearance down the road.

If you are in your teens or 20’s and are considering options to reduce or interrupt hair loss, please see a professional, experienced specialist in hair restoration for a comprehensive consultation. At Hair Restoration Specialists (, we can guide you in the best direction to get the results you desire.

30’s, 40’s and 50’s- Most specialists in the hair restoration industry will suggest that these are the best years in which to achieve optimum results when looking to combat hair loss. Where the same options apply as listed above, at these ages, there is most often a stable supply of donor hair, hair restoration procedures can have the most natural and aesthetically pleasing results, and most patients who have opted to move forward with their desired solution are thankful that they can enjoy looking their best while still feeling “young”! For those in the dating world, a full head of hair tends to widen the net you cast. Most in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s find they are reaching, or have reached financially stability, thus opening up more options as to the treatment to choose.
