The hair loss classification was created to discuss the END stage of hair loss. Many people will thin their hair as they get to their END stage. Of interest, the Class 7 pattern, the most advanced pattern, usually is present by the time a man reaches his late 20s because the genes for hair loss are very strong. Young men who have a Class 3 pattern of hair loss, when checked with the HAIRCHECK instrument, often show thinning elsewhere on their scalp that they can’t see and may not see for years because it can be a slow process. A good doctor who sees a young man under 25 develops a MASTER PLAN for him that will follow the changes I just discussed above, offering transplants only after the man is 25 or 26 if it fits. Medications like finasteride as well as topical or oral minoxidil work to stop or reverse the hair loss, so a good relationship with a doctor who has built a Master Plan for you is essential to your future well-being. The use of the HAIRCHECK instrument has great value in reporting the degree to which your hair loss exists that may not be obvious to the naked eye.
