Anagen Effluvium from Robotic Hair Restoration of Long Island

People lose their hair for many reasons. The most common reason is androgenetic alopecia, which is known by most people as male or female pattern hair loss. It is a condition that takes place over time with hair loss forming in the crown or temple area for men and in the front area of the scalp for women. Another major cause of hair loss is called effluvium, which is a condition where hair usually sheds more quickly. The most common form is telogen effluvium, which occurs during a point in the hair growth cycle when hair tends not to grow. Another type of effluvium called anagen effluvium occurs when hair is in its growth stage.
