Hair loss in men is known as androgenic alopecia or ‘male pattern baldness’. It can start in the early twenties and it typically takes 10-20 years for a man to go bald, although some men will bald in less than 5 years. Male pattern baldness typically starts with the hair line receeding at the front, this then progresses to hair loss in the crown area causing a central bald patch and results in eventual enlargement of the central patch and the frontal hair loss such that they join together and leave just a rim around the base of the scalp. It is estmiated that male pattern hair loss affects over 50% of men over the age of 50 and that some 12 million men in the UK are affected by some degree of hair loss.
Women can also be affected by androgenic hair loss. In women the pattern of hair loss tends to be at the crown. Women are most affected after the menopause but approximately 13% of women have some degree of hair thinning before the menopause. Women can benefit from the same medical treatments for hair loss as men can. These treatments are clinically proven not only to stop hair loss progression but also to achieve hair regrowth.
Androgenic hair loss in men and women is due to a change in the hair cycle due to an increased sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Hair follicles convert the hormone testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that attaches to hair follicles and causes them to shrink and eventually shorten and thin. Over time the follicles become dysfunctional and hair no longer grows. Treatments for hair loss prevent DHT’s effects on the hair follicle.

Dr Ward always gets it just right with my treatments and ensures that they look subtle and natural, just the way i like. I started on the Obagi skin care programme and since then there has been no looking back.. Obagi is the best kept secret in anti-ageing!![Jennifer, Kent ]
I often model on Dr Jo’s Botox and fillers course and its great to see her pass on her knowledge and enthusiasm to other professionals. She is clearly highly respected in this industry but what is wonderful is that she hasnt lost that lovely personal and warm touch. This is what sets her apart..Its always a pleasure to be involved”[Kate, Surrey ]
Dr Ward was the first person to really take my son’s acne seriously.. it was like a breath of fresh air..Thank you for listening and for understanding how acne can affect so much in a young person’s life. I highly recommend Doctor Jo Ward to anyone who has struggled in silence with a skin problem”[Jane, Surrey ]
