HEALTH EDUCATION ADVICE

a/ What is androgenetic alopecia?

Normally, hair has a lifespan of 3 to 6 years and 50 to 100 hairs fall out per day.

More significant hair loss can occur seasonally (in autumn) or after childbirth: this loss is normal, transitory and there is no need to start treatment.

Alopecia is defined as hair loss of more than 100 hairs per day.

There are two types of alopecia:

- acute alopecia,

- chronic alopecia.

Acute alopecia (sudden hair loss over a short period of time) can be diffuse or in patches (alopecia) and is most often due to known causes (aggressive hair care, poor general condition, poorly balanced weight loss treatment, certain medications, psychological shock, stress, etc.). These acute alopecias should not be treated with this medicine.

Chronic (long-term) alopecia is almost always diffuse. They are sometimes due to a specific disease (thyroid, metabolic, etc.) and should not be treated with this drug. In the vast majority of cases, these chronic alopecias are of poorly known origin, most often hereditary in nature: this is androgenetic alopecia. Only this type of alopecia can be treated with LOBAMINE CYSTEINE.

b/ How to recognize androgenetic alopecia?

* In women: androgenetic alopecia is diffuse: there is an overall decrease in hair density. The hair becomes progressively thinner from the parting.

* In men: androgenetic alopecia begins with a balding of the temporal gulfs. Then a slight baldness appears at the top of the skull. These two hairless areas will progressively enlarge: androgenetic alopecia progressively evolves towards baldness.

c/ Some additional information

- At the beginning of the treatment, over a short period of time, it is possible that hair loss increases. These hairs were destined to fall out and do so more rapidly. This is a normal phenomenon, continue the treatment.

- The first hair to grow will be soft, fluffy and not very visible. As you continue your treatment, they may change and become thicker.
