Balding is the result of excessive hair loss, usually attributed to androgenetic alopecia.
But due to aging and other factors, hair loss can begin to surpass growth. Balding typically begins to appear at the top of the head, an area more susceptible to the effects of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) than other areas of the head. DHT is a natural hormone and a primary contributor to male pattern baldness. However, there are other factors that can lead to hair loss.
Balding can be a product of a variety of factors. Generally, androgenetic alopecia occurs as a result of genetics, aging, or hormonal changes. Oftentimes, a combination of these factors is to blame for balding. For example, genetics may make you predisposed to increases in DHT, which cause hair follicles to shrink, shortening the hairs’ growth phase.
Other causes of balding include certain medical conditions, treatments, stress, infection, or persistent tension on hair follicles (usually associated with hairstyles that pull the hair tight). The key to effectively stopping and reversing balding is to begin treatment as soon as you notice the condition beginning to appear. In men, balding typically becomes noticeable as the hairline recedes, causing the forehead to appear bigger. In women, however, balding first presents itself as hair thinning, causing the hair part to widen and more of the scalp to become visible.

With early treatment, growth can be restored. Baldness that has been present for a long period of time typically requires FUT or FUE.
The cost of your treatment depends on a number of factors, including the type of treatment, the extent of your condition, and any supplemental treatments you include in your plan. We know this is an important factor of your treatment and will cover this and other details during your consultation to ensure that your treatment suits you in every way.
Unfortunately, insurance does not cover hair restoration, as it is a cosmetic procedure and not medically necessary.
Most of the treatments at Marotta Hair Restoration involve minimal recovery if any. While FUT, our most invasive treatment, does require some downtime, our other hair restoration treatments allow most patients to return to work the following day, if not immediately after their treatment.
