Hair Loss Treatment Statistics
Individuals suffering from a receding hairline or balding spots often wish they had access to some form of hair loss treatment. Thinning hair is a source of frustration for countless men and women throughout the world. In the United States alone, studies show that approximately 21 million women and 35 million men suffer from hair loss of some form or another.
But those collective 56 million Americans living with hair loss in the Birmingham, MI area finally have an answer. At AMAE Med Spa, hair loss expert Dr. Ali can provide such individuals with the state-of-the-art, highly effective, non-surgical PRP hair loss treatment they are looking for.
In this article, we will take a look at some of the most informative statistics pertaining to hair loss treatments.
Hair Loss Treatments: Men vs. Women
It a common, but unfair, assumption that hair loss is only suffered by men. In fact, 40% of all hair loss treatment candidates are actually women.
Since women are more likely to conceal their hair loss with hair extensions or wigs, many people would be surprised by the number of women who seek out hair loss treatment. And since it is considered more socially acceptable for men to embrace their baldness, it could be considered even more surprising to know that almost half of all potential hair loss treatment patients are actually women.
Age and Hair Loss Treatment
The older a person gets, the more likely they will be to benefit from hair loss treatment – regardless of gender. As early as age 35, 40% of men will suffer from some form of visible hair loss. By age 60, that number jumps to as high as 65%.
And for women, the percentage of age-related hair loss increases dramatically. A clinical study reported that by the age of 40, 40% of all women would benefit from hair loss treatment. But by the time they reach 60, the percentage skyrockets to a whopping 80%. For this reason, at Birmingham, MI’s AMAE Med Spa, we are happy to provide hair loss treatment to patients of every age and gender identity.
Society and Hair Loss Treatment
Obviously, not all men experience shame from baldness. Many men choose to forgo hair loss treatment in favor of embracing the distinguished, “bald, tough guy” looks of actors like Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson. Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson headline one of the biggest action franchises at the box office with nary a follicle on either of their heads. And while blockbuster supervillain Thanos could have treated his baldness with a simple snap of his fingers, he chose to conquer the universe without ever once considering hair loss treatment.
But far from the escapist fantasy worlds of the silver screen, real-life citizens of Birmingham, MI face tremendous societal pressure to undergo hair loss treatments. According to the tragic results of some surveys, as many as 75% of women claim they would prefer not to date men who are “follicly challenged.
And while the American people clearly take no issue with electing a president with “unusual” hair, only five residents of the Oval Office have ever been bald. Furthermore, modern presidential candidates should perhaps seek out hair loss treatment, as not a single bald person has been elected president since the invention of television.
Statistics on Hair Loss Treatment
One clinical study showed that the topical hair loss treatment minoxidil (sold commercially as Rogaine) was sought out by 85% of men in search of a miracle cure for baldness. The remaining 15 percent opted for the hair loss treatment finasteride (better known as Propecia). Other hair loss treatments including vitamins, herbal remedies, and even laser therapy were all tried by much smaller percentages of the men surveyed.
On the more extreme end of hair loss treatment, more than 100,000 “hair transplant” hair restoration surgeries are performed in the U.S. every year. However, studies show that, following the initial procedure, as few as 60 percent of “hair transplant” surgery patients were pleased with the result of their hair loss treatment. In fact, achieve their desired results, 9 out of 10 patients required a second surgery to get the hair loss treatment results they were looking for.
And furthermore, hair transplants are one of the most expensive and painful hair loss treatments available. Depending on the procedure, patients can expect to drop $5,000 to $20,000 on hair transplants. And with most patients requiring two surgeries for results, it is a far more expensive option than the natural and non-surgical PRP hair loss treatments available at Birmingham, MI’s AMAE Med Spa.
