Family History and Hair Loss

Friday, January 20th, 2012

The fact is, we are genetically predisposed in many ways. Our physical makeup may favor one parent over another, but as we become more acquainted with different family members on both sides, we start to find common traits with various members from our families. Though one parental side may be more dominate over the other, our hair and the loss thereof, to a significant point, is also hereditary.

Genetic Predisposition to balding

Perhaps you know someone who in their teens or early twenties started to experience thinning hair, the odds are the culprit is hidden in that complex of genetic code we call our ‘family tree.’

Hereditary hair loss is characterized by:

Progressive miniaturization of hair follicles
Shortening of the hair’s growth cycle
The growth phase decreases
Hair becomes thinner and shorter
Eventually, the graft ceases to exist.  

Modern Advances in hair restoration have made male-pattern and female-pattern androgenetic alopecia very treatable. Many men and women have enhanced their self image and esteem through successful hair restoration under the guidance of a highly skilled and qualified hair restoration medical doctor. MPB and FPB are common and today’s medical professionals have been paying attention the result being that both surgical and medical hair loss treatments have high rates of success.

Because hereditary hair loss is gradual, the sooner treatment is started, the better the chances of results. Checking your family tree to see if you have a possible genetic predisposition to hair loss might help you recognize the symptoms early enough to slow the progression.

Let the Webinar Series Begin!!

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

At US Hair Restoration we are beginning a new Webinar series that allows for patients and onlookers to connect with Dr. Parsa Mohebi and ask any hair loss questions they may have directly. Each webinar will focus on different topics like “Why does balding actually happens” and “Breakthrough technology in Hair Restoration.” Each webinar will be equipped with a time of introduction, informative conversation about hair loss, hair restoration, latest techniques of hair restoration, and much more. There will also be a Q & A time which may include special incentives for those who are interested in a hair loss consultation and hair transplantation.

Webinar Series Featuring Medical Director Parsa Mohebi, MDWe are excited at having this time for answering the many different questions given by people who want more knowledge about the art and science of hair restoration, as well as those who simply want to know what they can personally gain from hair restoration. We constantly receive hair loss and hair restoration questions which come to US Hair Restoration and get answered over the phone, email, or through our blog. In spite of these available resources, many feel they don’t have answers for their questions. This hair restoration webinar series will give place for those questions to be answered in an open forum where Dr. Mohebi is available to answer all the questions himself. This is a great way to start the New Year off with an innovative, more personal way to connect to individuals.

January 9th, 2012 at 6 PM (PST) is when our first Webinar begins. We are excited to expand the ways we can stay in touch with everyone and hope to see you all there!!Spaces are limited, and on a first come, first serve basis. Contact us at or call us at (888) 302-8747 and we will be happy to add you to the fun!!
