Hereditary hair loss
Alopecia androgenetica is the medical term used to refer to hereditary hair loss.
Inherited hypersensitivity of the hair follicles to androgens, particularly to DHT (dihydrotestosterone), causes the hair follicles to degenerate progressively. This affects both men and women, with the main difference being in the way it progresses.
- The more advanced the degeneration of the hair follicles is, the more severe the hair loss will be.
- Bald spots should be treated as early as possible.
- One should also aim to preserve and strengthen existing hair structure.
Typical progression in men
In the initial stage, clearing of the frontal region is typical, with a progressively receding hairline that further develops into the so-called monk's head.
Typical progression in women
In women, the hair loss is a bit more moderate: the hairs are typically thin in the area around the cortex. It does not lead to baldness, but the hair thinning is apparent.
Course of alopecia androgenetica with THYMUSKIN® application
Care with THYMUSKIN®
The thymus peptide active ingredient GKL-02 is an integrated reproduction of the natural thymus gland extract - a peptide structure that is modeled on nature.
The biological activity of Thymuskin is particularly evident in the activation of the hair cells (keratinocytes), which have a decisive effect on the physiological growth of the hair. The hair formation is stimulated.
Wash your hair with Thymuskin shampoo
Apply Thymuskin Serum to the scalp and massage in.
Tips & recommendations
- Use for at least 6 months. First results usually visible after about 12 weeks.
- Androgenetically caused hair loss is not a disease and cannot be cured. Therefore, hair loss may occur again after the end of the treatment.
- In mild cases, long-term use of Thymuskin Shampoo is sufficient afterwards.
- If the hair loss increases again, the combination of Thymuskin shampoo and serum should be used on a long-term basis.
- Thymuskin is suitable for long-term use.
Results of clinical tests
In a Multicenter study* the efficacy and tolerability of Thymuskin Classic (serum and shampoo) was investigated in 184 women and 57 men over a period of 6 months.
