Through Multi-Unit Hair Grafting™, I have achieved a look that I only dreamed about up until last year. I considered having a procedure done, years ago, but was put off by the “cornfield” look. After much research, I chose PAI. Darren explained the procedure to me, and how MUHG was utilized.— John Suter; Danville, IN
Like many of our patients and people suffering from hair loss, you're likely intimidated by the lack of clear information regarding legitimate hair loss treatments, the true causes of hair loss, safe hair restoration procedures and how to determine whether you are a candidate for hair transplants.
Though several new hair transplant techniques are gaining traction in the national spotlight and garnering increased media attention, the actual advantages and disadvantages of hair transplantation procedures are still relatively mysterious ... and while the hair restoration industry is constantly evolving, it's still rather daunting to determine whether a hair loss treatment is truly safe, effective and worth your investment.
At PAI Medical Indiana, we are dedicated to providing important educational opportunities to help you better understand your hair loss and the treatments available to you.
Causes of Hair Loss
Genetic hair loss, often referred to as alopecia, is a medical condition that affects most of our hair transplant patients, both men and women alike. Fortunately, with advancement in hair restoration technology, genetic hair loss can be treated and controlled. Other types of hair loss are caused by stress, medications, physical tension from excessive pulling or plucking of the hair, and extreme malnutrition.

The Psychological Effects of Hair Loss
The psychological effects of hair loss are predominant in both men and women and are well documented in numerous studies to invoke a great deal of emotional trauma, stress and anxiety. It's an ongoing battle with teetering self worth that can be nearly paralyzing.
While hair loss doesn’t bother everyone in the same manner, there is no doubt that in every case of hair loss the psychological effects are just as damaging as the effect hair loss has on physical appearance.
So if you're one of many suffering from the psychological effects of hair loss, let us provide you with additional insight that may turn you onto the right path toward recovery and potential hair loss treatment.

Hair Loss Types
Common hair loss types include androgenetic alopecia, female patterned loss, diffused alopecia and more. The causes for each hair loss type vary, but the general diagnosis and treatment options grow each year with advancements in hair restoration technology.
The standard hair loss classification system used to measure the degree of hair loss in men is known as the Norwood Hair Loss Scale.
The Ludwig Scale and the Savin Scale table are the two most common hair density scales used to measure female hair loss, with the Savin Scale also used to determine the degree of thinning a female hair loss patient is experiencing.
Each classification system will help you determine how far your hair loss has progressed and help our medical professionals determine the most effective hair restoration procedure to deliver maximum results.
