Recent surveys have shown that 80% of men and 50% of women are affected by hair loss, with the numbers increasing steadily. Hair loss has different causes and therefore different courses and treatment methods. This is why it is important that you first find out what type of hair loss you are suffering from.
The following is an overview of the main symptoms of the most common types of hair loss as well as the appropriate remedies – and about what you can do, to improve your hair status.
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. Either way, 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. Hair growth can often be reactivated within 3 years after hair fell out. 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.
Care with THYMUSKIN®
GKL-02, the thymus peptide complex contained in Thymuskin, inhibits different enzymes that are responsible for the hair loss. Its biological effectiveness is mostly through its reactivation of the hair follicle: Hair formation is stimulated and the growth phase prolonged
For genetic hair loss, we recommend using Thymuskin Classic Shampoo and Serum for at least 6 months.
Use Thymuskin Med Shampoo and Serum Gel for severe hair loss, visible thinning of hair, or for sensitive scalp and hair.

& SUPPORT OF HAIR REGROWTH
One remedy for permanent bald spots (i.e. older than 3 years), especially in the case of hereditary hair loss in men, is follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or follicular unit extraction (FUE). This methods have been established in recent years and entail removing the follicles from the patient’s remaining hair.
The first few weeks are crucial in determining whether the transplant will grow. Wound healing disorders or inflammatory reactions may occur on the scalp.

Care after hair transplantation
A suitable treatment after hair transplantation plays a crucial role in the healing process, the growth of the hair follicles, and hence in ensuring a satisfactory result—healthy and strong hair.
pH-value skin-friendly THYMUSKIN® Med Shampoo
You can wash the head using the pH-value skin-friendly Thymuskin Med Shampoo (silicone-free, paraben-free) 1-2 days after the natural hair transplant. You should then dab the transplant area gently with a skin-friendly, perfume-free lotion which should be followed by gently rinsing with warm, clean water after about 20 minutes.
Caution with the donor & receptor area
Contact with the transplant area (donor & receptor area) should be avoided. If the rest of the area has not been shaved, it should not be combed because the risk of touching the transplant area with the comb is too high. Styling products should also be avoided within the first four weeks, as well as sports or strenuous physical activities - just as much as exposing the scalp to direct sunlight. Head covers should only be used if absolutely necessary. In this case, it should be placed loosely on the head.
Stimulating & promoting hair growth using THYMUSKIN® Med Serum Gel
Some of the implanted hair can fall off within the first four weeks. These is so-called telogen hair which has reached the end of the growth cycle and therefore falls off. The hair follicle forms anew at this point, so-called anagen hair. Thus, this temporary situation is no reason for concern—it is simply part of the normal growth cycle of the hair.
After the wound has healed, new hair grows on the transplant region in the so-called receptor area. It is hereby advisable to use Thymuskin Med Serum Gel to promote effective growth of the hair follicles. Thymuskin Med Serum Gel regulates mild inflammation, revitalizes the hair follicles, and intensively stimulates the growth of new hair. It stimulates the hair-forming cells, so-called keratinocytes. The growth phase, also called the anagen phase, is thus prolonged and the hair quality improved significantly.
1. Regulates light inflammations
2. Revitalizes the transplanted hair follicles
Since the hair growth takes approximately 6-12 months after the transplant, it is advisable to use Thymuskin Med Shampoo and Thymuskin Med Serum Gel regularly during this period.
