Am I a good candidate for hair restoration? January 24, 2023 The first step in determining candidacy for hair restoration in Houston is to rule out any other factors that may be affecting your hair growth, such as hormonal imbalances, stress, over-processing, medications, and other lifestyle factors. The ideal candidates for our hair restoration treatments are men who have male-pattern baldness and women who have female-pattern baldness. Male-pattern baldness typically starts with thinning in the temple area, and the hair loss expands to the crown of the head. Female-pattern baldness is a generalized thinning that occurs over the entire scalp.
