Why hair fall starts from the frontal area?
" For men with androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness), it is common for them to loose hair from the frontal and temporal areas of the scalp.According to recent studies, the main probable cause is the hormone DHT. For some reason, the hair follicles in those areas seem to be more androgen sensitive compare to the hair follicles on the back of the scalp.Another probable reason from recent studies talks about the pressure on the hair follicles which is normally buffered by the surrounding subcutaneous fat tissue and young dermis that is capable of keeping itself well hydrated. As one ages, thickness of the subcutaneous fat tissue and the volume of the dermis decreases, that is, the buffer decreases and consequently the pressure on the hair follicles increases, which may be another cause of the hair loss on the top of the scalp.Further reading - [https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4174066/] (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4174066/)"

Does a pigmentation on 60 year old lady can be treated?

Large pigmented spots, including age spots, melasma ( due to hormonal changes and sun exposure) can develop.Changes in the connective tissue reduce the skin's strength and elasticity. The blood vessels of the dermis become more fragile and they can easily bruise or bleed under the skin.Sebaceous glands produce less oil resulting in dryness and itchiness.Thus an ageing skin naturally undergoes all this changes and appears thinner, fragile, more pigmented, drier and wrinkled.Pigmentation on a 60 year old lady can be treated but the results seen in an aged skin is definitely different and lesser from a younger skin. An older skin requires more moisturization and better sun protection apart from the skin lightening agents ."
