Although it predominantly affects women, men can also suffer from telogen effluvium. As with women, this is considered dermatologically benign because it does not always cause thinning. Furthermore, it is a temporary phenomenon that does not affect the hair follicles in the long term. As for women, telogen effluvium without thinning in men is therefore not synonymous with baldness.
Psychologically, however, it can cause anxiety in some patients, especially for those who already suffer from alopecia or androgenetic alopecia.
After confirming the diagnosis, cosmetic solutions and therapeutic treatment may be prescribed by the dermatologist. The expected results are a normalization of hair loss and stimulation of hair growth.
