⊕ Norwood Scale Stage 1
No change of the hairline because of very minor loss o hair. If you dont have family history of baldness it is not necessary to apply any treatment of hair loss. If there exists a family history of baldness, you may need to monitor the process closely and decide for a treatment because early response will make it easier to have your hair regrown.
⊕ Norwood Scale Stage 2
Symetricall loss of hair above your eyebrows on both sides, resulting 1 or 2 cm change of the hair line and loss o density in that area represents stage 2. This stage is the pre-balding stage. Consultation is advised at this stage, to see if drug treatment will suffice to stop the process of hair loss or not.
⊕ Norwood Scale Stage 3
The first stage of baldness when hair loss is at the lowest level. Most of the hair loss is observed on top of the head and in the front hair line. Moreover, there is observable decrease of density all around the head. You need to contact CliniCrew Medical team to decide on the most suitable way o treament so as to stop hair loss.
⊕ Norwood Scale Stage 4
One step forward after stage 3. Baldness seems to be a fact at this stage. Unless an appropirate method of hair loss treatment is applied, the results will be severe after this stage. Hair loss on the crown is obvious, and the change of hair line over your eyebrows is very significant.
⊕ Norwood Scale Stage 5
Hair loss in the crown and in the front area is larger in stage 5. There is still some hair seperating the crown and the frontal area but hair is thinner and the line between the crown and frontal hair is too narrow. The remaining hair on top of the head has the shape of a horseshoe. Urgent treatment is required at this stage.
⊕ Norwood Scale Stage 6
There is no distinction between the crown and the frontal hair. All lost, but only single sprinkled hair remains on your head. Hair loss extends to both sides. Well planned surgical treatment is required at this stage, because hair loss is too much for drugs treatment.
⊕ Norwood Scale Stage 7
The most advanced level of baldness. Severe hair loss is obviously observed. A very narrow line of hair remains over the ears. Relax now, not much left to lose after this stage.
