What is Norwood Stage 3?
The Norwood scale has seven stages. Each stage measures the severity and pattern of hair loss. And stage 3 gives the first signs of clinically notable balding. There are 2 cases in stage 3. The first one is where the hairline shifts deep at both temples, matching an M, U, or V shape. The second stage is hair loss at the vertex. Here, the hairline remains same, however, there is significant hair loss on the top of the scalp (the vertex).
Why Treatment is Important at Norwood Stage 3?
As explained earlier, stage 3 is the initial stage of balding. This being the starting point of balding, needs control and treatment to avoid drastic hair loss. Physical examination, medical history, family genes, helps in diagnosing male pattern baldness. A dermatologist or hair specialist can examine your scalp to identify the pattern and degree of your hair loss. At early Norwood stages, the hair loss treatments are most successful. It is easier to control and slow down hair loss than to work on new hair growth. Norwood stage 3 is one such significant phase of hair loss where surgical procedures may be the best option.

1. Medicines are available in the market to treat hair loss such as Minoxidil a medicated solution which needs to apply as prescribed on the scalp. Regular usage of minoxidil for at least 6 months, prevents further hair loss and later starts with hair regrowth. Another one is Finasteride a pill given to men to reduce DHT. Daily intake of these pills slow the hair loss in men and after 6 months helps in new hair growth.
External microinjections are implanted just below the epidermal layer of the scalp. This encourages the hair’s natural regeneration and reproduction process. This technology at the root of the treatment is based on the understanding that most hair loss problems are a result of lack of proper nutrients, reduced blood circulation to the scalp, and hormone imbalances (DHT, in particular) around the hair follicle.
Dermaroller is a handheld roller-device covered in microneedles. The needles range from 0.25 mm to 1.5m. These needles are rolled over the bald region. This helps in stimulating hair growth, and this can be used with minoxidil for better results.
4. PRP Therapy:
Platelet-rich plasma therapy helps increase the blood supply to the hair follicle. Which in turns helps in natural hair growth. Plasma is a component of the blood that contains special proteins that support cell growth. PRP is injected into the bald region, which stimulates and helps in hair regrowth.
5. Hair Transplant:

Parts of your scalp that have good hair growth are removed, and hair follicles are transplanted to the balding areas. Nubello Aesthetics offers the best FUE hair transplant in Mumbai.
