Male Hair Loss

Male Hair Loss

It usually presents itself with a receding hairline or thinning of the hair on the top and crown of the head. Males seem to be genetically wired to associate the health of the hair with youth and masculinity. And it’s an unfortunate truth that hair loss is recognized as a sign of aging. But that doesn’t mean you need to accept your male hair loss as a permanent problem. There are a number of options available for the treatment of male hair loss.

Causes of Male Hair Loss

The most common causes of male hair loss can be hereditary or environmental factors. Other causes of hair loss can often be an underlying health issue like hormonal or nutritional deficiencies, such as thyroid problems, low iron, or low protein.

But the most common cause for male pattern hair loss is known as androgenetic alopecia. In general terms, it is caused by the overproduction of the DHT hormone, a testosterone byproduct. DHT impedes the proper hair growth cycle, meaning you shed too much and don’t grow enough replacement hairs. In fact, research shows that 90 percent of all men’s hair loss cases stem from androgenetic alopecia.

Male Pattern of Hair Loss

It is easy to recognize the male pattern of hair loss. A receding, M-shaped hairline is a sure sign of male pattern baldness. Next, the hair on top of your head starts to thin, leaving a bald spot. Eventually, the two meet and it turns into a horseshoe pattern of hair around the sides.

Treating Male Hair loss

The first step involves evaluating the follicles and the scalp, determining what the underlying cause of male baldness might be and then recommending the right type of treatment.

The following are the first line treatments that have been clinically proven to successfully treat hair loss in varying degrees:

FDA approved medicines : The medicines are vaso-dilator, DHT Blocker & Micro nutrients required for the growth of hair follicle.

Microneedling : Microneedling first gained its reputation as a skin treatment but is now used as a potential alternative for thinning hair and hereditary hair loss. Aside from collagen production, microneedling can also help induce stem cells in the scalp that lead to hair growth. Microneedling also promotes the absorption of hair growth products and medications.

Low intensity laser : This is a treatment that utilizes lasers, or light energy below a specific energy threshold and within a specific wavelength, to help promote hair growth. Low intensity laser is now used as a safe alternative or additional treatment for hair loss.

PRP : This is a safe, natural and effective option for hair restoration in both men and women that harnesses your body’s natural healing and growth promoting abilities, namely platelet rich plasma (PRP) to encourage hair growth.

These treatments are approved world over & well accepted.

The best solution for male hair loss or baldness that is permanent and long lasting is the hair transplant procedure.
What is a Hair Transplant?

Hair Transplant is a type of surgery that moves hair that you already have to fill an area with thin or no hair. The back and sides of hair on the scalp is mostly known as donor area. It has hair that will continue to grow throughout the life of most people. This hair retains its characteristics of growth even after it is transplanted to the thinning or bald area.

Recent technological advances have made the dream of restoring hair with natural looking results for men have become a reality.
