What is male pattern baldness

Male pattern baldness typically follows a distinct pattern. It often begins with a receding hairline, which gradually forms an “M” shape. As the condition progresses, hair thinning may occur on the crown of the head, creating a bald spot. Eventually, the two areas of hair loss may merge, leaving a horseshoe-shaped ring of hair around the back and sides of the head. Androgenic alopecia can start as early as the teenage years, but it most commonly begins in adulthood. The rate and extent of hair loss can vary from person to person, and some individuals may experience more rapid or severe hair thinning than others.

What Causes androgenic alopecia

Androgenic alopecia is primarily caused by a combination of genetic and hormonal factors. In individuals with a genetic predisposition, hair follicles become sensitive to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This hormone miniaturizes the hair follicles, leading to shorter, finer, and less pigmented hair growth over time.

How is Hair Loss in Men treated?

  • Medical Treatments: While there is no cure for androgenic alopecia, various treatment options can help slow down hair loss and promote hair regrowth. These may include over-the-counter medications like minoxidil (Rogaine) or prescription medications such as finasteride (Propecia), which work to inhibit the effects of DHT on the hair follicles. Hair transplant surgery and low-level laser therapy are other treatment options that can be considered for more advanced cases.

  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): PRP for hair loss is a regenerative treatment that utilizes the patient’s own blood to stimulate hair growth. The procedure involves extracting a small amount of blood from the patient, processing it to concentrate the platelets and growth factors, and then injecting the PRP solution into the scalp. The platelets and growth factors in PRP promote the regeneration of hair follicles, improve blood circulation to the scalp, and stimulate the production of new, thicker hair strands. PRP for hair loss is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that has shown promising results in promoting hair growth and improving hair density. Multiple treatment sessions are usually recommended for optimal results.

  • Hair transplant surgery: In more severe cases, hair transplant surgery may be an option. This procedure involves transferring hair follicles from areas with healthy hair growth to areas of thinning or baldness.
