Men’s Hair Loss, Balding, and Restoration Options
About Men’s Balding and Hair Loss.
Male hair loss and balding are a very common conditions that about half the male population will experience. For many, the onset of hair loss can begin in their early 20’s and 30’s.
While there can be many causes for a man to lose hair, the most common is a genetic condition called Androgenetic Alopecia (also referred to as Male Pattern Baldness). As you grow through adulthood , testosterone starts converting into DHT— a hormone that affects hair follicles. This condition is an inherited trait passed down from your parents, grandparents, or even great grandparents!
In the early stages of hair loss, you may notice your hairline receding. This is because your hormone-sensitive hair follicles begin to shrink and produce thinner hair. Eventually, these follicles stop growing normal hair, and instead generate strands so fine they are almost invisible. This process usually starts with the temples, the crown of the head, or both. As hair loss progresses, the receding hairline and bald spot eventually come together, leaving a C shape “collar” of hair that wraps around the sides and back of your head.

The best time to address male hair loss is right now
If you always thought the effects of hair loss were something you had to endure — think again. The sooner you take action, the better your results from FUE and our growth-promoting Restroration Therapies can be. Your initial consultation will include an assessment of your current stage of hair loss identified on the Norwood scale. This scale helps to strategize the best course of action by better indicating how much hair has been lost, and also helping predict the severity of future thinning.
CAUSES OF MEN’S HAIR LOSS
- Genetics: (Androgenetic Alopecia- most common)
- Aging: In later years, hair transitions into the resting phase of hair growth (referred to as involutional alopecia)
- Hormonal Changes : Testosterone to DHT
- Alopecia Areata: A fairly common autoimmune disorder that can result in unpredictable hair loss
- Thyroid Disease
- Cancer Treatment: chemotherapies and radiation
- Prescription Drugs: including blood thinners, heart and blood pressure medications and anti-depressiants
- Diet: protein and iron play a key role in maintaining healthy hair
- Aggressive Hair Styling: Excessive blow drying, etc. can damage hair
- Chemical Treatments: coloring, perms and relaxers can lead to overall hair loss
It is important to positively identify other causes of hair loss. The hair loss evaluation during your consultation will focus on Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) therapies and treatments. The consultation DOES NOT include serum laboratory studies, tissue biopsy or other diagnosis and treatments of non AGA related disorders. All patients are encouraged to follow-up with a Dermatologist specializing in hair loss.
