Male Pattern Hair Loss
"Male pattern hair loss" is a common term for natural hair loss in adult men. About 85% of men get major hair thinning by the age of 50.
What Causes It?
Almost all hair loss in MEN results from male-pattern baldness, a genetic trait that comes from your parents. Other causes include certain medications, too much vitamin A, or not enough protein. Illness or stress can lead to sudden, heavy shedding called telogen effluvium. Good news, though: Hair loss that isn’t from male-pattern baldness often reverses itself.
Male Pattern Baldness is the most common form of hair loss in case of men. In this condition, the hair loss usually begins with a receding frontal hairline at both the corners in a U-shaped or M-shaped pattern. It can also begin from the vertex of the scalp.
Treatment for male pattern hair loss/baldness
Hair Transplant: This is the most effective treatment for pattern baldness in men. In this procedure, the hair follicles are plucked out from areas least affected by male pattern baldness (usually the back of the scalp) and transplanted on the bald regions.
Scalp Micropigmentation: In case you are not suitable for any hair restoration method, you can go for Scalp Micropigmentation or Non Surgical Hair Implant In Micropigmentation method, natural pigments are placed inside the epidermal layer of your scalp, so as to give the look and feel of a shaved head. Usually applied over 2-3 treatment sessions to gradually build the required density, scalp micropigmentation provides an incredibly realistic illusion of real hair, in fact the illusion is so convincing, no-one needs to know unless you choose to tell them.
Non Surgical Hair Implant: Get back full head of hair in just 60 mins !!!
In this technique a human virgin hair exactly matching the colour texture and look of your own hair is sourced from Germany and a skin is prepared fusing this hair to it as per the exact measurement of the bald area and fixed by grip strip method so that you can style, gel, swim, wash and treat this hair just like your own hair.
Hair miniaturization is a natural process that occurs in 95% of all hair loss cases. It’s the starting point from which male pattern baldness occurs. Individual follicles and strands continue to shrink over time and eventually become dormant if left untreated.
Hair miniaturization is the key feature of Pattern Hair Loss or Androgenic Alopecia. It affects many men starting in their early 20’s as puberty comes to and end. The hair will appear less dense and thinner before it eventually falls out. The onset of male pattern baldness begins with miniaturization and ends with fibrosis (or scarring) when the hair bulb and follicle disappear, but this takes many years.
Miniaturization is what a person sees the first time he or she realizes they are losing their hair. If the person desires to save their hair and prevent further balding, now is the time to act.
To overcome miniaturization is by having Bio-Activated Micrograft Hair Transplant in combination with Hair loss therapy. Hair in the occipital scalp tends to be naturally resistant to the effects of DHT. It is not uncommon for people to show extreme signs of hair loss, yet still, retain hair in this back portion of the scalp. Therefore, if the physician implants follicular units from the occipital scalp into other regions of the scalp that are experiencing hair loss, then normal hair can continue to grow. Even though the same amount of DHT is still present in the scalp’s tissue as before, the newly transplanted follicular units are not affected as they are typically resistant to DHT on the cellular level due to genetics.
Hair loss therapy is a medical treatment which mainly occurs in three steps where a patient's blood is drawn, processed, and then the final step includes injecting it into the scalp. Various Research studies show these injections tend to trigger natural hair growth and also maintain it by injecting the blood supply to the hair follicle. This in turn increases the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes this approach is also combined with other hair loss procedures or medications in order to achieve healthier hair.
