Male Pattern Baldness Q & A

 

What is male pattern baldness?

Male pattern baldness is the number one cause of hair loss in men. It results in thinner, finer hair and typically occurs due to hormonal changes caused by the natural aging process. 

Any man can experience male pattern baldness, but it’s especially common after middle age. If you find yourself worrying about the condition or appearance of your hair, and over-the-counter treatments don’t improve your symptoms, schedule an appointment with the team at Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers right away.

What causes male pattern baldness?

The leading cause of male pattern baldness is genetics. If your grandfather or father experienced hair loss, you’re more likely to as well. As you get older, your hair’s growth cycle changes. This causes your follicles to shrink, which produces shorter and finer strands of hair.

Other common causes of male pattern baldness include underlying skin problems, fungal infections, and hormonal and nutritional deficiencies. 

Can male pattern baldness be prevented?

Unfortunately, there’s no way to prevent male pattern baldness entirely, but there are several steps you can take to lower your risk. The team at Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers recommends eating a healthy, balanced diet, exercising regularly, and getting plenty of rest.

It’s also important to manage your stress levels. A growing body of evidence suggests stress and anxiety can speed up hair loss. To reduce stress, participate in relaxing activities like yoga, meditation, or listening to calming music.

How is male pattern baldness diagnosed?

To diagnose male pattern baldness, the team at Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers physically examines your scalp, asks about your symptoms and lifestyle, and reviews your medical history. If they suspect an underlying health problem is to blame, such as a hormonal imbalance or nutritional deficiencies, they might also order laboratory tests.

 

How is male pattern baldness treated?

Treatment for male pattern baldness depends on the severity of your symptoms and their effects on your quality of life. Following a comprehensive exam, the team at Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers might recommend:

  • Oral medication
  • Topical treatments like Rogaine®
  • Follicle unit extraction
  • Strip procedure - follicle unit transfer
  • PRP hair restoration
  • Hair loss prevention

Ultimately, the goal of treatment is to limit additional hair loss and improve the health of your scalp. To achieve the best possible results, attend all follow-up appointments, and adhere closely to the team’s recommendations.
