Androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, accounts for 95% of men’s hair loss. An estimated 25% of men experience noticeable hair loss by the time they reach 21, and that number continues to increase with age. A small percentage of men also experience hair loss as a result of hormonal changes.
While men’s hair loss is perfectly normal, without proper treatment, it can negatively affect your confidence, self-esteem, and overall quality of life. If you’re experiencing men’s hair loss, don’t hesitate to reach out to the caring professionals at Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers today.
The most common cause of men’s hair loss is male pattern baldness. Other factors that can contribute to men’s hair loss include:
Your genetics and family history also plays a role. If either of your parents or relatives were bald or experienced thinning hair, you’re more likely to as well.
Hair loss affects every man differently, and it shows up in different ways, depending on the underlying cause. Common telltale signs of men’s hair loss include:
You might also experience patches of scaling that start small and spread across the surface of your scalp.
To diagnose men’s hair loss, your Advanced Robotic Hair Restoration Centers provider conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks about your symptoms.
If these measures don’t provide enough information, your doctor might also order a series of blood tests, conduct a pull test, or use a special microscope to observe the surface of your scalp.
Treatment for men’s hair loss depends on the underlying cause and severity of your condition. If your hair loss is mild or moderate, you might benefit from taking prescription medications such as Rogaine or Propecia. If your hair loss is a result of a nutritional deficiency, your provider might also recommend eating a healthier, more balanced diet.
If these medications don’t increase the thickness or fullness of your hair, your provider might recommend hair restoration surgery with the ARTAS iX™ robotic hair restoration system. This cutting-edge same-day treatment leaves no scars and provides stunning, natural-looking results.
