Hair Loss Treatment For Men

The Science Behind Hair Thinning In Men

describe the image

Male androgenic alopecia (male pattern balding) is the most common form of hair loss seen in post-pubertal males -- and readily identified by its familiar pattern of progression. The percentages for male balding are around 20% of men in their 20s; 30% in their 30s and so on.

In susceptible men a percentage of the main male hormone testosterone (TT) is converted to a more potent androgen (male hormones are known as androgens) -- dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT progressively exerts a miniaturising effect on the hair follicles across the top of the scalp. Within a reduced growing phase, affected follicles then produce fine-textured, unpigmented hair (termed vellus) that rarely grow beyond a couple of centimeters in length -- thus thinning of the hair density is seen in this androgen-sensitive area.

Male androgenic alopecia usually begins with a receding of the hairline at the temples, and a concomitant thinning of the hair density on the crown. Over time all the hair follicles across the top and sides of the scalp may be affected; leading to -- but NOT always resulting in -- total baldness.
