Male pattern baldness is much more common than people think. To prevent the negative effects on your quality of life due to hair loss, we can help men like you find preventative treatments and restore your hair to a healthy and youthful volume.
The root cause of male pattern baldness, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is genetics. In the initial stages of this hereditary affliction, men often notice a receding hairline beginning at the temples or thinning at the crown. As the condition progresses, the hairline recedes to the point where it meets the bald spot at the crown. Eventually, all that remains is a horseshoe-shaped pattern of hair around the sides and back of the head.
The hair follicles of men experiencing this condition have inherited a sensitivity to a specific hormone, causing them to miniaturize over time, producing thinner and less dense hair. Ultimately, the follicles will stop producing healthy hairs and grow only miniaturized hairs that are nearly invisible to the human eye (like peach fuzz). This type of hair loss is progressive, and it can begin at puberty, so early intervention is essential.
