The most common condition associated with hair loss that men suffer is androgenetic alopecia (MPB). It starts with a spot on your head or a receding hairline that becomes more prominent over time.
Ronald Slevsk, a Nebraska Board-certified dermatologist, said: “
What are the factors that cause hair loss in men?
As we mature, we experience changes in the amount and type of hormones produced by our body, which can change our health and cause hair loss. Hair growth is regulated by androgens. Any changes to these can affect the hair growth cycle and lead to hair loss.
Hormone levels are somewhat controllable, but when it comes to hair loss, it is difficult to treat other factors such as heredity. MPB occurs more frequently in men with a history of family status.
In addition, this condition can be caused or exacerbated by certain cancers, thyroid conditions, or other health problems such as medications such as anabolic steroids.
How to treat hair loss?
Advances in science have made hair loss treatable both surgically and non-surgically. Non-surgical methods are usually non-invasive and are applied at home. for example, Minoxidil And finasteride are two prominent medicines that act as topical or oral solutions.
While treatments such as Microscalp Pigment (MSP) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) work on hair loss by simulating the appearance of dark hair with scalp ink or by injecting it to stimulate hair growth. The focus is on strengthening the hair life cycle. It is advisable to consult a hair specialist before deciding on a treatment. This is because each individual has different hair and the effects vary depending on the particular type of treatment.
- It is mainly used as a topical treatment applied to the scalp at the fingertips and is intended to promote the growth of dormant follicles and to move them to the growth stage.
- Finasteride, an oral treatment, aims to reduce hair loss by blocking the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by blocking catalytic enzymes.
- Platelet rich plasma (PRP). This includes taking blood from the client, processing it, and then injecting it back into the bald area of the client’s scalp.
- Microscalp Pigment (MSP).. Like tattoos, MSP uses medical grade pigments on the scalp to create the illusion of a shaved head.
Symptoms of hair loss begin slowly, but can quickly develop noticeable bald spots on the head. Not only do these affect your appearance, they can also undermine your self-confidence and cause stress that can lead to further hair loss. Choosing the right treatment can be difficult.
