Male pattern baldness which is also called Androgenic Alopecia accounts for more than 95% of hair loss problems in men. It is a popular belief that it is the result of genetic defects and male hormones called dihydrotestosterone. About 25% of men with this condition might suffer from hair loss as early as their teens or even in their early 20’s.
Most men suffering from male pattern baldness are extremely unhappy and face social trauma. Hair loss affects every aspect of a man’s life socially and mentally. Sometimes it even interferes in their professional life. If you experience such male pattern baldness and don’t feel comfortable with your appearance due to hair loss, there are specific hair loss treatments available.
How To Treat Male Pattern Baldness?
In the past few years, tremendous strides of treatment have evolved for men’s hair loss. With the evolution of advanced treatment options for hair loss, men no longer have to live with hair loss. Now it is possible to stop or even slow down the progression of hair loss problems. If you have already lost your hair, HairSure Clinic can replace lost hair through surgery for completely natural results.
Remember that hair loss treatment highly depends on early intervention. It is better to begin the treatment by consulting a doctor as soon as you notice the onset of hair fall. The following treatments are effective and are clinically proven to treat hair loss in men.
Finasteride (Proscar, Propecia)
Finasteride is the brand name of the drugs Proscar and Propecia. It was initially developed as a drug to treat enlarged prostate glands.
During the clinical trials on men suffering from prostate problems, some researchers have noticed an interesting side effect of hair growth. The FDA already approves it in the treatment of enlarged prostates in men. Hence the researcher’s developed as the first pill to treat male pattern baldness.
The FDA approved as low as 1mg dosage of finasteride to treat male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia). Propecia has become the first drug in the history of hair fall treatment that effectively treated male pattern baldness in most of the men using it.
Minoxidil was the first-ever drug that has been approved by the FDA to treat male pattern baldness. Minoxidil is the form of a pill form and was widely used to treat high BP. Just like finasteride, some researchers found some other interesting side of the drug i.e. hair growth, but it is a side effect. People taking minoxidil were found to grow hair in unexpected places like on the cheeks and the back of their hands etc.
Some researchers worked on it and thought to apply minoxidil topically, i.e. directly on the head that might help to grow hair on the balding areas depending on the area of the hair loss. It was a revolutionary discovery.
Further minoxidil has clinically proven, which helps to slow down the progression of hair fall and also helps to regrow some hair. Minoxidil doesn’t affect the hormonal process, and the results are at its best. However, it yields somewhat disappointing results in some people.
If Minoxidil or Finasteride doesn’t provide promising results, hair transplantation is the next option. It is a popular surgical technique that helps to regain lost hair. It gives natural hairline by using various methods.
FUE and FUT are the best-named hair transplantation procedures. These surgical techniques involve removing hair follicles from one part of the body that is called the “donor site” and transplanted to the balding part known as the “recipient site”. The best-proven technique primarily used in the treatment of male pattern baldness.
