Texas Guide to male Hair Loss: Prevention, Treatment & Solutions

Men losing hair, facing baldness or thinning hair are concerns for both young and mature men. Most men experience at least some degree of hair loss in their lifetime, with the numbers increasing continuously with age. Hair loss can affect about 85% of men in the USA. Most men, as they age, will have some form of hair thinning or baldness problem. By their late 20’s, approximately 12% of men experience some hair loss. By the time a man is in his 50s, he has a greater than 50% chance showing some genetic baldness.

The progression of men’s hair falling out

Some men start losing hair by showing thinning hair all around the scalp, while others develop a slight hair loss as a bald spot at a particular area. Also, some individuals have complete hair loss or total baldness within a short time, according to hair restoration specialists in Dallas, Texas. Because medical condition hair loss can mimic the diffuse pattern seen in hereditary hair loss, a careful diagnostic evaluation is necessary. 

Can a bald man grow hair back? With complete bald scalp, the hair follicles are already dead, and hair doesn’t revive. At the early stages of thinning hair, there is a good prospect for stopping the hair from continuing to fall, and hair can be grown back with the right products.

Baldness

Male Pattern Baldness (Androgenic Alopecia)

Common baldness, male-pattern hair loss, genetic hair loss, and Androgenic Alopecia are terms that we use to describe hair loss typically seen in men, where hair loss is on the front, top, and crown area. Androgenic Alopecia is the medical term for either male or female hair loss and baldness. It represents close to 95% of all men’s hair loss.

Androgenetic, from ANDROGEN referring to the various hormones that control the development of masculine characteristics such as testosterone. GENETIC, the inheritance of genes from either mother or father’s side of the family.

Cause

Why male pattern baldness?

Male pattern baldness, or androgenic alopecia is a hereditary condition that causes baldness or significant loss of hair in about 66 percent of all men. An estimated 35 million men in the United States alone have male pattern hair loss. It can start as early as the teen years. Losing hair risk increases with age, with 40% of men showing noticeable hair loss by the age of 35, and more than 50 percent of men over 50 years old have some degree of hair loss.

  • Male-Pattern baldness is the most common cause of hair loss for both men and women. 
  • One parent contributes to the balding trait. 

Genetics determines hair follicles sensitivity to male sex hormones, dihydrotestosterone DHT. And baldness occurs when the hair follicle shrinks over time.
