Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia, is the most common form of hair loss in men. As the term suggests, male pattern baldness follows a typical sequence. It usually starts at the temples and on the crown of the head, causing thinning and creating a bald spot. For most men, losing their hair can be very distressing and can have an impact on their confidence. Fortunately, there are clinically proven baldness treatments available, that can work effectively to stop hair loss and stimulate growth.

Why am I losing my hair?
Although researchers are still studying the factors that cause this condition, male pattern baldness is generally believed to be hereditary. If hair loss runs in your family there is a strong chance that you too could start to show signs of hair loss at some point. The hair loss process usually begins as men approach middle-age, although it may happen quicker for some people, affecting men as young as 18 or 19.
How does male pattern hair loss happen?
Male pattern baldness is caused by the effect of male hormones, called androgens, on genetically sensitive hair follicles. The male hormone testosterone is converted into the androgen ‘dihydrotestosterone’, or ‘DHT’, by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. The effect of DHT inhibits the growth of new hair cells, causing the hair to loosen and shed, leading to eventual baldness.
The symptoms of male pattern baldness
The typical pattern starts at the hairline; it gradually recedes to form an "M" shape and the remaining hair may become finer and shorter. The hair at the crown also begins to thin, then eventually the top of the hairline meets the thinned crown, leaving a horseshoe pattern of hair around the sides of the head.
Male pattern baldness treatments
Before choosing a hair loss treatment you should speak to a specialist or our doctor online to get advice on which method will be most beneficial for your condition. This will help you to avoid spending money and precious time on products that aren’t effective. Many natural supplements and creams claim to help restore hair, although few of them have any clinical data to back up their claims.
Plastic surgery, transplant, scalp reduction and flap-surgery are alternative male pattern baldness treatments that can offer cosmetic improvements, but are potentially intrusive, expensive, and will most likely require a repeat procedure as time goes on.
