What Is Male Pattern Baldness?
Male pattern baldness, or male androgenic alopecia, is a hereditary condition that produces natural hair loss in men, usually increasing as they age. Male pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss in men and usually begins with the loss of hair along the front of the hairline, causing a receding hairline that eventually recedes further and further, or it may begin with a bald spot at the top of the head that expands over time with aging.
Can Hair Loss in Men be caused by other conditions?
While male androgenic alopecia is the most common reason for hair loss in men, some men do experience other types of hair loss that may result from an untreated health problem, certain medications, or other issues. In most cases, hair loss that is not caused by hereditary conditions may be temporary and reversible once the underlying cause of hair loss is treated.
Can Male Pattern Baldness be treated?
Yes! Male pattern hair loss can now be successfully treated with NeoGraft™ follicular unit extraction (FUE) treatment, the most advanced procedure for hair transplant available today. Typically, the procedure is performed by removing a strip of hair-bearing skin from a discreet area of the scalp that can easily be camouflaged. The strip is then split into hundreds of smaller grafts of “follicular units.” Some of these tiny grafts may contain up to four or five hairs, but most contain only one or two hairs. These individual, minute, follicular units are then inserted into tiny incisions in the target areas where hair growth has ceased. This precise and laborious technique allows Dr. Austin to precisely craft each individual hair transplant procedure, reproducing natural hair growth patterns in each patient.
Male pattern hair loss can also be treated using your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) in a technique called PRP therapy. PRP injections for hair restoration is an advanced medical treatment that harnesses the growth factors found within your blood to stimulate the production of new hair.
The first step of PRP therapy is to draw blood. Your blood is then treated in a centrifuge so that only the enriched cells (PRP) remain. Melissa Sumner, our nurse practitioner, will then inject the PRP into the target areas of the scalp. PRP therapy for hair restoration can be a solo treatment or it can be done in addition to other hair restoration treatments. We recommend you consult with Dr. Austin to determine a procedure plan that works best for you.
