Male baldness is a common occurrence, however, it can have serious implications on a man’s overall health. It can also be a strong indicator to other underlying health problems. Male baldness is usually caused by one of two factors: hereditary factors and/or exposure to certain chemicals or hormones. To date, there has been little evidence linking male baldness with any other underlying medical condition.
The causes of male pattern baldness are not fully understood, although a variety of possible causes have been hypothesized. The primary cause is believed to be related to the gradual loss of hair that occurs with age. In its most extreme manifestation, this loss can cause the shaved spot to appear permanently bald, which is referred to as complete hair loss.
Treatments for male baldness usually focus on hair transplants, either completely replacing hair on the scalp or helping to grow hair follicles from other areas of the body. Though hair transplants are commonly used to treat other kinds of baldness, they are particularly effective in men because they are able to transplant individual hairs from donor areas of the scalp. Though it has been several years since surgical procedures for male baldness were first developed, new advances in the field have made it possible to perform them safely and more effectively than ever before. If you are experiencing symptoms of male baldness, it is important to discuss these options with your doctor.
Aesthetic treatments such as Scalp Micropigmentation from places such as His Hair Clinic can help to provide the appearance of hair follicles which for some men helps to improve their confidence and self esteem, which can be affected during hair loss.« Back
