Treatment for male-pattern baldness

The most common type of hair loss in men is male-pattern baldness. This condition will affect roughly half of all men by 50 years of age.

Around 1 in 4 men will start losing their hair before age 30 to male-pattern baldness. Often it is hereditary, but hormone levels can also affect hair growth. Several treatment options are available, and we are here to help you find a treatment option best suited to your personal needs.

Male-Pattern Baldness: Causes & Treatments

Male-pattern baldness generally begins with a receding hairline and then a gradual thinning of hair at the crown and temples. Complete baldness is less common than partial baldness or overall thinning.

The doctor will examine your hair to understand the type of hair loss you are experiencing.

Treatment options include medications such as Finasteride and Minoxidil, steroid injections, transplants, and methods that stimulate scalp regeneration.

What causes male hair loss?
Most male hair loss is hereditary (passed down through the family genetically). Hormone levels also play a part. Medications, dietary choices, illness and stress can also be a factor.
Can I treat my baldness on my own with hair loss treatments?
It is a good idea to speak to a doctor about your hair loss, as many of the hair replacement treatments available on the market are expensive, and often do not work. A doctor can help you understand the specific cause of your hair loss, and recommend the most appropriate treatment.
Does smoking affect hair loss?
Research shows that there is a link between smoking cigarettes and the progression of baldness. Quitting smoking can improve your chances of keeping your hair for longer.
