What is Male Pattern Baldness?
Also known as androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness is a very common condition, affecting millions of men every year. Genetic in nature, male pattern baldness is identified by a receding of the hairline that begins at the front of the head and moves back. Over time, the hair follicles shrink and become weaker, while new hair growth takes longer. Eventually, hair growth will cease entirely.
What Causes Male Pattern Baldness?
There are a variety of factors that contribute to male pattern baldness. Researchers believe that there could be a gene that governs hair follicle sensitivity to the DHT hormone, which causes hair follicles to shrink. Generally speaking, age, hormones, and genetics all play a role in causing this concerning and inconvenient loss of hair. The best way to determine what may be causing your specific hair thinning is to speak with a medical professional who can properly identify the root cause and rule out any other serious health concerns.
Can Male Pattern Baldness Be Treated?
Fortunately, male pattern baldness can be treated with a variety of techniques. At Nuvell Clinics, we design our hair restoration programs around the following procedures:
ARTAS® Robotic Hair Transplant
This robotic, physician-assisted device is unique in its ability to reduce negative side effects commonly associated with hair transplant surgery. With a shorter recovery period, eliminated risk of human error, and reduced signs of scarring, it is no wonder this is quickly becoming the most popular choice. Additionally, Dr. Friedman is the number one hair restoration doctor using this procedure, so you know you will receive the results you desire.
A minimally invasive procedure, PRP therapy uses the body’s own platelet-rich plasma to prompt new cell growth in the thinning or bald areas. Once the PRP is injected into the treatment site, new cells will form, encouraging the regrowth of healthy, thick hair.
Laser Hair Therapy
A hands-free solution to hair restoration, we often use the Capillus Laser Cap in addition to PRP therapy for a more comprehensive approach to hair loss. This convenient device can be worn under any sports cap, requiring only six minutes a day to stimulate hair regrowth in thinning areas.
How Long Will Results Last?
Results from our hair restoration treatments will vary depending on the method used. However, the details of your procedure will be discussed at length with you during your complimentary consultation, so you feel fully aware of the steps in place to aid in addressing your male pattern baldness and other hair thinning concerns.
Nuvell Clinics is proud to offer a variety of hair restoration services to men struggling with hair loss. Now you can finally regrow your hair in a way that looks and feels natural.
