Hair loss is medically known as Alopecia. There are many different types, caused by many different reasons.
The most common type of hair loss in men is referred to as Androgenic Alopecia. This hair loss is caused by a combination of your inherited genes and the changing hormones. If Androgenic Alopecia or male pattern baldness is your problem you may find some similarity in the Hamilton-Norwood scale – shown below:
This illustrates some of the usual patterns of loss caused by Androgenic Alopecia or Male Pattern Baldness. With hair loss like this, definitely the sooner it is treated, the easier it will be to return to a full style.
Other types of male hair loss conditions include autoimmune disorders such as Alopecia Areata; Alopecia Totalis; Alopecia Universalis; or other created conditions such as Trichotillomania; Traction Alopecia, Chemotherapy and hair loss caused by the use of certain medications. Hair loss can also be caused by physical events such as an accident, an operation or a burn, or even a birthmark that has outstayed its welcome. All of these can also be treated in some form or another.
If there is hair that has been lost, whether this has been over time or quite acutely, then again, the earlier problems are addressed the better.
There are many types of male hair loss and not all are permanent, and some respond very well to fast action with minor medicinal or therapeutic treatments. The decision of which treatment would be best for you, should be left to a professional (even in today’s age of self-diagnosis using the internet). Different treatments work better for different people, and an experienced and unbiased professional should be consulted before commencing any type of program. A professional will diagnosis the cause of the hair loss; how far it may have progressed; what type of treatment would be the most effective to attain your personal goals and expectations, taking into account not only your hair but also your lifestyle.
Treatments used may include: Topical Medications, properly administered medical grade Laser Therapy, Nutritional Supplementation, Mesotherapy Injection and Intralesional Corticosteriod Injestions.
Instant results or gradual thickening can also be achieved by the powerful “Step by Step” Non-Surgical Hair Grafting and Replacement Systems. “Step by Step” is named so, as it allows you to bring your hair back in subtle steps, so friends and family only need to know that you are doing something if you choose to tell them. Also, it prevents any sudden change that you will feel conscious of. This type of treatment restores thickness and density to even the most advanced hair loss. These methods are designed to be permanent, non-surgical, safe, undetectable and most importantly an enjoyable solution to provide a wonderful healthy head of hair.
Follicular Unit Injection FUE and Follicular Unit Transplant FUT are effective surgical methods which can also be called upon when necessary and when applicable.
