What is Androgenetic Alopecia?
Male Pattern Hair Loss (Anderogenetic Alopecia) is an emotionally devastating condition. Unfortunately, 50% of men will experience some degree of hair loss by the age of 50.
Male pattern baldness is the number one cause of alopecia, or hair loss, in men. As suggested by its more technical name, Androgenetic Alopecia, the condition results from certain hormones Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which are collectively known as androgens, and genes that influence how hair responds to androgens. Most men are genetically predisposed to developing pattern hair loss because they inherit genes for the trait. This form of hair loss typically occurs between the ages of 20 and 45 in the majority of patients, but can occur at a very young age and may continue throughout one’s life. Male pattern baldness generally starts with a receding hairline and a thinning crown, and can range from partial loss to a horseshoe-shaped area of hair remaining only at the sides and back of the head.
(See Hamilton-Norwood Scale)
If hair loss is influenced by natural hormones, you may be wondering why some people are more inclined toward male pattern baldness than others. Both men and women produce androgens, and the hormone testosterone is actually a precursor to the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone.
Testosterone is converted to DHT by an enzyme known as Alpha-5 reductase, in the hair follicles, adrenal glands, and the male prostate and testes. In addition to the prostate and testes’ role in increasing DHT levels, men also have a greater number of androgen receptors in their dermal papillae than women. These factors combine to make this form of hair loss more common and more severe among men. The reason the amount of hair loss is not equal among men is because those with the genetic predisposition for male pattern baldness have a greater number of androgen receptors for DHT to contact.
Proper early prediction and diagnosis of Men's Hair Loss and Men's Hair Restoration is key to saving your hair.
