Men’s Hair Loss Solutions
Most men experience some degree of hair loss as they advance in age. In fact, 12% of men will experience some hair loss by the time they reach their 20’s while more than 50% will experience visible hair loss by the time they reach their 50’s. Men’s Hair Loss Solutions vary and choosing what’s best for you requires taking the time to determine what type of thinning and or balding you have. The psychological effect of hair loss in men does however vary greatly, from those who hardly seem to notice to those who are extremely self conscious about it. If you’re distracted by or uncomfortable with your own hair loss, now is the time to take action. It’s extremely important for men with hair loss to seek both medical treatment and psychological help.
The psychological effects of men’s hair loss vary greatly, from the guys who hardly pay any attention to their thinning hair to the guys that worry so much about their hair loss that it makes them uncomfortable at work, at the gym or even at family gatherings. What is most important about both of these groups of guys is, when they are having difficulty dealing with their hair loss, they receive not only the proper medical treatment but psychological help as well.
Recent advances in medicine and technology have lead to the development of a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical hair loss solutions, designed to stop and even revere hair loss. The Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) and, the more advanced, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) have quite literally revolutionized the way physicians treat hair loss. In fact, many men with hair loss, who weren’t candidates for surgical hair restoration in the past, are now undergoing successful procedures. Yet another development, in the field of hair restoration, has been the introduction of the oral medication finasteride, also known as Propecia. Today millions of men are taking advantage of these and other hair loss solutions, enabling them to regain their confidence and get back to the daily activities they once enjoyed.
Hair restoration experts are continuing to discover new technologies and hair loss solutions every day. In the next 10 years they even expect to have the technology to clone a patient’s hair follicles. Though this technology is not yet available, as your leading Lincoln hair restoration specialists, we will be the some of the first to offer it!
What Causes Men to Lose Their Hair?
The most common cause of hair loss in men is Alopecia. Specifically Androgenetic Alopecia, which is also known as “male pattern baldness.” A genetic condition, Androgenetic Alopecia causes hair follicles to become particularly sensitive to a male sex hormone known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The effected hair follicles miniaturize and therefore have a shorter lifespan. Male pattern baldness generally leads to the loss of hair at the top, front and crown of the scalp. Because the back and sides of the scalp are rarely impacted, this is where hair is generally harvested during a hair transplant.
