Male Pattern Baldness
Hair loss is a significant concern for many men. Most men will experience hair loss by the age of 50. The most common cause of hair loss in men is androgenetic alopecia, which is often called “male pattern” hair loss. Male pattern hair loss is a polygenic trait, which means it can be inherited from either your mother or your father’s side of the family. This type of loss is caused by the effects of the male hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) on genetically susceptible hair follicles. DHT causes male pattern hair loss by shortening the growth cycle of hair, causing miniaturization. Hair follicles progressively become shorter and thinner. With prolonged exposure to DHT, the genetically susceptible follicles eventually disappear, leaving a bald scalp.

Male pattern hair loss can be characterized by the onset of a receding hairline and/or hair loss on the front, top and crown of the head. This type of hair loss generally leaves the u-shaped ring of hair around the sides and the back strong.
Men’s hair loss can be effectively treated in two primary ways: hair loss medication and hair restoration. To identify the best treatment for your loss and goals, schedule a free consultation today with a Hair by Robotics hair expert.
