A Concise Primer On Male Pattern Baldness



Male Pattern Baldness

Baldness implies partial or complete lack of hair and can be understood as part of the wider topic of “hair thinning”. The degree and pattern of baldness can vary greatly, but its most common cause is male and female pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia, alopecia androgenetica or alopecia seborrheica – an alternative term used primarily in Europe. www.wikopedia.com

Cause of a Receding Hairline or Baldness

95% of hair loss and receding hair lines in men is caused by androgenic alopecia, known as male pattern baldness. It is so common in men throughout the world and cross ethnic types that it is considered normal. In typical male pattern baldness the hairline moves further back up the brow. Usually at the temples first which creates a tendency form a widow’s peak. An advance thinning out in the front toward the crown takes place.

With this type of baldness, some men experience a bald patch on the crown or top of the head, which will eventually reach the sides. Normal male pattern baldness does not involve patches of hair loss, pain, or redness. Such conditions could result from a medical problem. Consulting with a qualified medical doctor in hair restoration is ideal. Los Angeles hair transplant surgeons are some of the leading experts in the world on hair loss.

The Hair Transplant Network provides before and after of the classic pattern. Hair transplant surgery was performed by a leading Beverly Hills and Los Angeles expert in hair transplant surgery, Parsa Mohebi, MD.

The causes of the maturing hairline are hereditary, genetically linked (possibly) to maternal grandparents. Presently, researchers have not proven with certainty which gene causes male pattern baldness. If you do carry the gene to potentially develop a receding hairline or baldness, it will actually be the formation of a hormone called DHT (dihydrotestosterone), formed from testosterone, which causes the balding to begin.
