According to the American Hair Loss Association[i], about two-thirds of men will experience hair loss by the age of 35. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we believe that knowledge is empowering. If you’re experiencing hair loss, it’s important to understand the possible causes of your thinning or balding hair. Lloyds Pharmacy recently explored the most common causes of hair loss among men in a simple infographic shared by Medical Daily[ii]. The first causes of hair loss they explored were genetic causes.
The two genetic causes of hair loss, according to Lloyds Pharmacy, are male-pattern baldness and aging. Male-pattern baldness causes the “U-shape” balding patch commonly experienced by many men. Male-pattern baldness, also called androgenetic alopecia, is caused by genes inherited from your parents that cause changes in the hormones that regulate hair growth. Because the genes influence the body’s chemistry, men experiencing hereditary hair loss can take either finasteride or minoxidil. These drugs are designed to rebalance the body’s chemistry and prevent hair loss. Neither drug, however, can cause you to regrow the hair you have lost.
The second genetic cause of hair loss among men is simply old age. From 30 onwards, the rate of your hair growth and the volume of your hair will decline for both men and women. This hair loss is simply a part of the aging process, and very little can be done to prevent its occurrence. While prescription tablets or minoxidil lotion might be effective, the surest way to recover from age-related hair loss, according to Lloyds Pharmacy, is a hair transplant procedure.
Hereditary hair loss frustrates many men, young and old. At Vinci Hair Clinic, our goal is to provide options for men who experience androgenetic alopecia and age-related balding. We employ skilled, certified surgeons to provide the best hair transplant surgeries available in the world today. We also offer scalp micropigmentation, a specialized cosmetic procedure that creates the unmistakable appearance of hair follicles.
