Male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) is a hair loss condition that usually begins between the ages of 25 and 35. It causes thinning of the hairline and crown, and later baldness all over the top of the head. Most men would prefer to avoid the embarrassment that this condition often causes and a common question for Vinci Hair Clinic’s experts is “Is it possible to prevent male pattern baldness?”
The first question to answer is whether you are likely to develop androgenetic alopecia as you age. Androgenetic alopecia is a hereditary condition, so if other male family members have lost their hair, it is likely that the same will happen to you. On the other hand, you may be from a family of men who maintain thick hair through old age, and be the unlucky one who goes bald. An expert can look at your family history and make a fairly accurate prediction of your potential for hair loss – but there are always exceptions to the rule.
If you do have the potential for pattern balding, there are many steps you can take to defend yourself against hair loss.
- Dietary supplements
Opt for a supplement that contains a wide array of nutrients, as well as DHT blocking herbs, such as Vinci Hair Clinic’s Vitruvian Line.
- Scalp massages
A stress-busting massage will improve circulation to scalp and stimulate the hair follicles.
- LLLT therapy
Low light laser therapy is proven to stimulate hair growth.
- Mesotherapy or PRP
Mesotherapy and PRP are medical treatments that can support healthy hair growth
For those who are noticing the first signs of pattern balding, additional treatments can be beneficial. The FDA approved medications minoxidil and finasteride are very effective and can prevent hair loss from progressing. Those with more advanced hair loss may opt for a restorative treatment like hair transplants or micro scalp pigmentation.
