How common is hair loss in men?
Thinning hair and hair loss is very common in men. A “decade of life correlation” is a coincidental parallelism that predicts the percentage of men with hair loss, such that 50% of 50 year olds will demonstrate visible hair loss, 60% of 60 year olds, etc.
What treatments are there for hair loss in men?
In short, hair loss treatment for men options include the following:
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplants
- Follicular Unit Strip (FUS) harvest – In some cases
- Non-surgical medical treatments such as Rogaine (Minoxidil) Finasteride (Propecia)
- ACell/Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
- Low-level laser therapy
The Norwood Classification System describes hair loss patterns in male pattern baldness. Below is a simplified version. Where do you fall?
Type 1 minimal, if any, recession
Type 2 beginning of a receding hairline
Type 3 significant receding at the temples and forehead; may also include some crown loss
Type 4 temples, forehead and crown exhibit hair loss
Type 5 hair loss is significant
Type 6 patients show major hair loss, but still have areas with donor hair available. Transplanting is an excellent option for classes 1 through 6.
Type 7 advanced, significant loss of hair. There may or may not be sufficient donor hair for transplantation.
No two heads are alike. Don’t let anyone touch a hair on yours unless you are certain they possess the expertise and experience to restore your hair to a natural, undetectable state.
