There are myriad hair loss treatments for baldness or, as it is also called, ‘male pattern baldness’. The name just reflects how men tend to lose their hair. It begins with a receding hairline and then the hair on the top of the head will start to thin, usually at the temples and crown. Eventually, the pattern of hair loss patches joins together to create baldness. The medical name for this is androgenic alopecia.
Male pattern baldness in men is a very common condition and around 6.5 million men in the UK are affected. Some men – think Prince William – can even start losing their hair in their twenties and thirties and this can cause real psychological and mental health problems.
What are the causes of male pattern baldness?
Male pattern baldness has a genetic origin. The male hormone, testosterone, is converted into something called DHT or Dihydrotestosterone which is a sex hormone that contributes to the development of male sexual characteristics including body hair. Rather perversely, DHT does not have a positive effect on the hair follicles including on the scalp and actually inhibits hair growth before stopping it altogether.
How to cure male pattern baldness
Unfortunately, there is no actual cure for male pattern baldness but one of the most effective types of hair loss treatment is Propecia tablets. These work by blocking the effect of DHT and its impact on the hair follicles so that hair production is not impeded or interfered with. Many men buy Propecia tablets and use them alongside other men hair care treatments including acupuncture, homoeopathic remedies, hair transplants and even wigs.
How long to Propecia tablets take to work?
The effect is not immediate, usually, you have to take Propecia for around three to six months before there is a visible effect. Balding may continue if the tablets are stopped. Data suggests that 90% of men who take Propecia will see some benefit and around two-thirds of that number will have renewed hair growth.
