Male hair loss can be caused by one or more factors including genetics and certain diseases. Regardless of its cause, the sooner a patient seeks medical attention, the better.
The primary culprit in men’s hair loss is dihydrotestosterone or DHT. Finasteride (PropeciaTM and ProscarTM) can reduce the amount of DHT in the scalp and significantly reduce future hair loss. It is important to be evaluated by a physician who understands and treats hair loss since there can be other causes of your hair loss.
In most cases, reversing the effects of hair loss involve a permanent transplant of hair from the back of the head to the hair line, or crown. The transplanted hairs are not affected by DHT so this option is considered permanent. Only an FUE specialist can evaluate the causes of your hair loss, the degree of loss already suffered and the best option for an individual patient to treat their specific condition.
In a personal consultation with your FUE specialist, you can discuss your options and the costs and benefits of the treatment options.
Again, regardless of the degree of hair loss or the underlying causes, the sooner you seek medical advice from a qualified FUE specialist, the happier you will be with your outcome.
