The Facts about Male Hair Thinning

A large percentage of men exhibit symptoms of hair loss at one stage in their life. There are various causes of hair thinning that range from poor nutrition, side effects of a medication to a medical disorder. However, the main reason that men experience hair loss is because of heredity. When thinning hair is caused by hereditary genes, it is called male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia. As time passes, your hormones have a shrinking effect on the hair follicles, leading to a shortened hair growing cycle. The hair will slowly become shorter and thinner, until there is no new growth at all.


If a man already had thin and fair hair, hair thinning will be more noticeable. The hair thinning process and damage can be more severe if the hair has been consistently damaged from the chemicals that are used for dying your hair, or with applications of extreme heat from hair dryers and hair straighteners. Losing hair can be a very stressful time for men and can cause them to be very self-conscious. Although there are numerous products on the market that claim to reverse the slowing down of hair loss, those products are rarely effective.   The vast majority of hair thinning cases are used by genetic factors that are out of your control.


Dr. Yates understands that hair thinning and hair loss can be a big nuisance for many men and can make them look and feel beyond their years. When you are fighting a battle against a thinning head of hair, your choices are either surgical and/or non-surgical solutions. Although hair growth products and supplements will postpone the hair loss process, they will not stop the hair loss over time. Hair growth products are only a temporary fix since they will not solve the problem long-term. On the other hand, Scalp Micro Pigmentation is a long-term solution for hair loss.
