But here you will learn more about the Androgenic Alopecia and its treatments for men.

Androgenic Alopecia:

It is also called male pattern baldness, as it is a hereditary issue that is innate from your family. It can attack older people and even youngsters.

Women are also affected by it. It can make your hair follicles weak and eventually you will have to suffer from hair loss. The excessive male hormones surround your hair follicles and can cause hair loss.

However, women may also undergo this type of hair loss after the menstruation cycle, because their hormones are less during this period.

How to Treat Androgenic Alopecia in Men:

  • Medications
  • FUE Hair Transplant

·         Medications:

Most commonly used medications to treat hair loss in men are Minoxidil and Finasteride. Sometimes these help to slow down the alopecia but are unable to permanently cure androgenic alopecia in men.

So these aren’t suitable for everyone who is suffering from alopecia. Hair regrowth medications work differently for every victim of hair loss, it depends on how one’s body responds to it.

Hair loss medications only help in controlling alopecia/ hair loss, if these are taken continuously and regularly without skipping any dose and day. And once your hair loss is stopped and you stop taking these medications, then you will again have to suffer from the hair loss because your hair will fall out again.

These medications work better on those sufferers of hair loss, who are suffering from a small amount of hair loss.

·         FUE Hair Transplant:

It’s a surgical but most advanced hair transplant procedure. The procedure involves the extraction of hair follicles from your donor areas or the back/ sides of your head. Then it’s implanted to your recipient region, you’ll notice visible growth within a year.

The transplanted hair will grow in a similar way as your existing hair. You will be able to see some hair growth after 2 months or so. Transplanted hair is long lasting and will stay with you forever.

Consultation with the Hair Transplant Surgeon is Necessary:

But before deciding to opt for a hair transplant procedure, to treat your androgenic or male pattern baldness, it would be better if you consult a hair transplant surgeon at the hair transplant clinic.
