Hair Loss in Men
Hair loss in men is common. Medical studies show that up to 40% of men will be losing hair by age 40. The percentage of men experiencing hair loss increases as you age.
Androgenic alopecia or genetic hair loss is the most common cause of hair loss in men. In genetic hair loss, the natural testosterone in men breaks down into DHT (dihydrotestosterone) and the DHT is not properly cleared away from the hair follicles. This leads to a progressive miniaturization of the hair follicle, leading to thinner and fewer hairs and eventually to the hair follicle dying.
Loss of hair can mean a loss of confidence at any age. Dr Pinette evaluates all types of hair loss and can review options that may work for you.
