What Causes Hair Loss in Men?

There’s good news and bad news. Your hair loss is probably genetic. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first.

The Bad News: Androgenetic Alopecia

For men, hair loss is pretty straightforward. Nine out of ten guys who start to see thinning hair can blame it on their genes. The technical name for male pattern baldness is androgenetic alopecia, and it’s the single most common cause of hair loss in the world. There’s no cure, so the goal of treatment is usually to prevent hair loss, to replace lost hair, or both. Untreated androgenetic alopecia will keep progressing until only a ring of hair is left around the head (hence the well-known “pattern”). Since it causes hair follicles to shrink and die off, this hair loss can’t easily be reversed.

Here’s the good news.

It might sound pretty bad, but you’re not in a terrible situation. First off, there’s probably nothing wrong with your health. Male pattern baldness is perfectly natural, and it’s a normal biological process. While we can’t keep alopecia from showing up, we can interrupt the process that causes hair to miniaturize and fall out. After decades of improvement and technological innovation, we can actually attack hair loss on several fronts at once. It does, however, require action.

The only cure that matters is yours.

We don’t have a complete, one-size-fits-all cure for male pattern baldness, and it’s not for lack of trying. Science has been working on a cure for centuries. Since we can’t expect a game-changing discovery next week, we take the best approach we can think of – fighting hair loss and restoring hair on an individual basis. At the end of the day, the only development that matters to you is fixing your hair loss. Anything else, no matter how good it is, just isn’t good enough.

Different Causes

To positively identify the cause of your hair loss and the solutions that will get real results for you, we need to do a complete hair and scalp analysis. This painless free evaluation pins down what’s causing your hair to thin or fall out and gives us a clear picture of what you can expect down the line. Here are some of the common male hair loss causes that we’ll look for.

  • Androgenetic Alopecia
  • Alopecia Areata
  • Alopecia Totalis
  • Trichotillomania
  • Scalp & Skin Disorders
  • Thyroid Problems
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Prescriptions & Medical Treatments
  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Vitamin Deficiencies

It’s all about you.

Once we know for sure what’s causing your hair loss, we can get real about results. It’s important to get your input because your satisfaction is subjective. We can only meet or exceed your expectations if we know what they are.
