According to research, many men, at some point in their life, have experienced hair loss, which in 95% of cases is called androgenetic alopecia, the so-called baldness, known to all.
The occurrence of hair loss does not follow a specific linearity, but it is manifested in a cyclical way, presenting either a relapse or, sometimes, a stabilization.
Men who permanently notice a thinning on the scalp have a decrease in both hair density and quantity, as a result of hair degeneration or their gradual loss.
Male hair loss etiopathogenesis
- The effect of androgens on the hair follicle, a state which is determined by the time of birth, hence it is inherited (harmful genes by one or both parents)
- Anxiety disorders and psychological factors
- Lack of iron and conditions of the thyroid gland
- Environmental causes
- Chronic illnesses
- Special medications
- Bacteria or fungi (tinea capitis)
In the clinical picture of the patient, it is observed that the hairs fall faster than normal, while the new hairs grow ever thinner, or in the final stage in the form of fluff.
In the overwhelming majority, hair loss is located laterally on the forehead and at the top of the head, leaving, most of the time, the area above the neck, intact.
