The team at our hair loss clinic in Bournemouth and Wokingham have experience treating the following causes of hair loss in men:

Male Pattern Baldness

Male-pattern baldness is the most common type of male hair loss, affecting 6.5 million men in the UK. It starts with thinning of the hair, followed by wider hair loss. For a few men, this process starts as early as the late teens. By the age of 60, most men have some degree of hair loss. It is usually inherited and caused by oversensitive hair follicles. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is produced by the male hormone testosterone which causes the follicles to shrink and eventually stop functioning.

Receding hairline

It is called male-pattern baldness because it follows a pattern, usually starting with a receding hairline. Hair then thins on the crown and temples which leaves a horseshoe shape of hair around the back and sides of the head. If you have male-pattern baldness, there’s little you can do to prevent it from happening. Treatments can slow down the process, but there’s no cure.

Other Male Hair Loss Conditions

We are also experienced in male hair loss conditions including trichotillomania, telogen effluvium and cancer hair loss.
