Male Pattern Baldness Diagnosis & Treatments
What is Male Pattern Baldness?
Male pattern baldness follows a pattern of a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples. This is because over time, the hair follicles shrink and are unable to grow new hair, a change which is caused by hormones and genetic predisposition. Male baldness is also called androgenic or androgenetic alopecia and it's a condition that runs in families.
What Are Male Pattern Baldness Symptoms?
Thinning of the hair at the hairline, where it recedes and forms an M shape characterises this type of baldness. One of the best ways to assess the different stages of hair loss is considered to be the Savin Scale, developed by Dr Ronald Savin in the mid 1990s. The diagram below illustrates this.
