What is male hair loss?

Male pattern baldness is a common, genetic condition that leads to permanent hair loss. Male pattern baldness affects 50% of men over 50 years of age but can also affect men in their 20s.

The hair loss in male pattern baldness starts as a thinning of the hair at the sides and on the top of the head. So it’s this “pattern” that defines the condition and separates it from other types of hair loss.

While this form of hair loss in men isn’t serious and doesn’t need treatment, it is permanent and can be distressing. The loss of hair can affect your confidence and self-esteem. However, there are several treatment options available to stop your hair loss and even regrow new hair.

What causes male pattern baldness?

Male pattern baldness is a genetic condition meaning it’s in the genes you got from your parents.

Hair follicles on the head convert the hormone, testosterone, into a different form of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It’s believed that the gene for male pattern baldness causes the follicles to become sensitive to DHT and start to shrink. Eventually, the follicle stops working and no hairs will grow from it.

What hair loss treatments are available?

Common treatments for male hair loss include:

  •  – Finasteride, sometimes sold under the brand, Propecia, is a daily tablet with proven effectiveness for treating male hair loss.

 

What are the side effects of hair loss medication for men?

All medication comes with side effects, and it’s important to consider these when taking any medication. The side effects of Finasteride are uncommon and usually mild: rash, low mood, reduced sex drive and erection problems.

If you have any concerns about side effects of any medication you take, please speak to your GP.
