Notes from Capri Hair Restoration Director Tim Claxton

Understanding Male Pattern Hair loss

It’s hardly uncommon for men to experience some hair loss in their life—whether it’s fairly
minor or it’s extensive. While there are many conditions that can lead to hair loss, the most
common by far is male pattern hair loss, or as it’s sometimes known, male pattern baldness.
Just how common is this condition? More than 95 percent of all male hair loss is caused by it.
What’s more, half of all men over the age of 50 will experience its effects. And while it’s never
fun to notice your hair line receding, the good news is that there are treatment options that can
effectively restore your hair to its proper volume.

Causes of Male Pattern Hair Loss
Before we get into treatment, though, let’s take a step back and consider the causes of male
pattern hair loss.

Most fundamentally, male pattern baldness is a hormonal issue. A surplus of male sex
hormones, called androgens, can disrupt the normal growth cycle of your hair. Specifically,
these androgens might cause hair follicles to shrink, and ultimately inhibit their ability to
produce new hair.

Male pattern hair loss is generally thought to have a strong genetic component, meaning it’s
something you might inherit from a family member.

Signs of Male Pattern Hair Loss
But how do you know that it’s male pattern hair loss that’s causing your follicular problems, as
opposed to some other condition? It’s right there in the name: Those with male pattern hair
loss will experience shedding in a particular pattern.

Generally, hair loss will begin at the temples or at the crown of the head. The hair line recedes
in an M-shape, and in some men it may progress even beyond that. If you notice this pattern of
hair loss, that’s a fairly clear diagnosis.

The good news for men who experience hair loss is that they don’t have to settle for it. There
