Male Pattern Hair Loss

Male Pattern Baldness:

In Singapore and the rest of the world, the most common cause of hair loss in men is a genetic form of alopecia called Androgenetic Alopecia also known as Male Pattern baldness. This is an inherited condition when androgen are present in abnormal amounts. The gene can be inherited from the maternal or paternal side. The severity of hair loss is unpredictable. The severity increases with age and if the condition is present it will be progressive and relentless.

Hair fall in men is likely to occur primarily between late teen-age years and age 40-50, in a generally recognisable “male-pattern” baldness known as androgenetic alopecia. The thinning usually occurs in the late teens and 20s and progresses over time.

Men with male-pattern hair loss may have an expectation of losing hair if they have male relatives who lost hair in the same recognizably male pattern. Male-pattern alopecia is the most common cause of alopecia in men. Men who have this type of alopecia may have inherited. Men who start losing their hair at an early age tend to develop more extensive baldness. In male pattern balding, thinning of hair typically results in a receding hair line and baldness on the top of the crown with the sides remaining.

This happens when the new hair growth produces hair of a shorter growth cycle and are relatively thinner. At the same time kenogen increases in time which means the hair follicles are left empty, decreasing the density of hair. Usually the process takes as long as 10-40 years.

The final stage of male pattern alopecia leaves behind total baldness in the front and crown area of the scalp and a band of hair on the sides and back of the scalp. The late stages of male pattern of hair loss are irreversible due the limitation of active pores and healthy follicles essential for new hair growth.
