Male Pattern Baldness aka Androgenic Alopecia

Over 60% of our patients receive treatment for Male Pattern Baldness in order to combat a thinning crown and their receding hairlines – both typical signs of genetic hair loss. Androgenic Alopecia, more commonly known as Male Pattern Baldness or genetic hair loss, is the most common cause of hair loss in men. It is also the most treated hair condition at The Belgravia Centre.

This type of hair loss is caused by the effect of male hormones (‘androgens’), on genetically predisposed hair follicles (the hereditary follicles passed down through your family). A reaction takes place inside these hair follicles, where the male hormone ‘testosterone’ is converted into the androgen ‘Dihydrotestosterone’ (‘DHT’) by an enzyme called ‘5-alpha reductase’. The DHT created during this process prevents new hair cells from growing, causing hair loss and often baldness.
