Hair loss gradually becomes more of a problem as men age, particularly those afflicted with male pattern baldness. While the condition may seem common enough, it remains a very real concern for affected men, leaving many of them depressed, frustrated, and socially withdrawn, with their self-confidence seriously depleted. Fortunately, locals can find ways to address male pattern baldness, including surgical hair restoration by Bala Cynwyd practitioners, such as Dr. Anthony Farole, DMD.
Male Pattern Baldness
Also known as androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness starts with the conversion of some testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, which could cause the miniaturization of hair follicles until they can no longer produce fully-grown hair. It starts with the thinning of hair on the temples and mid-upper scalp, gradually spreading to the top of the scalp, leaving hair only on both sides, or none at all.
