Symptoms of men's pattern baldness

The typical pattern of hair loss in men differs from women. Receding hairline from the lateral sides of the forehead is characteristic of Male-pattern hair loss. In women, the hair thins out all over the scalp, but the frontal hairline stays the same but thinner. There may be moderate female hair loss on the crown of the head, rarely progressing to total baldness as it may in men. With men's pattern hair loss, men notice a reduction in the hair around the forehead and the crown area.

When does men's pattern hair loss begin?

Male Pattern Baldness Dallas Hair Replacement for Men's Hair LossAndrogenetic alopecia varies from population to population based on genetic background. The Norwood Classification Scale shows the prevalence of mid-frontal hair loss increases with age. Receding hairlines and hair thinning on the crown are usually seen in males above the ages of 25 and affect 23% as they age in years.

Male-pattern baldness typically begins between the ages of 20 to 45 when testosterone increases, causing hair loss. Testosterone, a hormone that is present in high levels in males after puberty, is converted to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called 5-alpha reducer. DHT is a potent hormone, body and facial hair growth promoter that can adversely affect the healthy hair growth. In men, as they age, DHT slows down hair growth cycle. It weakens and causes the hair follicle to shrink & normal hair growth gradually decreases hair volume to complete baldness.
