loss at a young age can be upsetting.I
recommend you see a hair restoration specialist to evaluate the cause ie is it
genetic or related to other causes.If
it is related to male pattern balding starting one of the FDA approved
medications such as finesteride or minoxidil could be helpful in the treatment
and prevention of hair loss.
Thank you for your question. I suggest that you consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon. A long-term care plan may include Finasteride (prescription medication), Minoxidil (topical solution), and NeoGraft (permanent natural-looking solution).

Your biggest enemy is the
progressive thinning leading to a balding pattern that is not evident at this
point in time. The degree of thinning that you are experiencing would suggest
that you should see a doctor who most likely will get Bulk Measurements of your
hair to determine the degree of the thinning that you are presently having. If
the diagnosis is early genetic hair loss (the most common cause of hair loss in
young men), then the best treatment would be the drug finasteride which is
highly effective in men of your age and may not only stop the hair loss but
possibly reverse it. If you are developing a more advanced balding pattern the
best test to get will determine the Bulk Measurements of your hair and this
will show, over a one-year time frame, how effective the treatment will be.
Once you know this information, then you and your doctor need to develop a
MASTER PLAN which will define what you need to do over the years to come.
