Mild Male patterned hair loss

I was wondering if mild male patterned hair loss will eventually leads to full hair loss or could it (in some instances) stop progress any further without the help of medications?

Greetings, Thank you for your question.

The “Organic Hair Transplantation” method is a novel development in modern hair transplantation surgery practice which was developed with the efforts of our research and development department. Now; our successful hair transplantation results has evolved to a new era thanks to the “Organic Hair Transplantation” method. We can consider this new method as a revolutionary development.

“Organic Hair Transplantation” is based on injection of a mixture containing adipose derived stem cells obtained from own fat tissue of the patient to the scalp of the patient. The recipient area gets rejuvenated and the viability of transplanted grafts is increased with the effects of adipose derived stem cell injection. The injection of adipose derived stem cells also provides a better work area for the surgeon.

Male pattern hair loss is a progressive condition. Once you begin the process of loss, you will always experience loss. The degree of loss is unknown though. Some people begin having loss at a very young age, and have a very slow progression so that even in their late 40's-50's they still have a significant amount of hair. Meeting with a medical professional, whether hair transplant surgeon or dermatologist, and finding out your options is always the best course of action when experiencing hair loss.

Male pattern hair loss and its progression

Male pattern hair loss is genetic and progressive. It will slow down at some point when you are older, but until then to reduce the chance of hair loss and keep your native hair, it is best to start medical hair loss regiment routine.

Early hair loss in male

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 with the HAIRCHECK instrument which is very effective of predicting hair loss based upon early loss of your hair. It will 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.

Male pattern balding is generally slowly progressive but it does not lead to full balding in all men.The speed of balding and the final degree of balding you will reach depends on your genes and your current age.If you are 22 with balding and have a strong family history you have an increased chance to become quite thin. If you are 38 and just starting to thin and have a weak history of balding in the family, you probably won't develop that much balding through your life.Exceptions exist. Please see a dermatologist or physician specializing in hair medicine if worried.
