Treat Male Hair Loss with NeoGraft
Over the years, you may notice changes to your appearance, like thinning, balding, or a receding hairline. Although you may not have expected it to happen until you are older, it might have occurred sooner. 25% of men have hair loss before the age of 25. While you may feel alone, it is quite common. Men’s hair loss affects two-thirds of males before the age of 50. Of those with the issue, it is often due to male pattern baldness. If you are among those who have noticeably thinning hair, there is a treatment option for you. NeoGraft can restore your confidence with hair restoration.
What Causes Male Baldness?
Hair loss can be a gradual process or happen suddenly depending on the cause. Sometimes, the effects may be permanent while other times it can be resolved by making simple changes, like improving your diet. Identifying the underlying cause is vital to creating an effective treatment. Often, it is the result of:
- Family history.
- Hormonal changes.
- Poor diet.
- Medical conditions.
- Radiation therapy to the head.
- A stressful event or illness.
- Over styling your hair.
Male Pattern Baldness
Male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) accounts for 95% of hair loss in men. It causes progressive thinning of the hair until a bald spot develops. It results from the hair follicles and cells being destroyed by a byproduct of testosterone, known as DHT.
Combating Male Hair Loss
On average, your hair grows about an inch every two months. Each strand sits in a cavity called a follicle. The hair generally remains in place for several years. Once it is shed, a new hair grows in its place. Most people lose 100 to 250 strands of hair per day. While it may seem like a lot, you have more than 100,000 hair follicles.
At any given time, about 85% of your hair is in the growing phase. When baldness develops, it is the result of the follicles shrinking or atrophying over time. This causes shorter, finer hair until the follicle is too small to produce a new one. This leads to scalp transparency and a lack of visual density of your hair.
Now, there are many medications available to treat the problem; however, they are not right for all types of hair loss and they come with several side effects. As an alternative hair loss treatment, many men are coming to prefer NeoGraft.
NeoGraft is a minimally invasive hair restoration treatment that uses your own hair to restore bald or thinning areas. The process involves removing groups of 1 to 4 hairs from the back of your head where your hair is naturally thinner. A unique extraction procedure reduces trauma to the donor follicles to create more successful results. The follicles are transplanted to the treatment area. In as little as 12 weeks, you will see new hair starting to grow.
