What is Male Hair Loss?
While hair loss is not isolated to just men, the condition is most common among males. Most men who deal with hair loss have androgenetic alopecia, also known as hereditary male pattern baldness. The most frequent area affected by male pattern baldness is the hairline because it will gradually begin to recede, and the crown of the head, thinning over the bald spot and becoming bigger. Research has shown that hair loss is a result of inheriting a genetic predisposition to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of testosterone that shrinks the hair follicles. At Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher provides advanced treatments to boost hair growth. If you're frustrated by male pattern hair loss, please schedule an appointment with us in San Antonio, TX.
How We Treat Male Hair Loss
Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic provides hair restoration consultations for men who have extensive hair loss and for those who are beginning to notice hair fall out in specific areas. Using advanced diagnostic technology, Dr. Boucher will examine your scalp to generate a comprehensive measurement of hair depth, hair length, and how much hair is in a particular location. After learning about your health history, medications, styling practices, and lifestyle, he can discuss the likely reasons for your hair loss and provide your options for hair restoration treatments. Dr. Boucher and his team will develop a customized treatment plan that fits your needs and goals. A nonsurgical treatment, like PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, hair growth medications, or low-level laser therapy, may be suggested.
