male pattern baldness


Hair loss among men is an alarming concern that men frown upon. Other than self-esteem going down the drain, men lose two more crucial things when they go bald – the hair, and their confidence. Thick, curly hairstyles were key elements at play that reflected a man’s youth and masculinity.

To smack with a blowing fact a Ph.D. researcher from the University of Pennsylvania stated “Hair loss signals aging” says Albert Mannes.

Hair loss in men is more psychological than physical which pertain to the fact of losing a credible feature of the image of your handsomeness. Most men are hit with hair loss predicament as early at the age of 35. In some cases, men begin to shed hair due to hereditary ‘alopecia areata’ contouring the blame onto genetics.

Moreover, there’s another condition of losing hair is because of DHT which is by product of testosterone; DHT is responsible for shirking hair follicles which subsequently is to blame for a receding hairline and thinning crown.

Male Pattern Baldness

Male Pattern Baldness

Risk of losing hair, but the risk of losing personality

1536 men from different walks of lives showed classic signs of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness when they were given questionnaires for a survey conducted in the EU zone that lead to startling fact finding. At the thought of realization of losing hair, 43% said they lost personal attractiveness, 37% took in the fact they were slowly aging.

Male-pattern baldness is a phenomenon which is more common in men than women leaves with least of the options to recover the hair lost. The psychological and emotional factors play downward for the patient in this case men suffering from hair loss develop the fear of being social with others due to ‘in acceptance’; they lose the advantage of dating, and the lost confidence rebounds only when patients had successful hair transplants or ‘grafting’.

6.5 million Men in the U.K alone suffer from male-pattern baldness.

Men or women identify either the latest ‘direct extraction technique’ FUE (follicular unit extraction) or choose FUT (follicular unit transplantation) to get the best hair loss treatment for their lost hair.

FUE Technique Specialist: Dr. Alvi Armani International

Dr. Alvi Armani takes great pride in having decades of field experience in hair transplant and medical research conducted during his years of practice in Ontario, Canada. FUE – a minimally invasive procedure – is the most chosen treatment around the world because of the following reasons:
* it is minimally invasive meaning patients can retrieve to their daily routine just after a few days of surgery.
* It is less painful; chances of rapid recovery and healing are always high.
* FUE is precise means it does not leave scars because of its ‘direct extraction’ of follicles from the donor site to recipient area.
*there’s no chance of lesions or big scars over donor area or on the scalp

AlviArmani FUE Steps

Dr. Alvi Armani is an award winning hair transplant specialist whose graduating years with honors from the University of Toronto lead him to invent his rare AlviArmani Vitruvian FUE method which has earned top ratings for the best hair loss recovery method worldwide.

Dr. Armani has chain of most advanced surgical restoration clinics in Beverly Hills (U.S), New Delhi (India), and Buenos Aires (Argentine) are successfully operating in your area; highly trained staffs of surgeons including Dr. Baubac Hayatdavoudi, Dr. Juan Manuel Rodriguez and Dr. Arihant Surhana, are renowned for their art of hair grafting have many success stories to share.


Researchers have been able to regrow hair on bald patches by injecting the heads of follicular-challenged volunteers with a solution from their own blood.

The new treatment stimulates new stem cells below the skin which can assist regrowth, say specialists.

Injections of “platelet-rich plasma” (PRP) which have been extracted from the blood, are already used to combat ageing on the face and hands, reported the Sunday Telegraph.

In the latest research by scientists at the International Hair Research Foundation, the University of Brescia in Italy and the Hebrew University Medical Centre in Israel, used 45 volunteers with alopecia areata, affecting 2% of the population.

The patients had injections on one half of their head. Some were given the PRP, some traditional steroid cream, while others received a placebo.

Three treatments were given every month. Hair growth was checked by measuring the area where new hairs grew on the bald scalp.

Results showed the plasma injections led to significant hair regrowth in the bald patches, compared with the placebo and the steroid treatment.

Following the publication of the study in the British Journal of Dermatology, the scientists are hoping to develop a cream, so needles won’t need to be used.

Dr. Fabio Rinaldi told the Sunday Telegraph the new treatment could also help those suffering more common hair problems like male-pattern baldness.

He said: “We think it can help to regrow hair on people with androgenic alopecia. We believe it is the best treatment available, apart from surgery.”

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have discovered a biological clue to male baldness, raising the prospect of a treatment to stop or even reverse thinning hair.

In studies of bald men and laboratory mice, US scientists pinpointed a protein that triggers hair loss.

Drugs that target the pathway are already in development, they report in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

The research could lead to a cream to treat baldness.

Most men start to go bald in middle age, with about 80% of men having some hair loss by the age of 70.

The male sex hormone testosterone plays a key role, as do genetic factors. They cause the hair follicles to shrink, eventually becoming so small that they are invisible, leading to the appearance of baldness.

Now, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have analyzed which genes are switched on when men start to go bald.

Researchers found levels of a key protein called prostaglandin D synthase are elevated in the cells of hair follicles located in bald patches on the scalp, but not in hairy areas

Researchers found levels of a key protein called prostaglandin D synthase are elevated in the cells of hair follicles located in bald patches on the scalp, but not in hairy areas.

Mice bred to have high levels of the protein went completely bald, while transplanted human hairs stopped growing when given the protein.

Prof. George Cotsarelis, of the department of dermatology, who led the research, said: “Essentially we showed that prostaglandin protein was elevated in the bald scalp of men and that it inhibited hair growth. So we identified a target for treating male-pattern baldness.

“The next step would be to screen for compounds that affect this receptor and to also find out whether blocking that receptor would reverse balding or just prevent balding – a question that would take a while to figure out.”

The inhibition of hair growth is triggered when the protein binds to a receptor on the cells of hair follicles, said Prof. George Cotsarelis.

Several known drugs that target this pathway have already been identified, he added, including some that are in clinical trials.

The researchers say there is potential for developing a treatment that can be applied to the scalp to prevent baldness and possibly help hair regrow.
