What San Jose & San Francisco Men Choose for Hair Restoration
What Causes Men’s Hair Loss
For men, hair loss often represents one of the most dreaded aspects of growing older. In the United States alone, over 50 million men are currently experiencing some degree of hair loss. Whether small patches or large sections of hair are missing, losing one’s hair can cause lowered self-esteem and confidence.
Although the likelihood of developing male pattern hair loss is partially genetic, several additional factors increase men’s risk, including:
- Sustained periods of high stress
- Taking certain medications
Androgenetic alopecia, more commonly known as male pattern baldness, occurs when follicles in the scalp slowly become smaller. This happens in response to exposure to androgens, which are male sex hormones released at any time after puberty.
Normally, hair growth happens in three stages: anagen, catagen, and telogen. The anagen (or active) phase should last the longest, between 3 and 6 years. During male pattern hair loss, hair follicles spend more time in the telogen (resting) phase, resulting in less new growth.
