Hair loss in men is so common that as many as 85% of all men will experience considerable thinning or balding before the age of 50. While anyone can experience hair loss, it’s more typical in men than women. Unfortunately, many men will keep their hair loss hidden under hats or let it go untreated. It is important to remember that there are solutions that really work. Get the facts so you can make the right decision when it comes to restoring your hair.
What Is Male Pattern Baldness?
Male pattern baldness refers to a loss of scalp hair in men. This occurs as a man’s hormone levels change during the aging process. Although hair loss is a natural part of the aging process, it still takes a toll on many men. Male pattern baldness is hereditary. It is the most common reason men lose their hair. Early in the process, men will notice a receding hairline beginning at the temples or thinning at the crown. As the condition advances, the hairline recedes to the point where it meets the bald spot at the top of the head. Eventually, all that remains is the hair around the sides and back of the head.
Men with this condition have inherited hair follicles that are sensitive to a hormone that causes the follicles to miniaturize and thin over time. Eventually, the follicles will no longer produce normal hairs and will only grow miniaturized hairs, which are almost undetectable. This type of hair loss can begin at puberty and is progressive, which means it is best to do something early on. The sooner you act, the more options you’ll have.
Common Signs of Balding
- A significant change in the way your hair reacts to being styled
- Thinning around the hairline or receding around the temples
- Hair growth is slower and thinner than usual
- You’ve started noticing more than normal hair on your clothes, in the sink, or shower
How much hair loss is normal?
It is normal to lose 50-100 strands a day. If you're noticing your hair getting thinner, it’s time to see a medical professional.
How can we help men with thinning hair?
Hair loss is progressive and often worsens over time. Therefore, the sooner you act, the more options you have. HairClub offers an array of solutions for any hair type or degree of loss.
Our enhancement options are non-surgical. They are ideal for people who wish to rapidly improve or change the look of their hair. These options work with your existing hair to add thickness and fullness or increase length or density. HairClub's Xtrands® treatment is a volumizing solution that maximizes the density of your hair. The Xtrands method involves locking in multiple precision hairs onto your existing individual growing hairs at the base of the scalp. Our Halo Hair Extensions and Tape-In Extensions offer clients infinite looks without the long-term commitment. The results are quick, easy, and won't disrupt your regular routine.
Our treatment solutions include the only FDA-approved ingredient clinically proven to regrow hair and slow further loss. Our EXT Extreme Hair® Therapy solution combines in-center visits with at-home products. It is most effective if you're in the beginning stages of hair thinning. Professional advice, digital progress tracking, and salon services will help you get back to the beautiful hair you love. HairClub also offers several FDA-cleared laser devices such as the LaserBand, LaserComb, Capillus®, and the LaserHelmet. These devices help promote hair growth and reduce further loss. They also increase hair density and promote healthy hair.
Hair restoration solutions include both surgical and non-surgical options. Hair restoration is best suited for those who are in the advanced stages of hair thinning or loss. Our Xtrands+® solution allows people to transform their appearance by blending new hair with their existing hair using a medical-grade adhesive. This solution is faster and much less expensive than surgery. BioGraft® gives you a full head of hair by combining surgical hair restoration with a non-surgical solution. This method surgically restores your hairline and fills in your thinning areas. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is an advanced surgical hair transplant. FUE is ideal if you're concerned about scarring. It can be used for most people in earlier stages of hair thinning or loss. Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a common outpatient surgical hair restoration technique that gives you permanent results. FUT regrows your own hair while providing density. RestorINK™ is an innovative, non-surgical restoration technique that replicates the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. Our specially trained practitioners apply a proprietary formula of pigment to the scalp with micro-fine needles. The procedure is like a tattoo, but the needle sizes differ and leave lighter impressions on the scalp. RestorINK is an affordable solution that can also be used to enhance existing hair restoration.
