It’s Time to Understand Male Pattern Baldness, Its Causes, And Ways to Address Them
Male Patterned Baldness
Often occurring late in life of men, male pattern baldness occurs usually due to the changing hormone levels. Also known as Androgenic Alopecia, male pattern baldness simply defines a loss of hair on the scalp in men that starts to turn visible usually in the later years. This page is specifically drafted to inform you about the essential details related to this disorder, that’s been penned down by none other than Dr. Jangid, our professional and best hair surgeon in Delhi NCR.
Many men usually don’t consider hair loss as a matter of concern, considering it to be a natural part of growing old, which is definitely a myth that needs to be addressed at the earliest. Rather, it’s recommended to get a consultation the moment you realize the hair loss by visiting a professional hair clinic like SkinQure, that’s supervised by a professional dermatologist like Dr. Jangid, an Ex-AIIMS trained hair surgeon. He addresses the people believing this myth by stating that reportedly, hair loss in men can have links to several disorders, namely – diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, hypertension, etcetera.
Known by various names like male pattern hair loss and androgenetic alopecia, male pattern baldness is a commonest cause behind hair loss in males, carrying the potential to affect a wide male-centric population, approximately at the age of 50+ years. While some take it casually, others can be seen worried about it, thus getting a professional help in terms of restoring their lost glory, the hair.
Penning down his expertise in the dermatology world, Dr. Jangid states that the one of the primary causes behind the male pattern baldness, both genetically and formally is a hormone called DHT which is formed by the testosterone present in the body. The hormone starts to act on hair follicles, eventually impacting the natural growth of hair, reducing the growth and density of hair. Once the process becomes a constant one, the hair follicle ultimately becomes inactive, thus not able to produce hair shaft, resulting in the baldness on that area.
So, if you’re suffering from male pattern baldness and still unable to find the cause behind it, consider visiting SkinQure, one of the best hair clinics in Delhi NCR for an effective treatment.
Known as Hamilton Grade for Baldness, the stages of male pattern baldness vary from Grade 1 to 7, depending upon the occurrence of it in individuals. (See the pics)
The grading of hair loss helps to decide the treatment plans and outcome.
Since male pattern baldness is a genetic condition, there are high chances of oneness if family members like mother or father, either from the maternal or paternal side is bald. Although it entirely depends on the gene expression that carry the potential of making an individual turn bald.
With an active experience of more than a decade now in the dermatology world, Dr. Jangid says that sometimes baldness can occur despite not having any history of it in your family. The prime cause behind it can be the hormonal change and actions. Furthermore, sometimes the genes responsible for hair loss are inactive state in parents that turns expressive in your body, resulting in baldness.

Generally, both the medicines and therapies are considered to be effective for showing positive results in male patterned baldness. Though, it entirely depends upon the factors that’s causing the issue to surge. On a wider note, our hair transplant treatment is considered as the best option, offering a good result in restoring the hair growth that’s thick and healthy in nature.
Usually, it takes approximately 4-6 months’ post treatment for a visible change. Since it’s a long time in itself, Dr. Jangid will suggest you to continue with few prescribed medicines like Minoxidil that needs to be consumed for years.
After treating many patients successfully at SkinQure for over a decade now, Dr. Jangid says that hair transplant can be done when your hair is stable and the hair loss is not much in quantity. Thus, initially you can consider taking medicines and therapy treatment for stabilising your hair and later, can opt for hair transplant at a professional clinic like SkinQure.
This might be possible in cases depending upon person to person. On a general term, you can experience hair loss initially for 4-6 weeks due to the components of medicines you are consuming. But this shall stop soon once the medicine starts showing its affect, helping you grow hair, pushing the old hair which is already gone in the falling stage.
