How can men prevent baldness

Hair loss, also known as alopecia, is more common in men than in women. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalances, stress, diet and other health conditions. The onset of baldness in men can usually begin around the age of 20, and the risk of alopecia increases with advancing age. If you notice that your hair has started to fall out more than usual, you should take a step back, assess your lifestyle and identify the potential factors that have brought you to this situation. Then you can ask for help before you go bald. At Deluxe Clinic we offer baldness prevention treatments for men* (but also for women) with PRP, a revolutionary technique that works by stimulating hair growth and improving scalp health.

Why are men more prone to hair loss?

Alopecia is more visible in men than in women. Androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, is the most common form of hair loss in men and is caused by sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a male hormone that affects hair follicles. This genetic sensitivity causes the hair follicles to gradually thin and close, eventually leading to baldness. Apart from male pattern alopecia, men can also be affected by other forms of hair loss, such as alopecia areata (patchy hair loss) or alopecia totalis (complete loss of hair on the head).

One thing’s for sure, hair loss can have a significant impact on men’s self-esteem and emotional health, sometimes leading to anxiety and depression. For this very reason, many men seek solutions to reduce hair loss before they go bald.

Do anti-hair loss products work?

Most of the time, no. The effectiveness of anti-hair loss products can vary depending on factors such as the cause of hair loss, the type of product used and each person’s individual response. Some products may be more effective than others, and results may differ from person to person. It is important to consult a doctor or dermatology specialist before starting any hair loss treatment, as they can help you identify the cause of hair loss and recommend the most appropriate treatment for your specific situation. It is also important to have realistic expectations and understand that treatments may take time to show results and that adjustments or changes may be needed over time.

What about hair PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the treatment options for baldness and hair loss. PRP involves using the patient’s own blood. A small amount of blood is taken and centrifuged to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components. The platelet-rich plasma is then re-injected into the patient’s scalp. PRP works by stimulating hair growth and improving scalp health. Platelet-rich plasma contains growth factors and other chemicals that can promote cell regeneration and blood circulation, thus helping hair growth and slowing or stopping the balding process. The effectiveness of PRP treatment can vary from person to person. Some studies have shown a significant improvement in hair density and scalp health after regular PRP treatments. However, individual results may be influenced by a variety of factors, including the cause of baldness and the stage of baldness.

We look forward to seeing you at Deluxe Clinic to identify the causes of hair loss and see if PRP treatment is right for you! Such a treatment can greatly increase your self-esteem.

* Statistics have shown that men are experiencing alopecia in much higher numbers.
