Male Pattern Baldness Treatments

Male Pattern Baldness is a distressing condition that is unfortunately all too common. Hair loss can begin in a man’s early 20s or even during his teenage years, and treatment options can be limited once it progresses beyond a certain point.

Treatments for Male Pattern Baldness in Dublin

The primary treatment for male pattern baldness is a topical medication applied directly to the scalp. It is an effective treatment for mild to moderate cases. It works by tricking the hair follicles into believing they are receiving more blood than they actually are, and this stimulates hair growth.

This drug is often combined with another medication, which blocks the enzyme that converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This reduction in DHT slows or stops male pattern baldness in many users.

Laser hair growth therapy is another non-invasive treatment used for male pattern baldness. Here, affected areas are exposed to a low-level laser irradiating photons into the scalp. The photons are believed to stimulate weakened cells, resulting in hair growth. Also called red light therapy, this treatment is generally painless and won’t require any downtime.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is another treatment for pattern baldness that is growing in popularity. It involves taking your own blood, processing it, and injecting it into your scalp. While some studies show it is effective, it is not recommended for everyone. For example, if you are on blood thinners or a heavy smoker or drinker, your hair and scalp specialist may advise against this treatment.

If your hair loss has advanced to a stage where conventional treatments cannot stimulate follicular activity, our resident hair transplant surgeon will be happy to discuss surgical options with you.

What Is the Best Treatment for Male Pattern Baldness?

While these treatments are effective, they do not work for everyone. This is because hair loss is different for each person. A one-size-fits-all approach to treatment won’t work. Factors such as age, medical history, and severity of condition need to be considered to successfully treat hair loss.  

Ultimately, determining the right treatment for your hair loss entails seeing a trichologist or dermatologist. Proper diagnosis is the first step in the treatment process. Hair and scalp specialists have the knowledge, experience, and tools to assess your condition and determine the cause of hair loss.
