The baldness gene is passed on from either parent and causes hair loss in a specific pattern starting in the early 20’s. Hormones called androgens travel in your blood, and the gene makes your hair follicles sensitive to the androgen. Hair follicles then replace you older hair with miniaturised hairs until the new tiny hairs are unable to reach your scalps surface. Baldness results from progressive hair loss but this can be stopped.

Hair loss occurs in bursts during your life, with men reporting periods of excess shedding of their hair. The amount of men that suffer from male pattern hair loss is approximately 30% at the age of 30 and up to 50% at the age of 50. During the 1970’s scientists found and classified which androgen hormone was the biggest problem. 5- a reductase transforms testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Reducing the DHT in your body with medication will reduce hair loss by up to 70%.

Hair Loss Treatment Men, When To Come In?

As soon as you notice thinning hair come in right away because by the time you notice hair loss, 20% is gone already.

 

We can stop your future hair loss by 70% with medication, PRP and Factor 4 and good advice that works. Often we can grow your hair back also, especially at the top and crown.

 

Some men wait until the hairline has receded in the front corners, or the crown is gone and thats ok also because modern transplants are an excellent 100% guaranteed fix. Some come in with mild hair loss and some wait until most of it is gone because they have been to busy with life.

 

As one of the top hair loss treatment for men choices, FUE transplant has No cutting No stitches No pain and No scar running around your head. We also offer FUT for those who prefer a reduced cost and who wear their hair longer than a number 3.

The FUE and FUT discussion is easy for me but sometimes difficult for patients. If you need more than 3000 grafts in your lifetime then FUT will service you better with less overall scarring and a better quality result. 

FUE is good for those needing less than 3000 grafts over a lifetime. Take more than 3000 from the scalp donor with FUE and you get hair loss at the back and sides as well, meaning you will need to wear the hair longer there to cover that hair loss so you may as well have had FUT where below the line scar you can have a short back and sides no problem.

FUE (less than 3000 grafts) gives you the ability to cut the hair at the back and sides very short e.g. Number 1 or 2, because any marks left behind are tiny.

So less than 3000 lifetime grafts then FUE is ok. More than 3000 lifetime grafts and FUT is best.

We at HTM do both FUE and FUT so we can give you all the options. Please take care when attending new clinics and franchises that only offer FUE, they can only offer one procedure so they will try and convince you that FUE is best which clearly isnt the case for about 50% of men and 100% of women.
