Hair Thinning/Balding For Men


Common Baldness / patterned alopecia / androgenetic alopecia (AGA)

Although a very common and extremely benign condition, balding can have a major psycho-social impact. AGA involves both genetic and hormonal factors Genetics determines both the density and the location of androgen sensitive hair follicles on site-specific areas of the scalp. Post puberty, a series of events triggered by androgens (mainly DHT) within these genetically programmed hair follicles transform terminal (thick) hair to miniaturized follicles (vellus hair).

Male Patterned Baldness (Mpb)

Causes for balding in men:

  • Genetic: autosomal dominant, polygenic and inherited
  • Systemic hormonal effects-androgens.
  • Local hormonal effects- like increase in receptor number, increased local DHT production, decreased local DHT degradation.
  • Role of oxidative stress
  • Hair cycle dynamics
