Male Pattern Baldness

In male and female pattern baldness, development time shortens, and the hairs are not as thick or sturdy. Occurring at every growth cycle, the hairs become rooted more quickly and effortlessly fall out.

Heredity likely plays a key role.

A history of pattern baldness in the family intensifies your risk. Heredity also affects the age at which you begin to lose hair and the developmental speed, pattern and extent of baldness.

Genes define an innumerable amount of key factors, including our sex, height and skin color, but they also play a key role in the characteristics of our hair.

What is Male Pattern Baldness?

Male pattern baldness is related to your genes and male sex hormones. It usually follows a pattern of receding hairline and hair thinning on the crown, and is caused by hormones and genetic predisposition.

What is Female Pattern Baldness?

Female pattern baldness involves a typical pattern of hair loss in women, due to hormones, aging, and genes.

Symptoms of Pattern Baldness

In men, the typical pattern of male baldness begins at the hairline. The hairline gradually moves backward (recedes) and forms an "M" shape. Eventually the hair becomes finer, shorter, and thinner, and creates a U-shaped (or horseshoe) pattern of hair around the sides of the head.

For women, Hair thinning is different from that of male pattern baldness. Hair thins mainly on the top and crown of the scalp. It usually starts with a widening through the center hair part. While the front hairline vestiges, total baldness is rarer.

Diagnosing Pattern Baldness

Male pattern baldness is regularly identified based on the appearance and pattern of the hair loss. A skin biopsy or other advanced procedure can be used to diagnose further disorders that cause hair loss in men.
