Hair Loss

When our hair begins to thin it can be distressing and lead to a real knock in confidence for many of us, yet most men can overcome male pattern baldness and get on with our lives.

Thinning hair, which usually starts with the gradual recession of the hair line at the temples and the appearance of a bald spot on the crown, can start as early as in our teens and tends to leave us with much less hair by middle age.

Why do some men lose their hair through male pattern baldness?

We tend to refer to hairloss in males as male pattern baldness. It is caused by androgenic or androgenetic alopecia, which is a hereditary genetic sensitivity to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is our reaction to DHT that makes it possible for men suffering from male pattern baldness to then re-grow hair naturally.

All men produce the hormone DHT, but in many men there is a reaction to the hormone that causes a shrinkage in the hair follicles that eventually stops them producing hair altogether. Because the follicles remain in place it is possible to stimulate them to grow hair again and reduce or even reverse the thinning hair line.

UKMedix offer oral treatments that can help stimulate your hair growth, without the high cost and unnatural sudden changes associated with surgical procedures.

The simple oral treatment available from UKMedix is called Propecia and can help reverse balding to the extent that users can again enjoy a full head of hair. Propecia’s active ingredient is called finasteride which blocks the effect of the DHT hormone and consequently stops the loss of hair and can lead to new growth.
