Genetics is the reason why 95% of men lose their hair, known commonly as male pattern baldness and medically as androgenetic alopecia. The presence of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the main reason for the condition and unless a man takes action, hair loss will be gradual and permanent.
There is no way to predict just how much hair men will lose but those who start losing hair between 20 and 30 years of age are more likely to lose a greater amount of hair than those who experience hair loss later in life. Studies show that the sooner a man acts to correct the condition, the more likely he is to regenerate healthy hair growt.
As previously mentioned, DHT is the culprit of male pattern baldness. It limits the growth phase as well as the thickness of each strand of hair, causing a change in the ratio of hairs in the growth (anagen) stage and those in the rest (telogen) stage, favoring the hairs at rest. The hair follicles, however, no matter the stage, are still alive and have the potential to produce hair as they did prior to the onset of male pattern baldness.
The latest non-surgical method to control baldness and reverse hair loss in men and women is laser hair therapy. The treatment has been effective at reducing hair loss, hair miniaturization and thinning hair. Scientific studies, such as that conducted by the International Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology, show that the energy produced by a low-frequency laser effects the scalp by improving blood circulation to the hair follicles. The energy generated by the laser also promotes the metabolism of cells by increasing the delivery of nutrients and oxygen and defends against hormones such as DHT.
Professionals providing laser hair therapy use precision equipment that transmits the exact amount and frequency of energy that each particular patient requires in order to stimulate the cells completely without oversaturation, thereby delivering the best results possible. Each patient is evaluated individually and a personal therapy plan is created for him.
