What Is Male Hair Loss?
While hair loss is not a problem exclusive to men, thinning hair and baldness tend to be more common in males. Reports show that a certain degree of baldness affects two-thirds of men by the age of 35, whereas 85% of all men will experience considerable thinning of their hair from age 50. Approximately 95% of men experiencing hair loss may attribute their illness to androgenetic alopecia, or hereditary male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness most commonly affects the hairline (as it slowly recedes) and the crown of the head, causing bald spots that grow bigger over time. Though the root causes of androgenetic alopecia aren't completely understood, research indicates that hereditary hair loss is a consequence of having a genetic sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of testosterone within the male makeup. DHT is proven to shrink the hair follicles, which makes the hairs vulnerable to aging and falling out. Dr. Jonathan Cannella offers advanced treatment options to renew your hair loss and reverse the unwanted cosmetic effects of thinning or lost hair. We invite you to schedule an appointment at DuBois Hair Restoration in DuBois, PA to learn more about hair loss and treatment options.
What Are the Treatment Options for Male Hair Loss?
Before going over your treatment options, Dr. Cannella will first perform an examination of your hair and scalp. He may also ask about your medical history, family health history, medications you're taking, grooming practices, when your hair loss started, and your diet and habits to better determine which treatment is best for your situation. A unique treatment plan will be developed based on the severity of your hair loss and your own aesthetic goals.
For the earlier stages of balding, a nonsurgical treatment, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, hair growth medications, or low-level laser therapy, may be suggested. In more advanced cases, hair restoration surgery, like FUT (follicular unit transplantation) or FUE (follicular unit extraction), might be better. As you decide on an approach, Dr. Cannella will go over what you can expect with treatment and the results you may experience.

Dr. labrasca takes the time to explain and really cares about what the patient wants. He is doing my breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. He and his staff makes me feel like they care. I would not go to another plastic surgeon.
