How to deal with thinning hair

Around 40% of men will have to deal with some degree of hair loss by the age of 35, and the figure raises by over 50% by the age of 60. For most men, experiencing some kind of hair loss is an inevitable symptom of aging, although for countless others, the affects of more pronounced and premature hair loss can be crippling to self-esteem and body confidence.

Many men simply accept hair loss, with British men leading the pack for those least likely to do anything about it. In fact, over three-quarters of British men surveyed about hair loss believed the process couldn't be prevented. At the Ailesbury Hair Clinic, we not only help stave off the progression of hair loss, we can help revitalize and restore a healthy head of hair.

Common causes of hair loss in men

Although thinning hair can be the result of any one of a number of conditions, the number one cause of hair loss in men is Male Pattern Baldness (MPB). MPB is a genetic condition that causes an excess buildup of a hormone called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a bi-product of testosterone production, which can attach to hair follicles, shrinking and damaging them over time. The condition can be passed down by one or either parent, meaning some sufferers are often surprised by the initial onset of crown thinning and hair loss, and are unprepared to deal with the progression and management of their condition.

Signs and symptoms

A receding hairline is often the telltale sign of male pattern boldness and a signature symptom of almost every hair loss disorder found in men. Those suffering this pattern may experience hair receding all the way to the crown, leaving behind a trademark 'widow's peak'. Other sufferers may be experience hair loss of the crown, while others might notice a more widespread thinning of hair across the entire scalp.

Hair loss treatment at Ailesbury

Whatever's causing your hair loss, you're guaranteed a bespoke treatment to help restore and replenish a natural head of hair at Ailesbury. Patients will be prescribed a treatment tailor-made to their needs, with expert one-on-one consultations to establish the progress of your condition, hair density and what treatment specs are best suited to you.

Aesthetic Hair Integration

When it comes to combating the aesthetic affects of hair loss, there's numerous treatments available to patients. At Ailesbury, we recommend the FUE(Follicular Unit Extraction) method of hair restoration, an innovative process where the hair follicle is gently extracted and expertly implanted at a refined angle and direction to create a more natural looking result. You're guaranteed great results when you opt for FUE, with non-invasive procedures that require no sutures, scalpels or strip extraction.

The AHI variation of this method is that we use a specially designed implantation pen to place hair follicles at exactly the correct angle and direction, in order to create extremely natural results. There is no need to use scalpels, sutures or surgical strip extraction during the procedure as the whole approach is minimally invasive. The hair transplant procedure is fully guaranteed.
