Medical Hair Restoration Treats Baldness

One of the scourges of middle age is hair loss and balding. Nothing much makes a man look older than a big bald spot on top of his head or a hair line that is 3 or 4 inches above his forehead. When a man starts to lose his hair he can easily look ten or even fifteen years older than his actual age. What does this mean for you? It means if you want to look your best, whether you are entering the dating scene or you are new in the job hunt, you really need to deal with any thinning problems so you can look young and vibrant. Women don't want some washed up bald guy and neither do businesses.
OK, so you have decided to take positive steps to get your hair growing again, now the question is what will those steps be?
First, lets look at the most likely cause of premature hair loss in men. For about 95% of the cases, male hair loss is caused by a hereditary factor called Androgenic Alopecia. This genetic medical condition is passed down through the genes you inherent from your mother and father. It used to be thought that baldness was derived from the mother's side of the family but this is now known to be false. In fact, the genes responsible for hair loss in early or mid life are recessive which means they can skip a generation or two before showing up again. This is why it was assumed baldness could not be passed from the father. Many times a bald man can have sons who never lose their hair just like a man with a full head of hair can have sons with varying degrees of thinning including balding at the crown or a receding hair line and "widow's peak."
When a man expresses the genes for Androgenic Alopecia he is said to have Male Pattern Baldness. This condition is expressed by losing hair in certain patterns or areas on the scalp. A substance called DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is responsible for the attack on the hair follicles (hair roots) which cause them to slow down and then stop the normal production of keratin. Keratin is the substance which hair shafts are constructed of.
Once the follicles stop producing, the only effective cure is to use medical hair restoration surgery to remove some follicles from the donor site, located at the back of the head, and implant those hairs into the bald spot. This procedure used to be quite messy and painful but it has now been refined to the point that there is no longer any cutting and sewing of the scalp involved. Instead, a specially designed medical instrument it used to remove the individual hair follicular units and then implant them into the bald spot. Often times this procedure can be accomplished within a one afternoon visit to the hair restoration surgeon.
There is absolutely no reason why you should look fifteen years older than your actual age. Medical hair restoration can help you to get back your youthful appearance again if you are fighting hair thinning and baldness. Recent advances have made medical hair restoration costs much cheaper and easier to afford.
