Men's Hair Loss


Hair loss is the main symptom of alopecia, which is divided into androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata, scarring alopecia, and diffuse alopecia.

Androgenetic alopecia is the most common form of hair loss, accounting for 95% of male hair loss cases.

What are the types of men's hair loss?

Hair loss refers to the shedding of hair from the scalp of a person. The condition can be categorized into different forms, including:


Normal Hair Loss

It involves the loss of approximately 50-100 hairs per day, which have completed their life cycle.


Age-Related Hair Loss

A reduction in hair density of about 10% is observed between the ages of 40 and 50 due to a decrease in the number of active hair follicles.


Seasonal Hair Loss

This refers to a seasonal increase in normal hair loss, mainly at the beginning of autumn.

Causes of Men's Hair Loss

Causes of male hair loss include chronic or skin diseases, side effects of medications, and stress. Seasonality, modern lifestyle, and genetics are noted as common contributing factors to its occurrence.

Research shows that genetic factors prevail over environmental ones, as heredity accounts for 81% of men’s hair loss. More specifically, genetic factors often determine the following about subsequent hair loss:

  • Age of onset
  • Pattern of appearance
  • Progression

Now, modern and specialized genetic tests can determine a man’s predisposition to alopecia.

Stress and Hair Loss

Stress and hair loss are correlated, with three specific types of hair loss being caused by elevated stress levels in the body: diffuse alopecia, alopecia areata, and trichotillomania.

    Symptoms of Male Hair Loss

    The most prominent symptom indicating the presence of male hair loss is the noticeable reduction in scalp hair density.

    The patient notices an accumulation of hair in various places, such as brushes, the shower, or on the pillow. Notably, there’s a lack of replacement for the lost hair, as typically expected.

    Diagnosis of Male Hair Loss

    The diagnosis of male hair loss is carried out by a specialized dermatologist through a clinical examination and analysis of the patient’s medical history. The doctor examines potential complications from medication, as well as hereditary factors.

    Concurrently, the modern and recommended examination, phototrichogram, is used, involving a special camera and software. This technology is used not only for diagnosing the condition but also for monitoring the progression of treatment results.

    Treatment of Male Hair Loss

    Treatment for male hair loss is performed by specialized dermatologist Dr. Apostolos Karalexis, based on the patient’s needs. When hair loss is due to reversible factors, such as hormonal imbalances, a conservative approach with medication is used.

    In more advanced stages, when there is noticeable thinning or severe baldness, surgical treatment is recommended. Specifically, an individualized diagnosis is made, and the corresponding treatment technique is suggested. The recommended hair transplantation techniques include:

    • FUE hair transplantation
    • Power FUE hair transplantation
    • FUT hair transplantation

    If you are also suffering from hair loss and are seeking a definitive, immediate, and painless treatment that will offer you an improved psychological outlook, visit the specialized dermatologist, Dr. Apostolos Karalexis.
