What is Male Pattern Hair Loss?
How Effective is Treatment for Male Pattern Hair Loss?
Treatment Options for Male Pattern Hair Loss
- Medication: Two medications are often recommended for male pattern baldness in the UK. Both finasteride and minoxidil can help by preventing further hair loss, but they won’t work for everyone. The only way to find out if they’ll be effective for you is to give them a try.
- Diet: Improving your diet or taking nutritional supplements can make a difference for some men. Ensuring that you’re getting the right nutrients will help to keep your hair as healthy as possible, but it won’t be enough to tackle male pattern baldness by itself.
- Surgery: Hair transplants can be an option if other treatments haven’t helped. Modern techniques can produce very realistic results, especially if you have healthy hair follicles on part of your scalp. These can be individually transplanted into the bald areas.
