Young Males Battling Hair Loss

Androgenic Alopecia

If you are experiencing thinning hair earlier than expected, you’re not alone. Many of us have glanced at our reflection in the mirror and asked ourselves, “Why is this happening? How is this happening? And why?”

A condition called androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, is the most common cause of hair loss in men and is usually genetic. Roughly 25% of the male population begin to experience thinning hair in their early 20s. If you are in the first stages of hair loss in your early 20s, the best thing you can do is mentally prepare yourself for any potential or lasting change.


Why Young Males Experience Hair Loss

There are many reasons why young males experience hair loss. Physical conditions such as skin disease, vitamin deficiencies, immune disorders, or hormonal imbalances can cause thinning hair. Although losing hair is a sign of aging, it doesn’t actually directly relate to a certain age where everyone will lose hair the same way.

The balding pattern is almost always the same in androgenic alopecia. That is why it is called pattern baldness. Men who suffer from male pattern baldness will first start to notice thinning hair in and around the temporal area transitioning to a spread that travels backwards. The crown will eventually start to thin and spread forward until both the temporal balding and the crown thinning eventually meet up and result in no hair on the top of the head. Unfortunately, some men will experience thinning hair faster than others, depending on the strength of their genes that are responsible for the hair loss.

Hair Loss Treatment

Young men are more likely to be advised to use a hair loss treatment such as finasteride or minoxidil to combat hair loss. The potential issue with performing a hair transplant on a patient who is under the age of 25 is that hair loss is a progressive condition. Therefore, a patient has the possibility to experience extensive hair loss long into the future. A hair transplant is an option for the future, at the right timing and under the proper indications. Due to the limited amount of hair that can be extracted from the back and sides of the scalp, donor area density and extent are extremely important.

Even if you work hard to conceal your hair loss, you may still feel quite self-conscious. Once you are able to observe your own hair growing again, it can be an extraordinary shift in feeling. Fuller hair is often perceived to be an attribute directly associated with your youth. Renewing a receding hairline or adding density to thinning hair can also allow an individual to look many years younger. This can be an incredible transformation when taking into consideration the fact that your confidence is a major trait and is affected by thinning hair. As technology advances, hair restoration is becoming one of the most prevalent forms of cosmetic surgery for both sexes, and these numbers only continue to increase.
