Many men are genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness, which affects more than half of all men over the age of 50. Male pattern baldness treatment is available from Dr. Hayes Gladstone of Gladstone Clinic for the residents of San Ramon, San Francisco, Pleasanton and the surrounding communities in California.

What Is Male Pattern Baldness?

Under normal conditions, hair follicles produce new strands of hair whenever old ones fall out. In some instances, the hair follicle may shrink, producing thinner strands than before. Other times, follicles fail to produce new hairs at all. This hereditary condition is referred to as androgenic alopecia and is said to affect more than 85 percent of all men with baldness.

Male pattern baldness typically begins with a receding hairline at the forehead and thinning strands near the temples and crown. This often results in the hair forming an “M” shape when viewed from the front. A receding hairline may continue until a man is fully or partially bald.

Benefits of Male Pattern Baldness Treatment

Just because you are genetically predisposed to hair loss does not mean you have to put up with it. Dr. Gladstone has a number of remedies that can help you stop or slow down your hair loss, allowing you to look and feel as great as you once did.

Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Male Pattern Baldness Treatment?

Generally speaking, you will achieve the best results from male pattern baldness treatment when you visit Gladstone Clinic early on. That doesn’t mean that all hope is lost if your receding hairline has left you with a full or partially bare scalp. Modern methods of treating hair loss now mean there are more options than ever available for those who would like to regain a full, thick head of hair.

What Do I Need to Do Before Male Pattern Baldness Treatment?

Each method requires different preparation. You will receive more specific instructions from Dr. Gladstone once he devises a treatment plan.

How Long Does it Take to Perform Male Pattern Baldness Treatment?

That will depend upon the exact procedure being performed.

What to Expect After Male Pattern Baldness Treatment

Once you complete your treatment plan with Dr. Gladstone, you will receive aftercare instructions as well as advice on caring for your new head of hair.

Will I Have Scars After Getting Male Pattern Baldness Treatment?

Only in extremely rare cases, such as when undergoing a hair transplant or follicular unit extraction procedure. Even then, any scars you develop should be covered by your hair, and will therefore not be visible to others.

When Will I See the Results?

That will depend on your treatment plan, degree of hair loss, age, health, and a host of other factors.

How Long Will the Results of Male Pattern Baldness Treatment Last?

Some treatments provide more permanent results, while others are designed to minimize the amount of future hair loss. Dr. Gladstone can better advise you as to the type of results you can expect once you agree on a treatment plan.
