Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss for men, affecting up to 70% of men at some point in their lifetime. Male pattern baldness is related to genes and male sex hormones and most typically follows a pattern of progressive hair loss at the temples and at the crown. This occurs due to a hereditary susceptibility of hair follicles to shrinkage due to the influence of androgenic hormones. 
Hair loss or thinning is a common concern as we age, as our hair follicles can deteriorate and slow the growth of the hair. We normally shed 50 to 100 hairs a day, however hair is constantly growing so this usually isn’t obviously visible. However, noticeable hair loss occurs when the cycle of hair growth is disrupted or if hair follicles are damaged and replaced with scar tissue. 
Hair loss, or the thinning of hair over time, is a common concern for both men and women, whether caused by genetic, stress related or other medical conditions, or poor nutrition and haircare. With continued research and advancements in technology, scientists and experts in the field are finding better ways to improve the condition, and restore or even reverse the effects of hair loss disorders. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), is one of these newer techniques, providing effective results in aiding the treatment of hair loss. 
Hair loss and hair thinning are very common. As we age, our body changes in many aspects and changes to our hair are part and parcel of that. It is also common to experience hair thinning and hair loss for other reasons. An illness such as cancer for example and its’ accompanying treatments can and often do cause changes to hair growth. How you deal with the thinning or loss of your hair is entirely down to your personal preferences and requirements, and there are many alternatives that you can try and products you can buy. Not all are proven though. However, if you have tried other treatments and are still looking for improvement, then surgery for hair restoration could be the answer. 
Hair loss is a common medical condition, which can affect both men and women at any age. The NHS has stated that over 8 million women in the UK suffer from alopecia (the general medical term for hair loss), and male pattern baldness is one of the most common types of hair loss, which usually affects those who are near the age of 50.* 
Hair transplants are a popular solution for hair loss and are sought after by both men and women of all ages. It is not just male-pattern baldness that can cause hair loss but many other factors including stress, hormonal changes, illness or medication. When finding yourself in this predicament there are several options to restore confidence and having a hair transplant is considered one of the most effective.
