Male Pattern Baldness
Male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) is the most common form of hair loss for men. About 85% of men will experience some amount of male pattern baldness in their life. The main culprit is genetics which cause the hair follicles on top of the head to be sensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Over time, DHT causes the follicles to shrink and produce finer, weaker hairs, until eventually the follicles don't produce any visible hair at all. The pattern typically begins with a receded hairline, and eventually progresses to thinning of the crown and hair loss on the entire top of the head.
The Hamilton-Norwood scale is used by hair loss experts to classify different levels of hair loss. Stage 1 is the least severe, and stage 7 indicates total baldness on top of the head. A patient with Norwood 1-3 hair loss typically presents with mild to moderate hairline recession. Norwood 4-5 patients have severe hair loss in the frontal zone, with significant thinning in the crown. Norwood 6-7 represents near-total or total hair loss on the entire top of the scalp. There are also some less-common variations of male pattern baldness, such as diffuse thinning on the entire scalp without hairline recession, or hair loss in the crown with no receding hairline.
Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a unique, non-surgical solution for male pattern baldness. SMP can effectively restore anyone to a full head of hair, regardless of the severity of their hair loss. Unlike hair transplants, which rely on a limited supply of donor hair grafts to cover the scalp, SMP is capable of creating unlimited levels of new hair density with instant results and no down time. At Zang SMP, you will receive the highest-quality, most natural looking scalp micropigmentation treatments in the entire world. Our track record is second to none, and we have the most experienced and expertly-skilled practitioners in the entire industry.
