Male hair loss

Male hair loss – Dr. Braun de Praun treatments

The three most common forms of hair loss in men

1. Genetically determined (androgenetic alopecia)

Typical signs: Receding hairline at the temples and circular bald spot at the back of the head.

Cause: Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) causes shortening of the hair growth phase. In most cases, the hair follicles are significantly hypersensitive to male hormones.

2. Circular hair loss (alopecia areata)

Typical signs: Begins in healthy individuals, even children.

Cause: Typically an autoimmune issue. May occur together with neurodermatitis, vitiligo, or thyroid problems. May resolve without treatment.

3. Diffuse hair loss

Typical signs: Hair thins all over the head.

Cause: Occurs a few months after an infection or chronic inflammation.

Other causes:

  • Anabolic steroids doping
  • Fungal infections
  • Severe stress
  • Deficiency of vital substances

Possible treatments: Depending on the cause of the hair loss, an individual treatment plan is recommended after hormone analysis or a trichogram.
