What is Male Pattern Baldness?

Although there are many causes of hair loss for men, the most common is Male Pattern Baldness also known as Androgenetic Alopecia.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the testosterone which causes hair loss. It attaches itself to hair follicles causing them to shrink over time, becoming thinner and thinner until you are bald on the top of your head. This condition can either be genetic or environmental, meaning it could have been passed down by a family member or it may be down to a person’s lifestyle choices, for example, stress or diet.

How We Can Help

There’s no need to suffer – Improve your confidence with a full head of hair. We primarily focus on the stimulation of the hair follicles to increase blood flow underneath the scalp to the skull. We also remove dead skin cells to push the skin to produce new skin cells, promoting a healthy natural growth for men.

If you prefer a non-surgical route we offer a range of treatments such as Laser Hair Growth, which consists of regular therapy sessions specifically stimulating each follicle proven to work.

We can’t stress the importance of aftercare if we perform a hair loss treatment. For example, for a FUE Hair Transplant, we recommend professionally washing your hair, every day, for at least 10 days afterwards the surgery. Without doing so, it could result in adverse effects – For example, a transplant alone could lead to losing all existing hairs faster!

Receding Hairline

receding hairline treatment UK
One of the most common patterns of hair loss is a Receding Hairline, this is where the hair is lost either side of the forehead, looking triangular in the middle. This might be the only area for some men, but others may notice thinning at the crown, which may also be balding.

If you think you might have a receding hairline and want a solution, speak to our hair loss specialists today for more information about what treatments we provide.

General Thinning

Thinning hair treatments
If you’re unsure, General Thinning is hair loss spread evenly over the top of your scalp. Some may also notice a distinct receding hairline or thinning crown, but in most general thinning cases it can take longer to identify.

However, don’t panic – if you think you’ve left it too long, there are a range of treatments available to successfully prevent or reverse any effects of hair thinning.

Thinning Crown

Male hair loss treatment
The top of your head is called the ‘crown’ or ‘vertex’ – some men will experience thinning here, resulting in the scalp becoming visible, and soon after a bald patch may appear. This may work with a receding hairline, but most men will have one or the other.

The extent or the pattern is different for every person, and this is very common for most men. So, if you think you’ve noticed signs of hair loss on your crown and want to act fast before it gets worse.


alopecia treatment
Alopecia Areata is a condition which is seen frequently by our specialists, it consists of stages of patchy hair loss due to hair follicles rapidly entering the ‘resting’ phase. It can be genetically passed down and can appear at any time in a person’s life, but there may be an external trigger such as shock or stress.

Depending of the severity of the condition and the stage it’s at, the treatment we provide can be very successful. Read our success stories, giving you inspiration, motivation and hope in the specialists at Este Medical Group.

Severe Stress (Telogen Effluvium)

severe hair loss
A person may be experiencing hair loss because of recent stress or shock, this pattern is known as Telogen Effluvium. Hair loss will take place approximately three months after the event which caused shock or stress.

Signs of this pattern include: increased shedding following the event, thinning hair and patches of hair being lost. Start your hair growth journey today – We are here to help you every step of the way.
