Men's Hair Loss Treatment in Bolton

Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) or androgenetic alopecia is the cause of over 90% of all men's hair loss problems. It is usually an inherited condition that has passed down the generations and is recognisable by hair loss at the crown and a receding hairline at the front / sides.

The cause of pattern hair loss in men is mainly hormonal. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a hormone produced by both men and women from testosterone. Hair loss starts when specific receptors attract and bind DHT to the hair follicle. The hair follicles affected are those at the top, back and sides of the head that have DHT receptors.

As male hair loss progresses, hair follicles miniaturise, producing shorter, finer hairs. With each progressive cycle, the hair follicle produces a finer hair that grows for a shorter period of time, eventually resulting in hair loss.

male baldness scale

Hamilton–Norwood scale Of Male Pattern Baldness

The Hamilton–Norwood scale is used to classify the stages of male pattern baldness. The stages are described with a number from 1 to 7. The scale is regularly used by trichologists to assess the severity of baldness.

This measurement scale was first introduced by James Hamilton in the 1950s and later revised and updated by O'Tar Norwood in the 1970s. It is sometimes referred to as the Norwood–Hamilton scale or simply the Norwood scale.
