What is male-pattern baldness?

Male-pattern baldness typically appears first on the top of the head, or at the front of the head around the hairline. It can progress to become partial or complete baldness.

What are my treatment options for hair loss?

There are many different treatment options for hair loss and what is appropriate will depend on your condition. Topical agents like minoxidil are often prescribed to elongate the growth phase of hair. Your doctor may also prescribe oral medications.

What to expect when treating hair loss

Once you begin treatment, it’s common to see no visible change in the first three months. In fact, in the first two months, some people may notice that they’re shedding more fine hairs than they were before. This is temporary and completely normal.

Within the three to six month period, you may notice that hair loss has slowed, stopped, or in some cases, maybe even reversed. We recommend taking photographs to track your progress.

After six months, your hair loss may considerably slow or stop completely. Some patients may see signs of regrowth, which usually occurs first at the crown of the head. 

It’s important to note that the above are a general guide only. Results will vary from person to person and depend on the treatment you are using. Patients using topical medications such as minoxidil could see some progress in as little as two weeks. Oral medications typically take up to three months to show an effect. 

Consistent daily treatment is required for at least 12 months to maintain results and increase the chance of regrowth. Throughout this time, your doctor will follow up with you to discuss your progress and condition.

FAQ

What is alopecia areata?

Alopecia areata refers to sudden and patchy hair loss. It has a distinct appearance, causing circular bald patches on the scalp that may overlap. This condition is usually triggered by the immune system attacking the hair follicles. Treatment can be complex, so it requires review from both a doctor and a dermatologist.

What is telogen effluvium?

Telogen effluvium is a condition that results in temporary hair loss as a result of disturbances to the normal hair cycle. It is usually triggered by stress, shock or a traumatic event. The main symptoms of this condition is an increase in the amount of hair a person sheds compared to normal.  

Common causes include major psychological stress, poor diet, sudden weight loss, pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, surgery or illness resulting in high fever.

Treatment of telogen effluvium involves managing and addressing the underlying cause. Once this has been established and addressed, the normal hair cycle should resume. 

Treatments include addressing nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle modifications to manage stress and hormone replacement therapy if menopause is the cause.

How long do I need to be on treatment?

Treatment should continue for as long as you desire the clinical effect. However, age limits and medical restrictions will need to be considered. Once treatment is ceased, any hair that is gained will slowly fall out.

How does minoxidil work?

Minoxidil works by widening blood vessels and opening potassium channels. This increases blood, nutrient and oxygen flow into the hair follicle which stimulates hair growth.

How do hair loss treatments for men work?

One of the most common hair loss treatments for men is a drug known as a type II 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. It regulates the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which is known to shrink hair follicles. By targeting this hormone, scalp levels of DHT are lowered, which reduces hair loss and can potentially help to regrow your hair.

When does my hair loss require further investigation?

If you’re losing your hair, and it isn’t due to male or female pattern baldness, your condition will require further investigation. 

Hair loss can present in various forms and be the result of a number of factors, including autoimmune disorders like alopecia areata, hypothyroidism, fungal infections, post-partum, postpartum hair loss or telogen effluvium.

If you are male and at risk of prostate disease (family history, above the age of 40 and with symptoms), further investigation will also be required.


Why can’t I take prescription hair loss treatments if I’m planning on having a family?

These drugs may affect your libido, sexual function and fertility by reducing your seminal quality.

How do prescription hair loss treatments affect my prostate?

In higher doses, prescription hair loss treatments have been used to treat benign prostatic disease, so these drugs can alter PSA levels.

How do prescription hair loss treatments affect my sexual function?

Prescription hair loss treatments for men can cause loss of libido, erectile dysfunction and failure to ejaculate. Speak with your doctor about any side effects you're experiencing.
