Male Pattern Baldness is the most common cause of hair loss in men. Around one fourth of the population start to see the symptoms of male pattern baldness in their twenties. Male Pattern Baldness may lead to frustration, feelings of self-consciousness, social isolation and sometimes even depression.

Below are the stages of hair loss in the way baldness progresses -

Stages of Baldness

  • Stage 1 - The standard baseline of the scale indicates no hair loss visible to the naked eye.

  • Stage 2 - The second stage commences with minor recession in the hairline area and some recession at the temple. People usually do not have considerable amount of hair loss at this stage. Stage 2A is reached when the recession has progressed across the entire hairline.

  • Stage 3 - At the third stage, the hair fall at the temples begins to progress. During the stage 3A, the frontal recession also advances with the hairline continuing to move backwards. Stage 3B occurs when there is evident hair loss on the crown are.

  • Stage 4 - In Stage 4, the frontal and temporal hair loss increases and the bald patch at the crown enlarges. At Stage 4A, the hair loss progresses past the mid-crown.

  • Stage 5 - At this stage, the bald area in the front enlarges and starts to become one with the bald area of the crown.

  • Stage 6 - During this stage, the bald area in the front and the crown continues to enlarge. The back part of the bald area is wider than it was in Stage 5.

  • Stage 7 - This the most aggressive and extensive stage of baldness with only a strip of hair remaining at the sides at the back and scalp.

Baldness Treatment

Advancements in medicine have made it possible to slow or stop the progression of hair loss, but successful hair loss treatment is largely dependent on early intervention. It is important to contact for professional help as soon as you notice baldness. It is easier to slow down the hair loss than stimulate hair growth. The hair follicles that stopped producing hair becomes dormant after about two years and cannot be revived. However, once significant hair loss occurred, non surgical hair loss solutions may be the best option. Hair restoration technology has magnificently advanced in the past few years. The revolutionary non surgical hair replacement procedures are now available to replace the lost hair with natural-looking results.
