Did you know that in the UK there are currently 6.5 million men who have male pattern baldness and that by the age of 35 most of them will have experienced the onset of hair loss?
Losing one’s hair can impact on relationships, health and overall confidence, especially if the symptoms appear when we’re still quite young. But what are the causes and is there a solution?
Depending on the type of baldness, patients generally have access to two main treatment types: medication and transplantation. A major advance in hair transplantation in recent years has been follicular transfer which mimics the way hair grows and has proven to be highly effective.
Other treatments such as the use of tablets can also be successful, but are usually quite limited as they only work for a select number of men. Check out the neat infographic below for the rest of the stats.
