Hair Loss in Men

The Med-Health 360 Prescription

Understanding Hair Loss in Men

Hair loss in men can be distressing, particularly if it starts at an early age or the hair loss is dramatic or extensive.  The causes of hair loss appear to be a combination of hormone levels, growth factors, and changes in the receptors to the hormones on the hair follicle.  Male pattern baldness, or androgenic alopecia, is the most common type of hair loss in men.  If hair loss begins prior to age 35, the cause is likely a strong form of testosterone called Dihydrotestosterone (or DHT). If hair loss begins after age 35, the cause is likely low thyroid.

At Med-Health 360, we have many treatment options for hair loss including hormone replacement therapy, protein rich plasma growth factor stimulation, medications such as rogaine and propecia, and hair transplantation.

Available Treatment Options for Hair Loss

  • Testosterone replacement therapy
  • PRP plasma rich protein growth factor enhancement
  • Medications such as Rogaine and Propecea
  • Hair transplantation

Causes of Hair Loss in Men

Causes of Hair Loss

  • Increased levels of DHA derived from Testosterone
  • Increased sensitivity of hair follicles to DHA
  • Low thyroid
  • Stress
  • High blood pressure

Treatment For Hair Loss in Men

Minoxidil - Rogaine

Minoxidil (Rogaine) is a topical medication applied to the scalp. Minoxidil slows hair loss for some men and stimulates the hair follicles to grow new hair. Minoxidil takes four months to one year to produce visible results. Hair loss often happens again when you stop taking the medication.

Finasteride - Propecia

Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar) is an oral medication that slows hair loss in some men. It works by blocking the production of the male hormone responsible for hair loss. Finasteride has a higher success rate than minoxidil. When you stop taking finasteride, your hair loss returns.

You must take finasteride for three months to one year before you see results. If no hair growth occurs after one year, your doctor will likely recommend that you stop taking the medication. Although it’s rare, finasteride can cause breast cancer. You should have any breast pain or lumps evaluated by a doctor immediately. Finasteride may affect prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests used to screen for prostate cancer. The medication lowers PSA levels, which causes lower-than-normal readings. Any rise in PSA levels when taking finasteride should be evaluated for prostate cancer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has actually been used in the United States since 1938. Bio-identical Hormones are all natural plant based products made from yams and a small amount of soy. These hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones produced within our own bodies. There are numerous studies worldwide that document the benefits and safety of BHRT. These studies also report a lower incidence of side effects when compared with prescription drugs. BHRT should not be confused with “synthetic hormones which are typically found in many creams, gels and injectables used for hormone replacement.

BHRT is a short, simple in-office procedure using local anesthesia. Your doctor will insert the pellets into the fatty layer just beneath your skin. In men and women, a small incision is made in the buttocks or in the lower abdomen. The process is painless and takes just a few minutes.

One of greatest advantages of pellet therapy is the low incidence of side effects. Although extremely rare, side effects may include: slight bruising, minor bleeding, infection or extrusion of the pellets.

Your doctor will interpret your blood tests and determine an appropriate dosage specifically designed for your body. Women who receive estrogen can feel significantly better in 24-36 hours. Men and women who receive testosterone will start to feel relief of symptoms in 10-14 days. After your pellet insertion, you should avoid vigorous exercise for a few days as directed by your physician. Your doctor will evaluate your hormone levels on an ongoing basis and monitor any future changes needed.

You can obtain BHRT Pellets by scheduling an appointment with a trained, certified physician who specializes in hormonal therapy. In order to obtain the correct dosage and proper placement of the pellets, the doctor should be knowledgeable and specifically trained in pellet therapy!
