Male Pattern Baldness

Male Pattern Baldness

Male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia, is when a man starts to lose hair on his scalp. This is mainly due to the natural change of hormone levels as a man ages. This condition is said to affect half of all men by the age of 50 years. It is said to be a psychologically distressing condition for men.

Ask a doctor

The main cause of male pattern baldness is a natural change in hormone levels. Genetic predisposition also plays a huge part on whether or not someone will develop the condition. These factors cause the gradual shrinkage of the hair follicles in the scalp, causing them to become unsuitable for hair to grow from.

There are many other factors that can cause or aggravate hair loss. These include:

  • Illness
  • Stress
  • Taking certain types of medication
  • Poor diet/missing nutrients (e.g. zinc and iron)

Female Pattern Baldness

Female Pattern Baldness

Female pattern baldness is a condition that affects women, otherwise known as androgenic alopecia. In general, this condition tends to affect men moreso than women and it manifests differently.

While men who suffer from androgenic alopecia tend to have bald spots and a receding hairline, women who suffer from this generally suffer from a general hair thinning, causing them to lose volume in the hair.

Artisan Hair Regrowth Treatment

Artisan Hair Regrowth Treatment is done over a period of months, depending on the patient’s condition. Most patients with moderate to severe hair loss will regain a full head of hair within 6 months. It is recommended that treatments be done at an interval of once a month in order for maximum efficacy.
What causes hair loss?
In Singapore, apart from common hair loss factors like stress, pregnancy and a poor diet, hair loss can actually be a result of specific scalp and hair conditions such as:
Androgenetic Alopecia
This is known as male pattern hair loss or female pattern hair loss. However, males and females in Singapore experience hair loss differently. Male pattern hair loss is characterised by the receding of the scalp and hair line in a ‘M’ shape; female pattern hair loss is characterised by the overall thinning of hair on the entire scalp. Female pattern hair loss also does not lead to complete baldness, unlike males.
Traction Alopecia
This form of hair loss is caused by extreme physical stress on the hair follicles and is usually caused by excessive styling of the hair. A reduction of stress on the hair follicles and boost of scalp health is usually the answer for his hair loss condition.
Telogen Effluvium
This is a form of temporary hair loss, where large amounts of hair fall out but will usually grow back. A person with telogen effluvium experiences periods of hair loss for more than six months. Apart from nutritional deficiencies, telogen effluvium is also caused by pressure on the scalp. Telogen effluvium occurs more in female pattern hair loss.
Anagen Effluvium
This form of hair loss is generally caused by chemicals or medical treatments, such as hair loss from shampoo. So be wary of products that preach hair loss, like shampoos for hair loss.
Gradual thinning at the part line
Thinning hair at the top of the head progressing to baldness
Receding hairline forming a characteristic "M" shape

What you should know about Artisan Hair Regrowth Treatment

A topical numbing cream will be applied to areas of your scalp where hair growth is desired.

The doctor will then use the machine to inject a special hair regrowth serum onto the target areas on the scalp. This machine, the La Raccine Automated Dermal Hydrator, allows the doctor to deliver the serum precisely into the hair follicles to treat hair loss.

Depending on the patients specific condition, you may or may not need local anesthesia for this treatment. With anesthesia, this treatment should be painless on the scalp.

Most hair loss treatments in Singapore are suitable for both men and women across all ages, including Artisan’s Hair Regrowth Treatment.
Yes! There are several hair loss treatments in Singapore, including our Artisan Hair Regrowth Treatment which is dedicated to strengthening your scalp and growing healthy, luscious hair.

Losing about 100-150 strands of hair a day is normal, but any increase in that is considered quite worrying. However, pay attention to your hair loss patterns now compared to the past e.g. losing 30 more strands of hair now.

Early detection is key — keep a look out for excessive hair on your pillow, hairbrush and shower drain. These are usually early signs of hair loss. In Singapore, most hair loss is only noticed after 30 percent of hair is lost.

Artisan Hair Laser

Low-Level Laser Therapy by Artisan

Low level laser therapy uses a specific type of laser in order to stimulate hair follicles and induce hair to grow back thicker and fuller. This is also sometimes referred to as “cold therapy” as these lasers do not heat the target tissue like the other lasers that are used for removing pigmentation, which cut and remodel tissue. One of the large benefits of LLLT is that it is non-invasive, not requiring any scalpels or burning.

Am I a good candidate for LLLT?

Hair follicles contain a specific type of molecule called the cytochrome C molecule that absorbs red light. When these molecules absorb red light, they are activated to send signals to the other cells in the hair follicle, effecting changes like reduced inflammation and delayed apoptosis (cell death). This results in development of darker and thicker hair.
LLLT treatment is generally recommended for patients who still have active hair follicles that can be stimulated by the photons. For patients who do not having any living hair follicles, an alternative treatment might be prescribed instead.
Gradual thinning at the part line
Thinning hair at the top of the head progressing to baldness
Receding hairline forming a characteristic "M" shape

What you should know about Artisan Low-Level Laser Therapy

You will need to go for treatments once or twice a week for up to 6 treatments in order to achieve optimum results. Hair will eventually start growing back to be thicker, fuller and more even.

The patient is placed sitting up under a headpiece, which somewhat resembles a salon steamer. The low level lasers within the headpiece will be evenly directed at the patients head.

It is a painless treatment and most patients will only feel a tingling sensation. There is no downtime and you can resume daily activities immediately thereafter.

Who is a good candidate for FUE hair transplant?

Not everyone is a good candidate for a FUE hair transplant. There are a few important factors that determine whether or not a hair transplant is suitable for you. Some of these include:

Health of your scalp

If you have Alopecia or other hair related diseases, you may not be a suitable candidate for a hair transplant. The donor area may lack the necessary healthy follicles in order to complete a successful hair transplant.

Extent of your hair loss

The amount of donor hair you possess will have an impact on the success rate of the procedure. If your hair loss is too extensive, you may not have enough healthy hair follicles to make the procedure successful.

Lifestyle

In general, in order to be a good candidate for a hair transplant you will need to exercise, eat healthy and follow an active lifestyle for the treatment to have the best effect.
