It’s extremely common for men to begin seeing signs of hair loss as they age. For some, the level of hair loss is much more significant than others, whist some will see little, if any at all. Whilst there are a number of factors that can cause hair loss, research has found that male pattern baldness, otherwise known as androgenetic alopecia, is the biggest cause of male hair loss.
Male pattern baldness can affect people in different ways. While some see little cause for concern, others are sent into emotional turmoil, worrying about the effect it will have on their lives. Different feelings concerning hair loss is completely normal and if you have your worries about male pattern baldness, you can rest assured that there are ways to rectify it.
Read on to discover more about male pattern baldness and micropigmentation, the latest treatment offered by the professionals at Crown Clinic, and how it can help to improve the effect of hair loss.
What causes male pattern baldness?
Male pattern baldness is brought on naturally with age, rather than as a result of health conditions or lifestyle choices, for example. It’s completely down to genetics and hormones, which determines when a man will begin to see signs of their hair thinning.
As the years go by, the testosterone produced by the body begins to be converted into another hormone, dihydrotestosterone. For those who are more prone to male pattern baldness, this hormone can unfortunately quicken the process, by causing hair follicles to shrink, which then makes hair thinner and shorter. Over time, the follicles will shrink so much, that they can no longer produce hair.
What is micropigmentation and how can it help?
If you have experienced significant hair loss, you might have already discovered that hair transplant procedures such as the FUE or FUT hair transplants, aren’t suitable for you. These procedures require at least a partial amount of scalp that still has quite a significant amount of hair growth, in order to achieve any beneficial results. Our brand new micropigmentation procedure offers an alternative to these hair transplant procedures.
Micropigmentation is especially beneficial to men who have suffered from extreme cases of male pattern baldness, to the extent where there is little to no hair left. Rather than using natural hair from your own scalp, the process is much like getting a tattoo on your skin. Using a small needle, small dots of pigment are placed just underneath your skin, to create the look of a full but freshly shaved head of hair.
Crown Clinic professionals are experts in the micropigmentation procedure, so you can rest assured that you will leave with a natural look. What’s more, any natural hair that you have will help to create an even fuller look to the micropigmentation. The procedure is very non-invasive and there’s only a small level of aftercare required from you to maintain the look.

They will happily discuss your options based on the extent of your hair loss, to help you come to a decision on whether micropigmentation is right for you.
