Testosterone Causes Hair Loss
On average, men with male pattern baldness have the same testosterone levels as those men with a full head of hair. For the most part, baldness is determined by your genetics. Hair follicles in the skin will convert testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The body only needs DHT in small doses though, so too much DHT can lead to hair loss and acne. That is one of many reasons our clinic recommends
injectable testosterone for most patients vs. topical testosterone. The transdermal process required for the topical testosterone to permeate the skin can cause higher production of DHT compared to the injectable testosterone. The additional DHT can therefore lead to unnecessary side effects.
Hair Loss Treatment (PRP)
If you suspect you are genetically predisposed to male pattern hair loss or are experiencing hair loss as a side effect, please notify one of our specialists. There are proven ways to prevent hair loss. Our clinic offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment for our patients who are genetically predisposed to hair loss. This cutting edge treatment is minimally invasive and has little to no recovery time.
You could literally come on your lunch break. Research has shown Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to be safe, non-allergenic and most importantly effective for hair growth treatment.
