Androgenic alopecia

Androgenic alopecia, otherwise known as male-pattern baldness, is considered the most prevalent type of hair loss in humans. Androgenic alopecia is the most common cause of alopecia in men, but it also occurs in women. It affects 25% of men between the ages of 25 and 35, 40% of men over 40, and 50% of men over 50 years of age, with the percentage increasing with age. Genetic heredity, hormones and age are all factors involved in this condition. We offer various therapeutic options for the treatment of androgenic alopecia, which are aimed at halting hair loss and even restore hair density. At the Dr. Javier Bassas Dermatology Centre we advise you on the most appropriate treatment, taking into account the pattern and extension of baldness, age, associated illnesses, and your preferences. It should be noted that the sooner the treatment is established, the better the final result will be.
