When you think of hair loss prevention you may think of medications, sticky foams, or expensive shampoos. National Hair Loss provides customized Hair Recovery Programs, which have been featured in Hollywood Reporter and widely publicized by celebrities including iHeart Radio DJ Johnjay Van Es, to offer men a chance to take control of their hair loss with new cutting-edge treatments and top medical expertise.
Male hair loss is usually attributable to genetics (Androgenetic Alopecia) and more specifically, to the conversion of the male hormone testosterone to Dihydrotestosterone – DHT. At the first signs of hair loss, an estimated 50% of hair has already miniaturized. DHT decreases blood flow to the hair follicle causing hair density to progressively miniaturize, and hair becomes thinner and thinner. Our Hair Recovery Programs are at the forefront for hair loss prevention and hair restoration therapies.
How does DHT contribute to male pattern hair loss? The testosterone hormone is converted into DHT in the testes by the enzyme, 5a-reducatase. Once converted, DHT binds to androgens.
- Decrease blood flow causing follicle to progressively miniaturize
- Decrease in hair protein, nutrients, H20 and oxygen
- Cell division is disrupted and follicle becomes inactive
