What is Androgenic Alopecia (AA)? Is this a common condition?

Androgenic Alopecia is the most common condition associated with the need for hair loss treatments and is one that is quite prevalent in all men. Androgenic Alopecia is what causes the production of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which in turn results in hair loss according to male pattern baldness.


Most men experience what is commonly referred to as male pattern baldness. This pattern is related to the areas of the scalp that are most sensitive to the testosterone-producing hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which attacks hair follicles and causes them to fall out in a progressive fashion. Certain areas of the scalp are highly sensitive to DHT, while others are less so. As the production of DHT increases with age, the sensitive areas of the scalp begin to experience hair loss consistent with male pattern baldness. Treatment for hair loss effectively addresses male pattern baldness, and there are many different hair loss treatments available for patients to utilize in order to address this common condition.


The manner in which each individual experiences hair loss is different and dependent upon a number of factors, with some individuals experiencing significant hair loss in their 20s. While each candidate is different, it is certainly best to consult a doctor at MAXiM hair transplant clinic as soon as hair loss begins to become noticeable. This will ensure you are aware of the many hair loss treatments that are available and can aid in determining a long-term plan for hair loss management suitable to your unique needs.

These hair loss treatments may include surgical hair restoration, non-surgical hair loss solutions, or some combination of both. A consultation with a MAXiM hair transplant specialist is necessary to analyze the many hair loss treatments available and to determine the most ideal course of action with regard to both short- and long-term care.


There are many causes of hair loss, but the most common relates to Androgenic Alopecia (AA). This is a very common condition among those seeking treatment for hair loss, as it results in hair loss due to the presence of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a testosterone-producing hormone that attacks hair follicles and causes them to fall out over time. Different parts of the scalp are more sensitive to DHT than others, which is part of what makes a successful hair transplant possible.

Who is a good candidate for hair transplantation?

There are a number of considerations that will factor into determining whether you are a good candidate for hair transplantation. There are certain conditions, for example, that may prevent your candidacy for surgical hair restoration, but it is typically the case that those who are dealing with male or female pattern baldness are eligible for a hair transplant. In order to determine eligibility for this treatment option it is best to schedule an appointment with the nearest MAXiM hair transplant center to have one of our hair transplant doctors discuss which options are best based on your individual and unique needs.


When hair transplantation is done by a skilled hair transplant doctor the result will always look completely natural. The hair used in this process is all your own, so there should be no worry about the transplanted hair looking different from your naturally growing hair. Furthermore, the surgical hair restoration process involves a consultation that includes a thorough analysis of your current hair growth to determine the best course of action based on your unique hair restoration needs.

It is quite normal to be concerned over the outcome of this process. Our hair transplant clinic offers patient consultations in part to allay any patient concerns and to demonstrate the efficacy of the treatment options we offer. You may rest assured that our hair transplant doctors are among the most experienced and skilled surgeons in the field of hair restoration, and that these trained professionals will work diligently to ensure that you are thrilled with an outcome that gives you a natural look that no one will be able to notice.

What is Micro Point? Who is eligible for this procedure?

Micro Point is another of our non-surgical hair loss solutions and it can be used individually or in conjunction with a hair transplant procedure. This non-invasive procedure adds density and volume to transplanted hair or to fine or thinning hair without the need for an additional procedure. The hair used in the Micro Point process utilizes synthetic hair that functions in the same way as natural hair, as the synthetic hair has style memory and includes moisture content, meaning it is not easily identifiable as an extension and is able to add significant volume and density.

What is Laser Hair Therapy and how does it work in the hair restoration process?

Laser Hair Therapy is a non-invasive option that requires a patient to attend multiple weekly sessions lasting about 20 or 30 minutes. The number of sessions required will vary from patient to patient, but the process itself is beneficial in strengthening and repairing hair, making it particularly ideal for those in the early stages of hair loss. Laser Hair Therapy is also used by patients in advance of and following a hair transplant, as the use of this therapy has proven beneficial in ensuring the best possible outcome for a hair transplant.


Scalp Micropigmentation is a non-invasive option ideal for those who are dealing with a number of different hair loss issues. This may include those who have male pattern baldness or those who are experiencing thinning hair. Additionally, Scalp Micropigmentation can benefit those who wear a hair system, have irregular hair loss or are dealing with the effects of alopecia.

Scalp Micropigmentation, also known as Scalp Micropigmentation, generates immediate results through the use of micro-needles that replicate the appearance of small hair follicles through the use of pigment. The process restores the appearance of hair density without any surgical incision and is considered one of the most cost-effective options among the non-surgical hair loss solutions available.

Are there any other non-surgical hair solutions available?

Yes, there are a number of non-surgical hair loss solutions available at MAXiM Hair Restoration centers. Non-surgical hair loss solutions include Scalp Micropigmentation, and Laser Hair Therapy. We also offer a wide range of products that include shampoos, treatments, medications, supplements, medications and anti-septic washes, all of which are specifically formulated for each individual patient’s unique needs as it relates to hair restoration. In order to determine the most ideal treatment for hair loss, a consultation with a hair transplant doctor at MAXiM Hair Restoration is highly recommended.
