What is Pattern Baldness, and can it be treated?

Updated: Feb 24

Pattern Baldness is the most common type of hair loss in both Men and Women worldwide.

Male and Female Pattern Baldness

In Men, it's called Male Pattern Baldness, and in Women, it's called Female Pattern Baldness.

The medical term for both the Male and Female Pattern Baldness is Androgenic Alopecia.

Pattern Baldness is an inherited condition that causes the hair follicles in our scalp to shrink and eventually stop growing hair. The shrinking process can start as early as our teens, but usually, it will start later in life.

What are the signs?

The first sign of Male Pattern Baldness tends to be a receding hairline or bald spot at the top of the head. In women, the first sign of Female Pattern Baldness tends to be overall thinning (also known as diffuse thinning) and a widening of the parting.

Can it be treated?

Male Pattern Baldness can be treated with medication such as Finasteride and Minoxidil.

Minoxidil can also be used to treat FPB, but women should not use Finasteride.

Things to Consider Before Taking Finasteride and Minoxidil :

- These medications do not work for everyone.

- They only work for as long as they are used, meaning many people are on them for life.

- They are not available on the NHS.

- They can be expensive.

Scalp Micropigmentation for Pattern Baldness

Scalp Micropigmentation (also known as SMP) is a form of cosmetic tattooing offering a guaranteed hair loss solution for both Men and Women. Results are instant, long-lasting, and low maintenance. There is no downtime as the treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical. Thanks to advanced innovations within the SMP Industry, results are 100% safe, natural, and undetectable when administered by a trained technician.

How Does SMP Work?

Micro-precision needles are used to implant pigment into the upper dermal layer of the scalp, creating the illusion of new hair growth by replicating individual hair follicles. Each impression of pigment will follow your natural hair-growth pattern for the most natural-looking results. Once complete, SMP creates the look of a short buzz cut for those who are receding or bald, or the appearance of full hair density and a full parting for those who are thinning.
