Male Pattern Baldness

Losing your hair can be discouraging, but there are many treatments at Goodman Dermatology that can help you slow and even reverse hair loss. We offer these services to the residents of Roswell, Marietta / East Cobb, Woodstock and Dawsonville, GA.

What is Male Pattern Baldness?

Male pattern baldness, also called alopecia, is a condition characterized by permanent hair loss on the scalp. This condition can also affect women, which is then called female pattern baldness. Either male or female pattern baldness symptoms can be frustrating, as it is difficult to conceal and stop a loss of hair. For men, symptoms often include a receding hair line and a loss of hair on the crown of the head. For women, symptoms often include a thinning of the hair through its part.

What Causes Male Pattern Baldness?

There are no clear links to male pattern baldness causes with the exception of genetics. Unfortunately, this also means there is no male pattern baldness cure. However, there are many treatment options that can help slow hair loss and even temporarily increase hair growth. Depending on the male pattern baldness stages you are experiencing, Goodman Dermatology can help find the best male or female pattern baldness treatments for you.

How Much Does Male Pattern Baldness Treatment Cost?

The cost of male pattern baldness treatment will vary depending on the techniques used. At Goodman Dermatology, we understand that each patient is entirely unique. With different skin types, cosmetic features and treatment needs, each patient deserves a personalized treatment that is designed with them in mind. For these reasons, we are not able to provide an exact cost for treatment until we have the opportunity to assess your treatment goals and develop a personalized treatment plan.

During your consultation, we will discuss your needs and treatment goals in order to determine this treatment plan and inform you of your male pattern baldness treatment cost. To make our treatments more affordable for our patients, we are proud to offer financing options through CareCredit®.

How is Male Pattern Baldness Treated?

At Goodman Dermatology, we typically recommend one of two treatments for treating male pattern baldness.

The first is hair transplant surgery, which takes hair from the back of the scalp and transplants it into the top of the scalp to restore natural hair growth and provide thicker hair.

The second is PRP for hair loss, which uses the growth factors found in your own blood to stimulate natural hair growth in the scalp.

Are There Any Side Effects from Male Pattern Baldness Treatment?

The side effects from your male pattern baldness treatment will vary depending on the treatment method used. However, most side effects are temporary and mild in nature.

Is There Any Downtime Required After Male Pattern Baldness Treatment?

For male pattern baldness treatments involving PRP injections, there is no downtime or recovery period necessary. Hair transplants, however, may involve some downtime depending on the extent of treatment performed. We will also provide you with post-care instructions to ensure optimal results.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Male Pattern Baldness Treatment?

The results you achieve from male pattern baldness treatment will vary depending on the treatment method used. In any case, our goal is to restore natural hair growth to slow the effects of male pattern baldness and help you achieve a fuller head of hair. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment options to determine the treatment plan that will deliver the best results. At this time, we will let you know what kind of results you can expect.
