Male Pattern Hair Loss

Male Pattern Hair Loss, Androgenetic Alopecia and Clinical Symptoms


Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) usually starts at the age of 20-40 in men after puberty. AGA begins with the retraction of the forehead line from both temples in males. Then it continues with thinning in the crown area of the head. Most individuals with this hair loss type describe a reduction in hair without increased hair loss. In some individuals with AGA, complete baldness occurs within 5 years, while in some men the process is completed within 15-25 years. In a study, average hair loss was reported as 5% per year.
