What is DHT, and How Does it Cause Balding?

Many men are familiar with male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia, is the result of a hormone called DHT in hair. Metairie LA hair loss consultant, Pete Zito, is familiar with DHT causing balding for many male individuals at Hair Loss Control Clinic.

DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) is a form of testosterone that causes hair follicles to shrink and produce less hair or abnormal production. It can also affect the lifespan of a hair follicle, which can result in hair thinning and balding.

All hair has different growth phases. This is why patients who undergo laser hair removal need to have several appointments made with a dermatologist to achieve permanent results. This is because, during one appointment, only the hair in the growth phase can be addressed. By making several appointments over time, all the hair will eventually be treated, thus resulting in permanent removal. When DHT affects the hair follicle, it can affect a follicle's growth phase. It may result in a shorter growth phase, or even longer rest stages, which over time causes thinning and baldness.

To address balding that results from DHT production, it is important that DHT production be blocked. This can be done with a variety of dietary supplements. Hair Loss Control Clinic offers dietary supplements that can control DHT production and reduce the effects that it has on hair follicles.

In addition to addressing the production of DHT, Hair Loss Control Clinic has a number of other alternatives available. From shampoos to laser light therapy, there are many ways to address hair thinning and balding for individuals of all ages and genders. Men are not the only ones that experience hair loss!

Pete Zito and the staff at Hair Loss Control Clinic understand the embarrassment and the self-confidence that is lost when an individual starts to experience hair loss and thinning. Mr. Zito has committed himself to helping others find affordable alternatives to hair transplant surgery to assist them in bringing back their original head of hair!
