What is androgenic alopecia?
Androgenic alopecia affects up to 50% of males over the age of 50.
This type of alopecia is genetic and is caused by an excessive response to androgens which leads to progressive hair loss.
Androgenic alopecia is also known as male pattern baldness and can significantly impact your confidence and quality of life. Fortunately, there are treatment options available for androgenetic alopecia.
If you suffer from male pattern baldness, you can get androgenic alopecia treatment in Mumbai at the Malay Mehta Aesthetic Clinic.

Call us at +91-7045291747 or book a consultation online with our hair experts to get started on your androgenetic alopecia treatment.
In men, this type of alopecia is also referred to as male pattern baldness but this condition also affects women.
50% of men over 50 suffer from male pattern baldness which commonly manifests with thinning of the hair that begins at the temples and gradually leads to hair loss. The hairline recedes gradually to form the M shape characteristic of male pattern baldness. This condition progresses gradually over time and may eventually lead to complete baldness.
In women, this type of alopecia manifests with thinning of hair all over the head but it rarely leads to complete baldness.

Androgenetic alopecia is a form of hair loss that is caused by an excessive response to an androgen hormone called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT attacks and damages hair follicles. This causes thinning of hair and gradually inhibits hair growth leading to baldness.
Androgenic alopecia hair loss in males
Since DHT is found in testosterone, men are naturally more susceptible to this type of alopecia.. Male pattern baldness is a genetic predisposition so it is more likely to occur in men where there is a family history of the males going bald.
When male pattern baldness occurs in men, it can start even before the age of 30 but it is more prevalent in men older than fifty. This condition starts with hair loss at the temples, then at the crown to form an M shape and may eventually lead to complete baldness.
loss of hair in females
Pattern hair loss can also occur in women but it is more prevalent in post-menopausal women. Unlike in men, this condition in women causes thinning of hair but it rarely causes complete loss of the hair.
Hair loss can impact your self-esteem and interfere with your quality of life. Fortunately for people who suffer from premature hair loss in Mumbai, we offer a wide range of alopecia treatment options at Malay Mehta Aesthetic Clinic including:
QR678 is a treatment in androgenic alopecia that was developed in India and has shown great efficacy in pattern hair loss treatment. This therapy helps to increase the density and thickness of follicles which stimulates hair growth in patients suffering from alopecia.
QR678 contains polypeptides that are naturally present in the scalp but decrease with hair fall. By replenishing these polypeptides, QR678 treatment helps to stimulate hair growth naturally.
Stem cell treatment
Stem cells are cells that can make new cells that the body may not be able to produce on its own. In androgenic alopecia, hair follicles get damaged and are not replaced which results in thinning of the hair and baldness. Stem cell treatment in alopecia can help reverse this by stimulation of the hair follicles and reproducing damaged cells in the scalp which helps to restore a healthy head of hair.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment
Platelet-rich plasma(PRP) injections are an effective androgenetic alopecia treatment. PRP treatment is a safe non-surgical procedure that utilizes the growth factors present in platelets to stimulate hair growth. PRP injections help to improve hair counts, the thickness and the strength of hair roots.
Hair transplant surgery is one of the most effective treatments of male pattern baldness and female pattern alopecia. This treatment involves the transfer of micro grafts of hair follicles from a donor part of the head to the part of the scalp that is.
Once hair follicles are transplanted into areas of the scalp with thinning of the hair or balding, they will start to regrow after 3 to 4 months. Most patients see significant improvement in hair growth and restoration by the sixth month.
At the Malay Mehta Aesthetic Clinic, we use the best techniques in FUE hair transplant technology to deliver the best results. You can book a consultation to find out if you are a suitable candidate for a hair transplant.
