Hair loss can be one of the most devastating experiences for people, regardless of age. Some people start losing their hair as teenagers, despite typical onset at age 21.
The youngest known case of male pattern baldness involved a 15-year-old boy. Though otherwise healthy, the boy noticed hair loss at his hairline. He quickly developed bald patches and retained only a neck crown of hair. The teen went completely bald before reaching 21.
Hair loss at this age can have a host of consequences. Society values hair so hair loss can lead to feelings of isolation and shame. This can hurt our self-esteem and make us doubt our attractiveness.
There is no cure for male pattern baldness, but some solutions are popular in the hair loss community. Many people suggest visiting a hair restoration specialist for treatments like transplants. Specialists may prescribe Rogaine or Mixodil to combat hair loss. These solutions often require significant expense, invasiveness, and upkeep.
The only permanent solution to male pattern baldness is a process called scalp micropigmentation. Unlike other medications, serums, and creams, scalp micropigmentation only requires two to three sessions to permanently give you the look of real 3D hair follicles and a full head of hair.
