There are many potential causes of hair loss in men, including disease, nutritional deficiency, hormone imbalances, and stress. Male hair loss is not always attributable to just one cause, but often results from a combination of several of these factors. Hair loss treatment that are aimed at one particular factor may be less effective in the presence of additional hair loss factors. The most common cause of male hair loss is androgenetic alopecia. The factors involved in androgenetic alopecia are:
- A genetic propensity for balding and thinning hair
- The presence of male hormones (called androgens) in the scalp
Alopecia is simply the medical term for hair loss. Androgenetic refers to a genetic predisposition to balding, one that typically becomes more noticeable and pronounced with age. The influence of androgens such as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) plays a major part in this type of hair loss. Age and genetics cannot be changed, so many hair loss products are aimed at the third factor; addressing the presence of androgens in the scalp. Most successful hair loss treatments, particularly prescription hair loss medications, are typically targeted at reducing the presence of DHT in the scalp, or blocking the formation of DHT that leads to male hair loss. Prescription hair loss treatments are targeted at one phase of DHT, the production of it as a byproduct of the male androgen testosterone. These prescription hair loss treatments can also interfere with testosterone however, in addition to treating hair loss.
Procerin uses only all-natural DHT blockers to block the transformation of testosterone into DHT. No sexual side effects are present, because these DHT blockers do not interfere with testosterone, like most prescription hair loss treatments do. Procerin also includes herbal and mineral ingredients that aid the body in reducing the levels of harmful DHT in the scalp. Procerin provides proven DHT blockers, as well as vitamins and minerals critical to maintaining existing hair in one easy to use hair loss treatment.
