Located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, New Image Hair Clinic offers professional specialists with a wide range of experience in proven, reliable hair loss treatments for men and women. Our initial consultations start with a free comprehensive scalp analysis, in which we define hair loss patterns and search out the primary cause of hair thinning or balding. Hair loss may stem from many contributing factors, including medical issues, nutritional deficiencies, and stress. Learning about lifestyle and medical factors gives insight into possible reasons for hair loss, but does not present conclusive evidence.

Patients at New Image Hair Clinic often have questions about the role of testosterone in baldness. While testosterone itself does not lead to baldness in men, a powerful androgen created from testosterone can produce hair loss in the presence of the right genetic factors. Called dihydrotestosterone (DHT), this androgen is formed in the prostate and adrenal glands, as well as in the testes and hair follicles. An androgen is a hormone that leads to male characteristics in the body, and DHT plays a key role in the development of boys. It is responsible for the growth of hair on the face and body, for the maturation of the voice, and for a number of other sex-related characteristics.
At New Image Hair Clinic in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, we offer hair restoration treatments for issues such as female hair loss, thinning hair, and male pattern baldness. As the most common type of hair loss among men, male pattern baldness generally follows a predictable arc beginning with receding hairline and progressing to thinning on the crown. In understanding male pattern baldness, it is important to understand hair growth patterns. Despite the fact that hair appears to follow a constant pattern in volume and growth, each strand of hair has a distinct lifetime.
