It’s a shock when you find out your teenage son has been losing hair. It doesn’t matter if they’re young men or older, all kids go through this phase and need support from their parents to get back on track with what is going in an adult world!
The best way to deal with the problem at hand? Talking about it openly so there aren’t any surprises later down the line because unfortunately not every parent knows how fast things can happen during puberty.
The young man’s father, mother, and older brothers may not be surprised to see that he has inherited the “baldness trait” from them. He will certainly take it harder than they do though because of how early in life this began happening for him!
When a man loses his hair before the age of 21, it can be extremely hard on him. Young men face ridicule and discrimination from society as well as difficulty finding jobs due to their appearance – which might lead them down an even darker path than just dealing with baldness!
Don’t forget these other ways your hair changes as you age.
A person’s self-esteem is deeply related to how they see themselves in relation to not only to their peers but also to what others say or think about you. With so many scams being advertised on TV, the Internet, and in print media, it’s hard for people who are looking to be healed.
I’m under 21 and losing my hair. What should I do?
If a person is going through hair loss, they should not be “sold” into any decisions regarding surgery and if possible educated about the procedure. The first thing a physician hair restoration specialist might tell you if you’re losing more than usual is not to panic, because it’s normal for guys with male pattern baldness (and no one wants an awkward conversation about their situation) but we can almost certainly find ways around this problem by making decisions tailored just right.
When the patient is a minor, it’s important to involve their parent in decision-making. A legal guardian usually provides an additional level of protection for them and allows them access that they may not have with just one person present at all times under supervision by professionals who understand these issues well enough so there are no surprises later on down the road when you’re least expecting it!
With so many causes of hair loss, it is important to rule out all possible reasons before recommending treatment. Many physicians will make their best recommendation in conjunction with a team effort and an evaluation from an expert on the subject at hand – for instance HRT might be recommended when hormone levels are found low (elevated follicle-stimulating hormone).
What is usually recommended for someone undergoing hair loss under 21?
A physician hair restoration specialist is likely to recommend a variety of treatments, depending on the patient’s goals. Why would a young man consider hair transplantation his first option for treatment when most leading physicians’ opinion is that it should not even be an option? Fortunately, society has accepted this procedure as successful in restoring one’s natural hair color and Texture. However, there are some cases where doctors will advise against these surgeries due to certain factors like mental health or cosmetic reasons which make them less favorable.
One of the reasons why hair transplantation may not be a good choice for young men is because it’s more likely that they will experience complications.
In fact, among other potential problems: an adverse reaction to anesthesia and infection-prone grafts due to poor scalp tissue quality as well as scarring from follicle removal all make this procedure less appealing in younger patients who have had many transplants already – especially those under 40 years old with multiple donor sites on their heads!
Many adults have had it done too early and now need to take the surgical risk themselves, which is not easy for anyone—especially kids who are still developing emotionally as well as physically.
It’s important that you find out what your options are before going through any major life changes like this one! It is difficult to design a surgical procedure that will look natural and appropriate for the rest of his life.
Alternative hair restoration treatments
Hair transplantation may eventually be the best approach to the treatment of patients with hair loss. An alternative option often recommended by leading physician specialists in this field is non-surgical treatments that include hair growth supplements or minoxidil (Rogaine®) and finasteride(Propecia ®). These medications are currently available only through prescription, but it’s hoped they will one day become over-the-counter alternatives.
