Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss. There are several types of alopecia, such as Alopecia and androgenetic alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia is the type of hair loss that Procerin is designed specifically to combat. While alopecia refers to any type of hair loss, androgenetic alopecia is a genetic predisposition to male balding. The combination of a genetic propensity, age, and the presence of male hormones in the scalp contribute to androgenetic alopecia, or. male pattern baldness. Procerin's active ingredients target DHT, a byproduct of the male hormone testosterone. 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 is designed only to combat male hair loss caused by androgenetic alopecia, the most common cause of male baldness and thinning hair in men.
