Question: My nephew, aged 19, has a receding hairline which started about 6 months ago. He is extremely concerned about it, and I fear that he is worrying excessively.
a) is there anything to be done? b) should he see his GP?
Answer: Hi, Susan. With a receding hairline it is often difficult to grow hair back if the areas of hair loss have become bald (smooth). If there is still thin, fluffy hair then it is very likely that treatment can grow the hair back. It is however possible to prevent further recession.
The treatment that we find works best for a receding hairline is high strength minoxidil, which is available from Belgravia’s pharmacies. The formula can be applied daily to the affected areas and can help to prevent further hair loss and grow back hair that has been lost.
We advise ‘combination’ treatment programmes, inclusive of finasteride 1mg and various hair growth boosters, which will help so stabilise hair loss and regrow hair all over the scalp. More information can be found on our page about receding hairline treatment.
