Question: Hi there, My boyfriend will shortly turn 29, and is concerned about his hair thinning around the crown of his head (it is indeed thinning, and has been doing so for several years).
I would like to purchase a hair treatment for his for his birthday – could you recommend which treatment I should purchase?
Answer: Hi, Mhairhi. If you would like to gift your boyfriend a course of hair loss treatment for his birthday, Christmas or any other occasion this is absolutely possible! There are just a few easy steps you and he will need to follow.
Firstly, he will need to have a free consultation with one of our hair loss specialists to determine his level and pattern of thinning, as well as his suitability for treatment. This can take place either at one of our Central London hair loss clinics – and you are very welcome to accompany him if he’s happy with that too! – or if you are based outside London or the UK then you can have him complete an Online Consultation.
Following this consultation and assuming he is given the go-ahead, he will be allocated a dedicated Treatment Advisor. They will explain all the most effective treatment options and hair growth boosters available, based on a tailored selection of recommended products personalised to your boyfriend’s specific needs. To treat a thinning crown, this is likely to comprise finasteride 1mg and minoxidil.
Once he has decided which treatments he feels best suited to and will be most comfortable using, we can arrange for you to pay for this. If you come along to the clinic with him this can all be done in the first visit and he should be able to take the treatments away with him that day. If you do this following an online consultation then arrangements will be made over the phone or via email and treatments will be posted out. Should you arrange treatment this way, as part of our patient privacy and security measures, your boyfriend will need to provide written confirmation that he is happy for us to deal with you regarding payment.
If you would prefer your boyfriend not know how much his course of male hair loss treatment costs, we can request that the treatment advisor only discusses costs with you once your boyfriend has made his selection and been taken through everything he needs to know about each of these treatment products.
Due to hair loss treatments being prescription medications, we cannot arrange these as a surprise gift without your boyfriend being involved in the process. There are a number of steps, such as taking a medical profile, that we would require the person who would be using the treatments to complete themselves, however you are able to book an appointment for him as a surprise – just please be sure to mention this at the time of making your reservation so that any appointment reminders are not sent to your boyfriend.
