Question: I live in the U.S. and at 24 have moderately thinned hair and am starting to have receding hairline. I’ve used rogaine before but then stopped out of lack of motivation and have noticed more hair loss since stopping (which I now understand why). Would like to know what some of my options are for getting my hair line back to what it was and regaining thickness. Suggestions? (Also, I’m hesitant about phone calls overseas as they can get pricey).
Finasteride is taken as a daily 1mg oral tablet which inhibits the formation of DHT – the hormone derivative which attacks the hair follicles around the top of the head in those with a predisposition to genetic hair loss, gradually weakening them. This makes the hair thin over time and can eventually lead to baldness, where the follicles die and skin takes on a shiny appearance.
High strength minoxidil is a solution which is applied directly to the affected areas in order to promote regrowth. It can be particularly effective in regrowing receding hairlines and is applied either once or twice per day, as directed by your dedicated hair loss specialist. It only takes a minute or two and, if this routine is followed diligently, can often yield positive regrowth results.
Don’t worry about pricey international phone calls; you can complete an Online Consultation here on our website. After that one of Belgravia’s experts will contact you to discuss your diagnosis, and their personalised treatment recommendations for your specific level and pattern of shedding. This can be done via email if you prefer and they will also be on hand to answer any questions you have from then on, and to offer support throughout your treatment.
Once you decide on your treatment plan components, which can also include hair growth boosters (your choice of a HairMax LaserComb or a year’s supply of Hair Vitalics dietary supplements can often be included free of charge with annual programme purchases), this can be posted out to you at your chosen address in the States.
