Receding Hairline Treatment for TeenagersName: Ron

Question: Hey, Thanks for this information. Before reading this post, I was in doubt that hair loss problem in teenager can’t be treated until they turn at least 18 years old, But now the confusion is clear. Now I can get hair loss treatment as I’m 17. Thanks again!

Answer: Hi, Ron. No problem at all, we’re pleased you find our hair loss blog helpful.

It is possible to receive minoxidil-only treatment from 16 years of age – it is only finasteride 1mg that is for men aged 18 and over – so you are within the appropriate age range.

You would, however, need to be assessed by one of Belgravia’s hair loss specialist nurses first to determine your suitability before we could recommend the best high strength minoxidil formulation to treat your receding hairline.

This treatment has provided many Belgravia clients with notable regrowth results and can be combined with various hair growth boosters for an holistic approach that seeks to improve both your hair loss condition and the general condition of your hair – something that would be discussed with you and fully explained during consultation.
