‘Can You Reverse Frontal Baldness?’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Jay

Question: Hello, they say that frontal baldness is irreversible, is this true?

Answer: Hi, Jay. This depends entirely on the type of ‘frontal baldness’ you are referring to.

It is generally possible to regrow hair lost to frontal baldness when the term refers to a receding hairline caused by Male Pattern Hair Loss.

The hairline can be a stubborn area to treat but personalised hair loss treatment courses which feature topical applications of high strength minoxidil have frequently produced significant regrowth results in Belgravia clients.

When ‘frontal baldness’ refers to a receding hairline in women – or very occasionally in men – due to a form of scarring alopecia known as Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia, that is currently irreversible.

Example of Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia

In this instance sometimes a hair transplant can sometimes be a viable option worth considering, though researchers are currently investigating potential treatments for this type of hair loss.

In the rare instances when Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (FFA) does appear in men, it looks very different to the type of receding hairline associated with genetic hair loss.

FFA presents as a band – up to eight centimetres deep – all the way around the hairline, leaving shiny skin behind where the hair follicles have scarred over and caused true baldness.

A receding hairline, however, causes thinning hair that often tends to follow an ‘M’ shape, known as widow’s peak.

If you are concerned about your hairline and would like a professional opinion on what is happening and what your options are for dealing with it, contact a hair loss specialist.

You can do this either in person by booking a free consultation at one of our Central London hair loss clinics, or by completing an Online Consultation if you are based outside London or abroad.
