‘Does Minoxidil Work for Frontal Hair Loss?’

Minoxidil for Hair LossName: Neeraj

Question: Does Minoxidil works in frontal hair..?

Answer: Hi, Neeraj. There are various forms of frontal hair loss.

In the great majority of instances and particularly in cases of androgenic alopecia (male and female pattern hair loss) minoxidil can be highly effective in treating this type of genetic shedding. It is the only MHRA and FDA approved pattern hair loss treatment for both men and women, however it is also widely known to be useful in treating other conditions such as Traction Alopecia which can also give the appearance of a receding hairline.

In our many years of experience here at Belgravia, we have found using high strength minoxidil products from the range offered at our clinics is actually particularly effective in stubborn areas such as around the temples and hairline. You can see examples of the kinds of regrowth results clients using these treatments have achieved in our Receding Hairline Treatment Success Stories.

The cases of frontal hair loss where minoxidil will not work are when there is true baldness as at this stage the hair follicle has died and can no longer be stimulated by treatment. Baldness can be easily identified as the skin takes on a smooth, shiny appearance. This is usually caused either by extremely advanced male hair loss, or for women, whilst more rare, it is possible and is generally due to Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia – a type of scarring which falls under the condition Cicatricial Alopecia. In these situations hair restoration surgery may be an option but is very much decided on a case-by-case basis and is left to the discretion of the surgeon performing the operation.
