‘I Have Excessively Thinning Hair on Top of My Head’

Name: Sudeep

Question: There is an excessive hair loss on the top back of my head..i am 20 years old i can easily recognise the thinning of hair on the top back of my head..please suggest me

Answer: Hi, Sudeep. This sounds extremely likely to be male pattern hair loss. This hereditary condition can cause excessive hair loss and thinning anywhere around the top of the scalp at any time following puberty.

The thinning crown and vertex thinning (thinning hair on top) that you mention are classic signs of this genetic condition and are the result of a predisposed sensitivity to a substance in the body called DHT. In cases of male pattern baldness this enzyme latches on to the hair follicles around the top of the scalp and gradually overpowers them, causing the hair to become increasingly thin and weak before falling out.

By using a combination of the once-per-day tablet, finasteride 1mg, used to block the formation of DHT, and a specially-chosen high strength minoxidil preparation from the range available at Belgravia’s in-clinic pharmacies, our specialists have produced many, many regrowth success stories for this pattern of hairloss.

So, if you are looking to prevent further thinning and to regrow your hair, a personalised male hair loss treatment course featuring clinically-proven components and a range of hair growth boosters tailored to your precise needs is a solid option worth considering.
