‘I Have Slightly Thinning Hair; Will I See Fast Treatment Results?’

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

Name: Derek

Question: Hello so I am a 20 year old African American male and I am noticing some slight thinning on my temple hairs. I looked at your website and have seen quite a few black men regrow their temple hair. Can I start your treatment right away to get good results. Also since my case is minor, can I see fast results. Thank you

Receding Hairline TreatmentAnswer: Hi, Derek. This sounds like a classic case of male pattern hair loss so there are two treatment options open to you and a range of hair growth boosters you can use too.

As you hair is thinning around your temples, following a consultation with one of our hair loss specialist nurses we would recommend one of the range of high strength minoxidil formulas available from Belgravia’s clinics. These topical preparations have been used to considerable effect by our teams treating men with a receding hairline, and are easy to apply.

You can also combine this treatment with the once-daily oral tablet finasteride 1mg. This is used to inhibit the substance in the body – DHT – which causes the hair to thin in cases of male pattern hair loss – in order to stabilise shedding and offer the hair a better chance of regrowing.

There is a fairly standard timeline in which you can expect to see results from using hair loss treatment as this is linked to the hair growth cycle, however, the general rule is that the earlier on you start, the better.

This can take up to six months for men whose thinning is more advanced – particularly around the hairline as this is the slowest area to regrow – but if yours is still in the early stages then, assuming there are no other influencing health factors at play, there are likely to be visible changes from around the three month mark as long as you use your treatment consistently and as directed. Your personal regrowth chances and an estimated timeline to see these changes can be discussed during your consultation but for more general information you can also read our Guide to Levels of Regrowth from Hair Loss Treatment.
