New research has indicated that whilst 45% of women around the world are concerned by thinning hair, only a quarter of them do anything about it. At The Belgravia Centre, we are committed to raising awareness of the options available to women who wish to remedy their thinning hair, and see many women who are unaware of the fact that there is a clinically proven way to treat their hair loss in the majority of cases.
Minoxidil is the only medically proven treatment available to women. Approved or licensed by the medical regulatory bodies in the UK and US (The MHRA and The FDA) minoxidil has proven itself time and time again, both through clinical trials and in practice at our clinics (you can see the female results in our before and during treatment photographs). Minoxidil is the only proven hair loss treatment for women, and has been used successfully to treat female pattern hair loss, alopecia areata, traction alopecia and other less common conditions.
A hair loss specialist can quickly diagnose your condition, so if you’re unsure as to what is causing your hair loss, you can take advantage of our expertise that comes from treating many thousands of patients at our London clinics and abroad. Now, let’s take a look at how a Belgravia Centre hair loss treatment programme is carried out in practice.
All our treatments can be administered quickly and easily in the comfort of your own home, meaning that they can be integrated within the busiest of daily routines. Minoxidil itself is applied in the morning as an invisible liquid directly onto the scalp using a syringe, which takes mere seconds. And then, in the evening, the same is done again; if your hair loss is proving stubborn to treat, you can potentially be prescribed our unique high strength minoxidil cream + azelaic acid, which has shown excellent results.
Minoxidil is dose dependent, so a hair loss specialist is required to establish your ideal daily dose. The Belgravia Pharmacy can also include additional ingredients in your bespoke minoxidil formulation, which appear to mimic the effects of Propecia, the only other clinically proven hair loss medication that is just available to men. Propecia’s function is to block DHT, the androgen that causes hair loss atop the scalp in those with a genetic predisposition, and our Pharmaceutical Laboratory has established that not just azelaic acid, but caffeine and Medroxyprogesterone also appear to block DHT when applied locally to the scalp.
So, once your ideal minoxidil formulation has been created, there are a number of treatment boosters that can be included in your daily or weekly hair care routine. From the daily nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics that is specially designed to keep your hair in the healthiest condition possible, to the LaserComb, which has been proven to speed up hair regrowth when used three times a week. Many women remain in the dark about the hair loss treatment options available to them, and we aim to provide not just an online resource to help with this, but are happy to answer any questions you may have, just call 0800 077 666.
