Receding Hairline – Prevent and Regrow a Receding Hairline

Many say that it’s not possible to regrow a receding hairline but since The Belgravia Pharmacy introduced its formulations of high strength minoxidil (liquid or cream), patients have seen unprecedented levels or hair regrowth to their frontal areas of hair loss or baldness. Hugo uses a treatment course based around formulations of the two medically proven medications for hair loss inclusive of various HairReceding Hairline Growth Boosters. The treatments are specially combined to ensure both the stubborn areas and the overall thinning are targeted.

As you can see from the photos, Hugo experienced considerable hair regrowth at his areas of frontal hair loss – in the photo from month 4 the new hair is much shorter than the rest of his hair so the difference is clear to see. There are also many more receding hairline regrowth photos at the bottom of this page.

comment male pattern hair lossHugo’s Comments: “After 3 months of treatment I can’t believe the results.  Thank you so much Edyta and The Belgravia Centre. I’m so happy.”

Hugo’s hair loss is caused by a genetic condition called Male Pattern Baldness. This form of hair loss affects each person differently – some will begin to see signs of thinning at an early age while others will be affected later on in life. Some will become completely bald without treatment and some will experience a much slower progression resulting in less severe thinning. Genetic hair loss also takes different shapes – some men will lose their hair predominantly at the temples (hairline) whereas others experience hair loss from the crown, and for some the hair will diffusely thin all over the top of the scalp.

Receding Hairline GrowthDuncan is another Belgravia treatment course user that has seen vast amounts of regrowth at his temples and crown.  “I always had a nasty feeling that my hair loss would catch up with me after seeing it affect so many members of my family. I decided I didn’t want to go down the same path as them and do nothing. With the medication and building the laser in to my weekly routine, I couldn’t be happier with the results.  Everyone who is still unsure should go for it. The quicker you start, the quicker you can get the constant burden off your mind! Many thanks.” You can see Duncan’s ‘Success Story’ page here.

Duncan and Hugo’s comments can be found in Belgravia’s comments book, which is kept on the clinic reception. There are also hundreds more from happy hair loss treatment course users. They are all displayed in Belgraviacentre.com’s ‘Hair Loss Success Stories’ section (click on the link to view them all, as well as photos). Patients also regularly comment on our Facebook Page.

Although there are hundreds of treatments advertised for the prevention of hair loss there are in fact only two that are medically proven. The Belgravia Centre offers specially combined treatment programmes based around special formulations of these medications as well as added hair growth boosters. Treatment programmes are tailored for each individual to meet their needs and ensure optimum results for that specific case of hair loss. These treatment programmes ensure the highest chances of hair regrowth available. We have provided some more ‘before and during treatment’ photos below for your perusal.

I'm 20 years old with a receding hairline and slightly thinning hair. I was wondering how much it would cost to have the hairline back to its normal self and if hair transplant is nessary or if medicines are better to use?

7th November, 2012 at 12:47 pm

We advise you visit for a free consultation so that we can diagnose your condition and recommend the most effective course of treatment. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hello I'm 16 and I'm not sure if I'm receding but I'm going crazy and really paranoid I should be losing hair at this age I need help getting stressed and keep looking and seeing if it's changing but it's not please help!

6th December, 2012 at 11:11 am


Hi Mark, Thank you for your comment. Rest assured you are not alone in feeling 'paranoid' about your hair loss, so don't worry you are not 'going crazy'. I think the best thing for you would be to come to the centre for a free tricho check appointment, I have emailed you further details. We look forward to hearing from you.

9th December, 2012 at 1:28 am


Like Mark in the comments i'm in the same boat, i'm paranoid about my hair. I'm 18 and already have a very poor hairline, iv grown my hair out very long so i'm able to cover it up, it also feels as though it may be thinning on top. I can already see iv developed my dads hairline. By the time he was 30 he had a big bald patch and a very receded hair line. It looks as though my hair is just going the same way as his. I wouldn't mind if this was happening in my 30's, but it really has affected my confidence with me being just 18. I hate the fact that i'm forced to have long, messy hair, i wish i was able to have a nice hair cut that actually suited me. I'm at the point now, where i have so little confidence in myself, that i refuse to have any pictures taken of me, because i don't want to look back at them when i'm 20 and see how much hair loss there has been in the past 2 years. Would something like a hair transplant be beneficial for me in the future? And at what age should i even be considering something like that? What should my next step be.?

10th December, 2012 at 4:32 pm


Dear Adam Thank you for your enquiry. Although we don't perform hair transplants at the centre we can offer you an alternative solution for hair loss conditions. Our medically proven treatment courses can not only prevent hair loss but regrow hair for many men and women. Results can be as good as, if not better than a hair transplant without the need for surgery. Please find further information on our website http://www.belgraviacentre.com/hairtransplant/ and check out our success stories whilst you are there at http://www.belgraviacentre.com/blog/category/success-stories/

What age does a receding hairline start? I am 21 with a thick head of hair. My biggest fear is getting a receding hairline. My dad is 46 and hasn't lost any hair

31st December, 2012 at 12:51 pm


Hi Zaidi, Thank you for your enquiry. There is no specific age that a receding hairline will start. Hair Loss effects people in different ways and at different stages of life. If you are concerned about your hair loss the best thing to do would be to visit the centre for a tricho-check so we can recommend the best form of treatment for you. If it is not possible for you to visit the London centre you can fill out our on-line diagnostic form here http://www.belgraviacentre.com/online_diagnosis/ We look forward to hearing from you soon.

I dunno why my hair are bad and I don't know how to make them right. I want strait and symmetrical hair line. I have the same problem that Jon Bon Jovi have.

7th October, 2014 at 3:42 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Vinayak, from what you describe, if you have patchy hair loss that appears circular in shape, it could be alopecia areata.

If you would like a full assessment of your condition, please contact us to book a free hair loss consultation, or if you cannot get to either of our Central London hair loss clinics, you can complete our Online Consultation.

Hi Ibrahim,

Unfortunately we are currently unable to send our hair loss treatments to Somalia. We suggest you speak to your doctor, dermatologist or a local hair loss expert who should be able to help you with this, however it is worth noting that in the UK hair loss medications are only available to men aged 18+.

Hello Jonny,

There are effective hair loss treatments available for male pattern baldness (a receding hairline is a classic sign of this hair loss condition). For more personalised advice, please either come in for a free hair loss consultation or complete our online consultation where you can upload pictures so we can advise based on your specific level of shedding.

Hi, I am a 20 year old with a receding hairline. I have no real issues with my hair but I was wondering if they're any treatments on that one particular issue (receding hairline) and how much it will cost? Thank You

26th November, 2014 at 10:36 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Michael,

A receding hairline is a sign of male pattern baldness so the treatments for male hair loss would apply here. Whilst the Propecia helps to block the DHT which causes this type of hair loss, the minoxidil is applied specifically to the areas where you are thinning in order to spur on localised regrowth - in this case around your hairline. Our comprehensive hair loss treatment courses generally start at around £600 per year but one of our treatment advisers would be able to give you exact details based on your situation and choice of treatment. If you would like to book a free consultation at one of our Central London hair loss clinics please call us on 020 7730 6666 or if you are unable to come to London, you can complete our Online Consultation.

Nowshin Neaz

Hello Mam,i'm 21years old. I have been suffering from frontal hair loss from so many years but,i can't find any treatment for this. I've tried a lot of things to regrow my hair but,nothing had worked. Please suggest me the remedy of it.

16th December, 2014 at 4:44 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hello Nowshin,

Male Hair Loss treatments will help to regrow a receding hairline. Minoxidil has been found to be particularly effective in regrowing hair in stubborn areas, such as the temples which is where hair tends to take the longest time to grow back. You can either visit one of our Central London hair loss clinics or complete our Online Consultation if you are unable to visit us in order to have a free assessment of your condition and stage of hair loss. Your hair loss specialist will then recommend the most effective treatment for you.

31st December, 2014 at 4:21 am


Is there a way you can determine why my hair is thinning if I just told you that I have the V shaped hairline and a thinning crown? I'm 21 and my hair as a whole hasn't been falling out any more than usual it's just not growing anymore so now the hair loss is noticeable..

6th January, 2015 at 12:05 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Dylan,

If you are experiencing a thinning crown then this is likely to be a sign of genetic hair loss caused by male pattern baldness. If you have a V-shaped hairline, this could either be a natural widow's peak or a receding hairline - the best way to find out if you have a specific hair loss condition, such as male hair loss, is to make an appointment to visit a specialist for an expert diagnosis, or you can complete our online consultation if you are based outside London. You can upload images to the online form to help with your diagnosis.

Hi, I'm a 16 year old black male, and my hairline has been receding since I was 13. This has really hurt my confidence and I hate taking pictures because of how bad my hair looks. My dad lost the majority of his hair when he turned 28 and I'd really like to keep my head of hair as it should be at such a young age. Are there any home remedies I can try? How old should I be if I'm considering a hair transplant? Thanks

19th January, 2015 at 12:10 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Ryo,

Hair loss treatments for male pattern baldness are available but are only suitable for men who are over age 18. Surgical hair transplants are generally not recommended for men before they are at least 25. In terms of home rememdies, there are many for keeping your hair healthy, including via your diet, but none for actually treating or reversing male hair loss. The only treatments medically-proven to do this are the medications Propecia and minoxidil which are unsuitable for you at this age. For now we would encourage you investigate ways to help boost your self-esteem and to try not to worry about your hair loss as stress can make the shedding worse. Also, do talk to your barber about haircuts that flatter thinning hair. Generally keeping it short will make the hair loss less noticeable.

27th January, 2015 at 9:53 pm


Hi, I'm 21 and I've only recently started to become conscious of my hairline. I've been living with my receding hairline from around 17 and I've starting to notice a lot of my hair is starting to thin around my temples. I'm a fully qualified hairdresser so my hair and the appearance of my hair matters a lot to me, more so now than ever. I'd love to be able to tie my hair back from time to time but my hairline makes me so insecure. What's the best advice you can give me? I'd love to visit your centre in London it's just affording getting there with prices of today.

2nd February, 2015 at 1:09 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Beau,

There are two clinically-proven medications used to treat male pattern baldness – Minoxidil and Finasteride 1mg - which we will happily discuss with you, should you decide to visit one of our clinics for a free consultation with one of our hair loss specialists. If this is not convenient, you could also complete our online consultation form. Meanwhile, try to keep your scalp and hair healthy, and avoid tying your hair back too tightly as this could lead to another type of hair loss, called Traction Alopecia.

8th February, 2015 at 10:10 am


hi i am 24 & facing hairloss from last 5 mnths previously i was having lots of hairs on my head & from last 1 mnth i noticed that my hairline is reduced by 1 inch some doctors are saying that i m suffering from male pattern baldness & recommended me to use minoxidil 5% solution but i want to regrow my hairline from temple again & minoxide solution is a long term use & can stop hairfall till its used so plzz sugeest me what can i do for this & i m from india

10th February, 2015 at 5:50 pm


Hi Ankur,

There are only two proven treatments shown to regrow hair lost to signs of male pattern baldness, such as a receding hairline. These are minoxidil and finasteride 1mg. The hair on the temples is the slowest to regrow but it can be possible. We are unable to send our products to India at the moment but if your doctors are advising you to use minoxidil 5% you should consider following their advice. It is worth noting that if you would like to try out using the minoxidil they recommend to see if it may work for you, you should start to see results within the first six months as long as you follow the directions, so shorter trials may not be beneficial.

Iam Arjun 16 yrs old. I have a receding hairline. It started at 15. Is there any solution for mine.. Hopefully

13th February, 2015 at 11:22 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hello Arjun,

The male hair loss treatments that would be most effective on reversing a receding hairline are not suitable for men under age 18. The best solution is to wait until you are old enough if you wish to use treatments and, in the meantime, ensure your diet is rich in the nutrients needed for healthy hair.

19th February, 2015 at 1:19 am


I'm a 19 year old black male. I have a receding hairline which has been worrying me as I have such thick hair. I love my hair and I don't want to lose it. As a black man, my hair is a different texture from Caucasians for example. Would the hair treatment effective provided here work on my hair? Also, it is the treatment very expensive to have?

19th February, 2015 at 10:33 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Kel,

Male Hair Loss Treatments are suitable for use on all hair types, and have been seen to produce significant regrowth results in our black clients, as well as other ethnicities. You can find many examples in our Hair Loss Success Stories. If you would like to find out more about regrowing your hairline, give us a call on 020 7730 6666 or send us a message to book a free hair loss consultation where your treatment options and pricing will be discussed with one of our experts. Courses generally start from £600 per year. Alternatively, if you are not based in London, please complete our Online Consultation.
