Receding Hairline – Prevent and Regrow a Receding Hairline

Many say that it’s not possible to regrow a receding hairline but The Belgravia Pharmacy offers a range of high strength minoxidil products which clients have used to great effect, seeing unprecedented levels of 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 tailored treatment programmes based around these medications as well as added hair growth boosters. Treatment programmes are personalised for each individual to meet their needs and ensure optimum results for their 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.

Hi, Max. I have spoken to one of our hair loss specialists who provided the following answer: "

A receding hairline is a classic sign of Male Pattern Baldness which is a progressive condition. This means that the symptoms will not simply go away once it has been treated to the point where regrowth occurs. Treatment needs to be ongoing in order to continue to address this ongoing hair loss condition. If you were to start using a standard course featuring high strength minoxidil, the most popular form of treatment for a receding hairline among Belgravia clients, but stopped once you were happy with the regrowth results you experienced, your hair loss would start again. Your hairline would recede once more and the miniaturisation process caused by male hair loss would continue as before given there is no longer any treatment to help inhibit the DHT which causes this to happen. Some people feel better equipped to deal with hair loss as they age. So, whilst men may use treatments earlier on, later in life they may feel comfortable enough to let nature take its course and decide to stop following their male hair loss treatment course. It is very much a personal decision for each individual."

Thank you for your response. I have one more question. Can you take the product for a long time period say 10+ years?

Hello Max, Yes - you can continue to use the product for as long as you wish.

Hi, I am 17 years old and i have been pulling my hair out ever since i can remember. I am not so bad now but i used to be really bad when i was younger. Now i still do it sometimes but not so much. However, my hairline seems to be receding on both sides... Slowly but i can tell by looking at my past photos and how i style my hair... I am not sure it's because I have been pulling it out so much it has just stopped growing back or it is because I just have a naturally receding hairline. I know in the past and even a little recently I pull my hair or play with it in those spots which probably doesn't help. I just hate it. At 17 it is not what i want. Do you know if its me or if its natural? and any solutions? Thank you!

I'm loosing hair at an alarming rate at the sides of my fringe, I'm 17 going on 18 very soon and my friends and family have noticed this I don't know what's brought this on but can anyone help ?

7th January, 2016 at 11:14 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Alan,

Although it tends to occur more often between your 20s and 30s onwards, male pattern baldness can strike in your late teens too.

What you describe sounds like a receding hairline which is a classic sign of male hair loss. However, it may be something much more simple - a maturing hairline. This is where the hairline changes during puberty and is often mistaken for hairloss.

If you do have MPB, then treatment for a receding hairline in the form of topical applications of high strength minoxidil which is applied directly to the affected areas to stimulate growth, is generally recommended. We would advise you to obtain a professional diagnosis of your condition first though, either in person or if you are unable to visit one of our Central London hair loss clinics in person, then by using our online consultation.

Hi Lakhan, we do not send Belgravia hair loss treatments to India, however, as you are based here in London there is a way that it could be possible for your brother to become a client. Please read this response from one of our senior hair loss specialists for details.

Hi Mark, As you are 16 this could be the beginnings of premature male pattern hair loss or it could simply be a maturing hairline. You may find the following reading useful:

Hi Abishek, You may find this article of interest as it refers to a similar question from another 17 year old.

14th May, 2016 at 10:57 pm


HI Im not really suffering from hair loss. being 20, i think i may have lost very very minimal amounts of hair from the corners of my hairline. like i said, very minimal. i have naturally thick hair, which is good. i honestly just want to maintain my current hair, and do whatever to prevent hair loss as much as I can. I am looking to apply jamaican black castor oil to my scalp 2 times a week take biotin pills daily regenpure dr shampoo twice a week (after sleeping on castor oil and washing in the morning) is there anything else you recommend? is my routine good?

16th May, 2016 at 9:25 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Hamza, hopefully this response from one of our senior hair loss specialists will help explain why your haircare routine is separate to treating or preventing hair loss.

24th May, 2016 at 4:40 pm

Chantal McCulligh

i have to say, these before and after shots are pretty amazing but how expensive is this treatment? You can get the same results simply by using no-sulfates, no parabens or DEA shampoos for hair loss.

24th May, 2016 at 5:31 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Chantal, unfortunately that's not the case. Whilst using hair type-appropriate formulas such as paraben-free shampoos to cleanse the hair may help to improve the condition of the hair, they cannot treat hair loss conditions. There are only two medically proven treatments for hair loss, one of which - minoxidil - is suitable for men and women and the other - finasteride 1mg - is only suitable for men. The consumer advice magazine Which? recently published research into the claims of shampoos claiming to boost thinning hair and how they operate on a cosmetic level and do nothing to treat hair loss which is most often caused by genetics. In terms of pricing it depends entirely on the treatment course a client chooses to follow but the price range tends to be between £600 to £2,000 per year.

Hey, am 21 and i've had patches in the middle of my scalp for ages. I can handle that, but lately the patches have began to grow and join up. The hair is thinner or non-existent. Furthermore, I've noticed lately that my hairline is beginning to recced way too quickly. The hair at the front is not as thick as it used to be. All of this in like 2 months. It's begging to stress me out. What can I do? How can I get a consultation ?

Arjun rajeev

Hello, I'm 18and I've been loosing my hair for two years. Now my hairline has receeded significantly but I'm able to hide it now. The hair at the top is little thinning. I' ve read that masturbation causes hairloss and I was a frequent masturbator in the past but reduced it now. Can i get back my hair. I am in India

6th June, 2016 at 2:48 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Toby, the following advice and this hair loss treatment information specifically regarding a receding hairline should prove helpful to you.

6th June, 2016 at 2:55 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Arjun, firstly masturbation does not cause hair loss - this is a myth. If you have thinning hair and a receding hairline these are both signs of Male Pattern Baldness. Although we cannot treat you as you are based in India, there are male hair loss treatments available and if you consult with a local specialist they should be able to help you. Very best of luck.

28th June, 2016 at 1:48 pm


Hi, Im 17 and im not sure if my hair is receding, as my hairline has always been very set back since i was very young, and my grandad's hairline is very similar and he still has a reasonable amount of hair in his 70's. I wasn't bothered about my hairline until i realized my hair is on the sides of my head, it has always been like this, but it is still making me really worried. The hair on the top and back of my head is really thick. Thanks.

28th June, 2016 at 1:49 pm


Sorry, meant to say my hair is "thinning" on the sides of my head.

30th June, 2016 at 9:44 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi George, it sounds like your hairline forms a natural widow's peak which is not always a sign of hair loss - you can find out more in this full explanation one of our senior specialists has provided for you. I hope you find this useful.

Hi, i m 23 years old from bangalore,india and having receding hairline i have taken 15 months Medication treatment for hair growth but i have n't got any hair growth could you please let me know how will you examine me becoz i stays in india and and also how will you delivers the medicines after the consultation and examination to my place.

20th July, 2016 at 9:27 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Emran, we cannot treat patients based in India so we recommend you speak to whoever you purchased your treatment from and ask them if there is anything else available to help you, or perhaps see another local specialist for a second opinion.

23rd July, 2016 at 1:45 pm


Hello, I am 13 and I have had a receding hairline since I was a young kid. On My hairline there is a small bald spot in the middle of the hairline, the rest of my hair is thick all around so I am unsure what is happening?

25th July, 2016 at 2:57 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Josh, from what you describe it sounds like this may be something called Alopecia Areata which is very common and the hair can often recover from naturally in time. As you are under 16 we recommend you speak to your parents or guardian about this and visit your GP so that they can properly examine you. We wish you the very best of luck.

How long after a full head of hair has been regrown, will it last?

22nd August, 2016 at 10:10 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Harry, as the enzyme in the body (DHT) which causes the hair to thin and eventually fall out in those affected by androgenetic alopecia is constantly produced, male hair loss treatment is on-going. It is similar to having to brush your teeth every day in order to prevent plaque build-up. Once you stop treatment the hair will be subject to the effects of DHT again so will start to gradually thin and shed again.

30th August, 2016 at 8:59 am


Hey there im 17 and i think i have a receding hairline. But i noticed that there are some small haïr all over the bald spots and hairs are even growing on my forehead. What can I do ? And can you explain me if the hairs Will eventually grow? Thanks.

30th August, 2016 at 2:25 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi there, it's very hard to diagnose you from the information you have given here. However, as you are 17 it could be the case that your hairline is simply changing shape. This is an absolutely standard part of puberty but is more noticeable in some than others, and is called a 'maturing hairline'. It is not a sign of hair loss. If you are still worried about it in, say, a year's time, then you may want to consider a professional diagnosis via a proper hair loss consultation. For now though it does not sound like a receding hairline but could just be that you have a natural 'widow's peak' hairline.

26th September, 2016 at 6:29 am


Hi,Im a 21 year old boy who is suffering from hair loss.luckily i visited a doctor as soon as i noticed that i was losing my hair and he offered me to use finastride 1mg per day.Im not losing my hair but mine is thin specially on scalp and temples,i do have lots of hair on those both areas.Im from Iran and you have mentioned once that you are not able to send your products.Do mind telling me what i can use?Do your customers use minoxidil?please help me...
