“What Do You Recommend for a Thinning Crown?”

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

Name: Alex

Question: What do you reccomend for thinning of the crown. I’m only 20 and it’s starting to thin really bad. It’s heredatory but It’s really getting me down.

What Do You Recommend to Restore Hair Loss on a Thinning Crown?Answer: Hi, Alex. You are absolutely right about your hair loss being hereditary; a thinning crown is a classic sign of male pattern baldness.

It means that you have inherited a genetic sensitivity to a hormone byproduct called DHT. This binds itself to the hair follicles located around the top of the head and attacks them. As they weaken the hair becomes gradually thinner and, if left untreated, may eventually lead to baldness in these areas.

When it comes to helping to halt male hair loss and promoting regrowth, there are a number of options. You can use finasteride 1mg, a daily oral tablet which is MHRA and FDA approved for the treatment of genetic hair loss. This is designed to inhibit the formation of DHT. Another option is a topical solution called minoxidil. You apply this to the scalp once or twice per day, as advised by your hair loss specialist, to help stimulate the follicles into action.

Used together, the actions of finasteride 1mg and minoxidil compliment each other and form the basis of many Belgravia male hair loss treatment programmes. They can also be combined with hair growth boosters to help improve the condition of the hair and further encourage treatment results. Hair loss professionals will be able to provide you with recommendations for a personalised treatment programme featuring components designed to address your precise stage and pattern of thinning.

As you can see, there are options for dealing with your hair loss so do try not to worry, not least of all because anxiety and stress are known to accelerate thinning in some cases.
