‘What Do You Suggest for Thinning Hair on Top?’

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

Name: Steven

Question: I am 38 years old and I’m thinning really bad at the top of my head, what do you suggest? I have longish hair and don’t want to lose it, nor do I want to wear a hat to cover my bald patch up

Answer: Hi, Steven. This is pattern of hair loss is a common sign of male pattern baldness.

As long as there is still hair present, even if it is thinning, then you have options; it is only when the hair follicles die and the skin takes on a smooth, shiny appearance that treatment is no longer possible. So whether the shedding is along the top of your head (the vertex) or you have a thinning crown, there are clinically-proven treatments available.

The once-a-day tablet finasteride 1mg can inhibit the formation of the testosterone byproduct DHT which causes thinning hair in people with a genetic predisposition to this inherited hair loss condition. To further optimise your treatment, at Belgravia we find following a combination course that also includes a recommended formulation of high strength minoxidil can provide better results, particularly in cases of stubborn hair loss. You can find many examples of men – including Josh, pictured here – who have taken this route to restoring their hair in our Male Hair Loss Treatment Success Stories gallery.

Additional hair growth boosters can be used to compliment this pharmaceutical core. Following an initial assessment, your dedicated hair loss specialist will be able to draw up a bespoke male hair loss treatment course that suits both your pattern and level of shedding, as well as your medical profile and lifestyle needs.
