General Thinning on Top – Regrow Hair
Male Pattern Baldness can present three common patterns of hair loss – a receding hairline, thinning crown, or general thinning, where there is no distinct area of hair loss – instead the thinning is spread evenly over the top area of the scalp.
In the majority of cases, this pattern of hair loss is treated with success. Many Belgravia patients who come to us for help with thinning hair will experience varying levels of regrowth after following comprehensive hair loss treatment plans tailored for each person’s case.
Here we provide examples of men with general thinning so that you can compare your own pattern of hair loss and get an idea of what you might expect in the way of results.
Belgravia patient Nicolas (photos on the right), experienced general thinning caused by male pattern baldness. After following a Belgravia course of medically-proven treatments alongside complementary hair regrowth boosters, he started to notice significant regrowth. He said of his treatment, “It’s working great… It’s done the trick as it was really thinning…”.
You can see hundreds of examples of patients’ Before & During treatment photos in our Hair Loss Success Stories with many different patterns of hair loss. These provide clear images showing the results clients have experienced through using our medically-proven hair loss treatments, alongside genuine patient feedback, taken from our in-clinic Comments Books, posts and reviews left on our Facebook page, and our Google+ reviews.
What causes thinning hair?
Thinning hair that presents across the top of the head is a result of naturally-occurring chemical attacks on hair follicles that are predisposed to male hair loss.
As with all instances of genetic balding, a reaction takes place within the body where the hormone testosterone combines with the enzyme 5-alpha reductase to form a substance known as dihydrotestosterone, or ‘DHT’.
This DHT attacks the top of the head, weakening follicles and preventing sufficient nutrients and oxygen from being delivered, making hair gradually weaken and thin. Left untreated, the damaged hair will then fall out and new hair will stop growing, which can lead to total baldness.
Treatments for thinning hair
There are two clinically-proven treatments for male hair loss – minoxidil and finasteride 1mg – which form the basis of our approach to treating thinning hair. It is recommended that these are used as part of a comprehensive hair loss treatment programme, tailored to the needs of each individual’s own stage of hair loss.
Every Belgravia patient is monitored by a dedicated treatment adviser and hair loss specialist who will be able to answer any queries you have along the way, making sure you are always on the optimum treatment plan at each stage of your regrowth journey.
They will also photograph your quarterly results so you can properly document and assess your progress. This is particularly important in cases of hair thinning as it can be hard to see the results properly, given the location of the shedding.
If you are concerned about hair thinning or hereditary hair loss, make your appointment for a free assessment with a Belgravia hair loss expert at either of our Central London clinics by calling 020 7730 6666 or sending us a message.
