Question: Hello, I’m 21 years of age… 22 end of the month and my hair line is receding rapidly and the confidence is slowly going
Answer: Hi Jack, whilst we understand how devastating hair loss can be on a man’s self-confidence, please do try not to let this get to you.
There are clinically-proven hair loss treatments that can help to stabilise this type of shedding, and promote regrowth . It is also well worth remembering that you are not defined by your hair, or any hair loss you may be experiencing, so perhaps try working on getting your confidence back in addition to dealing with your receding hairline.
At Belgravia we often recommend high strength minoxidil formulations from the range carried at our clinic pharmacies. This treatment is applied directly to the areas affected by Male Pattern Baldness and has been seen to produce significant regrowth results for stubborn areas of hairloss, such as a receding hairline. When used in combination with the clinically-proven once-a-day tablet, finasteride 1mg, this can generally enhance minoxidil-only results in our experience.
You mention that your hairline seems to be receding quickly. Whilst a receding hairline is caused by the hereditary condition Male Pattern Baldness – which is down to genetics – there are a number of lifestyle factors which are believed to influence the rate at which the hair sheds. Commonly, issues including stress, smoking, and deficiencies or imbalances in the diet can accelerate shedding from male pattern hair loss so try to ensure you are eating properly, getting enough sleep and are taking steps to manage any anxieties.
We recommend that, in order to receive personalised treatment and hair growth booster recommendations for a course tailored to your specific requirements, you undergo a tricho-check. This can take place in person, one-on-one at either of our Central London hair loss clinics, or if the locations are inconvenient you can complete our Online Consultation form instead. This way a hair loss specialist can provide you with dedicated advice and support, as well as answering any questions you may have about regrowing your hair. Hopefully knowing that there is help and a solution available will, at the very least, put your mind at rest.
