Question: I am experiencing baldness from the front to the centre of my head. which is the best product you can recommend and how long does the treatment last?
This is where thinning hair presents along the top of the scalp from the hairline to the crown, which is the location affected by male hair loss. In people – men and women – with an inherited predisposition towards genetic hair loss, a hormone byproduct known as DHT attaches itself to the hair follicles located around the top of the head. This causes these hairs to gradually weaken and become increasingly thin before falling out.
In order to fight this type of hair loss, there are two clinically-proven male hair loss treatments you can use – assuming you are medically suitable. These are both MHRA-licensed and FDA-approved.
Finasteride 1mg, a daily oral tablet, helps to prevent the formation of DHT whilst high strength minoxidil, a topical solution which is applied directly to the scalp, helps to promote regrowth. Individually these components can help to stabilise shedding and encourage hair growth, however, they can also be used together.
Additional hair growth supporting products can also be added in to help supplement this approach.
Hair loss treatment is on-going although obviously you can stop at any point. Once you stop, however, the DHT will start to attack the follicles again and your hair loss will resume, so whilst it is something you can use for as long – or as short – a time as you decide, this is something you should be aware of.
A hair loss specialist will go through everything with you – either in person or online – in addition to making an assessment and treatment recommendations based on your specific needs and medical profile. So if you have any further queries, they will be able to provide professional advice and support both before and throughout your treatment.
