A widow’s peak is a very distinctive V-shaped hairline that appears to varying degrees in both men and women, but the correct term for a man with this shaped hairline is a widower’s peak, or of course a receding hairline.
If you feel that your hairline is moving further back, it’s an indication of a genetic condition male pattern baldness. There’s no need to worry though – although the condition is a progressive one, it is the most successfully treated hair loss condition. As long as you seek the right advice and use the optimum treatment options to suit your particular pattern of hair loss, a widow’s peak can be halted in its tracks, and in many cases hair can be regrown.
Many specialists claim that the widow’s peak is a very difficult area to treat, but the Belgravia Pharmacy stocks a product especially designed for this particular type of stubborn hair loss. It can be applied directly to aggressive areas of hair loss, such as the widow’s peak or hairline.
Minoxidil is a clinically-proven, topical male hair loss treatment approved by the MHRA and FDA, which is usually available as a lotion or foam. High strength formulations can target specific areas of hair loss that you wish to clear up, however, it is only available on prescription. For more information about the minoxidil formulations available from Belgravia please contact the centre.
Used in combination with the other medically proven treatment for hair loss, Propecia (men only) – which is actually one of the drug’s brand names, the medication is called finasteride 1mg – and alongside the optimum hair growth boosters for your individual case, shedding can be stabilised and hair can be regrown in the great majority of cases.

Natural Hair Loss Products; a Word of Advice…
Natural supplements may seem like a wholesome way to treat hair loss and correct a receding widow’s peak but, because there are no specific regulations regarding the testing, administation and marketing of these products, there is no way to be sure that they will have a positive effect on hair loss. Hair supplements such as Nourkrin, Procerin, and Hair Vitalics contain ingredients that could benefit the quality and health of the hair, but there there is no conclusive evidence to indicate that they can prevent or reverse hair loss. Then again, there is no conclusive evidence to say that they cannot. The medically licensed hair loss treatments are however a sure way know you are getting something that has been tried and tested, and definitely works.
