Hi. I am a 23 year old male. From 4-5 years my hairs are getting thinner. I have noticed that my hairs are falling but from last 2-3 years the density is same. Is it possible to regrow fallen hairs and density which was before 5 years?
Hi, Kaustubh. We are assuming that you are asking is it possible to regrow hair loss
from 5+ years ago that has been lost due to male pattern baldness. Everyone affected by genetic hair loss loses their hair at a different pace so the answer really depends upon your rate of shedding.
In cases of Male Pattern Hair Loss
the condition appears gradually and can start any time following puberty. It only affects the top of the scalp and hairline and causes the hairs in these areas to thin over a number of years. Some men may not even notice the initial signs of hair loss
for a year or more, especially if their rate of hair thinning is slow.
The process that causes this thinning hair
is known as 'follicular miniaturisation'. It occurs in both men and women with a genetic sensitivity to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
. As the DHT circulates in the blood stream it latches on to the hair follicles affected by pattern hair loss and slowly crushes them. This causes finer hairs to be produced and can lead to eventual baldness if measures are not taken to prevent baldness
At your age it is quite possible that a customised hair loss treatment
course could prove useful as it is unlikely you will have developed true baldness - where the hair follicles no longer function and so cannot respond to treatment. By stabilising your shedding and promoting hair growth, your hair density should improve. In order to confirm this assumption and to be able to tailor a bespoke treatment course comprising clinically-proven male hair loss products and appropriate hair growth boosters
, a consultation - either online or in person at one of Belgravia's hair loss clinics - would be necessary.
