Question: I am 60 years of age and have general hair thinning and recently losing more hair when I wash my hair. What would you recommend and are there any side effects of the product used. Thank you
Answer: Hi, Christine. Many women experience thinning hair as they get older and there can be many reasons for this, most notably female pattern hair loss.
At Belgravia our specialists use personalised hair loss treatment plans designed around topical applications of high strength minoxidil to prevent shedding and help regrow hair. This is suitable for women up to 70 years of age.
Minoxidil is a clinically-proven treatment for genetic hair loss in both men and women and can be used alongside a range of hair growth boosters to improve the condition of the hair and assist the action of the medication. It has a low incident rate when it comes to side effects and the most common issues - such as dry skin or a flaky scalp around the areas where the minoxidil is applied - can generally be easily dealt with by simply speaking to your dedicated treament advisor who can work with one of our team of hair loss specialist nurses and clinical therapists to provide a solution. However, as with any medications, if you have any concerns about side effects please do notify your treatment advisor straight away.
The Belgravia Centre is a world-renowned group of a hair loss clinic in Central London, UK. If you are worried about hair loss you can arrange a free consultation with a hair loss expert or complete our Online Consultation from anywhere in the world for home-use treatment.
