Question: Hi I am 42 years old and started noticing my hair starting to thin on the front of my head. I am so scared because these days looks seem to be a big issue. I use to have amazing hair – alopecia runs in my family, my aunts and grandma had it so bad they wore wigs. Please help, I do not want to be bald. I already have issues with body dysmorphia. I am trying rogain; tired of crying daily, I don’t like to even look in the mirror anymore. If you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
Answer: Hi, Mel. We would highly recommend that you have a hair loss consultation so that a specialist can assess you. Gaining support and professional insight in this way can be invaluable in ascertaining the facts of the matter in order to put your mind at rest.
It is important to firstly diagnose the precise hair loss condition you are experiencing in order to devise a suitable treatment plan.
The majority of conditions which cause thinning hair in women are reversible and there are effective hair loss treatment options available to help stabilise shedding and promote hair growth. Your specialist can tailor a course featuring a range of clinically-proven treatments and hair growth boosters to your specific needs, and advise you on how to use and apply them, as well as being a source of comfort throughout your journey back to healthy hair.
If you do not live near enough to visit one of Belgravia’s Central London hair loss clinics, you can simply complete an online consultation form on our website which allows you to upload photos. Following this, a specialist will contact you to discuss everything and, should you decide to go ahead with treatment, this can be sent out to you. We understand that it is far easier to say than to do, and hair loss can be an extremely sensitive and troubling condition, but do try not to worry. There are support systems and treatment options out there.
