Question: am 22 and have a receding hair line and a thinning hair at the crown of my head.it doesnt look tat bad.but wondering how should i stop it
Answer: Hi, Dave. No problem at all, these are classic signs of male hair loss and there are clinically-proven treatments available to help stop this shedding and promote regrowth.
Two medications form the basis of most male hair loss treatment courses. A once-a-day oral tablet called finasteride 1mg helps to inhibit the formation of DHT – the substance in the body which attacks the hair follicles around the top of the head in those with a genetic predisposition to male pattern baldness, leading to thinning hair and potentially complete hair loss.
The other key treatment is high strength minoxidil which is a topical solution applied directly to the areas where it is needed.
This is especially recommended to treat a receding hairline as this is a stubborn area but many Belgravia clients have seen impressive regrowth results from applying their prescribed minoxidil formulation as directed.
It can also be beneficial in treating a thinning crown as you can see from these Success Stories, as it increases localised blood flow wherever it is applied in order to accelerate the hair growth process.
Whilst each of these treatments can be used individually, our hair loss specialists continue to see the best results in those who follow a comprehensive course combining the two.
Additional boosters, and other beneficial add-on treatments such as at-home laser therapy via the HairMax LaserComb can also work well with these treatments but, as with all treatments, this depends on your specific needs and suitabilities which would be assessed before any personalised recommendations were made.
