Is It Too Late Too Start Treating Hair Loss?

Name: Anonymous

 Question: Age 32. Female.
Worried womanI have noticed generalised thinning of hair about 10 years ago. It started on both sides of scalp, now my crown is noticeably thinner and my part is rather wide! But because I had such thick hair (I am of Korean descent) it wasn’t that noticeable until the last 3-5 years. I have read that if you have generalised diffuse thinning for a long time, that it’s unlikely that it can be reversed. Is that so? I’m panicking and I have an appointment for Monday at the Belgravia Centre but is there such thing as “too late to start?”

Answer: It is not too late for you to start treating your hair loss so there is no need to panic. In fact, most people lose 50% of their hair density before they realise there’s something wrong.

Diffuse thinning is usually associated with health or medical conditions. Most of the time, if the cause is determined and addressed the hair loss is reversible. However, the fact that your hair loss has been going on for quite some time, suggests that perhaps your original condition (diffuse thinning) triggered a genetic form of hair loss. We will be able to determine whether this is the case during your initial consultation. While female pattern hair loss is not curable, it is manageable and even reversible.

Female pattern hair loss usually develops after menopause, but it is not uncommon in women in the early 20s, particularly if diffuse thinning or telogen effluvium triggered the problem. Your hair loss specialist will be able to advise whether your condition is reversible, recommend a personalised treatment course, and let you know what results you are likely to achieve.

There are hair loss treatments that are very successful at stabilising and reversing hair loss in women and The Belgravia Centre provide only the best products that are likely to help you achieve your desired results and the support you need at this time.

Hi Zibby, It does sound very much like male pattern baldness - the hereditary condition in which DHT causes the hair follicles to shrink and hence produce shorter, finer hair growth. While many herbal and cosmetic products are being marketed to people with thinning hair, none have been clinically proven to have a significant effect on hair loss. There are clinically proven options available, but a lot of people will try these herbal and cosmetic products before looking to specialist and tailored treatment. If you are concerned about hair loss, I would urge you to visit the centre for a diagnosis and consultation. To book, call 020 7730 6666 or message the centre (we're open 7 days). Alternatively, if you can’t make it into the centre, you can fill in our online diagnostic form. The information you provide will allow our specialists to assess your individual condition and provide you with suitable advice and access to the treatment most likely to provide you with superior results, if you require it.
