Question: Hi, my hair line is slightly receding. Is there any harm in trying Provillus or Procerin? Any advice would be a great help thanks.
Answer: A receding hairline is a common early sign of Male Pattern Baldness which is caused by a genetic predisposition to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This hormone attacks the hair follicles causing the growth of new hair to slow and eventually stop. Male Pattern Baldness usually follows a distinct pattern which is known as The Norwood Scale.
Provillus and Procerin are natural supplements incorporating Saw Palmetto, a herbal anti-DHT product. There may not be any harm taking either product but it is unlikely that either will have a significant effect on hair growth. Like Belgravia’s own supplement, Hair Vitalics, which contains many of the same ingredients as Provillus and Procerin (including saw palmetto), none of these products are advised by our medical team as a standalone treatment for hair loss because there is no firm evidence that they can can significantly help to reduce hair loss.
A receding hairline is difficult to treat and regrowth is only usually possible if there is a certain amount of ‘vellus’ (thin) hair present. Belgravia offers a range of high strength minoxidil formulations which can be applied directly to the stubborn hairline area, making it convenient as well as effective.
Having seen this type of treatment produce many successful regrowth results, Belgravia’s hair loss specialists tend to recommend this as the best treatment for a receding hairline and believe it offers the best likelihood of seeing regrowth, especially when treatment is sought early.
Combined with finasteride 1mg and various hair growth boosters there is every likelihood that further recession and general thinning will be stopped and any shed hair will be regrown to its maximum potential.
