Question: I’ve been told that it’s possible to stop hair loss around the top of the head (known as the crown I believe) but not if you have a receding hair-line. This is worrying for me as in my case, as well as thinning around the crown, my hair-line seems to be beginning to recede. Is this true?
Answer: Hi, Bob. It’s true that a thinning crown is generally an easier area to treat than the hairline.
Whilst treatment courses consisting of Propecia and minoxidil are both beneficial male hair loss treatments, when it comes to the hairline we generally recommend high strength minoxidil. This is especially designed to target specific areas of ‘stubborn’ hair loss, such as the temples or the crown (in the case of very fine hair or almost-bald patches).
We’ve found many of our clients with a receding hairline respond well to this type of treatment, which can also be combined with hair growth boosters to complement its effects. You can browse a number of Belgravia clients’ regrowth results following treatment for a receding hairline in our Success Stories gallery which details the length of time each client took to see results which, obviously, differs person to person.
A hair loss specialist will be able to formulate a specially-tailored, personalised regrowth plan featuring the most effective treatments for you, once they have assessed your level and pattern of thinning, either in-clinic or online.
