Receding Hairline – Prevent and Regrow a Receding Hairline

Receding Hairline

(*Results may vary and are not guaranteed)

Many say that it’s not possible to regrow a receding hairline but The Belgravia Pharmacy offers a range of high strength minoxidil products which clients have used to great effect, seeing unprecedented levels of hair regrowth to their frontal areas of hair loss or baldness. Hugo uses a treatment course based around formulations of the two medically proven medications for hair loss inclusive of various Hair Growth Boosters. The treatments are specially combined to ensure both the stubborn areas and the overall thinning are targeted.

As you can see from the photos*, Hugo experienced considerable hair regrowth at his areas of frontal hair loss – in the photo from month 4 the new hair is much shorter than the rest of his hair so the difference is clear to see. There are also many more receding hairline regrowth photos at the bottom of this page.

comment male pattern hair lossHugo’s Comments: After 3 months of treatment I can’t believe the results.  Thank you so much Edyta and The Belgravia Centre. I’m so happy.”

Hugo’s hair loss is caused by a genetic condition called Male Pattern Baldness. This form of hair loss affects each person differently – some will begin to see signs of thinning at an early age while others will be affected later on in life. Some will become completely bald without treatment and some will experience a much slower progression resulting in less severe thinning. Genetic hair loss also takes different shapes – some men will lose their hair predominantly at the temples (hairline) whereas others experience hair loss from the crown, and for some the hair will diffusely thin all over the top of the scalp.

Receding Hairline Growth

(*Results may vary and are not guaranteed)

Duncan is another Belgravia treatment course user that has seen vast amounts of regrowth at his temples and crown*.  “I always had a nasty feeling that my hair loss would catch up with me after seeing it affect so many members of my family. I decided I didn’t want to go down the same path as them and do nothing. With the medication and building the laser in to my weekly routine, I couldn’t be happier with the results.  Everyone who is still unsure should go for it. The quicker you start, the quicker you can get the constant burden off your mind! Many thanks.” You can see Duncan’s ‘Success Story’ page here.

Duncan and Hugo’s comments can be found in Belgravia’s comments book, which is kept on the clinic reception. There are also hundreds more from happy hair loss treatment course users. They are all displayed in Belgraviacentre.com’s ‘Hair Loss Success Stories’ section (click on the link to view them all, as well as photos). Patients also regularly comment on our Facebook Page.

Although there are hundreds of treatments advertised for the prevention of hair loss there are in fact only two that are medically proven. The Belgravia Centre offers specially tailored treatment programmes based around these medications as well as added hair growth boosters. Treatment programmes are personalised for each individual to meet their needs and ensure optimum results for their specific case of hair loss. These treatment programmes ensure the highest chances of hair regrowth available. We have provided some more ‘before and during treatment’ photos below for your perusal.

Hi, I'm 34 and am suffering with MPB and at the moment it's just a receding hairline with 'widow's peak' syndrome. I only notice how bad it is when my hair is wet - otherwise I've able to comb the hair over and pretty much get away with it for now. I realise it's only going to get worse though and was considering whether or not I need a transplant or not. I gather that's not what you offer though so I'm interested in other options (possibly less expensive ones). I have bought Regaine the past but usually the foam stopped working (and became liquid) so I gave up. Thank you.

HI Craig, we hope this response helps to guide you as to what can help to regrow a receding hairline. If you would like to arrange a consultation, do just let us know.

14th November, 2016 at 8:01 pm


hello When you stop using the growth boosters/high strength minoxidil, wont the effects reverse and the balding continue again? Just wondering if this this form of treatment is one which would need to be continued for as long as you want to regrow/hold onto the hair etc Thanks

15th November, 2016 at 10:36 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Aaron, yes - treatment is required on an on-going basis as the condition is a permanent one. So, in the same way that you brush your teeth every day to get rid of the constant build up of plaque, men who use hair loss treatment apply it daily in order to deter the DHT which causes male pattern baldness.

29th November, 2016 at 12:00 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Fahad, this sounds like classic signs of Male Pattern Baldness. Unfortunately we cannot treat you as you live in Pakistan and we are unable to send our hair loss treatment there, so we recommend you speak to a local specialist or your doctor/dermatologist to find out what treatment is available nearby. Wishing you the best of luck.

Hi I'm a 16 year old guy and I have a receding hairling. I'm extremely self conscious about it and try to use gel but that doesn't work . My parents aren't really helping saying "You have a high forehead is all". But with people in school saying things I want a change. This would really boost my confidence I was wondering is it safe and am I too young? I'm a nice guy I just hate this about myself. I needed to get that out thanks.

I'm 16 and already have a receding hairline. My dad is bald and I know it's genetic. Do I have to be a certain age to start treatment?

22nd February, 2017 at 3:00 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Anthony, if you are deemed suitable, it is possible to use a topical, minoxidil-only male hair loss treatment course from the age of 16 years old. From 18 years of age, again, if deemed suitable, you may be able to add an oral treatment, finasteride 1mg, into your treatment regime too. You would need to be properly diagnosed and undergo the proper medical checks first which can be done either in person at one of our Central London hair loss clinics, or via our Online Consultation form if you are based outside London. We hope this helps.

Hello. I am 25 years old, with Afro Caribbean hair and I have noticed that my hair line is thinning very badly. I would like to know what is the best way to get it to grow back thick and remain that way without going through surgery. I've been thinking about getting a hair transplant but it's too expensive and I didn't want to have a visible scar at the back of head. I've tried castor oil and many other natural products to grow it back but I have not had any luck.

Hi Shay, the advice above applies to men of all races and hair types but here is a full response from one of our senior hair loss specialists which we hope you find helpful.

I need this please im only 17 and my hair line is terrible and is thinning badly

4th July, 2017 at 1:59 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Jordan, male hair loss treatment is available for 16s and over who deemed are medically suitable. We would recommend that you have a consultation first so that a specialist can diagnose the cause of any hair loss and advise you accordingly.

20th July, 2017 at 2:51 pm


Hi, i am 25 i had a very good density and a good hairline too from past 2 years i am suffering for a terrible hair loss and thinning which resulted to receding hairline. Please advice.

20th July, 2017 at 3:51 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Harish, the information in the article above should be helpful. It is possible for male pattern baldness to cause a receding hairline without causing a thinning crown or hair loss from the top of the head at the same time so the information here is still applicable. You can also find out more on our Hair Loss Treatments page.

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Asha, the information above should be helpful! If you are interested in finding out more about treatment for a receding hairline, the next step would be to have a consultation, either in person or online.

30th September, 2017 at 2:29 am


i am 17 years old and i am having a receding hairline what should i do

2nd October, 2017 at 12:33 pm

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Kartikey, the advice above applies to you although at 17 you cannot use finasteride 1mg - you can, however, use high strength minoxidil formulations. The first step would be to have an assessment in order to confirm whether you do actually have a receding hairline due to early onset Male Pattern Hair Loss or whether it is simply a maturing hairline.

4th October, 2017 at 9:31 pm


Hi There I'm 27 years old and haven't noticed any major hair shedding or receding as of yet but i'm completely paranoid of my hairline receding. I was thinking of using regain foam to prevent it before it possibly begins to happen. would this be a good idea or could it have the opposite effect? Many thanks Nick

5th October, 2017 at 11:12 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Nick, it's unnecessary to use any hair loss treatment if you don't have a hair loss condition. You may simply not be genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness and may never experience a receding hairline so we would not recommend using any treatment without a confirmed diagnosis. If you would like to put your mind at rest you can have a consultation but treatment only starts once you start to notice signs of hair loss, if indeed this happens. Try not to worry! If you do start showing signs then treatment can begin immediately but is fairly pointless before then.

ethan burrel

hi, im 18 with a rapidly receding hairline and was wondering about other treatments that are not monoxil as it will need to be consistently done and not sustainable + if i stop the hair will carry falling out... any recommendations like a transplant ect thanks

16th October, 2017 at 9:34 am

Sarah Belgravia

Hi Ethan, as the cause of a receding hairline - male pattern baldness - is a permanent condition for which there is currently no cure, managing this hair loss through the on-going use of male hair loss treatment is currently the only clinically-proven solution. A hair transplant is not recommended before at least 30 years of age and, even if the surgical route is chosen, the hair affected by male pattern hair loss will continue to remain susceptible. What this means in practice is that, say a hair transplant fills out the hairline, if hair loss treatment is not used on an on-going basis as part of the transplant aftercare routine, it is possible for the hair around the top of the head - the area affected by MPB - to continue to thin. This can potentially leave unnatural looking results where the grafted areas become 'floating islands' of hair surrounded by thinning hair. At 18 you have time on your side to decide how is best for you to deal with your hair loss and research all options open to you.

18th October, 2017 at 8:32 am


Hi, im 26 and have a receding hairline, what treatment would i need? would like to regrow my hair. Also what procedures before is needed? thanks

20th October, 2017 at 10:01 am


Hi Ash. Information on the effective and proven treatments can be found on our Hair Loss Treatments page. I have passed your details on to one of our treatment advisors to contact you to go through things with you.
