Question: I’m losing my hair – just a NW1 hairline at the moment but I want to stop it receding any further as soon as I can – but there’s no hair loss clinic near where I live so how can I get treatment?
Answer: Hi, Key. The good news is, you don’t need to have a hair loss clinic near you in order to get treatment! You don’t mention whereabouts you are based but if you are based in the UK but outside London, or if you are in many other countries around the world, we are often able to send out hair loss treatment by post or via a courier service.
There are two clinically-proven Male Pattern Hair Loss medications which are both MHRA-licensed and FDA-approved; these are the oral DHT inhibitor, finasteride 1mg, which can be used by medically-suitable men aged 18 and over, and topical applications of high strength minoxidil to help accelerate hair growth.
Some formulations of this dose-dependent hair loss drug are available over-the-counter, whilst others are available only with a prescription; finasteride is prescription-only. Both can be used on their own or together as an on-going way to help in preventing baldness.
As you are particularly concerned about a receding hairline, which is a stubborn area of the scalp as hair grows slower in that region, Belgravia hair loss specialists would generally recommend a combination approach featuring both minoxidil and finasteride.
This is so the one-a-day pill can reduce the amount of DHT in your system – which is what hair follicles along the top of the scalp from crown to hairline become sensitive to, leading to thinning hair and receding in cases of Male Pattern Baldness – while the topical solution can actively encourage localised hair growth.
These men’s hair loss treatments can be further augmented by additional hair growth supporting products, including the FDA-cleared LaserBand device and/or Hair Vitalics for Men food supplement, which was specially developed by Belgravia hair experts to support the maintenance of normal healthy hair growth.
In order to determine which hair loss products are most suited to you, taking into account your condition, level and pattern of shedding, medical profile and any lifestyle needs, the first step is to have a professional consultation.
This can be done online using the website’s online consultation service which allows you to upload photos which will help your specialist to diagnose your condition and recommend the optimal treatments in line with their findings.
Once your form, including any photo attachments, has been submitted, it is sent directly to a hairloss specialist for review. They will then contact you to discuss their diagnosis and recommendations, which will also be emailed to you, for your consideration along with the relevant prices and payment options.
Should you decide to proceed with treatment, you are then allocated your own dedicated treatment advisor who will have your course components sent out to you at your address of choice. From then on you can contact them at any time throughout the process for advice on things like application reminders and general support, plus they will check in with you regularly for progress updates and to ensure everything is going as well as is possible.
As you are currently at an early stage of haiross, as a Norwood 1 classification represents, there is plenty of time for you to ensure you get all the details you need to make an informed choice. I hope this information is helpful but if you have any further queries, please do let us know.
