Thinning Hair

Catch thinning hair before it’s too late…

In most male cases, without treatment thinning hair eventually leads to some degree of baldness, but nowadays you don’t have to put up with that. Caught early, the process that’s causing thinning hair can be halted and often reversed, so… you can stay looking younger for longer.

By far the most common cause of hair loss is male pattern baldness which can incidentally occur in both men and women. That’s an inherited ‘condition’ where your hair follicles are susceptible, over time, to testosterone (which men and women produce naturally).

Affected hair follicles gradually become less and less effective, producing thinner hair and eventually stopping working. As more and more hair follicles fail, your hair starts to look thinner.

The good news is it’s much easier to treat thinning hair than it is to treat baldness as you can see below.  So act now for the best chance of keeping your hair…

It’s much easier to treat thinning hair than baldness…
so if you act early it’s possible to thicken your hair or at
the very least prevent further hair thinning.

Thinning hair is by no means restricted to men. In fact, thinning hair in women is how genetic baldness affects women… it appears as a general thinning of hair over the whole of the top of the scalp. It rarely leads to baldness, but if you look around in a crowd, thinning hair is more common in women than you might think at first.

Thinning hair is one of the first signs of hair loss and the best results for treating hair loss can be obtained when people catch it before it progresses too far. There are many things that can cause hair to thin which is why if you’re concerned about it, we always recommend a diagnosis before you look into any treatments for hair loss. This way you can make a well-informed decision about what treatments will be most beneficial and effective for you. You can contact the centre on 020 7730 6666 to book an appointment or fill in the online diagnostic form for world-wide access to expert information and treatment.

I am very interested in Minoxidil. Could you just answer one question for me please though. I have thinning hair at my hairline, which is recededing fairly quickly. If Monoxidil is prescribed, but is found not to be the answer, will its use make my condition worse? Thank you. C Davis

Hi Christine, Clinical studies show that 65% of minoxidil users will experience hair loss stabilisation or moderate to dense re-growth. If it is not effective in generating re-growth, your condition will continue to progress as it would have under normal circumstances, and minoxidil will not make the situation any worse. However at the Belgravia Centre, we believe our success stories highlight the importance of a personalised, combination approach to combat hair loss and obtain maximum results, based on an individual’s unique information and circumstances. Please take a look at our combination hair loss treatment programs for women for more information. If you would like to arrange a personal consultation, call the centre on 020 7730 6666 or fill in the online diagnostic form and our specialists will contact you with the results and your personal recommendations.
