Q&A: To Prevent Thinning Hair, Do I Have to Keep Using Hair Loss Treatments?

Name: DW

Question: If I use your hair loss treatment and it is successful, do I have to keep using it for the rest of my life to prevent hair thinning in the future?

Answer: The answer to this question will vary considerably depending on the cause and severity of your hair thinning and your medical history. If left untreated, hair thinning will often lead to hair loss or baldness. Every client we see is a unique case; it may be a result of genes, a medical condition or due to a number of other factors. The good news is that recognising and treating hair thinning early will produce better results, more quickly.

Hair Loss Treatment Programmes Vary in Length with Each PatientBroadly speaking, if you suffer from genetic hair loss then ongoing treatment, using Minoxidil (for men and women) and/or Propecia (men only), is recommended in order to see the best results. Hair loss as a result of genes is far more common in men; over two-thirds of men will suffer from male pattern baldness. For women, female pattern (genetic) hair loss is still common but there will often be other factors such as stress, hormones, pregnancy and the contraceptive pill that play a part.

If the hair thinning or hair loss is a temporary result of factors other than genes (stress, hormones, medications) then, once the underlying cause is resolved, the hair may need only one course to return to its normal growth cycle.

We also offer hair growth boosters to tailor the treatment to a client’s individual needs, in order to maximise the results.

As you can see, the length of treatment varies according to the individual. We have a team of experts here who will be able to advise you according to your needs. We offer free consultations at the clinic and will explain all treatment options available to you.
