Can a receding hairline be stopped?
Generally for men, a receding hairline is a sign of male pattern hair loss.
This means that the hair growth is being effected in a way where the hairs become miniaturized
or thinner as time goes on.
A receding hairline can also be associated with hair thinning in the crown area.
You may also notice that you see more of your scalp when your hair is wet.
The point is that male pattern hair loss really affects the whole scalp and is expressed in
different ways based on genetic patterns.
When a patient comes to us and is diagnosed with male pattern hair loss, we first focus
on stopping the progression.
Options which are typically discussed include medicines such as finasteride and minoxidil.
The challenge with finasteride is the growing concerns about long term sexual side effects
published in several medical journals.
An alternative to medications and surgery is a non surgical procedure we developed called
Hair Regeneration. Hair Regeneration is a customized combination of an advanced wound healing material
called extracellular matrix with prp or platelet rich plasma ( a concentration of healing factors
derived from your own blood).
The treatment involves a single session of injections followed by regular follow up to
document the progress of your improvement.
Early treatment can be an option to stop and even reverse to a certain level the receding
of your hair line.
