No one wants thinning hair, but it is a reality for millions of people every year. Thinning hair that begins at the temples and slowly spreads across the top of the head is common among men above the age of 30.
Fortunately, there are a lot of treatments available that can restore your hairline and your confidence in the way you look.
Find Out The Cause
Effective treatment begins with determining the cause of your hair loss. You could be accelerating the progression of a receding hairline due to your lifestyle, diet, or an underlying condition that isn’t being managed well. Possible causes of hair loss include illness, medication, stress, anxiety, and lack of nutrition. Heat-styling and the use of hair products with harmful chemicals can also accelerate hair loss. Finally, if you have a lot of stress or anxiety in life or have had a traumatic life experience, it can also impact your hair growth.
A hair transplant surgeon will be able to evaluate your hair loss pattern and determine the cause. Clinical hair loss evaluation is a critical step needed to determine the appropriate treatment for you. The evaluation usually includes a pull test, a pluck test, a scalp count, and if deemed necessary, a scalp biopsy. Using this information and an overview of your health and lifestyle, a hair transplant specialist can determine how best to deal with your thinning hair.
How To Regrow A Receding Hairline
A receding hairline can be stopped using a combination of lifestyle changes, nonsurgical treatments, and surgical procedures. You may be recommended to use Finasteride, Minoxidil, and topical DHT blockers and shampoos. DHT is the male hormone that causes male pattern baldness, and blocking its production may slow hair loss on your scalp. If your hair loss is caused by lifestyle choices, you will have to make readjustments. For example, you may need to adjust your nutrition and manage your stress better.
If your hair loss is caused by genetics, you may need surgery to treat it. For example, you can get a follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure done to restore your hairline by replacing donor hair from other parts of your scalp to the hairline. Hair transplant surgery can be a standalone treatment or combined with low level laser therapy or PRP and stem cell therapy for better results. PRP and stem cell therapy for hair loss harnesses the regenerative powers of your stem cells and platelet rich plasma taken to stop hair loss and even help in new hair growth. Low-laser therapy uses lasers to stimulate blood circulation and hair growth.
