“What can I do about my receding hairline?” is one of the most common questions that men ask the specialists at Vinci Hair Clinic. In this blog, we discuss what causes hairline thinning and guide you through the treatments that can help you get yours back.
Why is your hairline receding?
A hairline that keeps getting higher is a typical sign of male pattern baldness. What starts as a receding hairline tends to develop into thinning on the vertex of the head. Unless treated, the hair loss usually continues until only the hair at the sides and back of the head remains. The condition is caused by a genetic sensitivity to DHT. This androgen hormone binds to the hair follicles and stops them from growing as they should. The strands produced get finer and weaker, eventually stopping growing altogether.
How to fix your receding hairline
Vinci Hair Clinics are proud to offer a choice of clinically-proven hair restoration treatments for men who are unhappy with the state of their hairline.
Hair transplant surgery is a permanent and highly-effective way to restore your hairline. For both FUE and FUT style hair transplants, donor hair is usually gathered from the sides and back of your head. If there is not enough hair available, grafts can sometimes be harvested from the body. The grafts are implanted into the hairline with great attention on placement to ensure a result that looks completely natural.
Minoxidil and finasteride are two medicines that can stop your hairline from receding further and help you to regrow your hair. Vinci Hair Clinic’s own brand of minoxidil, Maxogaine, is a liquid formula which also contains azelaic acid. The two ingredients work together to block the effects of DHT and stimulate the hair follicles. Finasteride is supplied as a tablet and helps to significantly lower DHT levels on the scalp while promoting hair regrowth.
Micro Scalp Pigmentation
Vinci Hair Clinic’s Micro Scalp Pigmentation is a non-surgical hair restoration solution which is ideal for men who prefer a short, shaved hairstyle. For this treatment, pigments are applied to your scalp to imitate stubbly hair growth. Different tones of pigment are used to create a flattering match to your skin-tone and the hairline is designed to provide a flattering frame to your features.
