Thinning hair at the top or crown of the head is extremely common for men as they age. So common is this reality that 85% of men will experience some kind of thinning as they age.
The good news is that barring certain cases of total baldness, men with a receding hairline or thinning crown have access to numerous medical and surgical solutions.
Is Treatment Likely to Grow My Hair Back?
Based on clinical data and institutional results complied at the Modena Institute of Orange County, Beverly Hills and Las Vegas, levels of regrowth vary from significant to moderate, with almost all patients experiencing increased coverage.
At the very least, effective treatment will slow thinning hair down and neutralize the dreaded descent into total baldness. For those experiencing progressive hair loss or follicle miniaturization year after year, even basic hair loss stabilization – which is the minimum to be expected from hair loss treatments – will be seen as a success. Early and immediate action is therefore imperative.
Treatments for Thinning Hair
FUE hair transplantation is the most intimate, effective and permanent solution to hair thinning in males. A minimally invasive procedure, follicular unit extraction (FUE) is virtually painless, undetectable and permanent. The procedure involves the removal of hair follicles, one by one, from hair-rich donor areas which are then transplanted to the thinning parts of the head. We encourage any interested readers to sit down with a board-certified hair restoration specialist who can properly evaluate your hair loss situation, based on factors like your medical profile, hair loss condition, and aesthetic outcomes. Finding a true expert and specialist of the craft can be tricky, so check out our guide to finding an ethical expert in the field.
GroMD’s specially formulated shampoos and conditioners are designed to enrich and maintain any hair type, keeping the scalp in a healthy and vibrant state. We may also prescribe finasteride to help promote hair regrowth, as well as other topical treatments like minoxidil (Rogaine). Such a topical program can restore shrunken hair follicles and encourage them to produce thicker, stronger hairs.
