How to Restore Your Hairline and Your Youthful Look

Hair loss is an extremely common experience amongst men, with studies showing that over 85% of men will experience some degree of hair loss by the age of 50! Despite its prevalence many men feel ashamed of their hair loss and opt for ways to hide or conceal it. The societal pressure to maintain a full head of hair can make this natural ageing process feel like a personal failure. With modern advancements in hair loss treatments, it is now possible to completely restore your hairline and your youthful look, let's dig deeper on what's caused your hair loss and the possible treatment options.

Understanding Hair Loss 

Male hair loss scientifically known as androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness, is primarily caused by a combination of genetics and hormonal changes. The key hormone involved in male pattern hair loss is DHT (dihydrotestosterone) which is a derivative of testosterone. DHT binds to your hair follicles causing them to shrink over time. This process leads to shorter hair growth cycles and the thinning of your hair. In some cases other factors can be at play, however hormones and genetics are usually the primary culprits. Other factors influencing male pattern baldness can be: 

- Stress 

- Poor diet 

- Medical conditions 

- Medications

The Wrong Way to Deal With Your Hair Loss 

With the rise of social media, many men are feeling the pressure to look a certain way. This is leading more men than ever to feel ashamed about their hair loss, especially in sensitive areas such as the hairline which can be noticeable by others. In an attempt to conform to societal expectations, many men adopt various strategies to conceal their thinning hair. Some common methods include: 

- Hats and Caps: Wearing hats or caps is a quick and easy way to cover up a receding hairline or thinning crown. 

- Hairstyles: Adopting hairstyles that hide thinning areas, such as comb-overs or growing hair longer in certain spots, is a common tactic. 

Catching Your Hair Loss in Its Early Stages 

Because of the emotions involved in hair loss such as shame and embarrassment, many men hide and ignore their hair loss for years. While this may provide short term relief and happiness, it’s the worst thing you can do for your hair loss. Catching your hair loss early and booking an appointment with a hair loss expert such as Aventus Clinic will significantly increase the success rate of your treatment plan. For less severe cases of hair loss where a patient has only lost a minor amount of hair, medications and natural treatments may be a viable option for you meaning you can skip any extensive surgery.

Medications and treatments may include: 

Minoxidil: This widely used topical treatment is applied directly to the scalp and helps to slow down hair loss while promoting regrowth. It is suitable for early and moderate stages of hair loss and can be a convenient at-home treatment. 

Finasteride: Taken orally, this prescription medication reduces DHT levels, the hormone responsible for hair loss. Finasteride has been proven to prevent further hair loss and, in some cases, stimulate new growth. 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP therapy involves injecting a concentration of your own platelets into the scalp. This treatment leverages the body's natural healing processes to enhance hair density and thickness. 

Laser Therapy: Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) uses red light to stimulate hair follicles, encouraging hair growth and reducing thinning. This non-invasive treatment can be performed with specialised devices at home or at a hair loss clinic. 

Restoring A Youthful Looking Hairline 

Looking in the mirror and noticing significant recession can bring on a whirlwind of emotions, none of them being emotions that make you feel good. Once you have lost a significant amount of hair in your hairline, medications and natural treatments are no longer an option for you. While these treatments have very high success rates, they cannot re-grow your hair, they work to thicken and boost existing hair. FUE hair transplants have become increasingly popular over the years, with the treatment being refined further to produce more natural looking results. Clinics are now specialising in hairline restoration which produces a very subtle natural look. They work by taking hair grafts from your donor site (usually the back of your head) and placing them into your hairline at the correct density and angle. With this modern surgery it is now possible to fully restore your hairline and gain back your youthful look.
