Receding Hairline Treatment
When glancing around at family gatherings, you might notice that some of your male relatives are, or are at least starting to, experience what’s known as a receding hairline. Thinning in this area mainly above the forehead and around the perimeter of the face and moves to the back of the head. It is widely common in men, and is directly associated with age: Research shows nearly up to 80 percent of men may have a receding hairline by the time they’re 80 years old.
Nevertheless, if you’re here, let’s be real: It’s because you’re looking for solutions if your hairline is receding. And you’ve come to the right place.
Hair loss is a frequent problem for many men. There are all kinds of procedures that can help treat this problem, but most of them are very expensive. The PRP treatment is effective and relatively cheap.
Androgenic alopecia or Male Pattern Baldness (MPB) is responsible for the vast majority (94%) of hair loss in men. Whilst there are many reasons people lose hair (such as disease, reaction to certain medications and in rare cases extremely stressful events), most hair loss in men can be blamed on heredity. This type of hair loss can come from either or both parents and develops in most men at some stage in their lives.
What causes a receding hairline?
Sufferers of male pattern baldness are actually inheriting hair follicles with a genetic sensitivity to DHT. Hair that is sensitive to DHT begin to miniaturise, shortening the lifespan of each hair follicle affected. Eventually, these affected follicles start producing finer hair until eventually hair growth stops completely.
Male pattern baldness is generally characterised with the start of a receding hairline and a thinning crown. Hair in these areas including the temples and mid-anterior scalp appear to be the most sensitive to DHT. This pattern eventually progresses into more apparent baldness throughout the entire top of the scalp.
The average person’s scalp has about 100,000 hairs that grow from follicles beneath the skin’s surface. These hairs eventually fall out, only to be replaced by new hairs. You may lose dozens of hairs every day. If hair is damaged, or there is some medical reason that disturbs the growth cycle, the result can be a receding hairline.
It appears that a receding hairline is a hereditary trait, with hair follicles made too sensitive by certain male hormones. Men who have a family history of baldness are more likely to lose their hair. The timing of hair loss is often similar from one generation to the next.

Changes in hormones may also cause hair loss in women, though the role of hormones in female pattern hair loss is less clear than in male pattern hair loss. Menopause, for example, can lead to thinning hair, though the hairline doesn’t always change.
Illness or stress
Illness or stress may lead to sudden hair loss called telogen effluvium. People usually experience this as an unexpected shedding and thinning hair— where they lose much more hair than usual in a short period. Luckily, this hair loss often reverses itself without treatment.
There may also be a link between particular lifestyle choices and hair loss. People who smoke may experience hair loss faster than people who do not smoke.
There may also be a link between receding hairlines and diet. For example, people who do not get enough protein in their diets may lose more hair than people who eat enough protein
How is a receding hairline diagnosed?
To understand the type of hair loss you’re experiencing and its cause, you should see a dermatologist. Your doctor will ask for your personal and family medical history.
One test your doctor may perform is called a “pull test”. They will gently pull on a few hairs to see how many fall out, or how easily they fall out.
A biopsy of scalp tissue or hairs may also be helpful to determine if there is a scalp infection causing hair loss. With a biopsy, your doctor removes a small amount of tissue from the affected part of the body. The tissue sample will be tested in a lab for signs of infection or disease.
You may also have a blood test to look for conditions such as thyroid disease that may be contributing to your condition
Managing a receding hairline?
If you are looking at some easy ways to manage your hairline receding, below are two options.
Changing your hair look may help draw attention away from it. Make the hair style something you are comfortable with. A stylish example is the slicked back undercut, where a person grows the hair on top of their head out a bit and cuts the sides shorter.
Once long enough, the person slicks back the hair on top of the head, using a brush or a product. This style can make it look thicker and cover up any bald spots.
Other classic examples that work well on men with receding hairlines include a close buzz cut, medium crew cut, or a clean shave.
Taking care of delicate hair can be an integral step towards keeping it on the head. Using more natural products or at least avoiding harsh chemicals can be a step towards rejuvenating the hair. It may also help to avoid vigorous brushing or pulling the hair too much.
While a receding hairline can be upsetting for an individual to look at, it poses no risk to health. Most people can manage their hairline, and there are some treatments available that can help the hair look fuller or help it to regrow. Anybody considering trying these treatments should discuss them thoroughly with a healthcare provider to find the most suitable option.

If you are seeking a full head of hair PRP treatment is a cost effective solution that is backed by science and works. There are other treatments such as a hair transplant that are effective can be expensive. The PRP procedure is painless and it involves small precisely position injections. The PRP is injected into the nutrient rich skin layer in the scalp to stimulate the growth of hair.
Our doctors can reach this layer of the skin and inject PHP to stimulate growth. The PRP is rich in stem cells and growth factors who together help to rejuvenate hair follicles and promote the growth of hair. The skin is also stimulated by PHP and that makes it shine after the first treatment. T
he thickness of the hair also improves when the follicles are stimulated. When repeated, the hair cycle returns and new follicles appear, which leads to more hair and a thicker scalp.
What Does PRP hair growth Treatment Involve?
The first step of the treatment is to apply medical grade anesthetic cream on your scalp, to numb it and make the procedure more comfortable. The doctors will then use tiny needles to reach the nutrient-rich skin layer, making sure that PRP is injected where it should be. The next step is taking a blood test. The blood is then put through the state of the art centrifuge process to extract growth factor cells which are then concentrated. The doctors then inject the PHP in the previously positioned injection needles.When the treatment is over, the skin may appear flushed and shiny. That is perfectly normal and should go down within the first 24 hours. PHP hair loss therapy has a minimal downtime as the skin returns to normal in one day. In some rare cases, minor swelling and “shock hair loss” can occur. If that happens, contact your cosmetic doctor for consultations.
To get the desired results, the treatment has to be repeated once a month for the next six months. If you want to make sure you get visible results, the treatment has to take 9 months. The results can be seen after three or four months into the treatment and they will improve further as months go by. The next step in treatment if further results are needed would be a hair transplant.
Are the Results Visible Right Away?
No, they are not. For the PRP therapy to work, time and patience are needed. The first results are visible after about three to four months into the therapy.
The biggest changes happen in the thickness of the hair. The growth factors need a long time to fully stimulate the growth of follicles. You can expect to see the results of growth factors at least 8 months after the procedure.
Can I Expect Any Side Effects?
PRP is an extremely safe procedure because it involves stem cells and growth factors extracted from your own body. The only side effects that can occur are mild swelling and the reddened look of the scalp.
The blood thinners on the head bleed longer than other vessels in the body, so the scalp recovery takes a bit more time.
