Where does a receding hairline come from and how do I fight them?

A receding hairline in the area of the temples is a big issue for many men. They can be a vast problem that leads to considerable complexes, frustration and loss of self-confidence. No wonder then that many men ask themselves how to fight them. Is it possible to do it at home? Maybe it is better to go to a clinic of aesthetic medicine? If a receding hairline and local thinning of hair is also your problem, you can solve it with Meditravel. But how? We invite you to a short guide, which will show you an effective way to correct your receding hairline.

What is a receding hairline?

Hair loss is a characteristic type of baldness. In it, localised hair loss occurs, most often at the temples and forehead – less frequently hair falls out on the top of the head. After some time, fragments of hairless skin may fuse together and cause actual baldness.

A receding hairline most often appears in men, although this problem is increasingly being diagnosed in women as well. Medicine indicates that it is a form of androgenetic alopecia. This form of baldness is considered the most common cause of hair loss. It may appear already after the age of 20. It is commonly believed that the appearance of this type of baldness is influenced by androgens, i.e. hormones. Genetic factors and diseases with a hormonal basis are also important.

Why does a receding hairline form?

The exact causes of localised hair loss on the head are not known. Doctors are still arguing about the reasons causing androgenic alopecia. The most frequently indicated cause is hormonal factors. The key factor here is the influence of dihydrotestosterone – DHT. This hormone shrinks the hair follicles and thus prevents normal hair growth.  Genetic disposition is also a reason for hair loss. Very often men inherit their hair genes from their ancestors. This problem can be further exacerbated by an unhealthy diet (low in vitamins and minerals), the use of certain medications, stress, and stimulants.

How do you recognize your receding hairline?

A receding hairline can appear at practically any age. For men it starts mostly in the age between 20 and 30. In the case of women, a receding hairline appears normally after the age of 30, but most women notice them after menopause. Men know their hairline first of all by the fact that they notice a visible loss of hair in the frontal and temple area. In the case of women, the most common symptom is thinning hair on the whole head, mainly along the parting line. Hair loss will extend until it leads to complete baldness. It is therefore very important to prevent hair loss at an early age.

7 phases of the formation of a receding hairline

In the case of alopecia, we often speak of 7 phases of hair loss. It is worth familiarizing yourself with the symptoms of each of them. This will make it easier to determine the nature of the problem and choose a way to deal with it. It is worth noting that home remedies for hair loss usually work in 1-2 phases, at a later stage of the procedure help from a specialist is needed. If you are not sure whether you qualify for it, you can take advantage of free consultation Meditravel. This takes place online. You will need a photograph and a description of your problem. What are the stages of hair loss?

  1. The hair thins slightly, but the hairline does not change
  2. The front phase of the hair slightly recedes and a slight receding hairlines gets visible;
  3. The hairline recedes and the empty areas deepen;
  4. The hairline is visibly receding and thinning is visible on the top of the head
  5. The hair is visibly thinning, the balding area on the top of the head increases and the hairline recedes further;
  6. There is an increase in the balding area at the front and on top of the head; these two areas begin to merge, forming a large hairless patch;
  7. There is a complete loss of hair in the occipital region; in the remaining areas there is very little or no hair.

How to treat male receding hairline?

Ways of treating a receding hairline depend on the severity of baldness and inconvenience of the problem. Solutions offered by classical and aesthetic medicine differ in effectiveness, interference of the doctor, invasiveness and price.

To begin with, many men try to use home remedies against a receding hairline. These can be effective if the baldness is in the first or second stage of development. It should be noted, however, that usually home remedies only delay the process, not stop it. Home remedies are also not able to rebuild already lost hair. It is worth noting, however, that they include a change in diet and nutrition, taking vitamins and trace elements such as iron, physical activity and stress reduction. Satisfactory results may also be achieved by using commonly available preparations in the form of shampoos and conditioners for hair growth and hair wreaths. Most of the effective products contain minoxidil, which stimulates hair growth and makes it thicker. If you apply the products regularly, you will notice a slowdown in the formation of hairballs and hair loss. However, you need to wait a long time for results – at least a few weeks. Among the home remedies for hair turns are also massages of the head to stimulate blood circulation.

Trichological treatments for receding hairline

Better and above all more effective than home remedies are professional trichological treatments. They are distinguished by relatively quick effects and low invasiveness. Many of them can be carried out at an early stage of appearance of the receding hairline. Doctors of aesthetic medicine suggest that the earlier you use them, the better results you can achieve. On inhibition of androgenic alopecia is recommended, among others, mesoterpia, karboksterapia, Dr.CYJ Hair Filler, cryomassage or UV irradiation. However, before you sign up for any of these treatments a consultation with a professional diagnostician is necessary. Cosmetologist – trychologist must conduct a thorough interview and basic research. Only on this basis can choose the best treatment for the receding hairline and determine the number and frequency of visits.

How about a hair transplant?

Home remedies or cosmetic treatments can only help for a short while. They will not stop balding, nor will they restore a luxuriant head of hair. This is completely different in the case of hair transplantation. A hair transplantation is a way to permanently refill a receding hairline and which brings good results even in case of advanced androgenic alopecia.

In case of a receding hairline, hair transplantation using FUE or DHI method is recommended. In short, these procedures involve taking individual follicles from the occipital or temporal region and then implanting them in the recipient area. One graft can contain from 1 to 4 hair follicles. As a result, a lush head of hair recovers very quickly and there is no trace of the receding hairline.

Will a hair transplant give me the desired result?

There is no doubt about the effectiveness of hair transplantation – it is the best method to fight against genetic hair loss. But what about the price of a transplant? There is a lot of controversy here. Unfortunately, operations in most European clinics are still too expensive for most people. However, they do not have to give them up. A more and more popular solution is to do a hair transplantation in Turkey. Entrusting Meditravel with the organisation of the procedure, you will not only save money, but you will also end up in the hands of world-class professionals. You can find more information about a receding hairline treatment in Turkey in our Hair transplant section. You can ask additional questions to Meditravel consultants, whom you can find i.a. on Facebook.

It is advisable to undergo a hair transplantation as soon as possible – ideally when you start noticing the first symptoms of a receding hairline and baldness. Many people ignore the first symptoms of excessive hair loss and only notice them when the receding hairline is already significant. These are not easy to correct. Early diagnosis of baldness and beginning of treatment (especially in the form of hair transplantation) will bring very good results.
