What to do about Men’s Frontal Hair Loss

Different Stages of Hair Loss Have Different Treatment Options

man with frontal hair lossAre you a gentleman looking in the mirror only to discover more of your forehead showing than you previously recalled? Frontal hair loss is usually the first sign of male pattern baldness. There are, however, men’s hair loss treatments you can implement in the beginning through more advanced phases – from styling to consultation with a hairline surgery doctor.

In the early grades, men’s hair loss can be downplayed with the help of a good barber or hair stylist. One method is to leave the front of your hair a bit longer than the rest in order to style your locks and give the appearance of even hair flow. As the recession progresses, however, this method will only draw attention to the receding hairline. Consider a shorter hairstyle and a bit of gel to tousle your hair for a balanced, fuller look.

As hair loss advances, more sophisticated bald treatments are necessary. Medications such as Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil) can assist in thickening your hair. Be aware, though, that you must have some hair in order for these medications to work. In other words, they will not grow back hair in established bald areas. Always check with your physician on the correct application and possible side effects.

A permanent solution is Follicular Unit Extraction – or FUE – hair restoration. Consulting with a hair transplant specialist can determine if you are a qualified candidate, explain the procedure from pre- to post-operation, and answer any questions you have. Our clinic’s own Dr. John Diep was chosen by Newsweek Magazine as one of the best FUE doctors in the field and is the inventor of “The Diep Extractor.” Any specialist with whom you consult should be board-certified and experienced.
