We offer hair loss treatments without a trip to the Doctors.


Act early: seek help before hair loss becomes significant

Male-pattern baldness affects 6.5 million men in the UK and by the age of 50, half of all men have experienced hair loss. Reactions differ but for some it can dent self-confidence or even trigger depression. If you’re unhappy with your hair loss, it pays to act sooner rather than later. It’s easier to maintain existing hair than to regrow it: if a hair follicle stops working, it usually cannot be revived.

Male-pattern baldness is the reason for hair loss in 95 per cent of men. It’s caused by oversensitive follicles reacting to a testosterone by-product, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), by shrinking and stopping working. It usually starts with a receding hairline, the hair of the crown and temples thins next, eventually leaving a horseshoe shape of hair around the back and sides of the head. In some cases, all the hair goes.

There are treatments that treat male-pattern baldness, and you can find out more about them as part of a face-to-face consultation at The Hair Centre. There’s also an online service that gives you direct access to these treatments without the need for a GP visit. Used daily, this reduces the level of DHT in the scalp.

You begin by filling in a questionnaire which will assess your suitability for treatment just email us at info@thewestminsterpractice.com for a questionaire.

In studies, nine out of 10 men kept their hair while using this treatment, and two out of three men who stayed on the programme longer experienced hair regrowth.
