Over the past 5 years ive noticed a general thinning of my hair overall but never really thought it was that bad as plenty of people i went to high school with are already bald or visibly showing signs of recession etc. i usually wear my hair up and over the past 2 years my right temple has thinned out a lot. the v shaped hairline is something ive had from my youth.Although the shape is still there i can see where the eventual receding hairline will be.
Ive recently joined belgravia hairloss centre and they have put me on propecia. So will the hair grow back? the left temple is fine or a lot thicker at the moment anyway! if ive started on propecia would it be silly to maybe have my temple filled in at 26 or should i maybe add minoxidil into the mix? As that is my only real issue at this moment in time!
Propecia rarely regrows hair in the temple peaks or frontal hairline, but it could prevent you from losing more hair at those locations. Minoxidil also rarely works at the front of the hair (it works best in the crown) but it could be worth a try. I usually recommend to my patients that they initially stick with one medication at a time for now to see what kind of response you get over the course of the first year.
