What kind of results can I expect after treatment for my receding hairline? (photo)Skin, Hair & Nails Hair Loss
Hi, I am a 29 years old male. I am losing hair from the front of my head, and have a receding hairline. May I know if my hair loss is curable or reversible, and what I should do next? What kid of results can I expect with treatment?
You should seek treatment early with your doctor or dermatologist so that early treatment can be instituted to prevent further hair loss. You can discuss further with your doctor about the different treatment options.

It appears you have male pattern hair loss. The main cause of this is high DHT (dihydrotestosterone) levels, a type of male hormone. Oral finasteride helps to reduce the amount of DHT. Other options include minoxidil and hair supplements such as viviscal.
However these may not reverse your hair loss completely if it is advanced or rapidly progressing, although they will help to slow down the progression. Hair transplant is an option to restore the front hairline. These medications do come with some side effects and it is best to speak to your doctor to understand these better.
