Questions cannot be sent to a particular consultant.

The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to understand what is causing the hair-loss. A Dermatologist that specialises in hair-loss conditions can help with that. If the cause is androgenetic alopecia (male-pattern balding), then the two methods clinically proven to prevent further hair-loss, halt hair-loss, or recover hair already lost, are oral Finasteride, and topical Minoxidil. Both treatments though are taken on an ongoing basis. It is important to have baseline clinical photographs prior to starting treatment, to measure that the treatment is effective. You should speak with a Dermatologist to understand any potential risks and side-effects with both treatment options.
