A receding hairline is one of the most feared phenotypes to anyone these days as all over the world, people are obsessed with the physique of hair as a basic element of their beauty. It is far more than a bundle of fiber, it is a major factor of the glory they are expressing in terms of style and personality. Receding hairline is the process in which the hair that forms the frame of the edge of the forelock starts to thin out as the follicles stop to produce a further healthy one and replace that is lost leading to moving the line backward.
There could be several reasons for a receding hairline. The most important is a type of alopecia known as the frontal fibrosing alopecia damaging the follicles by an immune-mediated process that destroys the follicular stem cells to an extent that five inches can be lost by this. Hereditary factors play a major role also, if you have a family history of poor hair growth and baldness the chances of receding line increase. Next up is the hormonal impact on its growth for both males and females. As the shaft gets thinned out in post-menopausal women and a hormone in males known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) also reduces its bulk and both can cause a receding hairline. The most feared complication of many drugs is promotion of baldness including some antibiotics, oral contraceptives and weight loss drugs, etc.
Talking about the treatment of a receding hairline further we can safely divide this into two categories first being non-surgical and the other being the surgical treatment. Well, who wouldn’t want their curls to be back to normal with the same thickness and growth to the one they had previously they had merely just too even overcome their lack of confidence and psychosocial depression that this panic-stricken replacement has done to their lives. Shining some light on the medical treatment; Minoxidil is the first in line that stimulates the follicles for growth and increasing the density. If someone is suffering from an autoimmune disorder a prescribed dose of corticosteroid reduces the inflammation and scarring and restoring the hairline. Finasteride a 5 alpha-reductase inhibitor is also in the pipeline for treating this condition and has some promising outcomes however some degree of monitoring is required to prevent certain side effects. Coming into the surgical domain we have certain options here also first being the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy along with stromal vascular fraction (SVF). This involves using patients’ own blood extracting platelet-rich plasma having all the essential growth factors and injecting them in the scalp to promote growth; this occurs under sessions and has minimal side effects as patients’ own blood is used. SVF involves taking the fat cells of the patient, centrifuging them, and injecting them into the scalp as these are known to contain stem cells that help regrow hair and have shown to give some amazing results.
The other surgical option for the treatment of receding hairline is the reconstruction of a new one. This uses two techniques one being the punch technique taking 3 to 5 mm punches from the parietal and occipital area and then suturing them to the donor site. However, this approach causes a shabby, sparse tuft along with small pale grafts that stand unnaturally and prominently. Strip grafting is the other technique used for the surgical approach which takes a strip from the parieto-occipital area and then using it to reconstruct the frontal area, it is mostly done in a two-staged procedure reconstructing one side at a time. With the advent of these amazing technologies and medicine receding hairline is no longer something to worry about.
