Hair

In the UK, Male Pattern Baldness (or androgenic alopecia) affects almost a third of all men by the time they reach 30. Early signs often include a receding of the hairline just above the forehead, a thinning of hair around the scalp, or both. Hair in these areas will often recede further with age, and although it is very common, hair loss can still have a detrimental effect on confidence and self-esteem.

Help is available in the form of prescription treatments, such as Propecia. In many cases, this medication has demonstrated the capacity to reduce the rate of hair loss, and even encourage new growth.

Facial Hair
Excess Facial Hair (or Hirsutism) can be a sensitive issue, but it is not an uncommon one – up to 3 in 20 women may experience the condition pre-menopause, while up to three quarters of women may see increased facial hair in later life. Excess Facial Hair can be hereditary, caused by a hormone imbalance, or can in some cases be a side effect of medicinal treatment.

Vaniqa is effective in eliminating excess facial hair, and is available on prescription via our secure online consultation service.
