A new survey of 1,500 men by One Poll has revealed that one in seven men with hair loss feel it has affected their relationship. It was also revealed that a third of men dealing with hair loss found that it affected their confidence, with one in ten men saying that they would give up a year of their life for a full head of hair, and a quarter were willing to waive a pay rise.
The Numbers Add Up
These statistics may seem quite surprising, but the psychological effect of hair loss in men is becoming increasingly accepted as a real issue that needs to be considered. By raising awareness of how hair loss can be tackled, we can help to prevent the feelings of hopelessness that many men experiencing hair loss feel when they think baldness cannot be prevented.
We see many patients at Belgravia who assume that a hair transplant is the only option when it comes to addressing their thinning hair. However, a medically proven hair loss treatment plan that contains medication that has been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA to treat male pattern hair loss.
Unless the area of scalp that you wish to treat has become completely shiny and bald, a hair transplant is often unnecessary. Any good transplant surgeon would recommend that men try hair loss medication for a minimum of six months before a surgical procedure, and this can often save patients the stress of an operation and the much higher cost.
Before You Start To Worry…
The first medication that men can take to halt hair loss is Propecia, an oral tablet that blocks the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, which joins with testosterone to form the powerful androgen DHT. This hormone causes follicular miniaturisation atop the scalp, which leads to thin, wispy baby-like hair being produced.
Propecia can be used alongside the only other proven hair loss treatment available, minoxidil. This dose dependent topical liquid or high strength minoxidil cream works by stimulating new growth in the hair follicle, and in the experience of our hair loss specialists, it can be highly effective at treating a receding hairline.
These two hair loss medications can halt hair loss and regrow hair, but there are a number of treatment boosters that keep hair healthy and strong, including the nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics, and the FDA cleared LaserComb. So, before becoming stressed and worried about your hair loss and the possible need for a hair transplant, try the medical approach to preventing baldness.
