Bradley Cooper – Undergoing Hair Loss Treatment?

Bradley Cooper Receding The Beglravia Centre39 year-old Hollywood star Bradley Cooper is in the news headlines again, but not for the usual reason. Having been nominated for BAFTA for his role in American Hustle, and with an Oscar decision still pending, the natural assumption is that the media should be focusing on his acting success.

Instead the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ (as voted by People Magazine readers) is the subject of speculation about his hair and potential early signs of balding.

Bradley Cooper worried about receding hairline?

In June 2013 Cooper won the ‘World’s Best Hair Award’, but already there were questions about his hairline. Now friends of Cooper suggest that he is seeking hair loss treatment because he is “so anxious about his receding hairline”.

Unlike many other Hollywood stars however, Cooper has apparently decided not to take a surgical approach to his hair loss. Several high profile stars have chosen to undergo costly hair transplant surgery with mixed results (Wayne Rooney and James Nesbitt for instance), but Cooper has apparently opted instead for the oral medication Propecia.

Male Pattern Baldness and Propecia

Male Pattern Baldness is caused by a genetic predisposition that sees testosterone converted into a secondary compound called DHT, which attacks the hair follicles in the scalp causing them to shrink and the attached hairs to fall out. Once the follicle has shrunk, new growth is inhibited leading to the development of a characteristic bald patch, or a receding hairline.

Propecia works by blocking the formation of DHT, thereby preventing its effect on the hair follicles and reducing loss. Other aspects of the treatment plan can then tackle regrowth potential.

A clinically proven treatment for Male Pattern Baldness, Propecia should be prescribed at the correct strength by a hair loss expert as part of a holistic treatment plan.

According to sources, Bradley Cooper has been using Propecia for a few years after discovering his family has a history of hair loss. Neither the actor nor any of his publicity team have confirmed or denied this rumour.

The benefits of a non-surgical approach

By taking a non-surgical approach to treating hair loss, men like Bradley Cooper can achieve hair regrowth results with a fraction of the discomfort associated with transplant surgery.

Bradley Cooper is (understandably) playing it cool when it comes to discussing his potential hair loss situation. However by electing to undergo a treatment plan early, men like Cooper can often nip Male Pattern Baldness in the bud before it becomes noticeable.
