Colin Farrell Shows Signs Of A Receding Hairline

colin farrell receding hairline Seven Psychopaths actor Colin Farrell was papped out walking in Los Angeles this week with a female friend, and although he was sporting a fetching trilby hat in certain pictures, his hairline was visible beneath it and appears to be receding somewhat.

At 36, the Dublin-born actor is certainly at the age where pattern hair loss becomes increasingly likely, with 40% of men experiencing noticeable hair loss by the age of 35.

The reason behind gradual balding is male pattern hair loss, the condition that affects 95% of men with hair loss. Pattern hair loss occurs when the androgen DHT (dihydrotestosterone) causes miniaturisation of the follicles on top of the scalp, leading them to produce weaker hairs before ceasing to function altogether.

Catching Out Colin

Of course, not all men go bald, but it also follows that your parents can have thick heads of hair well into their eighties, but you could begin to bald in your teens.

The reason behind this is that people can carry the gene for baldness without expressing it. It is thought that factors such as stress can trigger the onset of the hair loss, meaning that it could begin earlier than it otherwise might have done.

So, how would Colin Farrell prevent his apparent hair loss from continuing? A high strength 12.5% minoxidil cream would be the most effective way of regrowing a receding hairline. Minoxidil is dose dependent, and in our pharmaceutical laboratory we manufacture a wide range of formulations allowing our hair loss specialists to select the optimum combination for your specific case.

Our maximum daily dosage of minoxidil is 18%, which is significantly higher than the 5% available over the counter in your chemist.

However, minoxidil cannot block the action of DHT: this is where Propecia comes in. Like minoxidil, it is licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, and is the only other medication that is clinically proven to treat hair loss.

Propecia is a DHT blocker, and taken consecutively with minoxidil, gives patients the best possible chance of halting hair loss and regrowing hair.

The two medications form the basis of many of our hair loss treatment programmes, but there are many other angles that can be covered in the quest for a healthy head of hair.

From clinical treatments that encourage growth and ensure that the scalp and hair are healthy and free of dandruff and other types of dead cell build up, to the FDA cleared LaserComb which stimulates deep into the scalp, treatment boosters complement the medications and ensure all round hair health.
