The answer to this question is of course yes; women look for far more in a life partner than just a full head of hair. The question is however is, do women find men who lack confidence and self esteem attractive? The answer in most cases is no.
It is proven that when it comes to dating, women expect men to make the first move, but with fears of rejection often putting them off, who knows how many Romeos have not met their Juliets because of a lack of confidence caused by something like a receding hairline…
Male hair loss, otherwise known as Androgenic Alopecia or male pattern baldness, affects 25 percent of men by age 30, and two thirds by age 60. It usually begins with a receding hairline, followed by a thinning of the hair on top of the head. The two balding areas then eventually meet to form a typical U-shape around the back and sides of the head.
Hair loss is hereditary, and men who acquire the gene produce an enzyme caled 5-alpha reductase, which turns the hormone ‘testosterone’ into an androgen called dihydrotestosterone’ (DHT). This attacks the hair follicles and causes them to shrink, eventually leading to baldness.
If you’re one of the many men who currently suffer from this condition, chances are you’ve already done a search on Google and been presented with an overwhelming amount of treatments and products available out there – but it may come as some surprise to you that only two medications have been medically licensed by the Medicines and Healthcare Product Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and are clinically proven to stabilise and reverse hair loss effectively and safely; these are called Propecia and Minoxidil.
Propecia is an ‘anti-androgen’ that stops the production of DHT around the hair follicles by inhibiting 5-alpha reductase (the rogue enzyme mentioned before). Minoxidil increases the blood supply to the necessary areas, essentially ‘feeding’ the hair follicles and encouraging healthy hair growth. Combining the two treatments with various hair growth boosters has been found by Belgravia’s highly experienced trichologists to vastly improve the effectiveness of the ‘primary’ medications (Propecia and Minoxidil). You can see the kind of results that so many users of these treatment combinations experience by viewing our hair loss success stories.
The Belgravia Centre bases its individual treatment programmes around these two key ingredients, but they won’t just pop a pot of pills in your hand and send you on your way. Patients are encouraged to update the clinic with their progress either through visits, or by phone or email, and although quarterly checkups are advised, patients are free to book appointments as frequently as possible and at their own convenience . Failing that, a trichologist is always at hand at the Belgravia to answer any queries over the phone or via the internet.
If a lack of self confidence has held you back for too long now, why not give us a call on 020 7730 6666. We are open 7 days a week with late nights Monday to Thursday. You can also have a consultation via the website by completing the online diagnostic form for a home-use treatment course and a treatment advisor will be in touch soon.
