Great Gatsby Actor Tobey Maguire Shows Signs Of Hair Loss

toby maguire thinning hair hair loss great gatsbyYou will know him as the star of the million dollar movie franchise Spider-Man, and Tobey Maguire also has a starring role in this year’s much hyped adaptation of The Great Gatsby. At the age of 37, you might think that Maguire needn’t be concerned about hair loss, but like many men in their twenties and thirties, he may be experiencing the onset of genetic balding.

Pictured out in the sunshine with his young family, Maguire’s hairline appeared to be receding, and an overall thinning of hair seems to have taken place since he began his role as Peter Parker in Spider-Man over ten years ago.

Time For A Great Hatsby?

A lot of men may feel that balding is inevitable, a sign of ageing. If you’re able to accept your hair loss, then there is no issue, however we see a lot of men who have noticed a dip in their confidence and other negative side effects since their hair has receded or thinned, and many are unaware that this loss can be reversed with hair loss treatments and hair regrown.

Male pattern hair loss, which occurs when the gene for balding is passed down from your family tree, is extremely common, and can be expressed at any point after puberty. If no action is taken, male pattern baldness can eventually cause all the hair atop the scalp to shed completely, but if a clinically proven hair loss treatment plan is put into place before this point, there is every chance that hair density in thinning areas can be increased, and a receding hairline regrown.

Propecia is an oral medication, proven for hair loss, that blocks the action of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) a powerful androgen that attacks scalp follicles in men with the male pattern baldness gene. DHT causes miniaturisation of the follicles, whereby weaker, wispy, baby-like hair takes the place of thick healthy locks. As soon as DHT is blocked, the scalp can begin the recovery process, and hair will begin to grow back.

Superhero Hair Regrowth

However, hair usually needs a helping hand to return to its previous luster, especially when a receding hairline has developed. This is when a second proven medication, minoxidil, can be useful. Minoxidil stimulates the follicle, and encourages it to produce new hair. It is a dose-dependent medication, meaning that the 5% solution available over the counter to men often isn’t sufficient to treat many cases of hair loss efficiently.

To maximise your results, a combined daily dose of up to 18% can be achieved with Belgravia Pharmacy minoxidil. For patches of particularly thin hair loss, or areas that haven’t responded well to treatment in the past, our high strength minoxidil cream may provide previously untreatable hair loss with the stimulation it needs to regrow. As well as devising the ideal strength of minoxidil for the individual patient, an experienced hair loss expert can choose certain added ingredients for the formulation that appear to mimic the affects of Propecia.

A Whole Web Of Treatments

After devising the ideal course of medication for the patient, a hair loss specialist will integrate this into a wider hair loss treatment programme, which uses a variety of techniques including various hair growth boosters to nurture hair and ensure that regrowth is consistently healthy and that it occurs in the fastest time possible.
