Prevention is better than cure, so the saying goes. And when it comes to hair loss, the same advice applies. The rate at which our hair grows is dependent on the state of the hair follicles. Unfortunately the majority of men will suffer from the effects of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone which attacks the follicles. Hair growth slows down and eventually stops. The age at which this happens varies considerably and a man can be in his teens, 20s, 30s or older when the hair starts to thin and the hairline starts to recede.
If a man decides he wants to maintain his hair growth and prevent Male Pattern Baldness, then there are two key factors to doing this successfully if he does not wish to resort to surgery.
1. Early Diagnosis
It is possible to treat Male Pattern Baldness in its early or mid-stages. Once the condition is advanced and a man is completely bald, the damage to the follicles is permanent and cannot be reversed through the use of non-surgical treatments.
2. Individualised Treatment
There are million and one hair loss products available, but if you want to see the best results, it is recommended that you see a specialist who will be able to prescribe a treatment programme tailored to your requirements. At the Belgravia Centre, most of the hair loss treatment programmes are based around minoxidil and Propecia. These are the only two products to have undergone large scale clinical trials and shown sufficient evidence to be effective in stabilising hair loss and restoring lost hair.
Many men experience the best results when a high strength minoxidil treatment is complimented by a course of Propecia tablets. Propecia is the single most effective treatment for male hair loss. In clinical trials between 70 and 90% of men using Propecia experienced hair loss stabilisation or hair regrowth. Consultants at the Belgravia Centre have found that administering the correct Minoxidil product with a suitable hair growth booster can enhance Propecia’s efficacy.
With all the marketing hype about hair loss products, it can be difficult to be a discerning consumer, but rest assured thousands of men and women successfully manage genetic hair loss everyday.
