Acclaimed director and the mastermind behind the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony Danny Boyle has been busy giving interviews about his latest film, the psychological thriller Trance. Boyle, who has also directed films such as Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire, appeared to be showing signs of hair loss in the form of a prominent receding hairline.
At the age of 56, Boyle is statistically more likely than not to be experiencing noticeable hair loss, although if he wishes to retain his hair and potentially even grow some back, he will need to act soon, as hair loss can only be treated medically if hair follicles are still producing hair, even if this hair is thin and wispy.
A receding hairline is best treated by a combination of the two clinically proven for hair loss medications. The first of these, minoxidil, is produced in the Belgravia pharmacies in a variety of different strengths, with up to a 12.5% minoxidil + azelaic acid cream meaning that a strong daily dose is available.
As the highest strength available at the chemist is 5%, Belgravia provides significantly stronger minoxidil formulations, which have proven particularly effective for treating stubborn hairlines by stimulating new hair growth.
Alongside minoxidil, a second mediation that has been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA (the UK and US medical regulatory bodies respectively) is Propecia. This oral tablet comes in a standard daily dose and works by blocking DHT, a powerful androgen that occurs naturally in the body, which causes hair loss by shrinking follicles atop the scalp making them produce weaker, thinner hair.
Hair Loss Hit
By blocking the cause of male pattern hair loss and helping the scalp follicles grow new hair, these two proven medications are key in any hair loss treatment programme. However, there are many other aspects to a truly comprehensive hair loss treatment. Visiting a clinic every three months for in-depth monitoring allows progress to be charted and any necessary amendments to your medication to be made. Clinical treatment therapy can also help keep scalp and hair in optimum condition.
Busy men like Boyle shouldn’t struggle to add the medications and a few treatment boosters such as the FDA cleared LaserComb into their daily and weekly routines. However, we understand that for some people, visiting London isn’t always an option, and by filling in an online diagnostic form, a remote diagnosis can be made and medication can be posted out to wherever in the world you might be.
