Is Andy Murray Having Hair Loss Treatment For His Hairline?

andy murray hair lossIn July last year The Belgravia Centre reported on tennis star Andy Murray’s apparently receding hair line. The 25 year old, who recently lost out on the Australian Open title to Novac Djokovic, seemed to be sporting thicker hair, with an improved hairline compared to last year. Is it possible that the world number 3 has been spending some of his winnings on medically regrowing his hair loss?

A Hair Growth Personal Best?

The Olympic gold medalist is not the only man in his 20’s potentially dealing with the onset of pattern hair loss. If you carry the genes for male pattern balding, treatment will be necessary to prevent its onset, which can occur at any point after puberty. Even if both your parents retain thick, non-receding heads of hair into their 80’s, genes can come from further afield in our family tree, so it’s worth being diligent and keeping an eye on your hairline using photographs.

If you do notice that hair is beginning to recede, a clinically proven hair loss treatment programme can address even a slight difference in hair density or hairline and regrow hair, therefore preventing the situation from noticeably worsening. The key to treating hair loss is acting before areas become bald and shiny, as at this point a costly surgical hair transplant procedure may become the only option.

Advantage Murray

Happily though, if you can see thin, wispy hairs in your thinning area, a high strength minoxidil cream can be exceedingly effective at regrowing a thicker, healthier hairline when applied directly to areas of loss.

A hair loss specialist can determine the ideal combination of twice daily minoxidil, and with up to an 18% daily dose available, The Belgravia Centre is confident that even the most stubborn patches of hair loss can be dealt with in this manner providing a small amount of hair remains to begin with.

An Open Approach

Our hair regrowth success stories speak for themselves with regards to this type of treatment, and although we don’t know why exactly minoxidil works so well, we do know that its results as a hair loss treatment in extensive clinical trials led to it being licensed by the MHRA, the UK’s medical regulatory body and approved by the FDA, its US equivalent.

Alongside minoxidil, the only other clinically proven hair loss treatment is the oral medication Propecia. Propecia is great for improving overall thickness of hair, as it blocks DHT, the androgen that attacks scalp follicles on the top of the head in genetically predisposed men. These two medications form the basis of many successful tailored hair loss treatment programmes that include hair growth boosters on top of medication, which combine with regular check-ups and support to form a comprehensive approach to treating hair loss.
