Javier Mascherano’s Receding Hairline Reaches Rooney Proportions

javier mascherano hair lossMany of our clients in their 20’s who come to us with concerns about their hair loss are able to address the problem via a hair loss treatment programme before it becomes too established, just look at the ages on our hair loss success stories.

One man in his twenties who appears to be experiencing a receding hairline that would require immediate treatment to prevent it becoming untreatable medically is Argentinian footballer Javier Mascherano, the 29 year old FC Barcelona star. What can he do to prevent his hair going bald in the manner of fellow footballer Wayne Rooney?

Own Goal?

A receding hairline, in the common ‘widow’s peak’ pattern is clearly visible in recent photos of the central defender. The most effective means of treating this manner of hair loss is a combined treatment programme built around a high strength minoxidil + azelaic acid cream.

Minoxidil is one of two clinically proven hair loss treatments licensed by the MHRA, the UK’s medical regulatory body, and the FDA, its Stateside equivalent. As minoxidil is dose-dependent, the higher the daily percentage (we offer up to 18%), the more stubborn the hair loss is that it can treat.

Not only can minoxidil regrow hair, it can also halt the rate of loss. Ingredients can be added which appear to enhance this particular function of the minoxidil; these include the above mentioned azelaic acid, which inhibits the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, which joins with testosterone to create the powerful androgen DHT. DHT causes scalp follicles to shrink in genetically predisposed people, causing the most common male hair loss condition, pattern hair loss, which affects 95% of men dealing with hair loss. As well as azelaic acid, the added ingredients MPG (Medroxyprogesterone) and caffeine appear to block the affects of DHT when applied locally.

Get Top Of The Hair League

A hair loss specialist, during your free initial consultation or by looking at your online diagnostic form for patients who can’t visit our London clinics, will be able to establish what strength of minoxidil will best suit you, and what added ingredients might be of benefit. It is also likely that the other clinically approved hair loss medication, Propecia, can be added to the treatment programme alongside minoxidil. Propecia is a DHT blocker, and is taken orally in tablet form.  Together, the two treatments have formed the basis of thousands of successful hair loss treatment programmes for men of all hair types and degrees of hair loss.

So, our Olympic gold medalist footballer Javier Mascherano would be wise to consider a hair loss treatment programme centered around these two medications to prevent him from going bald. However, there are many other key aspects that make a Belgravia Centre programme so comprehensive. From our regular check-ups where before and during photos are compared in detail, to our nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics which ensures that hair is growing back in its best possible condition, every possible angle is covered to help regrow hair as quickly and as thoroughly as possible.
