Losing Hair No.5 In Signs You’re Over The Hill

old man confusedA survey of 2,000 people has found that hair loss is high on the list of signs that you’re “over the hill”. A spokesman for Engage Mutual, which conducted the study, said: ‘Ageing is a natural process and we can all recognise physical and attitudinal changes in ourselves as we get older.

“What is interesting is the general expectation across age groups that someone in the ‘older’ age bracket will look and behave in a particular way,” they added. Despite this, eight out of 10 surveyed believed that you were only as old as you feel.

Signs of Ageing

Other supposed signs that you’re “old” include “groaning when you bend down,” “struggling to use technology,” and “falling asleep after one glass of wine”. Whilst Belgravia is unable to help with the majority of these woes and worries, hair loss is something that can be effectively treated.

For both men and women, genetic hair loss can be a source of distress, and a surprising amount of people are unaware that there are proven medications available that can halt hair loss and regrow thinning hair. The first of these, minoxidil, works by stimulating hair regrowth and can be used by both men and women. It comes in the form of a liquid or extra-strength minoxidil cream, and is applied topically twice a day in a matter of seconds.

Keeping Your Hair On

The second medication that has also been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA is Propecia. This tablet works by blocking DHT, a powerful androgen hormone that causes follicular miniaturisation atop the scalp, which leads to thinner, weaker hair being produced.

Propecia is only available to men, so Belgravia also combine certain added ingredients in their minoxidil formulations which appear to block DHT when applied locally, which women can use.

At Belgravia, proven medication is combined with a variety of treatment boosters that include the FDA cleared LaserComb for a truly comprehensive approach to hair regrowth and care. Our before and during treatment photographs on our success story blog give an indication of the results that can be achieved. So, whilst Belgravia can’t stop you tuning into Radio 2 or driving slowly, we can help you regrow thinning hair.
