How Did Nicolas Cage Beat Hair Loss?

Hollywood star Nicolas Cage’s thinning hair has attracted the attention of celebrity watchers and the media in recent years, and now it seems that he may have invested in a treatment for his hair loss.

According to the Daily Mail, Cage was seen sporting, “a suspiciously full head of hair,” at the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, Drive Angry 3D. This was, the newspaper said, in stark contrast to the thinning hair displayed at the Toronto Film Festival two years earlier. The report went on to comment on “suspicious shading around [Cage’s] hairline”.

Thinning hair

The veteran 45 year-old actor, who once starred in the film Face Off as an undercover FBI agent who undergoes a face transplant to assume the identity of his criminal nemesis, had a full head of youthful locks throughout the early years of his career. But as the years and film roles passed by, filmgoers have become accustomed to seeing his hairline recede ever backwards.

A prime example of how even the rich and famous aren’t exempt from the onset of male pattern baldness, Cage has previously been subject to speculation over whether he has ever sought a hair loss treatment.

The Daily Mail report postulates that Cage has had a hair transplant, but the hair loss experts at the Belgravia Centre believe Cage’s fuller head of hair is more likely to be the result of a professional hair loss treatment course.

If Cage has indeed undergone a hair loss treatment he would join a long line of big name Hollywood actors and celebrities who have also been reported as taking measures to restore their thinning hair. John Travolta, Mel Gibson, Brendan Frasier and Gordon Ramsay have all featured in speculative reports of this nature.

What is male pattern baldness?

Male pattern baldness, or Androgenetic Alopecia, is a common hair loss condition amongst men of Nicolas Cage’s age. The condition is genetic and is passed down the family line via shared genes which carry a predisposition to hair loss.

When genetic hair loss occurs, testosterone within the body is converted to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which then inhibits the growth of hair follicles, resulting in hair loss and, potentially, baldness. Though visible signs of the condition are more common in middle-aged men, it can begin in the early twenties, leading to a receding hairline and bald patches.

As has Cage, many people will experience considerable amounts of regrowth from the use of the correct combination of hair loss treatments. To see the kind of results that have been achieved from many men, each with different a pattern of hair loss, view Belgravia’s hair loss success stories – updated on a daily basis.
