TV anchorwoman Anne Trujillo of Channel 7 in Denver, Colorado has taken the step of revealing her hair loss condition live on social media. Trujillo’s action followed several calls from viewers who were concerned by her appearance on the TV news and wondering if she was experiencing a significant health issue.
By that time Trujillo had already noticed the hair loss herself, saying that she found hair “everywhere” she looked. Anne recalls that her fears peaked when on holiday in Spain: “There I was, on this great vacation, looking at the beautiful white sheets on the bed, with black hair on them,” she said.
Finally a diagnosis is reached
Eventually, hair loss drove Trujillo to visit her doctor, who quickly ruled out lupus thyroid problems and cancer – much to her relief. However, the doctor also became convinced that the hair loss had been triggered by a traumatic event and was a side effect of emotional stress.
Eventually a biopsy was made of Anne’s scalp tissue, identifying the cause of her hair loss – Alopecia Areata. Since the diagnosis was delivered, Trujillo has instead taken to wearing hair extensions to mask her bald patches after being told her hair would “never” grow back.
Misinformation may lead to further hair loss
Treating baldness brought on by Alopecia Areata is notoriously difficult but not, as Anne Trujillo’s doctors claimed, completely impossible. Here at The Belgravia Centre we have successfully treated many clients experiencing hair loss through Alopecia Areata.
Instead of taking advantage of a specialist hair regrowth treatment plan, Anne Trujillo has opted to have hair extensions fitted, an action which could further compromise her unaffected hair. Celebrities including Naomi Campbell and Rihanna have experienced hair loss through the use of extensions, due to a condition known as Traction Alopecia.
Treatment not disguise
Here at The Belgravia Centre, our personalised hair loss treatment plans include the use of custom medical formulations designed to treat stubborn cases of hair loss. In Anne Trujillo’s case (depending on a full diagnosis) one of our extra strength 10% Minoxidil medications which also contain Azelaic Acid to stimulate dormant hair follicles and promote regrowth may be required.
Best of all for Anne, The Belgravia Centre offers a global mail service, allowing our clients to take advantage of our custom treatment plans wherever they may be in the world. Even the initial diagnosis can be done from the comfort of our client’s home via the internet, saving a transatlantic flight to visit our clinic in London!
