Celebrity Hair Loss Report: Footballer, Pablo Zabaleta

In our first Celebrity Hair Loss Report we look at the likely hair loss condition, causes and possible treatments for Argentinian footballer, Pablo Zabaleta as, whilst the right-back’s 2014 World Cup performance was outstanding, sadly his hair wasn’t playing ball.

Footballer Pablo Zabaleta's signs of Male Pattern Baldness have been visible since around 2008

Causes of Zabaleta’s Hair Loss

Zabaleta displays typical signs of Male Pattern Baldness (MPB). The Manchester City player shows classic thinning around the crown area, general thinning on top and a receding hairline. MPB is a hereditary condition also known as androgenic alopecia, which is the most common form of hair loss in both men and women.

Onset of Hair Loss and History

Looking back through Zabaleta’s career, the defender seems to have started showing signs of hair loss around 2008, the year he signed for Manchester City FC, when the hair on the top of his head and around his temples started to look thinner.

Male pattern hair loss is known to sometimes be triggered by stress so could his Premiership move have been a contributing factor? There is a considerable amount of pressure on top flight footballers today so, whilst players like Zabaleta may get paid a fortune to work in such a stressful industry, if they are already pre-disposed to genetic hair loss, their job could well accelerate their condition.

An Example of Male Pattern Baldness, Successfully Treated by The Belgravia Centre

Since joining the Premier League his hair loss has progressed rapidly, with noticeable deterioration in the quality of his hair. The hairs on the top of his head now appear much wispier – a result of the existing hair becoming weaker and more brittle due to constant attack from the hormone DHT which causes male pattern hair loss.

Best Treatment for Zabaleta

Whilst various types of hair loss treatments are available, a minoxidil cream would probably be particularly effective for Zabaleta’s pattern and stage of hair loss in order to target the stubborn areas of thinning. Propecia would also be advised, to assist in stabilising his overall hair loss and help increase density. Hair Growth Boosters such as the LaserComb and Hair Vitalics supplement could also be used to amplify Zabaleta’s response as his condition appears to be quite aggressive.

Likely Outcome if Zabaleta Sought Treatment

As Zabaleta still has a fair coverage of thin hair as opposed to baldness, he could respond well to the correct combination of preventative treatments. Followed properly, this should stabilise his hair loss and promote regrowth in areas that are currently thinning.

The time-frame for regrowth can vary from person to person as factors such as the severity of their condition, their general health and lifestyle all contribute to how long it can take for treatments to take effect. He would generally expect to see results within the first 3 to 6 months.
