Last weekend a new science fiction film was released. Surrogates is set in a futuristic world where people choose to live as ‘operators’ in the safety of their own homes and send out a perfect looking ‘surrogate’ robot version of themselves to face the real world. The film explores the fear that many people have of growing old and looking old, including hair loss. The film’s protagonist, an FBI agent investigating the murder of the son who invented surrogates, is played by Bruce Willis; tellingly, his ‘operator’ is bald and his robot looks much younger and has a full head of hair.
While Willis’ surrogate version looks slightly scary, there is a way to tackle to baldness that doesn’t produce that plastic look. For the majority of men, genetic hair loss will be a reality at some point in their lives. But if the condition is spotted early enough then it can be tackled using proven hair loss treatments. The effect can vary from a cessation of hair loss to re-growth that looks natural.
In real-life, Willis seems content being bald and has been quoted as saying, “Hair loss is God’s way of telling me I’m human”. But this does not mean that every man should or will feel the same way. For many men, losing hair can be a distressing experience. And just as a man has the right to go for the bald look, so too a man should have the option of maintaining his locks.
Hair loss can be successfully treated without the use of plastic surgery. Take a look at one of Belgravia clients and follow video footage of a hair loss treatment programme.
