A leading expert on hair loss has said that hair cloning “should be available within three years”. Dr Akshay Batra, an Indian trichologist working in Dubai, believes that scientific developments mean that baldness will soon be cured in one operation and hair loss will be confined to the history books. The technique that Dr Batra is referring to involves removing a single strand of hair from the scalp and multiplying it into thousands of hair follicles that are reinserted into the scalp. “Initial results are good. This means that no man will ever be bald again,” says Dr Batra, “It should be out within three years”.
But for men who are already starting to notice a receding hairline and thinning on the crown, three years could be too long to wait. Hair loss can be highly distressing. Many men go with the flow and opt for the semi-bald look or shave their head and get used to having nothing up top. But some men do not feel comfortable with hair loss and want to maintain their hair. As Dr Batra explains, “Baldness has huge social and emotional implications. It should not be so, but people tend to suffer loss of self-esteem.”
So until science comes up with the holy grail of a hair loss cure-all, many men will continue to keep baldness at bay with the help of two non-surgical hair loss treatments. Minoxidil and Propecia can produce optimum re-growth when tailored to the individual and administered alongside the correct hair growth booster. The Belgravia Centre has a number of minoxidil options available which are quick and easy to apply and help to increase hair growth. Propecia is the single most effective treatment for male hair loss and compliments these Minoxidil formulas incredibly well.
