Matt Damon Goes Bald To Play The Hero Of New Movie Elysium

elysium matt damon bald head hair lossHe’s one of the biggest names in Hollywood and has played more action roles than we can remember, and Matt Damon will shortly return to our screens in new futuristic thriller Elysium. The sci-fi movie sees Damon invade a utopian society of rich members who have abandoned earth and left its poorer inhabitants for dead.

Hair Loss For Heroes

We recently charted Matt Damon’s hair loss throughout his career in a blog entry, and it’s interesting that Damon is playing the role of a good guy, albeit a very buff and tattooed one, with a bald head, a look usually reserved for the baddies in films. Director Neill Blomkamp (who is responsible for sci-fi flick District 9) explained that Damon plays a character who “just grew up on the wrong side of the tracks but isn’t a bad guy”.

Heavily tattooed and very muscly, Damon plays the role of a man who has grown up in a gang environment, which potentially explains the decision to go with a bald head for the character as a recent study showed bald men were perceived as more manly. However, should he find that regrowing his already thinning hair now that filming has finished is proving difficult, a hair loss treatment plan may be in order to prevent baldness.

Based on media appearances this year and last, Damon is experiencing male pattern balding, something not unusual for men in their forties, with 40% of men at the age of 35 experiencing noticeable hair loss, increasing to 65% at the age of 60. Happily, should Damon choose to go for a slightly softer role next time around, there’s a medically proven way to treat his hair loss with a hair loss treatment programme.

Baldness Treatment For The Future

There are two clinically proven medications available for the treatment of hair loss. The first of these, Propecia, works by blocking the androgen which causes pattern hair loss in the first place by causing
follicles atop the scalp to shrink and produce weaker hair: DHT.

The second medication, minoxidil, is also licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA as a hair loss treatment, which is an assurance that the two medications do what they say they will in the vast majority of cases, something our before and during treatment photos are testament to.

However, whilst Propecia comes in a standard daily dose, minoxidil can be varied with regards to strength and certain ingredients can be added which appear to block DHT when applied locally. This means that unlike the minoxidil available at the chemist, our high strength minoxidil + azelaic acid cream is capable of tackling even stubborn cases of hair loss, proving particularly effective for a receding hairline.

So, should Matt decide to enter rom-com territory, he can do so safe in the knowledge that his tough guy bald head could potentially be transformed into thick, healthy locks where thinning areas once were, providing that the areas in question aren’t completely bald and shiny. Proven medication combined with suitable treatment boosters selected by a hair loss specialist will ensure that visible progress is made in the shortest time possible.
