When a man is in his 20s he is often busy with university, partying, dating and finding a job. By his 30s, his schedule is usually taken up with moving up the career ladder, buying a house, settling down and starting a family. While these are busy times, a large majority of men will start to develop the early stages of Male Pattern Baldness while they are in their 20s or 30s. By the age of 35, 2 in 5 men will be suffering from hair loss.
It is normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day; any more and it is time to take action if you want to prevent baldness. The first signs are often thinning hair and a receding hairline. While some men will bald quicker than others, it is worth having a consultation with a specialist to discuss how the hair loss will progress and to give you the chance to consider how hair loss treatments can help.
Why Start Treatment If I Still Have Hair?
If you are not comfortable with the bald look, and want to retain your locks, then by taking early action you will ensure that treatment can work as effectively as possible.
There are two products that have shown, in large scale clinical trials, to prevent hair loss and promote re-growth. Minoxidil and Propecia (finasteride 1mg) produce the best results when administered as part of a tailored treatment programme and used alongside the correct hair growth boosters. These hair loss treatments work by reducing the effects of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the hormone that causes Male Pattern Baldness and Female Pattern Hair Loss, and stimulating the hair follicles to boost regrowth.
If you are concerned about hair loss, the best thing to do is see a specialist who will diagnose the condition and discuss your suitability for hair loss treatments. Belgravia offers free consultations at its London-based centre or via the website. To book an appointment, just call 020 7730 6666 or message the centre.
