Treating male pattern baldness early can prevent the progression of hair loss without being detected
DALLAS, November 8, 2010 – Recent photos of Prince William’s rapidly thinning hair has lips flapping, and Dr. Bernardino Arocha of Arocha Hair Restoration, an expert in state-of-the-art hair restoration techniques, says that’s a good thing. Celebrities experiencing rapid hair loss typically go to great lengths to stay out of the public spotlight or they hide under hats or “mandanas.” Dr. Arocha says the 28-year-old Prince deserves credit for not letting his male pattern baldness slow him down and hopes the attention is a catalyst for others to open up.
Male pattern baldness affects an estimated 40 million men in the United States. Approximately 25 percent of men begin balding in their early 20s, as was the case with Prince William. In the process, many experience anxiety, low self-esteem and are self-conscious, thinking they are less attractive, less confident or feel old. Less than five percent of respondents to a recent survey by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery said their hair loss doesn’t bother them.
“As enlightened as we are today, some men experiencing hair loss would rather avoid the subject entirely because of their diminished self-esteem,” said Dr. Arocha of Arocha Hair Restoration in Dallas and Houston. “For millions of men, Prince William’s very public hair loss is a welcome conversation starter that can open the door to a range of treatment options they may not be aware of.”
It is usually best to start treatment of male pattern baldness early to prevent the progression to more advanced stages. After a free consultation, Dr. Arocha might encourage patients to consider hair loss medication treatments to halt or even reverse the progression of hair loss. Propecia® and Rogaine® are two medications that can be effective, especially in combination with hair transplantation.
“No treatment is more effective than a patient’s own natural hair, and with today's state-of-the-art hair transplantation techniques, we can maximize the patient’s good looks and achieve results that are totally natural and undetectable,” said Dr. Arocha. “Prince William appears to have nice donor hair available along the sides and back of his scalp, so he is likely a good candidate to have a hair transplant to restore the framing of his face and increase the density of his frontal and mid-scalp areas.”
