PRINCE HARRY WILL RECEIVE BALDNESS TREATMENT IN LONDON

Baldness is a family affair among the Windsor family… At least among its male members. Prince Harry, aged 35, received treatment for hair loss at a prestigious London clinic. This was reported in The Sun on Saturday, February 8th.

The facility that provided care to the Prince is one of the most prestigious in the world. It is known for receiving extremely privileged patients, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the British tabloid, the Duke of Sussex has seen the bald area of his skull double since his marriage to Meghan Markle between May 2018 and May 2019. Preparing for the big day, the birth of little Archie or pressure from his wife? Speculation is running high to explain the rapid hair loss of Prince William’s brother.

A hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Asim Shahmalak, had fun creating a simulation image of Prince Harry’s hair when he turns 50.
“It began with Prince Philip and was passed on to Prince Charles and his sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. Let’s hope baby Archie doesn’t inherit it either!”, commented the doctor.

“Harry’s baldness was slower to take off, but now he’s catching up with his brother quickly, especially in the crown area,” he added. Prince William, who has been battling baldness since his early twenties, finally opted for a full head shave in January last year. “Harry’s baldness was slower to take off, but now he’s catching up with his brother quickly, especially in the crown area,” he added.

“About 30% of men experience some form of hair loss around Harry’s age – so it’s not unusual, especially if you have a baldness gene in the family,” Dr Asim Shahmalak said.

Baldness is a predominantly male phenomenon. Hair loss appears on average between the ages of 20 and 35, but can begin later.

What are the causes of baldness?

The main cause of baldness is an excess of male hormones (androgenic alopecia). This excess is hereditary: if your father is bald, you will most likely be bald. In fact, the male hormones will accelerate the hair’s life cycle, making it fall out faster. Other causes may also be involved. For example, constant stress or prolonged anxiety can contribute to hair loss. An unbalanced diet, deficient in certain vitamins (H, B6, etc.), may also be involved. Also be careful with shampoos that are too aggressive for the scalp or frequent hair dyeing.

Certain medications can also cause significant hair loss (amphetamines, anticoagulants, etc.). Read the list of side effects on the package leaflets.

Hair loss treatments

Treatment depends of course on the cause. When hair loss is due to an external agent (medication, vitamin deficiency… ), it will be easily resolved. On the other hand, when baldness is due to an excess of hormones, specific techniques, medication, anti-hair loss products or grafting must be used.

Medication

There are some medications that seem to be effective against baldness. In all cases, the earlier hair loss is detected, the more effective the treatment will be. The most commonly used treatments are those based on minoxidil. In fact, this product slows down hair loss and sometimes even causes regrowth. It exists in the form of a lotion to be applied twice a day. The treatment must be followed “for life”: once started, it should not be stopped if you want to keep the benefit. Other effective treatments come in tablet form. In all cases, you should of course consult a doctor. It is important to know that these treatments do not necessarily work for all patients and that certain allergies or side effects are sometimes to be feared. In addition, their price remains quite high.

The grafts

In addition to medication, one of the most effective treatments is still transplantation. There are several types of transplants, depending on the case. In general, the technique used is micrografting. This involves taking small pieces of skin containing hair (from the nape of the neck, for example) and reimplanting them on the bald area. The procedure takes two to three hours under local anaesthesia and can be repeated up to three or four times (at least three months apart) depending on the width of the area to be covered. The advantage is that the hair is natural and there is no treatment to follow. The disadvantage is of course the price, which amounts to a few tens of thousands of francs. Instead of one’s own hair, one can have implants, which are very similar to real hair. In this case, the price is a little lower but there is a risk of rejection.

Another solution: wigs or hairpieces. Manufacturing and fitting techniques have improved greatly. These artifices are now very hard to detect and do not fly away at the slightest gust of wind. They are a good solution if you do not wish to undergo treatment or surgery.

Finally, beware of miracle products advertised in magazines. These products generally have no scientific basis and can cause you to lose a lot of money in addition to your hair.

Finally I think our prince is so handsome in spite of everything.
