London, UK (PRWEB) May 22, 2007
On Thursday of last week Jonny Harris of the Belgravia Hair Loss Centre was interviewed by Sky News, Channel 5 and the Guardian Newspaper about the hype that had been circulating regarding discoveries in America of a gene that could possibly help to replace lost hair in bald men. Scientists have proven for the first time when testing on mice that it is possible to create entirely new follicles from which hairs can be grown, meaning it may be possible to replace hair follicles that have become dysfunctional in humans.
Reports claim it will be 10 years before we can even begin to consider this 'baldness cure' becoming available, but what kind of a difference will it really make if and when it does come about?
As you will see in David Teather's Guardian newspaper article following his interview with Belgravia Centre director Jonny Harris; he explained how Harris was flinching with annoyance when he looked at a statement in an article ripped out of a newspaper. The statement read, 'finally, a baldness cure that actually works'. Being a hair loss expert, Harris understands that this statement is highly misleading to the general hair loss sufferer as it gives the impression that there is currently no hope - something that couldn't be further from the truth!
Something that most people don't know is that there are in fact a number of cures for hair loss available already, although the only thing that could be disguised as a cure to 'baldness' at present is non-surgical hair replacement, better known as a toupee. So you may ask what the difference between hair loss and baldness is: A bald person is somebody who has lost all his or her hair (in the area that is affected by Male Pattern Hair Loss this would be the top of the head). We refer to 'bald' as the smooth areas of skin where hair once appeared but now appears shiny and absent of hair. However, a man or woman suffering from 'hair loss' can have thick and healthy locks of hair, be it for a limited amount of time! Over time his or her hair will slowly but surely become thinner and the scalp will become increasingly visible through the hair, leading to eventual baldness in the case of many men.
So what are these 'cures' for hair loss, you may wonder? They are the effective treatments that can prevent most men and women from ever having to reach the stage of 'baldness' with the possibility of thickening up the hair if there has already been a degree of thinning. There are three proven hair loss treatments available and Harris explains that The Belgravia Centre fine tune their hair loss treatment courses for each individual case, deciding on which of these treatments, and at what strength they will be most effective depending on the specific condition and stage of hair loss each person has reached.
The Belgravia Centre report to have found about 9 out of 10 men will experience hair loss stabilisation from the use of their 'combination' treatment courses. 'Combination' refers to a combination of the proven hair loss treatments, as well as added 'boosters' that increase the effectiveness of the 'primary' treatments. The treatments are also very effective for women suffering from various forms of female hair loss.
So in 10 years time, if further research proves that a cure for baldness is possible, would it really make a difference? For the bald man this is an exciting prospect - it would ensure areas of complete baldness could one day be replaced with thick and healthy hair. But for those beginning to lose their hair, or even those who have lost a reasonable amount of hair, something can already be done. Proof of this can be found by taking a look at the Belgravia Centre's 'before and during treatment photo-scans' which show the degree of hair loss stabilisation and regrowth that is achieved by many of the hair loss sufferers that seek help from the Belgravia Centre.
