We have been in the news again at Crown Clinic.
We written here before about how the royal family has a strong baldness gene running through the generations.
From Prince Philip, through to Prince Charles and now on to Prince William and even Prince Harry – each new generation of the Windsors has the same problem.
We thought it would be fun to see how Prince William and Prince Harry will look when they are 50.
We commissioned some graphics showing how ageing would affect their hair – and the story was picked up all over the world. Here is one of the pieces below from the Daily Mail.
As our brilliant surgeon Asim Shahmalak explained to the Mail, it may already be too late for Prince William to reverse his hair loss. It is so great now that any hair transplant surgeon would have his work cut out, to say the least! That is not to say he could not halt further hair loss by taking a clinically proven drug like Finasteride.
Prince Harry, who turns 30 next month, is a completely different proposition. He appears to have inherited the same baldness gene but so far his male pattern baldness is at an early stage – certainly it is far too early to warrant a hair transplant. He is thinning around the crown and this hair loss is likely accelerate. By 50, as our graphic shows, he will have significant hair loss.
Here’s hoping that Prince Harry takes measures to combat his hair loss – first with Finasteride and then perhaps later with a hair transplant, if necessary, through a FUE or FUT procedure. It would send out a great message to men everywhere that you don’t have to accept baldness and there are simple remedies to make it go away.
