Men are being warned that steroids can lead to premature baldness after a leading hair clinic reported an alarming rise in the number of patients affected by the designer drugs.

Optima Hair Specialists which supplies advanced hair replacement systems has seen a 60 per cent increase in enquiries from men who have taken anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) and suffered early hair loss as a result.

AAS are believed to stimulate Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) a powerful sex hormone that triggers baldness in men.

Peter Murtha, founder of Optima Hair Specialists, said: “It is widely accepted that DHT has an adverse affect on hair follicles and is the main culprit behind male pattern baldness. Recent studies have found that steroid drugs can increase the levels of DHT within the body and therefore accelerate hair loss.

“Alarmingly, we’ve seen a significant rise in enquiries from men who have taken steroids and subsequently suffered from premature baldness. I feel it’s crucial to warn others of the potential dangers, so they can avoid the side effects of AAS.”

Peter added: “If you have taken steroids and suffered premature baldness, all is not lost. There are treatments and solutions available to help you regain your head of hair and your confidence. At Optima, we provide a range of advanced hair replacement systems that tackle your hair loss, improve your appearance and boost your self-esteem.”

If you are thinking of using anabolic steroids to boost your muscles growth you should be aware of the consequences of your actions. The side effects of steroids are numerous and can be severe and you should not use anything unless your doctor has given to you. Be warned also that there are many fake and dangerously manufactured steroids sold on the black market which find their way into gyms and health shops.

In order to treat hair loss effectively we would recommend that you have a diagnosis made as soon as possible by one of our experienced Westminster Trichologists. Stress can be an aggravator in almost all cases of hair loss and an accurate diagnosis will always, at the very least, take some of the stress away from you.

Gary Heron says: “You’ll have access to the most effective treatments available through The Hair Centre and at a fraction of the cost of going to other Private Commercial Clinics and Centres.”

When it’s time to see the Trichologist: If you begin losing hair rapidly, and or are cosmetically concerned about baldness, consult your Trichologist about treatment options. You can receive a free hair loss consultation with a Westminster Trichologist at our Hair Centre.

The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.

“Why buy hair loss treatments over the counter or on the internet when you can see a Westminster Trichologist for FREE and know that you are guaranteed results”
