He told us, “First, we need to understand what causes hair loss in men. It is reported that more than 50% of men will show some signs of hair thinning by the age of 30 years old. The reason why the vast majority of men have hair thinning is due predominantly to genetics.”
In photos, 48-year-old Affleck has been unable to hide his thinning problem.
Abrahamian say, “Testosterone gets converted to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT for short), which is the primary culprit of hair miniaturization and hair-loss in men. The more testosterone an individual has in their system, more DHT the body makes, which in turn can contribute to hair-loss.”
“Other factors contributing to hair-loss include stress, sudden weight loss, hormonal imbalances, vitamin deficiencies, and autoimmune conditions to name a few,” he tells us.
The hair expert explains some options available for Affleck include the “FUE hair restoration, which is the most advanced technique when it comes to surgical hair restoration options.”
Further, “Non-surgical measures such as Stem Cell therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, daily topical medications, and oral medications which can block the negative effects of DHT on the hair follicle. Usually, these non-surgical modalities take 6 to 9 months to see results.”
However, it’s not all bad news for Affleck. The expert says based on the photos, “Mr. Affleck still has the opportunity to reverse the signs of hairline thinning non-surgically if he were to decide to take early actions in combating the negative effects of DHT. “
As Radar previously reported, despite the issues with his appearance, Affleck seems to be thriving in his personal life. Earlier this month, the Batman V Superman actor was spotted on a romantic weekend trip with Lopez.
