Finasteride

Hair Loss Medication

WHAT IS FINASTERIDE ?

Finasteride is a prescription-only hair loss medication. It’s widely known under the brand name of Propecia, but the actual medication is called Finasteride and like most medications the generic versions are as effective as the branded ones

Finasteride belongs to a group of medicines called 5 alpha reductase inhibitors and has been used to treat hair loss since 1990.

Real Results

Are Finasteride Results Proven?

To test Finasteride’s effectiveness, researchers conducted a five-year medical trial to identify the long-term effects of the medication, as well as any short-term effects or results. After five years, the results shown were extremely positive.

42% of men who took Finasteride experienced hair growth in areas where they were becoming bald and another 48% noticed that their hair loss had ceased and that no more hair had fallen out.

Overall, 90% of the men taking the clinical trial experienced positive results.

Not only did the five-year clinical trials involving Finasteride  conclude that it is a successful hair loss solution for men with male pattern baldness, but also that it improves the overall condition of their hair, which became thicker and stronger.

How Does Finasteride Work For Hair Loss

​Finasteride works as a long-term method of decreasing the effect of DHT *on hair follicles. It has a high success rate in those with mild to moderate hair loss but may need to be taken for several months before any effect is seen.

*DHT stands for the hormone dihydrotestosterone. Genetic baldness is caused by a disorder that causes the hair follicles to become sensitive to DHT. As a result, they shrink, weaken and eventually die, causing hair loss.
