PROPECIA

More than 80 percent of men will have significant hair loss in their lifetime. While many factors contribute to hair loss, genetics play the biggest role in hair loss development. Men that experience hair loss are susceptible to DHT, the hormone responsible for thinning and eventually eliminating hair on top of the scalp. Telltale signs like increased hair at the bottom of the shower might make hair restoration seem unrealistic, but there are many options for men that wish to regain the hair they once had. Propecia is a hair loss solution that many choose because of its convenience, affordability, and results. As an oral medication, Propecia is an easy, stress-free way to boost confidence and self-worth in men that seek hair restoration.

Propecia is the first and only FDA-approved pill proven to treat male pattern hair loss. Propecia is a prescription drug used to treat androgenetic alopecia in men, otherwise known as male pattern baldness. It is effective for baldness at the crown and the middle of the scalp. Finasteride, the generic form of Propecia, was not originally intended to treat male pattern baldness. It was first intended to treat symptoms from an enlarged prostate gland. Propecia became FDA-approved once its benefits for male pattern baldness were discovered. It is the only pill FDA-approved to treat hair loss. The only additional hair loss medication approved by the FDA besides Propecia is Rogaine®.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PROPECIA FOR HAIR RESTORATION?

Using Propecia blocks the testosterone that turns into DHT, the hormone responsible for male pattern baldness. DHT attacks hair follicles by binding to receptors in your scalp. Eventually, these hair follicles shrink and stop producing new hairs, causing gradual hair loss. Propecia for hair restoration not only blocks DHT from binding onto susceptible hairs but also gives thinning areas time to regrow. Hair on the back and sides of the head are resistant to DHT, making them the most suitable donor hairs for hair restoration. Propecia can be used with other forms of hair restoration. It is often combined with Rogaine®, a topical treatment used to treat hair loss.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE USE OF PROPECIA?

Propecia is appropriate for those in the earlier stages of hair loss. Propecia may not be the best choice for someone in the later stages of hair loss. The hair density required to reverse the later stages of hair loss can typically only be obtained with surgical options.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PROPECIA COMPARED TO SURGICAL HAIR RESTORATION OPTIONS?

Propecia is a great choice for patients that wish to seek hair restoration but don’t want to endure certain aspects of hair restoration surgery. Hair restoration surgery can result in minimal recovery time and scarring. If you don’t wish to have permanent scarring or endure any soreness that may come post-surgery, Propecia can treat hair loss without any of these surgical ailments. Propecia is also effective for mild-to-moderate hair loss, and for patients that are okay with a longer hair restoration process.

HOW DO I USE PROPECIA?

Propecia is an oral medication that is used daily to stop DHT from producing hair loss. The generic form of Propecia is finasteride. A single, 1-milligram dose is the standard for treating hair loss.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF PROPECIA?

Propecia, like most medications, may have potential side effects. Propecia has been reported to decrease libido in some men. It should also be noted that Propecia should only be used by men, not women or children. Propecia can be especially harmful to women that are pregnant.
