What exactly is Propecia?
Propecia (finasteride) is a prescription medication available for men suffering with male pattern baldness. It was the first approved treatment for hair loss and still remains the most effective medication to this day. Clinical studies have shown that finasteride (the active ingredient in Propecia) stopped hair loss in over 90% of men with two thirds noticing regrowth.
As well as boasting evidence from studies that lasted five years, Propecia is an established, trusted medication, having been around since 1997. Most men will notice improvements within three to six months of using Propecia. By month nine, you can expect to be maintaining the amount of hair you have, whilst possibly seeing regrowth in some areas.
How does Propecia work?
The active ingredient in Propecia is a reductase inhibitor called finasteride. This functions to obstruct the process that is known to block hair regrowth.
Male pattern baldness commonly occurs because of testosterone breaking down in your body. This happens in every male and is a completely natural process, but certain men have a marked sensitivity to the by-products of this process, which will eventually lead to the loss of hair.
The main product of this process is DHT, dihydrotestosterone, which causes the hair follicles to get smaller as well as reducing the size of the hair root. As a result, any new hair will be much thinner and eventually, the hair follicle will be so small that hair can't grow out of it anymore. Finasteride aims to block the action of DHT, preventing the follicle from constricting so hair can still grow.
Can anyone take Propecia?
