Propecia can stop hair loss.
If you are going bald you should consider using Propecia to halt
or even reverse your hair loss. While there is no “Hair Loss Cure”,
hair loss drugs like Propecia can often stop or even reverse alopecia in
Studies have shown that almost 80% of men using Propecia stopped
or even reversed their hair loss to some degree.
Propecia (Finasteride) was originally a drug called Proscar, which
was used to treat and reduce mens prostate conditions such as benign prostatic
Its parent company, Merck & Co., soon realized that the drug had a
unique side effect - it grew hair on bald men's heads. In December 22, 1997
the FDA approved Propecia as a hair loss pill. Merck & Co. then marketed
the drug as a hair loss treatment under the trade name of Propecia.
How Propecia inhibits DHT and hair loss.
Baldness is largely the result of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) interacting
with those hair follicles that are genetically vulnerable to their effects.
DHT is essentially the active ingredient or catalyst for the hair loss
process. DHT binds with the receptor sites of genetically vulnerable follicles
and gradually degrades the follicles ability to produce healthy hair. This
eventually results in baldness in the affected areas.
Propecia works by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone into "DHT".
By reducing the DHT present in the scalp the thinning process is slowed
and some times even reversed.
Limitations of Propecia.
However, Propecia has not been proven to restore hair in the frontal areas.
For reasons yet unknown these drugs, along with Rogaine, generally only
work in regrowing thinning hair in crown area of the scalp. Only hair transplant
surgery has been successful in restoring hair in the frontal hairline area
once it has been lost.
Propecia is also less effective in growing hair in older men. These hair
loss drugs work best for men who have been balding for less than five years.
