Hair Loss Treatment

There are a several medications that have been shown to slow the process of hair loss. Medications that include finasteride (commonly known as propecia) and dutasteride (known as avodart) have proven to be the most effective. Both of these medications have proven very effective in clinical trials for re-growing thinning hair at the top of the scalp. Some clinical trials have shown that up to 80% of finasteride users have experienced and marked decline of baldness process while using this medicine. Both of these medicines work in the same way to battle hair loss: they inhibit the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the hormone that causes hereditary balding. This hormone can affect hair follicles that are genetically vulnerable by breaking them down and preventing hair growth in the future. By using medication to inhibit this process, patients can experience renewed hair growth. Not only does the medication halt or slow the process of hair loss, but it can even cause hair to begin to grow again.

Rogaine is one of the most commonly recognized forms of treatment to fight hair thinning and hair loss. Rogaine (also known as Minoxidil) acts as a form of liquid to stop the baldness process. In some cases promotes even hair regrowth.

One important thing to know about the use of hair loss medications is that, even though these drugs are proven to be successful, they usually do not have any effect on hair growth in front of the hairline. This area is usually resist the drug more than the head crown. Therefore often recommended methods to stop hair loss is hair transplantation, which is clearly the best alternative to restore your hair loss area.
