88% Of Men See Hair Regrowth & Slowing Of Hair Loss With Finasteride
Hair loss or thinning is inevitable for most men but staying that way is optional. Two-thirds of men begin losing their hair by age 35 due to a condition known as male pattern baldness (MPB) an androgenic alopecia. MPB accounts for 95% of hair loss in men.
Fortunately, finasteride, the active ingredient in Propecia, is FDA-approved and clinically proven to treat male pattern baldness at the scalp with an to 88% success rate in clinical studies. The oral medication is also clincally shown to improve overall hair fullness and health and treat hair loss at the anterior/mid area of the scalp.1
How Does Finasteride Work?
Finasteride is a 5-reductase inhibitor. It prevents the enzyme 5-reductase from converting testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
DHT is responsible for male characteristics such as hair growth, deep voice and muscles, but for reasons not fully understood, when DHT builds up in the scalp is causes hair loss. It binds to androgen receptors in the scalp and prevents blood supply from reaching the hair follicles. As a result. the hair follicles shrink in a process caused miniaturization and cannot produce more hair.
