Alope­cia or as it is commonly known, hair loss, is a great problem among men and women of different ages and coming from different backgrounds. Due to stress, sud­den weight loss, malnutrition and other fac­tors, alope­cia can start to develop in peo­ple who oth­er­wise had had healthy hair.

Accord­ing to your skin and hair type, there are var­i­ous med­ical treat­ments which can help restore your beau­ti­ful hair and improve your self-con­fi­dence. Among the med­ica­tion usu­ally pre­scribed for men suf­fer­ing from alope­cia, there is a minox­i­dil (5%) based solu­tion called Rogaine, used to regrow hair on the top of the scalp. This treat­ment is to be under­gone only by men who are over 18 and who are not using other med­i­cine on the scalp. The side of the car­ton of this prod­uct shows sev­eral hair loss pic­tures in order to give you an idea of what kind of alope­cia you should suf­fer from in order to use this treat­ment.

Finas­teride is another treat­ment you can undergo in order to treat bald­ness. This drug was ini­tially meant to treat enlarged prostate glands, but researchers noticed hair growth as a side-effect. Prope­cia (Finas­teride) became thus the first drug in his­tory to effec­tively treat male pat­tern bald­ness in the major­ity of men who use it. Researchers have con­cluded that, at the moment, the only truly effec­tive med­ically proven way to reverse the process of hair loss is to lower DHT (dihy­drotestos­terone) lev­els, the andro­gen respon­si­ble with shrink­ing and minia­tur­iz­ing the hair fol­li­cle (a process that leads to bald­ness) and this is exactly how Finas­teride works. It is impor­tant to know from the out­set that Prope­cia is also suit­able only for men since it might have seri­ous side-effects in the treat­ment of bald­ness in women.

In the case of the Rogaine treat­ment, results become vis­i­ble within two months, up to a year. Although it has been proven effi­cient in about two-thirds of the men who have used the treat­ment, this does not guar­an­tee results for every man. This is why a spe­cial­ized med­ical con­sul­ta­tion is nec­es­sary prior to under­go­ing the minox­i­dil treat­ment. The minox­i­dil treat­ment is rather safe and the only observed side-effects are poten­tial scalp irri­ta­tion or an ini­tial hair loss increase.

On the other hand, Prope­cia (Finas­teride) has proven effi­cient in about 80% of men alope­cia cases with vis­i­ble results in three up to six months of treat­ment. What you need to know is that you must con­tinue using Prope­cia in order to main­tain any ben­e­fits of hair growth. Oth­er­wise, the hair you man­aged to restore might fall. This hair restora­tion treat­ment is also rather safe. How­ever, researchers did dis­cover cer­tain side-effects such as a reduced sex drive or tem­po­rary impo­tence while on med­ica­tion.

Before resort­ing to any of the two above men­tioned treat­ments or oth­ers, you should con­sult a doc­tor and have your scalp eval­u­ated before tak­ing any med­ica­tion. This is impor­tant in order to ben­e­fit from the best hair restora­tion results of the treat­ment and to avoid poten­tial side-effects. At Aura Hair Transplant, our spe­cial­ists will pro­vide you with a pro­fes­sional con­sul­ta­tion, ana­lyze your med­ical his­tory and pre­scribe you the most suit­able hair loss med­ica­tion for your par­tic­u­lar type of alope­cia.
