Finasteride

The only effective hairloss medicine that really works

If you are experiencing hair loss there might be a cure – it is called finasteride. Before we explain what it is exactly and how it works stopping your hair loss we should set straight first to what type of hair loss we are referring to.

There is a variety of causes for hair loss in men, one of them is called androgenetic alopecia, which is assumed to be inheretive. Finasteride only works for this specific type of hair loss. In order to determine whether you suffer from male pattern baldness you need to observe the pattern that your hairloss follows.

The pattern of hairloss that can be stopped with finasteride

In most cases it starts with thinning on both sides of the temples, followed by thinning on the frontal area and vertex. Over time these four areas merge together and the hair left is shaped like a horse shoe. At this point you’re too late with starting a finasteride treatment. The earlier you start with finasteride, the more hair will grow back. This is because hair follicles are still intact although they hold less hairs, and those hairs left are thinner and shorter. Even spots on your scalp that seem bald can still contain active hair follicles, and thus bald spots can become dense with hair again. Besides hair regrowth, it also halts any further hairloss.

Finasteride mechanism

How does finasteride stops hairloss and causes hair regrowth you migh think. In order to understand what is going on in your body when you start taking finasteride we will have to explain the science behind it. First of all, your body produces testosteron and another form of testosteron called dihydrotestosteron, also called DHT. Together these two testosterones make up the total testosterone in your body. DHT arises in your body from the conversion of testosteron through an enzyme that is called 5-alpha-reductase. DHT is the culprit that causes hair loss. As this enzyme is pressent in the hair glands that lie around the hair follicles, testosteron will be converted to DHT and this attached to the hair follicles. As a result it weakens your hair follicles which will start to shrink and your hair will fall out. Eventually your hair follicles will dissapear, and your hair will never grow back in those areas.

Finasteride is an inhibitor of this enzym, which means it blocks the 5-alpha reductase enzyme and therefore DHT cannot be formed anymore. Your hair follicles will stay healthy and your hair keeps growing as it should.
