Hair loss is very common, especially among men, but can affect everybody. This is such a prevalent occurrence, that according to the National Library of Medicine, more than 50 percent over age 50 will be affected by male pattern baldness, or androgenic alopecia, in one way or another. It’s no wonder, then, that there are so many products and treatments designed to help with male hair loss. At HairCareMD, we offer one of the most popular and effective hair loss prevention medications with Propecia in New York City. Keep reading below for more information.

The Basics

What is Propecia

Propecia is a brand name for the generic drug Finasteride – a prescription-only oral tablet taken daily to slow down hair loss in men and women. Approved by the FDA in 1997, this treatment uses the enzyme 5-alpha reductase (the enzyme involved in steroid metabolism), Propecia blocks the conversion of testosterone to the androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Testosterone is a hormone that’s present in both men and women, though men typically have more testosterone present in their bodies. According to the Society for Endocrinology, about 10 percent of testosterone in all adults is converted to DHT. Testosterone contributes to the growth of body hair.

Though research suggests it’s an effective treatment, some people are unable to overcome some of the drug’s side effects, such as lower libido, erectile dysfunction, and decreased volume of semen.

It’s important to know that Propecia cannot prevent male pattern hair loss, and cannot regrow hair that has been permanently lost, but it can stop hair loss in its tracks.

What are the Benefits of a Propecia?

Our patients who use Propecia in New York City have discovered the following benefits from their hair loss prevention treatments:

  • It’s efficient: People who have consistently used the medication found that it slowed down hair loss and thickened thinning hair.
  • Some have noticed more hair on top of their head: This is due to the rejuvenation of dormant follicles.
    Works well for slowing down male pattern baldness: While it can impact any place you have hair, it’s been well-studied for this type of hair loss.
  • Should notice a benefit starting after 3 months: You’ll start seeing it working as long as you take it consistently, once a day, as directed by your doctor.

Who are the Best Candidates for Propecia?

At HairCareMD, we believe that the best candidates for Propecia are men experiencing crown thinning or baldness. Propecia can (and often should) be used along with other preventive hair loss treatments, such as shampoos and other topical treatments.

It’s important to note that some women who have experienced hair loss after menopause have seen success in using Propecia, but this treatment is not recommended for women of childbearing capacity because of the potential for fetal birth irregularities.
