Description

Finasteride belongs to a group of medicines known as Type-II 5-alpha reductase inhibitors. Finasteride is a medication used to treat early forms of male pattern baldness, with Finasteride shown to be an effective treatment in 90% of men.

Finasteride works by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), by inhibiting the enzyme that causes the conversion. DHT interacts with receptors in at the root of your hair follicles causing the hair loss process. The number of hairs that are at danger, from DHT, and their location is determined by the genes we inherit from our parents.

Results from Finasteride will take at least 3-6 months to be seen, and full results can take between 12-18 months. Once full results have been achieved, the treatment must be continued or you will return to your original condition.
