Propecia allows patients to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth. There are multiple factors that cause hair loss, including genetics and hormonal changes. Hair loss at any age can be a real blow to a person’s self-esteem. Once you start to notice that your hair is going, it’s hard to get the thought out of your mind.

At Follicles Hair Loss Clinic, our goal is to be able to provide hair-loss solutions to as many people as possible. That is why we offer effective non-surgical hair-restoration treatments like Propecia.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair growth occurs in three phases. The anagen phase is known as the growth stage. This phase usually lasts for more than two years. The next phase is the catagen phase and is the short transitional phase that last for around 10 days once hair growth stops. Lastly comes the telogen stage, also known as the resting phase, when the hair falls out and the follicle rests and prepares to restart the cycle. This phase lasts around three months.

Male-pattern hair loss occurs when the hair follicles are miniaturized, the anagen phase is significantly shortened, and the telogen phase is extended. This is caused by DHT, an anagen hormone naturally produced by the body. As the issue progresses, hairs began to grow thinner and in smaller amounts. Eventually, the anagen phase become so short that new hair growth cannot occur.

What Is Propecia?

Propecia is a daily pill that can help to combat male-pattern baldness and promote hair growth in men who are experiencing hair loss on their crown and around the center of their scalp. Propecia pills are taken orally. Propecia is an FDA-approved product and has been proven to be effective and safe based on the information gathered from multiple studies.

How Does Propecia Work?

Propecia works by reducing the production of DHT, a hormone naturally produced by the body. Studies have shown that DHT can cause hair follicles to be miniaturized, which is believed to be a primary contributing factor in male-pattern baldness.

Reducing the amount of DHT in the body can help to prevent the follicles from becoming miniaturized and can maintain the length of the anagen phase. This allows new hair growth to occur normally.

What to Expect

It will take some time for Propecia to take effect. Most people see noticeable results after around three to six months. Hair growth can be seen and the amount of hair being lost should significantly decrease. It is best to take Propecia at the same time every day. Once you cease taking Propecia, hair loss will begin again and there will be a decrease in hair production. Studies have shown that more than 80% of men who take Propecia maintain or increase the amount of hair that they have over time.
