How Does Finasteride Work in Treating Male Pattern Baldness?

Finasteride - When compared to the old days, there have been a lot of changes in treatment for male hair loss. At one time, men only had a handful of options to rely on – such as wigs or innovative combing techniques – to hide their bald pate. Times have changed, and there have been many advances in medical science. Today, drugs like Finasteride are very popular and commonly used for re-growing hair in men. Find out how it works as a low-cost alternative to hair transplant in Turkey for men.

Drug Effects and Usage

Finasteride is designed for treating hair thinning issues on the temple. It is known by various other brand names, such as Propecia and Proscar, which come in varying strengths. This prescription drug works similar to Minoxidil. It should only be used by men. Studies have shown that the medication has a negative impact when used on women, such as leading to birth defects and delivery of stillborn babies. Its active ingredients can make mini hair strands in the temple thicker in appearance, which promotes thick hair growth and helps avoid shedding of hair.

Is this Drug Safe?

It is approved by FDA or Food and Drug Administration in the USA. The organization has stated that the drug is safe to use for curing the hormonal problems that frequently result in male pattern baldness. However, there are still some worries about its side effects. The drug generally offers positive results in just one year of initiating the treatment. If no positive effect is experienced during this time, you should consult your doctor and look for other alternative cures for baldness – such as offered by top hair clinics like SHIFT Hair Transplant.

How does Finasteride Work?

It works by removing excessive amounts of the secondary male sex hormone known as DHT (Dihydrotestosterone). Few men have actually known that DHT is derivative of testosterone, one of the main male sex hormones. 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme, works as a catalyst and reduces the total quantity of testosterone. This triggers male pattern baldness. The enzyme generally converts the free testosterone into DHT, which leads to a rise in the number of androgenic hormones in the crown. The natural conversion process is reduced by Finasteride, which reduces the level of DHT and allows more hair growth. When taken for some time, the medication helps fix the imbalance of DHT in the body. The drug fights the rise in DHT and restores health and balance to the scalp.
