Wouldn’t it be great to reverse the hair loss you already have? Now you can with Propecia. Even better, this revolutionary treatment is as easy as taking a tablet. Propecia is a medication your doctor may prescribe that works with hormones in your body to increase hair regrowth on the head. This drug is only available for treatment with men.
How it Works
Propecia decreases amounts of dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, which is a natural body hormone that contributes to male hair loss. The medication accomplishes this by inhibiting the enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT. As a result, lowered amounts of DHT actually increase the regrowth of hair and decrease hair loss.
Propecia is taken by mouth once daily or as directed by your doctor. It works best when taken regularly but can be taken with or without food. The medication must be continued to maintain desired results. Typically, results can be seen early in the procedure but may take up to 3 months to start to appear.
Treatment with Propecia has a very high success rate. There is about a 90% chance of slowing or completely stopping hair loss. As for regrowth, there is a 66% likelihood or regrowing hair in the vertex of the scalp, about 50% in the mid-scalp and 20% chance in the front. Full results are visible only after the patient has been on Propecia for one full year.
