Hair Thinning Treatment In Men

Although hair thinning or losing rarely needs to be treated, most people opt for treatment just for cosmetic reasons.

Most cases of hair fall are temporary, for instance, due to chemotherapy or ageing, which does not need treatment. However, hair fall can have an impact on emotional health; so many people may look for hair thinning treatment to look good.

If hair loss is due to scalp infection or any other condition, treating the underlying problem is enough to prevent further hair fall. Also called androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness is one of the most common problems.

Usually, male pattern baldness is not treated, as the hair thinning treatment is expensive and might not work for everyone.

Two medications that are effective in treating male pattern baldness are Finasteride and Minoxidil. None of these treatments is available on the National Health Service (NHS).

Finasteride is only available on private prescription from your medical professional. It comes as a pill that you need to take daily for several months. This drug works by inhibiting the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The hormone DHT shrinks the hair follicles, so blocking the production of DHT allows the hair follicles to restore their thickness.

Clinical studies have suggested that Finasteride can help increase the number of hairs in men with androgenic alopecia. It helps prevent hair loss and promote hair regrowth in terms of density as well as thickness.

Side effects with Finasteride tablets are uncommon. Rarely, some men may experience low sexual drive or impotence.

Minoxidil is available as liquid solution that you need to rub on your scalp on a daily basis. You can buy Minoxidil (Regaine) from online pharmacy such as Pharmacy Outlet without a prescription. It is idiopathic how Minoxidil works, but it is presumed that it promotes hair growth by increasing the blood supply to the hair follicles.

Minoxidil is available in two potencies – 2% and 5%; studies suggest that stronger potency is more effective.

Like Finasteride, Minoxidil is ought to be used for several months to notice improvement. Remember that the balding process will come again if your stop the hair thinning treatment.
