Propecia’s 1 mg dose of finasteride can effectively lower DHT levels in the scalp by as much as 60% when taken daily. It is DHT that shrinks or miniaturizes the hair follicle, which eventually leads to baldness. This 60% reduction in DHT has proven to stop the progression of hair loss in 86% of men taking the drug during clinical trials. 65% of trial participants had what was considered a substantial increase of hair growth.
They hurt, but they work. lnjecting cortisone directly into the scalp blocks the hormonal activity that induces hair thinning. This works especially well in patients with inflammatory scalp disease, says Bergfeld.
PRP in simple terms modifies the blood to stimulate the hair growth. In other words, it energizes or activates the blood flowing around the scalp. As a first step, doctor draws some blood from your body, centrifuges and processes it to produce PRP- cocktail.
Physicians are reluctant to use systemic treatment (a pill or other form of internal treatment that affects your entire system) unless they know that the hair loss is due to an excess of androgen in the system or a sensitized “over-response” to the so-called “normal” amounts of androgen in the system. That’s because these systemic treatments may lower the body’s androgen levels. Therefore, physicians often choose topical treatments (those that are applied directly to the scalp).
Dont worry hair loss is a natural phenomenon and it cannot be sopped…but delayed. Get rid of dandruff with the help of a doctor. Eat a lot of vegetables, Stop smoking and avoid abusing your hair with all the latest shampoos. You have a thousand plus solutions off the shelf but they are all fake including hair transplant – they only fleece money. Drink a lot of water and get to meet a good doctor. CUTIS on BVK Ivyengar Road, Bangalore is a good place to visit. I have known many cases of hair fall stop & regrowth. You need to stick to the prescription without fail.
Thank you, Turner. Finasteride should be enough. I wouldn’t take more than one oral DHT blocking treatment, but I wouldn’t shy away from using additional topical DHT blockers – like Lipogaine for Men (minoxidil plus DHT blocking ingredients).
Topical spironolactone is a weak topical DHT blocker. Some users swear by it, but the general tone is that spironolactone is not as effective as finasteride. If you are concerned about the side effects of finasteride or if you are a woman, it is worth giving topical spironolactone a try.
Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids that perform multiple functions when it comes to healing skin issues. Your scalp is an extension of your skin. When this skin is distressed, it affects your hair growth. When fish oil supplements are taken, this stress is taken away by the anti-inflammatory activity of the omega-3 fats. These fatty acids also ensure the healthy development of the skin’s various layers and also their hydration and nourishment (59, 60). Take fish oil supplements on a daily basis for healthy skin and hair growth. You can take cod liver oil supplements instead of the fish oil ones as they also contain the same omega-3 fatty acids (61).
I know that they say that it takes 3 months to see results, but I used it for 6 months and at month 6, I finally started to see a tiny bit of hair regrowth. I switched over to Minoxigaine by Hairgenics FDA Approved Hair Growth Formula with 5% Minoxidil Plus Powerful DHT Blockers and I saw more results in two months than I did in 6 months with Rogaine! It contains a stronger concentration of minoxidil plus alzelaic acid and other things that have really worked wonders for me. Rogaine is not bad but Minoxigaine is much better.
“It’s been, I would say, kind of the holy grail in the field to be able to find something that is less invasive, less surgically intensive and can capitalize on the natural properties of these hair stem cells,” said Professor Christiano, who herself suffers from alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that causes partial or total hair loss.
