Introduction

Propecia is a clinically proven medication used to prevent hair loss and stimulates hair growth. This FDA approved medication is found effective in the treatment of male pattern baldness on the top of the head and in the anterior mid scalp area. The medication belongs to androgen hormone inhibitor that stops conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone, which is primarily responsible for male pattern baldness. The drug with a success rate of 80% is found quite effective in the treatment of hair loss in men. Finasteride, active ingredient in Propecia, protect damage of hair follicles caused basically due to hormones and encourage the follicles to grow thicker and stronger.


Use

Propecia is primarily used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss on the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp area. The medication is only recommended for men and should not be used by children or women. The medication works by decreasing the amount of dihydrotestosterone, which is a natural body hormone. The decrease in the amount of natural body hormone results in the increase hair growth and slower hair loss rate. It has also been observed that hair growth on other parts of the body is not affected by the use of this medication.
