Male pattern baldness

Finasteride and male pattern baldness

Male pattern hair loss is genetically caused by a hormone called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

We all have an enzyme called II 5-alpha-reductase in our bodies, which converts testosterone into the steroid hormone DHT.

The hormone shortens the hair growth phase, leading to thinner hair and in turn (male) hair loss.

Finasteride works against male pattern baldness by blocking (inhibiting) the enzyme so that DHT cannot be produced.

If you have a relatively light hair loss, Finasteride can be an effective solution. The earlier you start the medicine, the better effect it will have on your hair follicles.

Side effects

Treatment duration and side effects

We recommend a treatment period of at least 6 months in order to evaluate the effect of the medicine on your hair loss.

The most common side effects are decreased libido and impotence. These side effects usually occur at the beginning of treatment and in the majority of users they are transient with continued treatment.

If you feel bad about the side effects, we recommend that you stop taking the medicine. The side effects should then disappear within a month.

Finasteride in combination with PRP

The combination of PRP and Finasteride is an especially effective treatment for male pattern baldness. Because the medicine blocks DHT, your hair follicle will feel better.

By injecting PRP into a hair follicle that is feeling better, we increase the chances that the treatment will be as effective as possible. That’s why we recommend many of our clients who do PRP treatments to also start with the drug.
