If you were diagnosed an androgenic alopecia, you have probably heard about a medicine Propecia. Today, Propecia is the only method to effectively, quickly and without surgeries stop hair loss and return beautiful and healthy hair for a man.
What is Propecia?
Propecia is a medicine for the treatment of the androgenic alopecia which has unique pharmacological characteristics and has been approved by FDA. It contains the active ingredient finasteride.
Propecia is the first medical product developed for the treatment of the androgenic alopecia. Only surgical methods were used before transplanting hair follicles to the area of alopecia. But unlike surgical method of the alopecia treatment, Propecia guarantees 100% result and a long-lasting effect.
Androgenic alopecia is caused by the high level of the male hormone dihydrotestosterone. An excessive concentration of this hormone has a negative influence on the hair follicles, they stop producing new hair and die.
Propecia has unique characteristics of the recovery of the hair follicles. It blocks the production of dihydrotestosterone, so that the hair roots are gradually restored and new hair begins to grow on the area of alopecia.
There are many types of the alopecia but Propecia works only during the androgenic one caused by the hormone changes and excessive amount of dihydrotestosterone. In case of other types of alopecia, Finasteride is ineffective because it does not influence on the cause of alopecia. Fortunately, most balding men (about 95%) have androgenic type of alopecia which is considered genetical and transmitted via parental lineage.
Who is contraindicated to take Propecia?
Propecia is ineffective in the treatment of the female alopecia and can be even dangerous for women. Penetrating into the female body (the particles of the pill can penetrate even into the skip of hands), finasteride starts the process of change of the hormone level, so that the woman can have a hormone disorder (a reduction of the estrogen level and an increase of testosterone level). Due to this reason, women are strictly contraindicated to take Propecia and even touch the pills.
Patients under 18 years are also not recommended to use Propecia.
Propecia is contraindicated during the acute renal failure, because the main process of finasteride metabolism is disturbed.
How to take Propecia?
To restore hair, Propecia should be used for a long time. The length of the treatment takes 6 to 12 months depending on the level of alopecia. It is not recommended to take the pills more than 12 months at a run, and therefore it is required to make a break for 2-3 months one per year and follow the changes.
In the process of alopecia treatment, a man has to take a pill of Propecia 1 mg per day. You can take Propecia 1 mg at any time with a glass of water.
The first results will appear within the first 3 months of the treatment. If the results did not appear, and you continue to lose hair, the dose of Propecia will be increased up to 5 mg. This is the maximal everyday dose which will help to stop alopecia.
Do not skip the use of Propecia 5 mg in order to maintain therapeutic effect within 24 hours.
