Finasteride Hair Loss Treatments

Hair loss can come in many forms, whether it’s a receding hairline, a bald spot that’s getting bigger, or you’ve noticed your hair becoming more sparse all over your head. This can be a big problem for many men, as hair is a mark of attractiveness and youth. This is why Genesis Lifestyle Medicine offers finasteride for those who want a healthy scalp and fuller head of hair.  

What is finasteride?

Finasteride is an oral prescription hair restoration drug that has been FDA approved for the treatment of hair loss. It slows down hair loss in about 88% of men, and helps to regrow hair in about 66%. With those numbers, you can see that this treatment has proven to be extraordinarily successful for many.

How finasteride works

Finasteride is a DHT blocker. DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is a male sex hormone that is at the root of hair loss. While many hair restoration treatments depend on grafting or enlarging hair follicles, finasteride works by attacking the source of the problem, binding to the 5α-Reductase enzyme and reducing the amount of DHT that is produced in the body.  

What to expect

Every patient is different when it comes to results from finasteride. For some, it may take four months of consistent daily use before results are apparent. For others, the results may be seen at six months or even later.

During your consultation, we will discuss with you when you may be able to see results. We will also go over the hair growth phases so that you fully understand how hair grows.

Are there side effects with finasteride?

Because there are some considerable side effects for some men who take finasteride, it is a prescription drug that requires a consultation. We want to make sure that finasteride is right and safe for you, so before prescribing it, we will thoroughly discuss these side effects with you, as well as go over your medical history so that you have all the information you need before choosing this treatment.
