Finasteride Hair Loss Treatments

Many men experience hair fall as they age. But hair loss can also occur when you’re younger, getting progressively worse as the years go by. This is a very possible reality, especially for men with a genetic history of male pattern baldness. Thankfully, there is a treatment available that can help you reverse hair loss and regain your luscious crop of hair.

At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine, we use Finasteride as one of our main methods of treating severe hair loss. Contact our clinic in Greenville, South Carolina for more information about the treatment and to check if it is right for you.  

What is Finasteride and what does it do?

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a hormone found in both men and women (although it is in higher concentration in men). It is the hormone responsible for prostatic hypertrophy, a condition where the prostate abnormally enlarges in size. DHT is also responsible for male pattern baldness.

Finasteride belongs to a class of drugs that are called DHT blockers. When used, Finasteride limits the amount of DHT in your body, thereby reducing the chances of both prostate enlargement and hair loss.

Of course, the amount of Finasteride to be taken differs for prostate issues and hair loss problems. Our experts at Genesis Lifestyle Medicine are specifically trained to address severe hair fall with the use of Finasteride.

How does Finasteride work?

The 5a-Reductase enzyme is responsible for catalyzing DHT from testosterone hormones. DHT has the ability to reduce the size of your hair follicles and shorten your hair’s lifecycle. When it works on your hair, DHT causes your hair to fall out much faster, even when it is still healthy. The DHT also slows down the growth of new hair follicles, making it very difficult for you to re-grow your hair.

Finasteride targets the 5a-Reductase enzyme and inhibits its production, ensuring that there isn’t sufficient 5a-Reductase enzyme in your body to produce the DHT. When the level of DHT is less in your body, your hair fall also reduces. The absence of DHT also ensures your hair lives for the entire duration of its natural lifecycle and new hair grows back on time.

Is Finasteride safe to use?

Although Finasteride is safe to use for most, some people do experience a few side effects. Finasteride has a reaction to certain medications and it is necessary that you consult with our team of highly-experienced specialists before you undergo this hair loss treatment. It is also recommended that you keep us informed about any medical conditions or allergies you have, so we can be mindful of your safety during the treatment.

Our experts will evaluate your medical condition, identify any health risks that Finasteride may pose to you and then determine whether this is a safe course of treatment for you or not. If Finasteride doesn’t work for you, don’t worry. We also offer the PRP hair treatment which is a highly-safe and effective procedure that absolutely anyone can undergo.

What happens during the treatment?

Finasteride is prescribed as an oral medication for hair loss. It is particularly beneficial for people with androgenic alopecia. So, when you come into our Greenville, South Carolina clinic for a consult, we determine the dosage of Finasteride you need. We typically recommend only one 1-mg tablet each day, for a period of 3-4 months. By the end of this period you will begin to notice a difference in the amount of hair that sheds and how long it takes for your hair to grow back. We may increase the duration of the dosage by a few more months depending on your bespoke results. Each person’s body reacts slightly differently to Finasteride and your treatment time will differ accordingly.

Our priority at Genesis Lifestyle Medicine is your comfort and wellbeing. We monitor the results of regular Finasteride consumption to ensure you get the results you seek. Contact our Greenville, South Carolina facility for more information.

Please note: The Finasteride treatment for hair loss has received FDA approval only for the treatment of hair loss in men and we offer this treatment only to our male clients.
