Propecia for Male Pattern Baldness

Hair Transplant and Restoration Center

Propecia, or Finasteride, is a powerful weapon for fighting male pattern baldness because it prevents the conversion of testosterone to DHT. It’s very effective for slowing down genetic hair loss, and thousands of men use it without ever experiencing adverse side effects. Still, treatment with Propecia does involve an element of risk. Dr. Gray can help you evaluate Finasteride and your other options to make a definitive decision as to what solution is right for you. Should you move forward with treatment with Propecia, Dr. Gray is qualified to prescribe the oral medication and monitor your results.

Propecia, or Finasteride, is the only oral medication to be approved by the FDA for the treatment of male pattern baldness. It is one of just 3 FDA-approved treatments for men’s hair loss. Propecia has proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of male pattern baldness, especially on the top and middle front of the head. It works by preventing the conversion of testosterone into DHT (Dihydrotestosterone).

The role of DHT in male pattern baldness

The key mechanism in male pattern baldness is the adverse effect of DHT molecules on genetically sensitized hair follicles. The DHT causes a shortened life cycle of the hair follicles and miniaturization such that the individual hairs are thin, small and colorless. Over time, genetically vulnerable hair follicles will exhaust their predetermined number of lifecycles. When a significant number of follicles have disappeared, visible alopecia or baldness becomes apparent. Since men are born with all the follicles they’ll ever have, it’s crucial to preserve as many of them as possible. This is one of the reasons that early treatment of male pattern baldness is so important.

Propecia at HT&RC

HT&RC is devoted to delivering clinically proven solutions to our patients, and Propecia fits that description. If you’re considering taking Propecia, our first priority is to help you weigh the benefits and the risks. Dr. Gray will first diagnose the cause of your hair loss before considering any surgical or non-surgical solution. If you do have male pattern baldness that would likely respond well to Propecia, he will help you to identify all of your options and to make an informed decision. One of the benefits of Propecia treatment at HT&RC is that Dr. Gray is able to both prescribe the medication and monitor your response to it.

Propecia and hair transplantation

For certain men, Propecia is a great complement to hair transplantation surgery. It is certainly an option for any man who has a great deal of growing hair that could be retained. It’s a possible consideration for those for whom hair transplantation is not an option. Finasteride can also prevent hair loss up to and including the crown. It is a great adjunct to hair transplant in slowing down normal hair loss.

    Alopecia Awareness Month: Trichotillomania

    This September, let's increase awareness of a specific type of alopecia, Trichotillomania. Trichotillomania is an obsessive compulsive disorder that causes people to pull out their own hair.  At the root of an obsessive-compulsive disorder is a mental disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions) and behaviors that drive them to do something over and over (compulsions).  Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts. This disorder often begins in childhood, commonly affects women more than men, and is estimated to affect 1 - 4% of the population. It is also estimated that as many as 2.5 million Americans experience trichotillomania at some point in their lifetimes.
