TOPICAL FINASTERIDE TREATMENT FOR HAIR LOSS
Oral finasteride (Propecia®) is a commonly used drug-based treatment for hair loss, however, it can be associated with significant and unfortunate side effects. Common side effects associated with this form of medication can be - reduced libido, sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, and even male based breast cancer.
Topical finasteride is however as a NEW and exciting option that can be used in conjunction with other treatments like platelet rich plasma (PRP), but with much fewer side effects as it is applied with topical application, so avoids this systemic side effects as with oral application. Furthermore, topical finasteride has clinically proven, evidence-based, scientific data to show similar therapeutic benefits when compared with standard oral finasteride.
In topical form - our treatment is a combination of Finasteride, Minoxidil and Retinoic acid, which have been shown to increase the overall efficacy of maximising hair growth, in addition to lowering the side effects with are commonly associated with finasteride (Propecia®) and clinically proven to increase hair growth.
. It contains the following active ingredients:
1. TOPICAL FINASTERIDE
3. RETIONIC ACID
People suffering from hair loss ideally want the effects of reduced DHT, but only in the affected area which is the scalp.
Research shows potential for achieving this but unfortunately is not approved by the FDA. Now, finasteride, is FDA approved, but can it achieve the same results?
A study in 2009 comparing the therapeutic effects of finasteride gel and tablet in treatment of the androgenetic alopecia found that the results identified that the therapeutic effects of both finasteride gel and finasteride tablet were relatively similar to each other. Furthermore, this study in 2009 carried out a 16-month trial on 52 patients with using a 0.005% finasteride solution. and found that - both hair regrowth and balding areas reduction, was encouraging, with the absence of either any evidence of percutaneous absorption of finasteride or local/systemic untoward effects.
Our topical finasteride is specifically and optimally formulated with the correct and specific ingredients from evidence-based trials.
Our formulas main ingredients consist of:
1) Topical finasteride 0.1% / 1mg in 1ml
2) Minoxidil high strength
3) Retinol .025%
The inclusion of Retinoic Acid promotes the usage and facilitation of minoxidil and finasteride (more information).
We have different program options available with clinic visits and ongoing daily treatment. Options may include Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP/PRF) and mesotherapy.
Strict attention to side effects should be adopted and valued. It is therefore of extreme importance that all individuals interested in this treatment fully understand any associated side effects. It is the patient's responsibility to make sure they fully understand and appreciate any associated side effects, prior to undergoing treatment.
