Are Medical Hair Loss Treatments Like Propecia (Finasteride) and Rogaine (Minoxidil) Really Effective?
Hair loss sufferers wishing to slow the progress of androgenic alopecia (genetic balding) and regrow hair have very few credible options. Currently, the only clinically proven and FDA approved medical hair loss treatments for male pattern balding are Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride). Of the two drugs, only Rogaine is approved for use by female hair loss sufferers.
Here, recommended hair transplant surgeon Dr. Bill Parsley shares the impressive 1 year results of medical hair restoration:
Patient is a 38 y/o male with a rapidly developing Norwood Scale VI baldness pattern before medication.
While not full, he is very satisfied and is going to hold off on hair transplantation for now.
While this patient clearly had an exceptional result from these hair growth treatments, it’s important to note that results will vary. The only way to know if they will work well for you is to give them a try. The good news is that, in generic form, hair loss treatments are quite affordable.
If you are suffering from genetic hair loss, talk to your hair restoration physician about which medical treatments are right for you.
