There are a number of hair loss treatments around that have been found to be effective.  There are both prescription and over the counter products available for both men and women. Men are fortunate in that they have a slightly wider range of options than women for problem hair conditions. Below we will try to introduce just a few of the options available.  If you would like to find out which products are the best for your particular hair, please fill out our request for free consultation and we will schedule a time that Dr. Fowler can sit down and privately discuss each option with you. 

FDA Approved Prescription Hair Loss Medicines

Propecia (Finasteride)
Propecia is an FDA approved treatment for men. It works similar to Revivogen in that it reduces the levels of DHT in the scalp. Unlike revivogen, however, propecia is a pill that is available only by prescription. The fact that it is a pill makes it a lot more convenient, although some people prefer more natural approaches.

Generally, it takes about 3 months to a year to see results, although not all hair lost will necessarily grow back. Like all hair loss treatments that have been shown to be effective, propecia needs to be taken for as long as you want a full head of hair. Because the body is constantly producing DHT, any treatments that address DHT need to be taken indefinitely. Scientists at this stage do not know how to cure the fundamental causes of hair loss, they only know how to manage the condition.

FDA Approved Over the Counter Hair Loss Products

Rogaine (Minoxidil)
Rogaine started out its life as a blood pressure medication. Thus, if you have low blood pressure, you may want to check in with your doctor first to see whether rogaine is safe to use, as it was originally used to lower blood pressure.

Rogaine is a topical treatment. It is available without prescription, and dilates the blood vessels, meaning more blood (carrying nutrients and oxygen) can flow to the scalp. It is most effective in treating loss of hair that occurs at the top of the head, in both men and women. It comes in a lotion or spray, and should be applied to the head twice a day.

Oral Contraceptives (OCA)

Other Hair Loss Products

Platelet Rich Plasma
Brief summary of this product.

Revivogen is a natural hair loss treatment that is applied topically. It works by decreasing the levels of DHT in the scalp. DHT is a metabolite of testosterone that is associated with premature loss of hair, as it is found in excess in affected areas.

Like propecia and rogaine, revivogen needs to be used for the rest of your life, essentially. But it does have an advantage in that revivogen will not need to be applied as often in the maintenance phases as it was when the problem of hair loss was being addressed initially. Generally, it takes about one year before this can be done.
