Male pattern hair loss i.e. a receding hair line or slow balding at the crown, is the most common problems of hair loss. It is typically a continuation process and if neglected, the hair loss is likely to continue. Well it’s true that hair loss may be a family problem. But researchers believe that it is due to a chemical called dihydrotestosterone or just DHT in short, is the main cause of male pattern hair loss.
Due to the increase in DHT, the hair follicles on the head shrink and causes hair fall and if somehow this DHT is decreased, there can be complete halt for further hair loss. In this circumstance, Propecia has shown some outstanding promise. FDA trials proved that 2 out of 3 men tested with Propecia regrew hair and the third one hasn’t experienced any further hair loss.
Propecia is a suitable remedy for treating mild and moderate hair loss. It not only slows down hair loss but improves hair growth as well. Most important of all, it works only on scalp and doesn’t affect the hairs on the other parts of the body.
Though the results may vary for each individual, but normally, one may begin to see improvement within 3 months of its usage. Before taking the medicine inform you doctor if you are suffering from liver disease. For, in that case you may not be allowed to take Propecia, or you may be prescribed a lower dose. However, mild side affects like decreased libido, stomach upset, swelling of your lips and tongue may affect your health in the beginning of the course, but tends to cease as the body gets used to it.
