What is alopecia?

Alopecia is another name that refers to male pattern hair loss. Normally, one hair grows from each hair follicle for about three years. After this time, it is shed and is closely followed by a new hair growing from the same follicle.

For men with male pattern hair loss, the hair follicles become smaller over time and each hair is thinner and falls out sooner than previously. Eventually, this can lead to hair follicles so small that the hair does not reach the skin surface.

The main cause behind this change in the hair follicles is an androgenic hormone called dihydrotestosterone. It is for this reason that this hormone is the target for drugs to treat alopecia.

When the hair has been gone for extended periods of time, the hair may become permanently lost hence timely treatment is beneficial.Male Pattern Hair Loss

How does Propecia work?

The active component of Propecia, Finasteride, works to inhibit an enzyme in the body called 5-alpha-reductase. This enzyme usually converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, the more potent androgen that has a negative effect on hair growth.

As a result of using Propecia, the levels of the dihydrotestosterone hormone are lower and a positive effect can be seen on the maintenance of hair and hair growth of men who suffer from male pattern hair loss.

How long does it take to see results?

With regular Propecia treatment you may begin to see the results within a few months, although it could take up to a year to notice the full benefit. It is important that you continue treatment long enough to see the results on male pattern hair loss, as the improvement won’t occur overnight.

If you haven’t noticed a benefit after using Propecia regularly for one year or more, further treatment is unlikely to benefit and it is recommended to stop use.

If you decide to stop treatment with Propecia, you will likely lose any hair growth gained in the previous 12 months of treatment. It is recommended to discuss your options and the best solution for you with your doctor.
