Propecia helps to quickly make things better during androgenic alopecia and return healthy hair. This is a unique medicine which stops the hair loss and improves the hair growth in men with the high level of the androgenic hormones.
The androgenetic alopecia is considered the most common type of alopecia. More than 90% of cases are related to this type. A cause is a high level of dihydrotestosterone, an androgenic hormone. It breaks the hair follicles, so that hair is thin, fragile, and then it is lost.
None cosmetic product can cure of this type of alopecia. And a surgery gives a temporal effect. Propecia affects not the symptoms of the androgenetic alopecia, but a cause. Its active ingredient Finasteride blocks a production of dihydrotestosterone, so that it stops breaking the hair follicles.
At the same time, Propecia does not provide a bad action on the male body. The drug does not influence on the level of the male and female sexual hormones. The action appears only on certain enzymes responsible for synthesis of dihydrotestosterone.
The action on the main cause of the androgenetic alopecia gives good results in 3 months of the treatment. At first, Propecia stops the hair loss, improves hair follicles, and then the hair growth is restored in places of alopecia.
The process is slow, and a speed of the recovery of hair depends on many factors: age of a man, duration and severity of alopecia, activity of the enzymes synthesizing androgenic hormones.
On the average, the hair growth may be restored within 6-12 months. But some men may need a longer maintaining treatment, and therefore Propecia is prescribed on a regular basis, 9-month-cycle. A break for 3 months helps to find out how the previous cycle is successful and should pills be taken again.
