PROPECIA® is available by prescription is a once-a-day pill developed to treat mild to moderate male pattern hair loss, a hereditary condition that causes receding hairlines, thinning and/or balding on the top and front of the scalp. This product is proven effective for treating hair loss in MEN ONLY.
The active component in PROPECIA® is finasteride, which significantly reduces DHT, a major cause of hair loss, to prevent the affected hair follicles from shrinking any further and allowing hair to regrow.
Nine out of 10 men who took PROPECIA® saw visible results in both a reduction of further hair loss and regrowth of hair. Healthy hair usually grows about half an inch each month, so results may not appear for several months. If there is no improvement within one year, further treatment is unlikely to be effective. However, most men reported an increase in scalp hair within the first 12 months and enjoyed continuing improvement throughout treatment. For some men, PROPECIA® also slowed further hair loss.
