Avoid Medication Side Effects

Here’s Why You Need to Choose New Jersey Hair Transplants

Topical Medications

Frustration Of Male Pattern Hair Loss

If you know the frustration of male pattern hair loss, then you probably also know that hair loss solutions are often marketed as extremely promising and even miracle cures.

In New Jersey, hair transplants remain the safest, effective and long-term solution for hair restoration, however topical medications have been sold and used widely in North America in recent years, with mixed results.

Topical Finasteride, also known as Propecia, is one such medication that has been reported as successful in up to 80% of patients but carries a long list of reported side effects.

Do Not Carry The Risk Of Side Effects

Unfortunately, many websites, some clinics and doctors suggest to prospective patients that topical finasteride has no real side effects. This is completely false because there are a range of possible negative effects which can result from this medication. Approved by the FDA, topical Finasteride comes with a long list of warnings because the drug can be absorbed systemically into the bloodstream. For people who are prone to certain medical conditions, this can carry serious consequences. Hair transplant in New Jersey does not involve the use of drugs or even general anesthetic so it does not carry the risk of side effects that hair loss medications do.

Before it was marketed as a hair loss treatment, finasteride was developed to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) which means prostate gland enlargement. Its method of action is through blocking dihydrotestosterone, (DHT) an androgen hormone. Sensitivity to DHT can lead to androgenic alopecia and prostate enlargement in men.

Side Effects

Finasteride should not be taken by anyone with a history of liver disease or impaired function, urethral restriction or by a woman or child. This medication can be absorbed through the skin and has been linked to increased risk of prostate cancer.

Side effects may include

  • Impotence
  • Loss of libido
  • Inability to achieve an orgasm
  • Swelling of hands and feet
  • Tenderness and swelling of breast tissue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Dizziness or loss of balance
  • Headaches
  • Nasal discharge

There are many surgical and non-surgical hair restoration options available to men and women today however few of them have been proven safe or effective. Too often, people are convinced to spend large amounts of money on gimmicks that don’t work, or they do see moderate success with a medication but suffer the sexual problems that come with it. Another drawback of medication compared with New Jersey hair transplants is the temporary benefits they offer. Once you discontinue use of the medications, any results gained will disappear and hair loss will progress.

Today’s permanent, safe and long-lasting hair transplant methods are minimally invasive and create natural-looking, real hair growth. Though temporary fixes such as supplements and medications for hair loss may seem to be a more affordable option, in the long run, a better investment for your hair and your health is the natural result of a hair transplant.
