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.
