Most men experience hair loss as they get older, but for some it starts as early as their 20s or 30s. We offer Propecia, a prescription-only hair loss treatment.
If you are over 18 years of age and have adrogenetic alopecia (which includes):
symetrical regular hair loss
hair loss is not in irregular patches
the scalp is not inflammed, reddened or itchy
no associated weight loss
Then you may qualify for this service.
What is hairloss?
Hair loss - in the form of male pattern baldness - is a genetic disorder. Hair follicles convert testosterone into another hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Affected hair follicles, typically at the sides and the top of the head, become more sensitive to DHT, which causes the hair follicles to shrink, weaken and eventually die, preventing them from regrowing hair.
How our Hair Loss Treatment works
Our hair loss treatment Propecia contains finasteride, and works as a long-term method of decreasing the effect of DHT on hair follicles. It has a high success rate in those with mild to moderate hair loss, but may need to be taken for several months before any effect is seen.
