Each person that comes into our offices is unique and requires a specialized plan. We offer several different hair loss prevention products to our customers. Below we will explain them in a bit of detail.

Rogaine

Not as popular as it once was, however can now be bought over the counter without a prescription. Rogaine’s active ingredient reinvigorates the hair follicles that are shrinking. Rogaine works in two separate ways. First it revitalizes hair follicles allowing new hair to grow. Secondly it reduces hair loss. Seems to work best in the back of the head or crown. Patients need to rub into the scalp in morning and evening but tend to use it only in the evening since it coats the hair and makes hair greasy. Using the product 1 x per day is not very effective.

Side Effects: Can have a tendency to raise blood pressure.

Propecia

Propecia is the first pill that effectively treats hair loss on the top of the head and the mid-scalp area of men. It works by blocking the formation of DHT. This in turn stops hair follicles from shrinking and cases regrowth 48% of the time.
