Finpecia delays the progression of AGA (hair cycle). The mechanism of Propecia is delayed progression of male pattern alopecia in adults. The same goes for Finpecia.
So, non-adult men should not take Finpecia. Finpecia is classified as a type II 5a-reductase inhibitor.
Finpecia inhibits the acidity of DHT, which is the cause of AGA (hair cycle). Hair has a lifespan and a cycle, so it is called the hair cycle.
The cycle of old hair falling out and new hair coming out is repeated.
The cycle of hair is divided into the initial period, the growing period, and the resting period, which is usually about 6 years.
It has the longest growing period and makes the hair long and thick.
DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is the main causative agent of thin hair and short AGA (hair cycle), and more DHT than usual was found on the scalp of thin hair.
DHT is produced when the male hormone testosterone is converted by the 5a-reductase enzyme.
When the generated DHT binds to the DHT receptor present in the dermal papilla cells, it sends a signal to the growing hair and transitions to the degenerative or resting phase.
As a result, the hair becomes thin in the degenerative period and falls out before it becomes long and thick, so the hair becomes thin, thin, and short hair.
Finpecia inhibits the 5a-reductase type II, which acts during DHT production and inhibits DHT production.
By restraining the production of DHT and restoring the hair cycle to its original state to some extent, the thinned hair sweats,
and the hair in the resting period also becomes the growth period, and downy hair begins to appear in the area where the thin hair grows, causing AGA (hair cycle) ) To improve.
If you take Finpecia, you can see the effect of hair loss treatment about 98%, but it has been reported that about 2% are ineffective.
In addition, about 40% of them are maintaining the status quo, but if you want a little more hair growth or are not satisfied with the Finpecia effect, you can consider two methods.
If taking Finpesia
does not work
1. Change the hair loss treatment from Finpecia to Dutasteride.
Dutasteride is a drug that has been approved as a treatment for prostatic hyperplasia, and has also been used and approved as a hair loss treatment.
Although it is a drug developed later than Propecia, it is classified as a 5a-reductase inhibitor. Finpecia inhibits only type II, whereas Dutasteride inhibits type I and type II 5a-reductase.
Therefore, it shows about 1.6~1.7 times better hair loss treatment effect than Finpecia.
2. Take Finpecia and minoxidil together.
It is known that minoxidil improves blood flow by vasodilation and activates hair cells, causing cell division to promote hair growth.
There are internal medicines for external use, and internal medicines (pills) show better hair loss treatment effects.
Taking Finpecia and minoxidil together is very effective and can have a hair loss treatment effect. There are 2.
5mg, 5mg and 10mg doses of minoxidil, but if you are taking it for the first time, it is recommended to start with 2.5mg or 5mg.
Finpecia restores the hair cycle to its original state as it suppresses the acidity of DHT, the causative agent of AGA.
When the hair cycle is normalized, the hair that has transitioned to the resting period enters the growth phase and grows back into downy hair.
Minoxidil promotes the activity of the degraded hair cells by improving the blood flow to the scalp and makes the hair grow into thick and long hair.
The combination of two types of AGA treatments with Finpecia and minoxidil mechanism of action can expect high hair growth for many people.
