Question: Do hair loss treatment programmes that don’t include Propecia work? Can you get results for male pattern hair loss by just using minoxidil? And do you do minoxidil-only treatment courses?
Answer: Hi Carl. Whilst a combination hair loss treatment programme featuring both Finasteride 1mg and minoxidil is generally likely to get the best results when treating male pattern hair loss, minoxidil-only plans – which are available here – can also produce significant regrowth results.
Firstly, it is important to understand the role that each of these treatments plays in preventing hair loss and regrowing hair; finasteride 1mg (brand names include Aindeem and Propecia) helps to block testosterone from forming DHT which causes balding, whilst minoxidil aids regrowth by stimulating dormant hair follicles into the growth phase.
A comprehensive approach to treating male pattern baldness would comprise finasteride 1mg (often referred to as Propecia which is just one of the brand names this medication goes under), minoxidil and a range of hair growth boosters. However, we have found it is possible for Belgravia clients using high strength minoxidil courses to see results without using finasteride 1mg. Below is a selection of just a few of our Hair Loss Success Stories which feature examples of Belgravia clients who have followed finasteride-free treatment courses.
