About

Hair loss is the formation of bald spots on the crown of the head, near the temples, on the forehead or in other places. Hormonal damage to hair follicles is the most common cause. It can start as early as your twenties, or much later in life.
COMMON QUESTIONS
Can hair loss be treated?

If treated early, it’s possible to stop or even reverse this hair loss. But, at a certain point, the hair follicle becomes damaged to a point where hair loss is permanent. Our providers may prescribe finasteride to treat your hair loss. This medication helps maintain the hair you have or even regrow some hair you have lost. Our providers may prescribe minoxidil topical solution 5% (generic Rogaine). This helps to slow or even stop hair loss at the crown of the head. Finally, our providers may recommend the use of finasteride combined with minoxidil topical solution 5%.

How long does it take for hair loss treatment to work?

Finasteride and minoxidil take three to four months of daily use to start seeing visible effects. It can take up to a year to see the greatest results. As long as you don’t experience side effects, it’s best to continue the medication for one full year. To sustain benefits, you have to continue using hair loss medication. If you stop, your hair loss may return.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to complete an online visit?

We need you to complete the online assessment to ensure the medications are safe and effective.

How does finasteride work?

Most hair loss is due to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT forms when testosterone meets an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. Finasteride works by blocking the ability of 5-alpha reductase to convert testosterone to DHT.

How does minoxidil work?

The current belief is that minoxidil works by increasing blood flow to the hair follicle. This helps more nutrients to get to the follicle, which can support hair growth. Apply Minoxidil to the scalp daily.
