What Is Finasteride?

Finasteride is a prescription oral medication for treating androgenetic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness. It is scientifically proven to reverse the effects of male pattern baldness and promote hair growth.

How Does Finasteride Work to Reduce Hair Thinning?

Finasteride belongs to a class of medications called 5 alpha-reductase inhibitors. It works by inhibiting the action of a particular enzyme called-5 alpha-reductase, which converts testosterone into the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT will bind to receptors in your hair follicles and cause them to miniaturize, resulting in scalp hair loss. Dr Paul C Cotterill will recommend the right dosage to help your body reduce the amount of DHT in your bloodstream. This will eventually help slow down hair loss; patients may see significant hair regrowth.

What is Minoxidil?

Minoxidil is a topical medication that stimulates hair growth and can effectively treat hair loss-related conditions, such as alopecia. It is the only over-the-counter ingredient  clinically proven to stop and reverse hereditary hair loss by helping reactivate your inactive hair follicles.

How Does Minoxidil Work?

It increases the blood supply and nutrients to your hair follicles and helps them to get stronger from the roots. There are many stages of hair growth; minoxidil shortens the hair's telogen ( dormant ), phase and causes it to enter the anagen or growing stage. Some evidence even suggests that minoxidil can increase the thickness of the hair.

How Does the Combination Therapy of Minoxidil and Finasteride Work?

Before understanding how these two work together, knowing what causes baldness is important. Both genetic factors and the male hormone DHT cause hair loss by inducing a change in the hair follicles on the scalp. Finasteride works by acting as a DHT blocker- inhibiting the effects of DHT on the follicles. One positive fact about Finasteride is that it doesn’t interfere with Minoxidil. On the other hand, Minoxidil works by stimulating shrunken hair follicles, increasing the blood flow to your scalp, which helps increase the size of follicles and diameter.
