Two of the more popular medications for male pattern hair loss are Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride).
Minoxidil is a vasodilator and was originally used as a treatment for high blood pressure. A physician noted that one of the drug’s side effects was increased growth of existing hairs, though the specifics of how it stimulates hair growth are not entirely clear. Minoxidil, unfortunately, has a number of limitations. People that suffer from scalp diseases, heart problems, blood pressure problems, and kidney and liver problems are strongly advised against using the drug. Propecia, on the other hand, is an oral drug that blocks the enzyme 5-alpha reductase from converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is the hormone responsible for hair miniaturization. The downside of the drug is that it may cause sexual dysfunction in men.
With the limitations of hair loss drugs in mind, Dr. Amiya Prasad has developed Hair Regeneration, a treatment backed by 3-5 years worth of clinical study. The treatment combines extracellular matrix – an advanced stem cell-based wound-healing technology, and platelet-rich plasma derived from the patient’s own blood, to form an effective and safe treatment for hair loss. With this treatment, Dr. Prasad has been able to reverse male pattern hair loss in almost 100% of male patients in a single treatment, without needing additional medical therapy or surgery. Keep in mind that the Hair Regeneration treatment works more effectively on existing viable hairs, which means that it will be the most helpful the earlier one gets treated with it.
