Non-surgical Hair Replacement Boston
Currently only two hair restoration medications, namely Minoxidil (Rogaine®) and Finasteride (Propecia®) have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after appropriate double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials. Many products are advertised and marketed with a claim for hair restoration, but few have ever been subjected to the clinical trials necessary with proven safety and efficacy.
Minoxidil (commonly known as Rogaine®) — Available over-the-counter in 2% and 5% strengths. When effective, Minoxidil can slow hair loss and stimulate new hair growth.
Custom Compounds – A specially formulated topical solution that is exclusively available at NE Hair. It is a combination of 10% Minoxidil and Finasteride or 10% Minoxidil alone, depending on your individual treatment plan, in a convenient topical spray bottle.
Finasteride (commonly referred to as Propecia) – A prescription oral medication that prevents or slows hair loss by blocking the formation of DHT (dihydrotestosterone). While Finasteride is mainly a treatment option for men, some women may benefit under certain conditions.
Dutasteride – Typically used to treat an enlarged prostate, Dutasteride is also an effective prescription oral medication for treating hair loss in men.
