Hair loss is a natural daily phenomenon, but this shedding of hair cannot be the main cause of hair loss. A loss of 100 hair per day can be considered ‘normal’ not pathologic. But a loss of more than 100 hair per day is worrisome. This unwanted hair loss (Alopecia) is a clinical condition that develops when degenerative processes outpace hair regeneration.
The only FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved pharma drugs for the treatment of alopecia are: 5‑alpha‑reductase type 2 inhibitor Finasteride (Propecia), and Minoxidil. These medications, which differ in mechanism of action and route of administration, are given as monotherapy or as combination therapy.
These drugs often are prescribed for patients undergoing hair-restoration surgery to reduce the amount of transplanted hair required to meet the patient’s objectives and to help the patient maintain a relatively consistent and natural appearance. Although minoxidil and finasteride both retard or stop hair loss and stimulate some hair regrowth, neither medication restores all lost hair or reverses complete baldness.
