In most cases, hair loss is a result of miniaturized hair follicles and a shortened hair growth cycle. In a process called miniaturization, DHT shrinks hair follicles causing strands to reproduce at a slower rate by either shortening the growing phase or lengthening the resting phase. As androgenetic alopecia progresses and DHT continues to adversely affect the follicles, hairs become thinner, more fragile and often lighter in color with each subsequent life cycle. Eventually, the follicles shut down and will no longer produce hair.
One of the causes of hair loss is excess levels of DHT, a modified form of the sex hormone testosterone. Typically, high DHT levels limit the blood supply to hair follicles. DHT blocker targets and blocks DHT formation.
Hair By Dr. Max offers medications to help treat hair loss. Depending on your hair loss, Dr. Max can offer you a prescription DHT blocker in Florida as an oral or topical medication to treat hair loss. This hair growth serum contains the active ingredients finasteride and minoxidil. The former works by inhibiting 5 alpha-reductase, which is the enzyme in the body that converts testosterone to DHT. The latter serves to increase hair growth by reducing the telogen, or resting, phase and triggering the anagen, or growing, stage. In addition, there also has been evidence that minoxidil can increase the thickness of hair follicles. The end result is a fuller, thicker head of hair for many patients, as well as a reduction in the level of hair loss.
These remain the only drugs approved by the FDA specifically for treating hair loss. At Hair By Dr. Max, we can prescribe a DHT blocker for women or men suffering from thinning hair. Dr. Max will consult with you personally and determine the exact solution for your specific needs, whether it is a minoxidil and finasteride topical solution or something else.
