Alopecia Topical Solution for Men

Hair loss can happen at any age due to stress, hormonal changes, heredity, and many other factors. Hair that is thinning or balding can add years to your appearance and reduce your confidence. Dr. Glat offers a variety of hair restoration options, including a compounded topical formulation.

This is a compounded topical prescription used twice daily, containing both Finasteride & Minoxidil. This solution treats male pattern hair loss, and emerging evidence suggests it can help improve hair quality and prevent further hair loss with a lower risk of sexual side effects compared to finasteride pills.

What causes hair loss in men?

Anyone can lose hair on their head, but hair loss is more common in men. As a prevalent problem, it affects 2 out of 3 men by age 35, but there are some highly effective solutions such as this specific compounded formulation.

People commonly lose 50 to 100 hairs daily, which is not noticeable because new hair is growing simultaneously. Hair loss occurs when new hair does not replace the hair that has fallen out, while baldness refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp.

Hair loss is most commonly related to the following factors:

  • Family history, or heredity, causes hair loss which occurs gradually and in predictable patterns such as a receding hairline and bald spots in men
  • Hormonal changes and medical conditions can cause permanent or temporary hair loss, including hormonal changes due to thyroid problems
  • Hair loss can be a side effect of medications, such as those used for cancer, arthritis, depression, heart problems, gout, and high blood pressure
  • Radiation therapy to the head
  • Many people experience temporarily thinning hair several months after a physical or emotional shock
  • Excessive hairstyling, hairstyles that pull your hair tight, hot-oil hair treatments, and permanents can cause hair to fall out
  • If scalp scarring occurs, hair loss could be permanent

What are the signs and symptoms of hair loss?

Hair loss can appear in many different ways depending on the cause. Signs and symptoms of hair loss may include:

  • Gradual thinning on top of the head; in men, hair can begin to recede at the edges of the hairline, developing what is known as a widows peek
  • Gradual thinning appearing as a spiraling pattern developing in the top back of the scalp, known as the crown
  • Experiencing more prominent shedding for prolonged periods of time (ex: additional fall out when showering, notable amount in bathroom sink, or waking up to excess hair on the pillow)

How does Alopecia Topical Solution for Men restore hair?

This easy-to-apply dropper, or spray, tackles male pattern hair loss with two clinically proven ingredients in one. Finasteride for hair loss has been proven to have overwhelmingly positive effects, with most study participants seeing hair stability in 3-6 months and in some cases reattainment of recently lost volume.

Simply put, Finasteride reduces DHT in the scalp. Recent clinical studies suggest that 0.1% topical Finasteride treatment can help prevent further hair loss in men with androgenetic alopecia or male pattern hair loss. Finasteride blocks an enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT, the hormone responsible for weakening hair follicles. 

5% Minoxidil promotes hair growth by activating dormant follicles and encouraging them into a prolonged growth phase, via assisting in additional blood flow to the area known as vasodilation. Minoxidil increases how long follicles stay in the active growth phase, which can help you get new hair and increase the hair density.

What are the Alopecia Topical Solution for Men benefits?

This compounded topical formulation utilizes the combination of Finasteride and Minoxidil, which means you can save time and hair with one simple addition to your morning and evening routine. Utilizing the provided dropper is a quick and easy method of applying the solution directly to the surface of the scalp with even coverage. It goes on clean and dries quickly, resulting in less mess when compared to traditional Minxoidil drops.

Some other notable benefits include:

  • Topical finasteride treatment has a lower side effect profile than when taken as a pill
  • This Alopecia Topical Solution targets multiple concerns at once, such as receding hairline, bald spots, and overall thinning
  • Not available over-the-counter, Alopecia Topical Solution is only available by prescription to ensure maximum safety and efficacy
  • Better hair density after 3 to 6 months of consistent use
  • Twice-daily application is convenient and easy to remember
  • Low risk of side effects

How do I apply Alopecia Topical Solution?

When using Alopecia Topical Solution, carefully read the directions and follow your doctor’s recommendation. Generally, these instructions are as follows:

  • Utilize dropper to apply solution liberally to the scalp directly 
  • Use finger pads to massage the solution into your scalp for 10-20 seconds
  • Ensure you wash your hands with soap and water after each use 
  • Make it part of your routine because you must use it daily to realize the effects of topical finasteride fully. You generally must leave it in for some time, so consider applying it before bedtime and washing it out in the morning.

Because topical finasteride is simple to use but requires several months to see results, you may question whether it works. For many men, it does; however, it is essential to remember that the results aren’t immediate. You will need to consistently use the product for an appropriate time, after which you should see fuller and thicker hair. Remember no change is a good change.
