<p>Restoring the hair lost due to hereditary factors is the dream of many hair loss sufferers. Until not too long ago, the only effective and authentic-looking methods of reversing hair loss were non-surgical cover-ups. It was only with the advent of follicular unit transplantation and the discovery of the true cause of baldness – the harmful effects of dihydrotestosterone (<span class="caps">DHT</span>) on our hair follicles – that the hair-loss sufferer's chances of reversing hair loss naturally have greatly improved.</p> <p>The three best weapons in the fight against hair loss today are the two <span class="caps">FDA</span>-approved medicinal drugs – finasteride (Propecia) and minoxidil (Rogaine) and hair surgery, the follicular unit transplantation and, especially, the follicular unit extraction technique.

<p>At the moment, there are only two medicinal treatments that have been approved by the <span class="caps">FDA</span> (Food and Drug Administration) in the US for treating hair loss – topical minoxidil (trade name Rogaine) and oral finasteride (Propecia). Topical minoxidil is suitable for both sexes, whereas finasteride can only be prescribed to male patients.

Finasteride is an antiandrogen that was first used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (<span class="caps">BPH</span>), also known as prostate enlargement. It acts by inhibiting conversion of the male hormone testosterone to the follicle-harming dihydrotestosterone (<span class="caps">DHT</span>). The discovery of finasteride's positive effects on hair growth led to finding the true cause of hereditary baldness, which is the harmful attacks of <span class="c...

<p>Concealing bald spots is for many patients affected with baldness the only existing option to regain the appearance of a full head of hair, as hair regrowth treatments only work for some hair loss conditions.
