For many years, there have been standards for the topical and oral treatment of hair loss and baldness:
- Minoxidil: is a vasodilator substance that began to be used in the treatment of hypertension and that incidentally, it was seen as a side effect of hair growth in bald persons.
It’s often used alone or in combination with other active substances to stimulate hair growth and slow baldness. It’s most effective in people under 40 years of age whose hair loss is recent.
- Finasteride: is a drug that is used for the treatment of prostate hypertrophy and has a very satisfactory result for stopping or delaying androgenetic alopecia. Young men who take the medication in the early years of hair loss avoid becoming bald like their predecessors.
