What is hair loss?

Hair loss is where your hair starts to thin or fall out. For men, the most common types of hair loss are male pattern baldness and balding. It affects 30% of men over the age of 30, over 50% of men over 50, & 70% of men over the age of 60.

Approximately 6.5 million men in the UK have experienced male pattern hair loss.

Hair loss is also a condition that affects women too. As with men, female patten baldness is the most commin type and is thought to be genetic.

It's not unusual for hair loss to have an impact on a person's mental health. But the important thing to remember is male pattern baldness treatments are out there. Not only can they help prevent further hair loss, but they can also promote new growth.

How can hair loss affect you?

In a physcial sense, hair loss is nothing to be concerned about. It happens naturally every day. Sometimes, however, it just doesn't grow back - as is the case with male pattern baldness, for example. But there are occasions where hair loss could be the sign of and underlying condition. 

Often, the impact of hair loss is felt emotionally. For both men and women, losing hair can be distressing. It can change the way you look, which can be tough to take. Therefore, we provide medication to prevent and stop balding - to reduce the impact it may have on you.

Are hair loss treatments right for you?

There are many ways you can deal with hair loss. From wigs to vitamins for hair loss, everyone will have a preference. But what Rightdose can do is draw on the knowledge of our pharmacists and GPs to find a course of medical hair loss treatment that meets your needs.

Each person is different and what's right for you might not be right for someone else. But that's something we are here to help you with. And you can find out today by taking a free assessment to see what your treatment options might be.


What causes hair loss?

The most common cause of hair loss is your generic make-up. If male pattern baldness runs in your family, it could well affect you too. It happens when you have a hypersensitivity to the hormone dlhydrotestosterone (DHT), which is found in the scalp. This generally causes hair to grow for a noticeably shorter length of time in the hair production cycle compared to normal. 

Other potential causes of hair loss can include:

  • Radiation therapy
  • Illness
  • Hormonal changes
  • Side effects of a medication
  • Trauma or stress

Is a hair loss cure available?

There isn't a cure for male pattern hair loss. But there are prescription hair loss tablets and anti-balding medication - like Finasteride and Propecia. These can help slow hair loss, and - in some cases - promote renewed hair growth.

For non-hereditary causes, it is possible the hair loss is temporary - and it may grow back.

How is hair loss diagnosed?

In the case of male pattern baldness, the condition can usually be diagnose by looking at the hair loss. Asking questions about any family history of the condition can also be a strong indicator. But an examination of the scalp and follicies can confirm this. It cam also be better to find out for sure sooner rather than later so you can consider your hair loss treatment needs. 

If your doctor thinks there may be another cause, a biopsy may be recommended for diagnosis. 


About Propecia

Propecia is a head hair loss treatment that can reduce hair loss and increase hair growth. It has the active ingredient Finasteride and won't affect hair growth on the other parts of the body.

For some men, follicies can be damaged and cause hair loss due to hypersensitivity to DHT. The role of Propecia is to function as a DHT blocker and reduce levels in the body to reverse balding.

You can take one prescription hair loss tablet daily - but it can take 3-6 months before you see any results. If you stop taking Propecia your hair will revert to its previous state in 6-12 months.

Finasteride and Propecia should not be taken by women or children. It is vital that pregnant women do not touch crushed or broken Finasteride or Propecia tablets.

Read the Propecia patient information leaftlet.



About Finasteride

Finasteride is the generic form of Propeica. It's a head hair loss treatment that can reduce loss and promote growth - but without affecting other parts of the body.

It works just like Propecia - blocking DHT and reducing levels of the horome in the body. The aim is to reverse the effects of balding. Read the Finasteride patient information leaflet.



Are these hair loss treatments safe?

Propecia and Finasteride are perfectly safe hair loss treatments for ment. The main thing to remember is you must follow the safety instructions and don't exceed the dosage.

But women and children should not use this treatment for hair loss. It is also essential that pregnant women do not come into contact with the tablets.
