Men who have reached the age of 40s or 50s usually experience hair loss. But some men, who are in their teen ages, 20s or 30s, can also experience hair loss. The hair loss experienced by men is also known as male pattern baldness. It has been given the name male pattern baldness as it follows a particular pattern. It starts with you losing your hair on the temples, followed by losing your hair on the crown until the two areas meet. When these two areas meet, they form a horseshoe pattern on your scalp. Younger men who lose their hair and sport a bald look are often embarrassed by this condition. It can also cause development of low self-confidence and esteem in a man.

How can hair loss be treated?

Hair loss can be treated with the help of a number of treatment options that are available on the market. You can try the over the counter pills such as Relenza that are available on the market. You can also try out the natural supplements and other creams that are available on the market. The only disadvantage of using such supplements and creams is that there is limited clinical data to support their effectiveness. Apart from these, and usually preferred as the last option, are the surgical treatments. Three major types of surgical treatments can be used in order to treat hair loss. First is a transplant, which involves taking healthy hair from the back of your hair and moving them in front.

The second surgical method is scalp reduction, which involves stretching a portion of your scalp over the area, which has thick hair growth. Another option is flap surgery, in which a healthy scalp is stretched over an area with hair loss. You can also use the popular and the only prescription medication available for treating hair loss, known as Propecia. It has been proven to be almost 99% effective in treating hair loss in men, and in some cases have also been found to bring about re-growth of new hair in men. This prescription hair loss treatment is available in the dosage strength of 1 mg, which can be bought either through a doctor’s prescription or through any of the registered online clinics.

Some information on Propecia

propecia works with the help of its active ingredient finasteride. This active ingredient helps by preventing the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone, the chemical which causes hair loss in men. It also provides your hair follicles enough time to heal, which results in the re-growth of new hair. This finasteride pill is supposed to be taken once on a daily basis, either with or without food. This pill can be taken safely by men who are 18 years old or above. Although this prescription hair loss treatment is well tolerated by men, some can experience side effects of the pill as well. The usual side effects that a man can experience are a decrease in libido or sex drive, impotence or erectile dysfunction and ejaculation problems.
