Medical Treatment For Hair Loss

  1. Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar): A pill taken once daily that blocks the effects of testosterone on hair growth. Testosterone is a hormone found in higher concentrations in men. Finasteride is not currently used for the treatment of hair loss in women.
  2. Minoxidil (Rogaine, Loniten): A medication you rub directly onto your scalp. This medication enlarges hairs and makes them grow for a longer period.

  • It works for both men and women.
  • It works best for balding at the top and back of the head and less well for the front area of the scalp.
  • Stopping this medication can result in loss of the hair that developed during its use.

Hair Transplant process

Hair Transplant process

Hair transplant: A doctor takes plugs of hair from areas on your scalp where hair is thick and puts them on areas where your hair is thin.

These hair plugs can have a bothersome checkerboard appearance.

Follicular transplants, which move individual hairs from one place to another, are replacing hair plug transplants.

Scalp rotation: A doctor moves a piece of your scalp that has good hair growth to an area of poor growth. The procedure is effective in children, but adults do not respond well to this type of treatment.

Next Steps


During treatment for hair loss, you can expect to return to the doctor periodically to determine the response to treatment and to monitor for side effects from the medications being used.
