Finasteride (Propecia): before and after - the results
Male androgenetic alopecia, commonly known as male pattern baldness (MPB), is the most common cause of hair loss in men. It’s estimated that almost 50% of men will develop it by age 50, and 57% of men will develop it by 60. Male pattern baldness can cause your hairline to recede and thin, but it can also result in total baldness if left untreated.
Finasteride is a very effective treatment method for those affected by MPB. It’s also known by the brand name Propecia. At its best, Finasteride can increase the amount of hair on your head and make it thicker. In some cases, it’s only able to prevent further hair loss from happening. A pilot study on men affected by MPB published photos taken before and after Finasteride treatment. There was substantial progress after six months of treatment.
