Hair Loss Solutions
Hair loss can affect both men and women and can have strong emotional and psychological consequences. The causes of hair loss can range from hormonal changes, stress and iron deficiency to fungal infections and medication-induced hair thinning.
At My Skin Pharmacy we offer compounded solutions to promote hair growth and thickness as well as therapies to reduce hair fall or breakage. Most patients see excellent improvements after the first 4-6 weeks.
***Please note that with any of our compounded products, it is required you fill out the Patient Information Form accurately so we can assist in finding the best solution for you!***
Minoxidil has been shown to promote hair thickness as well as dilation of small blood vessels around the scalp to stimulate hair growth. Results can be seen in as little as a couple of weeks however the maximum benefit of this medication is usually visible after some months of consistent use. Pre-treatment state can return within 3-4 months of ceasing treatment.
Finasteride can be used to treat men with male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) to increase hair growth on the scalp and to prevent further hair loss. Androgenetic alopecia often results in a receding hair line and/or balding on the top of the head. These changes typically start to occur in some men in their 20’s and become more common with age.
The condition has been thought to be caused by a combination of family history as well as the production of a particular male hormone, called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Men with male pattern hair loss have more DHT in the balding part of their scalp than in other parts which ultimately results in increased hair loss.
Finasteride lowers the levels of DHT on the scalp and thus can help reverse the balding process. It does not affect hair on other parts of the body. Men with mild to moderate hair loss can expect to get most benefit out of treatment with finasteride.
While commercial brands of finasteride are available, My Skin Pharmacy offers the benefit and convenience of a tailored dose for each patient as well as the benefit of combining herbal and mineral ingredients such as Saw Palmetto and Zinc which are thought to minimise hair loss and promote hair growth.
Niacinamide, commonly known as vitamin B3, is an essential human nutrient. It has scientifically proven to produce positive effects on hair loss including improved blood circulation, reduced scalp inflammation, induced keratin production and is also responsible for DNA repair of hair cells!
Saw Palmetto and Zinc Sulphate
Studies have shown that both finasteride and saw palmetto are effective inhibitors of the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This enzyme is responsible for the conversion of testosterone to DHT (the hormone linked to male pattern baldness).
Zinc is responsible for the protein structure that makes up the hair follicle as well as playing a crucial role in the DNA and RNA production of hair follicle cells leading to healthy thick hair.
Zinc also helps balance out hormone levels, offering an all-round solution to preventing hair loss.
