Killing two birds - female acne and hair loss - with single stone

Although genetic baldness seems to be mainly a problem that affects adult males it is also very common to females. About 25% of adult females suffer from hereditary baldness. Their balding pattern is quite different from men since women lose their hair around their whole scalp and therefore their hair loss is diffuse and less apparent. This balding pattern makes it very difficult to identify healthy hair follicles that are going to be resistant to future miniaturization and which could be used for hair surgery. That said women usually are poor candidates for hair transplantation. In addition, women cannot use Propecia pill, the best hair loss treatment for male patients as its active substance finasteride could seriously harm the male fetus in female body if the woman was pregnant. Secondly, finasteride was in human tests not found to be an effective treatment for female pattern baldness at all. So the options for females are limited but existent.

There is an oral medication called spironolactone sold under the trade name Aldactone. Spironolactone acts in female bodies in a similar fashion to finasteride in men so that it reduces the levels of available dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in their blood stream which causes irreparable harm to the hair follicles. In addition to that spironolactone blocks receptors sites at hair follicles and so protects them from the harmful activity of DHT. Aldactone is known mainly as a diuretic with antiandrogen properties but it is also used to treat hormonal acne in adult women. Therefore, women suffering from hereditary loss of hair as well as those affected with adult acne order Aldactone as it is an inexpensive, safe and effective treatment for these two health conditions. Since hair loss and acne are the so-called lifestyle conditions and health insurance companies do not cover the cost of their treatment it makes sense to buy spironolactone online as it significantly reduces the cost of the treatment. Aldactone must be then taken once a day, every single day for as long as you wish to keep and re-grow hair and it must be used in combination with some contraceptive in order to avoid pregnancy and resulting damages to the unborn baby.

Alternative male hair loss remedy

Since the discovery of the main cause of hereditary baldness which is the naturally occurring metabolite of the male hormone testosterone chemically called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) we finally know how to fight this widespread condition and a search for medicinal and natural drugs that either inhibit production of this metabolite or block its activity at receptor sites in hair follicles has begun. The first medicinal drug which got approved for the treatment of male pattern hair loss was finasteride - Propecia. Millions of male hair loss patients use this pill daily to halt their hair loss and regrow lost hair. However, finasteride was later found to lose its effectiveness after prolonged use.

Another anti-androgen acting as DHT inhibitor emerged as a prospective hair loss treatment recently and it was subjected to all three phases of clinical testing for treating hair loss in male patients. It successfully completed all three phases of clinical tests and now it awaits approval by the FDA. It acts by the same mode of action as finasteride but since it is a dual DHT inhibitor, blocking both iso-forms of DHT, it is a more effective weapon in fight against male hereditary hair loss. In addition, it was shown to help protect hair follicles also in the frontal scalp area where hair is needed most. Many hair restoration physicians prescribe dutasteride (trade name of the original medication is Avodart) to their male hair loss patients who do not see satisfactory results from Propecia. Since hair loss treatment is not included on the list of health conditions that health insurances firms wish to support by reimbursing their treatment costs, patients must buy Avodart dutasteride online in order to save on expenses on acquiring this medication as it has to be taken for the rest of the patient’s life.

As is the case with all anti-androgens their positive effects will go away once you drop the treatment. Avodart (dutasteride) may be a bit more pricy than finasteride (Propecia) but for many patients it is the only existing option to save their hair while waiting for the ultimate cure for hereditary hair loss that is not expected to emerge earlier than in 10-15 years. One thing that Avodart can do, that no other hair loss treatment can, is to help you save your hair also in the front of your scalp. Frontal hair is known to be the most difficult to safe, let alone to regrow, so if you really wish to prevent needing a hair surgery to restore your lost hair you better use Avodart.
