Common Treatments

If you google “hair loss treatment” what’s the first thing that comes up? Minoxidil and Finasteride treatment, and with good reason. These drugs are great for tackling hair loss, with plenty of evidence to support them. Let’s look at how they work:

Minoxidil, while not fully understood, is believed to have a triple effect:

  • Researchers believe that the drug keeps your hair follicles in the anagen, or “growth”, phase of their life cycle which promotes growth of thicker & healthier hair.

  • Hair follicles also enter the growth phase earlier, furthering this effect of increased hair growth.

  • Minoxidil also works as a vasodilator – which means it causes your blood vessels to expand and increase blood flow. The better the blood supply to a tissue the healthier the tissue, including your scalp & hair!

Finasteride works to increase levels of testosterone:

  • By blocking an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase, which breaks down testosterone. This increases testosterone, which in turn increases hair growth. A bonus effect is a reduced prostate size in men, which has been shown to substantially reduce prostate cancer risk!

  • This treatment is currently only approved for men, post-menopausal women, and potentially women who have no plans to have children. This is because Finasteride can cause severe complications in pregnancy.

  • A topical formulation is currently in research and could possibly be suitable for pre-menopausal women.

Emerging Treatment

If you look a little further, you’ll find a hair loss remedy called “PRP”. This stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, which other than being a mouthful is also a powerful tissue-regenerative treatment. This treatment has garnered a lot of attention recently, and scientific research is showing that it is a promising treatment for hair loss – even more effective than Minoxidil. But how does it work?

PRP harnesses the power of platelets for a triple-effect on hair loss:

  • Platelets contain many molecules called growth factors, which have a powerful effect on tissue regeneration.

  • PRP is shown to keep your hair follicles in the anagen phase of their life cycle for longer. This allows your hair more time to grow thicker and healthier.

  • Resting hair follicles are pushed into the growth phase earlier. This results in the growth of hair that has not grown for a long time, giving the appearance of new hair growth.

  • New blood vessels are produced in and around the hair follicles of your scalp. These new blood vessels mean a better blood supply, a better blood supply means healthier tissue, and a healthier tissue means healthier hair.

The Revolutionary Combination Therapy

Did you notice any similarities between PRP and Minoxidil? It appears that PRP and Minoxidil have the same effects, with different mechanisms of action. Could this mean they could work together for an even better hair regeneration effect? Logic would say yes, and it’s looking like that logic is backed by science.

PRP has been found to be more effective than Minoxidil in recent studies, but their combination has been found to be the best. The result is more hair, thicker hairs, and a greater proportion of hair follicles in the growth phase.

While this combination therapy is available and has been for a little while, we don’t think it has garnered the reputation it deserves just yet. Not only is it proving to be more effective than current standalone hair restoration treatments, but it is also available for everyone.
