Hair loss medication
When it comes to hair loss there are a few different treatments on offer, many clinics might offer you hair loss medication in a bid to stop your hair loss. There are a few different medications on the market that can help to slow down hair loss and some that claim to promote hair growth.
Most often, medications such as finasteride (also known as propecia ) are given to clients and are reported to stop hair loss. However, it is important to remember, at current, there are no medications that can fully stop hair loss. With most medications, as soon as you stop taking them the hair loss will continue, and it’s also important to remember most hair loss medication do come with some side effects.
Hair loss medication is a good solution if you’re looking to either slow your hair loss down or stop it for a temporary period of time – if you wish to stop hair loss for good, it’s important to remember the medication will have to be taken forever.

Why am I losing my hair?
There are different types of hair loss and at Harley Street Hair Clinic we can treat all types of male hair loss.
Male pattern baldness is generally separated into three different categories. Androgenetic Alopecia is the most common type of hair loss and this is caused by two different types of androgens, called testosterone and dihydrotesterone, which work to change the hair follicles and break down the hair growth cycle.
Hair loss can be due to conditions other than androgenetic alopecia, and these conditions fall under the bracket of non-pattern hair loss. They include Trichotillomania, Alopecia areata, triangular alopecia, scarring alopecia and loose-anagen syndrome.
Telogen Effluvium is the last type of hair loss which is caused due a number of hair follicles entering the resting stage. This can happen due to your diet or if you are under a large amount of stress. During telogen effluvium, when the cause of the hair loss has stopped – e.g. you become less stressed – your hair should return to normal growth.
