The effectiveness of hair loss treatments depends on the cause of hair loss and the specific treatment used.
  • Minoxidil: This topical medication helps many people regrow hair or slow hair loss. It can take at least 6 months to see results, and you need to keep using it for continued benefits.
  • Finasteride (Propecia): This prescription pill is very effective for men with male-pattern baldness. Studies show it slows or stops hair loss in nearly 90% of men, with hair regrowth in about two-thirds.
  • Spironolactone: This medication is prescribed for women with hair loss and can be effective, but it's important to consult a doctor due to potential side effects.
Here are some general points to remember about hair loss treatments:
  • It typically takes months to see results.
  • Most treatments need continuous use to maintain their benefits.
  • Treatments may not work for everyone.
If you're considering hair loss treatment, it's important to consult a dermatologist to diagnose the cause of your hair loss and discuss the most effective options for you.
