Hair Loss Treatment With Dutasteride

Treatment with Dutasteride is a pharmaceutical way to slow down hair loss.

Dutasteride is a drug that until recently was administered to patients suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia. However, it is now proven to be a very active substance in the “fight” against hair loss. Its action is similar to that of finasteride, although its action appears to be stronger because it inhibits the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone by inhibiting two different enzymes instead of one that finasteride inhibits.

Who can get this specific treatment?

This particular treatment can be taken by both men and women suffering from severe hair loss, which can lead to a high degree of thinning. However, its use by men is not recommended as it can lead to gynecomastia and a drop in libido. It is either administered by injection into the area showing thinning or taken orally in pill form. Women are given it after menopause.

Does treatment with Dutasteride work?

This medication only has an effect during the period of time in which it is taken. Moreover, it is effective only when the hair loss is at an early stage,the drug is not able to reactivate hair follicles that are no longer active.

Which people are not allowed to take this treatment?

As with finasteride, so with dutasteride, undesirable side effects may occur if the drug is taken in the following cases.

In particular:

  • It may not be used by women during pregnancy.
  • Men taking dutasteride are not allowed to donate blood before a period of 6 months has passed since the day they stopped treatment.
  • It may not be given to men who have a problem with their liver.

However, the most effective technique to permanently combat hair loss remains hair transplantation. More and more patients, both men and women come to our clinic. The success of hair transplantation is guaranteed. In our clinic, we mainly recommend the FUE method, for the best aesthetic result.
