What are the Pros of topical Finasteride + Minoxidil 8% + Retinoic Acid
Oral finasteride causes hair growth but has significant side effects of sexual dysfunction, decrease libido, and erectile dysfucntion
Topical finasteride has clinically proven, evidence-based, scientific data to show its efficacy in growing hair while lowering the risk of systemic side effects since it is not taken orally
Topical minoxidil exists over-the-counter as Rogaine. However the strongest version over the counter is 5%. Our formula contains prescription strength 8% minoxidil, for better results.
Topical Retinoic Acid has been shown in clinical studies to increase the efficacy of minoxidil. In fact, patients using topical minoxidil with retinoinc acid had to only use the medication nonce a day to achieve the same result as regular minoxidil applied twice daily.
- Topical compounded prescription-strength Finasteride, Minoxodil, Retinoic acid, Azelaic acid
- Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) & Stem Cell Injections
PRP utilizes the body’s natural healing process to help rejuvenate the hair follicles and promote growth. By separating the patient’s own blood, the healing and growth factors that are already in the body can be isolated in a concentrated formula, and then injected directly into the affected sites. Outside of hair loss, PRP injections have been shown to promote healing of muscles, joints, and other areas of the body.
By combining the PRP solution with additional stem cells, the healing process is sped up even further. The body will be signaled to repair itself, and damaged or dormant hair follicles can be restored. And as a result, hair becomes denser and healthier than before.
- Oral Propecia
There is strong evidence that oral Propecia works well for regrowing hair. However, the side effects profile is slightly troublesome. Over the past many years, a lot of my patients have complained about needing to take an oral medication that affects their entire body if they can very simply add a topical medication on top of their scalp, thus prompting us to use the compounded topical Minoxidil and Finasteride combination. However, some patients still choose to use oral Finastride and that is perfectly fine. It is important to discuss with your physician the side effects profiles, which include, sexual dysfunction, depression, and an abnormal increase in liver enzymes. There are ways to increase sexual dysfunction. If you’re interested in oral Finasteride, you can discuss it with Dr. Sean and he will guide you on how to minimize sexual dysfunction.
- Topical Minoxidil 5%
There is a lot of evidence that topical Minoxidil 5% works. However, it is not magic. It can be purchased over the counter. At our office, we compound Minoxidil to 8% and combine it with topical Propecia, Retinoic and Azelaic acid to boost the results.
- Laser Cap Treatment
Laser cap treatments LED lights does work for some people. However, it is not perfect and does not work for everybody. Unfortunately, the cost could be a factor for some people. However, it is also a solution that one can add to a regimen to get better results.
Medical Non-Surgical Solutions to Hair Loss
There are many modalities of non-surgical solutions to maintain and regrow hair. Below I will list the most important ones.
As an overview, seeing over 20,000 patients, we have realized that what people mainly want are medications that are evidence-based, carry the least amount of side effects, and have the highest level of efficiency. With this said, over the past years, we have searched literature for evidence-based medications that work. Although Finasteride orally works well, the potential side effects are a cause for concern and a lot of people shy away from it. Further, people do not want to take an oral medication that may have effects on other systems just to help with hair loss, where a topical medication can be as or more effective.
Over the past many years we have done a lot of research on the literature and we have found that topical medications are very effective (see below for articles on evidence-based medicine). In short, we can give patients a topical solution that is a compounded form of Finasteride, Minoxidil, Azelaic acid, and Retinoic acid. This combination works well.
The topical version of Finasteride carries a minimal side effect profile compared to oral Finastride, but has a very similar efficacy. Combining Minoxidil and Retinoic acid increases efficacy of Minoxidil. Adding Azelaic acid independently also increases the efficacy. These medications are compounded together by a compounding pharmacy in a solution that can be easily applied to the scalp twice a day. Below are some examples.
Since this is a compounded medication, we can easily change the concentration of the medication or remove medications that specifically patients do not want and create a special formula individually for patients. There are 6 variations of the compound depending on many factors. For information about this compounded topical solution, please call the office and set up a consultation with us (310) 315-4989.
