|Minoxidil vs Propecia
Minoxidil Solution is composed of the active ingredient minoxidil 5%. Minoxidil was originally discovered and used to treat heart disease for its ability to increase and improve blood flow through the arteries. It was soon discovered that minoxidil patients were growing some hair on their scalps where they previously lost it due to male pattern baldness. The drug was tested and approved for topical treatment on the scalp. While all the properties of Minoxidil Solution and its abilities to grow hair are not understood, it is clear that one of the principal ways that Minoxidil Solution grows hair is through increased and improved bllod flow to the follicles which brings more nutrients and promotes healthier follicles.
Propecia on the other hand works in a completely different way. Propecia is an oral medication which inhibits the production of DHT, a type of testosterone in the body. Accumulation of DHT in the scalp has been shown to be the greatest factor in the dying of hair follicles which is associated with male pattern baldness.
Propecia and Minoxidil Solution in Combination
Since Propecia (finasteride) work in two totally different way, they both can promote positive results in their own way for stopping hair loss and re-growing hair. For some men one of the drugs works better than the other and vice versa. By using both Minoxidil Solution and Propecia (finasteride) in combination, you can greatly improve your chances for hair growth and maximize your results .
