Propecia®, (1 mg finasteride) a prescription-only hair loss treatment drug constitutes the first Rx product clinically proven to grow hair. Demonstrated effective under several well-designed studies, Propecia® represents perhaps the best pharmacological approach to androgenetic alopecia yet created. Originally derived from the prostate drug Proscar® (5 mg finasteride), Propecia® arose after hair growth was noted as a side effect in patients undergling Proscar® therapy.
Widely prescribed for more than fifteen years, Propecia® represents a signficant revenue stream to Merck®, the pharmaceutical powerhouse that originally developed the drug. Propecia® has generally proven to be clinically effective in the intended patient population. However, there are several caveats to the use of this drug. First and foremost, serious side effects can occur. These include gynecomastia (male breast enlargement), loss of libido, reduced ejaculate, and feminizing birth defects. According to the manufacturer, Propecia® should never be used by women under any circumstances. And the literature suggests that some negative side effects may persist even after discontinuing treatment.
By way of contrast, it is useful to point out that the gentle, non-invasive drug-free formulations comprising the HairGenesis® product line have been successfully tested under numerous well-designed studies, including peer-reviewed, IRB-monitored, placebo-controlled, double blind conditions. Additionally, HairGenesis® is supported with an ongoing R&D infrastructure which has resulted in the development of seven generations of continually-improved formulations.
Partnering with university-based research collaborators at State University, New York (SUNY) and elsewhere, HairGenesis® has developed proprietary systems wherein a dual-mechanism of action means that our formulations work in multiple ways to protect and revitalize thinning scalp hair. We've also pioneered a proprietary delivery system to optimize the efficiency by which the active substances are taken up by the target hair follicles. We've also backed our hypothesis with critically peer-reviewed and published data. And there are also patents pending on the discoveries we've made.
Of note, our latest formulas have been shown to block micro-inflammation of the hair follicle as well as inhibit the negative consequences of 5 alpha dihydrotestosterone -- a pathogenic metabolite of the steroid hormone testosterone (T). This means that HairGenesis® helps revitalize your hair in more than one way. While consistently excellent clinical results are now evident, because HairGenesis® is run by hair loss experts, not marketers, you can expect that as time passes, the results you achieve will continue to get even better.
